Fox in Motion

Hello? Is this thing on? Can't believe I remembered how'd to do this. Just kidding. It has been a little while though. Mostly because I decided this year that I simply did not want to be cold for photos. And boy, has it been cold and wet. I think I mentioned it awhile back that I've been REALLY bored with my wardrobe. I've spent that last few months trying to find pieces that will stand the test of time and be wearable for all occasions. I've only been moderately successful in this quest. Here's one of the recent dresses that I've picked up. It's pretty much a dream. I wore this outfit with a cropped cardigan and a leather jacket to a wedding.

These last few months have been filled with adventures, music, good food, and trying to make it through the never ending cold that is Ohio. I realize that blogging has more or less been dead for years, but I do miss blogging. I like sharing my outfits and parts of myself. Hopefully, I'll be making more appearances around here now that the sun is slowly making a comeback.

Tell me that I'm alright / that I ain't gonna die

Band t-shirts are pretty much the closest thing I have to an actual aesthetic. I don't usually pick out white band tee's, but I loved the 80's look of this Paramore shirt. I spent a good portion of 2017 falling in love with Paramore and so, it only makes sense that I needed to get this shirt. I don't love a large portion of their merch so this one was a pleasant surprise. I get a lot of shit for listening to Paramore which is hilarious because they're damn good. And their live show? Absolutely phenomenal. They played at a seated venue down the street from me -- which is rare. So, I bought myself a front row ticket and went to the show alone. It was one of the best concerts I went to all year. You won't catch me going anywhere in Cleveland alone, but Akron? Absolutely. I encourage everyone to do the same. Sometimes rollin' solo is even better.

The thrift stores in my neighborhood have not been good lately. In fact, I am now shocked when I find anything thrifting. My friends and I still go regularly, but boy is it a disappointment. When I found this lovely vintage skirt, I was shocked it wasn't overpriced and was my size. These are rare things now. I'm not sure what is going on with the thrift stores, but I miss them.

These photos were taken awhile ago before winter hit. Obviously, I wouldn't be caught dead without a jacket and a million layers in this freezing weather.

Not the sun

While it's a brand new year...these are not brand new pictures. I took these towards the end of the year during our first huge snow storm. It's not news that I hate snow, but I decided to treat myself to a practical item -- an actually warm/weather resistant coat. I picked this gem up at Zara. It looks like a higher quality and warmer version of my previous coat, so I'm incredibly happy. While I might've bought a practical coat, I still don't know how to dress practical. This dress is one of my all-time favorites. It's beautiful, comfortable, and fun to spin in.

I'm not much for resolutions, but as always, I have created a book related goal. The last two years, I have stuck with something simple: twenty-five books a year. This isn't a lot, but it's hard for me to dedicate time to reading (a hobby I used to be so good at). This year, however, I have decided to up the ante to a book a week. I'm already halfway through the second book. I'll probably do updates here, but you can also follow me on Goodreads.

A Year in Review: 2017

Sunday, December 31, 2017

I have been a horrible blogger this year, but it's okay! Blogging has really changed and honestly, the real content is on Instagram. Well, not for me because I still don't want my entire feed to just be my face. Balance is key, right? I hope to blog more in the New Year, but I won't get upset when it's too cold or I don't have a brand new outfit to wear. Here's to takin' it easy and not letting the news bum ya' out.

Despite not blogging a ton -- I still managed to wear some cute outfits and do some cool shit.

In January, my friends and I made the semi-long drive to Washington, D.C. for the Women's March. It was absolutely inspiring and exactly what we needed to help us deal with the new administration.
