A black turtleneck has been on my list for a while, and I finally found one. It's Merino wool, fits perfectly, and was only $5!

Even if you feel that turtlenecks are unflattering, you should still own one for practical purposes. Even if you live in Southern California! What if you decide to go skiing?? You will be so cold in shorts and a tank top! So buy some pants, too. Those are very practical.

On a side note, if you're ever in Seattle, make sure to get yourself a cupcake or two at Trophy Cupcakes. I think they are the best. Their chocolate frosting is the pinnacle of perfection.

And that is my fashion tip for the day: Buy cupcakes and pants.

Yes, Ashley, many people forget to buy pants! Il est tres tragique!

Thank you for following me :) I am following you as well!!

Collette, some days I look great in a turtleneck, others I am nothing but a big doughy face with no neck. Turtlenecks can be tricky!

Hey Catie: I was looking for your email address but couldn't find it.

I'd like to mention you in a post this week and link to your blog. Thanks to you, heart-shaped sunglasses are on my upcoming monthly wish list. =) Would that be ok with you?

If you'd like, you can email me at

Thanks! Ashley
