For the Love of: Shades of Monet Chronicles

Well, hello! This week has been nuts. We had a local paper do a small write-up about the sale, and it definitely made it real - it's happening this weekend ya'll!

So, for now, I am up to my ears with tagging for the sale, but wanted to pop in to say HELLO! I miss you!

Now I know I was going to feature a bunch of blogs that I love in February, but it just didn't happen. However, I did want to feature this gal on here, because she is definitely in my top five blogs.

I love her quirky and colorful fashion sense and her happy-go-lucky, joyful spirit.

This gal may actually be a ray of sunshine, wrapped in rainbows, with diamonds on the soles of her shoes.

I have never met her in person, but I am guessing that she actually frolics. She is so sweet and kind - I honestly feel lucky to know her and be able to partner with her for our Thread Share collaboration.

These are words and phrases commonly used on her blog: ♥ nifty pretties ♥  darling ♥  loverlies if you do so fancysplendiferous ... I mean, I can't even handle it.

She had me at strawberry sweater.
Please allow me to introduce you to Marissa of the Shades of Monet Chronicles blog.

Now, this lady has the most amazing way of putting together an outfit.

I do love a good polka dot print, too

She is the queen of layers - dresses under sweaters, sweaters under dresses, shirts under rompers, rompers over dresses - she always has a way of looking amazing and unique and style forward and cute. Many time I look at the pieces, colors, prints she puts together in amazement - I really have no idea how she does it. She honestly inspires me to get more creative with my closet.

I really wish she could style me every day before work.

If you are looking for a new read, she is your gal: she's funny and musical and whimsical and, well, one of the niftiest pretties you'll ever meet. Do check out her vintage shop, too. It's just loverly.
