miami swim week is over (for me) and also, my voice is gone. that usually happens though! i'm fully run down from all of the sun and non-stop go go go, but today i am working from home and trying to get ready for the move simultaneously.
these are from my 1st day at swim week on friday night. i escorted my cute husband as my date, and we made some magical memories with my favorite miami people. the sunset from the top of the Raleigh was unreal, and there was even a rainbow after it poured! the Wildfox show-- which is always my favorite show-- was nothing short of amazing. it was fun, light hearted and filled with pastels, florals and flirty sayings! my favorite looks are above. i will be back with tons more photos. xo
we moved into our south beach apartment in october of 2012. i had just been promoted to full-time visual merchandiser at j.crew, matt was not even freelancing yet and we found it from a lucky craigslist search. we knew it was "the one" right when we walked into the courtyard. i always take a long hard look at empty apartments before i move all of my things in, and try to picture everything the future has in store within the walls of not-quite-home-yet. this one brought us so many beautiful memories.
we raised little claudie in this home, i can remember her as a 2lb puppy walking around. matt proposed to me in the apartment, right near where my chair collection sits. we've had way too many fun potluck dinners and parties (and have probably pissed off one-too-many neighbors.) i've pranced around with good news, cried many a nights curled in a ball in my closet, popped champagne, cooked homemade meals, repurposed handfuls of vintage dresses, completed wedding DIY's. it will be bittersweet to say goodbye. here's some lovely moments captured.
