The Pendulum Swings

1.2.12

 
Sweater - hand me down
Belt & Tights - F21
Dress - Etsy
Shoes - Payless

I sometimes feel like a paradox, or maybe an oxymoron, if I can become a concept or a grammatical term instead of a person that is.  I strive for simplicity and complexity at the same time; for minimalism and shabby chic clutter.  In life surroundings, to design, to well everything, I seem to swing from moments of restraint to indulgence, thoughtful self-possession to emotional impulse.  My sartorial sense swings from the extremes of ruffles, lace, florals, and colors, to that of monochromatic minimalism.  I have yet to find the perfect balance that could define me. 

True Story:
Baby says with purpose, "A yaba gaba do do me goo."
Husband says, "Now that, whatever she said, was a full sentence."

  1. This is super cute, I love the red with the florals - I never would have thought to put them together, but they work amazingly well =)

    @Sian - I always love pairing things that "shouldn't" go together.

  4. LOVE the outfit and now I know why we mesh so well. I'm often perplexed at my own personality because I'm very similar to you in the paradoxes. We're mysteries, huh? :)

  6. @Mama - yes we are. I often wish I could find a uniform I'm happy in, but no such luck yet. Then I think," Would that bore me?"

    @Linda Z - thank you so much! That's really kind of you to say :)
