Welcome to my home! I like dinosaur bones, and alligator book-ends, and at Christmastime I like all the plaid. EVERYTHING PLAID! I also like a really comfortable pair of wedges. These are probably my favorite pair, and I wear them most often. The fringe adds a little something to a plain outfit, but I know fringe isn’t for everyone. Remember, if you have shorter legs wearing a wedge with skinny jeans will give the illusion of length. Also, this cable knit sweater is something I wear once a week. This time I tucked in the front for a different look and i really liked it. Felt like something new.
Personal story: this week Ryder decided he wants to be a playwright. He’s been writing plays, practicing plays, and in general tormenting us with plays. I have to say, this is the strangest phase he’s ever gone through. At night he’s actually been crying himself to sleep over some internal play drama. I’m all like “SHUT UP ABOUT YOUR ART, RYDER! You don’t see me crying do you?” (he does). Anyway, I always thought Scarlet would be the angsty artists, but…
I’m so draggy with these posts that they sold out of my duster before I could post. I found a similar one but it’s a bit more pricey. The good thing about this piece is that you can wear it as a dress, or open with tank under. So, find one somewhere and snatch it up. I’m all about the versatile pieces. Anyway, here it is.
Okay, the wedges are at least. They already were a great price and now they’re on sale too. So, go check them out. As for my lax blogging. It’s my camera’s fault…my friend’s fault…my…my…my…
I’ll do better.
I’ve had a hectic few weeks, and let me tell you, there’s this period of impossible fashion blogging in Washington state. Why? Because while the rest of the country is experiencing full fledged summer, here in the PNW we are still experiencing winterish spring? So, anything I post would be from last year’s winter wardrobe. So, excuse my slower posts, things will pick up when summer treats us all fairly. Also, I’m trying to just balance out right now. If that means less blogging and more writing-so be it. I’d like to share more blogging things with you too. Fashion and feelings are my forte, yes?
There have been some home projects we’ve had to work on like flooring, and deciding if we want to invest in the backyard, or if we are selling. I’ve had my eye on another house. We live in a development now. I have an amazing view of the Cascades, and I love my location since I am a few minutes away from the kid’s school, but I’ve been wanting something a little more private for a while now. Somewhere I can put dragons on my fence, and have a yard that neighbors can’t see into. I came to Washington for peace, and while I’ve mostly found it, I’ve discovered that in my line of work I need a certain sense of separation from people to maintain that peace. So, whilst I try to adjust to a new balance of work, and home, and decisions, I’ll be spreading out all of my extra curricular activities and depending on the week you may see more or less of them.
I remember bitching about Monday and now it’s Monday again. How does this keep happening? For most of you it’s a holiday. A depressing holiday. Is that why they give us all of these sales, to distract us from how sad today is? Today we remember people who died, here is fifty percent off… Also, enjoy your BBQ.
Anyway, my Docs are my new favorite thing. I have a ton of Doc Martens, but these are the most kick ass pair I’ve ever owned. Link below.
I’ve been looking for a green bag for a long time. People get really excited about this one when I wear it. The bad news is you can’t get it stateside. So, I found a kelly green hobo and linked that for you. Otherwise, my shoes are on sale! The really unique thing about these wedges are that they have a velcro strap at the ankle. They are comfortable and sturdy, and for someone like me who has wobbly ankles they’re a great thing.I’ve yet to fall down in them. Anyway, I know it’s Monday but I hope it’s a decent one. I’ve had to do some soul searching this weekend. Soul purging? Soul cleansing? It’s not purged, or cleansed, or found. My best friend did tell me I need to take up yoga, smoke lots of weed, or have a seance. Honestly, the last thing I’m willing to do is yoga. So…
