I've been super obsessed with music lately. Like more so than usual. Which is kind of insane. I find that a good jam can really brighten my day and make school during midterms a little bit more bearable. Wolfmother is actually a great band. Multiple influences bring out this striking hard rock sound that is so familiar to me (in a fantastic ACDC/Pearl Jam/Led Zeppelin kind of way) and yet it is this random combo that makes them different as well.

Again, obsessive does not even cover it at this point. It's pretty much my life right now.

Fall break is this weekend. I can't wait to go home and just chill out with my family and watch random youtube videos and play video games with my brother until like four in the morning and then sleeping and pretty much never waking up.

Home sweet home. <3>

Outfit Post!!!!!

So, Jill and I have had this blog for nearly a year now, and I have yet to do an outfit post. After skyping with her today, she advised that this would be the perfect outfit to use as first legit outfit post. So here you go:

It was quite a gloomy day in the "D" today, you know, one of those rainy I-don't-want-to-get-out-of-bed days. I, however, took it as the perfect opportunity to break out the rain boots and knee highs and glam up this dark and dreary day.

I have on a gray long-sleeved tee, which is such an amazingly comfortable staple. I have this same top in bunches of colors because they're not only comfy, but they work with basically everything. Also, I have my khaki button front skirt (which I adore more than any other piece in my wardrobe) from Martin and Osa. I love the flow-y-ness and the fact that is has pockets! It's cinched at my waist with a black patent belt. 

I'm not huge on accessories, but for jewelry I had on a grayscale saints bracelet. I'm also in a pair of knit gray knee high's which peek out oh-so-ahdorably over my shiny black wellies. I kept my hair natural because thick, curly hair + rain = disaster. 

I hope you like this outfit. I'll hopefully be inspired to post many more sometime soon!

Stay beautiful!

Happy October :)

I can't believe it's already October! I'm so thrilled though because I can wear sweaters and boots and scarves and hats and drink pumpkin spice lattes. And now that I've officially been in college long enough  to deal with midterms and papers and reports and stress, I've learned how to get ready in the morning in a time crunch. I'm no stranger to dressing up. I don't feel complete without a bit of makeup and a semi-decent outfit. But I've gotten a reality check: you don't always have time to get all dolled up every morning. Sad.

However, I have devised a pretty simple template to get you ready and put together on those super busy days.


1. Sweaters are your best friend. They always make you look a bit put together even if they're a little oversized or slouchy. In that case, you get the benefit of comfort and style.

2. A good, fitted pair of jeans will always look better than sweats on those busy days. If jeans aren't your thing (I must admit, they're not my fave item of clothing), then try jeggings or even a super opaque pair of leggings. Pair them with some boots for a look that's A+.

3. The easiest thing to throw on to make any outfit complete is a scarf. The brighter and more embellished the better.


1. Try starting up your hair at night. It saves tons of time in the morning. But you can never go wrong with a ponytail, headband, or well crafted messy bun.


1. Tinted moisturizer and a bit of powder are all you need to even out your skin tone. Slap on some blush or bronzer to look a bit more awake.

2. If you spent all night out partying in the library studying, try rimming your water line with white eyeliner to fake the look of a good night's sleep.

3. Chapstick is your bff.

4. If you have a bit more time and can get in eyeshadow, try using three neutral bronz-y colors and layer. Use the medium tone for the base, the lighter tone to highlight, and the darkest color in your crease.

Voila, that's all it takes to spruce up your look quickly in the a.m. Good luck with school, papers, projects, and those horrid midterms!

P.S. Take a look at this for some more advice.

Stay beautiful,
