i can wiggle my ears, i can't roll my tongue

I kind of wish I had a yellow chick to put on my shoulder, because I feel like it would match my outfit. I'm thinking of a particular bird's name, but I can't put my finger on it. I tried to Google it, but "chickpea" turned out to be peas, and "chickopee" turned out to be a gun. Yikes. I just Googled "chickadee," which is a bird, but not what I'm thinking of. Come to think of it, I think I'm envisioning the mascot for "chickadee Magazine," my childhood favourite magazine. Did you guys ever read that? Definitely should of. Those jokes derived half of my childhood fits of giggles. They were funny, I swear!

I miss doing DIYs. This headband is an ode to the summer of DIYs; I wear it all the time.

I love statement necklaces, but I have a problem with statement dresses. I can't do them! I consider this dress a "statement dress" because I'm sure it'd look great on its own. But my brain is wired so I can't wear it on its own. It's quite problematic, to be honest. But there's this wire in my brain that goes "Girl. You can't wear that by itself. Someone might be wearing it. Girl. You can't wear that by itself. Someone might be wearing it." Stupid brain. You get me?

Um. Anyways. Moving onto normalcy... I hope you guys have a wonderful week! And remember what I always say: its only 33 more days until Christmas. (Okay, I've never said this. I don't actually do a count down, but I just saw it on Facebook and I thought it'd be a fun fact). Yeah..

Your colors rock! Just saying. I am so definitely loving the purple cardigan! Oh, by the way, talking about cardigans, no one in my school ever even knew about the word cardigan until I wore one to school freshman year and people asked, "what is THAT?!" Ignorance is not a good quality to have. I answered, "It's a cardigan!" I always make sure to remind them about the name cardigan and now everyone knows what a cardigan is and what it looks like! LOL! I love your shoes! Super vintage. Super cool! You are so daring with your colors. I am not as brave. I like to stick to more muted colors and pastel colors. Nothing too bright, but you amaze me with your outfits. I think I like your style so much because it's something I am not brace enough to do, but you do it instead of me and I get to view it! LOL! Hahahaha! But really. Thank you for your comments and suggestions! I will so take your idea into consideration. I have actually thought about it in the past, but thought not to do it due to no one really reading my blog and no one would probably want to do it for me. I will have to think about it.

Great pattern on that dress, and I like the way its been paired with all those bright colours!
"Quirky Explosion" definitely describes this in my mind. (Quite a colour explosion I'd say..)
I also understand what you mean aout statement dresses.I have to make something totally my own by pairing it with something that no-one else would think of.
Thanks for the lovely comment. And I'd love to go to Central Saint Martns in London to study design when I'm older..
