Purple Waves of Grain


I'm kind of in a colorful state of dressing lately. I've never been one to wear bold/bright colors as they're normally just not my taste but this year has been full of color galore! I kind of like it! This bright turquoise cardi is from Target and this dress is one that I snagged at Ross a few weeks back. I love the print and while I normally steer as far away from halter tops as possible, this one is a really flattering 50's style halter with a (deep) sweetheart neckline. Don't be fooled by the frontal shot though! It's incredibly short in the back! Just right where it counts. I realized it after we made our rounds at some antique malls and I shrieked in horror and quickly tossed on my H&M bike shorts underneath before we headed to the puppy park. Also, I need to start reminding myself to not take pictures after the puppy park! I'm covered in mud and slobber, though I tried to conceal it here! (But those daily puppy park trips really do make it worth it!)

These photos were shot on the side porch of our building. I swear, I'm constantly amazed at how beautiful and industrious this building is. It's not fancy, so if you're waiting for fancy loft photos then I think you'll be a bit disappointed! But it's absolutely perfect for us! Both of our families, and all of our friends, can agree on that one! And for everyone who keeps asking when those are coming: Soon... well, soon-ish! We get absolutely no natural light so it's hard to photograph. We just bought the last bit of furniture for the bathroom (sounds like it's huge... it's not.) so it'll be ready in due time!

A huge huge huge THANK YOU to everyone who has bought something from the Hive+Honey shoppe so far! I'm overwhelmed at all the love you've shown me so far! I can't wait to show the other things up my sleeve!

Do you take your pups to the dog park? How about you Nashvillians? Ever go to Centennial? We should have a puppy play date!

  1. This dress is stunning as are you. I would have never guessed that it was a halter neck. I wish we had a puppy park. I'm not even sure that there are any in the UK but they seem so fun. Most here if you see another dog the owners instantly put them on a lead and drag them the other way. So unsociable. haha.

  6. Hey HoneyBee,
    First, this comment has nothing to do with post.
    Second, I have been inspired by you and other crafty bloggers to make my own wedding bouquet.
    I'm planning on experimenting with a variety of fabrics before I make my final decision, but this is my first prototype. http://missyellowshoes.blogspot.com/2011/06/wedding-diy-bouquets.html
    Would you just let me know what you think? Any constructive criticism or advice would be awesome!
    Thanks for you time and happy Friday!

  10. These colors are perfect for summer. You look great as always, regardless of the puppy slobber. I couldn't even tell! I find the same issues with dresses, they all seem to be so short. I will have to invest in some spandex-y 80's shorts or something. Love the piercings as well, beautiful.

  11. I always stare longingly at dog parks, wanting desperately to enter, but alas! I don't have a dog in my life. Just catties. Someday...

    Your dogs are SO cute. Betcha already knew that though. ;)
