i love midi skirts! i’m so happy they’ve been so popular this season. this skirt is one of my very favorites, and it came from walmart! cheap!

i’m still trying to find a good place outside to take pictures. this one doesn’t quite center up right, and also the sun is in my eyes, so i make weird faces. hopefully i’ll get this figured out soon, the pictures do look much better outside.

and a close up of the skirt print!

fat aus: fat aus’ style is a great mix of rock and whimsy. she takes gorgeous, unexpected pictures.

nicolette mason: what first drew me to nicolette’s blog was her awesome galactic hair! i adore fun hair colors and miss my own green highlights (*tear). added bonus, she puts together some super cute outfits.

with love and swallow: brodie’s blog is full of adorable outfits, and i love her pictures taken in a mirror.

the red rosette: oh.my.god. adorable girl with great indoor pictures (much respect). she also had beautiful hair and is a great accessorizer.

{spring!}

beautiful day out! also the first day of april! which for me equals the first day of consistently springy weather :)

also notice the height of our grass, another sign of spring ha ha. it’s so crazy green in arkansas that the grass grows faster than you can cut it. adam will probably get to it tomorrow. i’m not allowed because as awesome as our hefty old lawnmower is, it also has no safety features, and i am a klutz who would hurt herself.

i also hope to take my pictures outside from now on.

{thrifted.thursday}

i bought this top at a catholic thrift store in oklahoma city. my shopping partner was not too impressed when i pulled it out, but i bought it anyway. i’m so happy i did! i wore it this way to show the whole top, but in reality i like it with a vest and a high waisted black skirt. it’s one of my favorite pieces!
