The Journey Home

The last two days have been a little rough; just in terms of traveling. Spring semester started up today, so yesterday was flying from Point A to Point B to Point C, then driving to Point D. I think the total traveling time was only about 6 hours, but dang; with jetlag and layovers, it was draining.
We celebrated my 20th birthday on Saturday, even though it's not for two weeks; we saw True Grit, went to my favorite restaraunt, and I was uleashed upon my favorite boutiques and thrift stores (the result...a Betsey Johnson jacket and party dress, pics to come soon!). It was a fantastic day, but knowing I'd have to leave the day after was a bummer.



Here's a quick drawing I did of a tattoo idea I was toying around with. Someone once told me that my head was "A Rococo Mess"; I think he was trying to insult me, but it's kind of the coolest thing someone's told me in a while. Anyhow, I don't see it as a bad thing.


Aaaand here's what I wore today! Probably not the smartest idea, since it was a lot hotter here than I'm used to (and I know you can't see, but it's a short skirt with black leggings underneath), and the belt felt pretty heavy by the end of the day. D:
Whatever, I thought the flowers were pretty. :'D

Shirt: H&M
Skirt: Papaya
Belt: Forever 21 (AGAIN :P )

  13. Geez, your illustration style is GORGEOUS. You should get some etsy-ness going, if you haven't already. I also love how you took ownership of that "insult" - I would have taken it as a compliment as well.
