fashion friday- winter school clothes










I loved wearing this outfit! I felt so cute, and it was all random clothes I wouldn't normally pair together. I've been trying to wear more skirts casually, so that is where this pencil skirt came in. I debated about what top to wear, and finally settled on this loose light grey shirt with a jacket. And it was cold so I wore tights and boots:-)

Q: Whats your favorite way to mix up the clothes you already own?

Infinity Dreams Tag//Random things about me



Grace from Totally Graced (yeah, go check her blog out!) was so kind and tagged me for the Infinity Dreams Tag. She was cruel and unusual with her questions, but being the kind soul I am, I will persevere. Here we go!

Discribe your best friend in one sentence
  - A stunningly beautiful girl who is really me in a different body.

How do you like to wear your hair? 
  - I have four hairstyles: up, down, ballet bun, and homeless. My hair is so weird (my sisters say it's hormonal because  you can never predict what it's going to do. It might be really curly. Maybe wavy, maybe fluffy and straight(ish). You never know) Usually I pull in back because it takes less work and it's going to get sweaty in a bun later.

What song lyrics describe your life? 
  - Gosh, this is a hard one! So many good songs I've been listening to. I don't know if this counts, but I really have been loving Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin. I'm not a big fan of Chris Tomlin, and his songs are soooooo overplayed, but this one... I don't know. I've just been meditating on it.

  
Worst book you've ever read? 
  - Oh without a doubt the "Trojan War". It. Was. Terrible.

How do you want to spend the rest of your life? 
  - (Grace, how am I going to narrow this down?????)  I want to spend my life loving people deeply and personally. Loving Jesus with everything I am. I want to stay focused on what is true. I want to spend the rest of my life using every gift, every idea, every passion for the God of the universe. I want to be vulnerable in my failure and hurt. I want to spend the rest of my life dancing, raising children, and pushing myself past every limit. I want to look back and know that I have been used to my fullest extent.

Best class you have ever taken?
  - I'm liking chemistry even though it is totally trying to kick my butt. I liked the human anatomy part of biology. I like my English class. I don't think I can really pick one!

Who has most impacted your life? 
  -Oh goodness, another hard one. Really, all my dance teachers have impacted me so greatly. They have pushed me and guided me. They have taught me big and important life lessons, and helped me discover joy in my body. My closest friends have impacted me deeply. They have walked me through dark times, and been listening ears with wise advice. My older sister has been my partner in crime (well, really the brain of the crime...) she has impacted me in more ways then I could ever imagine. But if I really had to pick, it would be my parents. They have taught me to learn, to persevere, to be the first to apologize. They have taught me about being a good friend, a good student, and a leader. Mainly, they have impacted me by example.
Whew. That got long and rambley. (and yes, I know you just skimmed that)

What inspired you to start a blog? 
   - Beginning in middle school, I have loved reading blogs. I like the format, the different writing styles, the content. When Jayna moved, I begged her to blog with me. And that is how Letters to Jayna was born.

Can you cook? What is your favorite recipe? 
   - I pretend I can cook. I can follow recipes, but not cook cook. And oh gosh, I have a lot. I just made white chicken chili which was really good. I also have good recipes for homemade granola bars and french silk chocolate pie.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
   - This is so cliche, but I want to live in New York at some point. Not forever, but for a while:) I mainly want to travel a lot!

What is your favorite movie quote? 
   - I have lots, but this was the first that came to mind


I now nominate:
Joanny @ Joanny White
Here are your questions:
  1. White, milk, or dark chocolate? (and there is definitely a wrong answer here)
  2. What are you reading right now?
  3. How do you de-stress? 
  4. What is something small that brings you joy?
  5. What drew you to blogging? 
  6. What are you favorite kinds of blog posts to read? 
  7. Do you still shave your legs in the winter? (I'm actually really cirrus about this one...)
  8. What song(s) are you currently obsessed with? 
  9. What is a quote that perfectly describes your life at the moment?
  10. What is one thing that makes you you? 
Have fun!

Hairy Legs are the Fruit of Singleness

I had a life-changing moment today.

I went to roll up my tights between dance classes and I realized I had the legs of a chimpanzee.
"No," you think to yourself as you read this. "She's just a giant exaggerator."
I beg to differ.

I showed it to one of my sweet and sensitive friends who promptly replied with "Oh wow. Wow."
Not, "Oh, it's not that bad," or the classic, "I could only see it if I looked supper closely."
No. 
"Oh wow."

I almost send a picture to my friend, only to realized it is almost a half inch long.
A freaking half inch long.
In my defense, we have been out of shaving cream and I refuse to use soap to shave my legs.
buttttt........I also absolutely detest shaving me legs so yeah

And then the thought occurred to me.
"What if I'm single because I currently have hairy legs?"
"What if I have no valentine because my calves could be mistaken for those of a woolly mammoth?"

As the panic rushed through my veins, I assured myself that I'm not single because I currently have hairy legs. And although my chimpanzee legs may be a bit frightening, I don't think my hairy legs are the cause of my lack-of-boyfriend.
They are the fruit of my lack-of-boyfriend.


"What?!?!?!? Well shave those legs you single Pringle," you may say as Febuary 14th quickly approaches. "That will get you ready to mingle in no time!"

But hey, you know what else is the fruit of my singleness?
Extreme chocolate consumption.
Decent grades.
Close girlfriends.
The ability to watch all the rom-com and musicals I want.

 
  This Valentines day I'm celebrating the amazing love of Jesus, chocolate, and hairy legs.
Care to join me?

fashion Friday: winter walks


 


 
My friend Elizabeth and I went on an adventure, I because I was having blogger guilt, I begged her to snap a few pictures. I feel like I look five months pregnant in a few of these, but whatever. #confidence
 
The main reason I haven't had many fashion Friday posts lately is because I have been wearing my pajamas. Until the absolute last moment. Sooooo yeah.
