sunflower print

Connor is that friend that sees your sad twitter retweets and vague Instagram posts and calls and checks up on you and invites you over that Thursday for brunch. And when you get there he’s meticulously setting up his sunflower print dishes and glasses and gently shooing a Maine Coon kitten out of the way, and over pancakes and coffee, asks you with genuine concern what’s going on and what he can do to help

So embellishing art prints with sparkle paint and gel pens might be my new favorite thing. Thanks for ordering this, N, and inspiring me to try this. On it way to you tomorrow 💕✨

what lies at the bottom of the lake? all my mother’s lies. she told me about a girl who died here. only, no one ever died there. last week i saw the sun bleed itself into the lake, it tasted like rebirth & felt like shedding skin. what lies at the bottom of the lake? all my mother’s lies. the lake, is a body of pain. mother, what girl died at the lake? was it you? convulsing & wringing. rupturing & bloody. i’ve always seen you as bulletproof. mother, how do you stomach all that wreckage without throwing up?

when i was eight, the edges of my favourite dress got caught on the escalator. i didn’t scream. not until my father ripped me away & the metal tore my skin into slivers. something like a rag doll being dragged into a rabbit hole, & i tried to go back for the bits of my dress. my shredded sunflower print. when i went home that day, the sunflowers in the garden had wilted. & i wondered how different things would have been i hadn’t been pulled away. & it hurt more than my skin being in strips. even as a child i never liked to be saved.

it’s funny. how we’ve had to unlearn the smell of singed hair the way other kids unlearned flowerbeds. how we’ve had to outgrow tar on our cheeks the way other kids outgrew overalls. & i remember choking on smoke & burning & burning & burning &—it never stops. every time i close my eyes, my sister is setting fire to our bedroom & i am slamming burnt knuckles to the walls. maybe i’ll never know who she wanted to kill that night.

my first nosebleed looked something like a crime scene. stuck somewhere between too afraid of bleeding out & too badly wanting to. i smudged dried blood on the doorknob of my parents’ room. here lies your daughter, the stain you could never get rid of. sometimes i think about the hatchet under your pillow & how some days you would let me sleep there. i was always hoping it would bury itself in my head. you were too. i think we’ve always wanted me dead.

I need an outfit for a country music concert next month!!

Here is a post I made recently about my go-to outfit for concerts:

I also have these two other posts featuring cowboy boots:

Additionally, here are some other outfit ideas to pair with cowboy boots. I wasn’t sure what you were looking for specifically, so I tried to include a little variety. 

  1. denim shorts (linked the ones I own) + black long sleeve crop top
  2. denim shorts + solid black or white tank + crochet kimono
  3. denim shorts + swing cami 
  4. cream ruffle romper
  5. orange cold shoulder swing dress
  6. mint off shoulder mini dress (under $25)
  7. solid white romper (I own this one!)
  8. show me your mumu paisley swing dress
  9. white distressed jeans (I own these) + yellow ruffle top
  10. skinny jeans + sunflower print top
  11. white denim shorts + graphic tee
  12. white swing shorts (I own these) + orange pom pom off shoulder top
  13. one shoulder bandana print top + white denim shorts
  14. dark wash denim jeans + high neck white tank + statement necklace
  15. ivory off shoulder scallop lace dress 

Here are some outfit ideas from Pinterest:

In general, you can’t go wrong with a solid dress or romper. Denim shorts and jeans are always great options for country concerts as well! If you do not own cowboy boots, you could always go for sandals, booties, or converse!

Let me know if you would like any more ideas :)

So crucify the ego, before it’s far too late
To leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical,
And you will come to find that we are all one mind
Capable of all that’s imagined and all conceivable.
Just let the light touch you
And let the words spill through
And let them pass right through
Bringing out our hope and reason…

Prom au. Just think about it. Lily and James on their senior year going to prom with the rest of the marauders

She’s Thunderstorms.

She waltzes into Mountain View High on the first day of Senior Year. She’s all 5’5, deep red hair, bright green eyes, a thick Californian accent and a sunny personality.

James meets her in detention.

He heard the talk, of a lovely, vibrant girl with constellations of freckles on her shoulders. Beautiful, exposed shoulders that were privy to the attention of Boyce Lewis, who flicked the strap of her sunflower-print sundress.

She gets detention for punching him in the mouth.
