It’s Over Again

So Christmas has come and gone again. I am a mixture of relieved, and sad this time of year when the holiday has left us and we have a whole year until it graces us once more.

I had intentions to write a blog post on Christmas Day wishing everyone a happy day, but instead it was spent traveling back home, and then getting home and realizing we had no food in the house and searching all around town trying to find something that was opened. Luckily we found a gas station with a grocery store inside and bought ingredients to make pasta. Yummy Christmas dinner to us.

All that to say, I hope you all had a lovely day hopefully spending time with loved ones. And maybe you stopped to think about Christ on that day who is the reason not just for the season, but for every day.

To Grandmother’s House We Go

These pictures were taken at my Granny’s house. It is one of my favorite places on earth. I went to college only 20 minutes or so away from her so this place became my home away from home. I have missed it terribly the last few months and I’m so thankful my husband and I got to spend time with both of our families this year. We are extremely blessed

And yes, the blonde streak is permanent. A friend of mine did it for me while visiting my home town and I love it. (Thanks Jessica!)

Naughty or Nice

Most of the time, I’m nice. (i.e. trying to take the time to compliment others, rubbing my husbands back for him when he’s sore, calling friends and family just to say hi)

But at times I can be a little naughty. (i.e. refusing to help my husband with things because I’m too lazy, putting myself above others far too often, making mountains out of mole hills and causing others to suffer because of it)

Did you make the nice list this year?

Rainy Day

It was sprinkling on me while taking these pictures, but I was in love with this outfit so I had to take a few pictures of it. This sweater was one of my few Black Friday deals and looking back I wish I would have bought it in every color. It is so comfortable and I think it would look great with some sweater tights also. And I just made my lace up boots more versatile by getting colored laces to switch out. I love it.

Inspired By: Avatar the Last Airbender–Part 2

Back when I wrote my last inspired by post, a noter asked if I could do some sets based on some of the other characters of the show. I am finally getting around to posting just that. So if you ask me for something you will receive it…eventually.

Zuko

Avatar The Last Airbender--Zuko

Zuko is a scorned member of the fire nation with a dark past and one mission in mind. (I won’t give it away to those of you who haven’t watched the show) I wanted to make an outfit with the colors of fire and also black as they are all represented in Zuko’s normal outfit. I thought this heart on fire ring was particularly fitting for his character as well.

Azula

Avatar the Last Airbender--Azula

Azula is one of the more tough characters on the show so I chose an outfit with lots of stud embellished pieces to give off that tough girl vibe. The mustard top is to be worn under the red dress to represent the colors in her ensemble and this lightning necklace is reminiscent of the lightning that she chooses to bend in the series. (Side note: If I ever get a cat I’m naming it Azula–it is the perfect cat name, right?)

  Uncle Iroh

Avatar The Last Airbender--Uncle Iroh

The above outfit may look a little bit girly to be representing a male character, but Uncle Iroh is one of the most laid back characters imaginable and I wanted to make an outfit based on that atheistic. I have personally been a bit afraid of maxi skirts, but the sheer nature of this one may be the perfect balance and not to mention super comfy.

Who is your favorite? What person, or series would you like to see a post over next?

Definitions

I was thinking the other day about how my style has been changing. When I first started this blog I was in a bit more of a ultra girly, sort of preppy stage (see here, and here) But now if I were to define my style I would say it is “thrown together chic”. I have been enjoying putting pieces together that don’t necessarily match or traditionally go together. But I also don’t want to look like my closet just threw up on me, so it it a bit of a balance. The outfit above is a good example of my current fashion fetish.

What is your current style looking like?

Tree House

I had my camera and my tripod all packed up and I was walking down to a location in my neighborhood when I spotted this old abandoned tree house. For some reason it appealed to me. As I took these pictures I wonder what the kids were like who used to play here, what kinds of games did they play. It may become a new location I frequent for other creative shoots.

Also, I decided for days when I don’t feel like curling my hair but don’t want to put it up either, the solution is just to add a few braids in. What do you think?
