Gypsies Caravan Snake Cuff

outfit details:  shirt - my hubbies // shorts - ae // boots - lulu*s.com // hat - f21 // necklace - roots & feathers (coming soon) // snake cuff - gypsies caravan // turquoise ring - soliloquy jewelry


Like my skeleton photo bombing?  ha ha!  We decided to leave him on our front porch year round.  Our fedex guy probably thinks we are cooks.  James always puts him in different spots and in different positions.  The other day he even got adorned with a feather in his... um, skull.  He occasionally rides on an iron chihuahua also, lol. 

A few weeks ago when we started cleaning out our garage I found a bunch of my dad's old shirts and some of James old shirts he no longer wears.  I pulled a few of my favorites out and cut them up so I could wear them as girly tees.  This waterloo is one of my favs.  James used to wear it all the time when we were dating.  And like I needed another hat.... but I could not pass up this perfect shade of hunter green hat from f21.  Its official, I have a hat problem.

Most of these were snapped when we popped out to my parents house the other day.  Things are blooming and its looking so pretty over there.  Which only makes it harder to let it go... *sigh*

An another note, lets talk about this amazing snake cuff by Gypsies Caravan.  My sweet soul friend surprised me with this baby and I'm over the moon in love.  The timing could not be more perfect since snake has been coming up for me in dreams, photos, convos, everywhere.  Snake medicine has come to me before and its always been during very transformational times.  I know this time is no different.  And this cuff, is just amazingly beautiful.

outfit details:  dress c/o persun // boots - lulu*s.com // necklace - roots and feathers // hat - lovely bird hats


So basically this dress is a badass!  That's all I gotta say.  And just fyi, it is short (I'm only 5' 2") and there is no stretch to it, so if you don't want it tight around your bum, size up, it has a baggy style to it anyway so it won't matter.  I actually can't wait for next fall now to wear this with tights and boots... mmmmm....  And I have to say it goes quite well with my little tee pee :)

This necklace is back in my shop, but its made to order and will take about two weeks (or more) before shipping, but it is available! 

I don't think Ill ever get tired of this Lovely Bird hat.  It is simply the best hat ever.

outfit details:  hat - f21 // shirt - earthbound trading // skirt - lulu*s.com // sandals c/o buyamba // necklaces + bracelets - soulmakes


First of all, I want to talk about these sandals, b/c they are so very special.  I was contacted by Buyamba about their footwear and after reading a bit about them, I fell in love instantly.  Beyond just being beautiful footwear, there is a huge mission and purpose behind them.  They have partnered with displaced women from Uganda to create these beautiful beads for their shoes.  So far this has given over 200 women fair wage jobs, giving them a better opportunity to provide for their families after the effects of war.  The beads are all made from scraps of magazines and trash, and are processed through a lead free & water based process, which makes them also environmentally friendly.  Also, a percentage of all sales of their products are also given back to the community for the children to further educate them and provide nutritional needs.  I would say these little colorful beads are doing alot of good!!! 

Their line is brand new and they just launched their spring line.  And I cannot wait for their fall line.  It will be full of amazingly yummy boots... You can read more about their mission here.

On a side note, this outfit makes me to want to go to the beach and pick up seashells so bad!  I really hope we get to have one little getaway to the beach this summer.  I could really use it.  The past two weeks have been a bit crazy and rough, but I do see the light at the end of the tunnel!  Its all good stuff, just keeping me so busy I forget to breath.

THREADS // CASUAL SUNDAY

outfit details:  tee - aerie // jeans - goodwill // rope sandals - corda // sweater c/o chicwish // necklace - roots and feathers // bracelets - spiral drift & mooreaseal (the 'Laura' namesake bracelet is on sale right now in Mooreaseal! - it's name after me, yo!!!)


I named this one casual sunday (even though this wasn't worn on a sunday, but today is sunday, so it counts!)... b/c so many days of mine are very casual.  I tend to only want to share my daily outfits that have a bit more interest to them, but I think I need to photograph more of the simple casual ones too, b/c its a huge side to my daily fashion as well.  I love just wearing jeans or cutoffs with very simply one color tees, and of course some fun jewelry.  I found this tee at aerie during one of their sales for $8 and it was just about the best spent $8 ever.  I have worn this shirt sooooo much at home, it is so so cozy.  I found these jeans at goodwill a few weeks ago, and though they are not my favorite style they are uber comfy.  AND I'm so happy its almost the season to be wearing my rope soles again!  We have still been having a few days that go back to being chilly here, but for the most part, spring is here!  I took this sweater with me the other day while running errands in case I got too cold in places.  It's way brighter than most things I wear but I think its fun! 

And speaking of casual sunday, its sunday and almost noon and I'm still in my sweatpants and sports bra.  So yeah, cheers to casual sunday!
