Valentine Hearts and Foggy Weather

This morning was amazing, because 1. I got a barista job after months of trying, and 2. It was just so beautiful and cloudy in Reno today, which is my favorite weather ever.  After I went to my job interview, I drove around town, celebrating with coffee, and the weather was perfect, temperate, and a little foggy.  I love foggy weather in Reno, because it gets a little cold, makes the colors of the mountains pop, and the temp feels like NoCal.

Normally, I love staying up late at night and sleeping later in the morning, but waking up early today made me see Reno in a different way.  I normally only experience the town around the busy hours of 10 a.m.-6 p.m., but today it was serene and much less stressful to drive in.  I listened to my San Fran CDs (Little Joy and Modern Vampires of the City) and drink way too much coffee (to fit the mood obviously!).  It felt so amazing to not feel anxious and actually enjoy driving for once (which is probably something I should work on anyways, but driving is so stressful!)

Talking to a tree.  No really.  That’s what I was doing in this pic.

Fulfilling my dream of being the “heart eyes” emoji.

Today, I wore one of my favorite dresses that I got in London, which just so happens to be festive for upcoming Valentine’s Day!  This dress makes me feel so cute, and I also got to prove that red heads definitely can wear red.  (Not that I necessarily ever believed we couldn’t wear red.  Take that society).  But still, it felt like an accomplishment nonetheless.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your love or friends or family or dog or by yourself or not at all.

Hello friends, and welcome to 2015!

As I’m sure you’re aware, it is now 2 AM and I am slightly delirious from sleep deprivation/staying up too late on New Years.

Kinda the same thing???  Pretty much.  If something weird pops out of my brain and somehow ends up written on this page, please just know how tired I am.

Anyways, now that it’s the New Year, I’ve decided that I will occasionally be posting some of my favorite outfits that I wear on my blog (new year new blog??).  I love clothes so so much, and have recently been getting more into fashion.  I do not claim that I know anything about fashion, but I truly believe that everybody should wear what they think makes them feel good.  Any outfit that I post is posted because I like how it makes me feel.

Simple as that.

I even began my shift in fashion blogging by cutting all my hair off!  About 8 inches (big guess-timate there).  It’s a huge hot mess in these pics, but I think it’s cute and sassy and fits my personality much better than my last ‘do!

Shifting back to the clothes, most of my stuff comes from Forever 21, H&M, Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, Top Shop, etc.  However, I love thrifting so a lot of my stuff is from local thrift stores.  I’ll try my hardest to note where my clothing is from.

I spent my New Years with my little brother, who is visiting me from Las Vegas.  I drank champagne out of my coffee mug with a bike painted on the front, my brother drank a bottled Coke, we ate quesadillas, and watched The Office.  At midnight we clinked our glasses and let Michael Scott ring in the New Year.

It was very reminiscent of my brother and I.

My brother and I have been thrifting, going to very pretty snowy parks, and hanging out at fun coffee shops and restaurants.  It’s everything that I love to do, but now I get to bring my brother along to show him around Reno.  (Shoutout to him for taking my fashion pics!)  Tomorrow’s (later today’s) agenda is bowling at the local bowling alley (exciting for my brother because all Vegas bowling alleys are in casinos), picture taking, lunch at a local cafe, and dinner with our aunt and cousins.

So far 2015 has been pretty good.

Thanks for reading my crazy 2 AM post on New Years Day.

Let this be a good year my friends.

XO Sara
