i'm on another planet with you

First things first, thank you so much to all of my new followers! I hope that you find my blog interesting and entertaining :)


sweater: Gap clearance -- skirt: thrift -- tights: Urban Outfitters -- shoes: thrift -- headscarf: thrift


I actually wore this outfit a few days ago, but I had on the wrong bra and it was all bad. So, prisoner to my blog that I am, I put the whole thing on again and took photos tonight instead. It's been a really wet and cloudy week, and, to be honest, I've spent a lot of it sitting around the house in jeans and a sweater and have no better/other outfits to show you instead!




I figured since I had to take indoor outfit photos that I might as well show you all my closet! It's pretty organized right now, but you can't tell because it's so overstuffed. I took home all of my clothes that I had at college so that I could kind of take stock, regroup, and figure out what I actually own.


Face of defeat. I was looking forward to watching It's a Wonderful Life tonight, but then I realized that the actual DVD is in my DVD wallet at school. Nooooooooo :(


Since you can't actually see the shoes in any of the other photos...

And, randomly, I was scanning some negatives the other night. This was one of them. It's from a trip that I took in September. I just took it with my SLR on the self-timer.

Anyway, I like how it turned out a lot. I feel like it could potentially make a good banner image. What do you guys think? I've been playing around with my layout and header recently. I don't know what I want though! I like minimalism a lot, you see. What do you guys think?

Tomorrow, thrifting with Alex and dinner with his family friends! I'm so excited.

Today's title is from The Only Ones -- Another Girl, Another Planet, which is one of the greatest pop songs ever.

Lovely outfit in the top pictures - and I too am looking forward to watching It's a Wonderful Life so I feel for you having left it at school! Sally x

My family and I watch It's a Wonderful Life every Christmas! It's by far my favorie holiday movie...well Elf is pretty close up there too. ;)

I think that pic would make a great banner!

I'm a fan of those shoes!
I never have the problem of an overstuffed closet, because only about five percent of my clothes are actually in the closet and the rest are on the floor...haha. I need to work on that.
I like the self timer picture, and yeah, it would look good as a banner.

I really like your current banner I think it goes really great with your background design.. they balance each other out. Oh and thanks for your sweet comments!

I think I prefer the current banner, like TAPS said it goes with the vintagey, more busy background. The picture of your cowboy boots is pretty, but less "you" I guess? and you'll get creepy guys commenting on your legs and how they can almost see up your skirt if you put that one up :D

I LOVE that outfit btw, the grey sweatshirt is one of those perfect basics that every girl needs, but hardly ever finds in the right color and shape. It fits you perfectly and I love how you styled it!


thanks for your feedback too, btw, I always prefer blogs with more outfits than "other things" so I started just doing outfits, but then I thought that other people might find my blog too one note so I'm glad you agree with me!

Your closet looks like heaven!! I fantasize about going through other bloggers closets. How fun would that be?! XOXO

Michal said...

hehehe these photos are great (especially love your face in the 'it's a wonderful life' one :P)

I really like your skirt & shoes! Your whole closet looks awesome & I wanna dive into it.

Also, the last photo would definitely make a cool banner image. I really like minimalism too and have been wanting to simplify my blog a bit more...

I love your headband- you look soo cute in these pictures! Also, I agree with Annebeth- I think the current header balances out the pretty background you have on right now. :)

Amanda, The Upside of Wonder said...

You are so adorable! I love this outfit, especially the skirt and headband. That headband is just amazing.

That last photo is quite stunning! But I'm totally diggin' the feel of your background and header you have up right now. The background reminds me of some awesome 70s print, which I'm a sucker for!

i kind of love the phrase 'prisoner to my blog,' haha! i think we've all re-worn outfits just to take pictures in them :) i love your outfit, your headscarf is perfect. merry christmas! <3

by the way! you don't really have to pay to use shopping carts, you just put a piece of change in it and when you're done you get it back out. It is quite a weird system if you think about it, if someone really wants to steal a cart they won't be stopped by losing 1 euro over it :D
