Nothing But Blue Skies Always On My Mind

(Lyrics from"Blue Skies" by Jaymay)
What?! Two posts in one week... it's a miracle! ;) Ok, so that might not be very impressive, but I have been quite productive today, so feel free to applaud anyways haha! I took my dogs for a mini hike on what was once a really cool trail, but is now sadly being developed, which led to us being asked to leave :(. I also finally went to the post office to pick up my giveaway prize that I won from Cristie over at The City Birds Nest! I was super stoked to win, especially since her blog is amazing, and also since she painted it herself! If you haven't visited her blog, head over there when you're done here!
Seriously, how cute is that?! :)
On the not so productive but oh so fun side, I broke my month long streak of not buying clothes and got a new dress, a cardigan, an awesome wallet, earrings, and a winter coat. Whoops! ;) As for this outfit, it is something that is pretty much my exact style. I have always loved peasant-y, hippyish styles (my grandma raised my mom as a flower child, who in turn raised me as a flower child), and there is nothing as comfortable as a flowy skirt, especially one with big pockets that can hold all of your stuff! I prefer to wear this one higher, as a pseudo dress over tanktops, because otherwise it makes me look shorter and more squat than I already am... no bueno! I also am a fan of wearing scarves and bandanas in my hair; I feel less preppy than I do with headbands, but they still serve the same purpose. These gladiator sandals are falling apart, and I'm so sad because I haven't found a pair that I like as much! I am going to have to retire them soon though, as there is a giant hole in the bottom through which rocks poke my poor little footsie! ;) Anybody know of a place to get cute, semi cheap sandals?
Excuse my highly visible bra straps... oops! :o
Tank top: ($5?) Skirt: American Rag ($10 from Macy's) Belt (worn backwards): ($8 secondhand from CrossRoads) Sandals: Roxy ($15 from Macys) Scarf (worn as headband): from my grandma
Me contemplating whether to do homework or go shopping... guess which one won!
Also, I have a giveaway planned for the near future, so stay tuned!!!


  1. Cute! I like the bandana/scarf look. I wish I could do it. They slip and slide and just don't stay tied.

    I got a few cheap but lovely pairs of sandals at Urban Outfitters a while back. They might just be a seasonal thing, though, so I don't know if they'd be carrying sandals right now.

    And: I am kind of freaking out about graduating, yes! It'll be good to be done with actual school, and I'm down with working, but I feel like, okay, I FINALLY have to grow up a bit and be a big girl. I still live at home, and I really don't want to be a college grad living in my momma's basement...although secretly I'd enjoy the hell out of it.

  2. Congrats again on the giveaway, that painting is really fun! Hah, I went on an accidental shopping spree a few weeks ago too, it happens to us all! I love the shots of your doggies! And that outfit is super cute! What an awesome skirt! :)
