let me begin...








On me: Thrifted sweater, Gap skinnies, coat, and beanie, F21 oxfords
On Doug: BR jeans, aldo shoes, Brooks Brothers coat, target beanie



Sometimes I feel like we are told to take life a little too seriously--"be proper, be polite, be a lady/gentlemen. Look like this, dress like that. Have your life completely planned out by the time you graduate, get a job, make money, get married, settle down, get old, and die." 

And that's definitely not okay with me. I'm going to break the rules and make my own story, my own adventures, and my own scars. 

I'm enjoying the last few days before my break is over. I'm really not looking forward to going back to class, especially days that last forever. So what do you do when times start grinding you down? 

JUMP AROUND! 



And yes, I was listening to House of Pain's Jump Around as I typed this!

Haha I love your expression in the last picture. I'm dreading going back to school too! Ugh. Maybe I should jump around as well to make myself feel a little better. :)

There's nothing to be ashamed of if you love shopping at thrift stores! You can save quite a bit of money when you do. AND the style is so much better there. You definitely won't be walking down the street and seeing someone wearing the same exact sweater as you! :) I think I have a bit of a phobia with wearing clothes that people have worn before. I wish I could just get over it because thrift stores really are amazing! Your beanie is very cute, by the way :)

You are perfect! you seem like such a real person, not pretentious at all. more fashion bloggers ought to be like you.

I just found you through a series of blog jumping, and the ones i saw before yours

(like fashion toast, flashes of style)
seem so uptight and take themselves way too seriously! as if they are god-like and can do no wrong. falseness all around.

anyway.. thanks for being so true to yourself, and awesome at the same time!
