Back (Maybe?).

Because it's now finally summertime, I'm heavily considering coming back to blog regularly again. Just to give a quick update: I've graduated from high school - my "big present" was a Macbook; I'm completely in love with, especially PHOTOBOOTH, I'm forsure going to Emory University in the fall, I start working at camp next Monday, and today I did a group interview for Urban Outfitters - I think it went really well! 

Anyway, here's one outfit to keep y'all enticed...

crop top - h&m/printed high waist shorts - thrifted/rose earrings - charlotte russe/shark tooth necklace - f21/blue sandals (not shown) - target



I haven't been compelled or inspired to be post...or to even keep up with my outfits for that matter. So basically for now, I'm taking a break from this blog. Catch me on tumblr though.

Today (well, yesterday now) was probably the best out of my whole week. First of all, it was a dress down day; I hate the dress code so it was a nice break. It was held in honor to 1. get more tissues because apparently the school is running out & 2. to rile everyone up for the inter-grade basketball competition...yes, instead of pep rallies, we have dress down days. 

Anyway, the "Spring Ballin" competition was supposed to be seniors + sophomores vs. juniors + freshman, but because only a few juniors showed up it ended up being the seniors vs. everyone else. We had a 20+ point lead against the underclassmen, which was great but we got rocked by the faculty. It was pretty embarrassing but a ton of fun. It was just really nice to see how well the seniors could get along. 

Sorry the pictures aren't too fantabulous, my brother & photographer, Nigel is sick...I didn't want to have to bother him unless it was absolutely necessary. 

Also, a quick college update: I've been accepted to University of Pittsburgh, Drew University, UMass Amherst, Emory University, and Fordham University. As of right now, I'm 5 for 5 and waiting to hear back from Columbia, UPenn, and Harvard. Ugh, it's so nice to know that this long, pain-staking college journey is almost at it's end and that I have plenty of options.


Spring Break Mini-Haul.

 Yes, yes, I know. I'm lame and I haven't posted in a million years. In my defense, second semester senior-dom isn't as worry-free as I first presumed it would be. Yes, homework has died down quite a bit but I've had a plethora of extracurriculars to handle. Now that I'm done with most of my major activities and about to head back to school after a wonderful two weeks of spring break, expect more posts. I promise, promise, promise that I'll do my best to post regularly; let's try for 3 times a week. Sound fair?

Anyway, thought you readers would like to see some of my Spring Break finds:

 dress & jewelry - forever 21/wallet & belt - urban outfitters

 I've already started wearing the jewelry/belt and using the wallet but saving the dress for one of the end of the many end of the year ceremonies. It looks surprisingly spectacular with a pair of platform pumps...trust me, I tried it out. 

I bought another dress & a shirt as well...I don't have any decent pictures of them at the moment, but I'm likely to wear them this week so you'll all see soon.

These babies are the shoes I plan to wear for Prom this year. I bought them for such an amazing deal, only $29! I've never built an outfit around shoes before but as soon as I saw them I felt it was necessary. I've already bought my dress, but I'm waiting for another to come back; the one I originally ordered was too big. 


Expanding the Collection.

Target Combat Boots, Deena & Ozzy (Urban Outfitters) Sparkly Oxfords

New additions to my shoe collection. As of now, I've gotten seven new pairs of shoes since Christmas. Almost every single pair was bought on sale. Life is grand.


Welcome to the Good Life.

draped sweater - h&m/leopard bandage skirt - h&m/tights - target/buckled boots - dolce vita for target/earrings - f21/circle scarf - h&m

Today was the last day of the first semester! Basically, classes were spent going over exams...well, not for me; I ended up only getting my AP Lit exam back. Some of my teachers haven't finished grading & others have to wait on people doing make up exams. No worries though, I'm sure I did fine. After school I got Starbucks & pizza with the other basketball managers before a game with one of our really big rivals. Thankfully, we won so we beat them TWICE this season. So epic.

Anyway, beginning tomorrow I'll be a worry-free second semester senior. This will be the first time in my life that I will have the chance to learn for the sake of it. No pressure about advancing to the next class or worrying about what college will choose me...they'll make their decisions based upon my first semester.  Essentially, I'll be living the good life. Ugh, cannot wait for this.


Shoe Fiend.

black & grey suede platforms - f21/black ankle boots & black studded oxfords - dolce vita for target/bronze oxfords - kohl's

These are all the shoes I've gotten since Christmas. So at this point in time I'm at about 40+ pairs...even though I ususally wear the same 5 or 6. I guess you could say I'm a little obsessed.


Back To School: 2011 Edition

urban top/target skirt/scarf from grammie/f21 earrings/target tights/h&m wedges

Wore this the first day back at school after  an amazing 2+ week break, filled with basketball games, relaxing, finishing college applications, and a very interesting New Year's Party. I got a demerit for my skirt & I must say, it was totally deserved and totally worth it. Everyone thought I had cut my hair, but no. It's in a side braid & hidden all up in the scarf. The day  itself wasn't too bad;  even though I miss being on break terribly, I don't completely hate being back at school.

P.S. It's absolutely obvious that I have an obsession with making kissy faces.
