Everyone was so sweet about my smile issues. I appreciate that I'm not the only one that feels weird. And if you're curious, here's a candid real Maria smile, crooked teeth and all, captured by Cole.

Smile Like You Mean It

Smile Like You Mean It Smile Like You Mean It Smile Like You Mean It
Sometimes I have absolutely no idea what to name a post and this was one of those times. Luckily, I was saved from wrinkling my brain when I remembered something that happened during the shoot, rather something that happens during pretty much every shoot- Cole teasing me and trying to get me to smile. As you will see, he was quasi successful in the last photo.

For most of my life, I've never been a photo smiling type of person; I always feel that I end up looking weird, fake or very awkward, which I do. And the funny thing is my lack of smiling probably gives you all the wrong impression because if you met me face to face you would be surprised to find that I'm a smiling, laughing fool! No joke.

A Harvest Picnic by Dear Creatures

I'm so very excited to show you my new Dear Creatures Blossom dress! Isn't it so pretty with the scallop details down the placket and the faint gray striped fabric. I've had my eye on it ever since this fall inspiration post.

Aside from showcasing my new dress, I also need your help. The Delightful Dozen is putting together a fun project which we're all submitting photos for and I need to pick one of the horizontal photos from this post, but I can't decide which one. So if you would be ever so kind as to tell me which horizontal photo (the first, fourth or fifth) is your favorite, I would be so very grateful! I'm leaning towards the first since it shows the dress the best, Cole likes the fifth, but I would really love to know what you think.

Margaret Howell S/S 2011

I absolutely love British designer, Margaret Howell. Her designs are always so clean and classic, with a hint of masculinity and a dash of modern minimalism. Just my cup of tea.Margaret Howell S/S 2011 Margaret Howell S/S 2011 Margaret Howell S/S 2011 Margaret Howell S/S 2011 Margaret Howell S/S 2011 Margaret Howell S/S 2011

PBL: Why you should still trim your hair

I have the hardest time making myself get trims when I'm attempting to grow my hair long for donation. It feels so very counterproductive that I try my hardest to put it off as long as possible, but that isn't always the best solution.
PBL
The average rate of hair growth is about a half an inch (1.25cm) per month, and if you get your hair trimmed every 8 weeks, you'll have a total hair growth of about three inches per year. Since that's way too slow for people trying to grow their hair long for donation purposes, I suggest getting your hair trimmed every 12 to 16 weeks. But in order to wait that long between trims, you need to keep your hair in optimal condition. Which mostly means, stay away from unnecessary heat (i.e. blow dryers, flat irons, etc), take a daily multi-vitamin, and substitute conditioner for shampoo every other day.

It's best to recognize early on that not trimming your hair is a losing battle. Your hair will end up dried, fried and split. So get those trims and watch your beautiful healthy hair grow!

Laced with Poison

Laced with Poison Laced with Poison Laced with Poison
Some of you might remember a similar version of this look from a few months back. There is something about this lace romper that compels me to wear it with dot tights and my black felt hat. This time however I amped it up a bit with my JC platforms and wine matte lipstick. This outfit makes me feel very Stevie Nicks.

Sponsor Spotlight: The Little Chickadee

The Little Chickadee is one of the most amazing Etsy shops that I've seen in some time. Each vintage-inspired paper good is handmade with the most exquisite attention to detail. There is something so traditional and classic about silhouettes that I just can't get enough of. The Little Chickadee
