Top - Kensie, gift via Sheila
Jacket - Michael Michael Kors, thrifted
Jeans - Levi Strauss, thrifted
Clinic Boots - Jeffery Campbell

Sheila-Week Continues! She gifted me this awesome top with a cool patterned gradient and pattern mix ruffle. I accidentally laid this jacket near the top one day and realized how perfectly the gradients went together. It's been pouring almost all day, so I stuck with jeans and really tall boots to keep my feet dry.

tagged me and here are the rules:
1. Post these rules

So here are 11 random things about me:
- I got married the day after I turned 18, and just celebrated my 4th anniversary with my dear hubsies.
- I am still in college, but I've nearly finished my AS in Psychology. It's not been easy, because school caused a lot of anxiety in my life, but I've slugged along and I'm nearly at the end of this part.
- I was (and still am) a Harry Potter fan. I got the first book when I was 9 or 10 years old and got lost into one of the bigger fandoms since Trekkers and Star Wars fans. However, I'm quickly gaining a new fandom in Sherlock BBC. If you haven't seen this yet- please do!
- I read tons of information every day. I joked on someone's blog that I read "a million words a day", but it's probably even more than that. I even watch television with my Nook in hand.
- I am still working on my "book". I started writing sometime in November. I got about 11K words down in 6 days. Burnt out, I left it for a month and recently edited it. Now I'm backing to writing. I'm trying to decide on where to host it, but possibly fiction press.
- I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
- I still don't have a driver's license. Though I'm actually working on it.. somewhat.
- I'm shy, despite the fact that I talk. A lot.
- Did I mention the Sherlock thing? I did, oh well..
- My favorite materials are wool and leather.
- I write lists obsessively.

Here are my answers to Terri's questions:
1. Paperback or e book reader?
Aaah! Both. I don't care so long as I can read it. Although my e-reader can carry many many books along with me where ever. It was a gift. I wouldn't have bought it myself, but I use it absolutely everyday.

2. Skirts or pants?
Aaah, also both.

3. Coke or Pepsi?
Ohgod Coke. I haven't had a Pepsi since I was 13? Maybe younger. I drink tea or water at places that serve Pepsi. I blame that on my years of living in Georgia.

4. Summer or winter?
Fall. Hah!

5. If you had to learn a foreign language which one would it be?
Latin. I am furious with myself that I gave into peer pressure and spent my Latin classes goofing off instead of learning. While no one "speaks" it, it's an incredible language.

6. What is your comfort food?
All food? I guess traditional Southern food. Anything really. I love food, all kinds. I do have this little Chinese place I love to go when I'm sick. They use really fresh veggies, and the wonton soup is way better than any chicken noodle soup.

7. Which fashion trend would you never wear?
Never say never. Although probably those tennis shoe high heels? I'm not really fond of them. Harem pants. Yeah, I like the idea of them, but tapered pants look awful on my chicken legs.

8. What is your dream job?
I don't know. I'm still sussing that out. I want to do everything. I'd love to be a writer, but like drawing, I don't know if that's more a hobby or what. I want to do something in fashion, or television, or marketing! I just love lots of different things.

9. Which is the next place you would like to travel to?
New York City! I've never been farther north than Lexington, Kentucky. My family never traveled very far. I'd love to go to London. It's a dream to go to the UK and travel around, sight seeing places I've only ever seen in pictures. Not sure you could actually get me on a plane though! I'd also love to go to Canada and go shopping in boutiques and Fluevog stores! *swoon~*

10. What are your wardrobe staples?
My All Saints stuff. I know, that's not staples. But I have a varied wardrobe. My favorite outfits always feel pulled together by some of my more "unique" pieces, which are usually All Saints. Or I could say my shoes. I have lots of great shoes. I suck at buying basics, so I make everything work for me as I can.

