Tibeton Pop Stars

It's been so gloomy in Ohio lately and my style is starting to reflect that. I just want to join the muted/dark colors and hibernate. Plus I found this skirt shoved in my dresser and was amazed by how pretty it was. So, that is how this outfit was born.

I have been searching for a hat that worked with my haircut as none of my old ones do. I hit the jackpot in Target's men section. It's a fine line between short hair, larger heads, and weird shaped hats. I've been having some epically bad hair days, so I'm glad to have found this gem.

Tonight I'm going to see Every Time I Die and it's been awhile since I've been to a hardcore show! Kind of excited. Here's to hoping I don't get beat up. Just kidding.

tell me about evil

More often than not, I am uninspired by my wardrobe. It's not that I don't have great clothes or the ability to wear them in different ways. It's a combination of my room being a disaster and falling back on old daily favorites. I've been really trying to push myself to think beyond my standard outfit (skirt + band tee + colorful tights + boots) and that's how this outfit was born. Polka dots are a classically universal print and I always wish that I could dress in that super sleek Blair Waldorf style of class. That's just not what (generally) works for my body or my lifestyle. But it sure is fun to pretend. This outfit is my version of that. It's one of my favorite looks.

This pin is from Aurora. She's super inspiring and I couldn't resist a Saint Mary-Kate pin. 'Cause who doesn't worship the Olsen's?

Through Being Cool

Saturday night I managed to get tickets to the sold out Saves the Day/Say Anything full album tours. It was perfect and I can't believe I've never seen Say Anything before. Afterwards, we ran into the guys from Saves the Day. They told us there was a secret show at the Grog Shop (best venue). We quickly made our way to the other side of Cleveland. It was relatively empty and STD played an entire other set. It was one of those rare great nights in Ohio.

This is what I wore. I love this dress so much and yet, somehow I always forget about it. S/O to Taylor for this amazing belt. She was my secret santa from Flock Together and sent me some beautiful belts.

It was about 30 degrees, rainy, and extraordinarily cold when we took these. So I apologize for the awkward everything.

Past Winter Favorites

We've only had one serious snowstorm this winter, but it's getting colder as the days grow shorter. The worst of the winter will be here sooner than I want to acknowledge. I won't be leaving my house, I'll be terrified to drive anywhere, and I'll cry every single time I walk outside. What a beautiful time of year, right? But hey, at least it looks great in photos? It's hard to dress for winter because layers + indoors is sweaty but no layers + outdoors? FREEZING. It's a fine line. So, here's a look back at some of my past favorites. I need the inspiration!
