I was featured on College Fashionista last week. I got to know the photographer, Melissa Martinez (photographer who took Ashley’s street style pictures) and was impressed with how easy she was to work with.
Here is a snippet of the feature:
The entire the photoshoot was a lot of fun. My attire was for the slightly breezy day, which is a rarity in the Syracuse Springtime. Below are some of my favorite photos from the shoot:
I’ve started playing around with mixing prints and patterns, so this outfit was a fun way for me integrate both into a grad school-appropriate outfit.
I was in training last week for my instructional assistant job this semester. It was laid back attire but, of course, I dressed up a little bit.
As I was thinking about my back-to-school outfits, I realized that I'm probably going to be dressing a little like a teacher during my time as a grad student. Let's face it, must of my closet are remnants from my classroom days. Without even meaning to, I may look like a teacher 88.2% of the time because of my blazer+dress or cardigan+skirt combos. I like it though. It's not my first time at the rodeo so I want people to be able to differentiate me from the undergrads. My wardrobe should help. I'm excited about this first full semester of grad school. I can't wait to learn and grow.
I talked about my Navy LABWORK Peplum Jacket from Target in an earlier post. Check out how it fits and how versatile it is.
At our house, we have a scrapbook resolution tradition that we do on New Years Eve. We make a poster of what we want for the upcoming year. I love this tradition. Here’s my poster. See if you can decipher some of my desires for 2013. I’ll tell you a few of them.
This year, I will be turning 24 and I know that God is going to show out in a mighty way. I have a few things that I desire to accomplish before the year is over. Note I didn’t mention resolutions. For some reason, my mind, body, and soul go out of their way to spite my resolutions so I’m going to call them desires instead.
1. Get into an Out-of-State Graduate program
2. Get more organized
3. Establish my style which I call “Professoriate”
– Professoriate style is quirky, eclectic, and includes tortoise-shell glasses, blazers, cardigans, and loafers.
4. Come to terms with my vertical disinclination (and stop pretending to be 5’5)
5. Get my smile & joy back
7. Learn to do more things with my hands (sew w/ a machine, build, design…)
8. Sky dive for my 24th birthday (I won’t be stopped this year!)
9. Be on stage more (The Voice?)
10. MS150?? (BIGGEST CHALLENGE)
On a side note, for the sake of my readers and instagram followers I hope I can find an alternative to those sophomoric mirror picture. I hope someone loves me enough to start taking them for me ;)
This is my first thrift adventure since the pre-Clothes Swap fast. Lol, I haven’t thrifted for a month. Let me tell you, it was rough. But I went to my thrifting spot and I got:
- 1 checkered blazer
- 1 dress
- 1 button-down sleeveless top
- 1 floral skirt (with a pocket)
- 1 pair of striped pants
- 1 pair of vintage pearl drop earrings (not pictured)
My favorite things that I bought were the blazer and the dress. I’m definitely taking them to New York with me!
