I'll be there when toil and trouble pop or burst or blow your bubble

I was so excited for the location of these photos that I had planned. The weather had other plans for me. Rain and lightning forced me to hide under my favorite tree near my neighbors' yard. Oh well.

Jewelry Contest

Finally, I am getting to this awesome contest with jewelry that I have recently become obsessed with. Amy over at Pronoia Studio asked me if she could send me a necklace and if I would be willing to do a contest. After browsing her etsy shop, I emphatically said yes!
Ok, so here's the deal:
I would like you all to send me an e-mail building an outfit around this necklace.

But the catch is that you have to build the outfit using only items from etsy (shoes excepted, as they are a little harder to find on etsy. I know. I've looked). Please be sure to credit the shops you use, so that I can do the same when I post the winner. Also, make sure to include your e-mail address so I can contact you. If I do not have your e-mail, I won't be able to name you a winner no matter how much I love your outfit. The contest will end on July 5th and I will announce the winner by no latter than the 10th of July. If you win, you will win the necklace above.
Now, go be creative and have fun!

Also, here is a little information about Amy and her shop:
Each and every Pronoia Studio piece is made entirely from hand without the aid of forms or molds. The nature of this sort of creation means that each piece is unique and special.

This necklace features a kiln-glazed ceramic pendant on a sterling silver plated (sterling silver) chain. The pendant is very durable and can endure warm/cool temperatures and water/cleaning.

Chain measures: 18 in

Chain can be resized larger/small upon request at no additional cost. Just add this information as a note upon purchase, or contact me ahead of time.

Pronoia Studio does ship internationally. Right now, the “fixed” cost of international shipping is $15 USD. However, international customers will be refunded any shipping expense that is not needed for shipping.

So You Swim Until You Can't See Land

It's hot outside and I injured my foot, which led to baby deer walking in these shoes. I quickly abandoned them and have an ice pack under the arch of my foot. I am currently sipping on a red wine that I purchased in Colorado's Wine country during Memorial Day weekend and watching really bad TV.

Care for Some Tea?

A friend of mine invited me over for a tea party and the viewing of the new Alice in Wonderland. She asked if we could dress up, so naturally I complied. I was supposed to dress up in vibrant colors, but instead I let the likes of the Mad Hatter and Alice herself influence my attire (with my own little twist, of course).

Dress: Miss Brache
Tie: Ball Park Flea Market
Top Hat: Ebay
Shoes: Miu Miu

P.S. Check in tomorrow for a really sweet contest!

I have been disgustingly absent from the blog lately. There is no excuse but I'll offer a brief explanation. I was grappling with the end of the school year-- essentially, I was in survival mode. Then, once school was finished, I became quite taken with the idea of not having to do anything at any given time. I've been taking three hour bike rides, eating healthy, going to farmer's markets, taking care of my hair, and sleeping in every day. This is my attempt to get back at blogging because I do miss the outfit posts. I don't really like the photos, but I'm a little rusty.

Dress: Go International Target
Ring and leg chain: Chains of Love

Necklace: Pronoia Studio (more on this in a day or two)
