Today is the first day of spring break, so I decided to do some spring cleaning. That’s what normal college kids do on spring break, right? This week I have absolutely nothing going on so I vow to shoot and post every single day. I vow it.
Anyway, these are just small things that I like. Afternoon light, lightweight cardigans, and matches, I guess. (Hint, I just thought they looked pretty)
Spring Break Forever, baby
As you may have read, I am heading back east in two weeks. As you may have seen on the news, the east coast is essentially just one great big heap on snow now. Considering it has been a beautiful 75 degrees and sunny here in the Bay, I have to start mentally preparing myself for temperatures such as, oh I don’t know, 7. SEVEN. SEPT. Urgh, Canada.
I gathered a roundup of clothes (thanks Pinterest) that may actually keep me from freezing while maintaining a certain amount of style. Here’s hoping I can emulate them!
I pushed my new bangs to the side, winged my eye-liner, and dusted off my red lipstick and BA-BOOM. It’s like we’re twins right? Man, this whole red lipstick thing is hard work though. You can kinda see how is smeared past my actual lips in the photo below. That picture also made me question whether or not I should get my eyebrows shaped. Pretty eye opening stuff, amiright?
Cuz darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream,
It is super windy. Windy and dry and most importantly cold. See, I thought I left this kind of weather back in Chicago, but, oh, I guess I was wrong. Well, I guess it does give me the opportunity to wear my mom’s super old shearling coat and you know how I feel about shearling. Now let me air some grievances: modeling and playing photographer at the same time is ridiculously hard. Seriously, half of these damn pictures made me look all long faced and forlorn. The things I do for this blog, I swear.
So, you know those night? Those nights where your hanging with your girlfriends and one of them insists on watching “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and your like, yo, I’m just tryna be artsy here. And so you decide to dress up your other friend and take pictures of her? You don’t know those nights? How strange, I thought everyone has them.
Thanks for being my doll, Sam.
I pretty much ignore all those “Gift Guide/Wish List for Her/The Only Time You Can Justify Buying $50 Soaps” blog posts. I think when gift giving you should personalize, not just buy really nice, expensive, but ultimately generic presents. Now, with that said (it was weighing on me), this is my personal wish list. I email my mom these links and she gets the general idea of the type of things I want for Christmas. It’s inspirational! Or something. Basically I just really like to online shop, and this justifies it.
1. Fringed Kimono Jacket- Zara ($59.90)
2. Black Arizona- Birkenstock ($89.95)
3. Transport Tote- Madewell ($168.00)
4. Wayfarer- Ray-Ban ($155.00)
5. Penguin Play Pajama Top- Madewell ($88)
6. Ultimate Leather Jacket- Madewell ($528)
But really, all I want for Christmas is you.
A couple months ago, I saw this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere. At first I was a bit adverse to the look, I mean such a bold color with no makeup to make less severe? Would not look good. But then this nude face look started popping up everywhere, but namely JCrew. And I thought, hey, I’m stylish. I can look like a JCrew model, or at at least copy their makeup.
I also braided my hair to give it some waveee. But I really liked the end result! Minimal makeup for lyfe <3.
Three weeks till Christmas!
