Outfit Post: Walk with the Animal Prints

Something about animal prints makes me want to be in a black & white picture. They seem classy and rebellious all at the same time, and animal prints always seem to reappear in fashion every season. This stunning cut had the quarter sleeves and collar which is a great transitional piece that can be used throughout the seasons. Its lightweight cotton is breathable and leaves the lady looking like she's ready to take a bite out of life! 

A simple necklace works well with the print

Love the sleeves!
Pop up the collar  and go.

Red lips and a Pork Chop Rules ring

A touch-up and then your off...

Prints on Parade

Feeling like making a mash up with prints and colors after a weekend full of fun, friends, good food and drinks! Love the elephants on this dress. I saw my farming friend Kellan at an event this weekend and she mentioned she may have an extra camera lying around for me, which would be wonderful to continue with some more varied photos.  I also hung out with the amazing Kerry D who is one of the most supportive, charming, and stylish ladies. I am looking forward to more fun and fashion with her in the future. 

This owl purse is sure to be a 'hoot-hit', especially for my bike adventures.

Mixing prints but keeping it in the cool color scheme.

One of my favorite necklaces, from FHF

You can't go wrong with fluttery sleeves. These are short and sweet!

Feathers and Freedom

The first overcast day brings plaid and feathers out of my closet. 
I think the hairpiece speaks for itself and sometimes in an outfit
that is what you need. Especially when contemplating both the 
Dark and Light sides of oneself. A moody story in pictures.

Turn Around

Even in doubt...

Something is happening...

Thinking of blue sky...

A Dance.

Feathers & Flights of Freedom
Till next time... 

What I'm Wearing Now~

Hairpiece with vintage feathers and rhinestones, C&C
Feather and crystal earrings, Flaming Hag Folkwear

Days of Summer

Summer is hanging on and although I really can't wait to bring out some Fall scarves and sweaters, I admire its tenacity!
Scalloped Purse Doubles as a Fan. 
 It makes me wonder about the seasons and how everything fits together. The one thing I really enjoy about Summer is bike riding and feeling the wind flying past when you go down a really big hill.

Thinking about Fall and Fun.

This dress is
perfect for biking all around town! It also has a pocket which I love. It's all about relaxing when it's hot and enjoying the last days of Summer. 
Feel the Breeze in Flutter Sleeves.
What do you admire in your life?

Vision Quest in Blue

I had a vision of a place to surrender my weariness and flourish. I brought my blue umbrella and stayed awhile. 
This looks like a shady spot.

All Feathers and Flutter!
Looking to find some courage and a creativity recharge in the coming days. I have lots of ideas and need to give them some structure. 

Hoping to get a camera soon to take this quest on the road.  Loving all the beautiful blogs I am seeing out there. 

P.S. (Prairie Splendor) Have fun searching out in the world for your own special spots!

What I'm Wearing Now:
Dress, Indian print maxi from C&C
Black Top, thrifted
Blue Umbrella, State Fair
Belt, Loft

Rays of Sunshine Through the Flower Child

It's All I have to bring to-day,
This, and my heart beside,
This, and my heart, and all the fields,
And all the meadows wide.

Be sure you count, should I forget, --
Some one the sum could tell,--
This, and my heart, and all the bees
Which in the clover dwell.

~Emily Dickinson

Welcome to my little corner of the Prairie! Today I felt some real Flower Child coming out. 
Sometimes people ask me, "What are you wearing?" My answer to that is my heart, my soul, my story in the present with a glance back at the past.

 I realize that in everything new that is created there is a bit of something that has existed before. I love the idea of unburdened freedom through fashion. I hope to see you there soon! Don't be afraid to shine because we all bring a unique light.
