After some pretty gnarly delays yesterday, I've finally arrived in Alabama. The weather kept me stranded at the airport for oh, about 13 hours or so. Thanks Mother Nature! I seriously could have driven and gotten there sooner. Well, at least that's all behind me now.

With all the airport-sitting-around-boredness I don't have any photos of the trip to show you so far. Instead I'll share the last photos I took while I was still in Lancaster. These were taken on yet another scorcher and I was trying to find a way to beat the heat.

Welcome to Alabama! It's hot as hell here, isn't it? ;) hehehe. Beautiful pictures! I do love the one of you hiding in the.. whatever those things are. n____n and those shorts are amazing!

That outfit is perfect in every way! I hope your trip gets more lively soon :)

I love the corset covers you wear! They look so lovely how you style them. I can't help wonder wonder what a Victorian lady would think of us wearing them as outer wear with shorts of all things. :)

Stunning outfit... I love the corset cover blouse in particular (the lace looks ace in juxtaposition with your tattoo). Hope you're staying cool! The heat wave in London has just broken with a lovely misty rain...

Oh! This looks so comfy and cute. I've been on the hunt for a blouse like that to wear with high-waisted bottoms.
