Hyacinth

•••
I did a spring look based off of spring flowers, specifically the hyacinth. This particular flower was my inspiration. I love blue and purple, and the hyacinth is really a gorgeous flower. It does have a lot of variety, too. This is the look that I'm wearing in my Soft Kitty Warm Kitty OotD post. This turned out to be a great look with my glasses. I'v[...]

OotD - Soft Kitty Warm Kitty

I did a little OotD for you. This shirt is still a work in progress as I'm trying to figure out what to do with the sides.

This past Saturday Judi invited me to join her for the Nordstrom Tampa Trendshow.We had the daunting task of getting up early to be there at 7:30. Since I'm on my normal sleep cycle right now, I typically go to sleep between 2 and 5am, and get up around 11:30 am. So getting up at 6:50 was hard! After a super quick shower, I made it out the door by 7:05 and m[...]
