What's so simple in the moonlight

So, my emotions have been absolutely running amok all over my brain lately. Seriously, it's ridiculous. From feeling mopey about the people in the car accident, to wanting to cry over miranda cosgrove songs (I know. I have no idea. "Kissin' You" should not evoke any strong emotion other than disgust, but alas), to fears about my ability to write better poetry than a five year old, to love confusion, my head is a puddle of mucky, teenage-girl water at the moment. So, in an effort to clear my mind, my mom and I had a day out and went to paint pottery! Seriously, painting pottery is really relaxing for me and I love to be creative in any way possible. I picked out a mug to paint and immediately knew what I wanted on it...

One side has a mustache (that should line up swimmingly with my nose) and the other has two little birds. I think it's a pretty good representation of me: pretty girly, but with a strong affinity for mustaches. Now, my outfit

Top: UO, Shorts: Levi's, Sandals: Nordstrom, Vest: Delias, Belt: Thrifted

I've been thinking about something lately that I wanted to throw out to you guys. I'm a bit leery about bringing it up because I feel like it's a weird thought. Do you ever feel like you could really love someone if you got to know them really well, got to spend more time with them, or just speak more freely with them? I've been thinking about this a bit lately, and I'm not sure if it makes sense. I guess it's like, you know someone great, but you want to know them better, or more. And something tells you that if you could just have a real, heartfelt talk, something great could happen. Maybe this is just me, and I'm okay with that, but I was just curious about what you all thought.

Thanks for reading, you guys are the best :)



  1. I love your cup! The mustache is too great.. I love mustaches. :) and your shirt-- so cute!

  2. I know exactly the feeling you are talking about! You're not the only one it happens to me alot. I feel a connection with someone that I only kind of know and I want to get to know them better. Usualy, I never act on these feelings, but I wonder what would happen if I did?

    Anyways love your outfit, love the top (I have it to) and the cut off denim shorts. I've been wanting to get a vintage pair, but have never got around to looking. Sorry for writing so much! Got a little carried away....

  3. Adorable blog!! I feel like pottery painting was just the perfect cure for the blues. The mustache was a really cute and creative idea. And I love this outfit you're wearing!!

    About your final question I know from personal experience that once you get to know somebody better everything changes. My boyfriend and I were just friends for a while. Then we started talking more and hanging out more and got to know each other better. Within a few months I considered him one of my closest friends and thats when I started to develop feelings for him. Before that he was just my dorky friend, Corey. Hope I answered the question accurately. Love your blog, I'm following now!!

  4. i love what you did with that vest. plus i love the color of the vest. i really not a vest person but this looks really wonderful on you!
    & to answer your question my hubby and i were best friends for 2yrs before anything and we still are best YES you can... xoxo

  5. Oh wow, painting pottery sounds like so much fun! I might have to convince someone to do it with me in the near future. I totally know what you mean about how you would feel if you got to know someone better. I'm a hopeless romantic, and I've always used to let my imagination run away with me in regards to how a friendship might pan out into something more. Great relationships often come out of what starts as a friendship.

    That is SUCH a cute vest; that darker yellow is a really good color on you!
