Sooo, when this blog was born it was equal parts music and style. And like a perfect mirror to my life, it's been style heavy/music-lacking lately. In an effort to correct the imbalance, I present to you a mix made with love, care, and yes, PLENTY of sighing.
It's the sequel to a mix I made last fall (on SWIILPT here) that is still my go-to, for all seasons and moods. To grab Sigh One, go to this link.
