for real

I am determined to get back in the swing of blogging and commenting and posting (oh, the blogging circle of life) regularly! It's weird to look at pictures I took that were intended for spring that I took in the winter. I hate all of them! I think it's what has taken away from my inspiration because I want to be posting new articles of clothing and use all the spring pictures people are starting to post as inspiration, not using old ones! Psha. Just got to get through the next few weeks and spring will be here!!!!!

I didn't get to go home last weekend...but...I'm going home next weekend! Which is almost better because by that point, it will only be two weeks away from spring break. Yay! Everyone seems to be on break right now... and while I'm so envious, I still have a little left in me to keep at it and when it finally does come, we will only have three full weeks before summer. Which is practically nothing! YAY! I quite possibly will have a real job this summer in a microbiology lab next to my dad and I'm just so excited for the whole summer and for next year to come that I could sing.

I got this skirt for Christmas and as I referenced earlier, I just can't wait to wear it in the spring. Without tights!! I only wore these tights a few times all winter and fall, and this is probably the last time I'll have them on until next fall. Whoops! I love the cranberry color though- they'll be perfect for fall next year! Look at me, thinking about next fall. I swear, I already have so many outfits matched to places in my head for the summer. It's just too exciting not to think about frolicking in dresses in sandals!

This top is probably one of the most worn in my closet. I need more tops!! I only realized this winter when I didn't bring back but three dresses from home that I am seriously lacking in the top/sweater department because all I do is buy dresses. It's awful! I just love the lace on this one and how comfortable it is. I hate clingy tight tops- I was never an abercrombie tee kind of gal in High School or pull over vneck Hollister sweater gal. I like comfort! It makes me sad looking at these pictures and remembering how...these boots...are dead. I miss them! Ode to you, dearest boots.

I have this weird thing about not mentioning people's names on this here blog until I'm really good friends with them because if they were to see it somehow I would be so embarrassed that I'm blogging about someone I don't even know yet. But! There's this girl, and this other girl, and these two guys that have lately become close-to-being-able-to-be-mentioned-on-my-blog-status lately and I adore them!! This one girl in particular texted me a week or so ago and was like, "Hey Maggie! What are your top two favorite places to shop?" And I was excitedly like, "MODCLOTH! URBAN! LULUS! SHOPROUCHE!" And she was all like, "Thank you!!!! You dress so cute and you made me want to buy a dress!" It was so cute! I saw her at the mall this weekend and we shopped a little and she asked my advice and oh! It was wonderful! :)

P.S. Am I the only one who can not stop listening to Avril Lavigne's new album??? Because I can't. It's on repeat all day long. All. Day. Long.

My wardrobe is totally lacking tops as well. It's so annoying - I feel like I wear the same skirt/top combos all the time, just cos there's not enough choice. Yet I never find any I like when I go shopping...

Michele said...

I know how you feel about Spring! I can not wait for it either and FINALLY get to wear Spring clothes. Love love love this outfit. I really love that headband that you're wearing too. Where is it from? OH! And...I didn't know that Avril Lavigne had a new albulm? I must live under a rock or something. Ha. Have a wonderful day!

Shy, Chesterfield said...

I love the colours in the outfit! So pretty and will be perf3ect once spring... springs! I am so happy for your new job! I can't find one here for what I went to school for...so I pout about it daily!

As much as I love my Winter, I am secretly excited for Summer. It's just easier to get out and take pictures (another thing I love to do). I even maybe do have outfits planned.. but don't let Winter know that! haha

Those are some rad rights! Yes rad, not red, although the red color is pretty awesome too. This whole outfit is just so pretty!

I have yet to hear Avril's new cd (I'm always behind in pop culture) but if it's anything like her last 3, then I'm sure I will be obsessed. I've been a fan of hers since she hit the scene. She can't do no wrong!

Trou, .bleuebird said...

I love the lace top and the colors of the outfit. Gorgeous!

Rosie said...

You look beautiful as ever! Avril's new song makes me very happy too :) definitely a car number!

This is a very lovely outfit! the skirt is so bright and cheerful--it is sure a contrast to this dreary weather in San Francisco. You look lovely my dear! xoxo

Julie Iliana said...

Courtney Erin said...

I love the floral skirt (it's so perfect for spring - which I'm convinced should be here by now even though there's still a bit of snow on the ground here...)

You are all kinds of adorable. I want to take you home with me. (Not in a lesbian way, although I fully support gay rights.)

Those tights are soooo cute! I love that color!

Becky said...

Your outfit is so cute! I love every piece of it- the cranberry tights, the floral skirt, the lace top, the headband. LOVE IT!!

I know how you feel about looking forward to spring! I was teased while being home in Virginia where it was 50 degrees or warmer everyday and now I'm back in Philly and it's 40 degrees outside. Boo.
But it will be here soon enough!! And then we will have SUMMER!!! Ahhhhh can't wait! :)

And thank you SO much for your comment about my hair! It made me so happy and it was just so sweet of you! Thanks girl :)

Courtney said...

Haha you are so cute!! And your commentary just really made me chuckle, especially about the blogging about people part - I am THE same way. So funny.

That skirt is adorable, looks amazing with the textured tights. I hear you on the just buying dresses all the time thing, such a dilemma!

Great blog :)

Courtney xoxo

oh I miss you maggey! :) love all your pictures even the outdated ones. Someone used to say to me all the time...don't throw away any of your creations no matter how eeky looking it may be at the moment...when you look back at those pictures someday, you'll end up smiling for sure! :)

Isabella said...

I love the mix of prints, colors, and textures. Very visually interesting look!

Catherine said...

You're seriously so cute. I just want to hang out with you and go shopping. Is that weird? Haha :) I'm with you on the anticipation of summer... I have a few weeks until my spring break, then three weeks after, the seniors are out of school! It's crazy how fast this is happening.

Also, thank you SO much for your comment on my most recent post. I seriously smiled so much - I was kind of skeptical about starting the column because I was worried no one would like it or even read it. It means so much to me!

I hope all is well.

Natalie said...

I LOVE YOUR BOOTS. And skirt. And top. And yeah. :)

Don't worry, you are definitely not the last person to be on spring break. Mine isn't until the end of April. Tragic, I know. But holy crap, that's fantastic that summer is so quickly approaching!

I haven't heard any of Avril Lavinge's new album, but I definitely loved her back in the Sk8ter Boi days. ;D

blorange dice said...

woooo for blogging! these pictures rule. haha and i will have to check out avril's new album - i didn't know there was one. she's an old fav of mine (:

Ivonne said...

Maggey, you just wear the most adorable things, don't you? that skirt and tights are just pure awesomeness.

I've been buying nothing but dresses lately too! I do mean to buy some shirt from time to time but I think dresses are just easier to wear, no need to look for bottoms, it's all in one! :P
