We Are Nowhere

Coral and teal are probably my two most favorite colors, but I feel really weird saying that whenever someone asks. Those colors make me sound snobby, right? So, I always pick something safe like green or pink. But I don't really like either of those colors. So, I guess I'm a liar.

Whenever there's snow or bad weather I try and make it better by dressing in its polar opposite. Which also means that in the dead of summer I will wear a snow suit and dream of the cold.

I have four huge tests coming up this weekend/next week. So forgive me while I go and cry my sorrows into phonetics, genetics, and other words that end in "ics".

Also if you want to see how exciting my life really is, you should follow me on Instagram: imnoastronaut.

  1. That snow is so fluffy-looking! I like your skirt. And teal and coral don't sound snobby to me...not as snobby as cobalt and silver haha...
    Tests are awful...I had two exams already and I wanted to cry. Oh well, good luck to you!

  6. I think coral & teal are perfectly acceptable favorite colors. No one really likes EVERY shade of blue. I'm loving these boots in the snow. The outfit is so cute and these shots are a lot of fun.
    Good luck on your tests!

  13. So cute! I admire your ability to wear bold colors together and make it look awesome. I'm always a little too fearful and stick to blacks and greys. Stay strong in the winter weather, I know it can get miserable around this time of year!

  15. Oh yes, loving the coral and the teal...hehe, we actually just painted one of the walls in our family room teal, I love it that much! This outfit is so girly/pretty/sweet. I love that you are wearing it in the winter...b/c winter needs color to cheer it up:) It total reminds of something I'd wear to a fair or summer carnival (without the jacket of course)...and truly that is where I want to be right now. Happy weekend darlin!

  16. I'm the same, coral is my absolute favourite colour, I have so many coral clothes in my cupboard! That skirt is absolutely beautiful & works so well with the green and black, love it! Also, I think you should send some snow my way, we don't get any here in Brisbane.

  22. what lovely brights against the pure white snow. You're so good at colors and look great in them. The black leather jacket is a nice contrast too. I like the action shot so fun! All the best for your studies!
