Long Time No Post.

Clearly as you can see I'm not updating regularly anymore. I just don't have the time. Poops.



A Few (More Like Two), Outfits.

blue plaid flannel: rummage sale
grey circle scarf: target
black bandage skirt w/ shiny paneling: h&m
gold gladiator sandals: marshall's
gold hoop earrings: claire's

black zip blazer: grandma
white tee: BDG (via uncle mike)
black leggings: target
blue pointy toe flats (not shown): target
pink & white cheetah print scarf: banana republic

I feel lame for not updating regularly, but school has been taking up a lot more time than I expected. I'm starting to balance everything out; hopefully that will result in more time to post. Sorry that I don't have any recent outfit pictures, my phone is broken. The new one should be coming in the mail on Monday. Let's hope for that.


And So It Begins.

Surprisingly, I stuck to my planned outfit (see last post), but I did change a few things - the shirt, bracelet, and shoes.

Junior year is officially underway. I started school Tuesday, and basically hit the ground running. This year I'm taking: AP Writing, AP US History, Honors Chemistry, Pre-Calc, Women's Vocal Chamber & Latin IV. I was nervous the whole summer about starting school(especially because of my APs), but honestly my classes really aren't that bad. It's just a lot of work...a TON of work but I'll manage.


What To Wear.

Possible outfit for the first day of classes (September 8th) a.k.a: the "real" first day of school.

black faux leather motocycle vest: target
white v-neck: american apparel
blue & black bandage skirt: h&m
black & gold belt: forever 21
gold hoop earrings: claire's
pink/black/silver magnet bead bracelet: grandma
gold pendant necklace: forever21
not really sure on shoes, suggestions?

First day of school begins in a few hours, it should be...interesting. I didn't work at orientation this year so I don't know the new kids quite yet. We're going on a trip to some state park, so it should be good, hopefully.


Lazy Saturday;

Hmm, not much happened today. I went to The Cheesecake Factory (amazing food - I love the fried macaroni balls), the mall, and Target. I'm currently broke so I didn't buy ANYTHING, there's always next time though.

*I wore my shirt untucked while I was out but I saw the belt at home and figured I'd try tucking in*

black & white buffalo plaid shirt: old navy
light wash dollhouse denim shorts: kohls
gold gladiator sandals: marshalls
printed scarf: banana republic
medium brown belt: no idea.
bracelets: grandpa
gold pendant necklace: forever 21
black & gold rose earrings: forever 21

Hey There :)

Hello, hello, hello. I know I've been a terrible blogger lately but July & August have been super hectic. Between work, shopping, reading, and trying to make time with friends/family, updating hasn't been one of my top priorities! I'm back now though, and that's all that matters, emirite?

Although I've been gone, I have been keeping up with outfit pictures even though I generally haven't been wearing anything substantial - my work uniform consisted of my 'staff' tee shirt, shorts, sandals, and assorted accessories. For example, my outfit for the last day of work:

work tee shirt: from the boss
black nike dry-fit spandex: dick's sporting goods
black patent sandals: target
pink & white animal print scarf (tied into a bow): banana republic
stack of bracelets: grandpa
heart pendant necklace: forever 21
large gold hoop earrings: claire's
flat-top shades: wetseal

The last day we had a pirate themed carnival so I figured wearing hoop earrings and a scarf would be appropriate. On a whim, I tied the scarf off into a bow and it turned out looking really great. It's cute but not too "cutesy" if you know what I mean.

Next up is one outfit worn in 3 different situations. I'm usually not one to do that but I just love this particular outfit THAT much.


* Party honoring my mother's best friend adopting her son *

teal cardigan: old navy
grey & white animal print romper: H&M
black patent sandals (not shown): target

* A day in the city with Grandma - included "Models As A Muse" exhibit at The MET, walking through Central Park & various other parts of the Upper West Side, eating at Saigon Grill (90th & Amsterdam on the Upper West Side, check it!), and taking a nap before Mommy Dearest came & got me. *

Finally, I have yesterday's & today's outfits. Sunday I went into Queens to see my cousins and take my younger brother back home to Dirty Jerz; the day was hot but relaxing. Today was my first of four days of SAT Prep. The classes themselves aren't bad; I wasn't all to thrilled to be back at school just yet.
