summer skin

Summer Skin by Death Cab for Cutie on Grooveshark

     Just greenery and humid air ♪

I usually dread dressing for summer..I feel exposed and miss the comfort of my layers. I've always thought people are best suited for the seasons in which they're born, I'm a winter baby through and through. Give me some warm socks and boots,cozy sweaters and coats. Oh how I love coats! Fall is my favorite, I'm not keen on extreme temps. Summer leaves me with few options I'm comfortable in, I miss tights and cardigans. It also has a way of sweating me out of my body hang ups, it's just too hot to care!  Most probably stem from my childhood angst and catholic school meanies-more on that later. Long story short..we lived on the outskirts of town, kind of in the country. The closest public school was pretty scary(run down and was about to be closed) so I was sent to the only other option at the time.

 Growing up I was pretty petite but I've always had curves. One little idiot in particular tormented me with "ghetto booty" and singing "ghetto superstar", you remember that Mya song.. can't believed he almost ruined it for me! haha Of course after going to public high school and growing up a little I realized he was sippin' straight haterade and I didn't have to be skinny to be pretty.

Don't ever apologize for being you.

It's ok to be an outsider..

Life is a bit more enjoyable when you're not obsessing about what you're wearing and how you look in it. I know I have some body parts that need extra accommodating haha..I swear this dress was made for me. It's one of my favorite pieces in my warm weather wardrobe. The perfect vintage shirtdress in a lightweight cotton, and longer sleeves! I just love those.

vintage dress,shoes,bag,bow clips-a few of my favorite things
necklace/pyrite poison ring/pins
-handmade by me

Learning new tricks on my camera..electronics hate me haha! Most of my "tech saviness" is guesswork..I'm happy if I can just manage to snap a picture.

loving lately..

reading the random old books I've collected from the thrift store, whatever looks interesting at the moment.
this one's from 67'..The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power

this made my heart sing-

Proceed courageously upon the principle that even just a glimpse of light leads to more light. For it always does. Just dare a lot, and you will get a lot.

"Make it your goal to become a normal functioning individual. Let these principles shape you according to your real nature of a simple,decent,honest, unafraid human being."

Well said.

It takes bravery to be yourself.

new handmade pieces for the dw shop!

 ♪ the seasons change was a conduit..♪

This fall-like weather around here..amazing. I don't know what it is but I feel like I'm much more productive when it's not 100 open, listening to my summer sounds and doin' work on the house. Here's to getting stuff done!

Happy Wednesday!

That is a beautiful dress. I think everybody cops it from somebody in high school - I got taunted for being six foot but all those spindly little boys were just jealous I say!
