Autumn Vintage & How Many Pixels To Mars?

Ahh, it's finally cold enough in Sydney to start layering up! This is definitely my favourite kind of climate - cool, sunny days where you can comfortably wear tights and a cropped sweater over a long vintage dress or skirt. Basically everything that's in this outfit is thrifted for a few dollars, which makes me really happy. Speaking of which, there's a thrift store only 50m down the road from my new place. I have somehow successfully restrained myself from going and spending all of my rent money there so far, but I don't know how long that is going to last... (It's basically the biggest tease ever).

You guys know I love attempting to make you feel all tiny and insignificant ;) but seriously, I really do love projects like the Scale of the Universe and How Big Is Space, that cleverly attempt to show you how big the world around us really is. Call me weird, but I find it kind of reassuring, rather than daunting, thinking about how small I am and how incomprehensibly huge the universe is. Because how can you be stressed out about an assignment deadline or people at work when the universe is just so, so, so much bigger than you (and all your problems) are?
So anyway, this is another cool example of that kind of project which I found the other day - if you set Earth to 100 computer pixels wide, how many pixels away is Mars (our closest planetary neighbour)?
The website that will answer that question for you, Distance To Mars, is here.

  10. This pixel representation of distance is so eloquent for anyone who understands pixels and interstellar distances, and is still mindblowing.

    This is a great outfit, while I bet the collar is the big standout that people would really notice, I think my eye is most drawn to how the hem of the skirt and those flats with the white leggings pull my eye.
