las montanas

I feel like I haven't updated you guys in FOREVER. So sorry... the end of my senior year of college is fast approaching (one full week of classes, OMG OMG) and I'm finding myself sort of freaking out about what my future will be like. My passion is writing, and I chose to major in a related field (English), but now I'm struggling to decide on what I should do in terms of a career. I've been looking into advertising firms and the like, since that seems the most likely place I'd be able to exercise my creativity and still be able to eat. Maybe a copywriter? I don't know much about that. Must exercise Google-fu more.

In the meantime, here are some pictures from another trip to the mountains that I've been meaning to post for a while now. The beau's mom's best friend (COMPLEXITY) has a house in the mountains near here, so all of us went up for a little weekend mini vacation.

And of course... no day is complete without a short trip to Target to try on random clearance items. I actually had to change into a different shirt when we went, thanks to an unfortunate mustard-squelching accident.

This is what I wore there. ^

I liked the colors in this dress, but the band was just a smidge too tight for my tastes.

Also tried on my first romper. You can probably tell how I felt about the result, haha.

I ended up buying this dress, but the picture came out really dark so I dont' know how much of it you can actually see. I'll have to do an outfit post featuring it in the near future.

Also! I'm thinking I might hunt down a blogger meme or something I can fill out and post, just to give you guys a little more information about who I am personally. If anyone knows of something like that, go ahead and drop me a line! :)

sightseeing ootd

I wore an outfit the other day that was my attempt at the pattern and color mixing that's really hot this season... but I failed to take pictures. Go me.

So I present to you instead: Outfit of the Easter Activities.

This whole outfit is thrifted except for the flats, which are from Target, and the headband, which is from F21. :)

BONUS SHOT: The view from Caesar's Head.

I love South Carolina.

dressing for mood

Well, today started out alright... It's the beginning of Easter Break today, so I was feeling rather cheerful at the prospect of having a few days off. Except after I showered and got dressed (and snapped a few pictures), I got the news that I was turned down for a job I was really hoping to get. Lame.

Anyway! I'm applying to some other places today, and in light of that, I have changed clothes to try and brighten my spirits a little. I took a vintage gown and irreverently hacked off a foot of fabric from the bottom. O:

First outfit:

This whole outfit is thrifted... and cost a total of $7. But I opted for something a little lighter and more cheerful after yucky news.

Second outfit:

Mutilated vintage gown: Thrifted
Gold bow belt: ON
Frilly shrug: Thrifted
Cognac brown cut-out flats: Payless
