TeenVOGUE Sept. 2012

Welcome to the first installment of my Teen Vogue inspiration posts! The magazine inspires me with every issue, so I just want to share my thoughts with you! 

This just in: The old saying "less is more" is no more! For this fall, the fashion world is screaming at us from every glossy magazine page that MORE is actually better! What it boils down to people is "fashion eccentricity". This month, Teen Vogue emphasized that fact that Fall 2012 is not for the light of heart. Page after page of layered heavy knits, seven-piece suits, clunky creeper shoes, pattern play, and ornate Baroque outfits prove my point. Fashion fearlessness is not an easy feat, but it helps that the celebrity world is on board with us. This article said it perfectly: it's time for us to embrace individuality and load up on every fashion trend we love, even if it's in the same outfit. 

I know, I know, it's easy to say that you're not afraid to dress to express yourself, but we all know it takes some guts. Take this picture of me for example:

I was only five years old, so of course I didn't care what people thought of me. So next time you're getting dressed and considering whether or not you look ridiculous, remember this picture and think, "Hey I can't look any weirder than that!" and walk outside with a whole new level of confidence!

One Year.

Happy Blog-o-versary to me! Happy Blog-o-versary to me!.... Okay that's as cheesy as it gets, but hey, I think I deserve it! I really can't believe it's been one whole year since I started this blog! The truth is I'm still learning a lot, so it's not like I can kick back and relax now, because this is just the beginning.

On a more important note, I've finally figured out another way to wear my chambray shirt! I think that I subconsciously believe that if I tuck in, knot up, or wear shirts backwards, people won't notice that I wear them so much. Hmm...there could be some truth to that, because for all you know, this might not be the same shirt I was wearing in the last post...

Anyway, I love walking around Georgetown at night because it's always so full of energy and life. Of course I made the ever-important stop at Georgetown Cupcake, but I'm pretty sure that goes without saying.

Austin Photo Diary

//Heritage chambray shirt//B.P. tee//B.P. leggings//Bensimon shoes//Fossil watch//Kipling backpack//

Just got back from an awesome trip to Austin, Texas with the fam. I mean the WHOLE fam--reunion style. It was so fun to vacation lakeside in such a lavish house, complete with secret passages and everything! I'll admit although it was stunning, who really needs 49 gold plated lions in their house? Well you know what they say, everything's bigger in Texas.

Please enjoy this musical selection to keep you in the southern mood, y'all.


P.S. To all you Texas folk down there, take no offense, I'm still new to country music.
