That Time My Husband Called Me Ugly

9 April 2017

So, in a turn of events during dinner last night my dear husband may or may not have called me ‘ugly’.

I’d like to clarify that it was not his intention to do so and we have laughed about it many times since. 😉

Backstory: We bought a house (YAY!!) and have been looking at all of the floor plan options, kitchen ideas, layout, design ideas, etc. We were having a discussion about something house-related which is when I told him to ‘not be ugly’ as I could tell he was growing more irritated by the second.

His response? “No, you’re ugly.”
(immediately followed by us both bursting out in laughter as he knew what just came out of his mouth meant something very different than what he ACTUALLY meant to say.) 

Being married to a ‘foreigner’ never fails to bring a lot of laughs (both me laughing at him and him laughing at me, case in point: the way I get on a bike – like a horse, obviously…just like every American I know). Never a dull moment. 🙂

In other news, I am loving these silk (like) printed pants. They are cropped and wide, which is a shape that is very much in right now. What I love about the length of these pants is that they can be worn with flats or platform sandals later on this summer.

Also, I’ll be wearing shades until my allergies calm down. Like honestly, this is a very accurate description of how I feel today:

Stripe Everything

2 April 2017

Lately I’ve been loving everything striped.
What is it about this time of the year that brings out the (albeit small) amount of nautical vibe in me?

Stripes are fresh, can be worn casually or with class, and are appropriate for every age.
They are easy to pair with and add a touch of fun to just about any outfit.

Stripes also remind me of the non-chalant French style that continues to inspires most bloggers and fashionistas around the world (myself included).
I was in Paris last week and leather jackets, messy-hair-just-right, minimal makeup (like ‘i didn’t try that hard this morning’), stripes & scuffed up Stan Smiths were all the rage.

Dirty Stan Smiths from last year? No problem.
Slept through your alarm and don’t have time to wash your hair? Dry Shampoo (the messier the better).

So let’s all embrace our flaws because trying to be perfect is SO overrated (and exhausting).
