Stares and stripes

*Bloglovin’ * Facebook * Twitter

I know what you’re thinking when you look at this first photo. It’s not true. I tripped. I fell down the stairs. It was my fault – Uh, I better stop before I start to offend someone. Actually, I went white water rafting over the weekend and water is stronger than it looks.

Rapids + fair skin = Lots of questions and stares about my boyfriend bruises.

I’ll share some camping style photos next week. It’s really not that different than how I normally dress, give or take some flannel.


*Shorts: c/o Francesca’s Collections. *Shirt: Urban Outfitters. *Vest: Thrifted via Goodwill (altered). *Boots: Thrifted via Crossroads.

Hey, look a DIY. Kind of. This vest was originally a jean jacket. I got all crafty and ripped the arms off to make it a vest. That was about a year ago and I finally got around to wearing it.



I look unreasonably sad in these photos. That’s just my face though. I swear that I am a happy person!

How cute are these shorts? I am loving patterned bottoms lately and these shorts have a nautical feeling that’s perfect for summer. They’ve also got that pajama trend going on for them too. I might live in this outfit for the next couple of months.

And hey, I literally just realized I mix prints here! Like literally, as I was typing this post. I’m a little slow sometimes. First time print mixer right here y’all!


Oh hi, Ugly Mug Photography.

. Can I just tell you how much he puts up with when taking all my pictures? It is not a fun job. But he get’s the displeasure of being my personal bitch photographer. I’m just a tad picky, and stubborn, and resistant to try new things. Just being honest, he’s kind of, sort of, really awesome.



This is me dressing inappropriately. Scandalous, I know.



Can you tell how exhausted I was from the weekend in this picture? Utterly. So much so, I had to sit down. See below. True story.

    my bf and his dad are going to take me white water rafting but they proceeded to tell me all these crazy stories of course and i was like oh great people fall out and float down the rapids or get stuck of what not sounds fun! haha but still i am excited to go


    • Don’t be scared, it’s so much fun! As long as you follow the guide’s directions, you will stay in the raft. And if you don’t have a guide, then the rapids aren’t at a level that should overturn your raft.

  14. Great summer outfit! I love your shorts & vest.
    I’ve been eying a similar denim vest from Levi’s… & I think I’m finally going to buy it.

    Sometimes, when I read your blog…I get sad that we don’t live in the same city. But then I realize that I would never know you with out the internet… and it kind of bridges that gap. But really, I feel as if we have so much in common. The sarcasm for one… Also the fact that I ALWAYS look angry but in actuality I am a perfect mix of Quinn and Daria (from the 90s series… Daria) So.. basically a happy and well adjusted person. Anyway…. thanks for the inspiration, always love savoring your blog!
