I found this floral dress in my mom's closet and sneakily commandeered it. Don't be fooled by how tailored it looks with a belt, because it's seriously muumuu-status without it. I'm actually not sure, but it may have originally been intended to be a maternity dress? Leave it to me to find the one, ill-fitting maternity dress in my mom's wardrobe and fall in love.

I didn't actually wear this dress to brunch (rather, coffee and scones) but I feel like it would be perfect for a Sunday brunch in LA. Plus, I figured it would be fitting to post this outfit today since it's the brunchiest of all holidays.

Happy Easter!

The second I saw this pin from Madewell's spring catalog, I knew I already owned very similar pieces to recreate the look. So, yay for Pinterest actually helping me shop my own closet for once! Knew it was good for more than just "healthy" dessert recipes...

Grain Of Salt

Okay, don't get annoyed but I'm trying out the "blogger" style of wearing my jacket over my shoulders. IRL, I would never actually do this...mainly because it literally falls off if I try to walk anywhere and also because it doesn't actually keep me warm. But, I mean, practicality isn't what blogging is all about...is it?

These days it seems more about the illusion captured in a single picture or carefully crafted Instagram. I guess I've just been seeing some shifts in the blogging world that make me miss the days of following grassroots bloggers completely uninfluenced by advertisers. This isn't to say that I don't monetize my own blog in some way, but I suppose my reminiscing is just a reminder that I always want to keep my blog as organic as possible. Maybe I'll take that statement back in a few years (although, I don't plan to), but no matter what I'd like to avoid taking myself too seriously. Everything with a grain of salt...
