15 and elf ears

Jacket: Wet Seal, Shirt: Target, Scarf: H&M, Skirt: Ny&co, Tights: Old Navy, Boots: Target

All my pictures from day 15 were majorly flawed. I spilled coffee on my skirt right before we went out to take these and there was still a wet spot that showed up in almost every one. Thanks to photoshop and strategic jacket placement, I was able to salvage these two. The closeups were just as bad- they were a hodgepodge of lazy eyes, elf ears and crooked smiles. Oh well: you win some and lose some, right?
They tried to recruit me for Lord of the Rings

Speaking of elf ears- It's sort of a running joke when Mr.Pbr and I are taking pictures. He'll stop before shooting and say "your ear's sticking out" and I'll adjust my hair to cover the protrusion and we'll continue. I hated my ears when I was growing up. Kids at school called me Dumbo or sang the Delta theme song as I passed by ("we love to fly and it shows"). I can even recall a couple of nights when I taped them to my head before I went to sleep hoping they'd stop sticking out so much. I embrace them now for the most part because they're part of what makes me unique. A few months ago at a party a girl walked up to me and said "you look just like Joanna Newsom." I had no idea who Joanna Newsom was so when I got home that night, Mr.Pbr and I googled her and both marveled over the fact that I looked NOTHING like this girl. That is, until we came across this picture. Meet my ear twin:

That's right. Joanna Newsom and I share the same elf father.


  1. I love the yellow jacket, and the entire outfit! and I can totally see the resemblance between you and joanna newsom... but I think it's just totally the hair.

    Kids are so mean, aren't they? I remember making fun of classmates' appearances when I was young, and I totally regret it now. Makes me feel terrible inside, but I didn't know any better when I was that age.

    ps. I think your ears are super cute! :)

  2. haha, I totally thought you looked like Joanna Newsom too! But I think it's the bangs that make the similarity:)

  3. Yeah, you look like Joanna Newsom, and she looks like Emily Browning on that last photo. There are a lot of options you can choose for those sticking-out ears of yours. Your stylish long hair does the trick to hide 'em.
