I'm wearing a pink skirt

shirt: blue notes, skirt: jcrew: shoes: plato's closet: necklace: vintage
I can't think of anything to write about besides weather, and fall, and the awesome fall temperatures we've been having these past few days.  Since that's all I've talked about the past week I won't do it again.  Hope you all have a great night!

A good day

shirt: plato's closet, pants: f21, shoes: hand-me-down

Today was a good day. I got up early for class this morning. It was chilly outside. I went to work. Viv came over and we hung out.  I made soup for dinner. Right after Jordan and I finished eating, the neighbor's little boy brought us hot cookies. Jordan went to Target with me and I didn't even have to beg. I took a bubble bath and now it's not even nine-o-clock and I'm lying cuddled in bed in my pj's.  This song pretty well sums up my day.  Hope you all had a good day too.

Fall is Here!

jacket: papaya, jeans: f21, shirt: roxy, scaft: ny, purse: gift from suz
 Fall is here, hear the yell
back to school, ring the bell
brand new shoes, walking blues
climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we're going to be friends.

Besides when I was really young I've only not had bangs when I was in 8th and 9th grade.  In 7th grade I decided to grow them out.  Side swept bangs didn't exist then, so I awkwardly split them down the middle and pushed my bangs off to the sides while they were growing.  In 10th grade side bangs became a thing and I chopped mine off again.  Since then I've had bangs of varying lengths and strait across bangs for the past few years.  I decided to try and grow mine out and they're already driving me nuts.  Hopefully I can push through the annoying phase and not chop them off before I'm bang-less.  Wish me luck!

Any bang-growing-out advice?

School has started. Which means its almost Halloween. Which means its almost Thanksgiving. Which means Christmas is right around the corner!! I love the Christmas season and I get really excited to decorate and play music (which I do play year round). If I could I would put up Chirstmas decorations November 1st. Jordan won't even let me put up fall decorations until September 22 (the first day of fall) and that was after some negotiating on my part.

Cardigan Weather!

sweater: old navy, shirt: blue notes, jeans: papaya, shoes: target, necklace: f21
The weather yesterday was only in the 70s so I brought out my favorite cardigan.  I wish when you bought and item of clothing that would become a favorite you knew immediately so you could buy multiple of the same item to save for later.  I've had this sweater for about 4 years and it's still my favorite, but I feel like it's life might be coming to an end soon.

leaf headband

shirt: tj maxx, shoes: f21, jeans: urban outfitters, headband: made by Viv

Sorry for the awkward face and pose in the last picture. It was the best that showed everything I was wearing :)

Viv made the great headband I'm wearing. You can find a tutorial on how to make your own over here at Vivileen.  I don't really have much else to say, so go make yourself a headband!

Outfit Photos

shirt and shoes: tjmaxx, skirt: made by me, necklace: made by me, bracelet: modcloth, belt: thrifted
Do any of you feel silly and awkward when taking outfit pictures?  I've gotten a lot better when it's just me and my husband around, but when we took these photos my neighbor was out so my shyness kicked in.  Every photo ended up with me standing with my arms down at my sides, looking strait ahead, with a slight scowl.  Oops!

Along with lots of other lovely ladies, we're linked up over at Modern Modest Beauty today.  Check it out!
