winter garden

these pictures are slightly blurry, but that's the weak wintery sun for you. good thing spring is here so will have prettier, brighter pictures very soon. anyways, this is how i do a winter floral, layered with a sheer shirt, socks over tights and cozy ankle boots. i walked from one end of toronto to other this day, over 4 hrs round trip and stayed cozy/wozy.
i always pick walking over driving.

i've been living in the tunic all winter.
i can't wait to get my hands on some of wildfox's spring/summer western collection.

appetite for destruction

cool, dry days are perfect velvet shoe weather, just add a vintage rock tee, cardi and a leather jacket and you're good to go.
i can never say no to a great guns n' roses tee and this find was no exception. it says appetite for destruction on the back too, awesome.

on top of ol'smoky

the last of the nashville posts, day 11 - finally getting past the tourist trap of pigeon forge and gatlinburg (there is literally a museum for everything, an outlet for everything and about 50 mini golf courses off one two lane road, traffic nightmare) we made it into the great smokey mountain national park. we did a couple of hikes, saw some amazing autumn colours and even straddled the tennessee/north carolina line. you could spend a month explore the huge park, but we just had one perfect day, i'll never forget those hazy blue rolling hills.

good ol' rocky top! whoooo! rocky top tennessee.

nashville day 10 - the first full day in the smokies involved lots of rocking on the back porch and relaxing in the hot tub before heading to knoxville for a university of tennessee football game. what an experience! 100,000 people all in volunteer orange, singing along with the marching band playing rocky top and supporting their boys. that night was so cold and the vols weren't exactly doing that great so we decided to leave after the half time show, but what a show it was, flaming batons, marching band reels and a back flipping davy crocket. crazy.

loveless cafe - praise the lard, pass the biscuts

so behind on posting, so this week i'm putting it all up. posts everyday.
nashville day 9 - the last weekend in tennessee kicked off with brunch at loveless cafe, a nashville institution. loveless cafe is a former roadside motel that turned into the place to get the best biscuits in town, amazing. after carbo loading the boy and i headed east to pigeon forge to spend the weekend in the smokey mountains. little did we know we drove the 4+ hours in the pouring rain with a flat tire, ooops! good thing we didn't crash/destroy our rental car because we didn't get insurance. when we finally arrived at our cabin i had to climb through the window b/c we had the wrong entry code for the door, jokes. at least it was worth it all for a toasty cabin in the woods with the world series on the telly.
