Flower Child

Vintage dress, thrifted flats, braided hair (by Tessa).

I have those days when I wish I had:
toned arms
straighter teeth
more curves
smaller feet
bigger hair
curly hair!
no, long, feminine waves
red hair black hair rainbow hair
ears that didn’t stick out

or I wish I was:
teeny tiny and petite
eff that, supermodel tall

I am a girl, after all, and a fickle one at that. We always want whatever we don’t have, right? I’m pretty happy with my looks, and wouldn’t change anything dramatically, but there’s always something I want to tweak a bit.

Yesterday was not one of those days. Yesterday, I was completely content in my own skin. No particular reason; sometimes it just happens that way. Tessa braided my hair, I put on a vintage dress, and I played with cute little animals all day long, in sticky 95 degree heat. I even got to see a tiny baby Marmoset and a baby Kinkajou, when we went to buy rat food for Bubbles and Socks, Tessa’s hairless rats.

Naturally, I documented my heightened confidence with several pictures. I was feeling good, can’t you tell?

I hope you all had lovely days, as well.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

p.s. Stay tuned for another giveaway!

  1. I'm very good at hiding how much my ears stick out:) I loosen up my hair around my ears, so you don't notice how much they protrude. They aren't that bad; they just look like elf ears!

  2. You're right, we all have something we'd like to change about ourselves. For what it's worth though, I think you're absolutely beautiful, all doll-like =)

  3. That dress is gorgeous, and your hair looks beautiful that way!

    I think every woman has days where they feel completely dissatisfied with their looks, no matter how beautiful they are. I'm glad to hear your confidence got better after these photos 🙂

  4. i hear ya…. i have those days a lot. in fact i thought i wanted rainbow hair…well maybe not rainbow rainbow, but i added some chunks of color in some places and then i didn't like it. on me… i would like it on someone else. so i died it back to one color last night. now i think it's boring! haha…. i can certainly scrutinized all sorts of other things about me too. but after i do that i wonder why i can't just be grateful. and stop comparing myself to some ideal. but we all do it…alas we are human! anyway, you are gorgeous and very unique looking. thanks for all the fun pics to look at!
