in which i fancy november florals

I love this dress. It's so over-the-top bohemian and the bright colors make me smile. Dresses like this are the reason etsy is awesome. In other news, my bouffant just keeps getting bigger and bigger. K laughed at me this morning. I feel like Ms. J on America's Next Top Model, as her afro grows larger each episode (or shoulder pads, or whatever other tumorous growth she chooses to add to her getup that season).

Last night I drank wine and made pumpkin soup but unfortunately did not do any writing. I'm so bad. The soup was the best it has even been, though! It was such a pretty, vibrant mustard yellow and so flavorful! I used this recipe, but I left out the tahini (mostly because it seemed extraneous) and actually used the red lentils this time (in the past I've only been able to find boring brown). I think it made a huge difference. I also used a small pumpkin instead of a regular big one, which probably helped the flavor. I added a little cayenne while it was cooking and sprinkled some chili powder on top (but it didn't really even need any).

  3. I love your dress! How do you get your hair to stay?! Everytime I try to do my hair like that it falls lower like an hour later.

  4. Your hair is amazing, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. The higher your hair the closer you are to god.
    Also this dress is beautiful. Love the bright little flowers.

  6. Ahah! The first thing I noticed was the size of your bouffant! It really looks lovely. One of my friends has been trying to do one for a while and it just hasn't been working for her. She'd be totally jealous of yours. I love the dress and it looks really great with the tights and boots. Your outfits are always really well put together! Thanks for the recipe!

    I'm also enjoying how nice those yellow tights look with your dress.
