Blue Christmas

 Macy's sweater, American Eagle jeans and necklace, Target loafers, Cotton On purse

After a month of anticipation it's always an odd feeling when Christmas is over. I do however, get to hold on to it a little longer as our tree is still up and the family is in town until Sunday! 

It snowed last Friday but the rain and temperatures in the high forties melted it away. This is what allowed me to be comfortable in jeans and a sweater while downtown with my mom and sisters! 

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

Happy Holiday Season

 thrifted top and jacket, Cotton On purse, American Eagle jeans and boots, Urban Outfitter rings

Happy December 1st! I am so excited for the holiday season I can't even explain! Idealy it would have snowed while my friend Petra and I were having coffee downtown, but I suppose the gorgeous rainy days we've been having will do for now.

To-do List

All photos via Pinterest

This a compilation of a few of my favorite photos right now. It's also a kind of list of things I'm hoping to do soon. I haven't been thrifting in forever and I always love flipping through the records. Also, I need to get out more. I've been cooped up in the house with all my school work! What's on your to-do list?

Basically, today was wonderful. Rookie was having an event in Seattle to celebrate the launch of Yearbook Two! I've been a fan of Tavi Gevinson (the founder and editor of Rookie) for so long it was AMAZING to meet her! It was so inspiring to be in the middle of a bunch of stylish, creative teenagers who love this magazine as much as I do! Seriously, an eyeball painted onto a studded denim jacket! A little bouquet of flowers tucked into a little leather bag! These are my kind of people!

My friends Brooke and Jenna came with me and we instantly befriended Hailey (second to last photo). A super stylish, wonderful girl from Canada who we sat next to. I wish it would've lasted all day so I could have met all the cool people there! In short, Rookie, YOU RULE!

On a side note, November 7th marked the three year anniversary for this here blog! I went back to my first posts on this momentous occasion and while stalking myself I was amazed by how much support and love I've gotten from my followers! Blogging is such a joy for me and I just wanted to thank everyone for being so wonderful!

Autumn in the City

 thrifted top, jacket, and jeans, Madden Girl boots, American Eagle necklace

I can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday! Tea at Roy Street Coffee and walking and shopping around Capitol Hill with the lovely Greta from La Vie de Greta! This girl and I have so much in common I swear we could just sit and talk all day! We went on a walk with no real destination in mind and every street was framed with beautiful leaves! 

And guys, I got rings! As I mentioned in my last post I've been searching for some and I found a gorgeous set at Urban today. I will definitely be including those in my next outfit post!

So far I've spent this week working through a persistent cold and clouded skies. Thankfully, progress was noticed today in both areas!

I always have a lengthy wishlist going in my head but recently there have been three things in particular I've been looking for.
          Rings. I've never been much of a ring person but I've been seeing so many adorable ones I can't help but want to start my collection!
          A long sleeve dress. Out of all my dresses not one is long sleeve! It'd be perfect for fall and winter layering!
          A cozy scarf. Yes, I do have quite a few scarves already but can a girl really have too many?

Autumn and Apples go Hand in Hand

 Urban Outfitters top and sunglasses, thrifted shirt and jeans, TOMS shoes

Sunday apple picking, Monday apple pie; last week started off right! I wish you could all taste these delicious things! As for my outfit, I'm always grabbing simple pieces from my wardrobe but spending the afternoon at an orchard just begs for jeans and a chambray shirt.

Adding Layers

Forever 21 cardigan, H&M top, thrifted shorts, bag, and belt, Target tights, Urban Outfitters shoes

I forgot how much longer the caption for these photos get in the fall! You know summer is over when you're no longer wearing shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals everyday! Ah well, though I will miss it summer, I am so excited for the layering, hot drinks, and coziness that come with fall! 

I am very happy to say that these photos were taken by the lovely Greta from La Vie die Greta! Last Thursday I went to Journalism Day at the University of Washington as a field trip; Greta, just so happened to be going as well! We went to one of the electives together then snapped these photos on the beautiful campus! I can't wait to meet up with this girl again! 

Have a wonderful first day of fall everyone!!

Sweater Season sweater, Urban Outfitters jeans, thrifted sandals

Today was spent drinking a chai latte, eating a pumpkin muffin, and running errands in the brisk air; all in this perfect summer to fall transition sweater! I'm really hoping I can get out and find some new sweaters to live in this fall. There's just something about cozying up in that perfect sweater...

Flower Child

 Model: Brooke   •   Photography and photo editing: Me   •   Styling: Brooke and I

I'm always looking to experiment with photography and photo editing. My favorite way to do this is with photo shoots. Despite the simplicity of this outfit, my friend Brooke and I took a while getting ready! The light was quickly fading once we actually started shooting; however, I like the mood the darkness gives the photos.

And So It Begins

Converse, thrifted top, belt, purse, and jeans, Kohl's jacket

I decided to use the first football game of the season to break out my new jacket. I can't even tell you how long I've been longing for a jacket like this! I can see the beginnings of autumn weather and I can't wait to be able to throw this jacket over everything ! The closer fall comes the more excited I'm getting. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, sweaters, and rainy days are calling my name.

On Lockdown

All photos via Pinterest

I've been trying to put a bit more effort into fixing up my hair. I'm used to spending the whole morning picking an outfit and leaving next to no time for hair, makeup, and sadly, breakfast (Last year I'd eat a bowl of cereal exactly two minutes before I ran out the door to the bus).

Here's a collection of my hair inspirations as of late. I've looking to experiment with my locks and I'm in love with all things bows, barrettes, ponytails, braids, and buns. I think a lot of the reason is all these hairstyles are quick and easy but they allow me to vary from day to day. And accessories just make every hairstyle a bit more fun!

The Perfect Print

Urban Outfitters top and shoes, thrifted shorts

Add polka dots to any outfit and I feel it's instantly put together. Add polka dot cut outs to any sandal and you instantly have the perfect shoe. 

Here's a close up of my favorite shoes of the moment!
