friend fashion: suz



I have the cutest roommate ever. We were paired together freshman year, can you believe that? And we're still living together four years later. I really lucked out. We're kind of an epic roommate success story, no big deal. Susan has a really fun, quirky sense of style. She's always pairing bright colors together and accessorizing with as many squirrel related items as possible (I bought her squirrel socks & a squirrel tee for her birthday). Isn't she the best?



These are from our Senior Banquet which was 'cocktail' attire. It was a good time- overly sentimental speeches, free wine (and wine glass!), and a little DP (dance party) action.

S. is wearing:
Dress (worn as top), Old Navy
Skirt, Loft
Heels, Nine West
Necklaces, trip to Japan

A. is wearing:
Dress, BB Dakota
Necklace, vintage
Heels, Nine West

color crush: lemon

collageWayne Thiebaud

Inspired by artist Wayne Thiebaud today. I know, technically the suit doesn't fall under the lemon yellow heading but this is the painting that I originally wanted to post (wasn't high res enough). I love how the blue and yellow play off of each other.

checks & dots





Keeping it simple today. Weather's a little gloomy, let's go sun! Vitamin D is the stuff. I felt like I was half asleep all day. Things are about to get crazy, I officially have less than one month of school left. Where did the four years go? I sure can't tell you.

Are you getting tired of these boots yet? They are on their last leg, so I've been trying to get as much wear out of them as possible before they kick the bucket. Does anyone know whether resoling is cheaper than just buying a new pair?

Hope your week is off to a good start!

As you can see, these are some of my favorite shoes. I love how they toughen up even the most girly look and can make something dressy more casual. These chartreuse socks are also my absolute favorites, I have worn those to death too- I just discovered yesterday that there's a hole in the big toe of one of them. So disheartening. And also apparently crossing my right ankle over my left is my go to pose? What a self awareness exercise Friday remixes are!

Hope you enjoyed looking back with me as much as I did.

k & k, episode two






The lovely Kenzie and her sweet sister, Kelsi, came to visit me in Winston-Salem over the weekend! If you aren't familiar with Kenzie's blog, you should go check it out ASAP. You'll love it. Last time we met up, they showed me around Charlotte. So it was real fun (that one's for you, Kenz & Kelsi) to share the twin city with them- we had a great time running around downtown, Mellow Mushroom-ing, going to Goodwill and the mall, taking photos in Reynolda Gardens (looking far less creepy than I would have by myself) & and ending with a wild frozen yogurt chase. A jam packed day of good times! Hope to see you girls again, hopefully sooner rather than later.

pastel palette





Woke up with 10 minutes to get ready for church this morning, so I just threw something on in a half-asleep state- a dress, tights, shoes, GO! Above is what I ended up wearing the rest of the day. Spent it hanging out with my daddy before he left to go back home, playing a game of photos-for-blog hide & try NOT to be sought, then studying at Starbucks for my Free Will test tomorrow. What happened to Sunday being the day of rest?

Hope you all had a lovely holiday(and hopefully long weekend, too)!
