happy friday! 

it's been awhile since i penned a favorites post. i've got a good mix so i hope you'll enjoy checking them out. we've been waking up to an early morning cooler breeze so there's a bit of a fall season weather tease right here. i'm hoping it will be way cooler this weekend. we had heavy rains earlier this week which i think brought about this gentle breeze we feel early morning.

life lately

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

i promise i didn't abandon this blog. reality life took over and ultimately that's my priority. the summer has been an absolute blast for us and the last few days was kinda hectic. i got aston ready for 3rd grade. we shopped for school supplies and completed yearly checkups. we also took a few last minute trips to close out summer. i'll share some of our pics below. 

this week is his first week back at school. everyday he's been excited to share details about his new friends, classroom and teacher. i am optimistic that this will be another great year for him. today is day 2 and we still got new routines to get used to. i am back to my carpool duties and early wakeup call as well.





scenes from our last two trips this past summer, destin and chicago. just a brief change of scenery for us before school officially started! 

i'm hoping to keep this blog rolling more as i settle back into our routine. in the meantime, i'm still busy in IG, if you care to scroll. thanks and have a great day! 

modern bohemia

Friday, August 21, 2015

there's a new sought after line of dresses and blouses from ukrainian designer Vyshyvanka by vita kin. i call them modern bohemia but they're really the designer's salute to folklore slavik and ukranian inspiration showcasing beautiful bell-sleeved silhouettes, intricate embroidery and darling tassels. the line is hard to find but will be in big fashion online retail stores net-a-porter (this is available) and matches may restock soon. they sell out quick and fast. stalk the designer's instagram, where she updates latest styles and designs. they frequently post where the line is currently available to buy!
