Colorless love

It's yet another dreary rainy day here in Winnipeg and I'd by lying if I said I wasn't feeling a little down in the dumps today. It started when I dropped my phone on my face while laying in bed (I should have known then just to stay in bed) and hasn't really gotten any better since then. I'm trying to stay positive about my separation and the way things are unfolding, but when people talk about it like they have an idea of why/how things are the way they are, it's hard to ignore it and keep a smile on your face. I'm trying though.
These beautiful black and white photos cheered me up a little bit though!
Sometimes you just have to jump right in. (original source unknown, sorry!)

I love a good espadrille and these bows at the back are just divine!

Guess so!

I really like this simple black and white print. (Original source unknown.)

XO, Erin

  2. Hello, sorry to hear you are having such a crappy day. Rainy days make everything feel worse don't they? Have a cup of tea and go buy yourself some flowers or something equally as pretty to cheer yourself up! I love the first photo! x

  3. Sometimes black&white/vintage photos remind me how important simplicity is in life!


  4. Lovely inspiration. I like 1930's too!!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Glad these gorgeous pictures managed to cheer you up a little - they are really lovely.

  9. Long-time reader, very rare commenter. I am really sorry to hear about your separation. They're hard, no matter whose idea it was, no matter how amicable the situation. *hugs* to you.
