Dear Kels

It’s been a while since we’ve talked. I know things are crazy busy in your world, and I’m sad that I haven’t been more available with all the hectic uncertainties in mine keeping me preoccupied. That is a poor excuse. To make up for it, I have a series of pictures I took of my sister’s cat discovering balloons when we set up for a recent birthday party.

One of my favorite things about you is how entertained you are by the Little Things in life. It’s one of the reasons I thought you’d like this particular series of photos.

Despite the stressful curveballs life might be lobbying in your direction, I do know you have some pretty darn exciting things as well going on, and I’m totes excited to hear more about them. In fact, I’m hoping that as the quarter nears an ending, maybe I can talk you into visiting Seattle over the weekend. We could meet up on campus and catch up over coffee, then you and I can hop into a library for some studying time. I don’t think I’ve told you in-person about my novel, but I think a quiet study environment would be very welcome focus point for me. Selfish, I know, but still true. Let me know if you’re interested.

Oh and this is kind of a side note, but I recently stumbled across this blog and the name alone, Looks Good From The Back, always makes me chuckle. Like, I can imagine you saying it as I walk out of a dressing room wearing some bold thing that you can’t stomach and I think is awesome amazingness dripping with unicorn drool. Also, being them seems cute. Their friendship is adorable.

That last photo is my favorite from the series. I hope you enjoyed them, but even if you didn’t, it’s okay. They were a ton of fun to take, since getting snarked on by kitties is somehow one of my secret favorite hobbies.

Take it easy,

PS I made you an equivalent signature and uploaded it to the library if you like it. I mean sure, I could email you this information, but somehow this is more fun.

Sequins: Did I mention my sister got married?

Because in case you haven’t heard–my sister got married. To her best friend. A guy she’s known for over half of her life. He’s kind of awesome. Like, in a I’ve-considered-him-my-older-brother-since-I-was-ten-kind of way. Anyway, to wrap things up, I got permission from my sister to share some of their professional photos she received in a sneak peak. Woot!

Oh and if further proof that my speech was amazing and hilarious was needed…

Some of my favorite peeps, right there. And thus endeth the wedding photos!

Oh and because this is, technically, a fashion blog? I found my Maid of Honor dress in a thrift store for ten dollars. I never remember the designer, but it’s a semi-fancy one, so a fun find. It was originally white, and I dyed it using a combination of purple and pink dyes.

Sequins & Stripes: A Sunday Adventure Day 29

Early* this morning Sequins, Stripes and our good friend Plaid all piled into the car and headed over to the Skagit Valley Yearly Tulip Festival to look at some flowers, have some lady bonding time, and take a bajillion pictures. Also, side note, Sequins definitely drove us home. Because she’s awesome like that. Check out some of our pictures! The titles, if you hover over them, will tell you which one of us took it. Enjoy!

This is what happens when I don't remember I zoomed my camera in to take the previous shot!

Sequins Outfit:

Shirt: Sojourner/ Vest Scarf & Shoes: Thrifted/ Shoes: H&M/ TIghts: Gift

Stripes’ Outfit:

Shirt: Target/ Jeans: Gap/ Shoes: Toms/ Sweatshirt: Aerie/ Coat: The North Face (seriously awesome raincoat….if you’re in the market for one, this one is great!)


*So only two of us (*cough cough* Stripes and Plaid) thought 8 am was early…Our lovely Sequins is much more adjusted to such grown up hours and was bright eyed and fully awake by that point in the morning. The other two of us needed some more wake up time and coffee.

Sequins: New Years with Monsieur

Happy New Years, everyone!

Monsieur: Sweater, Target; Tie, Garcia; Pin, I made!
Me: Sweater, Gap; Boots, Can’t Remember; Socks, Mod Sock; Skirt, Thrifted; Pin, I made!

My dad bought himself a fancy camera and wanted use his daughters and their respective partners as models. We traveled for our New Year’s Celebration, which means we had limited clothes to pick our outfits from. Fortunately, Monsieur was totally on board with wearing a fox pin (apparently it’s not too feminine! Yay!). Then we posed.

Turns out it’s hard to get a good picture of just our top halves, horizontally, considering the height difference. Also turns out? We have very little patience for serious “nice” poses.

This is our model photo.

Then it just devolved into us making horrific monster faces. We’ve sorted through our favorites to figure out which ones we’re getting framed.

This is going on the mantle, for sure. Possibly our Christmas card. Happy New Year’s!
