All The Fishes In The Sea

Today has been such a wonderful day! I FINALLY got my camera after two months without one. I carried it around all day like a child with a new kitten. I couldn't be happier...unless I got a new kitten!


This was my first attempt at pattern mixing. I think I did it right. Maybe, possibly? Pattern mixing is something I've always been somewhat afraid to do. I think I did a good job for my first time. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, but I think it works.


I love accessories with animals or bugs even. They add a bit of character. Birds are my favorite to wear, but I love wearing unique animals as well. Not that I would necessarily call fish unique, but when it comes to jewelry you don't see people wearing them every day.

I saw a tutorial on these little bird nest rings a few weeks ago. My mother had some wire and beads shoved away in our office closet so I got to work. I made three in one night! I will put up a tutorial soon on how to make them. It's so easy and they are just so cute!

I hope you all enjoyed finally seeing an outfit post! I'm sorry it's been so long. I won't be taking anymore two month breaks again. Promise.

I'm off to get ice cream with my mother. Have a splendid night!

Pattern mixing = complete success!
At first glace I just assumed it was a dress. That's how you know you did it right! haha

Daaang, you've got a lot of fun jewelry going on! I don't recall ever seeing fish stuff before, but I think it's clever that the scales are little dangly things. It's just such a cool piece of jewelry!!

Definitely a successful print-mixing exercise! I love the mix in pattern and texture, and the colours are so lovely and soft. Love the jewellery too, that fish necklace is awesome x
