what with the traveling and the holiday hubbub and the settling back into work and all that, the internet has become a total stranger. i feel like there are so many amazing things happening out there in blogland and all i want to do is catch up! well, i finally did a leeetle bit of browsing tonight and thanks to sally jane vintage who alerted me to papercup who introduced me to australian label milk from a thistle, i came across these super bold prints that make me long for the bare-legged loveliness of spring. i also dig this girl's fishbone side braid (if i made new year's resolutions "learn to fishbone braid" would be one of em) and am even kinda partial to the weird sock/clog styling. maybe it's just late? maybe the adult beverage i had at dinner is clouding my judgement? maybe this girl could make a trash bag look pretty? i don't know, but i'm feelin' it.
