you couldn't lose me if you tried


jeans: Levi's, gift from my mom -- tank: Target, stolen from my mom <3 -- jacket: vintage, $17 -- hat: gift from Alex -- scarf: thrifted, $1 -- shoes: MIA via Nordstrom Rack, $40

I spent a long time today figuring how to look cool and casual with some semblance of fall colors. It's been unseasonably warm here. Works for me, I guess, but I just want to wear my cozy clothes already!


Living on the edge.

The pictures are from before, but I finally got my hair cut today, thank goodness! My usual stylist was booked solid so I just went to a random salon... The lady did an OK job, but I should just wait next time. Oh well! Hair grows, and mine grows really fast.

I'm done with class for the week, which is a bit of a relief. Still have to write a paper for next Thursday and a research proposal/response paper thing for tomorrow though. That's what weekends are for?

I've been feeling progressively sicker all day. No fever, but I've got the sore throat, fatigue, and exhaustion part. I also lost my wallet. Goooo me.

Time for a cozy night with 30 Rock on Netflix, I guess!

Oh, by the way, I've been using song lyrics as my post titles for about a month now. I've decided to note what song it is to share my musical taste a bit!

Today's title comes from "Saltwater" by Beach House, one of my favorite bands.

And, don't forget--tomorrow is the first-ever Photo Friday!

I note a strange sort of pattern here--your mom gives you a gift, exactly what you ask for, and you thank her by stealing her tank. [Marge Simpson voice]: Hmmmmm. Seriously though, you look great, quite autumnal. Hope you aren't getting a cold after all!

you look like the cutest little paperboy with the shoes and the hat, or am I just overthinking this? Anyway, the look is adorable and retro without being all HEY I'M RETRO, I love that. Also, you remind me of Chloe Sevigny in kids. I love Chloe Sevigny (l)

I love your neck scarf and you look so cute in the hat! I also wanted to say I think your hair looks adorable, I just came back over to the Short Haired Girls side of the world, and I had forgotten how much sassier I feel with it short! Thanks for being a fellow short-haired fashion inspiration!

Such a sweet outfit! I love your cropped jean jacket and your shoes. :D

I don't think I ever replied to your post about children's lit. You have the best taste ever!! Phantom Tollbooth is SUCH a great book, and I am obsessed with Roald Dahl, his children & adult fiction. There's actually a brand new "authorized" biography out about him & I'm reading it now. (: And I am still just as obsessed with Harry Potter as I was when I was eleven.... not sure if that's a good thing. haha I've never heard of Cissy Lavender but I'm gonna find it!
