Staving It Off

Had a very bad case of the Mondays today.
Outfit was the definite highlight. This is my favorite cardie ever.
It was insanely windy when I took these, so forgive the rogue hair and skirt.


skirt, cardigan, & headband, forever 21 ~ tank, target ~ tights, mom's ~ shoes, converse ~ watch, gift

Cheering me up significantly? These photos by Sandra Freij. The colors are just so perfect and interesting. Will definitely post more by her soon.




If you have the Mondays as well, try these quick fixes:

the dark side of garfield
the most horrifying and hilarious web comic
a fascinating virtual tour
radio stations just for you
an insanely entertaining and meticulously organized shoe collection

Speaking of shoes, these are all adorable and to die for. This pair is my favorite.


I have developed an unwavering love for the A.P.C. spring/summer men's collection. It's very English-guido-meets-Alex-Kapranos-on-holiday, and the model is rather tasty. These are my favorites.


Hope you're having a better Monday than I am!

Mondays can be terrible things.
Those colorful pics are great.
P.S. My tattoos have a lot of significance--I drew them myself, the color blue has importance, and the birds themselves are martlets (mythological birds without feet which are piled with symbolism). :)

awww I hope it has a happy ending!
I reall love how you're paired the leopard with the floral tights, stroke of genius really!

I, on the other hand, enjoy Mondays as the extension of the weekend, as I have a habit of skipping Monday's boring lectures ;D
I love that collection, v. inspiring actually. and I like anyone who mentions Alex Kapranos (in any context) ;)

OMG! Those shoes are to die for! I think they're too beautiful to wear and if I have them, I'd probably just put them in a box and admire them and pet them..haha. xxoxoxo

Chuckies! I need some Chucks big time : ( Unfortunately I am a disgusting poor law student, so that purchase is going to have to wait. My friends from like 07 - 08 called one particular "style" of outfit that I would wear the "uniform," I would wear chucks (b/w) with skinny jeans or cut off shorts and an aa crew neck tee. My accessory? One of my MJs. : )
