Voyage for Spring Blossoms

This week I noticed a few plants were slowly starting to peek their pretty little peddles out. Got me all sorts of excited and I knew I had to get some photos stat. Those of you who follow my Instagram probably already noticed but I LOVE FLOWERS! During Spring/Summer I try to post at least one photo every week for #FlowerFriday. I've been doing this for the past two or three years now and I really enjoy it. Something about getting super close and seeing them like a teeny-tiny faerie may <3
Before leaving on our voyage, I decided to bust out my pink & blue swirl ice cream cone lip gloss necklace I found in the kids section. Comes in very handy and a sweet pop of cute for a Spring/Summer accessory!
Such a lovely day out...
Fox & I decided to take a Ferry across the Puget Sound. The boat was extremely full but we did manage to snap a few photos... even if it meant flashing at least 30 strangers my ass to get this stunning photo of Fox in her vintage coat and 'Fluttershy' Necklace from Fathom Fortuna(it's very windy on the ferry)HA:P
After the stuffy ferry ride we stumbled upon a row of gorgeous blossoming trees and this bad ass lion! The statue was too perfect for the little 'Leo' Fox <3
Another highlight of the week, would definitely have to be receiving my birthday gift from my Grandmother. She is seriously the raddest Granny ever for getting me a pair of 'Mermaid Chameleon' Platform Boots from Black Milk X Solestruck:D

'Mermaid Chameleon'
is the best way to describe these babies. Not only are they a uniquely mesmerizing print, but have just the right amount of platform to still be comfortable on long adventures. I couldn't be more satisfied, expect to see them on the blog often!
I'm trying to document more of my personal adventures on here but don't forget to check out Facebook and Instagram to see what we get into next!;)

Mutilated Mermaids & Computer Guts

This outfit is strangely nostalgic for me... ok well maybe the mermaid part isn't that strange. Plenty of people like mermaids. My favorite memory of mermaids would have to be the colorful ones from the movie 'Hook'. I was always so mesmerized by their beautiful hair and the sparkly scales! See for yourself...

The strange part I'm referring to is the circuit boards. My dad is a computer engineer so growing up we always had random computer pieces laying around. I thought they were interesting to look at but never really understood what they were for until my dad explained it to me one day. What can I say... I'm computer geekin', even their guts are pretty to me. Ha! #SuperNERDStatus <3
These 'Circuit Board' leggings I got from Black Milk bring a rush of childhood memories back every time I see them, it's wonderful!
As you may have already noticed... the mermaid on my shirt isn't exactly like my favorites from childhood. It's just a tiny bit more dark and morbid but like most of the Atrocious Works designs, it really grabbed my attention.  
I think the dissected mermaid image pairs so well with the subtle print of computer guts. The idea of technology vs. mythology may be a bit of stretch, but the colors work together and over sized tops with tight fitting or no bottoms at all is honestly one of my favorite combos. It may not create the most flattering silhouettes but it's one I personally rock all of the time in my daily wardrobe. Because in my style book nostalgia and comfort win! ;)
