I Believe in Pink

*Whether in my closet, on my wrist, or on my walls, Miss Audrey Hepburn said it best, "I believe in pink." Pink is the epitome of femininity, playfulness, and love, but the greatest of those is love.
"Love hard or not at all."

"There should be a course in first grade on love."

Power Couples: Madewell and Starbucks

[images by madewell.com and me via polyvore.com]

*Madewell jeans and sweaters are the perfect combination alone, but pair those with Starbucks on a chilly fall day, and you have the ultimate power couple. Not to mention the badass ring (also on my Madewell wishlist) and the retro eyeliner. This look is awesome.

"Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together again."

"Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you'll be criticized anyway."

Eleanor Roosevelt

"It's too late. It's all gone. You had your chance. You took to long, like you always do. I won't wait for you. It's not a game. It's not your choice. It must be strange to hear my voice, saying don't come back this time. It's too late for goodbye."

Randy Rogers Band, Too Late For Goodbye

"Let go of my hand so I can feel again."

Lady Antebellum, As You Turn Away
“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love...

On that last analysis, then, love is life. Love never faileth and life never faileth so long as there is love.”

Henry Drummond, The Greatest Thing in the World and Other Addresses

*It's amazing the people who come into your life and say some of the most beautiful things. It reminds me of a Grey's quote I think I've posted before: "At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it... once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away."

*I have become a lot more adventurous with different cheeses lately... Maybe I need to venture out with wines, too. After all, they are the original power couple, right? Dinner party with this soon.
"Yeah, I'm ready to feel now, no longer am I afraid of the fall down. It must be time to move on now, without the fear of how it might end; I guess I'm ready to love again."

Lady Antebellum, Ready to Love Again
"So baby drive slow, till we run out of road in this one horse town. I wanna stay right here, in this passenger's seat. You put your eyes on me, in this moment now capture it,
remember it."

Taylor Swift, Fearless

*25 DAYSSSS. Beyond excited.

"Only rainbows after rain, the sun will always come again."

Andy Grammer, Keep Your Head Up

Smells Like Teen Spirit

*Is it sad that I'm getting excited about back-to-school outfits already? I know I've technically been in school all summer, but something about fall classes brings me right back to high school and the night before the first day of school. I was always so excited to show my new-and-improved style and I spent days putting the first week's outfits together. Now that I'm a senior in college, I've realized one thing... Some things never change.

Albert Einstein

"When I was a little girl, I used to read fairytales. In those fairytales, you meet Prince Charming and he's everything you ever wanted. In fairytales, the bad guy is easy to spot... he is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought, and you realize that the bad guy is not wearing a black cape, nor is he easy to spot. He's really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair."

*I am probably going to be quoting Taylor a lot in the near future... I'm getting excited about her concert in October, so I'm listening to her on repeat. My goal is to feature each one of her songs on my blog... just kidding... but really, they are about my life. I actually may dedicate an entire tag to her lyrics...
“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,

revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

"Dim the lights, lock the door, spread your pictures on the floor. Blow the dust off of our past, let it all come flooding back. It ain't easy being strong, and when I can't forget you're gone, I just surrender and have myself a night to remember."
