Storm Front

This is what I wore today. All I really did was clean my room and organize some things. I found this concert tee shirt last week when we cleaned out the attic. It is from a Billy Joel concert my mom went to in 1990. I thought it was pretty cool, so I decided to keep it and I finally got to wear it today. I just started reading The Alchemist for summer reading, and I actually like it so far. Hopefully it will stay good because I hate when the summer reading books are dreadful. What do you guys have to read for summer, if you actually are required to read anything?

Shirt: Vintage
Shorts: The Gap

I wore this outfit yesterday just to run errands with my mom and then babysit my cousins. These are the high-waisted shorts I bought on sale at Urban Outfitters last week for $20 and I really think they are the perfect alternative to the cutoffs I have been wearing all summer long. I went to the beach for a little today but when the clouds started rolling in we were forced to leave. It was also a 'red flag' so we couldn't even go in the ocean either. What a great beach day !

Shirt: Mom's
Shorts: UO

Leather and Lace

Today my mom and I cleaned out half of our attic because it was raining. The lace slip pictured below is probably my favorite thing out of what we found. We came across a black vintage bodysuit with buttons down the front that accidentally was put in the pile of stuff we are selling for our garage sale so I am going to have to find it. Yesterday I found this leather jacket in my youngest brother's closet along with the small blue blazer I posted yesterday. I was pretty excited because I finally found something that fits me pretty well and now I don't have to go out and buy one. I honestly don't possibly think it could have actually been his because it's pretty big so I have been wondering where it came from. I guess I will ask my mom later..

Jacket: Unknown
Slip: Mom's
Leggings: Target
Shirt (Underneath): Old Navy; I really wanted to wear a black tank top with it because the shirt looks kind of awkward but mine is in the wash

It's Been Awhile

Alright, well a lot has happened in the past few days which is the reason why I have not posted.
On Friday I went to my good friend's house and then slept over. It was too fun to even explain. That night we went shopping at Anthropologie which was good because they had a lot of stuff on sale.
I got this vest there but I am almost positive I am returning it because I feel like $40 was too much to spend on it. What do you guys think?

Saturday morning was even more exciting, though. We decided it would be fun to check out the thrift store around the corner from her house. I got a three belts and a blazer. Today I decided to put together an outfit for each of the things that I purchased, which proved to be a good way to spend my time.
Blazer: thrifted, Shirt: unknown, Jeans: American EagleI would consider this blazer a pretty amazing find. It is Ralph Lauren and still has the tags on it. I bought it for $15 when it was originally $250. It will be great to throw on in the fall and spring for school when I don't feel like putting together an outfit because it is super comfy.

These belts were each $1. I was so excited to find some cute, cheap belts since I have been obsessed with them lately.

Dress: Abercrombie, Shirt: Brother's, Belt: thrifted
I decided to start with the blue one since it is my favorite. The color is amazing and I really like it against the gold. It will definitely be great to add to otherwise boring outfits.

Shirt: unknown, Belt: thrifted, Skirt: Ralp Lauren dress from when I was little
I like this belt a lot too. I am not sure that its going to be that easy to pair with things though because of the color, which I think is definitely a little bit off.

Blazer: little brother's, Shirt: Ann Taylor, Belt: thrifted
This belt will be great to pair with a lot of things. I have been wanting a braided belt for a while so it was great to get one for only a dollar.

When we returned from the thrift store we came home to just about the coolest thing I have ever seen. My friend's house is probably my favorite house ever; it is really old and just about everything about it is absolutely gorgeous. Anyways, in her kitchen their was a closet that the previous owners had put in but my friend's mom thought their may be a hidden servant's staircase behind the closet wall that they had covered up and there was! When the wall was demolished there were stairs leading up to a closet upstairs that the other owners had put in as well. Then, when we pulled up the floor and we had practically a whole staircase in front of our eyes, they only have to add a few at the bottom. Well, every kid always dreams of finding a secret passageway in their house. The only thing is I am too old to pass for a kid at this point and it wasn't actually in my house, hahahaa. This may sound really stupid to you but I really did think that it was awesome.
I managed to take a couple of pictures on my cell phone:

From the bottom..

From the top.. isn't the ledge cute?

A couple hours after I got home from my friend's my two cousins arrived for the visit at my house. We did so much in only two days that it probably seems really overwhelming; but it
wasn't it was just super, super fun.
On Saturday night we went back to Anthropologie, this time I didn't get anything though. My cousin got a really cute dress that I wish I could have gotten too but instead we decided to do a clothing swap so I will probably get a chance to wear it anyways. After we went there we went to Marshall's, I only got a pair of leggings but this hat looks kind of cute so it may have been a good idea to check the price. We went to go hibachi after that which was amaazinnggg as usual.
Fooling around.. and yes, I do need glasses.

On Sunday we went to the beach and I finally got a good start on my summer tan. After the beach we went to my uncle's house for a bbq. We went in his pool for awhile and then he took us on the boat to go tubing! When we got home we watched the moving Knowing with Nicholas Cage about the numbers that predict all the world disasters. It was reaallyy good up until the end when they pretty much ruined the movie. How disappointing..
Amazingly funnn..

