combat baby.

And now, a smorgasbord (I apparently spelled that wrong on the first try. Thank you spellcheck). Outfit post plus links I like/find inspiring. But first! I was recently accepted to Independent Fashion Bloggers and have already made a ton of friends, many of whom are now followers! So thank you all! I feel quite special :) And thank you all for all the comments! It really makes my day. 

This is actually this past Wednesday's outfit, not today's. And yesterday's was boring (seriously; I went running with my Oxford roomie/BFF & to the library), so I didn't even bother taking pictures.

Scarf: no idea, had it for years
Necklace: Smithsonian Natural History Museum, of all places (it's a little bunny, if you can't see)
Bow top: thrifted
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Tights: who knows
Boots: the usual combat boots from Oxford
Flower stud earrings: Nomsa
Bird ring: Annie Creamcheese in DC
Flower ring: Nomsa
Nomsa makes the prettiest jewelry. Check out her shop!

Now, a few links to share:

» Sally of Already Pretty tackles the issue of shopping pitfalls. I loved reading this because I find myself doing these things all the time. And I have a pretty bad online shopping addiction, so when something is on sale I have to really stop and ask myself, "Do I really need this?" And sometimes it works. 
» On a similar note, check out my fellow ModSquader and DC girl Katie's blog, Today I Want. Apparently her online shopping addiction is as bad as mine!
» Today only, when you shop online at Forever 21, 100% of the proceeds will go to help Japan! I can't think of a better reason to give your wallet a squeeze. 
» Another fellow ModSquader, Amber Rose, wrote a wonderful post about friendships gone awry. I can really identify, and I think it's worth a read. 
» I lovelovelove Miss James of Bleubird Vintage's outfit today! It's so simple and chic! Now if I could make myself wear less than two to five necklaces at a time...

That's it for today, lovelies! Have a fantastic weekend :)
