Landlocked Is For Losers

I really wanted to stand by a puddle to take these pictures, but they were all kind of gross.  So I grabbed this conch shell that my dad found while scuba diving around the time I was born.  I felt as though I had the power of speech when I held it, along the lines of Lord of the Flies.  (No pigs were harmed in this photo shoot).

I couldn't really hear the ocean - there's too many cars on the street down the alley.  I did hear the sound of SPRING though.  It was warm all day today.  It was lovely.

Skirt: Ann Taylor
Shirt: Zara
Necklace: Kriston Todd boutique in Little Rock
Shoes: Target
Conch shell: my dad, I think from Panama when he and my mom were stationed there
Fact that my tattoo looks like a ship's steering wheel: coincidence

And if you happen to have Friday off, (I put in my request two weeks ago), don't forget it's the New Media Fashion Boutique Crawl!  

From Indiana: "All of the shops on 2nd Street have offered the boutique crawlers a discount and several of the shops are offering us snacks and drinks. The boutique crawl starts at 12:30 p.m. at Eliza Page, where she will be offering champagne. The whole crawl will be over by 6:30, but if anyone is hungry afterward, we've been offered 50% off appetizers at Cru (back on 2nd Street, where I presume most of us will park since that's the start)."
I hope to see you there, and I hope I'm not feeling super shy that day, I feel like such a dork in front of new (all?) people!

@Sam - come to Austin for the day!

@flowermash - thank you! and you should make a trip to Austin on Friday too! I'd love to meet yall!

@Ms. B - thank you! I loved nautical so much I joined the navy in college - then thought better of it and now just wear the clothes :)

@ Starr - I agree, poor Piggy and poor momma pig :(

Austin is great, a friend of mine described it as "almost too easy," because everything you could want is right here: natural spring, live music, caves (ha!), good beer, walkable bikeable streets, dog parks, warm weather... it is almost too good to be true, most of the time.

But Little Rock is home :)

@Sadey - aww thank you lady!
