les rues de paris

I finally caught it! i was gone the week the flu ripped through our unassuming little campus. unfortunately, the last of what has been going around gripped on tightly to my unprepared immune system the moment i returned. causing me to feel blah all week, this horrid little bug finally upped its strength and utterly took me out today! due to my complete lack of energy, along with being confined to my snug bed, i decided to import a few photos from a great source of inspiration garance doré. she's an illustrator, turned blogger, turned sidewalk fashion photographer extraordinaire.

i hope these images from the streets of paris inspire your imagination. hope to see you all out on the boulevard tomorrow! now, for a warm bowl of chicken soup... sans the chicken, of course!

bonne journée!

in bloom

although most of the beautiful flowers on our campus have been replaced by shrubbery or the sad remains of what used to be, these leggings are a happy reminder of what's to come. unfortunately for me "what's to come" is a test at nine in the morning! wish i could say more but i have a text book that is calling my name...

something blue

so, it was my first day out. i'm so thankful the day proved to be less awkward than expected... thanks for that! there is such beautiful color on our campus. the green lawns flanking the miles of tree lined sidewalks. the crystal blue water bursting out of our many fountains. the deep rustic reds of our colonial style buildings. ahhh... and not to be forgotten are the many students donning bright yellow tops, slouchy blue overcoats, funky teal glasses, and highlight green shoes. it's winter, usually the time for deep toned navies, blacks, grays, and forest greens enveloping students in huge coats as we all bustle from class to class. however, only three days into february, our toasty sun is keeping dallas nice and warm allowing this menagerie of color to creep out of our closets and into our classrooms. maybe there is an upside to global warming?
