wild, wild west

vest/jacket/dress: borrowed // scarf: gift // tights: forever 21 // shoes/shirt: thrifted

This is kind of an out there outfit for me. I don't know what it is, maybe all the weird proportions going on, but I was so comfy wearing this that I didn't really care. There's just something about snuggling up in a warm, fuzzy scarf that makes everything in life awesome.

Perhaps the vest wasn't necessary, but I really wanted to wear it because it reminded me of cowboys livin' it up on the prarie. It's so weird because while I was living in Alaska, everyone would call me Oklahoma girl, but now that I'm in Oregon everyone calls me Alaska girl. Well there's definitely Oklahoma blood in me. I always get excited about tornadoes (thanks to my mom) and am too excited to play the cow game on road trips. Some days I still pine for Mount Trashmore and thunderstorms and tornado sirens going off at noon, right on time.

The inevitable cowboy reference also reminds me of Matt because he loves cowboys. In fact, this upcoming summer we're planning to watch all the episodes of Firefly, Matt's favorite show, in which the main character is a cowboy figure in the future. I really love our tv dates together. Last year it was Mega64, Community, and Doctor Who, and this year it will be even more Doctor Who, Firefly, and Sherlock (which I'm hoping to get him hooked on).

I hope you have a super wonderful day today!
