Inspired by It: Zooey Deschanel

I loveeee Zooey Deschanel. You may even catch me in the mirror holding my hair on the top of my head deciding whether some straight across bangs would suite me or not. Don't worry, I know that with my curly hair I will wind up looking more like a cockatoo than a stylish young lady. Besides her amazing bangs I am constantly in awe of her style. She is always in vintage dresses and adorable tights, and even has the best shoes. I guess you can call her one of my style inspirations. I know what you are thinking, "Real original Nicole, every semi Indie girl with a pair of floral tights and a Death Cab for Cutie album says the same thing." And I guess I have to say you are probably right. Oh well, I don't mind being one of the crowd on this one...

Want It: Floral Boots

I have wanted a pair of Doc Martens for a while. I especially love their floral one's because it is such a sweet, cute little print on a big bad work boot. I don't know why, but I just love the combo. I also think they look really cute with dresses and skirts, especially with a cute pair of tights tucked in them. I know this sounds silly, but I have always wanted to wear them with those cute, lacy little girl socks peeking out, how adorable would that be?!! Anyways, they are my new major want hopefully I will be able to afford them some time soon...

Hair Cut

I got my hair cut!! This may not be very monumental or look like a big change but I am so glad I did it! I always have this fear that the hairdresser is going to chop 5 inches off so I sometimes put off going. I am trying to grow it out, so you can see why this is so scary. Anyways, I went to a brand new hairdresser and I love her to death! She did a great job and is really fun to talk to. And if you are a girl you know just how hard this combo is to find! So here are the new locks (and I loveee that she blew it out, no matter what, I will always like my hair straight better)...

Today I will leave you with my favorite Passion Pit song (going to see them in a week!!!!!!)...

Friday Finds #2

Alright guys here is my second Friday Finds Post. I was thinking about maybe having themes to these posts instead of haphazard choices, but I don't know. Maybe even some will all be one color. We'll see how it goes. In other news, Gabby and I will have another very fun adventure in the near future. This time it will be antiquing! So check back soon i promise you will love it!!

1. Sun Hats

I have decided I love sun hats! Why did these ever go out of style?? I am taking this acne medication that makes it so I really shouldn't be in the sun too much so I am thinking I am going to grab myself one of these. And I do not plan on looking like and old lady either. Who says you can't wear a sun hat and still look hot?

2. DIY Handkerchief Artwork

What a cute idea! Your old handkerchiefs can take on a whole knew life, on your wall! If you don't have any of your own handkerchiefs you can easily pick some up at your local thrift store. At an average of three bucks a pop you can create this wall art without breaking the bank.

3. Salvation Mountain

Salvation mountain is located in California not far outside Slab City. It is an art installation made of adobe, straw, and tons of paint. Leonard Knight created this art piece to show that God loves everyone. I love the colors and the message!! I really want to take photos here one day, yet another place to add to the list!

4. Carnival Kids Room

Can you say adorable?! I love this room! One of my favorite places in the world has to be the fair/carnival. It is colorful, fun, and downright awesome! I also loveeee kids rooms. I feel like it is much easier to be creative and fun with their rooms.

5. Love Meter Necklace

He loves me... He loves me not... How cute! I love this necklace! It's cute, whimsical and original. I feel like it would match some of my outfits really well... except I do NOT need to spend anymore money! Why does this have to be so tempting...

6. Blue Kite Photo

Sooo I may be partial because I know these guys, but I LOVE their photos! Juliet and Michael are a (super cute) couple who take awesome photos together. They are so creative and do amazing work! Love you Juliet!!

7. DIY Teacup Bird Feeder

Kaelah Bee is a super cute girl with a super cute DIY. How adorable is this?! Not only is it a feeder, the cup is also a little bird bath. Once I get my own house I will be putting one of these in the yard for sure.

8. Floral Sneakers

I don't wear sneakers that often but these are just too cute to pass up. They are also super cheap, $13 is deff. a steal!! Right now they are out of my size, fingers crossed they get more back in stock!

9. Red Velvet Dress Shop

Vintage dresses galore! Elsie has put some precious vintage dresses for sale in her shop. I love that she has altered some of the longer ones too. I constantly find dresses at the thrift store that are too long and would look cute with just a little tweaking. Here she has done all the work for you!

10. Banner Pillow

As you can tell from my Brown Owl Banner i am a sucker for these little triangle banners. I love them whether they are used in illustration, decorations for a party, or even on a cute little pillow. This pillow is deff. high on the cuteness scale! Love it!

Hope you loved it! Now I'm off to get my hair cut, pics to come!
