Bear Shoulders

august 31

I had been mulling over the idea of getting a tattoo for a while now. There are two major personality roadblocks, though, that were impeding me. 1. I am remarkably fickle, and am notorious for not being able to make up my mind. Though, on the other hand, I am have a remarkable ability to dive head first and become completely, possibly overly, passionate about certain things. Go figure. And 2. I am a huge sap who turns everything into a metaphor. So, if I was going to get a tattoo, it had better be good and meaningful. I kicked around a few ideas, the first of which being a bear, just because I thought it would be awesome. Then I moved toward literature - maybe a Vonnegut sketch? I went through a big long process and ended up pretty much where I began - with a bear. It just felt right, you know? That sounds kind of silly. I guess, it's partly because I want to move to California, because I'm stuck right now some place I don't want to be, because I can't have nature around me right now so I got a little bit placed on me instead. And also, I really like bears. So, there you have it. There is a bear on my shoulder and I am so pleased. Also, excuse me while I wear this outfit forever and become that weird kid that wears the exact same clothes to school every single day. YOU CAN'T STOP ME.

Dress: Zara, Sweater: H&M, Desert Boots: Clarks

  4. Oh my gAWSH that tattoo is seriously perfect for you!!~ like, I could not have imagined a better tattoo for you. Bear with a little pine tree design in it? Too perfect. Too cool. I love it.


    Also, these pictures are super cool. I adore the backdrop that you've got--it works so well with your outfit!~ and it kind of sort of makes me want to experiment more with neat backgrounds in my outfit pictures. OH YOU INSPIRATIONAL LADY, you. <3

    Nicole! I love everything about this post--your tattoo, your fairy-grecian-teacher-like dress, your cozy sweaters, your booties, and YOU! Everything is just so lovely! I've been mulling over the idea of a tattoo too and I am going to get one this upcoming Summer once my grad school is over so hopefully over this next year (that's filled with so much change), I'll be inspired, but so far I just really want an anchor (I wanted it before it became a "hipster" thing to do). Going to Tumblr this nowwwwww!

  11. Oh my! I just found your blog via Cali Vintage's tumblr and I must say - well done on your first tattoo! Lovin' it! Also I wouldn't blame you if you wore that outfit every day, and please don't be surprised if I try to recreate it in my own wardrobe.
