The Wednesday After Christmas

I don't want you guys to think I'm "hat-shit crazy" or anything but, yes it's true: I'm wearing another big, floppy hat. What can I say besides I love those little (or big, I guess) things with all my heart! I personally feel like adding a fancy hat makes it okay for me to dress down the rest of my outfit. Once again, I'm in it for the lazy. I got off of work at 2 pm, and raced home to beat the sun. I've been wanting to take pictures outside for the longest time. I know my indoor, slightly yellow lighting for the previous post's pics has been atrocious, so I figured the people would enjoy some sunlight! I was also uber pumped about pictures because who isn't when  they've acquired new clothes? I braved Urban Outfitters the night after Christmas and of course, everything had been ransacked. I was okay with the leftovers that I did get, however. The sequin shirt with tails, and the hat being two of those "leftover" purchases. I also picked up two cute nail polishes to add on to my nail polish fam. I suck and just had to get a generic amethyst color. I'm sorry I'm a girl! All in all the crowd at Urban wasn't too bad, and thankfully I didn't have to blow all of my Christmas money there, on account of said ransacking. Oh yeah, I will be getting a package of goodies from the store soon, because I'm addicted and went home to order more things after shopping. Just like a helpless fool.

I just wanna brag on this ring for a moment. I mean, look. So pretty. So cheap. Did I mention I have an ongoing love affair with the thrift store? I'm trying to make this thing official.
But why should the ring be upstaged by a measly brooch?? Because this "Frames" brooch is awesome, that's why. I don't know what more needs to be said. I saw this piece and got really excited. Take that however you will.
Route 66. Guy shoes. Thrifted. No shame.
And last but certainly not least, I decided to get my nose pierced again yesterday. Opposite side, this time. I'd been thinking about getting it for a while, and yesterday seemed like the opportune time. I had a bunch of money, I was sitting around bored, and i wanted to delve into some pain. No, I'm just kidding. But either way , I'm obsessed with the new piercing, and I will say that it beats my nose ring the first time around. I did it myself unfortunately, and let's just say that experience had such a barbaric feel. I was stupid and young. Alas, I have learned that piercers are good at what they do, and that I have bad intuition. NO BIG DEAL.
