who wouldn't want that?

larissa hadijo bags are the things you wished you had come up with.  if it was even possible to top her 'deep sea' collection, she did it with 'diamond vision'.

a crab fanny pack, who wouldn't want that?

DIM (did it myself)

sadly, i missed out on the mara hoffman x soludos espadrilles.  so i improvised my jazzing up a pair of classic white vans slip ons.  easy and not a bad trade off, but those espadrilles really would have been the tops.

what you'll need:
-shoes with a 'blank canvas'
-fabric markers

summer camp

(all images found on pinterest)

something i'm working on.  given myself a july 1st deadline so we'll see what happens.

caught in the act

just the sweetest.

until he woke up
i'm pretty sure he's telling me to delete the photo before his friends see it.

there's a new sheriff in town

someone's taken over the girl bed.
(opie has conflicting feelings- separate post to follow.)

they're off to a pretty good start- sharing my lap.

we got this guy on sunday night and he's a pretty good fit.  we weren't in the market for a kitten, but he had nowhere else to go and i'm glad he ended up with us.  name tbd.

lately, my brain is all things swim.  i keep seeing tops, pants, dresses- all in swim fabric.  this might be the perfect time to start using all my leftover yards of swim material from senior collection.

#4 is underwear/swim bottoms all in one from Xirena- because you never know when a pool party might break out.  Of course, there are tops to match.  (thanks FOAM, for the heads up!)

and who wouldn't want a wolf onesie?

just sayin'

( maggie and me/ ryan roche blog / stone fox bride )

stumbled across this ryan roche for stone fox bride dress today on the internet.  uncanny resemblance to mine, no?  so on it- two years ahead of my time.

i've always wanted to be able to wear my dress again for something- just not sure what chance i'll get.  while i'm not ready to dip dye the bottom in neon pink, i do think it's a sweet idea.

i have to say, i'm tickled pink right now.

opal everyday

i'm back.  after a little hiatus, the blog could officially be named Opal Everyday- no more weekends for that little guy.

no big plans just yet.  just lots of quality opie time and dinners at home.  and hopefully, a lot more blog posts.

not LK saturday

this is BT (baby tortie).  she's opie's outside girlfriend- i'm not sure her love for him is reciprocated, but he tolerates her.  pretty sure his sister LK wouldn't approve.

this guy

after spending every minute of the last week with this guy, i really miss him today.
