mirror mirror

I took this picture just to kind of test how I looked, but I really like it. For reasons unknown. I am officially obsessed with wearing long skirts now.

This is actually a dress from Target, but it works. Where can I find more maxi skirts?! Need more.

old into new

This outfit doesn't quite fit into the ideal that I posted about yesterday (long and flowy and spring colors and ease) but I managed to take some old things and kind of get the look I was going for.

First, I took my favorite dress from last summer and wore it as a skirt, making it longer. Then I found my old Rufus Wainwright "Gay Messiah" t-shirt (listen, it's a great song!) for some bright pink. And with my new Betsy Johnson tropical birdy earrings and pink balled flats, I think I managed a nice spingy comfy look.

summer steeze

I'm so ready to transition into summery style. It's been getting really hot here and every time I step outside, I'm met with them feeling of impending doom that preempts summer.

I took to Polyvore to kind of design my vibes for the summer. I feel like I'd be happy wearing this skirt every day, varying tops and accessories as the mood strikes.

Anyone else got a summer steeze?

gloomy days

Hi everyone, I have red(er) hair and red glasses now. It's so satisfying, I can't even explain. When life gets me down, I like to change things up a bit, and this is very much working to help pull me back up.

So has anyone else noticed that all the best street style blogs (The Sartorialist, FaceHunter, etc.) have been featuring a LOT of gorgeous ladies in long flowy skirts lately? Well, I noticed. And I also noticed that they look great. And I also noticed that I have the perfect skirt to achieve that look, which I have had since I was 14. 14! That's almost 10 years. Never again will I listen to people (my mom) who tell me I should get rid of clothes. I must save everything!

I decided the aesthetic of this look is "hippie goth." It embodies my spirit of wanting to help people while also hating most of humanity. It works, right? Although it should probably be "hippie goth nerd" with the glasses, and since it's me, a perpetual and proud nerd.

Do you like my clogs? I've had them since January, but haven't worn them yet, because of my general fear of being taller than everyone in my family. Which I already am. So I'm just going to say screw it and wear them. They are SO comfortable and make me feel funky.

Now a questions about Blogger? How can I get my pictures to be bigger?!?! I know it's possible, I've seen it done. But I can't figure out how to do it. Please help?

in a hurry

Hi blog world! How I've missed you! The past week has been pretty crazy, with exhausting work days and forcing myself to go to the gym. And then my cousins are their two little daughters arrived, with all their belongings, to become Florida residents! I'm so happy about that, but it's made life so hectic. Watching two kids is HARD. Remind me that if I ever say I want any.

Anyway, I've had no time to even read blogs, let alone post to my own, but I managed to get my mom to snap some phone pics in a parking lot while we were rushing from one place to another:

My new favorite look! Flowy Free People top (all time fave) over shorts, with a light sweatshirt and knee socks. It's my way of saying "hey seasons, I love you all!" Also, I just threw random stuff on and then ended up really liking it so wore it all weekend....
