Fashion Friday

I'm starting a weekly post called "Fashion Friday" today. Every Friday, I'll post post something about fashion, such as a type of clothing, a trend, a color, or a style I adore. To start us off, we have the coat, a most of the year essential. Hope you enjoy!

One Rainy Day....



Finally! We're getting some real rain here! I took advantage of this lovely precipitation and dressed up my sister Miriam in some rain-proof chic attire.

California Fall

Even though we are still wearing shorts and tees here in sunny Cali, you can still tell fall is in the air. It's in the little things, such as breakfast which looks lots more fallish thanks to my horrible photography skills.

Retro Coolness

I know, I know, it's a fridge. Not a dress, not a hairstyle, but a fridge. Even fridges though, are allowed to be retro cool, and if this one isn't I don't know what is. The little stickers are a nice touch too.
I found this beauty here.
Do you think it is possible for fridges to be cool?

this is a test

YAY! I'm so happy! I think I figured out how to add a pin it button to my pics! Please tell me if it works. Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving! Like the turkey cupcakes? My grandma taught Me and Syd how to make and decorate them.

Style?

Lately, I've been thinking about style. It can mean styles of things you like, but could it also be a box, that's hard to get out of. I would define my style as a mix of preppy, trendy, classy, and bohemian.

What does that mean though? Am I only allowed now to like things within that category? What if I like something that does not check any of the boxes? Do I not like it, or do I change all my boxes? What happens if I'm in a mood for preppy stuff one day, and boho the next? Is my "personal style" limiting me to what I like as well as forcing me to like other things?

Then I had a thought.

 I'll be different that other people, and not have a personal style, but instead go from day to day with what I like. Some days, I might feel in the mood for a surfer vibe, while on others a new york feel. So what do you think? Am I crazy, or do you feel the same?

Smiles are chic


Right now, I'm trying to d.i.y. my closet and turn some of my clothes from drab to fab. O.k., maybe not drab, but I 'd like to add some more personality to my wardrobe. To start off, Here's a black tee that I bleach painted using this tutorial. It was super easy, fun, and took like 15 minutes. P.S. use a paintbrush you don't  mind destroying because the bleach will completely disintegrate the bristles.

Schoolgirl Loves

I know school started a while ago, but I'm still falling for these notebooks and binders and such. I origionally was looking for a binder I owned to blog about but instead found all this other stuff. I should have called this schoolgirl distractions.....

Is this cute or what? I'm in love with this artist's work.



I only like the front, but it's still cool. Found it here.


More from the first designer. Absolutely adore his style! I think this is supposed to be a decal for your laptop or tablet. I found it here.

You can't go wrong with NYC, Paris, and London. Found it here.

I'm Back


Sorry about the lack of posts lately, but between lots of school, sorta unplugging, and going camping I've not been such a great blogger. I'm trying to get back on schedule and  can't wait to show you a whole bunch of goodies I planned, but first I thought I'd show you a few pics from camping.
We got super close to a whole family of deer on one of our hikes.

Just love this pic of Miriam
