Funfetti Sweater Weather



Happy Monday!
This Monday actually feels like a joyful one because we're nearing the end of the year and the start of new beginnings! I cannot wait for tomorrow, NYE, and ending what seemed like the most stressful year of my life. However, I will say that this year brought me so much good (i.e. graduating college, vacations and weekend trips, amazing concerts, being in a relationship with my best friend, acting in a music video, rekindling old friendships, and starting this blog)!

Another great experience 2013 has brought me is this gorgeous Lush 'Make a Wish' funfetti colored sweater. Recently, a clothing company called For Elyse reached out to me about sponsoring my blog! I took a look at their website and was absolutely delighted to work with them. I seriously had the most difficult time choosing what I wanted, I love everything they have! After browsing their site for awhile this sweater caught my eye. It's incredibly warm, fuzzy, long (in which case I can pair it with leggings) and has really fun rainbow speckles throughout it. I'm already thinking about the billions of ways I can style this gorgeous top.


I wore this outfit over the weekend. It was BEAUTIFUL on Saturday so I didn't have to wear a jacket and busted out my purple Ray Ban 'Youngster' sunglasses. Ian and I decided to go take pictures, walk around, and read at a coffee shop. We both happened to buy each other books for Christmas. He got me Grapefruit: A Book of Instructions and Drawings by Yoko Ono and I've been obsessed with it!! This book is everything I could ask for: it's humorous and sweet, makes me smile and is constantly encouraging the readers to think more creatively or abstractly.

COLOR PIECE
Visual world not exactly shaped –
Sense of smell, anticipation, senses that
are not exactly shaped —
Dark shadows casted –
Rat colors with faint hairly smells and pale
dark spots like those on a transparent sheet
of celluloid –
Rose color with a glitter and softness that
is cool and motional –
The kind of color that does not exist by
itself but only when it is casted between
two moving objects –
The color like a remaining stain of illusion
on a moving object –
The color that only happens when movements
cut the air in a certain way and go immediately.
Use such color to tint your absent thoughts.
Have absent thoughts for a long time.
1964 summer -Yoko Ono
