Well, it is officially Spring. This being said, it has been snowing <i>all </i>day. Why is this happening to us!? I want sunshine and I want to read outside and eat strawberries while lying in the grass.<br /><br />Needless to say, this cold weather has left me a tad moody. In the end, creating a Polyvore set inspired by a warmer season, was the only thing to lift my mood. I love the colors in this look and the dark edge to it. Definitely want all those rings also!<br /><br />What inspires you when you when the weather is dreary?<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3742/13195110134_3dffc5aaef_o.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3742/13195110134_3dffc5aaef_o.jpg" /></a></div>Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com3tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-51070943552791006302014-03-21T08:20:00.002-07:002014-03-21T08:20:19.116-07:00Red<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AlzPsUL8nT8/UyxV0c2mARI/AAAAAAAADpE/P9ptLmPccLQ/s1600/IMG_3776.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AlzPsUL8nT8/UyxV0c2mARI/AAAAAAAADpE/P9ptLmPccLQ/s1600/IMG_3776.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Dress-&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=541077&amp;u=918259&amp;m=43745&amp;urllink=&amp;afftrack=">Modcloth</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Shirt- Forever 21</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Purse- Cambridge Satchel Company</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Tights- H&amp;M</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Shoes- Bass</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-BZ3W_ev-0s0/UyxV0a47_kI/AAAAAAAADpI/d1e6ZFUZXDQ/s1600/IMG_3835.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-BZ3W_ev-0s0/UyxV0a47_kI/AAAAAAAADpI/d1e6ZFUZXDQ/s1600/IMG_3835.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1RDMS6g6_zo/UyxV11DWuKI/AAAAAAAADpk/Lj3mhVnfeJA/s1600/IMG_3877.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1RDMS6g6_zo/UyxV11DWuKI/AAAAAAAADpk/Lj3mhVnfeJA/s1600/IMG_3877.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-saRjsfd2Sus/UyxV1XAcfkI/AAAAAAAADpY/QrtceLkIt2U/s1600/IMG_3853.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-saRjsfd2Sus/UyxV1XAcfkI/AAAAAAAADpY/QrtceLkIt2U/s1600/IMG_3853.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-MdcToai9Muw/UyxV19fmW3I/AAAAAAAADpg/sQ_nAZACtPw/s1600/IMG_3883.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-MdcToai9Muw/UyxV19fmW3I/AAAAAAAADpg/sQ_nAZACtPw/s1600/IMG_3883.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1XxSBOikIuo/UyxV0f-aR_I/AAAAAAAADpQ/gTBdXthN5_8/s1600/IMG_3764.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1XxSBOikIuo/UyxV0f-aR_I/AAAAAAAADpQ/gTBdXthN5_8/s1600/IMG_3764.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I'm red! Or well, my hair is. A lot of people have been asking me, what's wrong with purple?? The answer is nothing! I am just having fun and trying out new colors. However, I have come to the conclusion that having hair a bright, fun, and saturated color is a load of work. Not sure what I want to do after this color, keep experimenting or back to a nice auburn?&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Also, how adorable is this little pinafore from&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=541077&amp;u=918259&amp;m=43745&amp;urllink=&amp;afftrack=">Modcloth</a>? I was waiting a long time for this one to come back in stock and I snagged it up right when it did. I don't typically like to buy things that are not on sale, or from the Goodwill or something, but I had to make an exception. Mainly because I don't have another piece like this one, but also because you can constantly change it up just by wearing something else underneath!

The papers written in that room, which I was in, formed The United States of America. Crazy if you really think about it. Especially thinking about what D.C. looked like to them? I wish I could just be transported to another time and view everyday life. Maybe one day? Until then, I will be here dreaming of times forgotten and trying to find ways to influence their fashion trends into modern fashion! Did I mention I love history?

The snow has finally melted. Hopefully this means we are headed for Spring over here in the North East. I find myself wanting to run out on the trails and ride my bike on warm sunny days. Ah, sounds too good to be true right now. At least, with no snow, there is some hope now. The only part disappointing about the melting of snow is all the brown underneath. I want some color in my life lately and this scenery is really letting me down. Guess this means I will just have to start wearing some more colors!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I am actually not wearing any black today, which is a tad unusual. I didn't feel uncomfortable though, it was nice to change things up. And speaking of change, I have noticed my style preferences changing a bit drastically lately. Normally when this happens I am pretty hesitant since it means I want a new wardrobe, but I am glad about it this time around. Finally feels like I am getting back to my true self. In honor of this change, I decided to make a new layout for the blog. One that I believe really fits with Wild Flower and I am pretty excited about it.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">People are always scared of change, but it is not always something to fear.

text-align: left;">Hi guys,&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Like my new and totally <i>amazing</i>&nbsp;Harry Potter bag? It had been on my Etsy wish list for a while and I finally caved and bought it. Seriously, one of the best decisions of the year so far. Not only does it give off a lovely nerd vibe, but it also fits all my school books. Basically this means I get to wear it <b>everywhere</b>. Ah man, it is just so good! Plus I am currently rereading the first Harry Potter book and it keeps me in the mood.&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sC9OLTjovu4/Uxevl5synUI/AAAAAAAADjw/dgNNHeYn5g8/s1600/IMG_3373.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sC9OLTjovu4/Uxevl5synUI/AAAAAAAADjw/dgNNHeYn5g8/s1600/IMG_3373.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-oS3Js-crTH0/UxevlJBn19I/AAAAAAAADjQ/7DKMsC60De0/s1600/IMG_3393.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-oS3Js-crTH0/UxevlJBn19I/AAAAAAAADjQ/7DKMsC60De0/s1600/IMG_3393.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Just in case you are ever conflicted on what to wear when you need to hike up a small mountain covered in snow: creepers. I was pretty excited once I started my trek up that they weren't slipping and sliding all over the place. The creepers actually had a really decent grip. Only another reason to love my little punk grunge shoes.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Recently I have been trying to get into wearing rings. Basically I find it pretty difficult to find a ring that I really love. When I do, they are typically <i>way</i>&nbsp;to expensive for me to even think about purchasing. This pretty one though I found at an antique store for a decent price, it was even on sale! And it doesn't turn my finger green, a complete success in my opinion. I have seen some really pretty rings on Etsy, hopefully I can start to get a good collection of them.&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-2e_T4cjlcuY/UxevlPu1g0I/AAAAAAAADjU/sOBC_Boqyjc/s1600/IMG_3420.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-2e_T4cjlcuY/UxevlPu1g0I/AAAAAAAADjU/sOBC_Boqyjc/s1600/IMG_3420.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9iHl1M1wYHE/UxevmKkPggI/AAAAAAAADjo/2B9ktxvG348/s1600/IMG_3463.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9iHl1M1wYHE/UxevmKkPggI/AAAAAAAADjo/2B9ktxvG348/s1600/IMG_3463.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">How adorable is the print on this dress though?

