Home alone

necklace: super old, don't remember

This morning, Matt left for a week-and-a-half trip to Utah to hike through the Rocky Mountains. It's such a cool opportunity for him, and I'm happy that he has the chance to do this, but a big part of me won't rest easy until he's home safely. It's the longest hike he's been on (try three times as long as any other he's done) and at a much higher elevation, with a much higher difficulty level. He and his friend are both excellent at "surviving" (what they prefer to call camping/hiking), and I know they're more than capable of this trip. But still. It's gonna be a long almost-two-weeks all by my lonesome. It's the longest we've been apart in years, and it'll be the longest we'll go without talking since we started dating, as he doesn't have a cell phone signal at 15,000 feet.

Le sigh. Anyway. This outfit. Some lady at the grocery store just walked up to me and complimented me on this hair flower. It was a random impulse purchase as I was checking out at H&M...the day I bought it, I wore it clipped to my cardigan. Multifunctional!

These are the shoes I picked up to wear to Abby's wedding, instead of these guys. I'm thinking about selling them, because they're a tad too large and too tall and I can't really walk in them very well. Anyone wear a size 10? (Ally, I'm lookin' at you!)


  1. I love the hair clip! It ties into the top super nicely. That really sucks he'll be out of cell phone signal range. But I'm sure he's having the time of his life on the hike, it sounds pretty intense!

  2. Hey! Why are you lookin' at me?!

    You look so cute here. The hair-flower is adorable. And your poses! I wish I could get my body to do these.

    I'll buy the shoes from you. Seriously. I know they're gonna be tight (I'm a size-12 who can fit into a size-11 and, when I try really hard and don't walk much, can sqeeeeeze into a size-10), but because they're so pretty, I want to at least admire them on my feet. E-mail me with the price. Thanks!
