A horse with no name


I think for me, outfits like this are pretty "standard." Tee, shorts, cowboy boots, and a big bag. They make me feel really comfortable! And while I like to try to break outside my own sense of normality as much as I can, sometimes I can't deny just feeling comfortable like this!

Top is from Storets, and bag is from Shop Lately.

Here's the song that inspired this post:




The lighting in this one is so different!






Geometric necklace is from RIRE Boutique.



Fabulous spiked friendship bracelet (which I can't stop wearing...I wish it matched with everything I own, ugh) is from Shop Savage!! Triangle ring is from Wholesale Dress, and skinny stack of bracelets is from Angel Court!!

Edge of the World // Beach trip // Thank you for 11,000 followers on LookBook.nu!!


Went to the beach with a bunch of our really good friends a few days ago!! It was a super fun trip and I pretty much lived in this outfit the whole time! (Minus the shoes, as I realized were...pretty hard to walk with in the sand, haha!) 

Cross sweater & stained glass printed leggings are from Romwe!!
Also, here's the song that inspired this look! Could only find it on SoundCloud, but it's awesome so give it a listen! It's called "Garden 2" by Teen Daze.

Silver ring by Vanessa Mooney.







Jenna, Josh, & Chris!! It was so beautifully bright my camera was picking up lens flare IN THE HOUSE!



Ariel & Chris! Love it when the lighting is perfect enough to catch dust in the air! Only wish my camera was a bit better!



The beach was really foggy for awhile! Caught these two kids playing around




This little guy was seriously such an asshole just for the sake of being one. Josh & Francesca were trying to feed all the other seagulls, and this guy would get in their way, feathers all fluffed up, JUST so they couldn't get the food, and then walk away. He...didn't even want it for himself. XD Looks like he broke his leg at one point pretty bad. I wonder if it made the poor little guy jaded?!




Ariel looks so cool here!!




Got the idea for this photo from Josh!




These people looked rad!




The ocean is so beautiful. Seeing the curve of the earth kinda reminds you just how small our earth really is.

Favourite eyeglasses-- A post I have been meaning to make!


Eyeglasses are a sometimes understated,  often necessary adornment that also doubles as a fashion accessory! I've been meaning to make a post on eyeglasses for quite sometime, but easily it always seemed to slip my mind since I don't personally wear glasses myself. Above are my favourites from the brand Persol! Persol eyeglasses are super cute!!





I find I take them for granted as a needed object, but the more I think about it I realize just how lucky I am to have nearly perfect vision--one of the few super healthy things about me. Above are my favourite picks from Ray Ban!!

And on a similar topic, I've always wondered, what is YOUR take on wearing fake glasses if you personally don't have poor vision? Should wearing glasses be left to those with poor vision, or is it ok to wear them as simply an accessory??

Sorry for the lack of posts!!


First of all I wanted to apologize to everyone for my lack of posting for more or less the last two weeks! Josh & I went out of town and while we were there he busted up his ankle/foot pretty bad, so we never got a chance to come back home, or be around my computer with all my blogging files on it/a computer with Photoshop!

We have been taking lots of daily outfit shots though, so there's a lot to come, I just need to find the time to post everything.




Birdy doesn't like Jesus.



Josh's horrible looking foot! Feet are gross but I wanted to show off how nasty it looked. This was right after it happened, but after a few days it sort of looked like someone had stuck a straw in it and inflated it all huge like a foot-shaped balloon. I guess that happens sometimes when you skate though?!



Josh and Colin, haha.



We were initially going to Portland to hang out and see Josh's grandparents, then come back to Eugene, and then go back up for a convention there, but we just ended up staying since Josh wasn't able to drive back to Eugene with his foot like that. After awhile his foot was manageable though so we picked up my friend Kimi at the airport for the convention!



If there ever was a photo to describe how this convention was, Pikachu smoking a cigar is a pretty damn good way to explain it.



While we were in Vancouver at the convention, the Red Lion across the river in Portland burned down!! We had all been hanging out at a Red Lion too, so a lot of our friends totally thought we ate it! Good thing it was the abandoned one across the river that burned down and not the one with thousands of people staying at it!



Mt. Hood always looks so pretty!!


Anyway, I have one last thing to address--I've been getting a lot of requests to publish the winners of past giveaways that have been held on my blog. I used to openly publish the names of the winners, directly copied down from the information they provided me with. While I understand the excitement to find out if you've won or not, I have had several complaints e-mailed to me about publishing the names and/or information of giveaway winners.

Several users who have won in the past mailed me explaining that other individuals had tracked down their e-mail addresses from their corresponding giveaway page and harassed them. This is totally not okay!

Because of this, winners will ONLY be e-mailed directly. If you have won a contest in the past, or win one in the future, you would have/will be contacted.

Sorry for any inconvenience--I simply want my readers to be safe!
