I love to wear bright green in the spring and I was really happy when I found this jacket in the thrift shops!   These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when the sun was shining....remember that short time?   I decided to go somewhat mod with this outfit---not normally my style, but it's fun to create a new you once in a while.  I also curled my hair for this look but once the humidity hit it, it just went flat. 

(Note to self:  long straight hair for summertime.  do not waste time with curling iron.)

Dip Dye + Peace

I finally made my own dip dye (or dip bleach) denims.  I bought these jeans at a thrift shop and cut them off and then dipped the hems into bleach.  I was afraid to leave them in the bleach too long so this is how they turned out.  I really love them like this though, do you?

And.....another crazy look for school at the very end.  When you wear a uniform everyday, these little dress down days and crazy themed days are all I've got til summer!!!

I found this boho top at the thrift shop and decided to wear it over the weekend with pinstripe shorts and sandals.  I love how flowy the shirt is and how the wind caught the sleeves and hem.  Flowy is good.   In exciting news, in exactly one month from today, I will be sleeping in for my first day of summer vacay.  School has sucked all the creative juices from my brain.  I'm think I'm giving more than I'm getting.....what's wrong with that???????

I finally gave in and wore pastels.  They're not so bad after all.   I found this mint and gray skirt at a local boutique and I really like's twirly and fun.  I've overslept for school again, so I don't have time to blog much this morning.

Happy Monday everyone!  Ugh.

Neon + Stripes

Here I am with the neon going on again!  And stripes are one of my favorite things along with converse and neon.  Did I already mention how much I love neon?  I threw them all on a while ago and then forgot to post these pictures.  The mind is the first to go?  No, I'm just trying to dig out from under this crap called school and my mind is already on summer vacay! 

I've got to work on my pose face....I either look mad or like I'm in pain.

Pastel Lace

Here I am, sporting some pastel lace....gettin all girly and stuff!  It was such a nice day so I took my Kindle to the park and read instead of doing homework.  I'm still trying to finish Catching Fire (Hunger Games series).    There should be a hammock and snacks waiting for me here,, all I could find was this delightfully hard concrete wall.

Back to the Future

Back in the day people actually drove cars like this.  I can't imagine!  But I kinda like it.  Sorta.  And I wanted to pose next to it but I don't own many vintage items so I decided to pose in "futuristic" clothes!   

Here we are....back to the future!

Bright Neon Sunlight

I'm playing with lighting again.  Most of the time I have to take pictures in bright sunlight and it's NOT my friend.....harsh shadows, distorted colors.   So I'm making the most of what I have to work with.....that's what we do, right?

Just Chill Maxi

Happy Friday the 13th!  I'm not really superstitious but let's just get this day over!  Or better yet, let's just stay home all day!  It's been a long week and I'm ready to lay face down in my bed stare at a spot on the wall all weekend.   I'm so burnt out on school and there's still a month to go.  Do you think I could find someone to go in my place for the last month?  Hahaha!  Yeah, that's prolly a bad idea.  Really bad idea.

Cobalt Boyfriend

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.  The color associated with this organization is cobalt blue.  Once a week during April, we can dress in cobalt blue at school and give a moment of silence and a short prayer for all the children who have suffered abuse or are currently in abusive families.   I just can't imagine what that's like. 

Today I chose to wear a cobalt blue boyfriend sweater and a scarf (it's cold again).   And please ignore my know I love to change my laces but this was for another thing at school and I just never changed them back.  This is NOT part of the look....well, shouldn't be anyway.  ;-)  Cut me some slack for the sake of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. 

I'm not gonna smile.  Not gonna smile.  Not gonna smile.

It's Good Friday and I have the day off school!!  I slept in and finally got myself upright long enough to get dressed.  This isn't my normal Friday look, but this is what I'm wearing for Good Friday services.
