To My Cousins

Watch in HD!

To my lovely cousin Brandon–and my soon-to-be cousin-in-law–I love you both so much and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to take your photos! I can’t wait for the wedding. You two are beautiful people, inside and out.

Happy Fall Equinox

I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but today is the start of fall–and well, I have to celebrate in my most fall outfit. The “Stanford” sweater is actually vintage! It belonged to my mom in the 80’s. The lace0side leggings (I don’t get to wear these nearly enough, btw) are from Papaya. The cute collared hearts piece was supposed to be a dress–but it totally shrank. Yes, again with my ELF Cheerful Cherry lipstick. It really is my fall favorite.

Even though the Fall Equinox is today, I don’t feel like fall has really set in. It’s definitely starting to creep around the corner, but I’m still holding out for 60 and 70 degree temps. Enough of this heat already! (But don’t come for a while, Winter.)

But, regardless of if we like it, the seasons are changing. Whether you pronounce it “Ee-quinox” or “Eh-quinox,” let’s remember to come together at this Season of Thankfulness–and let’s just all get along, okay?!

Second Sick Day and Pumpkin Spice

I refused to go to school today. But this is the last day I’m letting myself slack off. I’m going to go to my class tomorrow and get back into the habit of doing quality work. Although I hate being sick, it’s really reminded me how frustrating it is to be unproductive.


Added some nutmeg and whipped cream, although my whipped cream is out–or I would’ve made it prettier.

Canyon Trip

After classes, I had a moment of spontaneity and decided to drive through Provo Canyon all the way out to the other side. It was beautiful! I was hoping to see more fall colors, but what I did see was beautiful and the breeze alone was heavenly.

It was awesome to experience the beauty of summer ending and fall starting. Some of the places in that canyon look like they come straight out of a fairytale.

Check out the gallery below for more shots of my 2.5 hour drive!

Season of Change?

Leg warmers and jacket from Buckle, shoes from Forever 21 and dress is vintage.

With the leaves, temperature and seasons changing, I realized a lot can happen in just a short period of time. I’ve found the only way to keep going is to keep perspective.

On my flight into Utah, I decided that I wanted to cut my hair and dye out the blonde panels that I’ve had for the past couple summers as a sort of physical manifestation of starting fresh.

Everyone always tells me how beautiful my long hair is and how much of a shame it would be to cut it, even though I’ve been wanting to do it for a really long time.

I kept putting it off for various reasons, but I decided that change was already in the air, so why not be a little cliche and change my hair, too? It may have been a control thing.

I cut off about 5 inches and dyed the blonde to a dark purple. You can kind of see it in the first set, but I didn’t want it to be too obvious.

Needless to say, I love it to death and instead of missing my longer hair, I’ll give it a nostalgic wave goodbye and never look back!

Fall Favorites pt. I

I’m a big online shopper. Asos.com is my absolute favorite online store right now. They are originally a UK only store, but now they are available online for free shipping to the US!! The style of clothes they have is 100% different than anything you could buy at Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe. Which is a great thing. Especially since their website is way easier to navigate.

If I had an extra $500 laying around, I’d spend it on the following outfits. Since I don’t have that much, or any money, laying around, I’m going to dream and maybe buy one piece at a time for the rest of my life.

Outfit #1: Knit dress (Fairisle by Asos) with tights (by Asos) and boots (Liebrecht by Aldo) is always a classic. The tights make for a wonderful twist! The total for the outfit is around $145.

Outfit #2: A more casual must have look of feminine boots (Rosalie by Volatile) to go with the feminine bow on the shirt from Asos and a great pair of skinnies, also from Asos! Outfit total is around $155.

Fall Outfit #2
2 more outfits that complete the $500 in part two! Enjoy these and I’ll see ya then!

Hello, Fall!

By no means am I completely saying goodbye to summer, but I have been thinking a lot about what look I’m going to go with for fall. I can just imagine the hayrides and corn mazes and hot chocolate! I wanted to go a little bit more dramatic and opted for a cherry lip and dark purple eye. It’s just a step lighter than smokey, which I love! I also put my hair in a side pony tail and just barely curled the ends with my straightener.

Is it me or does it seem like you have to work a lot harder in the colder seasons to look good? In summer,  you can just look as natural as can be because the sun does all the work.
