Festival cool.

Happy Summer friends!  As a teacher, my summer break just started so you MAY be seeing a bit more of me for the next couple of months…

This adorable outfit was one of the FLF sale items and I couldn’t help but snatch it up!  I just love the top with it’s bustier detailing and the sweet little floral print on the top as well as the flirty little skirt.  This get up just felt so “festival cool” to me, so I accessorized it to be a bit hip and bohemian, although the outfit definitely exudes a sexy vibe which can’t be ignored!

Season’s Greetings my friends!  I cannot believe my last post was in July!  This past week I’ve been getting the familiar SL “itch” again and decided to hop in-world today during a rare day off to catch up on things.  I knew for sure I wanted to check out the SL Christmas Expo before it closes, and I made it just in the nick of time!  This a mega event that raises funds for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL), which is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.  I was on the hunt for something wintry, and found just the thing.  This lovely coat by M&M Style nearly jumped off the hanger at me when I saw it.  It has a lovely Victorian feel to it, but also seemed perfect to me for a good old fashioned pagan Yule celebration, which is how I will personally be celebrating the winter season.  The addition of some vintage antlers made me feel like the magical lady of the woods, the consort to the Horned God which rules over the Winter Solstice.  If you watch closely at dawn on the morn of Yule, you too may catch a glimpse of her, treading silently and serenely through the forest she calls Home.  Season’s Greetings and Merry Yule to my fellow Pagan folk!

Coat:  M&M Style “Fantasy Princess Long Winter Coat” with Blonde Hair (hair in various colors included).  Available through 12/14 at the SL Christmas Expo

Boho_full Boho_face

Check out this super cute outfit!  The top and shorts are available separately for only 50L each as part of Fifty Linden Fridays.  I’m not sure if the designers planned it or not, but to me they fit together perfectly.  I love the detail of the unbuttoned shorts showing a sexy peek of bikini.  The pattern on the vest inspired me to rock a boho-look with some natural jewelery and a big floppy, tasseled tote bag.  There is still time to get your 50L treasures today!