There is something so cozy and romantic about it, I am totally in love. At my work we get in a lot of Free People clothing in. However, it was only recently that I started to fall in love with their product. I had thought previously that their clothing was a tad too bohemian for my personal style, but now that opinion has completely changed. There was a really nice black, long tunic that came in last week. I tried it on and fell in love, especially with a price of 10 dollars. I do not often go in Free People clothing stores, but I am aware of the hefty price tag all their clothes wear.<br /><br />It seems that since this top came in I cannot stop myself from finding cute Free People pieces all over my work. It has been amazing, this top is actually the third item I bought of their brand in the past two weeks. Granted there is still a lot of clothing of theirs I do not think I could effectively pull off, but I am really starting to crush on them. I wonder how often they have sales at their store? Got to stay on budget here!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5fbPZ9ak-_c/UwjFz2NCLSI/AAAAAAAADic/H1ns68FmK-I/s1600/boot.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5fbPZ9ak-_c/UwjFz2NCLSI/AAAAAAAADic/H1ns68FmK-I/s1600/boot.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GXzlrXVCFw0/UwjEts4Wn1I/AAAAAAAADiQ/bDfD39CiPAY/s1600/IMG_3191.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GXzlrXVCFw0/UwjEts4Wn1I/AAAAAAAADiQ/bDfD39CiPAY/s1600/IMG_3191.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-xTnMGt-hU8k/UwjH6QcwTeI/AAAAAAAADio/QNJ0muTOFs4/s1600/hair.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-xTnMGt-hU8k/UwjH6QcwTeI/AAAAAAAADio/QNJ0muTOFs4/s1600/hair.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-W4GZet1pdB4/UwjEqAHd7iI/AAAAAAAADh4/QL2QT_jIMRw/s1600/IMG_3181.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-W4GZet1pdB4/UwjEqAHd7iI/AAAAAAAADh4/QL2QT_jIMRw/s1600/IMG_3181.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Nothing like some Ganesha necklace power to give me wisdom throughout the day.

Fashion week is such an exciting time for all fashionistas and I hope one day I will actually be able to attend. However until then, I will post some of my favorite collections from this past week!<br /><br />1. Wild Fox<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PucvYcZeMXo/Uvwx3VH8RVI/AAAAAAAADfg/JCHwud0xdqI/s1600/wfx_fw14_018.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PucvYcZeMXo/Uvwx3VH8RVI/AAAAAAAADfg/JCHwud0xdqI/s1600/wfx_fw14_018.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-wZ8WRU9Vwic/UvwzFO_4PqI/AAAAAAAADfs/MDcLueGmDDI/s1600/wfx_fw14_010.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-wZ8WRU9Vwic/UvwzFO_4PqI/AAAAAAAADfs/MDcLueGmDDI/s1600/wfx_fw14_010.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-uePcOCZGu3c/UvwzFDstMHI/AAAAAAAADfw/7Fz_jBuWrII/s1600/wfx_fw14_030.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-uePcOCZGu3c/UvwzFDstMHI/AAAAAAAADfw/7Fz_jBuWrII/s1600/wfx_fw14_030.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-FbpQL_s6Qew/UvwzFNexzKI/AAAAAAAADf0/R_2AafwD9bs/s1600/wfx_fw14_044.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-FbpQL_s6Qew/UvwzFNexzKI/AAAAAAAADf0/R_2AafwD9bs/s1600/wfx_fw14_044.jpg.download.jpg.download.original.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">(all images belong to WGSN)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">This ready to wear line was Wild Fox's first line to be show at NYFW. As you can see from the pictures above the style is very romantic with a little bit of edge to it. I absolutely love it! Being able to wear such simple and sweet colors while still looking like an effortless bad ass is a major plus in my books. Plus all the UK graphics are really lovely, definitely want that Mrs. Darcy shirt!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Check out Wild Fox&nbsp;<a href="http://www.wildfoxcouture.com/">here</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">2.

I fell in love with this particular collection because it is something I wish I could pull off. To be able to wear all black without looking completely gothic is quite a feat. Instead these men look like killer vampires from another century and on a whole new level of cool. I also would like to own <i>all</i>&nbsp;the coats shown above, simply stunning.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Check out Noir&nbsp;<a href="http://noirclothing.com/">here</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">3.

I was having a conversation with my boyfriend during lunch and I was casually saying how I am not very creative. He was about to say something, but then changed his words at the list minute and asked why I thought that. I told him that I am just not that innovative, that is a struggle for me to think of something completely original. Then he got serious and said, "Well, I think that is what school does to a lot people. Tells them to think one way and then once your brain learns that method of thinking it is hard to change it." This caused me to stare out the window and ponder what he had said for a few minutes.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Could it be true? What a frightening idea, it almost seems like he was suggesting a form of brainwash. However the longer I sat there, staring out the window at nothing in particular, the more it seemed plausible to me. School is rather controlling, at least public school (from my past experience). However, I realized this could not be true, because it was not like we were being taught by the same teacher for all our classes. Students switch from class to class and get taught from different minds with different ideas and beliefs everyday. Before voicing my new found data that his theory could not be true, another thought struck me.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">In elementary school I was taught by one teacher for the whole year. Perhaps not having enough opinions at a young age has actually affected me, my creativity. I agreed with him. "How do we fix our minds then?", I asked. He looked me in the eye and said "You have to be weird". At which point we both laughed and moved on to another topic.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Perhaps weird is a harsh word, so let's go with quirky. Quirky people, the ones who know random facts, who read books all day for fun, or who have amazing skills that one could never guess, these are the people I am envious of. They do what they want and even though they may be labeled weird by mainstream society, they don't care. They can create and do what they please, it must be so freeing. I wonder what it is like to not be held back by what we have been taught is correct or appropriate.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The point is, I am scared that I will not be able to fix this. That is too late for me, but that is silly right? Surely creativity is something you can work on and get better at, surely you can stop caring about what other people think and do what you want. I do not like the idea of being stuck in this state of an average mind so therefore I have to try to make it better. Perhaps drawing? Listening to new music? Sewing? All I know is I want to get started immediately, before my worst fears come true, and it is too late for me.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #351c75;"><b>Side note: One of my lovely readers mentioned a TED video to watch on the subject of education and creativity, which was just brilliant.

