#FLASHBACKFRIDAY // saturday market

his outfit shoot has always been one of my all time favorites.  It's just in the alley behind my old apartment, but the dreamy sun, dandelions, and the outfit together made this such a fun shoot.  Thinking back to this time, I used to wear so many more hats!  I just noticed all my hats hung on my closet wall the other day and I don't think I've worn any of them since I hung them there!  Perhaps my hat wearing days was just a phase.  This little boater hat looks totally cute in these photos but for some reason I feel like if I wore a boater hat now I'd look ridiculous.  Maybe I'll take that as a challenge to grab this hat off the wall and try to style it up again!

Saturday Market // May 20, 2011

Lately I've been feeling spread too thin. For being technically unemployed, I am doing a hell of a lot of things. This week I've been driving back and forth to various locations, trying to get blog designs completed, stressing about where I'm going to put all my things once I move out of my apartment, working on this blog, trying to maintain a social life and so on and so forth. I'm tired. Let's be real, I'm pretty bad at multitasking. Supposedly girls are wonders at multitasking, but this girl has a one track mind and when I try to diversify, I just end up failing at everything I'm trying to juggle. Right now I have too many commitments and not enough me to fulfill all of them and it stresses me out. Mainly because I don't like failing. I don't like admitting that I can't handle it. I'm competitive, I want to be the best at everything I do, I want to make people proud of me... but sometimes I need to remember that I also need to stay sane.

I think this summer will be good for me. I'll be reeling in some of my overcommitments and I'll be existing more in the real world than the blogosphere, and though I'll probably miss spending as much time as I do now reading my favorite blogs, I think it'll be healthy for me to take a bit of a step back.

Today I helped with a little fundraiser market for camp, which was pretty fun. I was in charge of the facepainting/hair wrap table. If you've been to my facebook page you've seen my Bowie-inspired facepaint! There ended up not being very many kids at the market though, so I only did facepaint on... me. And I only did a few hair wraps, but it was still fun.

This skirt is from Veronika from the Delightful Dozen. When I saw it I fell in love! It's such a lovely shade of light blue and the vintage cut is so great. It reminds me of something my Mom would've worn when she was my age.
