I’m back! Annnd I’m a little sick. What a surprise! While I was home, my grandma took me to get a flu shot. The pharmacist told me it would be about two weeks before it kicked in. Needless to say, I came down with a cold less than a week later. Really?! It’s like my body is giving the finger to vaccines everywhere. Every time I get a cold, I think of the little mouse I used to have: Mr. Sniffles. His name was originally Mousey, which is what we all called him anyway, but I named him Mr. Sniffles because he always seemed to be sneezing and cleaning his cute little nose. We inherited him from my Uncle Jeremy (who is more like a cousin since we’re close in age) when he and his family moved to Virginia. We also kept Birdy, whom I promptly renamed Feathers. Obviously, my family has a talent for naming animals. Hello, I have a cat named Puppy.
 Love love,Keiko Lynn
I’m taking it easy today and catching up on emails, editing, etc. Tomorrow, I’m back to work. I have two more updates coming today, so please check back. I’m trying to catch up!

    I absolutely love that skirt and almost bought it. Now I wish I had. Hopefully the next time I go to Target it's still there. So adorable.

    Aw, Keiko!! Feel better! You've been too busybusy. In any case, I adore your outfit. You look so comfy cozy, and just darling in that skirt! I really wanted to get one in cream, but alas, it was see though. Not a good look for me. I might have to check it out in pink now!

    It could be a reaction to te vaccine as well. It's quite common to get the sniffles a few days after at flu shot.

    My cat's name is Kitty, and when I was growing up the people across the street had a dog named D-O-G. When they called him it sounded like "Deeohgee", and I think I was around 14 before I finally figured it out.

  15. ziboo says: October 13, 20107:44 pm

  24. Vanessa says: October 13, 201010:33 pm

    This is exactly how i thought of styling this when I bought that skirt!

    I think it looks great for fall

  25. Makiko says: October 13, 201010:41 pm

    love your outfit as well as the vintage bureau behind it. the whole image really gets pulled together by the textured, worn-in look of the background.

  26. Dawn says: October 13, 201011:20 pm

    Only found your blog yesterday (c/o Kendi Everyday) and already I think I'm officially addicted.

    May I ask what lip color you're wearing in this pic? Whatever it is, I absolutely adore it!

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

    that background is great. what's the origin of the vintage furniture?

  28. Samantha says: October 13, 201011:29 pm

    I love your socks and shoes! :)
    I also love how you have a cat called puppy haha

  29. Polina says: October 14, 201012:49 am

    What a pretty skirt!

  30. Anonymous says: October 14, 20101:02 am

    I was in Target today and these skirts were actually $4.24! Needless to say, I bought two. :)

  31. Desiree says: October 14, 20101:48 am

    I got it for $4! I was so excited. I love how you styled the pink skirt. That color is so beautiful on you!

  32. Destined For Now says: October 14, 20103:33 am

    Target? Oh wow…lovely outfit.

  33. Natalie says: October 14, 20104:06 am

    I've also been eyeing that skirt but couldn't decide which color to get / how I'd style it. Seeing it not on a hangar helpful!

  34. northwest is best says: October 14, 201010:31 am

    What a great outfit! I've been looking out for some perfect OTK grey socks and yours look lovely. Hope you're feeling better soon!