Today I want to show you a typical school outfit. Which consists of tights, &nbsp;a dress, and my little&nbsp;<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;">Fjällräven backpack. I always try to make the outfit a little more casual by accompanying a dress with flats/boots instead of heels and layering sweaters often. I know it may still seem a bit dressed up, but I like to look put together at school. It also doesn't hurt that dressing nice gives the professors a more professional opinion.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;">I typically end up switching around what bag I take my books in, but as of right now, this one is my favorite. It reminds me of the warm Spring I spent in Stockholm. Practically every person I saw had one of these backpacks and I couldn't resist getting one for myself. Along with a beautiful pair of Acne high waisted jeans, which I really should wear more often.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;">The days are getting longer and I can tell that people are anxious for Spring. Somehow the Winter has not really bothered me yet. Layering clothes is one my favorite styles so I am just trying to make the best of the freezing weather we have been having as of late. I do not think I am ready for the simplicity of Summer outfits or the humidity of Summer weather. That being said, taking pictures outside without having to thaw out my hands after would be a nice thing too. Basically just trying to go with the flow and enjoy life for how it is. Something I find myself too often not doing. As they say,I need to live in the moment.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="-webkit-text-decorations-in-effect: none; color: black; font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</span></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-10234939092112190192014-01-29T14:47:00.000-08:002014-01-29T14:47:26.241-08:00Skittles<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7v73oZ2j_i4/UumAjI-ya5I/AAAAAAAADcg/fevugDHteKw/s1600/IMG_2776.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7v73oZ2j_i4/UumAjI-ya5I/AAAAAAAADcg/fevugDHteKw/s1600/IMG_2776.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Coat: Thrifted</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Scarf: Unlabeled (from my amazing dad!)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Gloves: Unlabeled (from my amazing mom!)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Dress: Topshop</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Tights: H&amp;M</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Oxfords: Bass</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PT1QANujWsk/UumAk9u88tI/AAAAAAAADdE/yorKS9W2F48/s1600/IMG_2878.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PT1QANujWsk/UumAk9u88tI/AAAAAAAADdE/yorKS9W2F48/s1600/IMG_2878.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Hi guys, I have <b><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #0b5394;">blue</span></b> hair.&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7NPnEej45mY/UumAkL-tbBI/AAAAAAAADdA/u_AGYAVQ52M/s1600/IMG_2837.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7NPnEej45mY/UumAkL-tbBI/AAAAAAAADdA/u_AGYAVQ52M/s1600/IMG_2837.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-POrJVyZ0Ugg/UumAkEb8RrI/AAAAAAAADc0/HdE3DT_gnoU/s1600/IMG_2825.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-POrJVyZ0Ugg/UumAkEb8RrI/AAAAAAAADc0/HdE3DT_gnoU/s1600/IMG_2825.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sEiUWlNKMYc/UumAix2I7DI/AAAAAAAADcc/4SfjJ2gIkeg/s1600/IMG_2821.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sEiUWlNKMYc/UumAix2I7DI/AAAAAAAADcc/4SfjJ2gIkeg/s1600/IMG_2821.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_4lqwAa2QiU/UumAi-dNT5I/AAAAAAAADco/B8kmx1WJoSk/s1600/IMG_2810.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_4lqwAa2QiU/UumAi-dNT5I/AAAAAAAADco/B8kmx1WJoSk/s1600/IMG_2810.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-79_ggNgWfkw/UumAkTDj7II/AAAAAAAADc8/mMN09VZ3X94/s1600/IMG_2864.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-79_ggNgWfkw/UumAkTDj7II/AAAAAAAADc8/mMN09VZ3X94/s1600/IMG_2864.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">As the title of this post suggests, I felt a wee bit like a skittle today. You may have already noticed, but I finally dyed my hair blue, which I think turned out pretty awesome. However there are a few things that are not so great about it.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">First off, I had looked everywhere for Special Effects hair dye in the color Blue Mayhem. From some reason this turned out to be an impossible task. This specific dye was literally <i>sold out everywhere</i>. To my annoyance, I realized the only colors I could really find by this particular brand was either pink or red. Now, there is nothing wrong with having pink or red hair, but I really had my heart set on blue.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Finally, I decided to settle on some blue Manic Panic dye. I had used Manic Panic before when dying my hair purple over the summer, which only lasted about a week and was not really worth the money, but I figured I would give it another try. Unfortunately this blue dye literally stains <b>everything</b>. My ears, my neck, my pillow, the collars on my shirts. I have washed it out a few times now but it is still bleeding on everything. It's even on the sides of my glasses!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">While it looks completely awesome it has rather turned into an annoyance. I wish Special Effects would keep producing blue! But enough of my Manic Panic rant, this week has been going pretty well. I have started up the Insanity program, have you guys heard of this? It is a totally "insane" cardio and strength training video and boy has it been whipping my butt into shape. At the beginning of the new year I knew I needed to make working out and eating healthy a priority again. I sort of let things slide last year... but now I am getting back on schedule and it feels great! It is actually amazing how much better I do feel.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Other than that just a lot of school and work. Anything exciting happening in your life?&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">(It kind of makes me excited hearing about other people's awesome adventures)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Let me know!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com8tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-1384026380896301872014-01-26T21:00:00.002-08:002014-01-26T21:00:17.784-08:00Plaid<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AHROvD1m0zU/UuW8SRiqKyI/AAAAAAAADb0/7VgHz3vMTVo/s1600/IMG_2706.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AHROvD1m0zU/UuW8SRiqKyI/AAAAAAAADb0/7VgHz3vMTVo/s1600/IMG_2706.