New York

My first view of part of the skyline.

I haven't forgotten about my blog, don't worry! I have been in New York for a little over 24 hours now and I've been in class for 6 of those hours. I'm exhausted and most of my clothes haven't arrived here yet, so I'll post some outfit photos as soon as they arrive!

I think that this semester will be interesting. I'll have a lot of challenges, and a lot of things to figure out. I don't know where I want my life to go, and, as I'm officially, after today, over halfway through my college career, I should probably make an attempt at figuring that out. 

I am going job hunting tomorrow! Wish me luck!

New hairrrr

platform sandals: urban outfitters, dress (isn't it amazing?!): forever 21, bag, denim shirt and sunglasses: thrifted, jewelry: gifts, vintage

I cut my hair for the first time in over 2 years and I look like a baby and I love it so much. And I got it colored... ombre! I also love this dress... like, a lot. It's my favorite. And I have a lot of dresses. 

Also, just so you know, all of Romwe's bestselling items are currently discounted, and I can't stop drooling over them. They're going ridiculously fast, however, so click on the link below and shopppp!

Also, I'm planning on hosting a giveaway soon... so stay tuned.

dress: c/o Oasap, shoes: urbanog.com, socks: target, everything else: thrifted

Hello everyone! I will have different hair in the next outfit that I post - I'm not positive what I'm doing with it yet, but I have an appointment at 1 this afternoon! I'm nervous, I haven't cut my hair in over 2 years and I haven't colored it anything other than red in the same length of time. It should be interesting!

Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to write a nice rant again, so I'm making up for it with a few more photos than I've been posting lately. I now have to let my mom parade me around to her friends so they can see me "one last time before I leave". Okay mom, since I care a lot about seeing your friends and not my own. I suppose when you get old the only thing you have left to do is parade your children around, though. How sad that it's me she has to parade around.

Mod + Denim

bag and loafers: thrifted, dress: c/o Oasap.com, sunglasses: c/o Oasap.com, socks: ebay, earrings: thrifted

How adorable is this dress? I wore it to work and got at least 10 compliments. I absolutely love it and it fits wonderfully. 

Since school has started for many people, and is about to start for many more, I've decided to share a few of my very favorite jeans that are out there at the moment. And I hope that some of you are richer than me and can actually buy them!


drooling so much over all of these...

faux leather

dress worn as top: forever 21, faux leather skirt: forever 21, combat boots: urban outfitters, leather bag: thrifted, cross earrings: forever 21

I've been buying so much stuff from work lately, it's ridiculous. These two things, along with a faux fur leopard coat I got on sale for $15 today, are my very last forever 21 purchases before I leave for New York - I promise! 

I plan to find another retail job when I get back to the Big Apple, hopefully at an Urban Outfitters instead of Forever 21, but we'll see! I really enjoy working retail - I wasn't sure I'd like it, but I definitely do. I love the people I work with - we all have similar interests and I get along with them so well. I hope that I'll feel the same about my co-workers in my next job!

You say that they've all left you behind

shirt, shorts, belt: thrifted, hat, earrings: forever 21, boots, top: urban outfitters

Hello there,

My face is slightly less swollen, thankfully. You can still see my cheek chubbiness a tiny bit in these photos but it's mostly under control. 

I go back to New York in exactly one week. 

Also, this song makes me cry:

skirt: forever 21, combat boots: urban outfitters, crop top: h&m, acid wash shirt: thrifted, sunglasses: charming charlie

sorry I've been MIA, I got my wisdom teeth out on monday and my face is still ridiculously swollen. Unfortunately I have to go back to work today as a chipmunk. I'm preparing myself to be mocked by my coworkers through my suffering. 

I go back to New York in a little over a week. I'm nervous.

You are dreaming

satchel and sandals: ???, dress, belt, sunglasses: thrifted, blouse: forever 21, clock necklace: primark

I'm so in love with this dress. I bought it so that I could cut it up into a matching crop top/skirt set but I can't do it. It's too lovely. 

I really love this outfit. Wearing it to work today!
