Wheat Print Dress, French Fries, and Home Libraries

Happy happy Friday!

It’s almost 3 and I’m sure half of you can’t wait to get out of work and half of you just finished your last class of the day and are on your way to your unpaid internship.

Either way, I hope that you’re having a wonderful Friday afternoon.  Luckily, I was able to get all of my classes Monday-Thursday this semester and I don’t work Friday so I’ve just been having the most relaxing day.  Yay for Fridays off!  When you work and go to school six days a week, having Fridays off is absolutely the most wonderful thing in the world.

I actually spent the day in bed, eating French fries, watching Sex in the City, and reading random books.  Tonight I’m driving to Tahoe to have dinner with my friend.  *angels randomly begin singing*

I really think that it’s important to relax every once in a while doing exactly what you want to do.  I really love watching TV and eating and relaxing every once in a while.  If you really love going out and dancing, do that.  If you really love spending some free time sewing or bowling or hiking, you do you.  Of course, I love sewing and hiking and playing piano and singing and writing songs and baking, etc. etc.  But sometimes I just want to lay in bed and watch reruns of The Office.  So I did that.  Take a mental health break every once in a while and lay in bed for a day.  Your brain will love you.

I also taught myself how to use my tripod, which my brother showed me how to use like, 8 times, but I either wasn’t listening or can’t figure out how to do things correctly.  Either way, it happened and now we have pictures.

This is one of my favorite dresses ever.  You can expect to see it in the future.  I have about ten black dresses (it’s getting to be a problem).  After buying a black dress at American Apparel over the summer, I saw this one about two weeks later.  I almost didn’t buy it.  But I had to.

And I wear both dresses all the time.

So it was totally worth it.

This outfit is actually a combination of some of my favorite articles of clothing.  1. The dress  2. The shoes  3. Tights in general, and 4. the cardigan.  I’ll actually wear this outfit in the early fall or late spring with another sweater that’s more flowy and less warm.  But since it’s been chilly around Reno, I decided that this cardigan would be my best option.

Cardigans can substitute for winter jackets in 40 degree weather, right?

Probably.

I will wear this outfit whenever I don’t know what else to wear.  I have about five or six “go-to” outfits, and this is definitely one of them.  I have a cute black pair of heeled ankle boots that look really cute with the dress if I need to dress up a little more.  Simple dress + heeled ankle boots + jacket/cardigan + smoky eye = really great outfit.

One of my favorite parts is the simplicity of the print.  It looks like wheat to me.  I don’t know if it really is, but I’ve decided they’re little wheat stalks.

Do you have favorite books that you reread all the time?  (Mine is Harry Potter!)

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
