bored in Bus Cas

Monday, July 30

    Happy Monday, dear blogging friends! As far as life goes, I am pretty happily content after a fun but relaxing weekend. Why is it that I physically cannot keep my eyes open after like 10:30 anymore? Talk about embarrasing! I don't want to be old!
   As far as fashion goes, to be honest, I am getting really bored of the Bus Cas lifestyle and I think I'm at my wit's end with skirts for a while. I'm READY for fall: cooler weather, leaves, teacups, sweaters, tights, and pants! Remember those?
top-Aeropostale, skirt- J.Crew, sandals- Old Navy
   As long as we're sharing embarrasing stories: I must confess I do NOT own a chambray shirt and this is my roommate's. I am prepared for you to dis-own me as a fashion blogger. Of course, I want one, but I think I've just stressed myself out about finding one. And oh, I've found one, it's just that it costs $80 and is from J.Crew and is probably not happening. Maybe on my last paycheck. 
   This is Hunter's first time ever taking pictures for me and I must say, he did a great job! I don't know why he was so nervous, because he's the real model in this relationship. I never actually walk around with my hand like this, but he suggested it, and I think it looks so "casually demonstrating my pocket while looking semi-sultry and like an inquisitive fashion blogger contemplating how to remix this outfit". Now that I found a photographer that actually likes me, I'm gonna milk it!
   Found these shoes at Old Navy like 3 years ago and they were a completely random purchase. They have more than compensated for their $7 on clearance price tag. 
   I like how I thought to myself, "What in the world can I even say this morning on my blog? I have nothing to say." But then I remembered that I could talk about literally anything in the world. Notice I didn't say "talk intelligently" or "about something you might actually care about". 
   Oh, were you looking for another cupcake picture? None today, although I do have one packed in my lunch! I was about to have to re-name this blog "Perfectly Cupcakes." Actually that is adorbs. Permission granted for someone to use that.
   
   I've got just about 3 weeks left of my internship, and would love it if you had some dressing for work/Bus Cas tips so I can shake up my wardrobe without dying of boredom/buying all new stuff! Hunter and I actually did a little shopping yesterday but all I got was a birthday present for a very lucky sister. Otherwise, I'm proud of myself for not caving in even though I was lusting over EVERYthing. 
   That's probably enough for now. I've got just a few things on my to-do list for today: work, my roommate comes back (!), look for a job in my new neighborhood, get a library card, work for a few at Donut Den. Should be a decent day. Thanks for reading everyone!!

Priya said...

Thank you Shelby and YAY that makes my day!!

I don't even care that it's not yours, I love love love this shirt! I have a confession: I don't own a chambray shirt either. I hope the blogging gods don't punish us. I can't deal with that kind of shame. This post made me crack up, by the way. Probably because you're the only one who truly gets me about rambling like no other in a blog post just because you can. We have so much power. Hope you find your way out of your boredom rut, I definitely know the feeling. Bright colors always help in my experience. Also...please send me cupcakes :)

Priya said...

I will actually, for real, send you cupcakes. If I bake them, and then mail them, are they still good in the few days it takes to get to CA? I'm so glad I'm not the only blogger without a chambray shirt! Thanks for reading, no actually reading, I am amazed. Love bright colors, i'll go for that. Thanks Elana, you're the best!

Jess said...

So cute! I love your hair!

Nataly said...

Uh, Priya, you're the awesomest! maybe one day you could do a guest post on mine! Let me know if youre interested!

First of all, I'M SO READY FOR FALL/WINTER/COATS/TIGHTS/ETC!!!
This outfit is really cute ;-) and you need a chambray shirt girl, cos they look good on ya!
And HOW CUTE that your boyfriend took your pictures!!! I'm *single* but i'd be really shy/nervous to have my boyfriend take my pictures!! haha but I don't even do outfit posts b/c i'm again, shy/nervous. SORRY FOR THE RAMBLING.

For internships/dressing not casually: I'M IN THE SAME RUT for my internship and job. There's no wearing shorts/short skirts/sleeveless so I'm pretty bored and tired with my outfits!!! COLORS, i'd suggest haha

I totally just checked this on a whim (I've learned the hard way that people don't get notifications to replies on comments). Oh my goodness, if you sent me cupcakes I would be in love with you! Wait, I just got a brilliant idea. Care packages, let's do it. If you sent me cupcakes, I would totally bake you cookies! If you're down (of course you are) email me to figure this out, elanakat@gmail.com!

Priya said...

YES.

Priya said...

Thank you Jess! It's cray pretty much all the time, but I'm glad you said that!

Priya said...

Nataly, you're great! I would love to swap some posts! It was weird having him take my pictures, that's why I've waited so long! Ha it's gonna get better though. Sometime you should just ease yourself into an outfit post, from what I can see from your blog, your style looks awesome and I'd love to see it! Thanks for the suggestions, working on some more colors. But mostly I just want FALL!

Priya said...

I wil literally borrow things from anyone, all the better if they don't even notice! Thanks for coming by Amy!
