What I Wore: MoMo edition

Dress: H&M//TShirt; Target// Scarf: Thrifted// Sandals: Aldo

 DISCLAIMER: This is a really old post that never got published. The weather is becoming a wee bit more spring like so I figured this would be an appropriate time to share. And I'm currently really missing that yard!

So this is my own sort of "Rule Breaking Monday (err..Tuesday)" post. I'm not big on t-shirts under sundresses. I could tell you lots of stories of bad dress:t-shirt combinations but I'm sure you've seen 'em. So I just try to steer away from them at all costs.

Except with this dress. I love this dress. It's cool and light and the color is just yummy. Not to mention, I wore it to my third and final (thus far) Jonas Brothers concert. It has a special place in my heart (EDIT: did you hear? they are going to be recording again soon!). Really, the only way to modestify this bad boy is wear a t-shirt under it so I didn't wear it a lot (see above). But it hit me one day, it doesn't have to be just a plain white t-shirt under it! I could do cool colors, patterns, whatever the heck I wanted. Et voila! This outfit (EDIT: and many more!) was born.

Current State of the Union

Elizabeth Messina for Ruche

In the Clique series, at the end of each day, Massie Block would write her "Current State of the Union" so I thought I would follow suit and do at least a weekly rundown of what's happenin'.

And I don't know about what Massie does in the Clique series because I read them all. And I especially didn't read the last one while driving to Utah for my sophomore year of college. Preposterous.

Feeling: Crafty. All I want to do is make pretty things and look at pretty things. I unfortunately have neither time nor space nor money for crafty supplies. I have been working in my Smash book though! Here's to pseudo scrapbooking!

Watching: PRETTY LITTLE LIARS! Tonight, we finally find out who "A" is. Thank. Goodness.

Reading: Uh....textbooks. I need to start a good book. I've got a wishlist on Amazon going though so hopefully I can do some reading in a couple weeks once school winds down a little.

Listening to: Ben l'Oncle. Yay frenchies!

Drinking: Peach tea. Oh man. Alison like drinking this and I had had a sip here and there and thought it was good but yesterday I actually had my own. It was fantastic (and a great excuse to use my teacup!)

Eating: Corned beef and cabbage. MMMMM.

Craving: Indian food. Hopefully going this week!

Weather: It snowed this morning and then got super nice and sunny. It's still a little chilly but sunny.

School: Just getting over the hump. 2 more weeks and it'll all be down hill from there!

Something fun I did last week: Saturday night, I stayed home by myself, watched Harry Potter and doodled. It was marvelous. Wow, I sound pathetic. But believe me, it was great.

Looking forward to: Hunger Games! I am going on Thursday with my aunt and I CANNOT wait. I'm not only excited to see the movie but to also hang out with her!

So there it is friends. As time goes on, I'll probably add to the list but here's a pretty good summary of what's up.

EDIT: I already forgot the whole Over and Out thing! So, uh...

Over and Out.

Identity Crisis

(I googled identity crisis and this popped up. I just like her hair.)

I'm going through a blogging identity crisis my friends. I don't really know what I want me little buddy here to be. Is it a fashion blog? Is it a lifestyle blog? Is it an essay blog? IS IT EVEN A BLOG?! (That's what an identity crisis will do to a girl. I took a few deep breathes and I'm ok now.) 

So, as I am not one to present a problem without a solution, here is what I'm going to do about it.

  1. Read more.
  2. Post more.
  3. Write more (on the blog and on, oh what's that thing called...oh yeah, paper)
  4. Take more pictures.
  5. Actually do some of things I see on Pinterest.
  6. Do something creative at least once a week. (see above)
  7. Dance.
I'm telling you all this because I'm going to need your help in this difficult journey to self-discovery (again, this is what an identity crisis will do to a girl. why so dramatic?) So starting with number one, what are some of your favorite non-fashion, non-lifestyle blogs? Who are the best, but still fun, writers out there on the interwebs?

Comment and your name will be put in a drawing. My sponsor, Shelby's Hand, will be giving away a high-five to a commenter drawn at random.

Over and Out.

     8. End all my posts with Over and Out.

BYU Blogger Meet-Up

If you are interested in stalking me, this is where I will be tonight! Even if you don't have a blog but live in Provo and like to do fun things, you should come! Get more info {here}. I've never been to a meet-up before and I can't wait to meet everyone!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go stare at my closet for the next oh, 8 hours or so. So. Much. Pressure!
