Forever Amber

Fashion Blogger Clichés, Part 2

(Dress, River Island last year; Shoes, TK Maxx, about 6 years ago.) For some reason, sunny weather (Oh, hey, did I mention we’ve been having sunny weather recently? Did I? Because I feel like I haven’t gushed about it quite enough…

Saturday Morning Shopping

(I took this photo by mistake while scrabbling around on the floor, trying to find a sock I thought I’d lost while trying on shoes. I thought it summed up my morning pretty well, though.) I wear earplugs every night…
