It's been awhile. Now that school is out, I've been working a lot at my job and unfortunately I cannot dress this extensively. However, I jump at opportunities to dress up- oh yes I do. For instance, this weekend, there's a river festival going on and so even with the wind blowing, I dressed up. Like I said, it's been awhile and as Kurt from "Glee" says "Every moment of your life is an opportunity for fashion."
*pink Aerie shades, flower earrings (consignment), tan Vanity jacket (consignment), my brother's old Michael Kors top (used), my brother's old (AG) jeans (used), a Dooney and Bourke backpack (consignment), Cole Haan men's shoes (consignment), and some fresh toasted and sugar coated almonds from the festival.

Well I had quite the discussion with some of my fellow peers in school. We talked a lot about fashion and style today. I had a tough time getting them to understand the difference between two very different topics: fashion and style, then buying cheap clothes and buying clothes for cheap prices. First off, they didn't believe there was a difference between style and fashion, and then they thought that I only bought expensive clothes. Okay, that's true in a sense. I buy expensive clothes USED, which is ultimately cheaper. I shop consignment stores and peoples closets. Teenagers are so tough to talk to sometimes! (:
*flower earrings, floral Leifsdottir top (consignment) (they all said it looked like curtains at an old ladies house), teal Frenchi shorts, and black sparkly TOMS.

The days of school are almost over! So excited. So my parents just came back from a brief vacation and while they were somewhere warmer than here, they went shopping with a couple of friends. A couple of Italian friends. And the lady just so happened to find this romper for me. Since I had finals today, I decided to wear it and the romper is sooooo comfortable! Plus, picked by an Italian fashion guru... even better!

As the week passed (without snow, yet we had some unexpected hail), the sun came out and my inspiration for spring colors sprung forth. I believe spring is all about new beginnings, and even though where I live, it is a bit yucky outside, it doesn't mean one's closet has to be!
*Old Navy scarf (consignment), green PINK top, teal Frenchi shorts, two vintage bracelets (consignment), and blue Nanette Lepore by Keds flats (consignment).

So I was pilfering through my mom's garage sale pile and happened upon my brother's "get ride of pile." And what did I find? JEANS!! I had been eyeing these jeans for over a year now, when I first borrowed them for a school project and here they were! Gosh, I was so excited. Has anyone tried wearing guys jeans? They are so comfortable. Seriously. Who needs to buy the "boyfriend slouchy jean" when one can just borrow from their bro? Aw man. This seriously made my day. Thanks man!
*vintage rhinestone earrings (consignment), pink Bobeau top (consignment), "slouchy" men's AG jeans (garage sale), and pink ECCO flats.

Hmmm, I see to be in the pink mood a lot. Nothing wrong with that I suppose. It's better than black black black for me. It's been kind of windy all week and the weather forecast calls for snow on Sunday (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?!), so I'm squeezing in all my springy outfits before the snow falls. IF it falls. Which I hope it doesn't.
*white ARIES 50 top (consignment), brown leggings, and pink Keds (Tj Maxx)

Well I hope everyone had a great weekend. I sure did! I was actually out late last night coming home from a weekend trip and threw this together this morning. Plus, my hair! And no, I did not use a crimper. I used the magic of braids. (:
*jeweled necklace (consignment), pink J. Crew cardigan (consignment), black CAbi jeggings, and khaki Wet Seal boots.
