(Another) Gray Day at Longwood Gardens

On a rare foggy & 50 degree January day, I went to Longwood Gardens. I have a membership to the gardens so I like to go as often as possible.

Independent Designer Spotlight: Bright Comets Apparel

I’ll admit it: I’m a t-shirt fiend. I love t-shirts and wear them as much as possible. They’re so versatile! I’m drawn to graphic tees that are kind of spooky and esoteric, so when I saw this cool death’s head moth tee, I knew it would fit into my wardrobe just fine.
