this past week

I wore this outfit inspired by 
this inspiration monday of two birds challenge.

My dress and shoes were thrifted.

This week's inspiration was:
Kerry Washington

I admired the outfits of Kerry Washington's
 character Olivia Pope worn in the TV show Scandal.

I drooled over these black and white 
Juicy Couture Runway Looks.

I laughed over these fun photos
of my nephew Speed Racer.

I was glad to get some photos of
my twin nieces and nephew.

I read and enjoyed these 3 books:

1.Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham
(Yes, that's the actress Lauren Graham of Parenthood & Gilmore Girls).
2. Here I Go Again by Jen Lancaster
3. The Art of Forgetting by Camille Noe Pagan

I scrapbooked my Florida Palm Tree photos from our West Palm Beach, trip in August of 2007. 

I relished the cooler Autumn temperatures outside.


  1. I really enjoyed your palm trees journal pages! Have a great weekend!

  2. I never heard of that show, but then again I haven't had cable in years

  3. oh I love the sunny vibe of your relaxation photos! looks just perfect :)
    and your thrifted dress looks as good as those runway ensembles in my opinion. black & white create such strong outfits, especially when there are patterns and prints involved. a pretty magical combo, I think.
    by the way, Florida sounds like a fairytale to me because I've only seen it from TV, haha. I really like your vacation collage!

  4. I like the spin you put on the inspiration photo with your bow necked dress. It reminds me of a post I did a while back where I added a thin black scarf tied in a bow to a blouse.

    I haven't watched Scandal but seeing those photos, I kind of want to for the fashion alone! All three of those coats are swoon-worthy.

  5. LOOOOOOOVE your dress!! I would wear that now in my Springtime!!
    Olivia Pope is one of my favourite dressers, she's always so chic!
    I did not know Lauren Graham wrote a book, I must check it out! Is it any good?

  6. what a great dress, just love the pattern on it

  7. You might think I'm full of it, but Kerry Washington's stylist was actually my high school girlfriend. Haven't spoken to her in years though.

  8. your posts are so much fun!!!! always draw a smile on my face, doll! those juicy coture looks are amazing!!!

  9. i love your dress and how fab is Kerri Washington!!! i especially love the bow on your dress. it is so cute. i'm obsessed with scandal!

  10. look at you in your sassy dress! you look so cute! and i fear it's past time for me to be barefoot anymore this year!!

  11. Love your dress! And your nieces and nephew are adorable!

  12. Florida Palm Tree seems a wonderful place to be, but in your garden on this awesome wooden chairs feels very wonderful too ;) ♥ Conny
