the shadow hunter.

despite feeling so down lately, I really do know that my life is a wonderful one. I know how lucky I am to have a fantastic husband who makes me so deliriously happy and so deliciously frustrated all at the same time. and I also know how lucky I am to have a husband that will bring me flowers "just because". I think that I must have the song, "the luckiest", on my brain since it was one of our wedding songs and I am getting ready for the wedding festivities this weekend. the packing frenzy is in full swing at our house right now. the most frustrating part of packing? most of my closet still remains packed from the move, so I CAN'T FIND ANY OF MY STUFF. can you tell things are tense around here? well, I will be packing the rest of the day and doing last minute errands before the drive on tuesday.
15 hours. oh. mmm. gee.
as for the outfit, I kind of love how the photos turned out. the black against all of the colors of the desert right now. don't let the sunshine fool you, it was freezing. the past week has been full of strange weather. these were taken saturday, and then sunday we had craaaazy monsoons. who knows. but, I literally tossed this on as I was running out the door for some dinner with the hubs and was glad I paired the purple with the black. isn't it fun when last minute outfits come together perfectly?

I wore one of my new busy bee lauren headbands. man, I love this one SO hard. it may be my new favorite. its the "jace" and comes from her line of headbands named after literary characters. I LOVE that they are named after some of my favorite characters from my favorite books. "jace" just happens to be one of my particular heroes that I adore. and if you've read the mortal instruments then you totally understand how I am channeling my inner shadow hunter here. wink, wink.

raise your hand if this headband is pretty much slaying you. yeah, I know.

anyways, many things to do today. :)
follow me on twitter this week and keep me company so that I have something to do on my extra long trip on tuesday. here's to the start of a fantastic week for all of you.



  1. Sometimes even when the best things are happening it can make you feel so down because things aren't settled...at least that is how I feel when things change. But, like you said, life is wonderful! :)

    I adore this outfit... you always have the best vision when it comes to getting dress. I am envious! Have fun at the wedding and good luck with the long drive... all I do all day is email so if you get bored you know where to find me. :D


    P.S. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! SO MUCH....for the award you left for me the other day! You are WAY too sweet!!

  3. Lovely print on the dress, you do look a little on the cold side in a few of your pics - bless you ... but whata pretty view to have your pictures in front of!!

    Love the vintage ring also.
