Raveneli Seashells and Scallops

Hello darling readers!
Boy did I have fun getting dressed this morning because I REALLY adore this blouse, I just can’t get enough of it. It makes me want to run to the beach and start collecting seashells for hours. Have you ever done that and isn’t it so fun to find no seashell alike??
I looked around in the closet for a while because I didn’t know what to pair the blouse with, and then – BAM! It hit me in the face! You pair seashells with scallops, duh! Thank goodness I got this skirt because it’s proved to be so versatile and unique with its fancy tiers and perfect cut. LOVE IT! Clearly I’m excited today because it’s capital letters-madness around these parts.

I finally started feeling like my old self again after the difficult-to-bear news we received the other week. It’s still on my mind and will affect us for the year to come, but I think it’s going to be allright and even though I clearly don’t see the purpose of this outcome, I’m hopeful that later it really will be evident that everything happens for a reason. I’m sorry that I can’t go into the details of what’s happened so I don’t sound so abstract, but for now I’ve got to keep a low profile.

Also, I want to thank all of you for your feedback on yesterday’s dress dilemma, and I’ve decided to take it back. I just have an itch for all these other pieces, and honestly, if I don’t love something, there’s my answer! All your feedback was super-helpful and helped me see things from different points of view. Thank you all ladies!

crazy shot!!

  1. What matters most is how you feel in something, so if you weren't "feeling it", then returning it was a good idea.Now this top-love love love. I might pick it up tomorrow. I get paid this week!

  2. Hmm, I never liked that top until now:)Things do happen for a reason, and even if you have to deal with something really difficult, you will come out stronger. Wow, that sounded like total cliche-junk-speak, but trust me, you can make it through anything and it just makes you more alive.
