Camo In The Desert

Camo has been a really big trend recently, and honestly, I’m here for it. Now, I’m not talking about camo Crocs that your 15 year old cousin in Michigan wears with his cargo shorts (Crocs are a fashion abomination). I’m talking about camo done in a non-tacky way.

I tucked my camo tee from Free People into a pair of cool studded skinny jeans from Levi’s. I paired it with some western-style booties from Jeffrey Campbell, a western belt from B-Low The Belt, and a snake print bag from AllSaints. That’s right. I’m mixing prints over here. Watch out.

For accessories, I opted for my trusty 70’s-style glasses that I actually need to see because I’m blind without them. I also went for my favorite dagger necklace from The Great Frog and some chunky rings. My dagger necklace is engraved, but they have a plain option as well if that’s not really your thing.

Hello Again

If you’re new here, hello. Prepare for a personal-ass post.

If you’ve been here before, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve changed my blog’s name and deleted all my old posts. While it’s been almost a year since I’ve written anything, it’s definitely been a hell of a year.

I’ve always said I wanted this blog to be fun. I would never let it become a job or a chore. I’ve never cared about being a blogger or an influencer or whatever. I just wanted my little corner of the internet where I could express everything I love. But then it stopped being fun so I stopped blogging.

I think I was just really depressed for a while and didn’t want to admit it. I was in a relationship that was having major issues, dealing with family drama, and the future of my career was up in the air. I always ended up having to be the one that held the fort down, was the shoulder to cry on, and was the voice of reason. But then I think I started to lose myself a little bit and fell into a depression and anxiety worm hole.

Then, about a month before I turned 25, I ended my long term relationship, bought my first place, tried to distance myself from drama, and finally got my career in order. I spent the first half of my 20’s trying to live for other people, but I’m going to be spending the rest of my life living for myself.

Anyways, sorry for the personal post. Maybe it makes up for almost a year of not writing anything. I promise I’ll come back this time.
