Tuesday, May 7

remember when i used to be a style blogger...? I forgot, too.

DSC_1441 Right, right. I semi-frequently post what I'm wearing and it isn't regular at ALL and maybe I should just quit "style blogging" all together. I mean, there are a lot of things I don't like about style blogging and while I know some people do it very well and I love them for it, sometimes it is enough to make me bonkers. Plus, there's the fact that if I wasn't allowed to write about my day or my ten thousand emotions I might burst. Sometimes I start to take myself too seriously and can't seem to decide if I want to be just a lifestyle blogger or a style blogger. And then I think, wow, Maggie. Stop thinking so much about it and just write what you want because if there's one thing that seems to be a constant it's that I come back to this here teensy corner of the universe to just document and talk openly about life. I think you all are pretty fantastic though for sticking around and you all get that I'm just kind of a whole package of clothes, emotions, honesty, and whatever else I talk about.

But seriously, thank you all for letting me just be me.

Anyways, today was a DAY to be talked about. Not only did the cutest very obviously gay and wonderful man approach me on the street and watch these outfit photos be taken until jumping in one himself, but my best friend who I have known since the very first day of college aced the heck out of her MCAT's (and by that I mean falling in the 99% percentile) which made me cry on my drive home from squeezing her insides rotten. This whole college journey thing is such an emotional intensive experience and to see someone you love come out on top is amazing. I feel lucky to have been a part of her experience every step of the way. LAURA, you are an inspiration. And now I'll be able to say I know an Ivy League medical student in 2014.

Today marks the first day that it hit eighty degrees here and I took a bit of money out of my photography dough (and then put the rest in my savings for Seattle! huzzah!) from a couple weeks ago towards these new Saltwaters. Today also marks the first day I decided to wear my hair like this in public. Despite the few people who asked me if it took forever to do, truthfully, I wore down and did it like this because I was much too tired to shower this morning. And I kind of think I look like Princess Leia, too, but this is my new favorite thing to do to my hair because it's all out of my face. That is a gift, ladies and gentlemen.

My Seattle countdown is ten days. I'm freaking out.

Just in case you thought I was kidding, no. He really did ask for a picture.
And he should really model. Look at that bone structure!

YOU ARE SO CUTE. I adore the bows and your shoes are just like bam and I really wish I could do my hair like that all the time except I don't know how to do it myself so somebody should teach me and that guy does seem to exude much aura of fabulosity.

That's SO FANTASTIC about your MCAT ass kicking friend! Congratulations Laura! Gahhhhhh that's so freaking exciting.

I say post whatever you feel like posting about, I love the randomness of your blog - it always feels very genuine.

The first picture here is amazing, I love it.

This is why I love you to pieces! You are real, and you are YOU! Can't really ask for anything more than that can you?? But seriously girl, you inspire me and that hair is incredible. And so is you male model stranger friend.

You know, you should write about whatever you want. This is your blog after all! And I'm sure that the readers will continue to read it no matter what topic/kind of blog you choose. I used to publish only outfit posts when I started blogging, but now I only post two or maybe three outfit posts a month and the rest of the posts are just about my life/random. So whatever.
Oh and congratulations to your friend! It's awesome.
And about the photos: that dress is freaking adorable and you look woderful with your hair like that.

love LOVE the hair. it ends up being the only way to get hair truly out of your way, right? even top buns seem to come crashing down after a while for me.

and LOVE the new saltwaters! they are darling. you're gonna wear the heck out of them.

I think that very short "Bettie bangs" and maybe some drastic very pale beige-blonde highlights would really suit you. Just a thought.
Cos you're quite striking already! ;)
