Hello! Alright, I hope when I say that I'm trying to make this quick, you don't think I'm a horrible person. But I'm trying desperately to get every second in with everyone I adore before I leave in two days!! It's insane to think I have just one more full day left in my little baby sized town. I know I've talked about this way too much, so I'll just leave it at that!
So, the other day, with Niklaas' help, I did the ever so impossible task of going through my closet. I haven't gone through my closet and thrown things out since......8th grade. Maybe 9th. It was stuffed to the brim! Of my 45+ dresses and 25+ skirts, guess how many I put in the "keep" and "going-to-college" box?? 13 dresses and 10 skirts! I'm SO proud of myself! Haha. I encourage every one of you to seriously go through your closet and seperate what you definitely without a doubt could never throw away and what you only sometimes wear because as I found out, I have a pretty hefty wardrobe of must-haves minus all the "sometimes". I'm actually so excited to mix and match!
Well, these pictures are so, so unlike me, as you've probably noticed. I look so "emo" and "edgier" than normal. Usually, you find me in "pretty" florals and lace, I think. I have realized, I truly have no definite style. With every blogger, they seem to have their overall general "look" they stick with in addition to some risks, but I'm never consistent. I don't know how on earth to label my style!
I'm honestly so excited for summer to end and jump into fall. I love summer, but I'm sick of dressing for it. Dresses are my favorite thing, but I'm tired of just throwing on a dress and sandals and going out the door. I live for layers! Tights. Sweaters. Tees. Dresses. Skirts. Vests. I can't wait!
We went to this awesome place called "Zen" to take these pictures. Of course, Niklaas being the groovy cat he is, knew of its existence when I had no idea there was a place like it in our vicinity. It was kind of creepy and there were so many grafitti pieces of art surrounding a seemingly horrible father, but it was so fun!
I've been so eager to try the floral/plaid pattern mixing trend lately. Well, maybe it's not a trend, but separately, the two are trends and considering pattern mixing is my favorite, I've wanted to combine them for a longgg time! I always feel so proud of any item of clothing I've had for more than 6 months, before the new era of my life referred to as the "fashionista" days (HA!!). I've had this simple plaid shirt since the summer before last summer and I find myself wearing it frequently. I am also very proud of this dress I purchased- goodwill! Two dollars! Yes! The floral print is so cute and belted it's perfect. I love buying too-big clothes and belting them to make it work. My shoes are my precious gems that Niklaas bought me- they were the first pair of shoes to go in the keeper box! I love them so much. My favorite part of this whole shoot was the ability to wear tights again though:)
I know this is a short post with not so many pictures, but taking them required using flash, which required a lengthly amount of time between each shot. But quantity over quality, right? :)
