"I am not offended. I thought that some people lacked a certain capacity for enjoying the uncommon, that is all. I might be down in the dumps a hundred times, but each time, I would clamber out again to good coffee on a lacquered tray beside an open fire. Luxury is not a necessity to me, but beautiful and good things are,"
-Anais Nin

Simple outfit that turned out not so simple after all for a normal weekly fam-bam din-din. I love family dinners, started off by a cup of three of coffee. I don't know what it is about family dinners that just always bring me back, maybe cause I've been deprived of actually enjoying those for a long time *hint on long list of food allergies* but now, I'm actually being a bit riskier (though not at all careless). I was kind of hesitant to purchase the leather vest at first. The one thing that drew me to it was that it was a beautiful shade of brown/beige---TAUPE? which I have always been a fan of. However, the hoodie got me all confused as I am not really a "hoodie" kind of girl. In the end, obviously, my love for the color won as I realized I had the perfect maxi dress to pair it with. I just love taupe + blue...it's so rustic and soothing to the eyes. Also, this outfit provided me with the perfect chance to wear my not so new Gold Dot wedges for the first time ever. Bonus!
