Made For

As I have previously mentioned, I am a sucker for Australian brands and One Teaspoon is no exception.  Imagine my excitement when I walked into my local Urban Outfitters and the whole front section of the store was One Teaspoon. I immediately tried on the whole collection and walked away with two very lovely pieces. This sweater dress has been one of the most worn items in wardrobe recently, it's ease and comfort is almost irresistible on chilly winter days.

Weather Inappropriate

Finally a more weather appropriate outfit. I've been getting a lot of comments lately along the lines of "I wish it was warm enough where I am to wear something like that!" and guys, it's not warm enough here either. Winter fashions just leave me feeling uninspired so when it comes to my blog I tend to gravitate toward more warm weather looks. This outfit still wasn't exactly warm enough but hey I'm wearing a coat so thats a step in the right direction. Richard and I spent this day antique shopping and this outfit actually ended up being a hit with the Sunday vintage shoppers. One even asked if she could take a picture.

On an unrelated note I have some sad news about this gorgeous purse. Maya (My anxious Siberian Husky) decided that she too liked this purse and chewed it to death while I was at work the other night. I tried to save it as much as but I think it's time to admit defeat. Well, at least I got a couple good photos in before her untimely death.

Wild One

Spell Wild Ones Knotted Dress, Spell Designs Ring, Vintage Shadowbox Necklace, Bella & Chloe Cuff

I couldn't think of a more appropriate backdrop for this gorgeous dress than the equally stunning Oregon coast. It's incredible that a place this beautiful is only a two hour drive from my apartment. I'm so lucky to be living in a place where you can find beauty in every single direction and I'm truly grateful to be in love with a man who wants to explore it all with me. It's really an incredible feeling to have someone you can be creative with and who inspires you every single day.

Life Lately via Instagram

(Photos from my Instagram @kaciecone)

I apologize for being gone all week but I promise I have a really good excuse. If you follow me on Instagram then you already know, but this past week I had the incredible opportunity to go to Philly and New York. Why? Well, I had the biggest interview of my life at the Free People home office. The home office was absolutely stunning (Photos: top left, bottom right) and I am so grateful that I was even gifted with an interview. Well, as of an hour ago I can officially tell you that I got the Internship and will be spending the summer in Philly as Free People's Engagement Marketing Intern. I'm so excited I can feel it in my pinky toes. It's always been my dream to work in the Free People home offices and it feels incredible to finally have a little part of that dream come true. 
Since I was already in Philly I was able to spend the weekend with my dad in New York City! I had never been to the city before so that was also a dream come. Although it was freezing cold, the energy in New York is unlike any place I've ever been before. It was an eye opening experience to all the amazing places in our world and how badly I want to see them all.

Thank you all for the continued supported, tomorrow I am back to my regular schedule and will have another outfit post up soon! Hope you are all having lovely weeks!

"Time spent on trying to be perfect is time wasted."

I remember when I was in high school I used to desperately long for perfection. I always dreamt that one day I would wake up and suddenly I'd be the smart one, the talented one, the brave one, the beautiful one... the list could go on and on. I'm glad I never became those things because the truth is, thats not me and it's never going to be. The key to happiness isn't finding the secret formula for perfection. It's accepting and loving yourself for exactly who you are. Apparently, according to these photos, I'm the girl that runs barefoot in a muddy field on the windiest day of the year. A carefree girl wearing a long dress in a beautiful place, that's me.
