The weather has dipped below 70°, school is in full swing, and I can finally wear my boots and cardigans again. All is right in the world!
If you know me at all, you know I'm in love with bright colors, and wear them despite rainy or wintery weather, when the universe seems to have this power over other people, telling them to dress as dreary as the weather is. It makes no sense to me, really. Why wouldn't you want a bright yellow umbrella to brighten up a rainy day? What is the point of a boring, black umbrella?
Then again, I've been recently obsessed with darks -- rich, "fall" colors -- and wonder to myself if this relationship with brights and prints and color on color can last forever.
As a supporter of open marriages, perhaps I can convince bright colors that I need to have an affair with the dark side, but that it won't mean that bright colors aren't my one true love.
Still trying to find a good place to take photos in my new apartment - the windows are tiny and not so plentiful, so lighting is hard, but we do have a backyard, so when I have time and a buddy, outdoor photos are totally happening,
Stay tuned for before and afters of all my apartment decor projects!
Happy end of summer days! But seriously, Happy with a capital H. Because although summer is great, I am dying to start school.

Haven't taken an outfit picture in almost two months! But I'm heading back to Providence tomorrow to kick off SENIOR YEAR with a BANG so I'll be taking more outfit pictures, I swear! (And hopefully I'll have stories to share and some real writing to post.)
How do people come up with creative names for dishes? I'm not a chef or even a cook - I mostly just throw a bunch of things together and call it a day. But since the apartment I'm subletting is so well-equipped with the quintessential white bowls and plates necessary for food photography, I thought I'd give it a try.
We had some leftover turkey from our turkey sliders, so I cut them up into bite size pieces and sauteed them with some mushrooms and the frozen grilled corn from Trader Joe's. Then, I added balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, tomato sauce, and white wine to create a sort of gravy.
