  5. That is one of my favorite quotes of all time. I haven't read that book yet, but it's the next on my list after I finish Everything is Illuminated. Jonathan Safran Foer has the most amazing quotes!

    And again, with your perfect sunlighting! I'm jealous of this "gene" you have where sun bounces right off your skin making such a pretty picture. Oh wait, YOU are wait makes a pretty picture! Hehe, you look lovely!

  7. Beautiful. I love the tied up cardigan. I have never thought about doing that. Sometimes leaving them down looks so frumpy! It looks great.

  15. Oooooh, look at you lookin' so ladylike. When I was little my mom had lots of heels like that and would put them on and think that I was such a lady and that when I grew up I would only wear shoes like them. Yeah, still waiting for it to happen to me.

  26. I like not being on blogger all weekend and having this be my first post to really come to! The length of that dress is to die for, and I love the spring like shades. Definitely a nice offset to the snowy background.

    You photos are always so damn pretty! <3

  32. absolutely beautiful! I love that dress/skirt.. I can't manage to pull off something that long.. maybe it's because of my hair? I want it to grow out so badly! Yours is glorious! :)

  34. I love this outfit not only because of the color pairing, but because its completely different from what I've been seeing everywhere. The short cardigan with the long dress and heels is just perfect. Love it :0)
