feet on the ground, head in the sky


dress: thrift -- shirt: thrift -- shoes: thrift -- cardigan: thrift

Today's one of those days when I just don't feel like writing much. I'm a little overwhelmed by the amount of work I put off this weekend that I need to do.



It was actually super rainy yesterday. You'd never guess it looking at these photos. I even had to take off the tights I had on earlier because it was too warm. Gosh, I love the collar on that shirt. It's wonderfully exaggerated.

Today's title comes from Talking Heads -- This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody). I keep waiting for Talking Heads to get old, but they never do. I wish I could have seen them live! I listen to their live albums more than their studio recordings. Oh well!

Did I tell you how much I love this haircut? Cuz I do love it!

Today I was telling someone how awesome the song "Heaven knows I'm Miserable Now" is because the line "I went looking for a job and then I found a job" is constantly resonant for me in life. They didn't get it, but I thought you would! Just sayin'!

You know I have a collar fetisj. Are you trying to seduce me?

Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my post: of course every blogger HOPES to make it big when they put in time and effort at their blog, but they shouldn't feel like they have the right to have people fawning over their every random move. People take themselves way too seriously.

And yeah, we would totes be friends irl!

Oh my oh my, your shirt is just too darling! I have such a thing for peter pan collars... they add the perfect amount of vintage whimsy to any outfit! You're awfully lucky to have thrifted such a beautiful shirt... I'm still on the look out for a petetr pan collar shirt (or dress) at my local thrift shops!

EEK Such a cute shirt! Also, I can't get over how good your new hair looks!

I recognized the Talking Heads lyrics right away- they're in my top 5 favorite bands. SO good.

Good luck w/your work load! xo

This is such a delightful outfit; I love the short hemline balanced out with the slouchy cardigan and your great haircut.

Glad I found your blog. : )
