Spring Break

My friends and I took a trip to Chicago last weekend and had a BLAST!!! We'll be going back soon! Didn't take as many pictures as I would've liked, too busy having fun. But next time.

Here are some of the shots that I got.

Have't decided if I'll put up a post of the things I bought while there, so enjoy this in the mean time.

Dinner was delicious! And so were the left overs.

This hair...

The Ladies

At a Jazz Club...good times

Ready to get back to the real world, aka school.

OOTD: Paint Strokes

Hey this week is almost over. I can already feel the breeze from Lake Michigan on my face!

I haven't worn these pants (except for in my lookbook here) so I thought I'd take them out for a spin.

I found it kind of strange that people were giving me odd looks because of them. It's a print, relax. To each his own I guess.

Top: Target, I think it might be from the maternity section.
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Aldo
Watch: MK

It's about to get REAL!

OOTD: Tartan you Glad it's not Plaid

Hey guys,

I had a really good weekend, which I was lucky enough to have transition into a really good Monday. Hope you can say the same! Can't wait for it to get warmer so I can take some shots outside.

While taking pictures someone asked if i was taking modeling pictures for American Eagle, I laughed. Anyway, I went all out for this preppy look.

When I got this sweater I immediately fell in love with the TARTAN pattern. Yes, Tartan, after doing some research, Tartan is the pattern (Scottish families often have their own design) while a PLAID is the garment made from the fabric with the Tartan pattern on it. The two terms are synonymous here in the States though, but hope that clears things up.

OOTD: Tribal Pink

As the weather gets warmer the colors get brighter. My wardrobe is no different. I paired this over-sized geometric/tribal sweater with these HOT PINK pants. Wanted to celebrate the start of the weekend! The closer spring break gets the more anxious I am to be done with classes, at least for a week.

I thought I'd show my old glasses some love, plus I think they went well with the geometric shapes on my top. The pink of my pants brought out the pink sparkles in my glitter shoes too. Match made in heaven.

My hair is a twist out with curlers on the end (from those same cheetah print soft curlers).

OOTD: Leather & Suede

I usually don't do this's an impromptu outfit of the day. I think it's this hair, it makes me want to put a little more effort in. It wont last long though (the effects, not the hair).

Really simple look, it was a good opportunity for me to rock my new gold studded jacket.

Leather Jacket: F21 (recent)
Jean top: Walmart (a long time ago)
Disco Pants: American Apparel (I need a new pair of black ones, or a smaller rear)
Boots: Francesca's (recent, but last pair)

My hair was a combination of a curling wand (the bottom layer) and soft curlers (top layer).
Pictures at the bottom.

HAIR (sewn in by Sheri see more here)
Total of 12 curlers
Went back with a curling wand to tame the frizz from the curlers and elongate the bottom layer.

Have a BLESSED day!

OOTD: Psychedelic Neon

I took a slight departure from my usual Chiffon button up shirts with this top. Although made from the same material, this one is in the style of a sweatshirt or sweater which I really liked.

I thought it was unique especially with the bright print and colors, very springy. To be honest I'm not even sure what the pattern is, which also adds to it's uniqueness.

I wore simple black skinny pants and shoes to keep the attention on the top.

Top: F21 (recently)
Pants F21 (a while ago)
Shoes: See by Chloe (a while ago)

Keep it groovy
