I Always Wanted An Older Sister!

My friend Allyson went through all of her clothes and passed some down to me and Madeline and this is just one of the many things I got! I love love love this floral print dress. I love getting hand-me downs, but I didn't grow up receiving any because I'm the eldest. But Allyson has become like an older sister to me and for that I'm very grateful. Its fun to have pretend older sisters that give you clothes!

I'm in LOVE with this pattern! So fun and summery!

Dress- Allyson's 
Sandals- Saltwater Sandals via ModCloth
Glasses- Ray-Ban

Let Us Go Then You and I

My favorite English teacher used to start every class with saying, "Let us go then you and I..." Its a line to a poem, but for some reason it just popped into my head and I felt like starting this post with that. 

On to the flower ninja story. Sometimes Madeline and I do funny things and go on secret adventures. Like yesterday when we stole flowers from trees in people's yards. The above is our glorious result...a bunch of limbs of trees stuck in a vase. Lovely.

Today I'm wearing one of my favorite skirts ever from Anthro. I don't suppose we could call this a full outfit post, but oh well! I've got people to see, plays to read, and songs to sing. I'll come back to the blog with more exciting things later. (Well, I hope I have exciting things to write otherwise, I'll be posting more weird half-baked posts like this one.)

Music Mondays!

I love me some banjos. And bluegrass. I've been trying to figure out where I got my love of bluegrass music and I think it comes from those Saturday nights when we listened to Prairie Home Companion growing up. On our way to my grandparent's house we always listened to PHC and a bluegrass special on npr. My parents raised me right.

My favorite things?

I don't know why but lately I've seen so many beautiful and inspirational things on my pinterest these days and I just wanted to share them even though I normally do this post later in the week...

Here are some things I want to watch...

I've been craving a Wes Anderson marathon all day long!

Here are things I want to eat...

Here are places I want to go...

 Here are things I want to make...

Here are things I want to decorate my someday house with...

Here are things I want to wear...

And finally things I want to listen to...

Bluegrass all the way.

Art Rocks!

The other day I was wearing a dress and someone asked, "What's the occasion?" The answer was that there was no occasion. Actually I normally wear a dress or a skirt, so the question caught me off guard a bit because anyone who has seen me for a least a week would know that I have some aversion to jeans and pants. But anyways, I got to thinking that maybe people think that I don't ever look casual. I think my version of casual is different from everyone else's. Casual to me is skirt+ tights, but for most that's "dressy." So today I put together a casual look. Take that onlookers. I'm not that weird. 

I don't wear a lot of t-shirts, but this is one of my faves. I think its really clever. And I adore it.
Outfit Details:
Sweater- Urban Outfitters
Shirt- Bryce McCloud (a Nashville artist)
Shorts- Urban Outfitters
Shoes- Keds
I also broke out the trusty Keds that match the carpet that Madeline and I put down in our room. I don't know why, but it amuses me so that they are the same color! I guess, I really am weird haha.

Blah Blah Blah

You know those days when everything you put on just looks boring and blah and gross? Well, today is one of those days. Actually lately I've just been feeling sort of blah about a lot of things. Mostly its because Madeline is gone this weekend, so I'm spending copious amounts of time by myself in our little room...thinking. Sometimes I just look at this blog and think about what it could be and it kind of makes me want to cry. I have so many ideas, I just can't do them for many reasons I could list off for you like "I don't have a camera" or "I don't have money for craft supplies" or "I don't know how to change the layout of my blog or even the design." I just have so many thoughts about how much better this blog could be, I just can't really carry them out and that sort of breaks my heart. And sometimes I feel like why should I even bother posting on here any more. Are my outfits even that great? No. I just wear what I want to wear. I don't think they are exciting or showcase nice pieces of clothing from nice stores. I'm a college student. A poor girl. But I have style and I like showcasing it, even if nobody cares but me. But sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. 

Sorry, I just needed to vent.

My Favorite Things!

Here are my pinterest faves ya'll!

Saltwater Sandals! I got my pretty red ones and they haven't left my feet since.

