Sorry for the slow week. I flew to Florida the other day, and on the way to the airport I received some awful news. My grandfather (on my dad’s side) passed away; I’ve been in a kind of weird place since then. So it goes. I’ll be in Florida for awhile; the funeral isn’t for another couple of weeks. Rest in peace, Pop Pop.

I’ll still be updating – since I was sick, I have a few outfits that haven’t yet been posted. I’m also selling some clothing from my own closet, so look out for that post later today.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

p.s. Something that made me smile: Roxy told me that Pop Pop is on a cloud right now, on his way to heaven, because he has wings now. I just want to hug her every second I’m around her.

    first off my condolences.

    Second. I am obsessed with black and white plaid… and your button up is perfect

    Roxy's comment was so endearing, it made me smile despite your loss. I don't want to come off as insensitive, or too brusque, but it also makes me smile to know that you clearly cared for your grandfather. My grandmother recently passed away, but I never really knew her. So peace be with you and your family, Keiko. :)

    Toast with Charmalade

    I love the burnt sienna accents mixed with the black and white check and jeans :)

    Take care love.

    I hope your heart can find a safe place to grieve. I have recently gone through the same thing. My grandfather who was like my father passed away in August. I am hear if you would like a place to vent, share stories, someone to listen, etc. I know how awful that phone call is, esp when you are so far from your family.

    Cute outfit. Your fashion sense always makes me smile. :)

    I am sorry to hear that. I hope you have lots of good memories of him to remember.

    I like that outfit because it is cool and simple, it looks like one that even I could manage to pull off.

    so sorry about your pop pop- my grandpa died when i was a lot younger and we were super close, he was like a father to me. it's hard at first but you see the silver lining eventually. i'm sure he's looking down at you and this amazing empire you're creating and couldn't be prouder!
    love this outfit, it's cozy and the blazer gives it great structure.

    I'm so sorry to hear that :( The jacket and boots are a great color. I was going to buy some open-toed Miu Miu boots in a similar style from Net-a-Porter, but I decided on another pair instead.

    my condolences.. losing a loved one is always hard, but i love roxy's way of looking at it.

    on another note, the jeans made me do a double take, but heck you can rock anything.
