crush

i’m fan-girling hard on some j. tillman today. i’ve been listening to fleet foxes and father john misty all morning! here’s a flaming lips cover that is crushworthy!

summertime

summer is halfway over. i can’t believe it! I’ve had a beautiful summer so far, full of good times with good people!

patterns

do you ever mix patterns? sometimes I feel like all I ever wear is stripes. I am not ready to give that up, but I’ve been mixing things up by adding in some other patterns.

polka dots and stripes! this skirt is a kimchi blue skirt I grabbed at urban outfitters and the shirt is a favorite crew t from target. I apologize for not having a full outfit photo, but what’s a single gal to do?

I also have been wearing headbands nonstop. my hair is crazy long right now, and since my bangs are too long to do much with, headbands have been keeping my hair out of my eyes. to top off this crazy pattern outfit, I’ve got on a sweet floral j. crew headband.

what do you think? are you pro mixing patterns? are you even bolder than i am?
