The last two coherent words she spoke were..."I'm unstoppable." This from a group email her daughter sent out on Wednesday morning a few hours after Melinda left us. Never in my life have I met anyone quite like Melinda. Her energy and positive spirit kept stage IV ovarian cancer at bay for almost 6 years. She defied doctors, nurses and modern medicine. She was a living lesson on how to live fully present and in the now. I know she reached out to a few readers of this blog who had cancer or who had friends that did. That was her way, always caring, a friend to everyone and always with her big smile. I've never lost a close friend before and the feeling of emptiness is immense and unexplainable. I don't know how to act or what to say all I know is that I miss her so much. x

I fell in love with this pencil skirt because it has such a vintage feel to it. The blue, black, white and mustard colorway is gorgeous and goes with just about everything.
I love it with my chambray. If I decide to keep it, I'll have to have it hemmed because it's just too long to walk comfortably in.
This is what they call the Birdcage skirt. So cute and super comfy. Cute with boots and sweater in the winter and it will be perfect in the summer with a tank top, sandals and straw bag.
I love the linen tee shirts. I adore the neckline and the sleeve length is absolutely perfect. They also have a few scarves in the collection. Although this one is polyester it's still super soft - not stiff at all.
