Casual Thursday

I'm addicted to making these skirts I have into shirts. I don't even know why I buy them. I hate the way they look on me. But the one I'm wearing below, I love the print! Today, I just wanted to relax my feet from heels. Walking around campus all day and then going to practice at night takes a toll on my feet. So, tennis and comfy clothes today. 

People act so shocked when they realize, "she's wearing the skirt that I have as a shirt!" Okay, big deal. Why not? Why not make more use of your clothes? It happens to look better on me this way! Ever have people analyze your outfits every single day? Well, this is what I deal with on a daily basis. Not that it gets to me but it's the end of the school year now, are they not use to me yet?

The last two pics are me actually coming from class. A small view of the school of arts and humanities building.

I'm beyond over school at this point. I hate the end of the semester. It's always the most stressful. Why? I don't know. I've been keeping up with my work, but this is the time all of the teachers give big final projects at the same time. Ugh!

I'm off to the computer lab even though it's 11:15pm. I can't stay in my room and work, too much distraction.

Wide Flared Shorts

"Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do."
           -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 

 These are a pair of shorts that I got from the thrift store. I thought they were a skirt when I picked it up. Little to my surprise I had to step into them twice! I'm glad they turned out to be shorts. I think it makes them way more chic! They're very high-waist. They go way past my belly button and boy do I love that!!

The end of school is getting very close. We're out May 5th, meaning more stress for me. I always wait until the last minute to do all of my final assignments. Tonight I have to stay up to finish a three page paper and answer sixteen questions for my American Government class. It's already 11:25pm here. *sigh* 

Having a huge fashion show at the end of the school year, not a good idea. That's what's taking most of my time. Planning for that and plus, we have long practices. Somethings got to give. Well, I'm off to start on my work. 

Side Note - I did a photo shoot today. It was with a photographer student from the state college up the road from my school. Very excited for you guys to see the outcome. They came out great. Oh, and just so you know I'm still working with a crappy camera...

"Obstacles are those frightful 
things you see when you 
take your eyes off your goal." 

 -Henry Ford

I was very excited to FINALLY try out a turban. I've been wanting to try this out for months now. I must say, I'm in love! I will definitely be buying more prints. I can't wait.! I have so many plans on how I want to wear them. This one is actually just a scarf (a winter scarf) that I made good use of. It'll have to do until I get some  material to make more turbans out of.

Today, I went to the thrift store. I was in desperate need of it too! I didn't get much, just four pieces. I had to put two items back. (so embarrassing) I hadn't planned on going so you know, I wasn't prepared! I was pretty disappointed though. The two pieces I put back were actually my favorite ones but they were the most expensive. That's one thing I hate about the thrift stores in my area, they're pricier then the ones I go to in Orlando. So, I'll do a separate post on what I got. Hopefully, more things will be added to that by then.

"Where man sees but withered leaves, God sees sweet flowers growing. "

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
-Charles Wesley

Happy Easter guys! I hope everyone has a wonderful one. 

New Look!

I've always wanted a super stylish blog but I never knew how to create one. Well, I'm learning. A little research can go a long way. Even if it causes me to be up all night. It's currently 3:48am and I have to be up at 11am for Easter service. It's all worth it. I really enjoy doing this!

Anyway, I want you guys to take a look at the new design of the blog. I didn't really do too much. Changed a few fonts, moved some pictures around. I only changed the post on the first page just to give you an idea of how I will be posting from now on. I think my blog has so much more personality now. I'm still not finished. I have more things to learn, so you'll probably be seeing more changes as the days go on.

Tell me what you think. I would love to know.

No Trespassing!

I was stuck using my old regular digital camera, so the pictures look sucky. At least to me they do. Anyways, I'm swamped with work. I took procrastination to the next level this time! I have a paper in ALL of my classes and I haven't finished any of them yet. I have to finish two of them tonight! It's 10:00pm now. I did get started on one, thankfully. So, I'll be up all night making sure that I get it done. Well, I guess I should get off of here so I can get started. I don't want to be up too late!

...I know that I can count on you

Old favorite dress of mine! I always find new ways to re-invent it...I wear it different each time I wear it. I love the print, it has little leaves all over it. This cropped top I'm wearing, you've seen recently, shows why I love them so much. The way I got to wear my dress as a skirt.

Today was a very fast day. I literally woke up, got dress, took pics and left. I missed my first and only class this morning, I overslept. I really have got to stop doing that. It seems like I can't get up early to save my life anymore. But when it's the summer time, I can go to bed at 4 and get up at 8 and feel like I slept for days. I don't get it! Anyways, after I took pics I left to go to Orlando. So, no school today really and that made it a good day :)

Strong Heart; Peaceful Mind

Glad to say I felt very good today, this outfit helped! I've said that I was bored with my wardrobe lately, well this outfit has definitely got me back into the swing of things. I love mixing prints. It's one of my favorite trends.  I got the shirt and shorts from a thrift store in Orlando last fall. One of my best purchases! I love the print on the shirt. I just wish that the sleeves weren't so big.

I had a very simple day. I had two classes, which were in the morning, so I had the whole day to do nothing! And that's exactly what I did, nothing. How did I get into this routine of doing nothing all day? I don't understand it. There's definitely things I need to get done but I seem to never do them. I think it's because I don't write out my schedule anymore. I use to plan out my whole day on my dry erase board and I got things done. It's time to go back to that!

If you take me out of here, I'll smile again...

Yesterday, I made a complaint about being bored with my wardrobe. Today, I feel completely different. For one I brought my heels back out. I use to wear them every single day. So, now it feels like I'm doing something different since I haven't worn them in almost 3 months straight. Also my top is a skirt...just being creative. And don't mind my beat up old red shoes. I got them when I was 16. It's safe to say they have ran their course. All in all, today was a good day....outfit wise.

School is still a drag but the end is coming really soon and I'm going to really miss it. Even though I complain about it a lot, I do enjoy being here. If it had the major I wanted to do, I would definitely stay. I do hate the campus but you get attached to things after you've been there for so long. I always ask myself, "Am I really sure I want to leave?" I don't want to be miserable when I leave. Just things to think about.

P.S.- I love my hair now. It's funny what time can do. All I needed was time to get use to it! Dress it up a little, see it at it's best and there you go! Thanks for all of your comments and compliments. Definitely helped me feel better.
