For some reason I am loving these boxes as a back drop. I packed my tripod, stupidly, so I’m stuck stacking crates on top of each other and balancing my camera on top on a jacket to take these. That is the main reason why I am keeping my self indoors. That, and it has been oddly overcast through most of the day.

I woke up at 7 to take the kitties to the vet, and it looked like it was going to rain outside! Hint the cardigan and socks. By 3 it had cleared up and was a phenomenal 70 degrees out however.

I’m planning on overloading you with pictures today because, like always, I blew my load too early. And by load, I mean shopping finds. I hit a thrift store and Forever 21 store/outlet yesterday and picked up this whole outfit for under 40 bucks!



Like always though, I got too excited about my new additions and had to wear them all in one day and in one outfit. I realize and admit that the blue shorts and blue top would not be my first choices together, but they worked fine, so I went with it. I actually kind of like the monotone look of it. If I only had a blue cardigan of another shade to go with them, then it would have all come together. Maybe.

Expect to see a lot of these few items in the upcoming weeks. I have now packed most all of my clothes. Except for the necessities. So these items will be staples, along with a few others. This top is amazing! It is so light and breezy. And it’s a long tunic, so I will probably be wearing it with just some tights or shorts in the hot heat of Tennessee. I also plan on using it as a pattern for making more of these once I get my sewing machine unpacked at the new place. And it’s covered in stars! I just love it! And to think I almost talked my self into not buying it. Wow would I have been bummed!

I would like to thank my special guest, Mortimurr, for being such a lovely addition to my photos today. The cats love those boxes so much! They climb to the very top and lay so that they can barely even stand up without hitting the ceiling. They like to be the King and Queen of the house.



I’m not a huge fan of this last photo, but Mort’s face was just too good not to share. I cropped out the terrible parts of the photo (ie. the way I parted my legs in the absolute most un-feminine way possible). I looked like a cowboy standing on the porch after a long day on the ranch. Which I will admit, I usually am okay with, but this was not a flattering one of those poses.


I also want to thank all of you who are following and keeping up with this blog. I appreciate it more than you know. I also appreciate all of your wonderful comments! They really convince me that this is something worth keeping on with. I have fun with blogging. And it’s helping me expand my horizon on clothing and outfits. Two years ago I was almost strictly a t-shirt and jeans girl. Not that there is anything wrong with that (p.s. that saying always reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where they are talking about the man being gay, and how someone thinks that Jerry is gay, and they keep saying that he’s not, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that” okay, back to my point). All I’m trying to say is, that I have come a long way in the last two years, and even in the last few months, and I attribute a lot of that to this blog. So thank you for being a part of that!


Long days and pleasant nights. Bryce and Mort!!!

I love that top! I was eyeing one just like it at UO forever. Too expensive though...probably cost about as much as your whole outfit! $40 is quite a great deal!

great combo and outfit. I was tempted to use the boxes piling up in my apartment as a backdrop for my last photo's! But I couldn't help but turn to my usual corner of that chair and lamp shade since they'll probably be packed away tomorrow!

Thanks all you 'A's for commenting. I'm kinda amazed that there have been four of you!
