This Blutsgeschwister dress is one of my absolute favorites. It's a dress that never fails to cheer me up if I'm feeling low. It's such a bright and fun piece, and I can't help but smile when I wear it. I've worn it on the blog before, but it's definitely better suited for the warmer months, I think. It's also a piece that I was especially thankful to find; I had spied it on the brand's website well before it was available anywhere in the USA, and because the Blutsheschwister site ships only to Germany and its surrounding countries, I thought all was lost. Luckily, it ended up being available at ModCloth, and I knew I had to make it mine. This plaid is so enchanting, and I love the sweet floral border. I felt it would be a perfect pairing with my watering can novelty purse!
I actually had a fairly relaxing weekend, and it's rare that I even have much of a weekend at all these days, since I normally work on Saturdays. My mom and I went to the Public Market on Saturday morning (it's a huge farmers' market here in Rochester), and we got a ton of yummy stuff, including more peaches and nectarines than I ever could have imagined! I've been eating one with every meal, and it's been delightful. I wish we could go every weekend. I also had a lot of time alone, which has been kind of nice, and I was able to take photos and work a lot on my personal acting website. I'm slowing checking things off my to-do list, which is a nice feeling.

On a serious note, I was so saddened to hear of Robin Williams' passing last night. He was one of my favorite actors of all time, and he always astounded me not only with his comedic abilities, but with his incredible dramatic talent. He was my first actor crush. He made me believe in magic. The world seems a little less magical without him in it. Too many brilliant artists gone far too soon. Be kind to each other. <3
Have a great Tuesday.
