Hanging With My Gnomie6:01 PM
So there is a not-so-well-kept secret about Oak Park. On someone's front lawn, carved out of what appears to have been a tree trunk, is a giant lawn gnome. I have no idea when this gnome came to be, it has been there ever since I was little and had a paper route in the area, it was there in high school when some classmates had tried to steal it (hence the guess that it was actually carved out of a trunk) and it is still, to this day, sitting patently on someone's lawn on Oak Park Blvd.
Kyle was having a mini-freak out when we were taking these, he kept saying "Omg, we're on someone's lawn, they are going to call the cops!" But come on! If you have a giant lawn gnome in your front lawn you are just asking for someone to take a picture of, or with it! I personally think lawn gnomes are awesome and will be incorporating some into my garden this summer. But there is another blogger, one that I have been a fan of since I started blogging back in '09 that loves gnomes and so after driving past it a few weeks ago I knew that I had to take pictures with it. Kallie, of Happy, Honey and Lark, I hope you like my friend here!
I have also noticed that lately, I have been not liking some of my clothes. I have always leaned toward 60's or 90's style clothing, a little laid-back & slightly rocker or girly, and a little vintage-prep for work. I have habit of buying sundresses or tank tops that are cheap and even though they may look alright on me and fit right, I don't like them. I think I am going to have to purge the closet and give some clothes away to people who will actually wear them instead of just hoarding clothes like I do. I have mostly been liking the thrifted items that I have bought or the quirky dresses I have bought from Mod Cloth lately. I guess I mostly like items that stand out to me and that can be worn in several different ways. Like this jumper for instance, I have worn it in the colder months with flannels and sweaters layered under it, with light tops in the warm months like I have here, and I have also worn it with a summer top and over shorts. So I guess as I am making some healthier life changes, I am going to make some wardrobe changes as well. I want to be more "me" and just really fall into my own style now that I have spent almost two years experimenting with style. Hopefully this means that there are lots of remixes to come :)
