{Photos by my dad; wearing Free People dress, DIY floral crown}

You can't say no to parents. They raised you. They feed you and do your laundry when you're home. So when I'm forced to walk around box stores for an extended period of time with them, I wear weird shit.

Yesterday I made a point of walking around the stores with my dad in my flower crown and a long cape so people would stare at us. It makes my dad feel awkward so he would leave quickly instead of ho-huming on whether he should buy the 6 plug multi plug adapter or the 4 plug multi plug adapter and then asking me if teeth whitening works and whether he should try it and then stare at a row of chicken breasts wondering what he should make for dinner.
It's a passive rebellion without having to confront my parents that I rather stay home in my underwear watching Netflix. And having tons of 'abnormal' clothes, I'm damn good at it.


  1. Haha! You are so funny, I do the same thing. That outfit is PERFECT, as are these photos. Hope your New Year is filled with light and love!

  2. That makes me think I should just wear weird shit so my parents will think twice when they take us out. Haha.

  3. Ha ha ha I do that rebellion act too- my mum hates it :)
    You look great I love the dress x

  4. I love this dress, it looks so great on you... very pretty :)

    Haha... about being rebellious... we all are in a way :)

  5. That is a hilarious solution to getting your parents to leave a store so you can go home! Also, I don't find this outfit weird at all (does that make me weird?). The dress is gorgeous and I love the flower crown!


  6. I think my own parents don't know what to make of me. My dad though, isn't fazed by awkwardness/weirdness. He's a very quirky man himself. But my mom just talks through the awkwardness sometimes, and she just raises her voice as the tension mounts. Ah well.. You should make a tutorial on how to make those flower crowns! All of yours are just so gorgeous :) x

  7. Hehe, nice subtle way to rebel. I love it!
    This floral crown with the dark princess dress on the beach makes for a lovely set of photos!

  10. Amazing photos!!! Have a fun NYE!

  11. beautiful pictures as always, and wonderful wreath! happy new year!

  12. While I am likely older than your dad, I thinking hanging around in pretty much nothing, and binging on Netflix sounds pretty fabulous. He, however, is great with the camera, and you are a fabulous subject with quiet beauty and flower crown.
    Hang in there, it will get less complicated.
    Happy 2014! Imbibe!!
