Studio Times: Spring 2013 Finals Edition

It's finals week once more. Which is an ideal time to procrastinate and kill time in the studio. I spent about two hours stretching in the studio trying to make myself focus on studying for a computer science test before giving up and whipping out the camera. Hence these photos. I went for a lighter, ethereal look with my editing this time. Let me know what you think!

One lovely thing about this week is that I'll be having several photoshoots with dance major friends in our down time. I look forward to sharing those photos!

Benches and Bare Feet

Remember how I was raving about Tuesday's weather? Well Thursday's was even better! 80 degrees, sunny, beautiful! Unfortunately, the past two days have been significantly colder, but I was glad to play in the sun while it lasted! I even got away with a crop top and no shoes! Ah I'm getting so excited for summer...

Outfit Details
Flowered shorts - Forever21
Crop top - thrifted
Loafers - Macy's

I'm actually pretty surprised I left my dorm in a crop top. If you know me, you know I'm fairly self-conscious. I haven't felt comfortable in a bikini since sixth grade when I was 60lbs. But I'm slowly getting over body hate...sloooowly. But three cheers for loving yourself! Everyone is beautiful as they are!

Princess in Training

Sometimes life needs a little magic, a little trip into the realm of fairytales. Sometimes all the stars align and the weather, location, and perfect dress help to make that magic happen!

Outfit Details
Dress - Street Scene Vintage
Platforms - Target
Flower clip - from dance class years ago

I bought this beautiful vintage dress at Street Scene over Spring Break and have been a little nervous to wear it. It's not the most practical or expected article of clothing for traipsing around campus. On Tuesday, though, Jocelyn and I had the final performance of a scene from The Illusion for Acting. It's a period piece, so I thought having a long flowing dress on might help the posture and character, hence the debut of this dress!

The weather has been so lovely of late. A little on the warm side but on Tuesday we had a light drizzle of rain to cool down in. It felt so perfect to dance around in the rain in this dress! Truly magical!

Anyway, it's no secret that I've always wanted to be a fairy princess, so I'm glad I got to live out that dream for a few minutes in these pictures!

Jump for Joy, Spring Has Arrived!

Just two days ago I was lamenting the cold weather, but what do you know? Spring weather has arrived!
It was warm enough today to actually enjoy being outside, even without a coat! My friends and I took full advantage with a trip to Spencer's coffee shop downtown. Spring weather, smoothies, and friends...the recipe for a perfect day!

Outfit Details:
Striped shirt - Modcloth
Black shorts - Forever21
Knee highs - Uniqlo
Combat boots - DOTS
Beaded collar necklace - H&M
Ruffled trench coat - Target 

A sensible arabesque by the fountain. Why not, right?

Jumping for joy, because IT'S SPRING!

Today was a wonderful day for reasons beyond the weather and company too. Good grades on tests, classes finishing early, free time. Ahh, just what I needed before the insanity of the weekend. Hope you all had as pleasant a Thursday as I did!

Wild Rose

Spring weather continues to elude Kentucky. I'm dreaming of short pastel dresses but stuck in maroon and black, my winter uniform. Today has been a step in the right direction with snowfall finally stopping! Perhaps someday I will be able to bust out the floral minidresses, but until then...

Outfit Details:
Black corduroy pants - Ann Taylor
Rose sweater - Goodwill
Copper flats - Goodwill
Black beaded collar necklace - H&M

Obviously I've been MIA from the blog for awhile. Apologies! Life is very busy...just about three more weeks until I can sleep again...

A Much Needed Break

Sorry for the lack of posts of late. I've been busy, and not in a way I necessarily enjoy. Lots of homework, late nights, and sickness. I'll elaborate later, but it is finally Spring Break! 
I'm spending a low-key week in Lexington. I may be bored towards the end, but oh man I could use some time to relax. Hopefully that will also mean I have time to post on this blog!

So far today I....

...shopped at Street Scene 

...ran errands with the family

...eaten my weight in chocolate

...tried to watch The Following

...discovered I'm not a fan of The Following

...climbed a tree and took silly photos.

For instance, these photos. My dad came running outside and presented me with the pictured bayonet and cane because he thought I could use a prop!

Outfit Details
Black tee - Target
Tribal print pants - Goodwill
Copper flats - Goodwill
Shell bracelet
Sunglasses - Street Scene Vintage
