Wear & Thoughts.

 I have a million thoughts running around inside me today. No specific topic.
I am trying to soak up some sun this weekend. Not looking forward to the gloomy week ahead of rain and low temps.
 I've been listening to Ray Lamontagne quite a bit lately. His music is very inspiring. Very soulful. Music is a huge part of my life. Ever hear a song and it reminds you of a particular time...or someone? 
I love that effect it has. Music is a wonderful thing. 
I'm excited to have my family coming to visit next weekend. This will be our first 4th of July in New York. I'm sure it will be eventful and lots of fun.

Scarlett eats like a bird. I struggle to find things to feed her. Any suggestions? She loves pasta, bread and wheats but I can't get the girl to eat fruits or vegetables. Strange since she loved vegetables when they were pureed. But now, Little Miss Independent won't let me feed her. 

Ty. He's always on my mind. I find it so intriguing that I can fall deeper and deeper in love with him as time passes. I expected things to grow...routine. And even though life inevitably slows down the excitement of any relationship, he still makes my heart beat faster. He still gives me butterflies. 
I have been working on my save the dates. I can't believe I'm getting married! It seems surreal. I always imagined I would marry. But it's actually happening now. It reminds me that I get to be with Ty for the rest of my life. Such a calming thought.
I'm digging dresses over skinny jeans. Like the outfit I wore below. 
Easy and effortless.

Sometimes, I wish I was braver. 
I wish that I had more courage. But I am who I am and I accept that. I work on my faults everyday. 
Some quotes that are with me on this weekend:

"Always remember, you are braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
"I may not have gone where I intended to go, But I think I ended up where I needed to be." 
-Douglas Adams
"A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor." 
Dress: Old Navy
Distressed Jeans: American Eagle

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.


  1. Super cute, I never would have paired the two together like that!!! LOVE!!!

  2. oh this outfit is adorable on you!! you are so pretty, girly. :)

  3. great outfit! Have you tried pureed vegetables over pasta? like a broccoli/zucchini/spinach pureed poured like a sauce, some of it goes in the mouth, I swear! Failing that I'm a huge fan of vegetable pancakes. Savoury pancakes with grated raw vegetables in them so that she can pick up the pancakes herself and they taste wheaty, ha. Googling should find you a bunch of recipes but if you want mine email me! violetlulublog{at}gmail{dot}com. Also, cannelloni works for us, both the cheese/spinach filling and the pumpkin kind.

  4. Love the dress and heels! I love pairing dresses and jeans...looks super cute on you! I hope you enjoyed a sunny day and take in a relaxing night.
    And Ray Lamontagne...he's husband and I have been listening to him a lot lately.
    have a sweet one!

  5. I'm so excited for you guys!!! As for feeding Scarlett... I wish I had advice! I can't get Liam to eat anything he doesn't like either.

  6. That's so exciting; wedding planning! Yeah, and I love music too (it's a big part of my life and my little one's too)! Great quotes by the way; love them! And how cute is your outfit! Love it! Looks great on you! The heels are my favorite! I can't help with the eating, my little one is a picky eater too and she's been eating less and less lately. Can't wait to see her pediatrician for her 2nd year check-up to ask about vitamins! She is only on Vitamin D now!

  7. My kids are horrible eaters. My youngest just turned one and I can relate! Have you ever tried those pouches with the purees inside that they can just suck out? It can be very mess so I do recommend eating outside, but they can do it themselves and they come in some good flavors- can hardly taste the vegetables! My 3 year old still eats them because the only vegetable she will eat are carrots! I've also been trying to cut out some milk. I guess she isn't as hungry because she's still getting milk everytime she goes to sleep-sooo hard though because I don't want her to be hungry!! Lastly, a specialist once showed me a chart with how much food toddlers actually need and it's hardly anything! It made me feel a lot better! They also said to not look at what they ate at each meal but rather what they eat over a couple days. Some meals they will eat practically nothing, even some days! Oh one last thing, they also told me it was more age appropriate to graze throughout the day than sitting for 3 meals, and once they are walking, eating as they go rather than sitting. Hope that helps some! And good luck. It can be exhausting making sure your children are eating enough!!

  8. Love the whole outfit!
