Yesterday I met up with Olivia again for some coffee and to chat about future plans for South Bay Bloggers as well as our individual blogs. If you haven’t checked her blog out yet, then you are doing yourself a disservice. That girl is pretty awesome and she’s running a really cool blog over there. The weather was so perfect for sitting outside the coffee shop, sipping on iced coffee, and talking about fashion/life.
After coffee I made a brief stop by my father’s house here in San Jose. He has really lovely herb, flower, and vegetable gardens growing in his backyard. I had my brother, Rory, take these photos for me. He’s proving to be quite the creative, on all fronts. It was nice to capture some snapshots documenting the nice weather today and one of the very few days this month that I put on makeup.
Of the flowers growing, I loved the sweet peas most. Each child in my family had a nickname we were called as infants and mine was “Sweet Pea.” (I’m going to guess this was due to my intensely pleasant, fragrant smell—even as a baby.) Did you have any family nicknames from when you were younger?
I found this bag at Target the other day (similar here and here) on sale for something like five dollars. I believe these flats are a bit old but also from Target (similar) but everything else is thrifted, old, and/or missing the tag. Yes, people, this is how I roll. I might look “presentable” (or I might not) but I seriously couldn’t tell you how this top or this sweater ended up in my closet.
I’m sorry… I know you think you are done looking at pictures of me, but I saved you the best for last:
