Only Love Is All Maroon

skirt: swap, from mousevox vintage, top: gap, cardigan: mom's, belt & heels: goodwill, purse: thrifted, tights: UO
As I listen to "Flume" by Bon Iver, I recall an old friend of mine telling me that he thought the man behind Bon Iver, Justin Vernon, writes lyrics that don't exactly make sense at all - that just sound good with the music and melody. I find this funny and ironic as I now listen to this song. I actually have fallen in love with Bon Iver and the romantic, tender feeling of his music. It's lovely for late nights, with the rain falling softly outside. Which is what I'm doing now.

I spent the afternoon and evening with Nathaniel and we took these photos before the rain came... luckily I got some photos of this skirt, finally. It is part of the Secondhand Swap that I mentioned a bit ago - started by Lily of Love Charles Vintage. This skirt was sent to me along with this top from Rachel of Mousevox, who is also part of the swap. It's about time I send both pieces onto the next girl! It's been a bit too long, haha.
We browsed Goodwill for a bit, then got some pizza and spent the remainder of the night playing Sly Cooper, a pretty awesome PS2 game about a thieving raccoon. A crazy evening if you ask me. ;) We sure know how to party on a Saturday night!

It's about time for me to sleep; I apologize for this going out so late at night! I've really been wanting to blog more, but succumbing to the use of a tripod with no remote has become frustrating and not as fun as asking my boyfriend to do it... and of course, he's not always around. So, hopefully I'm going to find more things that I want to blog about, and that requires putting some thought into it and going out of the norm. Sometimes I have a hard time changing a routine. We'll see, we'll see. Have a beautiful night! xxx

  9. that skirt print is so lovely!
    i love bon iver. i got to see him a couple years ago in oakland at the fox theater, and it was amazing. he commanded the entire audience to shut up, and they did (a rare thing) and got us all to sing along to wolves.
