Cool Vintage

The weather is fluctuating from mad hot days to cool ones like today. I've taken this chance to wear my vintage skirt, which is just too long and thick for really hot days. Finally having access to all my clothes after two and a half months feels almost like having a whole new wardrobe.

I seem to be embracing a lot of looser, baggier looks lately. I am pretty stressed of late though, and maybe it's just the psychological effect of feeling like I'm wearing a clothes-security-blanket that is causing this. Either way, I'm glad I didn't belt this top today. Cheers!

Make It

It's another scorching hot day today and none of my tops felt like something appropriate for this weather. One of the things I purchased when last thrifting was a large floral shawl of sorts, so I folded it, wrapped it and knotted it and made my own little top.

The colours in the photos may seem a bit odd, but the sun was washing me out badly, so I changed my camera settings and managed to avoid looking like a glowing sheet. I know my confidence has skyrocketed when I'm comfortable going out in a homemade tube top, showing my belly to the world. Cheers!

Big Glasses

I don't wear these vintage sunglasses very often. Sometimes I love their obscenely huge lenses and other times I think they look silly. Today was a love day.

 I'm waiting for it to cool down a little and then I think I'll go for a walk. I've been too slothful these last two weeks and I need to get up and going again. I enjoy a nice summer night walk and if I could make that a habit I'd be happy. Cheers!

Floral Edge

This is a dress I thrifted last week. My bosom is slightly too large for it so the little waist bit rides up some but I honestly don't care. The dress is just so light and airy and feminine and I enjoy wearing it.

I've been waffling back and forth about how I feel about my new hair cut. Today is a love day. I won't be keeping the back of my head shaved down like this for long, but I am loving the new short length in the back. I hadn't realized how much of an irritation all that hair back there was for me.

The field behind my home is just gorgeous right now and it felt good to get out there with my camera. I've been pretty slothful lately since getting home and I've already put on weight, but at least this outfit makes me feel attractive. I hope the sun is shining where you are too. Cheers!

New Cut and Style

I shaved down the one side of my head back in March, but I've had an itch for even more of a hair change. Today I finally got it! I love it so much... On regular days it won't be so styled - I don't know how or even own most of the products and equipment required to pull this off - but I still feel so refreshed.

The shaved side is still there, but now also continues as an angled undercut across the back of my head. The hair up top was left longer and cut at an angle to lengthen to its longest point by my face. I love this cut!

That's fine with me though, I don't like having a head that reeks of products and I washed it all out just now. Now to enjoy how quickly this little hair dries after a shower! Cheers!

I'm Back B*tches

It's been a week since I'm back from the island it's nice to be home! My last weeks there were... something else. It's nothing I really feel like going into detail about, except that there's a certain man who's enchanted me and I have that island and the madness that ensued there to thank for it. That, and check out these guns!

I picked up this red mini skirt thrifting last week when I realized I am now too big (uuugh) for my other short skirts, and that some of my other clothes are literally falling apart and disintegrating from age and wear. I also hacked off the sleeves, neckline and part of the hem on this summer's staff t-shirt. That's all folks. Cheers!

Solo Camping

The caretaker here was more than wonderful enough to drop me off at a lakeside camp site with a canoe for two nights. I was able to spend two wonderful nights and days out alone in the North Ontario wilderness. It did my soul so much good.

I only wish I could have spent more time out there! Cheers!
