Flower Child

Today’s outfit. I’ll update with the other outfits and voting in a few hours, but I have to run!

Details: Shirt, $3.99; Skirt, $2.00; Belt, $0.99; Ring, $1.50; Shoes, $10 or under; Flowers, free.
Approximate outfit cost: $18.48

I feel like such a hippie. This skirt reminds me of a tablecloth in print. Thankfully, the fabric is really soft, so it doesn’t feelΒ like a tablecloth.

Also, is it just me, or does my hair look really dark in this picture?:

I managed to fool a few people into thinking that this:

Β …was real.

It’s not real. It’s a rub-on tattoo. I don’t think I’d ever get a real tattoo– one,because of the image it tends to represent to the public about myself (yes, nobody should judge you just because you have a tattoo, but as a woman trying to be a good example of Christ… well… tattoos don’t really give out the impression that I’m wholesome and innocent. Y’know? I sometimes feel bad just having the occasional rub-on tattoo on my wrist when I’m around people who don’t know me and don’t know that the tattoo isn’t real.) and two, because I tend to get bored with things quickly, and I would want to change it about two weeks after I’d gotten it. Permanent ink isn’t a good idea for me.

However, if I didΒ ever get a tattoo, it would be on this wrist in this place… and I’d probably be a girly-cliche and go with a butterfly. Either that, or I’d get something that was meaningful to myself and my life.

But I am pretty sure I’ll never get a tattoo. Unless it’s rub-on.

So! Before I get any more random, it’s voting time!

I was such a repeater this week.

And you know, I’m really torn between The Blue Giraffe and today’s outfit. Same shirt… different skirt… but I love them both. Anyway.

Have a lovely Saturday, and don’t forget to wish your mother Happy Mother’s Day! I won’t be posting tomorrow… y’know… with Mother’s Day and all that. πŸ˜‰

    YES! I was between the first and this one too! I voted for todays after many momments of thought πŸ˜€ I really love this outfit, the colors look perfect on you! And indeed your hair does look darker in that pic, maybe because of the light… It’s beautiful nevertheless πŸ™‚ I agree about the tatoos too. I really love them and I WILL have one when mom would not be able to tell me what not to do, but I know what you mean… Tatoos are supposed to be bad. Oh well πŸ™‚

    Btw, can I be random as well?? I just had my first driving lesson with my daddy! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ It was aweeeeeeeesome and I didn’t ruin the car πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ hahah! Random over πŸ˜€

    Bye bye! Happy Mother’s Day! πŸ˜€

      It probably is just the lighting of the webcam. It tends to make me look really pale and dark-haired. πŸ˜€
      Yeah, family also plays a part in why I probably will never get a tattoo– my mom wouldn’t appreciate it, and I respect that. So it’s fun to have the temporary ones (I want to do henna someday) but I’d never get a permanent one. πŸ˜€

      Exciting!!! I’m glad you didn’t ruin the car, hehe! Hopefully you never will! (Be as random as you want, by the way. :D)

    DRAGON!!!!!!!!!! <3 πŸ™‚ If I got a tattoo, it'd be of a dragon. They make me happy.

    (PS. My brother got a tattoo recently. It's of a heart where the tail end of it twists down around itself and sort of ends up looking like a DNA strand. It's on his shoulder. My mom's not happy. Not because of the tattoo, but because they're expensive and my mom doesn't think he should be spending his money like that.)

    At any rate, maybe it's just me but your background image has…gone. And so have the colors in your side bar. It kind of looks good though, in a very simple sort of way. πŸ™‚ I did like your background, however.

    • Mara

      I should have known! πŸ˜€ Hehe. Dragon tattoos ARE pretty cool (as are dragons).

      Your brother’s tattoo sounds really amazing, actually. And your mom might be right– but you know, it just depends on whether he’s spending his money on a tattoo when he has more important things to spend it on, or whether it was money he didn’t need elsewhere.

      It’s not just you– I changed my theme back to Koi, because– while I liked the background and the sidebar and the comments form of the other theme– there were way too many colors going on for me, and since I already do a lot of pictures and etc, I like the blog better with a simpler theme. I might put the background back, but we’ll see. I’m kind of tired of it and want something new. πŸ˜€

      • someonetookmyusername

        Yeah, me too. The clouds were nice but they’ve gotten old, me thinks. I’m not sure what I’m going to do now. (But I’m thinking about…crazy colors. Not sure how that transforms into a layout, however. Hmmm…project for tonight? I think so. πŸ™‚ ) At any rate, simple is nice and clean.

        • Mara

          The clouds on your theme are really cute. I kept meaning to say something, but always forgot because I’d read your blogs and get distracted.

          I know! You could use dragons! Dragons are… um… shiny…?

        • someonetookmyusername

          Thank you! It’s a cute little theme and I do like it. Maybe I’ll come back to it one day but for now…

          …dragons? πŸ˜€

          Actually, now I’m thinking about sort of a vintage floral thing. I’m not sure how that’s going to work, but…it’s worth a shot. πŸ™‚ (Just so you know, it looks awesome in my head.)

          • Mara

            Oooooh I just looked at your blog, and I LOVE the new theme! It’s so pretty! It looks awesome in real life, too. πŸ˜€
