Never Say Never

Alright folks, a day has come that I NEVER thought would ever come; I’m going to blog about jeggings…not only that, I’m going to blog about how much I LOVE THEM (oh God, I love these pants more than my sweat pants). Yes, I was oh so hesitant to even try them on and I never in a million years thought I would own a pair-I suppose it’s true: never say never.

Despite the initial shame I felt for owning spandex pants (mainly because I gave Marci a hard time when she donned a pair a year or so ago) I have fully embraced all that is The Jegging. These pants are unbelievably comfortable, I can do yoga in them (yes, I tried), I can sit for hours, they make my butt look awesome, and they fit perfectly into boots. The one down side to this pair of magic pants, however, is it’s magnetic power attracting dog hair. Though I suppose doggies crashing my photo shoot doesn’t help.

Other than breaking in the jeggings, I’ve been soaking up the fall colors and lifestyle by chilling at the local Starbucks while attempting to make a dent in the pile of homework sitting in my backpack.

I have to say, I love fall weekend days. It’s so great throwing on a sweater, scarf, and boots and heading out to grab coffee. Life feels just a little slower…I love feeling like I have a chance to really catch my breath which with the crazy epicness that my life has become since starting school.

Anyone else enjoying these fall colors? I was originally going to do the shoot outside in a pile of leaves but there was a sudden downpour so I had to make a quick location change. What about loving jeggings?! Am I the only person who was surprised at how awesome these pants are or wish you could wear them everywhere, all the time?

Happy Sunday!

The Many Faces of A Fashion Blogger

This outfit was the outfit where I realized I have officially become a fashion blogger. “Why,” You may be asking, “is this outfit so much more magnificent than any other outfit?” Because I layered cardigans. Oh yes, I have entered the big leagues oh epic layering that only fabulous fashion bloggers and J. Crew Models attempt. And with big league clothing comes big league faces….I hope you’re ready for the many faces of a fashion blogger.

The smug, I’m a legit fashion blogger look.

The really intense like my outfit darn it look.

Stripes: Of Bangs and Hair

A day has come that I never ever, ever, ever thought would come: I have mastered the art of styling bangs.

Oh yes, I finally consistently pump out bangs that look like this in the morning. 9 year old me, with the goofy bangs going all directions, is so freaking proud. This was a long time coming, The first month or so of bangage was filled with weird gaps and flyaways. Luckily, after a bunch of experimentation, I’ve mastered the blow drying to hairspray quotient.

There are the bangs at the end of my work day. Seeeeeeee?! I think I’ve finally conquered the cowlicks.

I also thought you all might be proud of my accessorizing! I picked up this rose bracelet this last weekend at H&M and I think it’s my new favorite thing ever. I seriously want to wear this every single day ever but, alas, I’ve got to try rocking some other accessories too. I can’t be a one trick pony, now can I?