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Headband: Urban Outfitters</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Scarf: Uptown Cheapskate</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Dress: Modcloth</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Belt: Forever 21</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Tights: H&amp;M</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Boots: Dr. Martens</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WWYHJncMPho/UuW8TU9JsiI/AAAAAAAADb4/dUPRLumIuk4/s1600/IMG_2735.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WWYHJncMPho/UuW8TU9JsiI/AAAAAAAADb4/dUPRLumIuk4/s1600/IMG_2735.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xgqp4fkaE9E/UuW8TjExTeI/AAAAAAAADcE/qiXcaZ9pNTE/s1600/IMG_2748.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xgqp4fkaE9E/UuW8TjExTeI/AAAAAAAADcE/qiXcaZ9pNTE/s1600/IMG_2748.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-80gnXRW1dPk/UuW8SS3c36I/AAAAAAAADbw/tZchKRNYDnU/s1600/IMG_2692.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-80gnXRW1dPk/UuW8SS3c36I/AAAAAAAADbw/tZchKRNYDnU/s1600/IMG_2692.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-A8jYHqAzoRE/UuW8TViggeI/AAAAAAAADb8/sXLmtp3Eax4/s1600/IMG_2729.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-A8jYHqAzoRE/UuW8TViggeI/AAAAAAAADb8/sXLmtp3Eax4/s1600/IMG_2729.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-AFZxoEL7K_A/UuW8STjonQI/AAAAAAAADbk/uU4j_3anTkk/s1600/IMG_2715.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-AFZxoEL7K_A/UuW8STjonQI/AAAAAAAADbk/uU4j_3anTkk/s1600/IMG_2715.png" /></a></div><br />Today I positively froze while taking these pictures. Being a blogger in the Winter is a lot tougher than I had remembered. In fact, I had to come in and thaw out my hands for a few minutes after, <i>but</i>, totally worth it. Why? Because I love sharing my outfits with you and getting your feedback on them. I also love the idea of inspiring someone else. That is a really amazing feeling.<br /><br />Anyhow, here are some fun facts about plaid!<br /><br /><ul><li>Although I call it plaid, it is actually tartan</li><li>This pattern dates all the way back to the 17th century</li><li>Plaid originally comes from Scotland</li><li>In 1746 plaid was banned by the British for four decades (following the Scottish Revolutions)</li></ul>Random facts are the best, aren't they? I love whipping them out in everyday conversations and seeing people's reactions. The best is when the other person asks how you know that, it makes me feel like that fact must be a pretty cool one. Am I the only one out there who likes to remember random facts?<br /><br />Getting ready for my third week of school, and I believe most of you are heading back now. So good luck to you guys!

Even their tattoos!&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7XeS3ph4xsA/UuM0es0dj_I/AAAAAAAADbI/2BTwRXeghKA/s1600/Aerie5.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7XeS3ph4xsA/UuM0es0dj_I/AAAAAAAADbI/2BTwRXeghKA/s1600/Aerie5.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-hJtpAhwmPdQ/UuM0dccPamI/AAAAAAAADa4/_BbuFZCIXEY/s1600/Aerie1.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-hJtpAhwmPdQ/UuM0dccPamI/AAAAAAAADa4/_BbuFZCIXEY/s1600/Aerie1.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Eunb41M25SA/UuM0ddadIAI/AAAAAAAADbA/ZRmgy0vOK_4/s1600/Aerie2.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Eunb41M25SA/UuM0ddadIAI/AAAAAAAADbA/ZRmgy0vOK_4/s1600/Aerie2.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dkv-NKxMxlA/UuM0dru6YdI/AAAAAAAADa0/hOuJoXE6qbo/s1600/Aerie3.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dkv-NKxMxlA/UuM0dru6YdI/AAAAAAAADa0/hOuJoXE6qbo/s1600/Aerie3.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">(all photo's belong to&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ae.com/aerie/index.jsp">Aerie</a>)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">As you can see from the pictures these girls actually look, well, <i>real</i>. I am so overjoyed with this whole ad campaign that I knew I had to share it with you guys. As consumers, we are all constantly bombarded by this "ideal" person. For men it is a tall muscular manly-man and for women it is a stick thin figure with flowing locks and perfect skin. However, all of us know that this perfect person is fictional. Sure there are some people out there that would disagree with me, but none of us are the same. There are so many body types out in the world, yet only a very limited few make it in advertisements that are thrown at our faces on a constant basis.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">All this ad bombardment has really messed with our minds. I remember in high school, after someone had called me fat (wore a size 9 jeans at the time) all I wanted to do was stop eating and work out a lot. Fortunately I found out a day later that not eating was definitely not going to be an option, I really do love food, haha. Still, every time I worked out I pictured these girls in my head, with perfect bodies like the models from Hollister, in their tiny bikini's. While this motivated me to work out, in the end it left me rather frustrated and slightly depressed. I couldn't look like those girls. My hips were too wide. My knees too close together. I could have listed off a million problems I had with myself.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">After some much needed rethinking I came to the conclusion that I only have one body and that I better make the best of it. In the end it was really my family and friends who made me realize this. However, I wonder what it must be like for people who aren't lucky enough to have a supportive structure around them filled with people who really care about them. This is why we need more companies to do things like this! I love it. Or if anyone wants to talk to me, just shoot me an e-mail I would love to help in any way possible.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Hopefully this post was a good reminder to always love your body. We should all be celebrating the bodies we have not hating them.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Carry that love with you throughout the weekend and have a great one!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com3tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-36662469376642534352014-01-21T17:32:00.002-08:002014-01-21T17:32:59.665-08:00Rivendell<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xpUE3sP0jWA/Ut8bMHfWsnI/AAAAAAAADZw/qUIZQxWRyzQ/s1600/IMG_2642.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xpUE3sP0jWA/Ut8bMHfWsnI/AAAAAAAADZw/qUIZQxWRyzQ/s1600/IMG_2642.