For some reason, I feel like a researcher in Africa who studies elephants. I think it's the french braid + messy bangs and the oversized shirt tied in a knot. ;]

chillin' with Elvis

[shirts: thrifted; jeans: thrifted; shoes: thrifted]

Today's been a great day. I cleaned my room and my desk and now I'm relaxing, listening to music. Elvis, Johnny Cash, Regina Spektor... ♥ This evening I'm going to see a Shakespeare play. Life is good.

an audrey hepburn dress

[t-shirt:Land's End; floral shirt: Forever21; jeans: thrifted; shoes: Walmart; necklaces: thrifted/handmedown from a friend]

^I wore the shirt backwards...just for fun. I like how the v neck looks in the back and how the front(which is really the back...=p) looks like an Audrey Hepburn dress. ;]

i'll be there for you

Little cotton dresses are a must for summer. I'm trying to add to my collection right now. This one was a steal at only 5 bucks from Goodwill!

[dress/necklace: thrifted; sandals/bracelets: Walmart; vest/belt: garage sale finds]

^heehee, I made this one my Facebook profile picture...

checkered socks...

[shirt: thrifted; cardigan: Forever21; jeans: thrifted; shoes: Converse; bracelets: Walmart; wristband: made by me]

At the last second, I added this wristband to make the outfit a little more interesting. I made it from a sock a few years ago, inspired by AnnaSophia Robb's sock arm warmers in Bridge to Terabithia. Any other ASR fans out there? I love her! She's a great actress, and she wears cute clothes too. ;]

this shirt has been to more countries than I have...

[shirt: belonged to my Grandfather; jeans: Mossimo/thrifted; boots/bracelet: thrifted]

This shirt used to belong to my Grandfather while he was a marine stationed in Japan! It has a lot of history...I just love articles of clothing that have stories behind them.

[striped shirt: thrifted; floral shirt: Forever21; jeans: Target/Mossimo; necklace/bracelet: thrifted; shoes: Converse]

Yay, more pattern mixing. I paired these shirts together then just threw on the necklace cuz I was like, "hey, I've already got florals + stripes, why not add a fuschia necklace?"

what a way to make a living

I thought it would be fun to show you all what I typically wear to work.

My uniform consists of a polo shirt (yup, it's really ugly...), and apron, and a visor. These items are kept at the store, so I have to wear shirts that a polo will fit over. I generally wear t-shirts or tank tops. Skirts aren't practical, of course, so I go with jeans. Footwear has to be comfortable, as I'm on my feet for 5+ hours at a time. I often wear my Converse sneakers, but these boots are also a favorite. They're soooo comfy, even though they aren't that stylish...=p Lastly, I wear some sort of sweater/hoodie so I don't have to walk to my car in 40 degree weather, at 10 PM, in just a tank top, haha.

Well, there you have it. A simple and practical outfit that I would never wear outside of work. ;] I'm not that into simple or practical, I guess...haha.

all the colors

[shirt/skirt: thrifted; vest: garage sale; leggings: Forever21; shoes: Converse]

Wore this last week...can't remember when, haha. I have several outfits that I haven't posted. I promise I'll get them up soon!

I have an Elvis shirt and (although you can't see them) my socks have rainbow stripes. There's just something so cheery about rainbow socks. ;]

Friend Friday: Vacations!

[photo credit: my sister]

1. When it comes to packing for vacation what’s your mantra?

Stuff everything that will fit into a suitcase. It works well. =p

2. What are your must packs?

I usually bring along my art supplies so I can get a little drawing in. =D

3. What are you happy to leave behind?


4. Any packing secrets that help you get everything into one

Rolled clothes usually fit better than folded, and you get less wrinkles as well. Place small items inside shoes. Sit on the suitcase while zipping it up, haha.

5. Beach reading… what are you taking with you to read in the sand?

Sarah Dessen is amazing and fun. I just recently discovered Kristin Hannah, and wow I love her books.

Head over to Modly Chic to see the other entries!
