Last weekend while in attempts to walk off a veggie-burger and tatter tots meal, my boyfriend and I discovered the most darling of neighborhoods. It never fails to surprise me how after 6+ years of living in this city, we're still discovering places..! Humans by nature are creatures of habit, but I think that's something I need to work a little harder at changing. There are so many beautiful places out there waiting to be seen!

In the Historic McDonald District we came across some of the most darling (and huge) houses I have ever seen. Some looked as though they had been plucked right out of a French fairy tail - right down to the sloping rooftops. The gardens were filled to the brim with roses and impeccable landscaping, brick pathways that led to quiet benches, and beautiful water fountains. However the most intriguing discovery that was made that day was the Little Free Library. Placed outside someone's home and hand painted to match its decor, was a little library filled with books free for anyone to take from, or donate to! How cute is that?! I've seen something similar in coffee shops before, but I couldn't help but be tickled to find something like this in a neighborhood.
For my first styling of my Rocksbox jewelry, I paired my statement necklace with a bright yellow blazer - and then kept everything else pretty simple and basic. You can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans and a simple (but elegant) white top. The combinations of jeans, white top, and a blazer are endless it seems...I'm sure one could build an incredible wardrobe out of those three items alone!
