dreaming of heels

Last night was fun. Nathan and I went with our friends Kate and Trey to a local beach and just sat and talked. I love those kind of nights. When you can sit with a friend and you dont have to speak and its not awkward. Thats one thing I love about Australia. The beaches. Growing up in Canada - I never got to see much of the ocean, and when I did, it wasnt the most pleasing. I dare every single one of you to jump on a plane and come see me in sunny Aus. I will teach you to surf, show you kangaroos, and sit with you at night on a beach to hear the waves. Perfect!

I decided this morning that my mission for this year is to buy a pair of heels and wear them (atleast more than 5 times!)
I have only ever owned heels for certain things such as weddings, graduations, ect. I think maybe in total I have worn heels maybe three times in my whole life. Im very short though, so heels could be a good investment, I just live in fear of walking and falling, or sore feet, or looking foolish - you know the drill. Hopefully soon though, I will find a perfect pair of lovely heels!

My life is nothing too exciting today. In about 3 minutes, I will go make myself a good cup of coffee (thanks Mum and Dad for the starbucks!) and get back to this task of forming a website. Have an amazing rest of your day. Hugs and kisses. x


And yes..these are my prescription glasses! :)

  1. You look so adorable with glasses! You have such effortless style, goodness! And wearing heels more often is a resolution of mine, as well! I always LOVE the look of them afterward and I'm learning if you have a GOOD pair they aren't painful!

  4. I will certainly take you up on your offer! One of my lifelong dreams is to go to Australia. I know a couple of people who live there, and I'd love to see it first hand. My husband and I have even talked about moving there when he finishes his residency, since they always want American doctors.

    You're looking especially chic today!

  5. Woo cute glasses! Yeah I don't wear heels too often, only my wedges, just because they're cute and very stable and COMFORTABLE :) Love your floral dress, great print!

    I've been to Australia, I went there in 2005. It was a lovely experience, although there were a few bad experiences... sad. I want to go back there and take photos and explore more, I went there with my parents, so you know... the vacation is limited to what they want to do.

    You are so kind. Your blog is amazing!!! Oh adding you to my blogroll!

  6. You know, it was a high of 71 or 72 F here today-- and that's CRAZY for where I live at this early in the year. And so the thought of jumping a plane to Australia is just sounds so unattainably WONDERFUL.

    And I love your glasses! I find it funny how back when I was little, I loathed the idea of having really large, thick glasses, but now they're totally in style. :)

  10. Haha we're total opposites.. I on the other hand rarely wear flats. I recently got two pairs of them and they hurt my feet more than heels do at the end of the day. I guess I just hate my feel having almost direct contact with the ground.

    I love your dress&tights combination, so cute. :_)

    I'm already in Aus, so I'll just pop on over to your state and you can teachme to surf. I've never tried :)

    ps. Those glasses are freaking awesome! I was thinking yesterday I need to get myself a pair, this confirms it.

  14. I love that floral dress and those tights are wonderful...you must know I'm an addict!

    I wish I could come see you in Australia...Oklahoma is dreadfully boring and I'm surrounded by red necks with accent and no water whatsoever. Boo!

  15. I totally sympathize about the heels. I have never really worn them, and I don't know how to begin. I don't know HOW to. And I don't know if I WANT to--they hurt me, so very much! But good luck on the perfect pair anyway.

    I love your glasses. You can really pull those big frames off. You are beautiful!
