hallowe'en and progress

this weekend was pretty busy, as i wanted it to be! all week at work i think about all the things i want to get done on the weekend involved my etsy store, and i always let other things come up and distract me.  this weekend i buckled down and just DID IT. i started shooting for ladylikeness. i'm having a really good time with it -- i just needed to start and try my best. experiment with things. i found a good spot in my house with good lighting and some space to breathe.

on saturday we went to a hallowe'en wedding social. i went as a bouquet of flowers!  it was SO itchy, friends. to make my costume i gluegunned fake flowers all over a modified t-shirt and wore a f21 skirt.  i also put some flowers in my hair (and a little sock, to provide some volume in the front) 
 barcy went as a ghost.

    1. hey lexi--

      that was pretty much my favourite part because it reminds me of "flowers in your hair" by the lumineers. i wish i could be that girl everyday! but i work in an office...that would be weird. haha
