Stripped Down

"I want to hold the hand inside you. I want to take a breath that's true. I look to you and I see nothing. I look to you to see the truth." - Mazzy Star

I'm so unmotivated today. I stayed in bed until noon, cleaned up a little bit, laid around some more, took a shower, and went out for a photo shoot. I still haven't folded up all the laundry. My husband filled out all the kids Valentine's for school tomorrow. If it was up to me, I would have just thrown the candy in their bookbags and told them to hand one out to everybody. I'm glad someone is responsible in this house. LOL!

We went out to one of my dad's packhouses today. This packhouse is in bad condition, so my dad is going to tear it down. Apparently, metal is a hot commodity right now, so my dad's been hauling it off by the trailer loads to sale. As a result, this packhouse has been completely stripped of it's tin. I've been wanting to take some indoor photos in a packhouse, but they are all so dark inside. Since the roof has been torn off this one, it was the perfect opportunity to get some inside pictures. We waited until really late in the day to take these, so we would have some pretty light.

Guess what I'm wearing today? The lace top I wanted from Fossil! When I saw it was selling out, I decided to order a small to see if it would work, and it did! It's a little short waisted, but I think it's suppose to be. It hit the model on the website in the same place it is hitting me. I love it just as much as I thought I would. I decided to keep the accessories and makeup to a minimum today and let the top speak for itself.

Today's song is "Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star. I loved this song back in my high school days. I haven't heard it in a really long time. I was listening to Pandora radio as I went to sleep last night and this song came on. Oh, I love it so much! The vocals, the guitar riff in the background, and, of course, the lyrics. I'm so glad this song is back in my life.

  5. Love your new shirt and the pics are amazing! I love old buildings, it's too bad your dad has to tear it down! I heard this Mazy Star song on the radio last weekend and fell in love with it again too. I had the CD in high school/college and would play this song over and over when I was in one of those dreary moods. I'm sure my roommates thought I was nuts!

  6. Cute! I have a similar lace top from Free People that I love. Looks great with the wide leg jeans.

    Also, a huge mazzy star fan :)
