Dress: Pacsun, Belt: Abercrombie
A week or so ago, my friend Madison took these pictures of me for my graduation announcements. I'm a little behind, but now I'm working on designing them and getting them printed. I can't believe I graduate so soon! IB tests are starting so it's almost feeling more real. But that probably won't all kick in until about midnight on my graduation night! I've definitely enjoyed high school, but I'm getting more and more excited about summer, especially with all the testing craziness right now. I have so many art projects and photography shoots I want to try that I can't want to get that opportunity after all my tests are done! I can't wait to share them all with you.

Shirt: music festival / Leggings: Target / Shoes: Urban Outfitters / Bag: Old Navy / Cardigan: Urban Outfitters (brother's)
Okay, so it's been forever since I posted an outfit I've actually worn. But this was a perfect comfy, gray Monday outfit. It was sort of uncharacteristically simple and monochromatic, actually. But none of the scarves or necklaces I tried out with this outfit felt right so I just left it as is. Honestly, I was totally on the fence about this oversized cardigan at first, but I really loved how comfy it all was and how well I felt it fit together. The other day, my brother told me that even when I go away to college, I'll still get his old clothes he grows out of (I can't believe he's three years younger) and he'll just mail them to me. While this cardigan isn't mine yet, I'm definitely looking forward to the day that it is.

Have you ever seen the website The Polyvore Collection? It's basically a blog made up of various Polyvore outfits and is much easier to browse than the actual Polyvore website. It's mostly full of dark and minimalist outfits which isn't exactly my style, but I love looking through it and just seeing outfits that are different from what I would put together. Even though most of the outfits aren't my style or even my ideal style, there are a lot that I get inspiration from. For example, all of these outfits I've included in this post. They all get me really excited for original prints and outfits made up of neutrals, which would all be perfect for the upcoming summer.

Hi, everyone! At the moment, I'm trying to save up for what will hopefully be a trip in the summer so I haven't been buying anything at all! I'm also trying to build up a wardrobe for college and making sure I have any essentials, so I've been trying to save as much money as I can. I've still been peeking at a few websites here and there, though, like Forever 21. Though I'm not buying any of these pieces, I could help but imagine pairing those shoes and that dress together for a spring/summer outfit. I recently discovered nail rings, too, and I love them, so I thought they would be fun to include. While I love all these pieces, I'm completely torn about this outfit. I really love the idea, but I feel like I'd have to see it in person to decide if they all really work together. I say yes, my friend Madison says no, so I'm wondering what you guys think! I can see either way and even though I won't ever actually put this outfit together, I can't help but wonder how it'd look in person. Do you guys think it would look any good?

I'm most definitely a ring person. I love the look of wearing multiple rings and especially the idea of having rings that you wear every day. In practice though, I never wear rings because it's almost impossible to find one that's not made of metal. But I still love looking at them, especially on Pinterest. I included all of these in a style inspiration post because I think these rings are especially original, interesting, and gorgeous. I wish I could own them all!
P.S. Have you ever heard the phrase "ring by spring?" I've only heard it as a cliche people use when talking about Baylor University since a lot of students get engaged while they're in school there. Have you heard it anywhere else? I love the rhyme!

Ever since my brother's friend's mom got me an evil eye bracelet a few years ago, I've always loved them. The design is typically so simplistic, especially like the ring above, but it has such a cool idea behind it. Basically, the evil eye is worn to keep away evil, not bring evil to you, which is what the name makes it sound like. I really like that idea of a sort of good luck charm like this that you can wear every day, like numbers 1, 3, and 5.

You guys, it's been so long since I posted! I'm so sorry! It's been a crazy last month or so, but I have a new post! Since the summer, I've been keeping a file on my computer called "Learn From Her" in addition to various style boards on Pinterest. I've been saving a lot of pictures of outfits like these that I love on these girls, but personally, I mostly see them as foundations. With all of these outfits, I'm just dying to add a patterned, colored top under Chloe Moretz' jacket and colored scarf to everyone else's. I love the idea of basic simple outfits, but in reality, they're just foundations for me or else they don't feel like my style. Even so, I'm so inspired to play around with basic outfits like these and add my own touches.
