H ELL O Halloween Tune .

Hello Halloween .
And H E LL O to you once more .
This Hallow's Eve there is one song I am L O VING more than ever .
My boy says I tend to say that quite often , but I am convinced that there is no better song for me right now than Florence + the Machine's very first single off of their newest album , Ceremonials .
And that would be ' Shake It Off ' .

9 3 . 3 has been playing this tune non-stop + for a perfectly good reason . Not only are the lyrics to love , but the Britain beauty , Florence , is incredible + the music video is full of masquerade charm . Ghouls + a real Halloween dance party . Perfect for a day such as this .

And oh , does miss Florence Welch make me miss that red head of hair I had throughout the sweet summer months . Ahhhh . L O V E .

This album is officially on my wishlist .

Ahhh . Singing it A L L Halloween day long .

Take a listen , won ' t you ?
Happy Halloween , darlings . X OX O

Whimsy : P ROJ E CT AN TH RO

Oh . Anthropologie . 
P R OJ E CT A N T HRO P O LO GI E






When , oh when , I ask , will the day come that I do not happily elope from my crazy little world to your big bright doors + feast marvelously upon the the goodness of your design + displays + prints + textures + type .
All of which create this brand new crazy little world within my head that spins round + round endlessly with no avail until these thoughts + ideas + inspirations are poured through the lead of a pencil onto a 3 X 5 index card in my office .


That's where those ideas + inspirations go . Out of my brain + onto a lined index card . Whew . They are safe there .


The other day in Anthro I was once more inspired to really truly , absolutely make an effort towards the bedding of my dreams : Anthropologie Rosette Bedding .


And even after all of the inspiration a girl could want in this world , Anthropologie , I also ask , when , oh , when , will the day come that I do not longingly love upon one of your goods , only to gasp at that charming price tag hanging daintily from a corner .


And S O , dadaDA , this is my new P RO J E CT AN TH RO : Part One + Two .


Isn ' t it lovely ? Quite a task . But a lovely one at that . And a seemingly lovely task for a little thing called F ALL B RE A K , right around the corner . Sigh .


Sounds WH IMS Y to me . X OX O

Weekend Whimsy : G u sh .

Two days + birthday celebrating + clothing swapping + pumpkin pie + a M I L L I ON stylized wedding photos + a batch of M + M cookies + pumpkin spice lattes in the park + costume scavenging + many a kitten meows from sweet Harriet + one F A R too small vintage wedding dress dream later , hello Monday . 

That sums it up quite well , but oh what fun it was . 
And I C AN  N O T  wait to share the photos from the stylized wedding shoot that took place on Saturday afternoon , to promote my friend , Elizabeth ' s , brand new event coordinating business . Elizabeth Bradford Designs organized the event , along with Joelle of Sarah Joelle Photography , Emily of Fern + Flora , and me with some W H IMS Y  L OU goods . 

It was enchanting . By a bridge . Under a tree . Lanterns hanging . Table awaiting . Flowers enchanting . Vintage galore . Lace curtains blowing in the wind . And , of course , a sweet couple much in love + willing to put it all out there for the camera to capture . Naturally , my camera battery died within the first few minutes we were there . So , I will be patient + gush on + on + on until Joelle ' s first sneak peeks arrive . Also , I am S O ready to plan another wedding .  I think the boy + I shall do it all over again just for fun . 

Like this .

Oh , what more could this girl love ? I suppose she could love Scrabble + chili nachos with her boy .

Sincerely , Lou : M or e V i sion

I have been searching + wondering + pondering just how I want to be putting together a vision board that will perhaps begin leading me somewhere to do something new with my life :) There are so many visually crazy wonderful ways to do it + with no help from Pinterest , I will most likely end up with 3 2 different vision boards throughout my home in no time . I have no doubt my vision may change over time . Many shades of all of the best colors . 
You know ? Many visions , just so it doesn ' t turn into : 
but is more like 
 I S
