And We’ll Never Be Royals

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve finally adjusted to being back in school. My schedule is all over the place but I’m hanging in there. Also, I’m so done trying to figure out the weather. It’s been surprisingly hot out this week but I think it’s finally starting to cool down and stay that way.

Dress: Delia’s

Earrings: Vintage

This is one of my favorite dress for a million reasons. It’s in my favorite color, mint green, it’s got lace, the fit is really flattering on me, and I got it on sale! I still get plenty of lovely compliments whenever I wear it out. The earrings used to belong to my Mom.

Tights: Anthropologie

Shoes: Aldo

These ombre tights add a little bit of fun when combined with dresses and skirts. They only work with ankle boots or flats, anything a little higher defeats the purpose. These tights are also a constant reminder of how much I miss my discount. But I think I can finally say I’ve put the retail life behind me.

Watch: Fossil

Bag: Aldo

Leather goods from birthday presents past. I used to be nervous about mixing browns and blacks together but I think this works well together. This is definitely one of my favorite school bags. It perfectly fits everything I need and it’s adjustable too.

I’ve finally been able to visit all of my favorite local cafes this week. I had a study date with my friend Amber at Spot on Elmwood. I grabbed a pizza bagel, because they’re basically giant bagel bites. If you don’t enjoy bagel bites, I’m not sure if I can trust you. Amber bought me a belated birthday cupcake, how lovely! I picked out a pumpkin spice one.

My friend Samantha and I went over to Cafe Aroma because I had to do a people watching assignment for my acting class. Taking notes on people always makes me feel like such a creeper but it’s something I do on occasion while I’m out writing in public anyways. While being creeptastic,  I sipped on an iced vanilla coffee and of course got another cupcake, this one was vanilla.

Went on a bro-mantic date with Amber the following day and wound up at Cafe Aroma again. That’s the thing I love about that place, kills two birds with one stone. Grab coffee in the day time and then beers or wine at night. Autumn seasonal beers are the best in my opinion. This was a tasty little wheat pumpkin ale.

We ate at Towne in Allen afterwards. A bacon cheeseburger with fries for like $5, that barely exists anymore.

Save The Princess

018

Frolicked around Delaware Park last Thursday before class. Someone running over the bridge saw us taking pictures and screamed “you look like a princess”.

I’m glad the world is finally starting to accept that I am indeed a princess.

Cardigan – Delia’s

Lace camisole – Forever 21

Skirt – Target

Tights – Anthropologie

Shoes – Jeffrey Campbell

One of my pointless trips to Target ended up being a total success. Sure I didn’t need a lavender maxi skirt, a sock bun, or fuchsia barbie pink lipstick but now I can’t live without any of them. Campus is windy (as always) and my new skirt was dramatically flowing behind me all day. High-low maxi skirts = capes for your legs. Also, why did it take me this long to use a sock bun? I don’t think I do it correctly every time I use it but my hair usually turns out pretty nice.

Casually Casual

This will be my last post before my 10 day Vegas trip! Yes I’m going on vacation while I’m on vacation from school. Vacation-ception!

009

Went on a casual date with the boyfriend last weekend after a long month of us being sick and on the verge of death.

Shirt: Delia’s

008

Boots: Aldo

Christmas present from Flo this year! I didn’t need boots like this but I’m pretty glad I have them.

010

Watch: Fossil

I bought this after my birthday will all of the gift cards I received. I needed one for work because I hate not knowing what time it is. I wish still had the box it came it, they have the cutest tin boxes. This watch literally goes with everything.

011

Wallet: Michael Kors

One of handful of presents my boyfriend got me for Christmas. It hold plenty and my iphone could even fit in there if I didn’t have a crazy ridiculous case. and it’s in one of my top 3 favorite colors – hot pink. What I like most about this is that it doesn’t have that obnoxious MK print all over it. Seriously every time I see that MK print I read it as “mmkay” like Mr. Mackey from South Park.

012

We went to Mai Lan Restaurant for some pho. I couldn’t wait for the pho so we got egg rolls. But egg rolls are always a good idea.

014

I got the pho tai, rice noodle soup with rare beef aka the first item on any pho menu ever. I will always love pho because what other meal can you pay like $5 for and get a big bowl of awesome deliciousness that isn’t sketchy.

030

The next day I got a pre-vaycay haircut by my usual hair stylist, Crystal at Xquisite Designs. Switched it up a bit and showed her a picture of Beyonce’s bangs because Beyonce is fabulous. But let’s be serious, I show her different celebrities every so often to make me feel like I’m doing something different with my hair. Bangs are my secret weapon…

040

My mother told me I looked like Where’s Waldo in pastels that day.

037

Shirt: H&M

I own too many striped shirts. Every time I come home I find one that I left behind.

038

039

Jeans: Free People

Boots: Aldo

Got a great deal on both of these! I got lucky and got those pants under $20 and I think I those boots were on sale for $15. My thrifty shopping skills keep getting better with time.

041

Hat: Forever 21

I thought I lost this floppy knitted hat for good until I realized that my mother borrowed it and never gave it back. Looks like I’ll be taking it back and never letting anyone borrow it ever again.

050

The boyfriend and I went on a random middle of the week date recently.

049

Dress: Urban Outfitters

Sweater: Forever 21

051

Tights: Anthropologie

Boots: Aldo

I’m not sure if this picture does a good job of showing it, but they’re ombre tights. They go from navy to grey. They’re great winter tights, they’re thick and look great with boots. This is also one of the few things I can afford from Anthrpologie. My employee discount just makes everything less expensive but still out of my lame broke college kid price range. Someday I’ll move into an Anthropologie, yes you read that right.

052

We went to Limp Lizard in Liverpool for some bro food. This place is literally less than 5 mins from my house and I’ve never been until that day. My boyfriend who lives across the lake in Camillus has been here more times than I have. Anyways, I ordered a dozen hot wings which were great. Except for one thing, no matter what I did I could not get the bleu cheese to stick to them! I’ve never ran into such a crazy problem before in my life. It was an outrage, then I remembered I still had a dozen perfectly good wings in front of me. I get over things pretty quickly sometimes.

058

Yesterday I went out with my boyfriend and his family to the brand new P.F. Chang’s for a pre-birthday dinner kinda thing. I somehow convinced everyone to order my favorite appetizer there, chicken lettuce wraps. My only complaint is that they give you four leaves of lettuce and expect that to feed an entire table of people. I have a small appetite 47% of the time and that’s not even enough for me.

059

My boyfriend’s mother ordered the bottle of wine. Ignore the suggestive name, because that’s what I did all night. It was a blend of merlot, zinfandel, and cabernet.

060

I ordered the crab fried rice. Aside from crab it had shitaki mushrooms, asparagus, red peppers, and I think some sriracha. Apparently this is one of their newest items on the menu so I gave it a shot. It was pretty good but a little spicier than I thought it’d be. Pretty sure whatever’s left of it was eaten by my family. *sigh*

061

And it’s not a true chain restaurant experience without some sort of birthday freebie! The boyfriend and I split that piece of tiramisu. Other than it tasting a little too frozen it was still pretty good.
