______I'm a hypocrite for wearing this shirt, mainly because a) I tend to make more work for myself than what's necessary and because b) I don't consider myself much of a traveller.  I'm pretty much your standard homing pigeon, and will refuse to relocate myself unless my entire household tags along.  Mind, I do like to go places to take pictures and explore and such... but only if I know my parents and brother aren't too far away!  Yep, I'mma mega weenie.

______Anyway, this is the new purse that I received for my birthday!  It's rather shapeless looking here since it's only carrying my wallet, phone, and keys, but it normally fits my DSLR camera ever so perfectly.  It's quite floppy and easy to set down on things--it doesn't topple over, it just kind of sinks into itself like a fat cat does into a couch... so in other words, it's perfect.

T-shirt: Modcloth, birthday pressie!
Shorts: Charlotte Russe
Purse: Ralph Lauren, birthday pressie!
Booties: Charlotte Russe
Large gold bangle: Lulu*s
Mood ring: some thrift store (note: this mood ring is a LIAR because it has been telling me all day that I've been feeling passionate, when in reality I have not had any of these so-called "passionate" feels)

I love what your t-shirt says!! I'm a home girl too, I am much happier staying at home, curling up on my cauch, and watching a rented movie than actually going out anywhere... hehe. Your new birthday bag looks great btw!


Well... said...

Haha, passionate Ali ;)
Maybe it's telling you how you feel about the bag! Because I am seriously loving it. Its so perfect. What a great birthday gift!
And your outfit? I want to steal that shirt. No joke, it's got a good statement message to it! I happen to love traveling and usually procrastinate so much haha, so I'm going to have to hunt this tee down.
And you know I'm going to comment on those red boots...I'm obsessed with those. They always look so amazing on you :) You should do an outfit remix post or something with them!
Anyway, thanks for the comment again ;) Haha, idk, we'll see, but I think we're definitely going to be entering into a new chapter here...

I love the red boots (I say this like every time you wear them!) and it goes great with the tee. I like travelling too but I have never been away from my home for more than a month. And I love your new purse, floppy purses are the best!

No truer words were ever spoken, err, printed on to a tee shirt.

and I know what it's like to be a homebody, but when you've got a companion, traveling is quite wonderful.
