lucky flowers

good afternoon :)

i tried to take some quick outfit photos by myself this morning, but they came out hella blurry. i couldn't get it to work on auto focus OR manual focus. i think there's something wrong with the camera/ lens, and ordered a part recently to get fixed.

i'm bummed, because i was kinda pumped to show you guys this cool pattern mixing i did with the shirt and cardi!

oh wells. maybe these will just be my "artsy" photos... yeah...

shirt- vintage
brooch- gifted
scarf- thrifted

it's rainy and cold here today. i missed my yoga class earlier, and am debating if i want to go to another one, or go out and do some work. i watched my beloved game of thrones last night, and it mega freaked me out... i may need the yoga to calm myself. woke up this morning with the tickler still on my mind...

hope everyone had a great weekend :))


friends, be sure to listen to my new songs on bandcamp!! ♥♥


  1. Love your outfit and the pictures turned out super cute!


  2. Ummm....I cannot get enough of this outfit!!!! Love the pattern pairings and those shoes couldn't be any more perfect with the ensemble.

    I think I'm the only person in the world not watching Games of Thrones. Well and the fiance...I feel like I've missed too much to watch it now. Like Mad Men...I'm way to far behind to watch it now!

    Oh and your hair looks adorable! I like the way the photos turned out too...it looks like you used a soft focus purposely :)

  3. These photos are really cool! I love the pattern mixing and I am jealous of that cardi. I've never watched GofT but the hubby loves it. You look great, lady!!

  4. Awe, what an awesome outfit! I love colorful patterns so much! Just wish I could pull off the pairing like you, haha!

    The 3rd photo is amazing! Love the pose!

    And it's rainy and kind of cold here, too. On top of that, I had a funeral, so it's extra gloomy over here.

    Hope you have an awesome week! ;D

  5. Oh my I just love this to pieces. I struggle constantly with putting outfits together that involve jeans or pants. 6 out of 7 days a week I am in a dress...the other day...I am probably being a bum and staying my pjs..ha. Anyhow...pinning this one for certain. The patterns, the shoes, the scarf..have completely won my heart over:)

  6. I love your outfit!! Very pretty pictures.

  7. head scarfs are my favorite and I love the hair :)

  8. I love the pattern mixing!

    Have you read the GoT books? Even knowing what happens and having read about it, the scenes in the TV show had such an effect on me! I guess seeing it is different than reading it. It's such a great series, I'm so glad that it's becoming so popular so hopefully they will make one for all of the books!

  9. Fantastic outfit! I love that sweater...and those shoes...and the photo of you sitting on the bench :)

  10. jenna- there's not much to catch up on! each season is only 10 episodes long, although they are very dense (the books are even more so.)

    lisa- it's a great show... you should join in :)

    miki- sorry to hear about the funeral (and you could totally pull off that pairing.)

    marisa- i used to also wear dresses day in and day out, because they were so comfy! then i discovered... (jeggings.) honestly these days, i'm wearing the j-word the most.

    lyndall- i've read all the got/ asoiaf books, except dance with dragons. even though they're amazing, i think they kind of traumatized me a bit, which is why i haven't exactly been making haste to get to the next book. i can't say why, but the parts with the tickler (and the unsullied) were among the most disturbing for me. especially since i've felt so strongly connected with arya's journey.

    but yeah... anyway, that last episode felt brutal...

    thanks so much everyone for your love!!! <3

  11. Love your outfit! Great pics! xx

  12. i am horrible at taking outfit pics of myself! that's why i just don't do it!! you are soo cute!

  13. Your pics are good! lol. I just started doing outfit posts and I have noooo idea what I'm doing as far as self portraits - which is horrible b/c I used to do photography/photo shoots - just never learned the self portrait aspect of it! I'm trying to learn though ;) Your "blurry" photos are better than my good photos! lol

  14. i love your outfit!!! so cute! and the pictures look so dreamy.

  15. love the shirt! its awesome :)

    game of thrones freaked me out abit too. there arent words.

  16. I am LOVING these photos, blurriness and all! It creates a dreamy, soft feel and looks like the blurriness was intentional. Your outfit is gorgeous and I CANNOT get enough of your blog. It's adorable, YOU'RE adorable, and I am pretty much your new biggest fan. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog! So happy I found yours :)

  17. Oh this outfit is super cute! And the first photo is very arty--it looks like it's a film print, so well done.

    Umm yeah Game of Thrones was super creepy this week. And last week. Have you read the books? I'm the only one in my watching group of four who's read the books, and I didn't think it was possible, but I think the tv show is even more violent than the books. (Joffrey's horrific scene? Did not happen in the books.)

  18. it can be super hard to capture things IRL the way you see them in your head, but i think these pictures are wonderful anyway! also, i love your little vanity setup! i can't wait until i move somewhere and can have a little corner of my own. ps. i am FINALLY listening to your ep! i am only on the first song but i already love it! so glad you found my blog so i could find yours =]

  19. Love your Oxfords!!!

  20. I love these pictures!!!!
