when you found me I was running wild

Yes, it's been a very long time since I've updated....just like the old days, ehhh? Apologies, I've had no time! And the time I have had has been spent with my wonderful boyfriend :3 But I'm home sick today, so here's one huuuuge post to satisfy. I spent $3.21 on a Naked juice yesterday because it had 760% of my daily Vitamin C dose in it....but I'm even more sick today than yesterday!! Oh well, Tuesday is my always my blog/homework/TV day, so here goes....
The first thing I'd like to say is that I was lucky enough to do an interview with Mariska Deasy for her blog, which you can read right here!! Goodness, isn't she the absolute cutest thing??

Second, I got new boots!! Aren't they lovely? I feel like this outfit is a reversion back to my old style...It must be the autumn. I snagged them from the DSW sale section a few weeks ago. I cannot afford them but I thought I'd splurge.
Third, I also got this lovely new headband from Urban Outfitters the other day. On sale!! It reminded me of Lillian Gish and the lovely pale colour contrasts with my hair nicely. Usually headpieces get lost in my dark hair! When I put it on, my mum saw me and said, "You look positively like Clara Bow" or something along those lines. Aw, isn't that lovely? But she knows that Clara is my favourite and was probably saying it to please me. All the same, I love my mum.

My boyfriend also came over while I was taking photos. Thursday & Sunday are date days for us, so on this day we were going to ride rides at Nickelodeon Universe & then see Easy A! I really liked that movie, Emma Stone is sooo wonderful and super freakin' pretty.
Oh, and since everyone loves him so much & because he's soooo hilarious...my puppy dropped by, too (:

His tongue is magnificent, no?

when you found me I was running wild
This is an older outfit. I took photos & posted it on Lookbook, so I thought it'd only be fair if I posted it here. It's sort of a mashup of my style from over the past year, which I can prove with this:
1. The motorcycle boots, which I wore everyday last spring.
2. The tights are necessary when faking longer legs, so I wear them all the time, especially in colder weather.
3. The bodycon does the same with the legs, and makes me feel really curvy and great. I love deep colours, so the purple is perfect.
4. The red flannel is, of course, my favourite shirt ever, as it's so toasty warm & delicious and all over Minnesotan.
5. And this vest, which is a new peice from the second hand store, is sooo soft and incredibly warm! Plus, I'm really getting into animal print lately...this is a newer touch to my style.
Anyhow, time to start homework though! I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely autumn!! Or I suppose spring, if you're in Australia. (:

you're new boots are awesome, but what I'm really in love with is your headband! I'm getting more and more into headbands again, and this one is the cutest.

ps; you and your boyfriend together are adorable.

Erin said...

You do look quite tall with the tights! Oh, and I adore your hair :)

Lina said...

Love the jacket!

Katie Beth said...

I love love love your new headband! And of course great outfits! You are just too adorable. (:

I completely agree with your statement in that interview about Minnesota and all the Hollister and Aeropostale and everything. I honestly can't think of anyone in my grade who dresses like I do... at all.
When I started dressing "different" everyone was really confused, but now a lot of people compliment me on how I "don't care what people think" and "not afraid to stand out". Which is kind of strange, since I really don't dress crazy, just not a tee shirt, name brand shirt, or whatever and jeans all the time.
If that makes sense.
Looooong comment, sorry. :)

i love your over-the-knee boots!


tess said...

you look awesomely edgy in your motorcycle jacket!

Sorry you're feeling sick

Date night sounds like a lot of fun, I want to see Easy A but its not out in the UK yet ugg

Even though flannel is everywhere in the US now, Minnesotans totally own it. Hello Paul Bunyan!

If you dont mind me asking my dear, where DID you get that jacket?

Allana said...

Very nice! I find myself grabbing for similar things this fall. I am practically living in my plaid flannel, moto boots and black leggings, as well.
