Hey there!

I'm obsessed with legwear, I feel like my 7 pairs of black tights and 6 pairs of other various colors, plus the amount of socks I own (hint: it's 35) can contest to that. I don't like my legs so adorning them in such lovely pieces is what gets me into skirts and shorts. These lovely navy over the knee socks are from Forever 21, from the bins near the front registers. They're cute, aren't they? They'll definitely serve more of a purpose in fall and winter, but I think I can make them work for the cooler summer days.

I like being matchy sometimes. I paired my new over the knee socks with my navy peter pan blouse from Target, and I layered my pleated skirt over the blouse. So cute!

I've been watching Star Trek (all movies, series, episodes) on repeat for the last 10 years and there is just one thing I can't get over no matter how hard I try: the ships. They're supposed to be the most technologically advanced pieces of machinery to ever exist, yet, they randomly throw sparks at you and rebel at every chance they get. It's beginning to make me think we should have run these Galaxy Class ships across a few more drawing boards before we built one. But, I still can not get over the beauty of them. I would give up anything to serve in Starfleet, and it's actually a huge disappointment that our interplanetary involvement is simply landing probes on far away planets and not creating ships capable of actually exploring them. I have coped with realization that space travel is beyond my lifetime, but I hope that my great grandchildren will be alive when the first manned space craft reaches a far away planet. And, that first contact by a peaceful alien race is established. I'm a Trekkie and maybe that makes my love for space and aliens and space travel a bit too romantic, but I can't help it; space is beautiful.

    when you wear fits like this do people evr look at ya weird

    1. I don't come from a fashionable city, so they definitely do a double take. It comes to a shock to people when I walk around Target, Walmart or Meijer in an outfit like this because most don't even try. I often get "whats the occasion" and "why are you dressed like that?" But, to be honest, it's kind of cool to me. Because, I feel unique in this town, because I don't see anyone else with an appreciation for style.

  3. Those boots are great!! Nice look :)


  4. I love your boots!! I've been looking for some like those everywhere! I love your blog, just followed you! :)