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Hat &amp; gloves: Modcloth</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Scarf: Unlabeled&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Coat: Michael Kors</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Sweater: Nordstrom</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Dress: H&amp;M</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Tights: Under Armour</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Boots: Dr. Martens</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-s3STBMOs0ps/Ut8bNf9A_qI/AAAAAAAADaA/4LpsL5AbRKg/s1600/IMG_2655.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-s3STBMOs0ps/Ut8bNf9A_qI/AAAAAAAADaA/4LpsL5AbRKg/s1600/IMG_2655.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I mentioned a few posts ago that I got two new pairs of Dr. Martens for Christmas. I already posted in the first pair (black), but these are the second ones I got. They are floral rain boot Dr. Martens, which is just so lovely and so practical. As you can see we have got quite a bit moisture on the ground in the North East today so I was eager to head out in the cold and try out the boots.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I grew up in Southern California so snow is not really what I am used to living with. It certainly has been a new experience over the past four years since moving across country. As you can tell from my facial expressions in these pictures, I love it! The best part about the snow (apart from not having to go to school) is going out right after it has finished and just soaking the beauty of your new surroundings. It is eerily silent after a good snow and everywhere you look is shades of white, blue, and purple. It practically feels like a different world, a more magical one.&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XvQoR69zljA/Ut8bLzAAYgI/AAAAAAAADZ8/NkxuyBISR1Q/s1600/IMG_2632.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XvQoR69zljA/Ut8bLzAAYgI/AAAAAAAADZ8/NkxuyBISR1Q/s1600/IMG_2632.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TKErNEy5YX4/Ut8bMEsWp4I/AAAAAAAADZ4/9YvAKlGZL6M/s1600/IMG_2634.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TKErNEy5YX4/Ut8bMEsWp4I/AAAAAAAADZ4/9YvAKlGZL6M/s1600/IMG_2634.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DryTJmKSEOA/Ut8bNSF03aI/AAAAAAAADaI/f2A7U092A0Y/s1600/IMG_2644.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DryTJmKSEOA/Ut8bNSF03aI/AAAAAAAADaI/f2A7U092A0Y/s1600/IMG_2644.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Speaking of magical worlds, earlier today I took an online quiz to see what fictional city I was meant to live in. Before the results were in I was pondering over what city I hoped the results would show me. I was in a strong conflict between Hogsmeade and Narnia, but alas neither city is for me. At least, according to the quiz. Apparently I meant to live in the world of Lord of the Rings, the city of Rivendell to be exact. Something I found slightly ironic since that is practically the only major fantasy series I have not read before. Perhaps it is a sign?&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Anyhow, if you want to take the quiz too,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/what-fictional-city-should-you-actually-live-in">Here</a>&nbsp;is the link.

When on vacation I always loose a small bit of my sense of purpose. Luckily everything is back to normal!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><b>"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me"</b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: right;"><b>- C.S. Lewis</b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">With the weather so cold lately it has got me thinking about how much I love to sit inside under a warm blanket with a cup of green tea in one hand and a novel in the other. I am sure I have mentioned this before, but I <i>love</i>&nbsp;to read. I love it so much that I even log all the books I had read and go over the list every once in a while and reminisce about all the lovely books I have read. Sometimes I even decide to reread one of my favorites.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">When I was younger, most of my class mates would complain about reading assignments in literature class, which made me feel like an outcast, I loved getting new reading assignments. Some of the books I was forced to read through school even ended up on my favorites list. Since all my friends would rather go out and doing something it made me feel like I did not belong. I preferred to stay in and get lost in the words of another decade or another world, something I didn't think other people understood, least of all my friends.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">One day I ran across a novel that I absolutely fell in love with. You might have heard of this book because it was made into a Hollywood motion picture, which in my opinion was quite terrible compared to the book. The book that opened my eyes was <i>The Other Boleyn Girl</i>&nbsp;by Phillippa Gregory. This novel, which I have now read about five times, taught me that I love reading more than anything and it does not matter if none of my friends do either. Why should I base what I want to do in my free time on friend's opinions? I shouldn't.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Ever since reading <i>The Other Boleyn Girl</i>&nbsp;my enthusiasm for books has grown to a whole new level. If you like to read as I do then you know how awesome it is to go to a book store. I honestly could stay in any given book store for at least two hours. Sure one might say I seem a bit obsessed, but I believe that would be confusing obsession with dedication. Reading expands the mind and opens ones imagination, how could anyone not enjoy that?</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">If you are not a natural reader this might be a bit difficult to explain, but I shall try. When reading a good book it is like watching an amazing movie. Except it is longer and you can start and stop whenever you choose. Also, you get to cast the characters in your mind and be the stylist too! I am always slightly disappointed when I have read a book that is made into a movie and they do not wear the clothes I had put them in while reading. But back to why I love reading, It is a chance of escape from the real world into, most of the time, a better and more exciting one. You get a different point of view what is like to be someone else, which makes you realize that every random person you see on the street has their own story, their own experiences and their own life.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I would like to end this post by encouraging you guys to pick a book on any subject that you are interested in and give it a try! If you are an avid reader, do you have any good book suggestions? I am always looking for new ones!