the daily garb: snails.

I really want to start sharing more art on kai-leidoscope, since I love it so much. I'm a creative person, and using these creative gifts God has blessed me with, that I enjoy so much, is what gets me through the day in a joyful manner :) So i think when I upload my daily garb, I'm going to start titling it by a song name, or a piece of art or a quote or something like that: 1. Because I think it'd be fun and a way to share some things I enjoy with you and 2. Because I have the hardest time coming up with post titles..I'm really slackin' hahaa.
So yeah...that's just what's going through my head right now.
This sweater was another one of those buys where I was picking through the sale section at Gap and accidentally fell in love with an XL sweater..I have far too many of these in my closet. Well I just really liked it and so figured why not try it on. Turns out it's perfect, just another oversized sweater to add to my collection. Woohoo. How could I not buy it, I mean look at those gold buttons...all this to say, don't overlook sizes that you don't normally wear. Simply give it a try, it may be your new favorite item :)
 My hair was in some kind of crazy double waterfall braid thing, I'm not really sure.. :)
Sweater: Gap
Scarf: Target
Black Skinnys: Pac Sun
Boots: Old Navy

So today's quote on my picture comes from the lyrics of Snails, by the Format. You may recognize the singers voice. That's because he is now the singer in Fun, the band that sings We are Young and Some Nights. So this song is some of his older stuff, I love the lyrics.

  4. There is nothing better than cozying up in a "too big for me" sweater. Give the outfit a very comfortable vibe feel. Loving the photos!

  7. I love what you are wearing, your sweater and especially your hair! Thank you very much for your super sweet and sincere comment, it means so much that you took the time to write all of that! I did find some black ankle boots with studs, they're the black Nighthawk ones from Office. I'm lusting after them so badly, possibly a christmas present to myself. Have a look, they're amazing!
