roots and wings

 My favorite quote, that I love so much I had tattooed on me, pretty much sums up who I am. "Roots and Wings" means to know where you came from and always stay grounded, but spread your wings and follow your dreams. I'm so excited for my future - the remainder of 2013 is going to be such an amazing adventure and I cannot wait to see what the outcome of these next few months will be. I have such incredibly bright people in my life, and it's going to be so wonderful to watch them change the world.

This look was from a rainy night while having dinner with my sister. We ended up getting a little goofy at a bar after talking about creepy high school teachers and getting free shots of whiskey - not bad sister time if you ask me!

Pairing a neutral floral with a bright color is alright in my book - as well as combining a pattern with a texture (something I hope to do a lot of with home decor soon)!

That is a lovely quote. And the sentiment behind it makes it even more lovely.

Can I simply say what a relief to discover an individual who actually knows what
they're talking about on the net. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren't more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

I already told you on facebook, but your HAIR. Stunning. And this outfit is HOT. Love the low back with the skirt and you rock neon like I wish I could. Also I love foot tattoos and those sandals are beautiful.
