here’s to you.

shirt: thrifted // pants: uniqlo // shoes: thrifted Lets first off start with a huge THANK YOU to all those who commented, texted, messaged, and chatted in person with me about my last post. I was happy to have it so well received, and I was impressed with the great conversations that followed, with both men and women. I LOVE intelligent conversation. So I’ve been pretty giddy since. I think if anything, the discussion of feminism is imperative to our society right now. Mormon or not, how women are perceived is important. It took me a lot to finally post that, but I felt it in my bones that it was necessary. I think mostly for my own benefit. To hold me accountable to my beliefs. So thanks for reading along with me. Anyway, as for this post, can we just pretending I’m at the ocean? While we’re at it…let’s […]

Emo Bands, and Relatively Good Hygiene

dress: h&m // leggings: sears (right?!) // shoes: topshop Well I’m still sick, but I’m feeling a bit happier today, probably because I’m feeling productive and that always makes me feel less crummy. I’ve also been listening to a playlist of emo bands I used to listen to in high school nonstop. It has surprisingly but me in a better mood. It may or may not but definitely does include all my favorite oldies: Dashboard Confessional, Brand New, The Used Blink 182. I’ll probably add some Bright Eyes too because you can never have enough angst when it comes to this kind of playlist.  It’s another day of wearing my hair natural, and I’m yet again trying to convince myself to just let my hair do it’s own thing more often because it means I force myself to shower more. Wait was that TMI? what are boundaries? I don’t know this […]

Neutrals are my comfort food.

first off, sorry bout not blogging the rest of my trip. That can be attributed to two things (a) I didn’t really take my camera out as much as i thought i would, I was too preoccupied with getting around and soaking in every aspect of New York that I could. (b) lack of time/energy. I was pooped at the end of every day.I promise to do one more recap post and I also promise it will have some iphone pics. deal with it. As for now, lets talk just do this outfit post in peace mmkay? shirt: f21 // cardigan:gap // pants: h&m // bracelet c/o: red envelope I’m so indecisive these days about color. I’ll get really excited about an outfit and then abruptly decide that it has too much color and find something as neutral as possible. I’m all about classics. Black, white, gold, and brown NEVER […]

Almost Famous Fashion

So I live in house called the “Almost Famous” house, it’s pretty wonderful actually. We call each other sisterwives instead of roommates, and our humor consists of dry sarcasm and calling each other Mother frequently. If that sounds weird, it’s because it is. whatever. Anyway I decided I wanted some of my sisterwives to be in my fashion post today, because I personally think they all looked like stunnahs (and not because they’re wearing a few of my own clothes…) RACHEL // top: van heusen //belt: D.I // skirt: Romy //boots: rampageEMMA // top: vintage // cardigan: gap // skirt:thrifted // shoes: nordstrom BROOKE // jacket: // top: h&m // skirt: jcrew (thrifted) // shoes:  yorkKAITLIN // top: primark // skirt: f 21 // shoes: forever young ^^^Rachel taught us a little about what being a model really means. Oh do I ever love these females.

my favorite dress

^^^ can someone please tell me what my hands are doing here? nice and awkward kids. the way I like it. dress: free people // tights: macys // shoes: shoe carnival This dress and I…. I saw it on the rack (probably) audibly gasped and snatched it up. a free people dress for $30?! it had to fit, it just HAD to. I took it to the fitting room, tried her out for size and well.. lets just say it was love at first fit. I’m smitten with the wide collar, and open back. Being emotionally attached to a piece of clothing is totally normal right? Honestly all I really want to do right now is drink tea, and curl up to a movie that makes me think. preferably cuddling. It could be that it’s wednesday and my To-Do list is annoyingly long, and i’m feeling annoyingly unmotivated. But I […]

visuals you didn’t need

shirt: thrifted // sweater: kookoocachu vintage // pants: f21 // boots: shoe carnival Today has just been one of those days where I feel I can’t be creative, and honestly I just want to shower in chocolate. Okay wait I didn’t think that through before I said that, that would be way too messy, sticky, and probably unsanitary. Sorry you had to visualize that. All I’m trying to say is that I want chocolate, and I want it now.  Give it here Malfoy. Lauren and I went up to Salt Lake this weekend with intentions of doing somethings for school and then we just goofed off, listened to Adore You seventy-two times, took some pictures and shopped instead. It was a great weekend really, and though I’m feeling like I’m playing catch-up, I am beyond thankful for having good people in my life.

making amends

shirt & pants: soel botique // shoes: target my curly hair friends, do you have a complicated relationship with your curls? because mine is incredibly dysfunctional. Somedays like today I’m like “Man I lucked out with these curlz” but most days i’m all like “get rid of yourself” about the whole messy complicated thang happening on the top of my head. I’m trying to mend the relationship though. I think It’s high time we put aside our differences and just let my curls be their own person a little bit more often. thats all folks.

something i’m completely and utterly terrible at.

Alternative Title: Fashion Blogging. shirt: f21 // skirt: target (hand-me-down) // tights: UO // shoes: target // coat: vintage There are some fashion bloggers who know how to work it, they know how to pose, where to look, how to smile with their eyes, and they look incredible. Then there’s me… I hand the camera to my dear sweet Brookie, and give her the impossible task of making me look relatively normal. Sometimes we’ ll have like 5 useable photos out of 903175742590 (well all the photos are great because Brooke’s skills are dynamite, it’s my face/body that won’t cooperate). Well today I decided yolo and posted some of my ridiculousness too, because when did we decided we have to take life seriously?

Smile me Awkward… Pretty Girls (a love story)

Saturday morning, I lay content in my bed. I  was waking up to snuggling with my fellow blogger friend Lauren (from awkward girls)  in my bed, it was a good one. I believe the first words I said that morning were “Lauren, you’re the first person that I met on the internet that i’ve slept with…” or maybe “Excellent….Egggsellent…Egg…salad.” but actually the second one we somehow did in unison…unplanned. it’s fine. I just shattered all illusions of me being a well-adjusted human being. whutevah, moving on. Lauren and I have been wanting to do an outfit post that was kinda rocker/gothic/chic for a while, but mostly we wanted an excuse for dark lipstick because…duh but also because yolo and stuff. here are some pictures of our lovely fashion blogger adventure on a surprisingly not-that-cold day. shirt:banana repulic // necklace: c/o Loopsway // pants: h&m // shoes: dolce vita via nordstrom the […]
