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.

Thats a really cute blouse. I like the little birds.
Thanks! Me too. 🙂
The style of that top is really cute on you! You made me LOL too with your animal imagery. Have a great day!
Haha, glad I’m not the only one who gets a kick out of things like that. Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
I love animal print! Although I am a fan of literal animal prints and patterns, give me the leopard.
I also love the Portlandia reference, such a good show! I haven’t caught up on the new episodes yet but you reminded me that I should do that.
Thanks! And actually I’ve never seen Portlandia and did not realize the ‘put a bird on it’ meme was from that. The more you know!
I love that top on you, it looks awesome!
Aw, thank you! 😀
Such a pretty top!!! My week is going well. Nothing too far out of the ordinary! Which can usually be a good thing. 😉
Thanks! Glad your week is going well. And I know what you mean – sometimes no news is good news. 🙂
Oh I love these pants! What a great color. Perfect for winter! Thanks for linking up!
They might be my favorite pair of colored denim, though my mustard ones are up there too. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, hope you’re having a great trip!
You look great! Love that wrap top.
I support this Feb. shopping ban. If I can do it YOU CAN TOO! You’ve GOT THIS!
Thanks!! 🙂 I’m partial to wrap tops. I love the way they accentuate the waist.
Any secrets for sticking to a shopping ban? I’m going to try it.
I need that shirt in my life. Also, I was JUST thinking about doing a shopping ban in February…but I need someone to hold me accountable. Shopping ban buddies??
It is a pretty great shirt. 🙂
I need someone to hold me accountable, too! I’d be up for being shopping ban buddies. How should we go about it?
hey, thanks for stopping by our blog! I love this bird top =)
No problem, and thanks for returning the favor! 😀
I love that top! So cute! The whole outfit is lovely!!! Thanks for stoping by my bog!
Thank you so much! Glad you stopped by here, too. 😀
That top is absolutely adorable! How was your shopping experience with eShakti? Also- great idea to post your color palette at the end of each post!
Thanks!! 😀 I’ve had quite good experiences overall with eShakti. This top, for instance, originally had longer sleeves and a shorter torso, but I could customize those options along with my exact size. And I love how it turned out. 🙂 I have a few other tops and dresses from them, too.
oh this top is So pretty and the photos look fab :o)
Thank you!! I’m pleased with how the photos turned out, camera oopsies aside. 🙂
You’re quite photogenic, girl! Love that outfit…the bird print is just darling.
Aw, thanks! I tend to think the opposite (don’t we all?) so thanks for the positive vibe! 😀
I have a few bird print outfits, too!
They’re fun prints, aren’t they? 🙂
