Thats me fighting back the tears at the airport…or something like that. It was all farewells this weekend as mum’s (yup, I spell it mum not mom) visit came to an end. It hit me the morning of, just how much I will miss her laughter, her checking up on me to see if I had eaten. I kept reminding her that I’m an adult now (who also really loves food) and there’s no way I would walk around starving. But that’s mums for ya. It’s nice to know that we have so many amazing communication tools these days. Imagine pre-skype, pre-email, snail mail days…I couldn’t take it. 

Oh and I’ll quickly add that I love this blouse.  Sugarlips sent it my way…and I have to admit sometimes you really hope when people send you stuff that you like it. It fit perfectly and I got tons of compliments, so I’m definitely a happy camper. 

And a  day that ends with my favorite meal for dinner (cereal), well that’s not too much of a bad day after all.


Blouse: Sugarlips (gifted)
Pants: Uniqlo ($19)
Boots: Zara  
Bag: Vintage Coach from Etsy ($39)
Jewelry: H&M

    Aawww, I know how hard it can be when saying goodbye to mom (or mum) for long periods of time, but thank God for technology! I too am skeptical when brands want to send me something, because I am super picky, but that blouse is so cute and perfect for you Cyn!!