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Have a great week everyone,</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-84630314938641494432014-01-12T18:05:00.003-08:002014-01-12T18:05:29.417-08:00Wish Upon a Star<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-dMK2_g77ssc/UtNIKwmzCNI/AAAAAAAADYU/YwX-vF2MgDQ/s1600/Untitled-1.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-dMK2_g77ssc/UtNIKwmzCNI/AAAAAAAADYU/YwX-vF2MgDQ/s1600/Untitled-1.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/far-haute-dress">1</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://us.topshop.com/en/tsus/product/shoes-70484/boots-70514/alexy-platform-chelsea-boots-120454?bi=81&amp;ps=20">2</a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.etsy.com/listing/79468716/turquoise-bullet-necklace?ref=favs_view_15">3</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.modcloth.com/shop/pullovers-sweaters/pet-sitting-pretty-sweater">4</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.modcloth.com/shop/tabletop/the-big-sipper-mug">5</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://us.asos.com/ASOS-Cable-Palmwarmer/11sbhl/?iid=3239987&amp;cid=4174&amp;sh=0&amp;pge=0&amp;pgesize=36&amp;sort=-1&amp;clr=Grey&amp;mporgp=L0FTT1MvQVNPUy1DYWJsZS1QYWxtd2FybWVyL1Byb2Qv">6</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.modcloth.com/shop/coats/excitement-in-the-air-coat">7</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://us.asos.com/Frye-Veronica-Combat-Lace-up-Boots/124m3v/?iid=3560834&amp;mporgp=L0ZyeWUvRnJ5ZS1WZXJvbmljYS1Db21iYXQtTGFjZS1VcC1Cb290cy9Qcm9kLw..&amp;WT.ac=rec_viewed">8</a></div><br />Since I am currently trying to save up a bit of money I have been making wish lists of items I would like to buy if I could just head out and purchase any item I admire. Surprisingly this is actually helping with my urge to shop. I suppose going through the "shopping process" is enough to satisfy myself. Or maybe it is the fact that I did a lot of shopping while I was home for break? Probably the latter. Either way, I am having some fun doing this online window shopping thing and I believe I shall continue with it!<br /><br />Long week ahead of me, but I am going to try and put up some more outfit posts this week. Maybe a DIY next weekend. Until then, have a good one!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-25944307934447970632014-01-10T09:48:00.002-08:002014-01-10T09:48:39.553-08:00New Grunge<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-8DyAj1eNX3Y/UtAso5C1dHI/AAAAAAAADXU/cGCjDHhM5Wk/s1600/IMG_2337.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-8DyAj1eNX3Y/UtAso5C1dHI/AAAAAAAADXU/cGCjDHhM5Wk/s1600/IMG_2337.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">{Cardigan: Gift! -- Dress: Forever 21 -- Tights: H&amp;M -- Boots: Dr. Martens -- Ring: Vintage -- Belt: Modcloth}</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-gAJz2rJcdRo/UtAst4OX7hI/AAAAAAAADX0/Y8tCPdQKiss/s1600/IMG_2387.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-gAJz2rJcdRo/UtAst4OX7hI/AAAAAAAADX0/Y8tCPdQKiss/s1600/IMG_2387.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I am officially addicted to Dr. Marten shoes. I was browsing around Nordstrom's Rack the other evening with my lovely Mom when I noticed they had a few pairs of Docs at half price. I ended up picking up two pairs {this being one of them!}. I've been wanting black ones for a while since they are so versatile and these ones are just perfect. Especially with the awesome eyelet detail they have on the top three lacings. Oh did I mention I now have <i>five</i>&nbsp;pairs of Docs. Believe it or not, I still want more! They are so comfy and amazing, I feel like I would be lost without all my bad ass boots. Hopefully this means my collection will continue to grow!&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lzcHSRDm2rE/UtAso8P-nyI/AAAAAAAADXM/vn_e-YF_HRM/s1600/IMG_2357.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lzcHSRDm2rE/UtAso8P-nyI/AAAAAAAADXM/vn_e-YF_HRM/s1600/IMG_2357.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Vm7POBbgH2M/UtAso6fPzmI/AAAAAAAADXQ/7cswaDfeOVo/s1600/IMG_2360.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Vm7POBbgH2M/UtAso6fPzmI/AAAAAAAADXQ/7cswaDfeOVo/s1600/IMG_2360.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4LjYmjVtJCY/UtAss9fN3VI/AAAAAAAADXw/PS9d_HEwfFE/s1600/IMG_2384.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4LjYmjVtJCY/UtAss9fN3VI/AAAAAAAADXw/PS9d_HEwfFE/s1600/IMG_2384.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-36Fwf7cbcmg/UtAsr0NwAGI/AAAAAAAADXk/virgO4qGQtk/s1600/IMG_2374.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-36Fwf7cbcmg/UtAsr0NwAGI/AAAAAAAADXk/virgO4qGQtk/s1600/IMG_2374.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Today is my last day back home in California. However, I do not think I am quite ready to head back to the East Coast yet. I am excited to get back to work and school and to see all my friends I have made over the past three years, but at the same time, I am going to miss my parents. I literally could not ask for two better to people to have raised me. My mom is my best friend and my dad always knows how to cheer me up {he spoils me like crazy!}.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">It is strange to me to feel this sad because when I think back on my last year of High School I was practically dying to get away. I wanted to move far away, but I never really thought about how hard that would be sometimes. Sure Skype and talking on the phone helps with most home sickness symptoms that I have, but there is just something missing when I am away. I believe it is a feeling of comfort and safety, but I am not entirely sure if that is all it is. I wonder sometimes where I will be after I finish school, but all I hope for right now is that I will not be too far from my family.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">With all this said I shall go out and enjoy my last day here, especially that warm weather! &nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Have a great weekend everyone,</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div>Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com4tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-84111269987897612662014-01-04T17:31:00.000-08:002014-01-04T17:32:15.556-08:00I Wanna Be Sedated<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fXjkZ9A4YVE/UsixIo_yM2I/AAAAAAAADW0/VS4klbbQ8c4/s1600/IMG_2325.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fXjkZ9A4YVE/UsixIo_yM2I/AAAAAAAADW0/VS4klbbQ8c4/s1600/IMG_2325.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IYaMkZWFewY/UsiwPOry4QI/AAAAAAAADWM/7IgPTE0LBeA/s1600/IMG_2295.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IYaMkZWFewY/UsiwPOry4QI/AAAAAAAADWM/7IgPTE0LBeA/s1600/IMG_2295.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-wY5lBrWlqPk/UsixFQT-lVI/AAAAAAAADWU/CHnTpaPndxY/s1600/IMG_2314.