A Ray of Sunshine

With all the stress around us there is definitely nothing more relaxing than the sun and the perfect weather it's been giving us lately.

So I'm not gonna say much today cause I got this huge research paper due at midnight heehee.   But this is what I wore: a bright yellow and white plaid shirt, brown sandals, denim shorts, and an awesome yellow hat!  I liked how my bag went with the outfit too, kind of reminded me of color-blocking.

Praise the Lord!

Finals Or Fun?

 So I know this is our last week of classes and that huge papers and presentations are due, but amidst all the stress I can't help but take some free time ;)   Ever since I started coming here, I've definitely learned how to play pool.  If you don't know how, you should try. It's pretty simple and looks cool.

Well, today we had our final for our advanced conducting class, and I got to admit it was pretty bomb.  Our music department is so different from most other schools.... Not completely sure yet if I hate it or love it. 
Anyways no one but our instructor would have us conduct Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" for the first half of our final (I swear we've never done anything like that in class! It was so random.)  Of course, no one but me would actually start break dancing in class.  I didn't realize we had actually started the final, I thought we were supposed to do Mozart  : /  At least I got extra credit points for moonwalking :)  LOL.


Oh yeah, so back to fashion... this is a fashion blog after all.  I went pretty casual/collegiate today.  However I still got quite a few comments.  I styled my plaid shirt differently today by tying the bottom and wearing a cami underneath. I also finally pulled out my knee-length denim shorts and my white Reebok (shoes). Then I added the final touches with my cross necklace and hoop earings.  One really cool detail I want to point out though is the shirt. Seriously check it out! It's got like this awesome splattered paint on it.  Pretty legit.  I'm guessing it was made like this but I don't know, since I got this as well at the clothing exchange :)

So don't get overstressed and keep this verse in your thoughts as you go through these next few weeks.

He gives strength to the weary
   and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
   and young men stumble and fall;  
but those who hope in the LORD
   will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
   they will run and not grow weary,
   they will walk and not be faint. 

Isaiah 40:28-31

Sunflowers and Flip-Flops!

So today was the last day of choir at it was amazing!  and I finally got the chance to conduct a song :)  It was so much fun.   Only a week and a half left till summer, and I can feel it.  The weather has been crazy, it's so hot here.

Oh how I love this dress! I just got it at a clothing exchange this past weekend.  However the super amazing bow, do not come with it.  I added it using a bobby pin lol.  The bow is actually off a headband I had years ago, I knew the bow would come handy one day.  The other thing I'd like to point out is the red headband. I saw a friend of mine wear an adorable navy blue and white outfit with a red belt, which gave me the idea of wearing a red headband with my blue and white dress.  heehee

 Lastly I really wanted to point out my friend's feet.  Why?  Cause she happened to be walking by after I had just finished taking pictures and she had the cutest flip-flops on... and they matched her nail polish ;)

Anyways.... I just recently (yesterday) started taking my blog pics with a tripod all by myself.  I do feel kind of crazy... pointing my camera against a wall for five minutes adjusting the frame, then running back and forth hoping I actually pop up in the picture, and smiling awkwardly as the camera counts...10. 9. 8. 7... you get the idea.   But hey you gotta do what you gotta do.  How do you get your blog pictures done?

Pastels and Plaid

Hey everyone!
So I know Easter already passed, (click here for my post on Easter), but I still decided to wear this pastel plaid shirt today.  It was just too fun and summery to not wear bright colors and shorts. 
And my hair is finally growing long enough to style differently  :) I pinned back the sides to make it kind of look like I had a half pony.  I can't wait for my hair to be long again, I miss it.

Life has been getting the best of me lately.  In this case, pink eye.  Thus the lack of mascara in any of the following photos.  So I've kind of been forced to go all natural this week, though it was actually relieving. One thing less to stress about.
