Coming undone

I need to add more color to my wardrobe besides black, red, white and navy. I swear I saw a Marine try to salute my closet because of how much it resembles an American flag.

My boyfriend and I helped rescue a dog that had been abandoned at my apartments yesterday. The chilly air reminds me that there are so many animals out there who are homeless and suffer during the cold months. I’m happy we were able to help this puppy find a home, but I am disgusted by those who are able to turn their back on an innocent animal. I hope I can help more of them in the future, but for now I am spoiling my Westie and letting him know that he will be loved until the day he is no longer with us.

Hug your pets. They’re the best.

Childhood habits

Like most kids, I made some questionable style choices that I thought looked so good at the time. From headbands that would fall down the back of my head and give the illusion of pigtails to undershirts with holes and safety pins in them, I was a hot mess.

To accommodate my prepubescent beer belly, I would only button one button on a shirt, right beneath my boobs. I thought this made me look skinny and laid back. You know, as all 12-year-old girls should want to look.

Surplus shirt: American Eagle
Lace Tank: American Eagle
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Urban Outfitters (similar)
Bag: Forever 21
Necklace: American Eagle
Ring: Modcloth

But here I am, two buttons done up. This basically means I’m an adult now.

Both the tank and shirt are super thin and light, so they paired well with a thick pair of legging pants and booties. As long as the upper half of my body is cool, I don’t have the urge to dump a cooler full of ice on myself and cry in a swimming pool. I hate summer.

Creative ideas and future plans

I have the writing/filming bug again. I’ve been eyeing my YouTube channel wanting to make something of it and I think I’ve figured out a plan. I don’t want to share too much just in case I get lazy again it doesn’t work out, but I’m excited about my creative endeavors.

Have I mentioned how much I love pixie pants? I’m not looking forward to stowing them away when Houston starts to feel like a hairy man’s sweaty back fat this summer.

Have a great Tuesday and thank you for reading.

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
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Delia’s
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.

Real world confusion

HELLO. This is my new wordpress.org site that I set up by myself. *hair flip*

Same url, same theme (for now) but it will totally be changing as it grows. In honor of saving $120 and moving my site by myself, I channeled my inner Hermione and Ravenclaw.

Shirt: Aerie
Tank: American Eagle
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Delia’s
Purse: WB Shop
Bracelet: Etsy

This purse opens really wide to give the illusion of it being capable of holding school books and other impossibly large objects. I love taking it to concerts because I have managed to fit shirts and other merch inside it. It’s every bit as magical as it looks.

Have a great Sunday 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.

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.
