Slow Dancing in a Burning Room

Hello all!

Happy Saturday! Its been a fun week, spring break and all. I've been trying to get back to blogging on a regular basis, so here goes my final quarter of junior year resolution: Blog every other day at least, with at least one personal outfit post a week.

Lets hope I can do it!  So while I'm avoiding doing some lovely AP Biology notes, why don't I post about my day... yesterday. Today was uneventful, so I'll go back in time a little.

I went to yoga in the morning with my mom, so I ended up showering at yoga (it's becoming a habit recently). Then I realized that I didn't have rehearsal for the fist friday in a very long time, so I texted my friends and we got some nummy pie at baker's square and hung out, it was a pretty fun night (me, being a normal teenager for once? schocking!)!

Anyways, this is what I wore for most of the day, but not the evening as it got pretty chilly, so I resorted to yoga pants and a T-shirt, not my most original look if i do say so...

Forever 21 Sweater
Forever 21 Dress
Tights from...?
Boots stolen from my mom
Necklaces were a christmas present

My hair also was an adventure yesterday, where i finally gave up and decided to pull it into a classic flip bun-thing.

Apologies, Love, and Gratitude

Hi there, everyone!! Our apologies for leaving you hanging for so long. Nora and I have been ridiculously busy as of late. Nora is out on the East Coast visiting colleges!! I'm sure she will give a full report when she returns. However, as I am stuck here in Minnesota over spring break, I've found some interesting things to do. I've spent a lot of time with friends as well as frequented my yoga studio and ballet. Yesterday I went shopping! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture worth showing for this trip, seeing as I was tired and had big circles under my eyes from this whole daylight savings thing...

I do, however, have pictures of what I'm wearing today, including several new items :)
Shirt, jacket and necklaces from forever 21 
Jeans from Nordstroms
shoes from target
bag from t.j. maxx

I'm in love with this jacket. its just enough military with just enough hipster to be perfect for me, because I can't do too much structure in a jacket. I'm a dancer, so I love to be able to move and be comfortable in my clothes. The beads are my new favorite thing, i got them to wear with my dress for the school dance and I find that I have been putting them in many of my recent outfits!

The shoes. Lemme just talk about how far $15 can get you. They are beyond comfortable and so cute! I found them in the back of a clearance pile at Target in oh say, September, and it was love. I'm so happy spring is here and I can wear them without tights!! (Obviously, the snow is still melting, but its getting there, ok?)

Finally, the jeans. Now, I'm not really a jeans person. I really prefer leggings or skirts to a pair of tight jeans, but these ones are actually so comfortable, minus the fact that they fit my thighs but not my hips. Wait, what hips? Yeah, thats what I'm talking about. Sometimes being tiny and dangerous has its drawbacks.

So anyways, I tried to put a little green in my outfit for St. Patty's Day, and I think I succeeded without being obnoxious. 

Anywhoo, our apologies for being out of touch recently, we're getting back to our blogging kick as soon as spring break is over!! We love you all!

xoxo, Alli

Winter Dance!

So sorry I haven't blogged in about a week or so, it's just been really chaotic in my life with the quarter ending and I got this horrible cold that is still with me.
Anyways, enough about me (ha ha ha.) The last weekend in February was my school's Winter dance. The week leading up to the dance was our winter week, and the theme this year was board games. Each day had a dress up day theme, and my favorite day was definitely "Guess Who". I of course dressed up as my old history teacher, Mr. Sandell, who has the best fashion for a guy I've seen in a while. He's always dressing in tweeds, corduroy, button-down shirts, and my favorite days are when he wears his all-stars. But anyways, I dressed up like him, Alli dressed up like our french teacher, and our friend Grace dressed up like our chemistry teacher.
Here we are:

I'm doing the quintessential Mr. Sandell smile: stand on tip-toes and lean back, so great!
It was real fun because then Alli and I sat with the infamous boys club for lunch. The boys club is made up of the six high school teachers, and they all go into a spare room and have lunch together. They are like "Fight Club" because the first rule of the boys club is that you don't talk about the boys club. Basically, it was a really big deal Alli and I ate lunch with them.

Now here's some pictures from the dance:

My date Maxfield and I.

My friend Molly and I.

On me:

Marichi Mani heels

There you are!

Highschool Dance

So, as I'm sure you understand, high school dances can be a bit.. ummm. Awkward.

Lets just say that this past weekend was a little bit of that for me, but I got over it. The more important thing about the dance Nora and I attended this weekend was what we wore. I'm going to let her explain to you her dress (which I absolutely ADORED. She looked so beautiful), but I have to show you  mine.
Vintage Dress
Forever 21 Neclaces
BCBG shoes

So, if you havent been able to tell from this blog already, I am in love with vintage clothing. This dress was actually a hand me down from my neighbor, and she bought it at a vintage store. I saw the feathers and just about dieddd I loved it so much. (Sure the feathers aren't as intense as say, Alexander Wang's Fall 2011 rtw, but they look AWESOME)

I have to go study for an AP US History test... Wish me luck...