This is the CUTEST dress I have ever seen!

Dream bicycle. I could see myself riding around on this little beauty.

Oh hiiiiiiiiiiii.

This is so accurate.

Lissie is my fav. I cannot tell you how many times I've watched this video over the years. And it never gets old.

Music Mondays!

Have I ever mentioned that Death Cab for Cutie is my favorite band? Maybe not. I realized that if I had to pick one band or artist to be the soundtrack to my life it would be Death Cab. Upon realizing this, I proceeded to listen to them on shuffle all day long. So come on, listen to Ben Gibbard's beautiful voice and tell me that I've made a good pick in fav band ever...

One Fine Day

I feel like every post I make these days say boring phrases such as "the weather here is fab!" or "its just so beautiful outside." And I would like to apologize for my generalizations about the weather. Lets just from now on assume that any day I don't wear tights, is a beautiful day. There, that's taken care of now onto the outfit...

Outfit Details:
Sweater- Old Navy
Dress- Forever 21
Shoes- Saltwater Sandals via ModCloth

Today has been the official test run of the lovely Saltwater Sandals and its true love. What a fun summer sandal! Anyways, today I spent my day at church, grabbing coffee with girlfriends, and catching up on homework. Later tonight I'm going to watch Madeline's show. Its actually a dress rehearsal, but I wanted to see it twice just for kicks! 

Okay, funny thing. Well actually its not that funny, its just that I have ideas brewing in my head and I want to share them here. So for Cru we've had lots of mixers/parties and usually they are themed. So, my friends and I thought about how cool it would be if we had an old school theme. Like we could play music from the 50's and 60's and everyone could dress up and dance. I think its a brilliant idea. I mean, it sounds like my kind of party. Although, I guess that's my life every day...but it would be fun to share with everyone else! Just a few sunday thoughts from little ole me. Hope everyone had a delightful weekend!

Justin Timberlake Is My Weakness

Sorry its been sort of quiet on the blog lately, but I will say that I have been having the time of my life! I spent this whole weekend with the greatest girlfriends in the world. Short road trips, shopping, yummy food and coffee, music, and movies with Justin Timberlake. And to top the entire day off--I got my saltwater sandals in the mail today! So excited for summer and warmer weather now! Now this is what I would call a happy post.

When You Feel Just Like A Tourist

The weather here is absolutely divine! It doesn't feel like spring--it feels like a hot summer's day instead. So I took the opportunity to wear some new summer clothes that I bought over spring break.

Outfit Details:
Shirt- JcPenny
Skirt- Forever 21
Belt- Forever 21
Flats- Old Navy

How many circle skirts does a gal need? In my opinion, a lot. Circle skirts are my weakness for sure!

This shirt really does not photograph well at all. But its gorgeous! This whole outfit makes me think of sight seeing in Europe or something. I feel like if I were to go on a vacation right now, this is exactly what I'd wear. Something about it is very touristy and I can't place my finger on what it is exactly. 

And in case any one is interested in what the soundtrack of my day is...

I would post the actual music video, but it is my least favorite music video of all time. Death Cab kept promoting it as this exciting live music video and frankly, it just wasn't very good. Quite the disappointment. At least the song is delightful...

Tricked Ya!

You know those days where your classes suck, but you just don't care because its perfect outside and everywhere you turn you are surrounded by friends? Yeah, well that was my day. High of 80 degrees, dreadful classes, but plenty of people to see and talk to. My life. 

Outfit Details:
Shirt- H&M
Shorts- Forever 21
Flats- Old Navy

You see my beautiful burnt orange/ red shorts? Yes! These are tap shorts! My new favorite trend ever. They look like a skirt...

But they're not!!!! Fooled you! And everyone! All day long people complimented my skirt and I just smiled to myself because I know that these are in fact shorts. Which means I can run and prance about and still look completely lady-like. How delightful! Also funny thing about the top...Madeline has the same one from H&M, but her stripes are slightly smaller. And today we wore our matching tops. Yes, that's right roommate and I matched. Funny funny day y'all.
