Happy/Lucky/Free

15 October 2010









10 things that make me happy:

1.)running into old friends and seeing that they are doing very well.
2.)Waking up in the morning after being sick for a few days
feeling refreshed and healthy
3.) Making the perfect on-the-go playlist, and rediscovering it
months later
4.) Black velvet coffee
5.) the excitement of waiting for a roll of film to develop
6.) The winter day I leave the house and realize I have to go
back in and get a coat
7.)long drives with lovely people
8.) collections
9.)phone calls instead of texts
10.)creating something; anything.

What makes you happy?
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. :)

Things that make me happy: Coffee, hot tea, sleep, winter, fires, being outside, fresh air, sleeping with no socks on, getting letters in the mail, riding in convertibles.

Love your outfit! Works great together.
At the moment my new camera makes my happy :))
Generally... so many things! The smell of dead leaves..the sun warming gently my face while the air is cold, buying high heels, drinking hot chocolate with my friends, laughing and singing my heart out!

I agree with #6 so much. I can't wait until it starts getting cold here! The first rainy day of the season always makes me happy, too.

Right now nothing makes me as happy than the certain news I have to share. I'm also loving neutral outfits and wearing warm sweaters.

Such a long lean outfit - love it!!

I like ginger beer, melty brie and red wine vinegar.
I like it when I notice things others don't, like the tiny flowers that grow in the grass and nests in trees. Or the stitching in fabric.
I like pretty boy-style clothes on girls.

soph (owl vs. dove) said...

I'm loving the proportions of this outfit. That cardigan is such a lovely colour too

ahhh I just adore your blog! I have been a longtime follower and lurker I just thought I better tell you how much i love your blog! I just can't get enough of 90's florals either and I always love how you mix it up!
Your blog, 90's florals, finding the perfect dress/ shoes at the thrift store in my size and 1960s heavy winter coats make me happy!
