So it only seems fitting that after I write a post about how I'm lacking inspiration, I would find it at every corner I turn to. Ironic, huh? Not that I'm complaining - the flood of inspiration is just a beautiful thing, and it's making me so happy right now as I post this. Maybe my inflated mood and overwhelming amount of inspiration has to do with the fact that there has been no rain for the past two days - the sun has been shining and it was in the 80's today! Or maybe all of your wonderful comments and assurances that everyone goes through inspiration dry spells helped me realize that I'm not alone. Whatever it is, I'm so grateful for it.
I stumbled across Teen Vogue the other day, and saw that Emma Watson is making an appearance in the magazine.
I love Harry Potter - the books are just amazing, and I enjoy the movies quite a bit too. Though honestly, watching the first film in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, I do not think I could have predicted that years later I would be calling Emma Watson a style icon.
Ms. Watson has grown up and evolved style wise in just an amazing way. She has gone from a childish style (which I know, she's young, and I do not blame her at all) to being friends with Karl Lagerfeld (jealousy on my end) and the new face of Burberry. The evolution from style challenged tween to classy and sophisticated woman just blows my mind.
Her recent Teen Vogue shoot is just beautiful. She looks every bit the stunning young woman she has become, and the clothes just fit her beautifully. I am so inspired by the beautiful, bold colors of both the clothes and the setting of the photos, and by Emma's ease in posing for the pictures.
The three main characters of Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Watson) seem to have gone through quitee the evolution over the years.
These are some of the gorgeous photos of Emma from the Teen Vogue shoot:
Why am I so in love with this skirt?! Actually, the whole outfit, thank you very much.

P.S. I have an idea of something additional I can do for J for the month + he'll be away, but I'm not sure if it's really ridiculous, or cute. He and I will probably only see each other once a week, if that, because he'll be over 3 hours away, which is a lottt of driving, and we both have kind of opposite schedules since I have nights free, and he is working nights = /
So I was thinking that I could buy a journal, and we could write each other letters while we're apart...like I would start it off and give it to him, and then he would write back to me and hand it to me when I came to visit....we could write about anything - how we feel about each other, what we did on a particular day, anything that is on our minds. It wouldn't have to be anything ridiculously time consuming, just something to kind of make us closer while we're away.
Honestly, is that really lame? If your boyfriend or girlfriend presented you with something like that would your thought be "Oh my gosh, this is so lame" or "Wow, how sweet!"
Currently listening to: Michael Jackson - Beat It. (RIP Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon. So much sadness in such a short time - my thoughts and prayers are with your families!).
