Slow Hummingbird

  Tee - Theme, thrifted
Necklace - thrifted
Skinny jeans - One Star, thrifted new stock
Flats - Indigo by Clarks, ebay

Today's post comes in mutiple parts. First up on the agenda - yesterday's outfit. I got grease splatter on my shirt from cooking dinner (stir fry! yum!), and wound up just changing. I wasn't planning to photograph this, but I really loved how the little star necklace looked with this blue (mullet!) shirt. The star pendant was a goodwill find. There's a wonderfully sweet lady who works there that I've discussed my style preferences with - so she hooked me up! I wouldn't have noticed this necklace because it was hidden on a mannequin, but she pulled it right off for me. She also promised to keep an eye out for future stuff.

Part two: I used to have a Mission Statement page. It has now been renamed due to This Awesome Post. I really like the idea of having a personal mission/directive to my style and life aspirations. It's hard to put it all in words, but every time I've gone to edit that page, the text says everything I base my blogging on. The only thing that hasn't felt right is the title. While those things are my mission, they're only my "main" mission - there is so much I want to get involved with. Silly, yes. Nerd-gasm Happy inducing, absolutely.

Part three: Shooooooes These are the first of the ebay batch. These were a reasonable BIN, loved the shape and color, wish I had known to size down. They'll be a fine flat for winter, but they need socks or I feel a bit slide-y in them. The other pairs fit great though. So 3/4 perfect fit, awesome. These ARE comfortable nonetheless. I'll happily grab this brand again - in a size 6.

Part four: I feel like I've barely slowed down. I've been horribly sick, had test after test, got bad news, good news, and kept on running. I think now is a great time to talk about my Wellness project. I plan to begin meditation on a daily basis starting Monday. I feel like I'm cracking a bit at the seams, and I don't want this reflect through to the blog. Wish me luck.

(if you made it through all that, thanks!)


  1. Bonus you got a friend at the Goodwill. That can be a great little treasure to have. Our Goodwill is so big, I don't think I have even seen the same person working there.

    The shoes rock! Love your new Prime Directive statement.

    Also, good for you to take action and start meditating. I think sometimes in our busy and crazy lives, we never have a minute to just stop and breathe. It can certainly wear you down. I am a crash and burn type person. I can go like the Energizer Bunny forever, and then I just crash and get sick and sleep for two days. Good luck!

  2. Sounds like you have a lot going on!

    Having a Prime Directive is such a good idea. I am the type of person who likes things to develop organically and am so bad about stuff like that.

  3. I like how this came out as well. This mullet top is super cute. Also good to have a friend at the Goodwill! I am in love with those Clarks flats!

  4. Love this color on you. The shoes are great. I saw some Clarks this weekend that looked really cool. The jeans are just really cool.

  5. sounds like you need a little down time to unwind and feel better. you look great though, and the color is fab on you. i hate when i get grease on my clothes, it makes me insane cuz it's so hard to get out!!!

  6. Yay for mullet shirts! The next step in mullets.

  7. Oh, hon, look after yourself! Don't burn yourself out.

    Love the look - close-up of the shoes?? I adore Indigo by Clarke's - I have a bunch of them.

  8. Haha--mullet shirt. :)

    That's awesome that you're going to start meditating. I'm a semi-Buddhist and I can't wait to hear how it goes for you. I recently had to take a step back from life because I was burning out. Take care of yourself! What else are you including in your Wellness project?


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
