dress (on clearance!) || cardigan: American Eagle || rings
i recently bought this dress, and i'm just so in love with it. it's really quite perfect for fall, and i have so many cardigans that can match it. i guess that's just how it is with fall colors, because i totally got them covered in my wardrobe...
what's a staple piece in your wardrobe?

oh, goodness. autumn. i love you.
autumn is by far my favorite fashion season (and honestly, just season in general). jeans, boots, warm sweaters... everything is cuter in autumn. (also, Starbucks warm drinks again, gahh!) i mean, i'm just saying i love autumn.
which season is your favorite fashion-wise?

wow. okay. i have some things to say.

Life LifeLife
wow. lots of time has passed and i haven't shared much of my life in there.
well, i finally got my photography site up and running (pretty stoked about that even if it's only temporary), i've learned that i really do like fashion, so i'm wanting to incorporate more of that into this little space (i'll be posting a fashion post from a couple months ago very soon), i'm going to Europe next summer (!!!), and i'm also principal of my orchestra again (well, it's kinda exciting to be the first principal violist in this group, because this is the particular groups' first year...!), i've begun tweeting... (again...), oh, and i'm working on revamping my design site (and even created an Etsy for it), i've been getting some great photography opportunities (the Lord is so good to me!), i've passed the hump (i hope) of bad and scary school days (and it's going really well!), my instagram is something i am now very proud of (maybe this isn't so good... but it makes me happy), and most importantly, although it may be very hard, God is showing me that He is in control (and also that He hasn't forgotten about me; no, not at all).

moonlight.

sometimes getting away from everything involves
 being outside in the quiet at night with your 
camera at the end of the block. 
sometimes those times 
are the best times.

overwhelmed is an understatement.

Myself
you know that feeling where you're constantly trying to get just a little bit ahead, and it's going well, and then all of a sudden you hit the deep end, and then you're a little behind, so you try to catch up, and you don't know what's going on, but you can't do it, and then you just fall more behind, and things just keep getting worse, and things get harder, and you second guess everything, you wonder why your life took this turn when you weren't expecting it, and you're wondering how you're going to get through?

yeah, that one.

// honestly i'm not sure why i chose this photo. i guess it's because whenever i think happy, i always think this photo. maybe because i look happy, or because that time was such a happy time for me. i'm not even really sure why i like it. my mind is telling me that i hate it, but my heart feels like a familiar place when i see it. just one of those unresolved images, i suppose. //
