the mean blues

dress I made, sunglasses Hamilton Island, backpack from ebay, boyfriends necklace

I have the traveling blues, and trying to fill the time. I'm jobless and penniless and living off the memories.

when the wind blows

I adore the simplicity of this outfit, the slightly loose fitting jean with the oh-so-white long sleeve t-shirt with its scoop neck and the way it hangs off the shoulder given a glimpse of the collarbone. How the sleeves are a couple of inches too long, so that they cover part of the hand giving that air of naivety. The chunky black strap of her watch and the way her single braid falls in her face. It reminds me that a simple white t-shirt with classic blue jeans can be the most stylish outfit of all.

We are all in the gutter but some of us are staring up at the stars

It has been 2 weeks and 2 days since I got home to London. It's a strange feeling coming home after being away, I feel like in the five months I have been gone everything and nothing has changed. Australia seems like a lifetime ago, a distant memory of somebody else's tale. A dream that I'm trying to hold onto but it slips away as the day goes on. The last week I was in Australia after we had booked our flight home, I tried to remember everything, the way everything looked and smelt and sounded, the feel of the sun on my back. I went over and over all my memories trying to store it all in my brain. When I was there I made all these promises to myself, I had felt like I had changed. But I guess the more things change the more things stay the same.
