Spring Time Vibes


 It is officially spring break, and I am free (for the time being)!! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. After spring break the entire school seems to switch to fast forward mode and then before you know it the year is over. I am hoping to make the best out of these last two months. I bought this dress from Free People recently, technically its a slip/night gown, but I think it works perfectly as a simple and easy dress. Be on the look out for many more spring time vibes!!

Pleather + Lace Take 2


 A few weeks ago I wore something very similar to this, I guess you can say that I fell in love with the look! This dress (thrifted but originally from forever 21) is slightly too much for your average school day. By throwing on my pleather pants and oversized denim jacket the dress became simple and slightly more shirt like. 
While getting dressed this lovely spring morning, I had an extreme amount of trouble zippering the dress all the way. I had no other outfit options for the day, so I safety pinned the side of my dress together and surprisingly no one noticed. I guess that means it was a job well done!

Transition


Transitions are hard no matter what. The switch from months of freezing cold to warm and sunny spring is especially difficult. There are days when birds chirp peacefully as a morning wake up call and the warmth from the sun is strong from the moment it rises. But there are also days when spring feels years away. 
Clothing is just another factor of the transition period. For me the shift from black to white will be especially hard. No longer will I be able to walk down the hall to my mom's closet and steal her clothes, because her shelves are consumed with only black garments. In other words.. I NEED new clothes, I do not just want them, I absolutely have to have them or else I will not make it to this summer. Recently I purchased an awesome white circle skirt from H&M and clunky, black sandal things from Topshop so be on the look out for those. I do see new clothes in my future so stick around to see how I stumble my way into spring!

Standing Still


I feel like lately I have been stuck in a sort of style rut, my inspiration is seriously lacking and all I want to wear is my "mom" jeans. That is why there has been a lull in the blog posts recently. I have to figure out what has been getting me down, I think it's probably just school and life and such, but I have also been dressing just for my blog instead of for me and that needs to stop (although I am not really sure how to do that just yet). 
Hopefully soon some sort of "light" will go on in my head and I will be inspired again, but until then this is what I wore today. It is slightly boring, but it has a very spring like feel to it. Last night I slept with my hair in two french braids and somehow it ended up like this! I am amazed by how that worked out!

Denim



Spring has sprung! It finally reached the low sixties today!! It's time to clean out my closet which is long, long overdue. Although the weather is picking up it is really hard to figure out what to wear, even in school today with this outfit I felt weird and sort of bare. I feel like in my school no one really goes for a slow transition from the freezing winter to sunny spring. One minute it's pants and bulky sweaters and then I turn around and the crop tops have come out of hiding. A week ago I did see someone wearing shorts... and all I can say to that is that it is too soon. 

The one thing that I can never go wrong with is a good denim dress (or skirt for that matter). They are just so simple and can easily be dressed up or down. 
 Disclaimer: I own another one of these dresses in a chambray flower print.

Thank you Tucker (my little brother) for these pictures, even if the majority of them were on a weird angle.

Spring Are You There?


 Why is it still so cold?! Does the earth not realize that it is march 27th today and spring began 7 days ago? I'm ready to wear short sleeves, not shorts (I hate shorts) but those don't come until summer time anyway. I'm ready for 50/60 degree weather and sunshine. It better hurry up and get here fast!

I love this short sleeved, silk button down from DKNY, it's the perfect off white and falls at just the right length for me. It has that simple yet elegant look to it that I absolutely love.

I was playing around while editing my photo's today, so that's why there are some sort of strange ones mixed in today. I am also going to start adding a little inspiration to my posts, because it's always nice to here.
