It’s been a busy week and my little worry-filled head needed a break today. It was a day full of coincidences..
first we went to brunch at Smoke and Cedar , which is on a golf course and right in front of me on the putty green was my old communications class teacher practicing his “swings”. I didn’t say hi if you’re wondering, because I would’ve had to duck flying golf balls to get to him and I figure teachers go through so many students to remember each one and he would be forced to pretend he remembered me.
Later on, we went to see the movie ex-machina (pretty good), then we came across this car parked right in front of this historic barn at the park, what a great coincidence!, I initially thought it was a prop for some photographer of sorts, but nobody was there and of course I had to pull out my camera haha.. I think the owner just wanted to show off this coolness and I responded very well to this.
Ian decided to let me know that I wasn’t allowed to jump in or lean on the car….duh.. haha
Nevertheless, it was fun taking outfit pics today

Self potrait

“My thoughts are stars I could not fathom into constellations” – John Green

“I write because I do not know what I think until I read what I say” – Flannery O’Connor

“To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to  make  you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.” – e.e cummins

“First, I am very fascinated by how everyone  loves each other, but nobody really likes each other ” – John green

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)..” – e.e cummings

DSC_0454_FotorHopefully it will stop raining so I can do get out of the house. Today I really wanted to blog but had nothing to say ha!, so I decided to try do a self-potrait.. you like?

I also binge read other blogs I like, and hadn’t had a chance to read recently. It’s so  refreshing for me to read other people’s perspective on things related to daily boring everyday life, and I also like getting inspired in terms of food, style, working out etc, some of my faves are delightfully tacky by Elizabeth, twenty seven by Michelle and Curious Natalia. I find this ladies blogs “from the heart”  and very unique and personal. It’s obviously very brave for people to share their lives with the wide world web (the good and bad) and I respect such content, despite my disagree-ability  or agree-ability. I honestly hope my blog will go into a similar direction, something someone can relate to, not just nice photos/clothes.

This is definitely my favorite winter dress from F21. It was love at first sight when I saw it one lovely evening after binge-watching madmen and feeling very “1960s”.   I adore 1960s fashion like no-one does!!!, so cute and perfect.

Lately I have been finding a lot of inspirational personal blogs that have sparked something inside in terms of fashion. I hate dressing like a slob, especially because my work involves wearing scrubs that are not flattering at all, and I wear them almost every single day of the week. Therefore putting an outfit together is rather important. I am the kind of person who gets dressed up to a coffee shop to people-watch (especially tacoma or Seattle coffee shops where i get to see eccentric fashion styles that just make me happy)

Street style is definitely my thing, i love seeing people in the streets with all their different personal tastes. That’s why I fall hard in love with independent fashion bloggers that are raw and realistic, style comes in all shapes and sizes and it is important for girls of all sizes to feel beautiful through whatever it is they decide to express themselves through.

I had the epiphany that light was laughter and laughter was light, and that this was the secret of the universe 🙂
