    Stranger Bird Vintage | Outfit

      If you follow me on Snapchat (and if you don’t, GO DO IT – @eccentricowl) you will have seen a preview of this dress both when it came in the mail, and then today as I shared my editing process. Now, these photos aren’t 100% perfect since the sunlight interfered a bit, but this dress… this dress is beyond perfection. I have worked with Jenny from Stranger Bird Vintage in the past (this boho Valentine’s day look, and this gorgeous plaid dress), and I have always loved her shop! Recently she contacted me to say she’s moving and wanted to know if I’d like to help her downsize her…

    Early Summer | Outfit

    Well, my blog-every-day and wear-a-dress-or-skirt-every-day roll ended real fast at the appearance of a very emotional event — for Evie, anyway. Teething hit my sunshine baby hard and sudden. After the relatively mild entrance of three teeth, her gums decided to put up a fight and we’ve so far had three solid days of nonstop drool, crying, mild fever, and very, very swollen gums. It looks to me like she’s getting about five teeth at once; not only is her second upper front tooth struggling to appear, but at least four other spots in her gums are swelling. No wonder she’s refused to let me put her down for more…

    Gingham and Dots | Outfit

    Yesterday, on a whim, I decided to do something a little different and film a get ready with me video. I was feeling really inspired by Hannah and Kristabel, and just thought… I really miss making videos. I used to do a lot of vlogs and tutorials, but somewhere along the line I quit. I think I just got too busy, and focused more on photography and fashion blogging, and I didn’t know how videos would fit into that. But after yesterday and filming the OOTD portion of the above video, I think I might start making more videos. Outfit videos are actually pretty fun to film! It’s been an…

    Awkward Unicorns | Meet Up with The Cutie Life!

    Happy Monday! If you needed a pick-me-up since it’s Monday and all, I think this post will do it. On Saturday, Hilary from The Cutie Life and I got together to take some blog photos and make some memories. Hilary and I have actually hung out a few times already, and we’re always having so much fun we never get around to actually taking photos. But we made that our sole goal on Saturday, and oh boy. We are the most enviably glorious awkward unicorns together. Hilary is pretty much exactly as you might expect her to be from reading her blog: enthusiastic, sweet, positive, and silly. You might not…

    Seven Years | Outfit

    Today is my 7-year blog anniversary! When I started this blog, I had no idea what it would turn into. I was 20, we had just moved to a new state, and I was looking for some sort of outlet to record my thoughts and all of the weird things I liked. (Hello, icanhazcheezburger — does anyone still read that site? It has gone downhill, sadly.) I was only a baby in terms of what I liked about fashion; I only started dressing up more to go out because people didn’t know me and I felt a bit freer in terms of style. My first fashion post that is still…
