Powder blue at sunrise

The sunrise was gorgeous yesterday morning through the pine trees in my backyard. Before going out to take pictures I thought it might be nice to grab this hat to keep the sun out of my eyes. There are pictures somewhere in my moms house of me at age 5 with my teddy bear running around the woods while I'm wearing this exact chapeau. Just slightly moth eaten and a little misshapen, it still makes my mom go Awww, whenever I take it out of the closet. It didn't work out to keep me from squinting, but the warm sunlight felt wonderful on my skin.
Powder blue is popping up all over in spring collections, so its a good thing I snagged this lovely blouse from H&M during their winter sale for $10. Its the perfect shade of sheer sky blue that I think looks lovely with jeans. Yea, the jeans, which hardly ever come out to play made an appearance. Casual Friday has me hooked and fiending for more, after a long week its so nice to sit unladylike in my desk chair while I work while dreaming about the huge beer that awaits me afterwards.

  2. I'm not sure if anyone's told you, but you remind me so much of Alexa Chung. :)) Except cuter! I love the mix of textures for the cardi and the blouse. Saving for inspiration!

  7. haha I opened your blog and BAM I saw Alexa Chung, but the NOT stick figure kind (and thus hotter version :D)! Gosh you are a total BABE and you should totally pimp it out because Alexa is THE itgirl and you look like her so your look is SO on trend, haha

    your outfit is supercute too, I'm into the simplicity and prettiness.

  9. Oh, this is such a lovely outfit. I love how soft all the colors you're wearing are, and that hat is the perfect little touch to the whole look. It's so cute that the hat has a little story to go along with it as well :)

  10. I love your hat, and the powder blue blouse is perfect with the jeans and for this time of year. Casual Friday is the best! I get it every other week, and it's such a nice way to end the work week.

  14. Ok so I read Annebeth's comment and was like YES. THAT'S WHO SHE LOOKS LIKE. You totally look like Alexa Chung but even prettier. I looove this color blue on you. Plus that hat & that nifty cardigan- so chic. I reeeally love the second to last photo. Oh and I totally relate to the 'sitting unladylike in office chair dreaming of beer' part. I don't often wear jeans but Fridays are probably when I wear them the most... and Friday beers are THE BEST!

  17. How fantastic that you can still wear a piece of clothing you wore when you were 5! I guess if it would be anything, it would have to be an accessory. I can't imagine fitting into any clothes from when I was five :)

  20. My dearest Kallie, sorry I've been away for so long but I had so much work..
    Now I came here and I read your post about that girl the other night and I just can't believe someone would ever say that to you like that! I'm really sad that you had to live that moment and I hope you are better now.
    Gosh, I don't even know what to say more. I remember when you shared your family history here in the blog and the holocaust escape..well, that just proves even more the supidity of people in judging others based on the skin color. Why do people stereotype or divide others into groups? religious, ethnic, wathever, is just stupid. We all come from the same place, and we are all humans and I feel really sad to read that there still are people like that girl.
