Back On the Grind












Well, I started 11th grade today. This summer feels like it lasted two weeks, or is it just me? Well everybody freaks out about their First Day Of School Outfit, I usually like to wear something comfy that shows my style but doesn't look like I'm trying too hard. So boom-a dress. A big, comfy, rosy dress that I bought at H&M a few weeks ago. I originally bought it in my usual size, but I went back three times to exchange it for bigger sizes until I was finally content with the level of slouchiness. And of course, my Docs. These babies are going with me to my deathbed. I wore some bright pink socks to add a pop of color, I really love pink and navy together and these socks seemed perfect. As for accessories, I stuck with my usual bracelet, gold studs, and skull necklace. 
This outfit was a perfect beginning to Junior Year. I keep hearing that 11th grade is the hardest, and I'm taking on a lot of extracurricular stuff this year along with a zero period, but I am totally ready to absolutely slay 11th grade. So many girls say "this is the year I'm gonna get a hot boyfriend" "this is the year I'm going to parties" blah blah blah. This is MY year to study hard, do well, and kick some serious butt. But a boyfriend would be cool too.

Concrete Jungle









Helloooo. I took these photos about a week ago and I wasn't really planning on posting them (I was running out of daylight so these pictures are fuzzy and not great) but I feel like it's been a while since I posted. I found this shirt at a Goodwill and cut it into a crop top as usual, and for this outfit I paired it with my navy J.Crew skirt. I love this top because New York is absolutely my dream city, and in the future I will live there in a tiny cute apartment. For some reason I never wear skirts in Summer, I usually wear dresses or my shorts and a t-shirt. Weird. Topped it off with a hodgepodge of accessories, and the rest is history. 
I'm thinking of doing a back to school necessities post. Would that be something you guys would care about? Yes? No? Maybe? Sound off.

Ain't No Rest For the Wicked












Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I've been extremely busy lately, but the things that are keeping me busy are absolutely wonderful and I have nothing to complain about. Except school, I'm not very excited about that. I went through registration this week, and seeing my schedule with seven periods on it is kind of a downer. But when all else fails, put on some red lipstick.  
Aaaaaannnyyywwwaaayyysss, here are my new babies. I went to the mall on Saturday and Steve Madden happened to be having a ridiculous sale, so I picked up two pairs of shoes. These awesome sandals are absolutely perfect, they match everything. I put this outfit together so that I could show them to you guys, my high waisted jeans and black crop top with Frida Kahlo necklace made sense. I honestly can't remember the last time I wore pants. 
Well now I'm sitting on the couch with Marilyn, watching Bates Motel and craving Thai tea. Life is sweet. 
In case I don't post for a few days, have a great week! Remember to stay positive through anything that might happen to you, and be kind to everyone you come across. Talk to you soon...

(And I Wear Glasses)











Whaaat does this shirt say? Yep, it says what you think. And I'm in love. I went to the Mike Kelley exhibit at the Little Tokyo MOCA with my aunt and the second that I saw this on canvas, I knew I had to find it on a t-shirt. And sure enough, guess what was waiting for me in the gift shop?!? 
I paired it with my American Eagle shorts that have taken me through about three summers now. Topped off with my Olivia+Joy bag and surprise surprise, beatle boots. 
I'm kind of drawn to controversial stuff (remember my "You Slut" sweater?) but I really don't buy things just because they attract double-takes, I buy things simply based on whether or not they make me happy. And I swear, every single time I even think about this shirt I start laughing uncontrollably. The trick is to WEAR the clothes and OWN them, act like there's absolutely nothing strange about wearing a shirt that says "Pants Shitter".

White Teeth Teens













Hello all! I feel like I haven't posted in a while, it's only been two days right? The past two days have had weird, drizzly weather and absolutely beautiful sunsets. I felt like an Austin Powers girl in this outfit, and YES, I KNOW, I'm repeating shoes again. Fight me. 
This dress is like $7 at H&M and it's so comfy I want to go back and buy more. I wore it with some new shark teeth earrings, my radical boots, and huge hat. Basically head-to-toe H&M. I'm taking my drivers test this week, probably Wednesday, so send some good driving-vibes my way and I'll be super grateful. Have a fabulous week, talk to you soon!
