pleatsicle

Thursday, October 11

   Yay for taking pictures in good lighting for the first time in my life! I asked Hunter to take some for me before he went to class, and when I asked him where, he directed me to this spot! Fancy that!
hair clip- F21. earrings- Premier Designs, top- Old Navy, skirt- Ann Taylor Loft, boots- Shoe Carnival
 Now debuting my new skirt from Ann Taylor! I saw it a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with the pleats and the gorgeous color (the color of an orange dreamsicle, resulting in a pleatsicle, if you will). Is orange in for fall? Maybe. I couldn't help but swish it around all day when I walked! The fabric is SO swishy!
Also debuting my new (and actually, first) chambray shirt! I am way behind this trend, I realize. I ordered it online when I got my new colored pants, just to make my order enough for free shipping (this is being economical!). The size/fit was somewhat of a gamble, but I'm pretty pleased with it! I figure polka dots are a fun take on this classic.
Here I am looking thoughtful as I show off my side profile. 
And this pose is inevitable with a swingy skirt!

   How's everyones' week?! I am going crazy, running from homework to rehearsal to work. Thankfully this week is ALMOST over and I'm almost back on top of school after missing like, a week of class. Then I will take a giant breath. And read some blogs.

Highlights of today:
- B on my make-up Physics test (GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!)
- Cranberry Apple tea that I stole from the office (delicious.)
- the pumpkins waiting at home for me (both real and peanut butter...I managed my first fall date this week! Pictures to come!)
- that extra hour before rehearsal starts tonight. Whatever shall I do?
- Bangs that are still rockin', two days after my shower. Huzzah!

Lady friend - so scary to hear about your trip to the hospital! Good to see you are getting better quickly. You are too adorbs in this outfit - orange is my favorite color, and I am obsessed with anything chambray, so this is right up my alley!

Cute look, Priya! That is a great little polka dot chambray number and love the skirt too. They make for a fun fall color combination! I hope you can get all caught up on school soon so you can tackle your whole list of fall date ideas.

I do have to tell you that everytime I see the word 'chambray' I think of you. Thanks for educating me in the ways of fashion! :) You look cute, as always! Congrats on your first chambray shirt, I was wondering when that was going to happen. :)
