Je na'i pas le temps

A few days ago my grandmother gave me two French translation books. One dates from the mid-60's. Aren't french translation books lovely? Of course, what the title of this post says is not lovely.."I have no time!" Which is true. My great procrastination skills have given me three days, four projects, and a multitude of math assignments. I will be greatly lacking in the number of posts I give during this next week. However, after May 30th I am done. With high school work. Forever.

For now I will silently lust after these Calvin Klein heels......perhaps grad money will help?

We both are bi-polar

The weather is bi-polar. One day it decides to jump to the mid-90s, the next it is 75F and windy. Frankly, I have no idea what to wear anymore. I spent yesterday at home in pajama pants because the back of my legs were far too sunburned for pants. Today, I thought i would suffer a little but the pants aren't too bad so far on my poor fried legs. As mentioned before, my wonderful boyfriend returned last night and he got me a great necklace while he was away. I could not get a decent picture of it, but the red dot/speck is a real wild rosebud only found in Colorado.

Beaches and proposals

I am getting married! No, just kidding. This boy isn't even my boyfriend. (He is my fashion guy, in case you were wondering) On Monday I headed down to a beach (there is an abundance in Southern California) for a school-organized trip. Sorry, i don't have a decent photo of what i am wearing. But for most of the day I was wearing a two-piece and you all don't need to see my farmer's tan white legs quite yet. Just a side note, my boyfriend came back from Colorado today! After 12 days of not seeing him, he actually managed to surprise me in more ways than one. (insert smiley icon here)

It is just beautiful here.

Give it a rest

So far, today has proved not to be boring but relaxing. I have yet to crack open a school book and instead reached for my new June copy of Real Simple. It is a magazine aimed at the 30-40 something group of mothers, but I find my seventeen year young self enjoys all of the articles just as much as those found in Nylon or Vogue. Of course, what else would I drink on a hot summer day but hot chocolate. (There were no more Kreug K-cups of coffee.)

Now I shall wait for my boyfriend to return my call before I venture off to the grocery store.

Help the poor soul

My impending graduation from high school is stressful.
My life seems like a chaotic abyss.
I need to do a DIY project for this Marc Jacobs tee.

Let's talk

We all need that certain friend we can talk to about fashion. Whether it is what you are wearing or if that model really is crazy..they just need to be there. Luckily, mine's a guy. And no he is not gay. Today we talked about how we would dress up everyday if our town wasn't so dumpy. Really, it is not glamourous on any level where I live. Trust me. Then we took a look at some awesome couture looks. And he showed me two fabulous models. Karen Elson and Lily Cole.

This Valentino is like a work of art. Stunning.

Elie Saab is wonderful.

Karen Elson.

She can pull off the pink face.

And Lily Cole. We both agreed she has a "china doll face."

All pics from And I HIGHLY recommend looking up more of those two.

Great wall of narcism

Sadly, there is no other person to take pics of my outfits, so last night I decided to take the camera into my own hands, or at least set it on 10 second delay. I think I spent over thirty minutes trying to take pictures. It seemed that I had gotten all of the individual shots of clothing down but I had yet to find a place to snap the full size. And finally, I went back to where I first tried to take pics, setup the camera with delay and shot a full size. These pics are from last night, but this is what I wore today. Anyone think my picture taking got any better?
Comments would be lovely. Thanks.

Of course, here is my hair. Sadly, it didn't quite turn out like this this morning..

Mother's Day polo games

Well, today was the day where moms are supposed to be celebrated. Did you know it was the one hundred year anniversary as well? Looky here. So today was bumming around the house, catering to all of my family's mothers. Which, in case you were wondering, there were five present. Sorry for the lack of quality with the pics, they were taken in a mad rush.

Give me some inspiration

I need some inspiration.
So I went on an adventure scouring the internet for some spring/summer looks.

This look is quite old. 2006. But it still seems appropriate.

Sequin shrug anyone?

This makes me regret not buying some bright shorts the other day.

There needs to be more hats in the summer.

I could do without the jacket for summer.

Plaid please? In mini form?

So simple, yet it works.

Another fedora. And some awesome heels.

Boy or girl? I don't care. It somehow works.

Tutu cachoo

Yes, I did base my title off a Beatles song, but that is not important. I FINALLY have evidence of those wonderful tutus I made. The 6th of May is one of my best friend's birthdays so three of us decided tutus would be a good idea. These all took roughly one hour to make, which is not too shabby considering the results. This was of great help in the process. Of course, what do you do when you have a poofy tutu to wear and some spare time? Take pictures. Duh.  

We even got the boys in on it...

Purple "Fleur De Lis" Eater

It is getting a bit warm outside for me to be wear half sleeves, but I thought I might as well try to wear this out one more time. I adore the bell-like sleeves, the weird ruffles, and of course the purple. The first pic is most like the color that appears on the jacket. Plus, my mom's closet is always a good place to find a tank for layering.

Looks like I cut my hair......I didn't.
