Trying Something New-ish

Remember just how indecisive I was back when it was time to get my bangs cut? Yeah, I think I’ve taken it to a whole new level; I’ve started wearing my bangs a different way just about everyday. Some days they’re straight down the front, some days pulled back, and, now, side swept. Yep, I’ve listened to all your beautiful advice and I think I’m in love with my current, short side bang look.

We’ll see just how long my love lasts, though, I’m still Miss Indecisive after all.

In other news, what I may have failed to mention when I first introduced you to Matt is that he lives over in the other Washington. So I’m eagerly counting down until his plane lands tomorrow afternoon and I get a big old hug.

What this also means, is that you can fully anticipate cute coupley pictures with Marci and David because we are having our first real double date! So be on the look out for way too much cuteness sprinkled with a heavy dash of ridiculousness because you know things are going to be epic when the four of us are all in one place…with cameras. Ohhhh heck yes!

Happy almost weekend guys! And let me know what you think about bangs!

The Statement Piece

As I’m writing this post I’m listening to Christmas music, taking a load off, and mentally refreshing myself because it’s that dreaded part of the quarter: finals week. I have a big scary paper due next week but we’ve been working on it for weeks so it should be a piece of cake. Tomorrow, however, I have a pretty scary final that covers an amazingly massive array of topics. So, tonight’s post is going to be short and to the point…kind of like my outfit (and legal writing!).

Photo on 12-5-12 at 9.21 PMToday was my first try at monochromatic black (aside from throwing on a LBD) and I think I’m finally embracing the whole head-to-toe black look in my everyday life. I felt pretty dang rad rocking this solid black get-up.

As an added bonus, this is what I looked like as I wrote this post (cause I know everyone is dying to see the “behind the scenes” and if not, well, haters be hatin’)…

Oh These Dark Days

Man guys, let me tell ya, being a fashion blogger comes with it’s own set of woes. For reals. Like the fact that it now gets dark at 4 pm out here in the great NW. You want to know what’s really hard to do after its dark? Taking fashion blog pictures. So please, bare with me here with these cruddy pictures.

The single full body shot that wasn’t completely awful.

My sad attempt at showing you I was wearing brown boots with black pants. (A big first for matchy matchy Kels!)

My OMG is this really going to work? face.

What follows is a selection from my silly face pictures because I’m using a webcam album:

Yeah, maybe next Saturday I’ll remember to get dressed before it gets dark again…maybe.

My Favorite Sweater

Sweater:Hogwarts (Wizarding World of HP)//Shirt:Traget//Pants:Gap

Oh boy folks, I’m in love. How could I not be? It’s officially chunky sweater season and I’m finally able to break this woolen gem out as often as I please. How often is that? If I had my non-socially conforming way it would be everyday; more realistically it’s seeing the light of day about once a week (I’ve gotta experiment with fashion at least a little, right?!). Since I can’t wear this sweater everyday as I would secretly like, I decided it would be fun to write a poem dedicated to my most favorite article of clothing.

Sweater, Sweater, oh my Sweater,
You keep me warm, no matter the weather.
Your woolen knit
Doesn’t itch one single bit.

Sweater, Sweater, oh my Sweater,
I cannot think of a garment any better.
You hale from the Diagon Ally
And won’t be found on any regular Jim, Joe, or Sally.

Sweater, Sweater, oh my Sweater,
I love you more than any old Irish Setter.
I love you more than my iPhone 4,
I love you straight to my core.
Sweater, Sweater, you’re MY Sweater.

What can I say? I’m pretty ridiculous…and pretty not gifted at poetry. Eh, consider this amateur hour on the blog and have an absolutely lovely weekend!

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.

The photobombing yourself look.
