Outfit Post: Prim & Punk

Recently, I found an adorably ugly dress with a tonne of floral print at a thrift store and have been wearing it ever since. It’s kitschy (resembling eighties patterns) print goes surprisingly well with everything! I’ve been meaning to get a nice little floral dress to punk up and this was certainly the dress.

Guess who got a new pin! I love Kiwis.

Just last night I ordered a few more pins from a lovely Etsy store that I hope to be reviewing soon. It’s a simple way to build some interest in plain outfits and show some personality!

Winged eyeliner has definitely been a go to for me lately. It’s so simple and if it’s only for say, a doctors appointment (like this outfit was – yes, I have a huge bandage under that sleeve!) it doesn’t need primer.

Beware the bitch-face. I never smile, or talk very much when Coen is away (not to say I’m not happy!). He had to leave for a few weeks for his sisters wedding. In the meantime I’ve been enjoying all the things he hates: loud music, horror movies (well, bad ones) and lots of spinach!

What little things do you like to enjoy when you have the house to yourself? I, myself, love to cook to really loud music!

    My Rabbit (his nickname) usually takes full control over the comfy chair in our living room and hogs the xbox so I usually sprawl across it and play video games when he is not home. Also I turn the house into a meat locker because he detests the cold and I detest heat. hehe

    The dress is great, and so is the jacket!

    Martin is NEVER not home unless he's out with me, so I don't get to play by myself anymore unless I go somewhere else and he stays home. 🙁

    Absolutely listen to music I love and the other hate or not "his" kind of music.
    The dress is very 80's it's perfect with the punk elements.

    I almost always have the house to myself– I'm a housewife!
    I usually sew and watch copious amounts of movies on Netflix… or dance wildly to my loud music lol.

    Since our Government shutdown, my hubby has been home all day everyday so far… I haven't done much of the above, except sewing.

    Yeah, I have always liked the idea of an 80s/ 90s looking floral dress with a leather jacket!

    I like the quiet so I can write, but I get lonely too. At least I have a birdy for company, although at the moment, we are both home all the time. I also sometimes dance around or sing to music, like Switchblade Symphony, Agnes Obel and Loreena McKennit, sometimes my bird tweets along. I also watch movies.
