Apothecary Love

I’m a huge believer in love. Not so sure of that marriage thing, but as I’ve spoke many times before, weddings make me weak in the knees and I tear up at the site of any genuine couple true. I hold no claims for my future, but for now, I’m perfectly content swooning vicariously through the images of Jonas Peterson. Have I introduce you to this mighty fellow? Ahem, let me do the honors.

I melt for these beautiful loves.

While we’re on the subject, have you freaking seen this yet? Yes. So screw weddings, let’s just throw a massive party with taffeta gowns, lace slips and satin covered buttons. We’ll serve raspberry scones and magic tea under a twilight sky. You’re invited: Writers in love, dreamed happily ever after. xoxo!

The Daisy Age

Well, I feel like the most terrible friend. Sorry my head has been lost in the clouds these past two months.  I mean this all too literally. I flew off for a life changing vacation to Hawaii for a hot/humid sec and have been completely swept away with paradise. I've been scouring Craigslist for surfing shacks and jobs on pineapple farms. Also, I turn 23 in just 3 days time and I feel it's time for some adventure. Exciting, yes?
I stumbled across these amazing photos of Lady Kate. It's a gorgeous spread for the old British mag, The Face, during the early 90's.
I love how fresh and natural she looks, with my favorite dangling side braid.
{Yes...those are Birkenstocks.}
The shoot reflected the hippie trend called "The Daisy Age." Unknown to me, the term "Daisy" was an acronym from 90's hip-hop band, De La Soul, meaning "da inner sound, y'all." Awesome.
After this horrible winter, I can't wait to be back in my Maui maxi dresses trotting through the mud at a summer festie. Between Kate Moss's feather headband and the recent lineups announced here, here and here, I have the biggest butterflies for sunshine and summer.
