Golden Glare

Ellie Goulding -- Lights

This song has been stuck in my head for the past couple months. Her voice is so lovely. I might be willing to give up my camera for a week to see her in concert. :) 

{Boots: DSW -- Tights: H&M -- Dress: Dahlia -- Coat: Goodwill ($2.00!) -- Beret: UO}

This is one of the Dahlia dresses I bought from the Modcloth sale a few weeks ago. I've been waiting to wear it with tights, since it's on the short side for my long legs. Isn't it the most lovely shade of lavender? Plus, there is a peter pan collar! My absolute favorite. How does Dahlia make such wonderful creations, all of them have me in awe. 

photos by Zach, thanks sweetie!

This weekend was terrific. As I mentioned before my father was in town on saturday night and then left on sunday morning. My boyfriend and I took him to a barn party with amazing pulled pork and a wonderfully warm bonfire. It was great to sit around and talk through the night, plus there was a harvest moon! We also went out to breakfast sunday morning and I had the best tasting omelet. Nom. 

After my dad left I went to the bike trail with my boyfriend's little sister, Molly. The bike trail by our house is on old train tracks {which they removed} so it's completely flat and runs through the forest. There is also a river that runs by right next to it. As we were riding along the sun was about to set and I could smell fires from houses near by. I had this cozy warm feeling of happiness and it was the first time this year that I am excited for the upcoming holidays! There is no better time then around Christmas and Thanksgiving. Lots of family get togethers and gifts and amazing home cooked meals. 

Speaking of gifts, tomorrow is Zach's birthday! We are going out to dinner at one of the Japanese restaurants where they cook all the food right in front of you. I'll definitely be ordering shrimp and veggies, yum. I can't wait for him to open up his gifts, I promise to take pictures!

Have a great week everyone.

That dress looks like perfection on you! The colour, the way you combined, it all is so wonderful! And these pictures are gorgeous. I have the same dress, but in an ice blue colour, but it really doesn't look that good on me as it does on you!

Your new dress is adorable! The color is so girly and sweet. Your jacket it awesome too. I love how versatile it looks. Perfect for fall.
