OOTD: Overalls & a General Update

I feel like I’m on a blogging high. It feels so great to be back posting and interacting with everyone.  It pleases me that I’m logged on quite a bit, like how I was when I first started this site. Like I mentioned three posts ago, a lot has been happening in my life recently. I won’t get into all of the details now, especially not the more upsetting ones, but soon! For now, I want a nice upbeat post, so I figured why not a summery OOTD and a peek into the pleasant activities that I've been doing? 

Below is an outfit that I love and have worn a few times doing whatever it is that I've been doing (continue reading to find out what that is!). The fact that overalls are coming back into style pleases me very much.  This is definitely something I’ll be wearing a fair amount in the summer. Perhaps it will even make an appearance in a potential Summer Lookbook. ;) (I’m not posting the spring one at this point; though I said I would be. Sorry. -_-)

Overalls- Walmart
Top- Delia's
Watch- Target
Rings- PacSun
Nail Polish- Essie

So what have I been up to? Sunday drives. I've been taking quite a lot of these lately.  They’re so peaceful. My goal has been to get lost driving and thus explore new places, stop at the side of a road and meander onto random trails with a friend, and really just take in the world around me. Simply stopping and breathing. Actually being in the moment and not being so go-go-go.  BEING HAPPY. 

With this new found wanderlust, I have discovered many unique and truly beautiful places.  It’s moments like these that we can reflect on and find happiness. It’s an effortless thing that we can all do every now and again, and so much enjoyment can be taken from these types of moments. Experiences like these refresh us.  This time really has re-energized me and my creative juices are flowing better than ever!

With this surge of creativity, I have more or less been doing DIYs, painting, writing, and drawing nonstop. Here are four of the bazillion pieces I've done. 
Now everyone-stop and breathe!!! And enjoy a happy tune!!

Have a lovely day and stay fabulous!!

  8. So many things I like about this post! First of all, your art is BEAUTIFUL. And this is coming from an art major and working illustrator :)

    Secondly...I love overalls as well. I almost bought one at Bebe, but it was a tad bit too short and thus making it not very practical. I also like your nature pictures. I love hiking and being outdoors, so your words about driving around to new places really inspired me to do more of that.

    And thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm following you now on GFC.
