This skirt has become my go-to. I was shocked to discover I can rock this shape. It's strangely flattering on me and I'm thankful to have found it. Especially considering when I ordered it H&M sent me the wrong size and an email about a shipping error in the ladies department. Naturally, it was out of stock in my actual size and I spent two weeks impatiently waiting. It ended up costing me more the second time around, but hey, I got my favorite skirt. Like I mentioned, I've been wearing a variation of this outfit for six months straight and I probably won't stop.

While I didn't blog much in the past few months, I still occasionally took photos and just never posted them. On this day, my sister and I saw the Avett Brothers at a festival in Cleveland. The festival came with free tickets to the Rock Hall of Fame so we did that too. It was a lovely time and now I miss her (she moved back to New Zealand.)

And there's only one photo in front of this door because the cops yelled at us.

Good as Gold

Thursday, January 10, 2019

I'm a sucker for anything gold or sparkly or space related. So, naturally I had to buy this gold constellation dress. It has pockets and it's strangely fancy. I have the same dress in another print, so I wasn't prepared for how fancy it is. Maybe it's the gold or the length? Either way, I feel like I should be on my way to a dinner party and not just out for coffee.

I know a lot of people think blue + black is taboo -- but I am simply not one of them. Maybe it's my former love of the Backstreet Boys. Maybe it's just my obsession with only buying black accessories and shoes. Either way, I don't think there's anything wrong with mixing the two colors. In fact, I feel like they work pretty well together.


Oh, and I'm obsessed with this necklace from onecklace. It says "leave me alone" in rose gold and that's 100% my vibe.

We got our first real snow of the season and I'm pissed. I thought for sure it was never going to happen. This weekend, my friends and I are headed to Columbus to see a band we love. We'll overeat, drink too much coffee, and wonder why we still live in Akron.

Okay, so obviously these photos aren't from RIGHT now, but they were from last month. We had some weirdly warm days and I took full advantage of them. It was a little windy, but I can handle some wind.

I picked this dress up at the thrift store over the summer. I strangely love it. It's not my go-to color or cut, but it is very flattering and cute. My local thrift stores have really gone down in quality while the prices keep going up. I'm not sure what caused this, but boy, am I angry over it. Though I should be a little thankful that I'm not inclined to shop as much.

I can't believe it's already 2019. I'm not sure where the time goes, but it sure moves quickly. I didn't blog nearly as much I intended in 2018. Hopefully, I'll do more this year. It's hard getting into a picture taking/nice outfit wearing habit when my boyfriend and I are on different schedules.

As always, you can find me -- sometimes more consistently on instagram or twitter.

wild years

I've had this dress for awhile now, but for some reason it started making a reappearance in my heavy rotation. It's perfect for the colder weather and is so comfortable and fun. I wore it to see my favorite band and yeah, I wore this amazing necklace from Onecklace with my fav bands name engraved into it. I love engraved necklaces because they add a little fun to every outfit and they're a conversation starter.

I wore this in Pittsburgh. We went to the Mattress Factory -- which is an incredible and interactive museum. Had tacos and tons of coffee before the show. My friends and I paid a little extra to see The Menzingers do an acoustic six song set before the show. Apparently this also included a photo. We are all very awkward, but we survived it. Both shows were incredible and I love Pittsburgh so much.
