Here are a few of my favorite pretties:

I ordered this dress from to wear to my commencement ceremony.  It is made of the softest knit so it is very comfortable and flowy and a I love this shade of purple.  I'm going to wear it with gold strappy high-heeled sandals and simple jewelry.  Of course it will be covered up with a big green wizard's robe, but at least I know it's cute.

I finally ordered these sandals, after seeing them in the store and then looking at them online everyday for weeks.  I wanted a pair of gladiators last summer but never got around to getting them.  Then we went to Paris and everyone and their freaking dog was wearing gladiator sandals.  Everywhere we went.  Seriously, if my American accent and pathetic pronunciation of French conversational phrases were not enough to make me look like an obvious outsider, the fact that I was the only person in the Jardin de Luxembourg not wearing gladiator sandals was a dead give away.  I like to imagine I will feel very French and very chic wearing them now.

I like to wear a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation when the weather gets warmer but then sometimes I need something to matte out a shiny forehead.  This stuff is cheap and works like a charm.

It has been raining for twelve out of the last seventeen days here.  But I put this on after my shower and I smelled like summertime.

This is unrelated to personal care, but it makes out entire house smell delicious.  Everyone's house should smell like almond floor cleaner and peonies.  I think the world would be a better place.

The dining room is now finished!  Our flooring project is complete.  Now we can continue with the destruction project that Cooper has already begun.

  1. I LOVE the Neutrogena body oil. I have an enormous bottle in my shower and use it sparingly. I want it to feel special, you know? Using it daily = not so special.
