college bound

pants/shoes: target // cardigan: friend // shirt: thrifted // bow tie (hair bow): sister

Well it's official: I'm a college girl! Yesterday was my first day of classes. I decided to wear my new fun red pants and walk around in heels (but thank goodness these are the most comfortable shoes ever). This outfit was definitely inspired by one of my many pinterest finds. I really loved the contrasting blue colors and really think it compliments the red pants perfectly.

As for my classes, they all seem really easy. In fact, I'm going to try to add another class for today!

Also, if you want to wear bow ties but don't own any/don't want to make any, what I always do is use a safety pin (and maybe a couple of bobby pins) to attach a hair bow to my shirt. It's a quick and easy way to do something totally new with your hair accessories!

While roaming around the campus to find a tree branch to hold my jewelry, I found this perfect trail to take outfit photos. It's not that I mind taking pictures in front of other people, it just seems a little weird and conceited to take pictures of yourself. I don't know, maybe one of these days I'll be brave enough to venture out in the open with a tripod and a remote.

More ombre nails! I'm really loving the ombre trend, and thankfully I was able to jump on the bandwagon before something new came along. In the past I had always been so oblivious to trends going on (I'm looking at you, junior high), that once I actually bought whatever was in style, it was out of style. Over the years I've learned that it doesn't really matter what's in style or not, as long as I'm confident in whatever I'm wearing, then I'm wearing the right thing.

Hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday!

goodbye Alaska, hello Oregon

day 236

Hello everyone! I am blogging to you live from Newberg, Oregon! My parents and I left Alaska at 12:55am and have been going nonstop ever since. Today has felt like the longest day ever, but one of the most amazing ones too. Right now I'm in my very own dorm room with my roommate Annette. There are girls unpacking from the 11pm Fred Meyers run and everyone is getting incredibly excited--at least I am. It's been so fun meeting new people, and I can say I've done a pretty okay job with it so far.

For those of you who are like me, you just have to be confident and know that everyone is wanting to make friends right now. No one will think you're awkward or weird because everyone is too worried about making a good first impression, ya know? Matt has helped me a lot--he always tells me to be confident and to not worry about what other people think; to just go out there and, as George Fox's motto says, "Be Known."

I have a bit more organizing to do. I ended up stuffing things in (neat) piles in the various drawers, but I want to do a more thorough cleaning once I have a spare moment. Those may be few and far between, however, as tomorrow's schedule is just as busy as today's. Oh and guess what, I have my first job interview tomorrow! It's with the costume department with the theater, so of course that would be the perfect job for me. Let's just hope I can find the place easily. Wish me luck!

Hope you guys have an awesome day.
