ART_"My Morning Jacket" Skate Deck

My Morning Jacket I am back with another skateboard deck! Suprisingly, this is the first band tribute deck I have ever done. Gladly though, it won't be the last. I am looking forward to working with this customer again for a board of another of her favorite artists. I hadn't heard of My Morning Jacket and their logos before, but as I worked on this a lot of my friends told me that they liked the music--so that was cool!

I incorporated some of the band's art, the owl and bear, to create this vertically oriented board. The leaves were part of the bear art, but I decided to tie them in with the owl to give it a nice flow. The banner and freehand lettering was my favorite part to do, and has got me inspired to get better at lettering from memory. I think I'll work on that over spring break. By the way, I was working with this and this as reference images.

DSC_1302 Tonight I went to the mall with friends to have dinner and finish up my holiday shopping (I'm done!) I haven't worn this amazing skull blouse in a while and got so many compliments on it so I was glad I did! To spice up the all black outfit, I matched my lipstick to this clutch (which I thought was clever of me). I picked up this clutch at Buffalo Exchange a while back and have never found much to wear it with, but I'm liking the pop of color it adds to my outfits now!

Today's rainy day called for lots of layering, but I still felt like wearing a dress so I added these new oxblood tights to my outfit, and topped off the look with my DIY crocheted beanie to add another pop of the on-trend color to my outfit! I'm also wearing 2 pieces that I scored at the Rose Bowl Flea Market (the vest and boots) and two items that I've had in my closet forever (the dress and grey hoodie).

I'm also kind of in the mood to include a song to compliment this outfit post. Today I'm listening to "Carry On" by fun. Listen and watch the (amazing) video here.

I can't believe this is my 50th outfit of the day post! Thanks so much for reading, and remember to follow along with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if you haven't yet!

Part of the fun of coming home from college is getting to rummage around in my closet and see what kinds of things I left behind during my last move. This heart purse is definitely a statement piece, and is from one of the designer collections from Target years ago!