On Monday we went to go get bagels wearing this:
We got some stares and one guy said "You guys are looking very theatrical today.. what is the occasion?" Hahhahahaa

Then, we went to pretty much the biggest mall I have ever been too so we could meet my aunt because my cousins were already going home. Atleast we got a lot done. I bought a pair of high-waisted blue shorts from Urban Outfitters for $20 that I couldn't get a picture of yet because they were in the wash. Finally I found the perfect other option of shorts rather than cutoffs. I will probably be wearing them in the next few days so I will post them soon.
Yesterday we went into the city to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in Imax. It was sooo amazing, even though I am a few chapters from finishing the book. As you can probably tell, I didn't have much time for reading this weekend.
Well, thanks for reading if you actually did.

Today we went to the mall. I returned a dress to J. Crew and got a store credit which will be good for fall shopping. The dress I wore was my Confirmation dress last year and I really wanted to figure out a way of wearing it again. I also received a few items in the mail that I ordered from Free People. Hopefully I will be able to debut them on the blog soon. Tomorrow I think I may be going shopping with one of my very good friends so I am verryyy excited.

Dress: Vertigo Paris from Century 21
Blazer: Brother's

Walking on Sunshine

Today I went minature golfing with my family. It was super fun, but boiling hot. My summer is slowly becoming more exciting. I have been getting out of the house much more and my cousins may be coming next week. Yaayy !

Please excuse my big band-aid in the pictures, hahaha. I cut my leg on my bike yesterday.

Biking Down to the Beach

Today was a very nice day. I met my good friend this morning and we went for a bike ride and then we went across the street from her house to the beach. I wanted to get a picture there, but just wasn't up for it once I had seen how beautiful it was there. All I wanted to do was lay out in the sun on my towel. I'm really hoping for many more days this summer just like this.

I really like the below picture. It was supposed to get our faces in it but instead I got a cool picture of everything else, hahaaha.

Very simple beach outfit =]
Shirt: Abercrombie
Shorts: Levi's, yet again
Shoes: Old Navy

I would really appreciate it if you guys could look at these sketches I have done and give feedback. Constructive criticism would be wonderful to hear. I am not really sure how good or bad these are but they are the first three I have even done so I am really looking forward to improving.

This one was done when I was taking a private art class that my parents won at some auction. The picture was from a J. Crew catalog but before I started just drawing from my mind I wanted to try copying something already done.

Today my family rode our bikes to a nearby park and had lunch there. It was wonderful; the weather was beautiful outside and the sandwiches were so good. The swings were tons of fun and the water was really nice. I wore a very simple outfit consisting of a top with lace that I find really precious.
Also, thank you to Gladys (Flutist on Teen Vogue) for my new header. Check out her blog here:

Picture Perfect

So far this summer has been very laid back. I have done practically nothing besides going with my younger cousins to a somewhat nearby amusement park for two days. I got back home yesterday, which is part of the reason I haven't posted. It was really fun and the hotel was absolutely beautiful. I may post some pictures from the trip and fourth of july later.
Today I played Monopoly with my brothers and took the pictures of the flowers above. I won the game, hahaa, and I finally figured out how to make the close up pictures on my camera not blurry. Hopefully my summer will get more exciting soon..

Dress (Underneath): Tommy Hilfiger Kids from when I was in third grade hahaha

Blast from the Past

So, this morning when I woke up I felt the sudden urge to go browsing through the back of my mom's closet to see what I might discover. She had already left for a doctor's appointment so I dug in and was SOOO excited with what I found. I found mainly jackets, coats, and blazers because that was the side of the closet that they were on but I also reached down to the floor and was surprised to discover this humongous gold gown that I know could have never possibly fit my mom. Believe me, it is huge!The pieces below are only a few of the many I found, but don't worry I am planning on posting the rest either tonight or tomorrow. I can't wait for the fall and winter when I can finally wear some of these coats, but until then I am planning on wearing whatever I can now! Also, I would love to hear you opinions on them so please post some comments if you have any =]

Jacket- Mom's (Comme CA des Halles)
This jacket is definitely one of my favorites! The color is absolutely amazing and the back is precious. These pictures really don't do it much justice. I am planning on wearing this with leggings in the fall and winter and I may even be able to pull it off as a dress if I wear it with tights because it is pretty long. It may even look cute with a pair of skinny jeans. Wow, I am just so in love with this jacket and I can barely wait to wear it! Too bad it's not colder =[
Coat- Mom's (Thalian)
This coat is plain, but it is still adorable. The detailing is to die for! It is a light coat so it will be perfect to wear in the fall to keep warm and I may even be able to come up with a few outfits in which I can wear it not as a coat that I take off when not outside if you know what I mean.
Blazer- Mom's (Miles & Long Menswear)
This blazer is pretty cool. Except for the fact that it is huge on me, I do like it. It would be perfect for fall but I don't know if I am going to be able to pull it off because it's so big. Maybe I can get it fitted but i don't know if my mom will let me. What do you guys think?

Jacket- Mom's (Luciano Tempesta)/ Shorts- Levi's/ Tee- Old Navy
Okay, just like the pink jacket, I am in love with this red one too. I was so excited about it that I even wore it today with my Levi's and a plain black tee. Everything about it just amazes me and I can not wait to wear this in the future when it's colder out. It has been a little hot for it today, but I don't care I couldn't not wear it ! I think I will probably wearing this little number with jeans and leggings and possibly some skirts if I get some that match. This will definitely not be the last time you see me wearing this!
