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!

Senior Prank

Even though this legendary event happened almost a month ago, the event in question was of such epic proportions that it does not matter the time or the season with which it is told, just so long as people hear of the night history was made at Lauren's high school.

The night was cold. Students gathered, armed with blankets, streamers, balloons, confetti, candy, and sheer determination. There were two phases to their operation. Phase one involved parking everyone's cars in a giant circle around the student parking lot to cease all parking the next morning.

After the school was unlocked (by one of the administrators, so it was perfectly legal), phase two commenced. The doors to the classrooms flew open simultaneously and students poured into the rooms. They removed every single desk, moving them all into the common area to create a giant desk maze for unsuspecting students and teachers the next day.

The halls were filled with streamers and candy, desks and signs reading "2012, the end is near" and "seniors 2012" and upon the completion of the damage, the seniors returned to their cars to eat smores, watch movies, and sleep (though legend has it some pulled all nighters).

In the morning teacher and student drivers alike turned the corner, expecting to see a nice, empty parking lot, only to find the empty lot barricaded by senior cars. And the madness only continued inside the building. All the community laughed at the sight, though one angry mother stormed in, looked around at the sea of desks blocking her way, and stormed right out the door again.

The year these seniors were juniors, the seniors hadn't done anything, so not one person expected anything, and especially not something so monumental. Yes, it was a day one soon would forget.
