J. Crew Café capri in Safari Cat print - listen, it purrs..
Pants that I need. Pants that remind my Mom of Carol Brunett. I personally think, why not? My lovely friendmate (friend + roommate) recently purchased the linen shorts in this print. I plan to sneak into her closet, "borrow" the shorts and live in them. I'm sure she won't notice..until she reads this post..which will be awkward.
I was just cleaning out my desk draw and found some old birthday/college graduation cards written by my parents, brother and dear friends. Naturally, I re-read them all and got overly emotional (of course). Reading through all of them I realized, sometimes in life you forget what you mean to other people and you lose sight of how much of an impact you have. With that, I just want to say that I love you all and thank you for being in my life.
My roommate/friend has convinced me to read E L James' Fifty Shades of Grey- part one of a trilogy. Yes, it is listed under "Erotic Romance" and yes, it is all everyone is talking about. Looks like I'll be putting The Lucky Oneon hold and moving on to more..interesting reads.
What are you reading?
All my life, I've heard stories and dreamt of a place called Carini, Sicily. I'm so happy to say that this July, I'll be spending two weeks on the beautiful island! I can't wait to visit relatives, eat too much Sicilian food, walk amongst the lemon trees and take in my family's homeland. My Nonna recently asked me a question I've been thinking about as well - what clothes will I wear? I decided to look at some photos of my Mother from her previous Sicily trips and gather inspiration from there. After all, Mother knows best.
My parents in the town square of Palermo, Sicily. My Mom is wearing a sweater, now I know where I got my obsession from.
This is one of my favorite pictures of my parents. They look so stunning, and dare I say my Father looks a bit like John Travolta circa Saturday Night Fever?
My Mother in a gorgeous polka dot dress with my brother. I obviously wasn't in the picture, yet.
I can't wait to make memories like these come July. As for clothing, I'm going to keep my suitcase basic with blues, reds, white and black. Just like Mom.
