Sittin on the Dock

Yes, that fold in my shirt bothers me too.  Not to mention shots from the back of me just look weird.  

It has been one glorious weekend spent with my sister who took these pictures and my extremely talented friend Chris was also in town.  We ate, shopped, listened to music and caught up on life. I will post some pictures of a sweet vintage shop we found in Deep Ellum this weekend.  I was pretty impressed with it.  

My sister, cousin and I went to see THE CIVIL WARS last night and it was magical.  It was my second time seeing them and they really are a class act (despite the fact that we believe Joy Williams and John Paul White might be our generations' Johnny and June Cash- it's kinda creepy).  Also, the Staves opened up for them and they were extremely impressive.  Their harmonies were killer and there is nothing quite like having siblings voices blended into one lovely sound.  All in all, it was a spectacular weekend!

This dress was one of the Urban Outfitter's sale items I bought a few weeks ago.  I was inspired by Elsie and Mara to layer a bit and initially I tried the exact same look with a black button up, but it wasn't working as well on me.  It worked better for me with just a plain 3/4 sleeved shirt.  Anyhow, it's always great to be inspired by looks but then fit it to your own personal style.  That's how I felt with this one.

Moving on, I read Hunger Games this weekend and I'm officially a fan-like 14 year old- this is more amazing than Twilight ever had to the potential to be-fan.  Too bad I should only be reading theology books right now and not teen fiction.  Meh, I'll get my act together soon enough.  

OH one last thing, thanks to Tieka, I entered (and won!) a $40 gift certificate from InPink.  They have such a great selection of quality jewelry that I'm having trouble deciding what to get.  I know, life's so difficult right? Either way, just wanted to give a shout out!

Hope tomorrow is the start of a good week for everyone!

I love that dress and the detail on your belt. Oh, the Civil Wars! I saw them live over the summer. So enchanting. I wish that was my life and voice and band. Oh, I can dream.
