Sophisticated Sunday

Dress: Forever 21
Tights: Nordstrom
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

I definitely cheated today...I didn't actually wear this(but shhh!).  I've had this dress since Thanksgiving and I've worn it a ton, but I haven't "publicized" it yet.  So here it is!  I saw this dress and I freaked out because I had seen a dress very similar to this online, but it was double the price!  I'm also pretty stoked about my hair today.  I haven't showered and I have had it up in a bun since yesterday, but it turned out so pretty!  These things always seem to happen on a day I don't see anyone...

I'm loving collars lately and I want more things with them!  Collars, collars, collars(: mmmm yes!  xx

It's Getting Lighter

Now that the days are getting longer, I decided to take a walk today.  And at 6:00 it was still light!  Light enough to take pictures even! I'm so excited...probably prematurely excited for summer.  I can't wait(:

But sadly, my camera ran out of battery after two pictures.  I guess it's true: "beggars can't be choosers,". I hope you enjoy! xx

I had a fantastic day after school with my mom and my grandma.  I can't get over how much I love this skirt...soooo comfy!  xx

Good Ol' Fashioned Fun

Now that The Festival is in full swing, I have been heading up to main street for the last two days to make fun of tourists and people watch.  Don't tell me it's rude, because you do it too.  I must say, living in a resort town has an overabundance of perks, but it also comes with downsides.  For instance, no one knows how to drive in the snow.  There were a good seven car crashes today, one of which I witnessed. I mean it's called tourist season, so why can't we shoot 'em?

Anyway, today I went up to main street with my friends Ellie and Lu.  We pretty much froze our little tushies off, but it was all worth it.  And why?...because of the guy you saw in the last two pictures.  No, we did not know him.  I guess when I was taking my Lookbook picture, this guy saw us.  So, he came up to us and started posing with us.  It was quite fantastic.  And this is why I love my town(and even the tourists at times).  There is a week of craziness left, and I am hoping to go up to main street at least one more time.  Maybe I'll see a couple celebrities?

 Lookin' like legit press?  Yeah, I thought so too.


It's Finally Winter!

Hat: Local Shop
Jacket: Nordstrom
Sweater: Ann Taylor
Shorts: Forever 21
Tights: Nordstrom
Boots: Nordstrom

The wait is over.  There is finally some snow on the ground, and I couldn't be more ecstatic! I decided I didn't want to sacrifice warmth today so I wore a wool turtleneck, two pairs of tights, and ski socks.  And no, my feet did NOT stay dry.  When I got home I couldn't feel my feet at all and my shoes were sopping wet.  Not the best feeling in the world by any means!  Thank god I wore that sweater.

Goodnight all! xx

1st Wishlist of 2012

Although Christmas was only a month ago, I'm already starting to catch myself looking at new clothes and getting bored of the ones I have at the moment.  The "beauty" of consumerism.  Anyway, I decided I wanted to make a wishlist.  I usually use Photoshop to edit my photos but I have never put any photos together with it.  I spent about two hours looking for a decent tutorial on how to make a collage, and after looking through a ton of cheesy looking tutorials, I found quite possibly the simplest thing I could find.  NEWS FLASH: making collages on Photoshop is easy as pie(I'll make a tutorial on how to do it soon).  So without further adieu...here are my Photoshopping skills at their finest:

1. Maxi Skirt in Color Block from Asos
2. Retro Peter Pan Collar Apricot Dress from Romwe
3. Retro Low Cut Silver Shoes from Romwe
4. Ankle Dark Green Pleated Skirt from Romwe
5. BDG Cigarette High-Rise Jean(Teal) from Urban Outfitters

Ever since I got my maxi skirt, I've been obsessed.  Honestly, I probably won't get these things at full price because full price is for losers.  Thrifting is the way to go(plus it's an adventure)!  And that was just a snipped of my never ending wishlist.(: xx

Yet Another Lazy Sunday

Sorry for the lack of posting...I have been busy doing nothing!  Well maybe some volleyball and homework, but other than that..nada.  I was very lazy today and decided to sit around and do homework.  I have been overly stressed about my upcoming finals and I am not at all excited to take any one of them!  Oh lordy.  Since I'm not quite in the mood to write, here are some pictures:
 A photo for a school project.."Boo Radley's Scrapbook"

 Taking a break from all that homework...

Goodnight! And I shall be posting a new outfit asap(: xx

Saturday Evening Stroll

And this is what I did this afternoon...

 Sorry about the out-of-focus-ness...I have no patience and didn't want to pose for any more pictures.  Quite typical of moi.

Turtleneck: Secondhand
Belt: Secondhand
Jeans: American Eagle
Boots: Nordstrom

And my fail at making a DIY filter for my camera...well darn:

I know my walls are absolutely horrendous so there is no need to make fun.  Also...I pretty much sat around, watched YouTube videos, and ate with my friend Adam today.  I watched this video about five times.  Every single thing in this video is true...EVERYTHING.  We took down our Christmas tree today.  It's always such a sad thing to do.  But to make it up, Adam, Pais, and I made risotto, salad, and homemade molten lava cake for dinner.  I ate so much today, I might just blow up.

Goodnight all! xx
