Oh, Deer.

Back to back days of deer-themed clothing? I can't apologize for it, because I love it! My amazing sister got me this adorable shirt and I'm pretty darn head-over-duckboots for it. I mean, who doesn't love a shirt with cute little deer wandering all over? It's pretty lightweight so I'm excited to get plenty of wear out of it come warmer weather.

I've been kind of going crazy reading lately, both books and blogs, and have been feeling really inspired. I have probably five projects I'm currently working on and ten more I'm planning for. I love it, and am loving thinking about what I want out of the next year especially. I came across this blog post over on The Reverie Blog (it's a guest post by Julie of Cinnamon Girl) and felt like I had to share it. She writes beautifully and I especially love that second-to-last paragraph about not letting what other people do distract you or give way to your fear of failure. Definitely check it out if you have a few minutes - and both ladies blogs are lovely as well.

 PS. Thanks so much to those of you who gave me your opinons the other day about my Etsy shop - they were all so sweet and I have been thinking a lot about each of them. Hopefully soon I'll have more of a "vision" of my direction to share with you:)

Real Casual

Sometimes it seems big bloggers live in this fantasy world where they always dress perfect, have the perfect ideas, and they don't have anything to do besides stand around looking pretty. Even when they just have babies they still seem to always be wearing heels and dressed to the nines like it's a 1950s advertisement. Not that I'm trying to bash these ladies. Part of the reason I love blogging is that it pushes me out of my comfort zone and to try to be my best with a lot of things, but I just wonder how realistic it is sometimes, and if they ever have days when they just 'bum around', ya know?

These are from yesterday. I had a bunch of errands to run, it was cold, and I had to wear a heart monitor all day (just for testing) so I decided it was a nice day to just be casual and comfy and let my hair be it's crazy, messy self. I thrifted this jacket years ago, back when I was a teenager and spent all my time in between college classes at thrift stores. It's Ralph Lauren but I just loved how Boy Scout-y it is, and I couldn't help but add a few patches I thrifted too. I think it's become one of those goofy teenager buys that I don't know if I'll ever be able to part with.

Shades of Grey

Meet my normal autumn/winter get-up. Any and all things grey.

I have some sort of weird mental block when dressing as soon as the temperature drops below 70degrees. I think "hey, what am I gunna wear today" and my hands respond by pulling out black tights or jeans and grey sweaters.

boooo-ring. I know.

Even though I wore this for some errand running (and park-walking with husband) the other day, I am promising myself not to let me wear too many of these various-shades-of-grey outfits.

PS. thanks to husband for snapping this photo:)
