A few pics from this last weekend. No one anticipated the cold, since it was 99 degrees in the city. I only had shorts (duh) so I had to run to a dollar store to pick up those black yoga leggings before my limbs fell off in the 50 degree foggy BS.

Travel is necessary, always. Even if it's just for a few days. Especially travel with no plan and an open road.

thrifted skirt, vest and boots, bootstraps from ebay, random jewelry

These photos really show off how short I am, eh? I am pretty sure the last time this skirt was worn was in high school. Why I still have it in my possession is beyond me. Oh well. I dig it again.

 I spent the last week outdoors and I am going to do just that right now. I can't ever get enough of nature. I should probably just quit renting and buy an RV to live and travel in, already. I don't require much space and if I could pick up and leave every weekend, I'd be one happy camper. Road tripping is the way to my soul. I just drove for 12 hours straight, and am ready to do it again. Outside > inside.

leggings c/o babooshka, thrifted denim vest, american apparel cropped top, boots from uo, bag from euphoria, triangle necklace c/o under the pyramids, random jewelry

The only thing not perfect about today is that Sticky is at the vet getting spayed. All I can picture is my little bearlamb in a crate, scared and wondering where I am. I wish I could know her thoughts. I wish she had a voice. A lot of people were against having her spayed because (obviously) her babies would be adorable and well behaved. My initial thinking was "OMGYES. Her puppies would be FREAKING PERFECT." Approximately 3 seconds after this reoccurring daydream, my logic kicks in and reminds me that there are millions of dogs in shelters and I certainly don't need to contribute to the rapidly growing overpopulation because of something so shallow as cuteness. Every year some insane number in the millions of animals are put in shelters or are roaming around with no home. Of these millions, about half get adopted while the other half are euthanized. A lot of these animals were once litters of cats or pups that were purposely bred and sold to families, while some of them are just a result of careless owners not spaying or neutering their pets. Animals aren't choosy, people. Their intense hormonal drive to procreate is instinctual and they WILL have babies. Lots of babies. And the majority of those babies will end up needing to be adopted at shelters. These are the animals you should be adopting. Quit going to breeders. Quit going to pet stores. It only perpetuates more breeding and less adoption of pets in need. Go to your local humane society or shelter, unless you're lucky enough to find a Stick wondering around your neighborhood, homeless and needing a friend.

What did that have to do with fashion? Nothing. Well, Sticky wears clothes sometimes. So there's my pathetic attempt at a relevant connection.

On a side note - these leggings are the shizzzzz - bright and shiny gunmetal space cadet, and hyped to be worn, especially after finally watching Thor. Thank you, Babooshka, these leggings rule. Check them out here. They've got a ton of rad items on major sale at the moment. And seriously, I say the word 'babooshka' probably upwards of 6 times a week, making me love this store even more. Babooshka babooshka babooshka!

Talk about a lookbook straight out of my dreams. I don't care how many bloggers have posted this.

crochet top c/o horizon's ed3e, thrifted shorts and top, my salvation red horn hair pipe necklace, jeffrey campbell boots, belt from bodhi imports

Can we please take a moment of silence for this outstanding crochet gem? ______. Yesterday was the perfect weather of all the perfect weather, so naturally I wore the perfect crochet top of all the perfect crochet tops. I've been seeing sparks fly in my rapidly-growing relationship with halter tops, namely cropped halter tops. I don't know, I just love 'em. Horizon's Edge was awesome enough to send this one over awhile back and I couldn't help but wear it immediately, even in the freezing weather. I FROZE FOR THIS. If you're into the same crochet-free spirited-colorful shiz that I'm into, you should check out Georgia's store here. She's got some awesome goodies.

I don't know about you, but I am itching to be in the desert right now. This top wants to be in the desert too, on my body. I need a road trip. Soon. Reeeeeeeal soon.

Relevant song.
