All Packaged Up

Today I left Texas for Washington D.C.  We were having beautiful weather back home and it's a bit cold here...it feels like winter all over again.  Which I'm not too crazy about.  I decided to pack at the last minute because that's just how I am.  I realize now that I really need to add some warmer colors to my wardrobe...I have lots of blacks and blues.

I brought my houndstooth coat that my parents gave me for Christmas and plenty of cardigans.  
I like ones with sparkles...
I brought about the only winter type shirt I own...this green cardigan.  I'm not usually a turtleneck kind of girl but the color actually looks good on me.  I also threw in a little fringe and one of my fav concert T-shirts.

I brought two pairs of jeans...a flare style and skinny jeans and some leggings.
I brought this pretty dress that I've already figured out how to wear as a skirt.

I've been wearing belts that cinch my waist lately and decided to bring a basic black and one with jeweled detailing.  I always travel with this heart shaped locket...my boyfriend gave this to me years ago when we first started dating.

I didn't want to bring too much with me because all I brought was a carry-on.  By the time I left this morning I had added a black ruffled blouse, polka dot tights, and a black heart shaped ring.  Anyway all this packing has made me wish for more floral prints, pastel dresses, and lots of sheer.

Is there a favorite piece of clothing that you always bring with you when you travel?


Crashing Waves

One of my favorite places to be is the beach.  There is something about it that is so calming and relaxing.    I hadn't been to the beach for a long time but we went recently for my brother in-law's birthday.  Although the water was freezing and it was a bit cool and windy I had a really good time. It's always a good time at the beach.


Everyday is a New Beginning

This morning I woke up for the first time without an alarm...on a Tuesday. It felt great :)

Yesterday was my last day at the job that I've had for the past 3 1/2 years.  I put in my two weeks so I could go to school full time during the day (I've been going full time at night).  School starts again next week so I have some time off.  On Thursday I'm headed to D.C. for about a week...I'm so excited for the things to come. :)

This is a pic I took from the beach...more on that to come.

I got lost Dreaming in a garden...

Is it possible to stay and just talk to the flowers??
