Cherry lips, crystal skies

Taylor Swift lyrics as my blog title post. Yeah, that’s right.

Total deja vu with today’s outfit. Maybe because it looks like the pants version of this one. Sew orig.








Jacket: American Eagle
Shirt: Forever 21
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Delia’s
Backpack: Target (similar)
Rings: H&M (similar)

The sheer panel on the shoulders of this tee is the perfect amount of edge on an otherwise plain tee. Note to self: Don’t wear a hot pink bra next time I wear this shirt. So visible, so tacky.

I am selfish. I am brave.

This is the second part of my Divergent series. Click here to see my Tori Wu inspired makeup and hair look.

If I had to choose between factions, my stubborn, foolish self would choose Dauntless. It scares me, much like it scared Tris, but I would selfishly abandon a life of comfort for a life of thrill.

Shirt: Target

Necklace: Black Heart
Nails: Zoya “Neve”

As a Dauntless member, I would maintain my femininity with blouses and jewelry. Legging-like pants would allow me to maneuver and climb when needed. My symbol is the star because, well, I already have one tattooed on me so hey, convenience.

Which faction would you be in? What would your style be?

Today is the last day to enter my Divergent makeup kit giveaway. The winner will be notified and announced Wednesday. Good luck.


Duel on Cloud City






Sweatshirt: Hot Topic
Skirt: Aeropostale (similar here)
Boots: Delia’s
Necklace: American Eagle
Nails: Revlon Plum Seduction

Much like my quidditch shirt, this sweatshirt was an “I NEED IT NOW” impulse buy. It’s comfortable, it’s beautiful, I want to wear it forever.

Posing is hard, y’all. I think lounging on my couch in this sweater would have been more appropriate because it felt like I was wearing pajamas outside. And where’s my lightsaber? Priorities.

Have a great Saturday and thank you for reading.


Lavender Brown

Another Harry Potter reference. Are you even surprised?

Speaking of which, I just found out yesterday that I can become an associate of a college at Rice University, one of which calls themselves Slytherin. Yes? Yes.






Shirt: Urban Outfitters (same cut, similar print here)
Cardigan: American Eagle
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Delia’s
Necklace: My grandma’s

It’s still only January but Houston doesn’t care. It’s been in the low 70’s so in my mind, it’s spring. I’ll use any excuse to wear floral.

Have an amazing Saturday and thank you for reading.


Fire lane

Hello. Shooting indoors is difficult.





Jacket: Old Navy
Sweater: Gilly Hicks (similar here, only $5)
Skirt: American Eagle
Boots: Delia’s
Watch: Michael Kors
Cold: Me

This sweater makes me feel like Zooey Deschanel, or at least Jess from New Girl. I love the bow detail on the collar and it’s cut short enough to wear with circle skirts. I bought it before Gilly Hicks stopped making clothes, an unfortunate decision on their part.

Excuse me while I research how to shoot photos indoors properly without having to resort to going outside at the end of the day in super cold weather.

Have a great Sunday and thank you for reading.

Sunday Neutrals

I have a new job! After a year of searching, I’ve secured employment at Rice University and couldn’t be more excited. I’m also moving in with my boyfriend in two weeks. Changes!

The boyfriend and I had a busy weekend of shopping for white elephant gifts, making chicken and dumplings, taking my puppy to the vet, and admiring the decorations at the mall surrounded by chattering Christmas shoppers. I now have more presents to wrap and tree-shaped Reeses to avoid eating.

Scarf: Gift
Ring: Forever 21

I’ll miss having the Houston skyline in view, but I’m looking forward to my new beginnings. I’m nervous about starting somewhere new, as always, but I know that this is a step in the right direction. The ultimate goal is to be writing novels as my day job, but that will take time, effort, and perseverance. This new job is a happy reminder that I am capable.

Have a fantastic Sunday and thank you for reading.


Indiana Weather

The cold weather is appropriate for the mood of this weekend. My boyfriend walked out to his brand new car Friday morning to discover the wheels had been stolen. Later that night we rescued a kitten and found it a new home.

Friday morning left us devastated and questioning humanity, but thanks to an amazing support system, my boyfriend will have new wheels put on Monday. We were able to pay it forward by saving a kitten’s life who had also had a rough day finding shelter from the freezing rain.

Pants: J.Crew
Jacket: BB Dakota (similar here)
Boots: Delia’s
Watch: Michael Kors
Ring: Michael Kors

I love my chambray shirt, so to make it work all year round I paired it with my favorite pants and boots. The thin shirt is impractical for winter, but I plan to layer it under sweaters and cardigans. I keep my accessories minimal, and usually gravitate towards my Michael Kors watch. I received it as a gift last Christmas and think it is a timeless piece of practical jewelry to have in your collection.

Have a pleasant Saturday and thank you for reading.
