As you all already know, I’ve always been fascinated by all things military – especially, the Navy. Which is funny, because in all actuality, I’m terrified of water (in the sense of, I won’t get into swimming pools, let alone water I can’t see through, like lakes or the ocean!)
But fascination knows no barriers like fear. Which is why I’ll always be enchanted by naval ships and the like – and Navy-inspired things, like this beautiful anchor brooch from The Tote Trove! It was the perfect photo opportunity to take a picture with my music-box-sailor-man, which plays Anchors Aweigh. With his duffle bag packed and slung over his shoulder, he looks ready to set sail on the sparkling sun-kissed sea, adventures awaiting, destination unknown. Hawaii? Okinawa? Who knows!
I love this striped outfit with the floral bow, because I look like I could be a quirky Disney channel character. 💖💛 Yussssssss!
The next outfit was really comfortable with an oversized striped shirt over a floral skirt, and to keep warm, opaque skin tone tights. I wore my Kuromi hair clips and floral-print creeper shoes from Dolls Kill! ❤️ Felt very punk rock!!! 🎸
I wore this one on my coffee outing, and when I went to order my (free!) drink since I had accumulated enough bonus stars for a reward, I ordered my usual grande iced mocha.
“Are you sure you don’t want to make it a size larger since it’s free?” the barista asked.
“Oooh, actually maybe I will,” I pondered, it being the biggest decision I’ve had to make in a long time. I adjusted my laptop bag on my shoulder. “How many espresso shots are in it? Not sure how many are in my regular grandes…”
“Three shots in a venti,” she replied, perkily. “Is that okay?”
“Yes, I normally don’t order a venti – I’m excited!” I answered back.
What can I say, folks. Ordering a venti iced mocha is a major adventure for me to get excited about, and dang, was it gooooood! I sat in a little window-side corner of the Starbucks, typing away on my laptop and happily sipping my venti drink that felt like it was almost as big as I am. It’s the little things.
See ya next time!!! ⚓️💖🎸✨
