My Daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ

This is what I wore to school today! And this is what this girl in my Cosmetology said to me about it..
Girl: Hey, are you going to college?
Me: Yeah!
Girl: What are you going to do for a living?
Me: I'm not really sure.
Girl: You're not?
Me: No, I really have no idea!
Girl: Oh. You look like you would!

Looking like you've got it all figured out > Figuring it all out

Poker face..

OPI's Ate Berries in the Canaries

Blazer - Vtg Pendleton
Sweater - Papaya
Top - Fred Meyer
Jeans - TJMaxx
Booties - TJMaxx
Ring - Unknown
This blazer was my mom's from when she worked at Pendleton Woolen Mill like 30 years ago. I admit to ripping out the shoulder pads, but you can't even tell cause the shoulders are still huge.

This is my favorite song right now. I've listened to it 70 times in the past two days. I know it's Lady Gaga, but she's hot as a man and I'm going to go listen to it for the 71st time now..

House of Cards

This is what I wore today...you can tell I'm a little lacking in creativity!



OPI's Your Villa or Mine



Top - Mom's
Jeans - Vigoss via Consignment

Flats - Consignment
Earrings - Forever21
Ring - Gifted (Thanks Connie!)
I'm having one of those weeks where nothing in my closet goes with eachother...so I turn to other's closets to help. What? It happens..
My sweatshirts usually get a lot of use during times like these. Times of un-creativity.

I haven't worn these earrings since prom!


Speaking of dances (awesome segway), Homecoming is coming up next month! At my school, it's a Sadie Hawkins dance. If I were single, this would be a problem for me.
But it's not.
However, I'm not very keen on the idea. The Homecoming dance is always in our cafeteria...and I'm not paying $10 to stand around and listen to Pitbull for three hours in the cafeteria. I mean can you blame me?

Anyways,
I promise to be more creative with the clothes that I put on my body...look at me being proactive!

Hello friends! This is what I wore to school the other day. Everything has been so crazy lately. Homecoming week is coming up (so much earlier than usual), homework is starting to accumulate, and I just lost my Words With Friends winning streak. Sad times, people. But guess what comes back on Tuesday??

Are You Brave Enough to Let Me See Your Peacock?

This is what I wore today...yes, that is a dress under my shirt. Creative layering for the win!



Top - Forever21 via Consignment
Dress - TJMaxx
Shoes - Naturalizer via TJMaxx
Flower - Gifted
Happy fall, everyone! I'm saying that now because it's the first day we've had rain here for months...and that pretty much means fall is here.
I'm the last person to say this, but can it please stay warmer for just a little longer? I haven't worn my summer clothes to death yet!!

This I Believe




I'm not a Christian, but I would highly recommend a daily dose of Jesus to anyone who needs to the reminder that there's something more out there.

Mustard, Becky, and Bobs

This is what I wore to school yesterday:
Her name's Myrtle. She has three legs.
 
Top - Kmart
Skirt - Forever21
Shoes - Naturalizer via TJMaxx
Belt - Kohls
Earrings - Charlotte Russe

So who else has been watching Project Runway?

I've been watching it every week (just waiting for Glee to make it's return), and by now I am totally invested. My dad's girlfriend is friends with Becky, who just got eliminated last week.


As much as I wanted the best for Becky because someone I know knows her, she deserved to go.
Viktor is definitely  my favorite right now. Anthony-Ryan who? I also like Anya and Kimberly, but I don't like Burt or his attitude. Laura seems too mean, although she is a great designer, and I think Oliver and Bryce will be next on the chopping block. As for Joshua M., I think he's an amazing designer, but he needs to pull it together because his ability to design can only get him so far when he fights with all the other competitors.

Along with becoming obsessed with this show, I have become obsessed with Heidi Klum's lob. (Long+Bob=Lob.) Maybe it's because Jennifer Aniston recently "lobbed" off her hair, too, but it makes me want to cut mine.
Check out these "Gobs of Bobs" (via beauty.about.com)

Are you convinced yet?
Yeah, so am I.

A Drop in the Bucket

This is what I wore on the first day of senior year!

If you're wondering what's on my hand and my foot, it's henna!

Top - TJMaxx
Shorts - Old Navy
Shoes - Rocketdog via TJMaxx
Necklace - Charlotte Russe

Today was probably the worst first day I've had so far. But I'm not going to complain. I'll just say that I went to half the classes I was supposed to and started the day off after crying in the bathroom. Doesn't it sound like an inspiring underdog story from the '90s, minus eating lunch alone in the bathroom? I figured as much.

Anyways,
I remember what I wore on the first day of school two years ago. Ready? A black, long-sleeved v-neck, bootcut jeans, and black flats. For one thing, it definitely wasn't 96° that day, like it was today. For another thing, was I really that boring? I mean, really? I probably even had a backpack. Are you shuddering?
I'm just happy that my style has evolved in the past two years. I know it's not hard to step up from that, but I'm proud nonetheless. It's always interesting to look back on where you've been. I'm definitely not the plain-jane I used to be. Just think of where I'll be in another two years!!

If It Takes Forever, Forever It'll Be

 
Since school is about to start, Stephen and I decided to go on a date to California Pizza Kitchen (dressed to the nines). This is our day in pictures:
 



That's right. It's a sundial.
  
California Pizza Kitchen? I think so.
 
 
Dress - Consignment
Shoes - Naturalizer via TJMaxx
Bag - Bueno via TJMaxx

Praise Jesus!
We got this pizza at CPK that looked like it had a whole salad on top of it. It was truly amazing. Oh, and if you go there and they ask you if you want a free different kind of crust, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
After we got home, we did Henna tattoos. Henna is fun, but after about two days, I start to miss looking at naked skin and I start to notice how bad the design really is ('cause I drew it...)
Now that school is starting (two days), expect to see more outfit posts on here. Now that I have somewhere to go, I'll have a reason to actually get dressed!

Happy back to school!
