I guess you could say I’ve been living in this sweater and these booties the past few weeks. This spring-ish weather calls for a sweater (almost) every day and these cutout booties give my outfits just enough edge to go around. This skirt, though, is something a little out of my comfort zone. As a girl with a long torso, I live (and NEED to live) in high waisted everything, so usually, drop-waists are a no-no. But the crop top/floral drop-waist/sweater/booties combination was JUST right (and perfect for a girls night out).

And p.s. can we talk about this borderline stalker photo my friend took from my bedroom window of my sister taking photos for my blog? Now I understand what people think when they drive by our house and stare…

She Was Number One

When I saw that I was the number ONE blogger of the day (for three days straight) on Teen Vogue’s Fashion Click I could not contain my excitement. I also couldn’t stop thinking about that one Spongebob episode about the drink cup hat with a #1 on it… “He was number one!”. Knowing I was number one put me in a sporty mood. Whenever I think of winning something or being number one I think of sports competitions and games; this sporty influence fits in perfectly with this spring’s athletic trend. Trust me, you won’t be seeing me sporting Nike mid-calves with heels any time soon, but my Varsity jacket will be making more appearances. Don’t forget to vote for me and bring me back to the top 100!

Maybe next year! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and I hope you come check out my blog! Thank you Megan for having me on your blog!

Prom is one of those events that goes on and on and on… (As well as Ring Day… BUT CAN WE ALL APPRECIATE MY RING). I mean, there is pre-prom, the drive to prom, the actual prom, after prom; it’s basically never ending. While I have 61 days to go until my prom, my friend Julia’s prom was last night! I went to pre-prom aka a picture extravaganza and was officially put in charge of her phone. Boy did I take a lot of pictures (including a selfie or two). I got to test out my new polaroid and break in these gorgeous shorts. As you know by now, high waisted/printed anything with pockets are my weakness, and these fit all of my needs. I guess it’s another sign that LA is the place to be for college.

If you went/go to an all girls school you know there are traditions upon traditions. Ring day is possibly the only thing Juniors look forward to at my school. In the midst of crunch time for AP classes and the start of the third (and final) trimester of school, we girls get a whole day to ourselves. It is a day filled with class bonding, speeches, and, most importantly, our senior class rings. Engraved with our graduation year and our initials, these rings will keep us girls in each others’ minds as we set off in different paths for college. But for now, we have these lovely ring warmers and lots (and lots) of food.

Cheers to the class of ’15 (and a special nod to those who asked if this outfit would be on T&T).

Song of the day: “Best Day Of My Life” by American Authors, quite appropriate if I do say so myself.

First of all, I officially apologize for the absence. Trust me, I’m alive. My excuses are great, but one HUGE event (to which I wore this outfit) I’m not allowed to share. “”Secrets, secrets are no fun,”” I know I know, but trust me, it’s worth waiting. My first excuse is my trip to California. A short stay, days loaded with college visits and jet lag were not great combinations for squeaking photography time out my my sister… Next, I was bombarded with work ( I know, a typical Junior year excuse, but really…). And then next, this thing I can’t talk about…

Well, for this mystery event, I tried to wear my best. “Something that describes my personal style”, they told me. My go-to high-waisted jeans and booties came in handy and the rest (surprisingly) came together some time around 6am. Oh, and those earrings? They accidentally walked off set with me… oops.

ἀταραξία – ataraxia

DSCN2054

ἀταραξία (my new favorite word) – a lucid state of robust tranquility, characterized by ongoing freedom from distress and worry. I’ve felt pretty ataraxic (if that’s even a word) so far on this vacation. Lounging on the beach, waking up without an alarm, going out to eat, it’s been perfect. Last night we went out for Italian (which is ironic because it was in Italian class that I learned about Araraxia) and it was probably the first time in my life I’ve had homemade pasta. It was heavenly.

I’m not usually one to wear braided crowns (in fact, this is the first time it actually worked out (beachy wet hair is the trick)) but I felt it was necessary with this gorgeous dress. With the intricate back, an up-do was imperative, so a braided crown it was. And can we talk about the print on this dress? I’m a sucker for tribal anything, but this was different. Elephants, floral, paisley? What more do you need. Just a warning, but you’ll definitely be seeing this dress a lot.
