What I Wore: Put a Bird on It


The post where I put a bird (er, lots of them) on it. Also known as the post where my feet are cut off in every shot (scroll down, you’ll see). Also known as the post where I forgot to change my white balance settings after shooting stuff indoors and they came out weird so I just went with it and used some fun photo filters. Yeah. There were some serious camera oopsies when I shot this yesterday. But I didn’t feel like re-doing the whole shoot, so this is what you get. I actually don’t mind the light/filters, but I wish I had gotten a full shot that included shoes. Ah well. At least they’re included in the details as a close-up.

Anyway. This is what I wore yesterday, for working at home and a few errands. I love the print on this wrap top, it’s simple but interesting without being literal. Just how I like my animal prints. None of that zebra skin or leopard print for me. Since I was going with a bird theme, this bird charm necklace seemed like the perfect fit, and matched the color palette set up with my jeans. And since I have a weird sense of humor, it amused me to pair my snake ring with all of these birds and imagine they were scattered across my shirt in attempts to fly away from it. I may have made myself lol a little bit.

Work is slowing down a bit after the holiday craze, per usual. That means more free time for screenprinting and blogging, which is great. Though my bank account doesn’t always like these slow spots. I think I may try to do a shopping ban in February. I think it’d be good for me, but I also have about zero willpower when it comes to online shopping. We’ll see how it goes.
