Raining cats & dogs

18 September 2009










Wearing: thrifted skirt, bag ; f21 top; payless boots.


I decided to take a break from my insane packing mayhem and sneak in a few photos.
It's been raining non-stop in here in Dallas for about a week now, so anytime there is a
break I have to take advantage of it. Anyways, I have not had much clothing to wear lately
because most of it is sitting neatly folded (and crammed) into one of only
two suitcases I can bring with me. Yes... only two. The task of fitting all of my belongings
in such a small space is a dreadful thought, but I have slowly been conquering it.

In the next few days I will be quite busy packing, as I will be leaving on Tuesday afternoon.
First stop: Dublin! Any advice on Ireland must-sees? I have quite alot planned
already but I do not plan to waste a second while I am there.

Oh and while I'm in this little sharing-pieces-of-me-thing, I leave you with whats on my
latest on the go playlist:

1.) Owl Waltz- Seabear
2.) Candy says- The Velvet Underground
3.) All is Love- Karen O. & the Kids
4.) Bluish- Animal Collective
5.) Knock You down- Keri Hilson
6.) Owl Eyes- Devendra Banhart
7.) Ghosts- Laura Marling
8.) California Stars- Wilco
9.) Saturday in the Park- Chicago
10.) Kodachrome- Paul Simon

I'm known for making playlists to fit almost all my current moods. In fact I have
about 50 on-the-go playlists on my ipod, haha.

What song fits your mood right now?

Diane said...

I adore this outfit of yours and I'm actually envying your rainy weather. I'm sick of all this heat in California.

You're going to have such an amazing time overseas! Erg, hellza jealz.

Nice playlist! I'll have to check out "Seabear," purely based on that awesome name. At the moment, I think Yacht's song "Psychic City (Voodoo City)" fits my mood. Check it out on YouTube, if you're interested. The video is a little kooky and totally does NOT fit my mood but the song does.

Baśka said...

the bow in your hair looks so adorable!

jamie clare said...

lovely as usual!

and i'm obsessed with devendra. great pick =]

Ruxandra said...

Hello:)
First thanks for reading my blog.It's nice knowing that people actually do read what i write.
Secondly, this outfit is amazing.It would be quite a problem having most of your clothes in luggages and also having amazing outfits, but you did it.This is the kind of outfit i would love to wear to school.I like the simplicity, yet the feminine feel.And the bow in the hair is just amazing.
About the song, well, i'm going through different moods right now, so i'll share with you 4 songs...
~Too close for comfort-Mcfly
~Skin-Alexz Johnson
~Older-Colbie Caillat
~Rains in Asia-Jump Little Children
Have a lovely weekend.

Sophie said...
