mount up, part iii

i was WAY into this, guys.  not pictured: complimentary hot apple cider awaiting pickers' return from the orchards, and freshly baked apple pie that i devoured in no more than 45 seconds the moment we drove away.  you all need three days in the mountains of virginia, trust.  next up for me: long weekend in the BIG apple (sorry, had to).  have a festive, leaf-crunching, any-sort-of-cider-drinking, happy halloween!

mount up, part i

i just dug out the first fleet foxes record and skipped to track #10.  corny?  don't care.  i wanted to go to the mountains, to confuse my ears as they popped, to lose cellphone reception, to hike until my legs ached, and mostly, to see these colors.  and lately, i've been living by this mantra that seems so simple but is actually pretty tricky.  when i want to do something, i do it.

etsy: supayana

a hundred years ago i was asked to walk in a little fashion show.  (apparently my really serious ebay vintage modeling reputation preceded me.)  this is hilarious because i am short.  but a friend of a friend's friend was coming to orlando from brooklyn to show her latest collection, and i said yes as soon as i heard the name: supayana.  i'd seen her pieces go for oodles on ebay, and loved her girly aesthetic and unique knack for piecing tops and dresses together in ways you wouldn't expect.  i met yana the day of the show and we really hit it off; i've loved watching her career blossom ever since.  the other day when she linked her newest endeavor on facebook, i immediately told her that i almost wanted to get pregnant just to stick my baby in these adorable pieces.  instead!  i'll show you all.  {supayana baby on etsy!}

pumpkin party

happy birthday, mama!  so very happy to oblige her one request: a gluten & dairy free pumpkin cake.  my iphone photo friendlies can tell you, this'll be the twelfth pumpkin thing i've ingested this month.  i've been chronicling.  and we've still got eight days of pumpkin-eating potential!  (how i've still got friends... hard to say.)  happy sunday, bundtcakes!

for lovers

sorry i've been m.i.a. all week!  i convinced these two chuckleheads to traverse through the mountains of virginia with me.  they dragged their florida girl over hill and dale ('dale' being a term i just wiki'd, i'll have you know) to see insane autumn leaves, breathe in cool fresh air, and appreciate some serious southern hospitality.  i've been wanting to do this for ages; i love honest to goodness octobers!  lots of photos soon.

sensing a serious theme in the garments i find inspiring lately!  i love the idea of demurely showing some skin; most of my recent clothing purchases have nodded in that direction.  and girls!  i'd get married in either of those bottom two numbers so fast...

100 flavors

last week might have been the slowest of my life!  lots of sugar (have you SEEN those crazy touch screen soda machines?!  100 flavors!  {don't be tempted to ruin your diet coke with the addition of vanilla AND cherry like i was}), lots of shuffling piles of clothing to different suitcases or different countries, lots of lovin' on other peoples' pets.  it was a wonderful week; the weather is so phenomenal in virginia right now... just seems like each day was 72 hours long.  but so much good television, right?!

it's thursday!  totally cause for celebration.  so how about this?  he wears those pants, she wears that dress (colors of their choice- i'm not a complete dictator!), and they sip soda while playing tic-tac-toe and hangman under some crazy rainbow garland?  i'm into it.
