jewel tones and cartwheels

well, I'm wearing another calico dress, but this time in teal (or is it turquoise?). Normally, a dress this style would be too boho for my taste, but I was drawn to it because of it's jewel tone colors that just happen to compliment these new Nine West shoes I recently purchased. It is getting harder and harder for me to wear high heels, but these shoes are pretty comfortable, especially considering their 5 inch heel.

These photos were taken at my best friend Desiree's new house. She hosted a family housewarming & birthday party for her sister. Her family is from New York so they are naturally gregarious & boisterous & her house echoes so it was pretty loud inside. It actually kind of sounded like New York in the abode. Outside the house, Desi's niece was doing back flips & one handed cartwheels all over the yard, and Desi's sister's puppy, Max, was just as nimble. Did you see the height he can get? I am so inspired by Desi's gymnast niece. She once led me in one of her workouts and I tell you, it was one of the hardest work outs I've ever endured. I am pretty flexible, but I really wish I could contort my body more. There was a gal in yoga class yesterday that was so flexible, I nearly tore some ligaments competing with her. Of course, competition is frowned upon in yoga, but she didn’t know that I was competing with her, and I can’t help myself. I hope one day I can do a handstand on a whim, and when I do, I’ll be sure to show you.


  1. The dress is very cute and you look lovely, I am jealous of your hair. I want to take up yoga I am so un-flexible it is a joke I have never done a roly poly in my life, true fact, so you are far more nimble than me!

  2. These epitomize a retro california that I never knew, too young to know.

    Aaaand you're adorable.
