vintage blouse, vintage knit tunic, diy skirt, vintage necklace-axandapple.etsy.com, moms bracelet

made this skirt this week out of a HUGE thrifted muumuu... was gonna sell it, then i put it on. it was worn all weekend. i love things that can be worn out, in and in bed. took a needed drive up the coast... iced chai, wild flowers, sea air and an iridescent sunset. came back to reality today and realized that it's time to move on to better things.

a lot of people asked about the pictures below...
they were taken at the l.a. river and china town. the wings were already there. it was magical

oh my. you can't sell that skirt, unless it's to me. (=; it looks amazing on you. i love the feel of these photos. i have been needing a drive up the coast and a trip to the beach. the city is getting to me and i need some negative ions stat.

Amazing pictures and outfit. The beach ALWAYS leaves me feeling refreshed and renewed.

Whenever things seem like they are overwhelming...I go there. Sit & realize that no matter how bad things seem...they ALWAYS get better!!

Take care!

beautiful beautiful beautiful

love this. the photos are fantastic. the skirt is awesome. GREAT DIY! So inspiring. I love that last pic esp. And the description of your day. I so want to steal your day (if such a thing were possible)

Also, has anyone ever told you you have such a uniquely beautiful face? Or perhaps I should say a beautifully unique face. You sort of remind me of what I imagine a dryad (tree spirit) would look like. (I'm not crazy, I swear)
