Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

So there I was minding my own business when I hear a rustle in the bushes. it sounds like it’s literally right behind me and sure enough it was…my very own beautifully feathered stalker giving me “elevator eyes.” (I felt so cheap violated appreciated.

Now this was really special for me ’cause I have this silly notion theory that peacocks are really ostriches that have finally come into their own and are ready to show the world how spectacular they are.

On a really serious note; I feel incredibly lucky to have stayed calm enough to get this. (Peacocks do not stay still at all ) But then again, maybe it’s Karma. (Oh wait, Karma is a cat) Must be Kismet. Or perhaps serendipity. Yeah, that’s it…
