Craving Autumn

I go back home to Alaska for vacation in 1 month and I was considering getting a new jacket for the trip. I can't decide though. Trench? Pea Coat? Wool Coat? Motorcycle Jacket? Long? Short?

All of this thinking has made me long for fall. Unfortunately, here in Arizona, fall is still several months away. A girl can dream though...

Via modcloth. This would be so cute with some thick, black tights. 
Via modcloth.  Perfect for work! 
Via VS   I think I'm in love with this one. It'd also be amazing in the fall with some tights.
Via VS. Motorcycle jacket, so cute, but too trendy?
Via VS. I do love this one.

A pathetic throwback

Via here
Ok, a while back when I started this whole "Thursday Throwback" thing I said I had some super emo, lame, old blog posts to share. Well, lovely readers, today you get to see one. Feel free to make fun :)

Died Happy
My lungs feel full but yet I can't breathe, I lay there gasping. My eyes burn and struggle to stay open. My body feels like it is made of lead, there's no way i can ever lift it. My mind is going a mile a minute trying to save myself, trying to figure out how to get out of this, to stay alive. I'm drowning, drowning in thoughts of you.
All the memories we have come flooding over me and I'm overwhelmed. I cant get out of this, the more I struggle and try to push through, to save myself, the more I sink. I get my head above it all just long enough to breathe...but once I catch that breath it all comes crashing over me again and I'm under once more...

I think of you. The times we spent together, the day we met, the things we'd talk about, the places we'd go, the dreams we shared with each other. The times when you'd hold me in your arms, when you'd make me feel safe...when we were together.

Finally, my thoughts stopped, my lungs filled, my eyes closed and my body floated to the top...but I had a smile on my face. You always did make me smile.

Ahem, are you still there? Or did I scare you away with my depressing teenage thoughts?
I can assure you that I was not typically such a sad sounding girl but we all have our moments right?
I'm also happy to report that I'm an incredibly happy, alive, 20 something now :D

P.s. I'll be back to more with a fun post. Promise!

I was born to be a dancer

As promised, here are more gorgeous ballerina photos. I am just in awe of The Ballerina Project (also follow their blog ). I want so many of these prints and can't help but think they'd looking amazing pretty much anywhere in my house.
They make me wish I hadn't give up ballet at the mere age of 5 (just because my best friend quit!). I've always wished to be a dancer, I've got the long, ridiculous limbs, high arches and hyper extended arms...Think it's too late for me? ;)

I like how this one's different, more casual almost.
Look at that arch! and that hyper extended leg! This girl is my favorite.
Stunning background and I love the sophisticated black.
Almost grungy. I like.
I've got to be honest, I'd totally buy this if I could crop the ballerina out.
3 things I love, stormy days, umbrellas and a good trench coat.

Theres just 7 for now. You can expect to see a lot more popping up around here as I'm completely obsessed. I strongly urge you to go check at all (I mean every. single. one.) their photos.

Peace baby.

This home transformation has me in awe

A picnic box? I kind of love it. They could totally use it for work lunches too.

The girl who helped inspire my own 365  has started a 2nd set. I can't wait to see what she has in store for this year.

Simple and sweet wedding menus.

The interior is not my style but that facade and view? I'll take it.

An Anthropologie lovers dream.

p.s. More about that amazing photo above, soon.

Age is just a number

How amazing are these? I'm just in love with that second one.
Can you believe he is just 18? I'd say he's got a great career ahead of him and I'd love to have someone like him (or hey, even him!) do my wedding photos someday.
 Bonus: he's super cute too.
Check out even more of his amazing photos on his website at simonfilip.
