I WANT TO LIVE HERE.















boots c/o emily's one man band, bag c/o omniawears, f21 skirt, aa crossback bra, skull necklaces c/o my salvation, prism necklace c/o baltica, triangle necklace c/o under the pyramids, belt from random arizona trading post, geode cuff from my friend madelyn

This week has been hectic and gorgeous and cooler than usual and sleepless and inspiring. My little sister got married. Recall the dress I wore as her as her bridesmaid here. The wedding was as close to perfect as you would imagine a beautiful outdoor forest wedding with trees and butterflies would be. She looked stunning and the reception was a blast. Now I find myself still getting no sleep and busy with who knows what. Hung out in this cute neighborhood today. "Sky View", they call the area. Sarcastically fitting. (Ignore the crossback bra that I wear in EVERY post. I only have one of these, and it happens to be an obvious pattern that cannot be ignored wearing all the time. I just hate padding. No need to make those unfortunate lumps on my chest bigger.) Back to the neighborhood. Everyone was extremely nice, met some cool people, and a guy with tattoos from his feet up to his forehead owns that car in the last photo. Used to be a cab, I guess? He didn't want to be photographed - bummer. But he did say we could ride in that car sometime, which would be a blast. I felt like I was at a national park, where people park their RVs and camp out, grilling and playing outside. Seemed like a mini vacation just being on the streets there after talking and seeing everyone. A whole different world than what I am used to. I wonder how much a trailer costs? It would be so fun to live in a little community of people who I am sure grill out and party together most nights, living in a tiny place all by myself. Not good when tornado season comes, though. Yikes. Anyway, I think mobile home parks are completely underrated. Loved it here. Craigslisting mobile home parks right now...I think it would be a BLAST to not have an apartment, buy an RV, and just travel and park places to live for a short time like some of the people were doing here. SO AWESOME. 

Oh! Can't get enough of Ancient Aliens. Do any of you watch that show? Right up my alley. No cable so I am forced to watch hulu and netflix. Conspiracy shows make me giddy. Any other suggestions? Also if you like nerd shows you should check out How The States Got Their Shapes. Swamp People has been one of my latest shows, too. And anime...do you guys watch anime? Death Note? Eureka Seven? Samurai Champloo? Chobits? Elfen Lied? Eh, eh? No? Not a nerd, then.

OmniaWears, who gifted me this glorious backpack is giving my readers 10% off any purchases made in their store with the discount code STRAWBERRY10. Take advantage of that, people! Great store. Love this and this and this. Also, these boots...they have not left my feet in days. Showering is painful because I don't want to take them off. The wonderful Emily's One Man Band sent them over. She collects vintage pieces on top of making her own recycled jewelry, another great Etsy store you should check out if you like these boots. This purse is yummy, and if you like shredding check out this top.

The Once Youth tank giveaway is still going on HERE. They will announce the winner on their facebook.

  1. Great pictures. Sounds like a fun little community. Wish more neighborhoods would get together like that. I rarely see kiddies playing in the streets anymore. They're all glued to their TVs and computers over here. And if you're interested in some good conspiracy movies, I know a ton lol. Check out "End Game" on youtube. Also, "College Conspiracy" on youtube as well. Really interesting stuff! I'm not sure if that's what you were looking for though. Alien conspiracies are really interesting but I don't know of any good movies about that at the top of my head. I'll get back to you! :)

  16. Such an lovely little community right there. I understand why you want to live there, I feel the same just looking at this photos. I also really like the idea of having a mobile home, not going to have to rent apparments, pay the rent and have to walk up and down on the stairs every day, all the time on one place. Instead you can go wherever you feel like, which sounds so much better for a nomadic soul like me.

    Also got to say that I love your turqoise skull necklace, that is one thing that amazes me about this outfit. Can't say I seen it on any other blog I follow.

    ReplyDelete
  17. gaaahhhh. you look perfect. wow. I cant even tell you what my favorite part of your outfit is.. the necklace? those boots? your skirt? ahh everything is perfect.
    That trailer park sounds really cool.. I have been thinking how it would be kinda cool to live in a trailer park, but I always feel like they can be kinda sketchy, but I would like to live in a nice trailer park.. the community would be so fun.. as long as there were no tornadoes..

  53. I'm usually embarrassed to admit that I still have a soft spot for anime! Mostly just a few 90s favourites like Trigun, but I've definitely seen Death Note -- up until L died. After that, I lost interest!

    Also, I love your skull necklace! I have some beads just like that that I'll be using to make a necklace to sell online, if I can ever remember to make it.
