Summer Evenings

Outfit Details:
Jacket: Wetseal
Houseboat tunic & Boots & Ring: Modcloth
Earrings; Forever21
Shorts & Socks: Target

One thing every person should own: a leather jacket. The end. Or rather pleather. Seriously, this might be one of the best investments of my life. Between it and bright red lipstick how could one go wrong? 

These photos also might show you how behind I am in posting everything. We'll just have a taste of summer for a while-who could really mind that? Eventually I'm sure we'll all find the cold, especially as it snowed today.

Happy Halloween: Kiss the Girl

Outfit Details:
Made by me and my mum. 

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays - mainly because it's fun, I love costumes, and I have great memories from past ones. When Halloween came around last year I really didn't have any intentions to dress up, but after a suggestion from my friend I decided to be Ariel. In case the red hair wasn't an indicator, she's always been my favorite Disney princess. While my Halloween plans that year fell through, months later I managed to wear the home made costume outside of the house and get some pictures.

On a freezing morning I dressed up and went to the beach, tugging along a friend who slept huddled in blankets while I took pictures. The experience made me realize that Ariel's hair would be nothing like suggested and my hair and beach weather don't get along so well. But, now you know: I'm a total sucker for Ariel and Halloween.
I love dressing up, and well, I'm totally okay with it. 

Happy Halloween!

Cardigan: Kohl's
Dress & Necklace: Lace Affair
Boots & Tights: Target
Bracelet & Earrings: Forever21

Early mornings can be so beautiful, yet they seem so easily missed by a girl who works nights. I sleep past them or work right through them depending on the day. But sometimes I catch them perfectly and I can't help but smile at the beauty they yield and the silence that surrounds them. I'm not really a morning or a night person, but sometimes I find myself leaning towards mornings, especially as they yield beautiful lighting.

New Orleans Bookstores and More

Outfit Details:
Shirt: Ebay
Vest & Skirt: Modcloth
Combat boots: TJmaxx

One of my favorite thing about New Orleans were the bookstores. My Francophile came out and I exploded with joy in being able to find so many french books. Also, how awesome is it that there was a cat living in the bookstore?

Balconies and Such

Outfit Details;
Shirt: Forever21
Jeans: hottopic
Vest: Thrifted
Boots: TJmaxx
Necklace: Ebay

This was taken from our balcony in New Orleans after a eight hour drive. Our drive into the city didn't offer us much of a view, but luckily where we were staying was a quick walk from all the life of the French Quarter. So after getting settled that evening we were finally able to wander about and explore a whole new place. Have I mentioned how much I love traveling?

New Orleans

These pictures are from back in March when a few friends and I went down to New Orleans after Mardi Gras - it had to be after as I'm not a big fan of crowds. It was my first organized road trip and so much fun! We stayed in the French Quarter, which made me happy for obvious reasons, and explored the city for a few days.  

Outfit Details: 
Shirt: Kohl's 
Shorts & Necklace: Ebay
Leggings: Target

Purse: Charlotte Russe

More pictures to come!

When I first got those shoes, probably five or so years ago, I couldn't even walk in them. Now, though, I've managed to master it and who can resist such Victorian splendor?

P.S. can you spot the TARDIS on the dashboard?

Casual Affairs

Outfit Details:
Jacket & Jeans: Hottopic
Shirt: Kohl's
Cap: Forever21
Necklaces: who can remember?
Kitten: Myka

When I was out and about, my friend said that she didn't think she'd ever seen me in jeans before-I laughed because while I wouldn't chose them every day, I do wear them a lot. This pair especially tends to make it into the favorite piles, plus whenever there is a hole, no worries about how the patch looks, right?

Red Doors & the Little Mermaid

Outfit Details: 
Jacket: Vintage Airforce Coat
Dress: Forever21
Necklace & Little Mermaid Bracelet: Gift
Boots: Ebay
Belt & Tights: Kohl's

I've had the bracelet for a long time, forever it seems. My mom said she kept it because maybe one day, when I was old, I might want it. She didn't realize I'd still be obsessed with Little Mermaid at this age. Silly her.
