My parents surprised me one day when they went out and got this new painting. And I think it's absolutely fabulous.
I have such a great appreciation for the wonderful way the primary colors work together in our foyer rn. I also have such a great appreciation for the fact that i am no longer terrified of indoor lighting and that I can conveniently have a photoshoot right inside my own house.
Now I'm realizing that I kind of look like I'm dressed to match the owl. Hmmmmmm.... Interesting.... I wanted to use the white and silver combo as a somewhat neutral backdrop so that the vibrant red of the rug and vibrant yellow of the painting popped. But if i look like an owl too, then that's chill I guess.

Thank you to my patient Mom who always takes pictures of me. Here you go Mom. Thanks for not laughing at me when I wore this ridiculous lipstick for the first time in my entire life.
So my grandma redid her bedroom. And while it was 8:15 pm and the roast was still in the oven on Christmas, my cousin Allie and I decided to have a photoshoot. This wallpaper really inspired me. I am genuinely stoked to pick out the loudest orange wallpaper with tons of plants and birds all over it and put it in my kitchen. And spend the rest of my life forcing people to take trippy pictures of me in front of it. I don't have anything else to say here because the epic images you've just scrolled through completely communicate my vibe.

Well, here we have me wearing an entirely thrifted outfit, as usual. Retro pink flare cords, a flowy skirt (as a top, of course), and this random necklace I got for $2 at a garage sale. This necklace is a work of art, let me tell you. It's so cool that I'm afraid to wear it because I feel like the feathers will fall off and then I'll be sad. This is the kind of thing that I'm going to hang in my house. Actually, maybe I'll take it back to my room in college and put it on the wall since literally every single one of my magazine page fashion photos fell off. Yep. That was a good idea. One day, I'm going to open my own art museum filled with cool pieces like this necklace. Just you wait.
But for now, I'll just keep going for walks with my best friend Parker and forcing him to take pictures of me and to pose for my photoshoots. This is the life of the flowerchild, and it is great.
I encourage you to visit City Walk Thrift Store and ManRepeller.com to find all the clothing and inspiration you need to recreate this outfit.
Last week, I watched the 1980s classic, Pretty in Pink. Molly Ringwald's character is so obsessed with the color pink, and it made me think, why don't I wear more pink?! Pink is so girly and quintessentially feminine and glamorous. I love it. That's why I love this coat.
The soft, yet structured fabric, the ruffle detail on the sleeves, the large silver snaps......Just the shape of this coat alone is amazing. When wearing it, I feel so totally glamorous.
I've always loved how certain garments have the power to evoke certain feelings when you wear them. This is what makes fashion fun. The pink color and feminine structure of this coat will always make me think of Molly Ringwald's character in Pretty in Pink. And believe me, I'm happy with any garment that helps me mentally transport myself to the 1980s, and I'm especially happy with a garment that makes me feel so glamorous on my journey.

Today I visited the funky Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg, FL.
I've officially decided that the ~kimono~ is the perfect piece for traveling. Here's why.
1. It does not wrinkle in your suitcase.
2. It can be dressy or casual.
3. It is the quintessential layering device.
4. It works with almost every outfit, in every season.
5. It's fun to twirl in and makes for sweet pics.
My kimono and I had a great time exploring the Dali Museum. Together, we looked like the perfect art appreciator, the kind of person who totally knew what was going on in all of Dali's paintings.
I'll say that packing a suitcase efficiently and reasonably for a vacation is an art, and now that my kimono and I are a team here, I kind of feel like I've mastered the art of packing for travel. And I'm pretty proud of myself.
I found this awesome kimono in the sweeeeet vintage section of Gladiola Girls' Boutique, so I definitely encourage you to check out both the vintage section and the main shop floor where you can find yourself your own cool kimono friend to pack in your suitcase for your next adventure.
