Get Real

Hi. Uhm, I am back for real this time. I have really been struggling with what to do with this specific part of my life for a while. And what I mean by that is how I am going to start to blog/ write about what I want to without feeling a weird pressure to return to what I was doing. I love blogging. But I have been terrified to start again. And I love sharing certain parts of my life with all of you. But I don’t love feeling like I can’t write about what I want. Now, I know most of that is because I feel the pressure to be like everyone else. But here is a news flash for everyone (ESPECIALLY ME): You weren’t born to blend in. It is okay to stand out and get real. Be weird. And be unique. Be you.

So here is to 2018. I am going to blog about my life. Which means I am starting a series about dating. And lets get real, that is going to be both hilarious and a bit sad haha. You should probably be excited about that one. I mean who else replies to a guy who just complimented her with mumbles of not actual words? Me. I do. I am also going to write about living with anxiety. And I want to post more about school and photography because that is a huge, HUGE part of me. But, I also really love sharing fashion tips and outfits with you, so that is going to still happen.

I just want you (whoever you are) to know that it is 100% okay to get honest with yourself and check yourself before you wreck yo’self. Haha. But really, be authentic and be you, because no one else can be that. And that is your power. So be brave.

(Also for sure make sure you have a mini photoshoot in a waffle house with a juice box after your first day of school, because..fun!)

Like I said as I left Waffle House earlier…Juice Box OUT!

I am Freaking Merry

And here we are two days away from Christmas! I don’t even know what to do with myself. This year seriously went so fast! And I am still so grateful that I get to force my family to do all the Christmas things I want. Like the fact that we are watching Just Friends right now. My dad claims to hate it, but this is year two of him still watching it with me!

This shirt is one of my favorite things to wear in December so I thought I would share. Because I miss blogging my outfits. And I am trying to simplify it. I don’t need new clothes to show you ways to style pieces in your wardrobe. Graphic Tees are life for me, especially one that says ‘I am freaking merry’. I love them and this one is no exception. I am going to be doing a couple of different ways to style them and this is one of my favorites in the winter. Just throw on whatever cardigan/duster you want and call it good.

Bandanas have probably been my number one accessory since like September. I own several different ones, but the red one has been worn on loop since I feel like it is festive and junk. But I wear them several different ways. I’m also working on a post about that! (Gotta get posts prepped for before school starts so maybe I can have a successful school semester/ blogging life.)

I also really love these jeans. I got them from Target and they are the comfiest jeans I have ever worn. The raw hem is such a fun little detail along with the strip of darker jean on the side. I really want to get more jeans from there because they are also so affordable. I can’t throw 100$ on really anything right now. Especially a good pair of jeans. So I was happy when I found these.

Shirt: Similar here. (I bought mine last year sometime)// Bandana: Madewell//Jeans: Target

Let me know what kind of things you want to see in the new year. I am not going to be buying any new clothes so I am going to be getting creative with the stuff I put on here. So if you have any ideas just let me know!

I hope you have the best Christmas EVER!

Love you!

Semester 3

How did I just finish a whole freaking year of art school?! I am officially done with my third semester and I am so flipping excited about it. This semester had its own special challenges (read: MATH) But I was able to make it through! This is one of my favorite things that I do on this blog. (That I know I completely forgot about. But I have goals to fix that in the new year!) Looking back on semester one and two has been so crazy. I remember starting feeling like I wouldn’t make it through the week let alone an entire year! So here are the ten things I learned this semester.

 

  1. Don’t move in the middle of a semester around midterms.
  2. Living only 8 minutes away from school is seriously the best thing ever!
  3. I still hate math. BUT I never have to take it again..and that feels pretty dang great.
  4. It is okay to go and just do some shooting for yourself. I think this will always be a struggle while I am in school. But it feels good to go shoot something you want to do that isn’t necessarily an assignment.
  5. I have the greatest friends. Seriously, whenever I needed models for my classes I was always able to get people who actually showed up which really helps when you think about it!
  6. Photoshop isn’t as hard when you have a teacher who will teach you several ways to do something and lets you pick the way that is easiest of you. Go Grant.
  7. It is okay if not everyone likes how much you charge to take photos. This is a career. It isn’t a hobby. I don’t just ‘take pictures’ I am a photographer.
  8. Because of all the work I have put into my craft I get to go to Ecuador in the spring for a travel photography class.
  9. Photojournalism is not for me and that is okay. I don’t feel comfortable just taking pictures of people without them knowing. Although I still think I could make a killer Private Detective like Veronica Mars.
  10. There is nothing wrong with figuring out your priorities. This blog suffered a lot this semester. But my sanity needed to step back. And I learned that..that is okay!

And that is what I have today!

Love you so much!

I am working on posts as you read this!

Sweater Time

Okay folks, so this all starts with the fact that I wasn’t the smartest when I was packing all of my stuff. I had to be all packed up by last Friday because I was shooting a wedding on Saturday so everything had to be boxed up. EVERYTHING. The only things I kept out was 5 sweaters and a dress for my week. So basically I thought everything would be just dandy! GUYS IT WAS SO HOT LAST WEEK! It was rough. But there are worst things that could happen.

I still thought that I could share some of the sweaters since the weather is supposed to be getting cooler. And because I really just love sweaters more than most things on this planet. Nothing feels better than getting cozy in a sweater when it is chilly outside. If you don’t agree then you are wrong. I seriously always am on the lookout for new sweaters and cardigans. I am already working on a cardigan post, because I have a lot of them!

Honestly I wore all of my sweaters the exact same because I only had jeans and sweaters. So I think I will just post the pictures below. And you can decide which was the best sweater outfit.

 

 

Enjoy pretties.

Fall Y’all

Hiiiii! I can’t really say I am back to normal posting, because I don’t think that exists for me anymore. I mean, we all know how much I love Fall and I haven’t even posted! All I know is I miss posting so I am going to try. Sorry not sorry. I just wanted to stop by and say I miss you all. Even though it is totally on me for not posting. I have just been working on some big projects. Like launching my freelance photography company, and packing up to move, and taking mid terms, and just being tired. But hopefully with the move I can get back to posting, and maybe even start to show you some of my photography work.

If you didn’t know I am a huge fan of prints that make people ask me if I am wearing a rug or drapes. Fave! People, I have had so many comments about this print. And I super love it. The bell sleeves just make this shirt the greatest. I like the boho 70’s vibes that just feels good. I just like the flowy-ness. It is fun!

I am already working on a post about all the many hats that I wear so this one is from Gigi Pip. AND GUYS! I AM SO OBSESSED! Newsboy caps or fisherman caps, whatever you want to call them. I just think they are perfection for my head! The fact that it is blush and corduroy makes my life. But like I said, I am doing a whole different post about hats. I just really love this one. But, I really just love hats.

And can we just talk about how perfect these jeans are?! I love them! And they are from Target so yay! The hem alone is so choppy and cute I want to do this to all my pants. I won’t because I am not a professional and shouldn’t take scissors to any of my clothes. The side panel of darker denim are the reason I actually purchased these. It is just the added bonus that they are probably the worlds comfiest jeans. Boom!

Lets just all agree that we have seen these shoes everywhere and I will say that they are probably the comfiest things ever. Get them now!

And that is what I have today!

I will have fun apartment updates soon!

I love you unless you suck!
