Hello, Color

Outfit details:
Bathing suit top (instead of a bra) - Victoria's Secret
Hair band, dress (worn backwards) - Forever 21
Necklace (used as a belt) - Ann Taylor
Earrings - Charlotte Russe
Sandals - Target

These photos were taken on Easter Sunday before going out with Zach. I recently bought this bright maxi dress after realizing that I didn't even own one. The sandals are also new; I feel that my wardrobe is now fully prepared for summer.

It feels strange to me, being away from my family on holidays. It's not that I don't love spending them with my boyfriend -- I'm truly grateful -- but my parents developed specific religious and cultural traditions over the years that I miss. Perhaps this is part of growing up and we'll have to create our own as a couple.

This year, we went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner (even though we're vegetarians) followed by drinks and a comedy show in the Yoo Hoo Room at Flappers. As you may already know, Zach's dream is to be a comedy writer and he's always looking for inspiration. For the record, he still makes me laugh every day.


  1. You are such a beauty and that dress loves you.

  2. you look gorgeous! love the colour of that dress

  3. I love the re-imagining of the many pieces (turning a belt into a headband) this communicated real style to me!

  6. You are a vision~
    I was away from my parents last holiday, so I can relate. It's so odd, really, out of habit.

  7. For some reason, your photos made me think of that song "Who's That Lady". You look amazing, and red looks vibrant on you. I really like that you used a necklace as a belt, and I love your headband!

    It is weird being away from parents during's definitely a tradition thing.

  8. You look amazing in these photos. Like some sort of goddess. I love the up close shots. My boyfriend, and I have been together around 5 years. The traditions we have created are my favorite. Like opening our Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve (which is also our anniversary). There is nothing wrong with missing those old traditions though. Maybe you two can blend new, and old traditions together.

  13. We went to Grandpa's Catholic church in Huntsville Easter monring. Then we hung out on the porch with extended family, and finally a wonderful dinner made by Uncle Ken (aka Red). You would have loved the sweet potatoes and the chocolate cake egg.
