Them Bones

sweater ... vintage Calvin Klein
leggings ... Love Melrose

spiked necklace ... Aeropostale 
College has certainly taken its toll on what I define as interests and hobbies. While I aspire for a job in the fashion industry and am currently on the internship hunt, the things I used to be interested in have been left behind. Writing, for instance. I could make excuses and blame the perpetual writing assignments I receive in classes making me want to rest my fingers and mind from any other kind of writing, but that's where my realization sets in that if I was passionate about it, I would get it done. 

I cannot make promises to anyone, but I can aim for improvement and set smaller goals.

Now that I've cleared my conscious. I can get back into the swing of things. Pardon my rusty fingers. 

I will not tell a lie; these photos are from not this winter but the last winter. A winter that was so much more gentle to us. A winter that let me wear a jean jacket and leggings and not feel like my blood was about to freeze in my veins. 

If you have not heard, Levi's been named one of the most ethical companies in the world by The Ethisphere Institute, as have Gap and H&M. I will be taking an active stand in supporting these companies by browsing them first before other retailers. That being said, my Levi's jacket is actually my mothers, an even more ethical way to take care of the environment by not making a footprint at all! 

Aeropostale should be your hidden treasure trove for jewelry, shoes, and even clothing. I am in absolute love with Aero; they have really blossomed with their offerings in the recent years, and to me it seems like a best kept secret. With their frequent coupons and free shipping offers, it can be your secret too without ever having to enter the store. I recommend their necklaces. They have dainty bauble-eqsue pieces in addition to luxe looking statement jewels. I have filled a shopping cart with necklaces from Aero and I am not ashamed to mention it. 

Stay thrifty my friends.

Pretty Young Thing

Blazer ... Salvation Army
Tank Top ... Rock & Republic, Kohl's
Pants ... H&M
Shoes ... Zara

Well I've definitely been AWOL for a while... Finals. End of freshman year. Boys. Friends. Working. SUMMER. :) 

I don't have much to say... Other than hello again. I don't know how regularly I'll be posting... I need a tripod that works, or a friend who I don't get camera shy in front of. It's a struggle. 

I'll be spending my summer peacefully: watching Netflix, working at my local restaurant, and trying to have a happy few months before I go back to school. The goal for this summer isn't to try and work and make money and fill my time with activities, although all of those things can be helpful and joyful. The goal for me is to just feel... whole, and happy. However that is achieved. Right now, happiness for me is... Listening to The National, watching Gossip Girl, and sipping on tea. I hope you all are having a glorious beginning to your summers; don't work too hard! The goal is to have fun while you can. :)

Look at all the Lovely People

top ... Gap, mom's
skirt ... mom's
shoes ... Madden Girl

I honestly have no idea when these were taken. I was uploading photos and all of the sudden these appeared. Alter ego?
SpringFest at my college this weekend. Things are about to get weird. :)

P.S. Sorry about the lack of life over here. Writers block must come from piles of school work and exhaustion. For me it does at least.
