Sandals: Urban Outfitters
Hat & Straw Clutch: Thrift
I feel like I've been issuing a fair amount of apologizes on the blog here lately, so just add this one to the pile: I'm sorry I didn't make it back with the winner of the Bruklyn Belle/Huckleberry Vintage giveaway yesterday like I had promised. I got the call that my granny passed away unexpectedly yesterday morning, and instead of working on school projects and fashion articles like I had planned, I spent the morning with my family.
I'm really quite strong when it comes to the issue of death (at least in this instance). I'll miss her to pieces, but I know that she was old and had a good life. What's really tearing my heart into shambles is watching other family members struggle to accept it. When I walked up the ramp to her porch, my grandpa said "I lost my love," and started to cry. That crushed me. And watching my seven-year-old brother deal with his first death and my mom dealing with the lost of her mother crushed me, too.
Oddly enough, I didn't post these photos from the cemetery when I took them last month, but I've been working on editing them for the past couple of days. I'm still not sure that the editing is perfect (my hair is far redder than it naturally should be), but the time and occasion seem perfectly fitting for what my family and I are dealing with. Now I've gotta figure out how to adjust my already chaotic schedule so I can attend the funeral in Alabama on Thursday.

♥ 1st place and winner of a $50 giftcard is Anash from Mom Military.
♥ 2nd place and winner of a beautiful clutch from Bruklyn Belle Vintage is Michal from North Country Girl
