dressing room deductions


I stand in the small dressing room, my eyes surveying the clingy cotton
subconsciously analyzing every millimeter of my torso.

Third dressing room of the day, and the walls begin to choke me.
I'd been happy with nothing.

It all looked bad.
on me.
But not on the hanger.

It took a full 5.789 seconds to deduct 437 negative things about
the shirt
my 'bingo wings'
abs
hair
my life.

So I hung those two cotton shirts up on their plastic hangers
with full knowledge that feelings lie.
thoughts lie.
the mirror lies.

And I grabbed my purse and got out of there.

Today wasn't a great day to be adventurous.
And I'm okay with that.

I'm okay as long as I know that
feelings can be liars.
thoughts can be liars.
And the mirror can be a liar.

fashion friday: cool spring dress






It's been so sunny and warm here in Washington this past week! I've been enjoying wearing tank tops and flip flops. Also, I have decided I just might wear dresses all summer. They are cool, can be dressed up or down. Plus, it is way easier then picking out a top and bottom and making sure they 'go' perfectly. 

So what about you- dresses or shorts?

March Favorites


March: endless shows and school sums up March for me. Here are my favorites form the month!

movie// I would say my absolute favorite movie this month would be The Italian Job. It's one of those classic sleepover flicks that contains all the elements of a good story. It goes well with ice cream.

book// One of my school books was Prince Caspian, and it was so fun to re-read! I originally read it a long time ago with my older sister and I have always related to Lucy in all the Narnia books. However, this time around I found myself gravitating towards Susan more. Her struggles with fear and finding herself resonated with me:-)

writing// I did quite a bit of writing in March. We have a big editorial competition where I take classes, so I was busy working on that. I also spent quite a bit of time working on narrative writing, which was interesting. All the pieces I did for my English class in March where pretty heavy and deep, so it's been difficult getting out of that head space.

face// March has not been kind to my face. I've had two (two!!!) pimples right underneath my eyebrow. It is the most awkward place/thing ever. My favorite product would have to be my EOS lip balm because my lips have been so dry. Basic, I know.

makeup// I've started using the L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in carbon black, and I really like it so far! I'm am a total mascara junkie, and I have high expectations for my eyelashes. So far, so good.

clothes// I've been having trouble transitioning into a more 'springy' look this year- I'm not ready to let all of my boots and sweaters go! My most worn item for March is definitely my black skinny jeans. I wear them alll the time.

 blog// It's been fun discovering lots of new blogs this month. It's really hard to pick one favorite, but I would have to say Kate who blogs at the goodness revolt has stood out to me. Her writing is so beautiful (like seriously, go check out this post right now) and I love the verity in what she writes.

post// Gahh, again this is so hard because I've read so much good stuff! Buuuutttt, this post (rich dirt) by Cally who writes at Words Passing You By is amazing. You need to go follow her right now.

 Okay readers, I need some help! I know a lot of you are avid readers who read, read, read and I am so not. Although I enjoy reading, I'm so busy and at the end of the day I just collapse. However, I need some new material, so leave your recommendations in the comments!

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?

fashion friday: November Grey





 Better late than never... right? It's been really chilly, so my sweaters and knits have been coming out. I love winter clothes for about two months, before I get tired out rotating through the same outfits over and over. I was wearing a scarf with this, and I'm not exactly sure why I'm not wearing it it the pictures....

October Favorites




I am totally into short boots, boyfriend jeans, and cozy sweaters paired with scarves. (Basically, Pinterest) I love the scarves with the sweaters because it adds a touch of class, while still staying warm and cozy.



My dance class has a Facebook group message that use to chat, communicate about schedules, ask to borrow stuff, etc. Lately, we have been sharing hilarious memes and this is my current favorite. Our new artistic director is over zealous  diligent about our attendance to classes and rehearsals, so I love this. ;-) 


White Collar is one of my all time favorite t.v. shows ever. All the seasons are on Netflix and I love it. I have held of on all the series because of those silly things called grades, but this is one that I love. I cannot say enough good things about it.

  
Food wise, plain greet yogurt with honey is my October favorite. I've been eating a lot of Tupperware contained meals with my busy schedule, and this is my go-to. The sweet honey has awesome health benefits, and paired with the tart greek yogurt, it is absolutely delicious. It's also good with fruit ;-)


Organ chi tea lattes are my most favorite non-caffeinated drink. I'm not sure if these are just a north west thing, or if the whole country has access to these delicious sips of bliss. It's basically a creamier, more vanilla-ie, chi tea latte with some other yummy spices. It's October in a cup!

fashion friday- casual fall clothes


Hey, it's October! Craziness! These pants are my new favorite (well, all new things are my new favorite.. ;) but when I went to get them on at 6:07am last week, I realized the lady forgot to take the security tag off. Annoying, especially at 6 in the morning. Now that I am binge wearing them, I'm falling in love with them.

They are the perfect addition to a cozy fall sweater, or a lighter cotton shirt.

Enjoy!
