I have to say that I much prefer the bleak and dreary dustscapes of Texas to the urban sprawl of Tokyo…I always have.
My mom and I shot each other in Roanoke, just a minute or two away from home. 
We loved these funky chairs lined up in front of this restaurant. 
Wearing a J. Crew pleated bib front shirt, J. Crew bracelets, shiny brocade pants from 'furfur', and Chanel bowtie heels

  9. Pants are rad as can be.
    I love Texas and it’s quirky culture. NYC, LA, Paris etc are fun to visit and delve into but I absolutely love living in Texas and find it peaceful, beautiful, inspiring and full of an almost lackadaisical energy.

And those Chanel heels… well there aren’t even words to express how much I envy you for owning those! And I agree… I currently live in the city, but there is nothing like it when I go out of state and head back home to Georgia. Nobody does the simple things in life quite like southerners!
