A Leaping Day

Happy Leap Year Day.  A day that only comes around once every four years, just like the Olympics.  Do something awesome, like jumping off a 40ft cliff for example.

Quit Talking, Start Doing

I've been getting way into sweaters lately.  But not these kinds of sweaters; big, old-man sweaters.  After seeing these pictures on my blog circuit (notice the awesome print mixing), I think I need to start looking for small sweaters.

A Rugged Zeal For Life

If I were a model, this is the kind of shoots I would want to be involved in: wearing impeccably feminine clothing while doing something incredibly daredevil.  Even if I weren't a model I would want to do this anyway.

You're Invited

If a bunch of British hipsters threw a tea party, I imagine they'd wear clothes like these.

Thieves Who Never Sleep

Showcasing a collection on a piece of clothing?  Sounds like a pretty cool idea to me.

White Shadows

Superhero Warriors, living in the jungle, masters of primitive weapons, knowing the ins and outs of every place in the world, extraordinaires of camouflage, and crafters of wild clothing.  This shoot is a great premises for a movie.

Epic Wipeout

I played in my sorority's intramural basketball game tonight and even though we lost by an embarrassingly large margin, I made an epic dive save as the ball was flying out of the court, resulting in my crashing into the wall and landing on a giant gym fan.  In my opinion, that's a successful basketball season for me!  I've never really been into sportswear; it's hard to mix and match with other genres of clothing, but this track jacket looks way awesome worn with normal clothes.  The colors are pretty sweet too.

Tonight, we are young.
So we set the world on fire.
We can glow brighter than the sun.

The Other Side of Today

I wish the weather would be good enough that I could wear something like this.

But at this point I'd be ok with it only being nice enough to wear something like this.

Basically, it just needs to be warmer outside.  I'm sick of wearing leggings under everything.

Oh Yea, Alright, Are You Gonna Be in my Dreams, Tonight?

For a little Valentine's Day cheer, here are some more inspiring takes on the holiday's usual red uniform, for the more casual, let's-get-ice-cream-and-take-a-walk date all the way up to the dinner with candles, oh-my-gosh-is-he-going-to-propose date.

Snow Pockets

We had the first real dose of winter weather today in the fair city of Springfield, but much to everyones dismay, there wasn't enough snow on the ground to cancel classes.  In my protest of winter in general, I don't own any snow-appropriate winter apparel, but if I did, I would want a coat that looked like this.

Day of Sun

My first attempt at the shorts over leggings look.  Shorts equal summer, summer equals happiness.  I should have tried this earlier.

What Does Cool Mean?

Wouldn't it be awesome if your group of friends looked like this whenever you got together?  The umbrellas, the dresses, the attitude... it's just all so cool.

Never Gonna Grow Up All the Way

I saw this picture on my fashion blog circuit a few days ago and was very intrigued by the look.  I feel like this is what I would look like if I were blond and living on a beach.  I mean, she's got the woven bracelet-covered wrists, colorful shorts, the big sweater to contrast the shorts, and, the newest addition to my look, a really awesome hairwrap.  That's right, I'm bringing back the third grade, symbol-that-you-just-went-on-vacation hair accessory.  So far, I like it even better than the hair feathers.

Crazy Not to Follow, Follow Where You Lead

Today, the 5th of February, is my Mom's birthday.  If I had lots of money, I would fund an epic birthday trip back to the land where you are greeted by a hearty "Bonjourno!", where the people dress and move so much more intriguingly, where it is acceptable to eat gelato every afternoon of every day, and where every direction you turn there is something so awesome and cool you have to take a picture.  This land of greatness is known as Europe, specifically Taormina, Itlay, and the Grecian Islands.   She is the best woman I know, and she would deserve it.  Love you Mom.

Travel Chaser

It's days like these 65 degree sunny stunners that make me wish I was traveling the world.  While I'm saving my money to make this dream come true (wayyyy down the line at this point), I'll settle for wearing worldly clothes like these.
