whoa timekeeper

It's Inspiration Monday!

Nora and Megan of Two Birds Boutique chose an outfit to inspire a personal look.

Here's my version of the outfit.
To see how others used the inspiration go to 
 happy birthday, nora bird!

Today's outfit inspiration is:

Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Apparently she grew up in Grapevine, Texas,
which is about 30 minutes from where I live.

(As if you give a rat's...)

Time Keeper
I can't believe how long it's been

My shirt and coat were thrifted.

Time Keeper
I wish I could start over again

I'm too young
To be feeling this way
Yeah I'm wasted as I lie awake
There goes another day

Whoa, Time keeper

Please won't you slow it down tonight

My art Journal page from October 18, 2012 inspired by
Fall In Love 
from Classes Kara Made
Autumn Flavors of my past: 
* homemade pumpkin curry soup
* pumpkin ice cream
* homemade pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
* pumpkin pie
* fresh apples
* sweet potato quesadillas
* spaghetti squash
* chili
* popcorn
* bean hominy casserole

All these things I can no longer eat.
I'm either allergic or they make me sick.

And time continues to pass...

Tell me I'm gonna be, alright
Time Keeper
I thought I'd have it right by now

Time Keeper
Everything's still spinning out
I'm undone

Breaking out of the cage
But before the beast can get away

There goes another day...

So choke the dawn and d@#n the daylight

Time is just an invisible line
Time Keeper
I'm hoping you hear me, tonight...

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals newest album

  1. Oh my gosh, you're allergic to pumpkin pie? That's just about the saddest thing ever! That's rough having food allergies, I do hope there's lots of yummy food that you're able to enjoy on Thanksgiving.
    I love your art book entries, they are always so fun and pretty, you are such a cool chick! And wow, your white coat looks so warm and cozy, I love the color, white always looks so amazing and polished but I can never keep it clean. I really like your take on this Inspiration Monday look, it's lovely!
