This was my first day out since I got the first step of my half-sleeve tattoo done, and the heat combined with the healing process definitely required bare arms. Hopefully soon it'll be all peeled and clean and nice so I won't have to worry about my clothes getting all lotion-y anymore!

Just Keep Swimming

It is not nearly warm enough to think of swimming outside yet, but I've had my eyes out for a vintage-inspired bikini for ages; when I found this one at Forever 21 today I knew it had to be mine. I might have to wait for another month to wear it, but in the meantime I had fun picking out my best (totally practical) beachwear.

I've been feeling some pretty serious 50s casual summer inspiration lately. I'm still wishing these jeans went right up to my waist, 50s dungaree style, but they'll do.

I went to see Only Lovers Left Alive last night and felt like it deserved a bit of lushness in my wardrobe choices. Alas, I don't have any of the gorgeous embroidered garments like Tilda Swinton wears at moments in the film, but I went with some brocade and wool to ward off the not-quite-spring chill.


I have quite a long torso and that, combined with my generous bosom, can make wearing some sweaters difficult if I don't want to show my midriff any time I move. But I ordered this pair of high-waisted skinny jeans last week, and it's possible they are the answer to all my long-torsoed prayers! I'm loving the silhouette they give me. Plus dinosaur earrings!

Moto Plaid

The temp dropped a bit again the middle of the week, which let me pull out this plaid wool motorcycle jacket which really only seems to work in the in-between bits of the seasons. I bought it at the same time as this little zip-pocket shift dress, and I really adore the two pieces together!

Party in the Back

I apologize for that awful title. Nonetheless, this top is possibly the best interpretation of the 'mullet' trend I've ever seen, and I'm thrilled that it's finally warm enough to wear it without disguising the lovely back with a cardigan.

Perhaps because of my ranch upbringing, I've avoided anything too "country" for a while now; cowboy boots and the like just feel a bit false now that I'm a city girl! But today I couldn't resist playing it a little cowgirl, albeit with my newest minty-green boots and a floaty dress to celebrate the tentative beginnings of spring.