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-wY5lBrWlqPk/UsixFQT-lVI/AAAAAAAADWU/CHnTpaPndxY/s1600/IMG_2314.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-SK47yrv0BBs/UsixGe-N7lI/AAAAAAAADWk/50MehTsLegE/s1600/IMG_2300.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-SK47yrv0BBs/UsixGe-N7lI/AAAAAAAADWk/50MehTsLegE/s1600/IMG_2300.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-8CTs3f5eN1U/UsixIOuLfGI/AAAAAAAADWw/-0FfGV9xDUA/s1600/IMG_2317.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-8CTs3f5eN1U/UsixIOuLfGI/AAAAAAAADWw/-0FfGV9xDUA/s1600/IMG_2317.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">{Floral Crown: DIY -- Jacket:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.dpbolvw.net/click-5268279-11037870">Modcloth</a>&nbsp;-- T-shirt: Thrifted -- Skirt: Thrifted -- Tights: H&amp;M -- Boots: Dr. Martens}</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Hello hello everyone. I've been getting some use out of my new floral crown, it turned it out quite lovely! I am always a bit shocked when I make something and it ends up looking like, well, like I didn't make it. I really should get into the habit of making more things since I know you guys really enjoy my DIY posts. Hopefully once I get down some sewing skills I can really take off with my craftiness. Which brings me to a question that I was going to ask you all, do any of you have an inspiration journal? I've been wanting one for a while, but I am also uncertain on where to begin. Any tips or advice would be lovely!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">My winter break is finally winding down and I am not really feeling too excited for my next semester. Granted I only have class two days a week it still feels like a ton of stress coming my way. And whether it is my own or my family's doing I feel a lot of pressure to get high grades. I'm certain it is a mix of both, but I am scared of disappointing everyone around me or even worse, myself. I know this stress got the better of me last semester, which is probably why I am feeling so anxious, but I am determined to not let that happen again. I am ready to fight and finally start enjoying my life a bit more. Everyone always says less stress makes a person more happy, so my number one goal for this upcoming semester is to take a deep breathe and keep reminding myself to relax.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and keeping warm&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com8tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-8372897817361023992014-01-02T16:59:00.002-08:002014-01-02T16:59:56.469-08:00Villa Noir<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZNnMQct-wXA/UsYHd_1T0iI/AAAAAAAADVI/QQAiB_U9Cdc/s1600/IMG_2220.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZNnMQct-wXA/UsYHd_1T0iI/AAAAAAAADVI/QQAiB_U9Cdc/s1600/IMG_2220.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">{Dress:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.dpbolvw.net/click-5268279-11037870">Modcloth</a>&nbsp;-- Tights: H&amp;M -- Oxfords: Bass -- Purse: UO}</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-aqJZKWuUpFs/UsYHbaHuH1I/AAAAAAAADU4/7r7JIqNumeI/s1600/IMG_2163.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-aqJZKWuUpFs/UsYHbaHuH1I/AAAAAAAADU4/7r7JIqNumeI/s1600/IMG_2163.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Hi Lovelies. Today was quite a nice vacation day because instead of just sitting around the house doing nothing I went to a really beautiful museum. The Getty Villa, which is located in Malibu, used to be a private residence for the Getty family, but has since been donated and is open to the public. Inside this spectacular house {which has some killer views of the Pacific ocean} you will find hundreds of artifacts from the Roman Empire and Ancient Greece. They had everything from beautifully carved marble to fascinating old jewelry and coins. It is just incredible the amount of detail that went into items such a long time ago. I often find myself thinking that if I had not gone to school for Fashion Merchandising I would have chosen history. There is so much to be learned from the past and, luckily for me, I enjoying learning!&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Vn16EANe5QE/UsYHf6toQiI/AAAAAAAADVc/WuELxY96Sc0/s1600/IMG_2247.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Vn16EANe5QE/UsYHf6toQiI/AAAAAAAADVc/WuELxY96Sc0/s1600/IMG_2247.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-eb3Dn7vEEio/UsYHgPW4H7I/AAAAAAAADVg/9L2VleFw7lk/s1600/IMG_2258.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-eb3Dn7vEEio/UsYHgPW4H7I/AAAAAAAADVg/9L2VleFw7lk/s1600/IMG_2258.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DsB2zbFiqC0/UsYHhhMfiJI/AAAAAAAADVw/-NAEVAR7feo/s1600/IMG_2233.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DsB2zbFiqC0/UsYHhhMfiJI/AAAAAAAADVw/-NAEVAR7feo/s1600/IMG_2233.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-UsTbndwK2bE/UsYHdlpf8NI/AAAAAAAADVM/KTNsPAjce1E/s1600/IMG_2165.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-UsTbndwK2bE/UsYHdlpf8NI/AAAAAAAADVM/KTNsPAjce1E/s1600/IMG_2165.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Fn-2MRAQgdI/UsYHgwzlqII/AAAAAAAADVo/xs9HNX5L5Ms/s1600/IMG_2260.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Fn-2MRAQgdI/UsYHgwzlqII/AAAAAAAADVo/xs9HNX5L5Ms/s1600/IMG_2260.png" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VdzgTx4OrHo/UsYHeddCsvI/AAAAAAAADVQ/eK3J6DbXvMw/s1600/IMG_2211.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VdzgTx4OrHo/UsYHeddCsvI/AAAAAAAADVQ/eK3J6DbXvMw/s1600/IMG_2211.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">The museum also turned out to be a great back drop for some outfit pictures. Surprisingly enough I didn't have <i>every</i>&nbsp;person staring at me while I took pictures either, which was a nice surprise. I probably could have taken a million more pictures because there were so many spots where I could not help saying out loud "ooh this would be a great background for outfit pictures". I actually say this a lot, wherever I am, which I am sure annoys my family and friends to no end. But what can I say, I love blogging!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Hope you are having a great start to your New Year</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TFYDRxdMwZc/UTgrGcpHMrI/AAAAAAAADNg/L_0SOLJat8U/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div>Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-74143934832244327352013-12-31T17:13:00.001-08:002013-12-31T17:19:02.868-08:00DIY Floral Headband<div style="text-align: center;">Happy New Year's everyone!&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;">Instead of your typical 2013 flashback I thought a fun and sparkly DIY would be more fun.

For me this year has been a bit of a struggle but finally things seem to be falling into place.