11. Who is your most favourite person in the whole world?
I guess the typical answer would be my husband, no?

I tag:

Here are my questions:
1. How do you take your tea? (Coffee?)
2. Describe your winter coat or jacket. (Pick your favorite if you have it)
3. Give me an adjective!
4. Favorite guilty pleasure tv show (or movie).
5. Favorite blog.
6. If you found a $100 bill on the ground, what would you do with it? (assuming it belonged to no one, but the finder - you.)
7. Would rather receive snail mail or an email?
8. Do you like patterns or solid colored clothing?
9. Stripes or Polka Dots?!
10. Have you ever been on a plane? Where were you going?
11. Favorite accessory?


  1. I loved your answers to the questions! I'm a Coke person too, I can't stand Pepsin which annoys most people! I also got married early and it's a choice I'm happy with :)

  2. NYC would be so much fun indeed! It is def on my list of places to go! I can't believe that you were married at 18--that's crazy! (In a good way, I mean, I was a mom at 18 after all) I love the pattern mixing here and the play on colors!

  3. I'm dying of awesomeness over that shirt! It's amazing!!!

    Fun game - may play along if I get some time. And you know what? I'm 30 and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, ha ha!

  4. That jacket is wonderful. Sheila has a great talent at finding the cool stuff!

    I also am a coke (zero) fan. If I'm at a restaurant and I ask for Coke, if they say "is Pepsi ok?" I say "no it's not ok, I'll have water." Bitchy eh?

    1. I'm the exact same way. I'm sure people think I'm awful, but I cannot drink pepsi.

  5. I am a Coke person too. I used to drink diet Shasta Cherry Cola obsessively until they quit making it.
    I adore your outfit for today. The colors and the design on the top are amazing.
    I sure enjoy learning new things about you. You seem like an old soul. I read all the time too. I have always said I would be rich if I had all the money now that I have spent on books throughout my life. But then again, I am richer for having read all of them.

  6. The BBC Sherlock show is definitely on my list. I have too many shows that I want to catch up on.

  7. Yay for Latin, Chinese food and AllSaints (trying to find a theme there, but . . . ). I enjoyed your answers.

    1. International from where I live? I dunno, like I said - I'm very varied!

  8. So love your banner! Wow, some great answers. Some interesting questions too.

  9. I am a Coke person too. I had a bad experience with Pepsi and can't drink it anymore. Love that you answered that your All Saints stuff are your wardrobe staples, because they are all fabulous! You had some great answers and I had a lot of fun learning more about you :) Heather

  10. I take my tea with sugar when no one's looking. Otherwise I pretend to be a tea snob. No time for answering all of them, but I laughed when I read that!

  11. I answered your questions. :)

    Love the top on you! So cute! I wore "our" skirt today.

  12. I got married young too. Being married made those stressfull after-college years much easier because I had my husband with me every step of the way.

    Am I the only one here who doesn't drink soda? I can't swallow the bubbles! That makes me sound like a baby, but it's true.

    I love getting caught up in TV shows and movies. I was (am?) a big Twilight fan, and my newest obsession is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (I'm not kidding).

  13. I didn't know you used to live in Georgia! I live in Atlanta, and yeah...Pepsi is a dirty word down here :)

  14. I can do it too if you are interested. Cause you'd be the only one I think ;0
    I too write lists obsessively.
    Read a ton.
    Can't drive (but I do have a license. long story)

    I know you are younger but I don't think of you like that. I don't know why I put you in my cateorgy then you said something about Harry Potter at 9 and I die a little. ;P I was in my 20's. I hate feeling old. Also when I did the mental math and realized you were younger than my baby cousin I was shocked. You just seem like an older soul. Ok now I sound weird.

    Oh and I am hella shy but talk too much.

    1. I'd love it if you filled it out. I like learning more about my buds.

      Haha, I am younger, but geez I feel old? Does that help? I can't really connect with people "my age" as much because I feel like they haven't lived.

  15. oh and I failed latin. It is the only thing in my life I ever failed. I failed so bad my teacher said not to even show up for the final. I was mortified. I was a straight A student and on scholarship.

    1. My grades weren't much better. I think I would have failed if not for my teacher "helping" me out. Although my latin was in high school.I feel soo bad about screwing up that class.


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
