there’s so much to see on the internet.
here are some of my recent favorite finds – recipients of my “we can pickle that” edition
of the weekies
picture of the week:
so i’ve been in portland for approximately 10 minutes, and already eaten this delicious something. i’ve got about a million places to eat and only 5 potential meal times to squeeze them all in, but y’all, i’m totally up for the challenge.
needless to say, i should have pre-awarded my weekies instead of staying up late planning my meals for the next 2 days, but HEY, you can’t win them all (unless winning them all includes eating voodoo doughnuts and more of these burgerville fries, because then, my friend, you CAN).
so this week is a little different.
last friday, my friend laura tweeted this . . .
. . . and we all picked our jaws back up off the floor together, like after beyonce finished her half-time show. yes just like that.
because she was on to something, laura i mean. well beyonce, too, but that’s beside the point. and then laura went on to elaborate like only laura can in this post.
and i want you to go read it and talk to her there, but i wanted to point it out here to recognize the struggle that i have every time i write a dress for the day story. i don’t want to just talk about the clothes or how to wear this or that, and i can feel super frivolous flirting with that look-at-me-style world. for me, and this is just for me, it’s about finding the PERSON in my/your personal style, and giving us all a place to talk about the story we’re carrying around on our backs, and how we can choose to influence the things we can control with intention and a bit of fun.
i love what laura says here:
We’re better as we are, not as carbon copies.
what do you think?
how do you use the wonders of the interwebs and all the trends you can’t pretend you haven’t seen to your advantage? how do we get out from under fashion as a uniform and have fun with what makes us unique?
it’s a tricky line,
i say from my chambray shirt & skinny jeans,
but i’d like to walk it with you.
and obviously i’m awarding hollywood housewife the first blogger of the week award. (and the crowd goes wild)
may your weekend be full of your favorite flavor milkshakes.
linking up with the first falling for friday!