However I am feeling confident that if I really work at this year then only great things can come back out. Have you set your resolutions yet? I'd love to hear them .</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Have a great day everyone!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><h4>Kaylee Nicole</h4><div>xx</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div>Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-57541744527314195632013-11-22T21:55:00.001-08:002013-12-30T09:28:17.697-08:00A New Me <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-56oSG2zFIIw/UpA9pM4xo1I/AAAAAAAADSQ/BwHa4Bm9ai8/s1600/IMG_1795.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-56oSG2zFIIw/UpA9pM4xo1I/AAAAAAAADSQ/BwHa4Bm9ai8/s1600/IMG_1795.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">{Boots: J Shoes -- Sweater: Target -- Hat: Vintage -- Clip: Etsy}&nbsp;</div><br />So you might have noticed something a bit different? Well if not, scroll back up! I know it's kind of camouflaged in this first picture, but I've chopped off all my hair! I've really felt the need for a change and donating all my hair to Locks of Love seemed like a perfect way to begin the "new" me. For those of you who do not know about this organization they take donations of hair and use them to make wigs for people who are suffering from hair loss due to cancer. You can read more about them&nbsp;<a href="http://www.locksoflove.org/">here</a>. I'm still trying to get used to this new length, but I'm thinking of dying my hair again. I'm definitely headed towards blue right now, might as well live it up while I am young right? What do you guys think though? Have you ever dyed your hair blue? Let me know!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qevUSVtnF6Q/UpA9pFJZaAI/AAAAAAAADSU/KsmEzcV9DUg/s1600/IMG_1889.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qevUSVtnF6Q/UpA9pFJZaAI/AAAAAAAADSU/KsmEzcV9DUg/s1600/IMG_1889.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">The second thing I would like to mention today is these amazing boots. I literally can't get over how amazing they look and how comfortable they are. The best part of all is that I purchased these lovely J Shoes at the Salvation Army! Yep, these bad boys were only <i>twenty dollars</i>. Talk about hitting thrift store gold. I should also mention that the boots were BRAND NEW. They had never been worn so now they are fit just to me. Literally have been bragging about them to everyone, which I am sure has gotten annoying by now! But I mean, what a steal. This is why I love secondhand stores, you never know what you will find!&nbsp;</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZBdwE86wo8c/UpA9pKSptqI/AAAAAAAADSM/_IHIwizcgh4/s1600/IMG_1888.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZBdwE86wo8c/UpA9pKSptqI/AAAAAAAADSM/_IHIwizcgh4/s1600/IMG_1888.jpg" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-S2A2Mu45YFs/UpA9psISptI/AAAAAAAADSk/AT_UQ8vjiG0/s1600/IMG_1902.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-S2A2Mu45YFs/UpA9psISptI/AAAAAAAADSk/AT_UQ8vjiG0/s1600/IMG_1902.jpg" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-artupEHJ1xA/UpA9pnihNGI/AAAAAAAADSg/24YdaZ3xKOw/s1600/IMG_1928.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-artupEHJ1xA/UpA9pnihNGI/AAAAAAAADSg/24YdaZ3xKOw/s1600/IMG_1928.jpg" /></a></div><br />Lastly, totally loving this deer motif. Well, lately, I have been into anything with animal print to be honest. Something about autumn makes me want to wear squirrels and deers. Also wearing giant sweaters as dresses has been my go to when I just want to be warm and cozy. It might not be the most fashionable choice out there, but I still believe it looks cute and makes others feel jealous of comfy I am.<br /><br />I'd like to end todays post with a quote that has been on my mind lately:<br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #181818; font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px;">“Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.”</span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #181818; font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #181818; font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px;"><br /></span><br /><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #181818; font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px;">―</span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #181818; font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #181818; font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px;">Maya Angelou</span><br /><br /><br />Have a great weekend everyone!<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IiOEirOOuZM/UpBDJvBtr8I/AAAAAAAADS4/SFbciehYMi8/s1600/signature1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IiOEirOOuZM/UpBDJvBtr8I/AAAAAAAADS4/SFbciehYMi8/s1600/signature1.jpg" /></a></div><br />Wild Flowerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01095914893839038728noreply@blogger.com7tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1071556851276427633.post-46001480758388022052013-11-16T17:01:00.004-08:002013-11-16T17:01:59.058-08:00Drum Roll Please! Lovely followers and fellow bloggers,<br /><br />I am back! This has been a long time coming, and I am sorry for my terribly prolonged absence, but I'm glad to say I'm finally getting back on track. I know my disappearance was abrupt and I'm sorry I left everyone without a reason behind my hiatus. I took the time off to really reevaluate what I want in life. Luckily blogging made the cut for my future endeavors! I'd like to begin my "new" blogging career with nothing other than an outfit post!<br /><br />Here is an outfit I wore the other day...<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Ydp5hFKeuEo/UogS8cC875I/AAAAAAAADRQ/dx2NRlMIzx8/s1600/IMG_1729.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Ydp5hFKeuEo/UogS8cC875I/AAAAAAAADRQ/dx2NRlMIzx8/s1600/IMG_1729.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">{Boots: Dr. Martens -- Dress: Forever 21 -- Jacket: Modcloth -- Cap: H&amp;M}</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Zc8FD-8l6s0/UogS8x5JUrI/AAAAAAAADRg/Uw5FeAV9EAE/s1600/IMG_1754.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Zc8FD-8l6s0/UogS8x5JUrI/AAAAAAAADRg/Uw5FeAV9EAE/s1600/IMG_1754.jpg" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-48wSOVKCTyg/UogS8UA04AI/AAAAAAAADRc/AK-tniD4d1U/s1600/IMG_1693.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-48wSOVKCTyg/UogS8UA04AI/AAAAAAAADRc/AK-tniD4d1U/s1600/IMG_1693.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GJ6WF3DNZEY/UogS83MzeUI/AAAAAAAADRY/hTCzAGD5W-s/s1600/IMG_1751.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GJ6WF3DNZEY/UogS83MzeUI/AAAAAAAADRY/hTCzAGD5W-s/s1600/IMG_1751.jpg" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BqIhtU1DdeE/UogS8WMCjgI/AAAAAAAADRM/Rsu47UwXqb4/s1600/IMG_1716.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BqIhtU1DdeE/UogS8WMCjgI/AAAAAAAADRM/Rsu47UwXqb4/s1600/IMG_1716.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div>This outfit has really been my go to over the past few months as the weather got chillier and the leaves began to fall.
