when there's a burning in your heart

i've been obsessed with fashion blogs lately, and have been gathering tons of outfit inspiration from the gazillions i have saved in bloglines. (some of my absolute favorites are kendi everyday, clothed much, and kristine. or polly, among others).

anyways, i've been taking pics of my outfits lately and thought i'd share.



cardi: forever 21, lace top: h&m, tank: old navy, belt: thrifted, pants: h&m, boots: target, necklace: forever 21

this is my casual weekend look:
cardi: target(from the kids' dept. no less!), tanks: bought in japan years ago, jeans: gap, shoes, target, belt: thrifted, necklace: forever 21

i loveloveloveeeee this blouse - i thrifted it for only $1!! score! i'm not even sure what's on it...i thought it was birds at first, but it's starting to look like flowers? i'd also held onto this skirt for a while and have finally started to wear it!
cardi: forever 21, blouse: thrifted, skirt: h&m, tights: ???, boots: target, belt: forever 21

i've had this shirt for ages and am starting to love it again...
cardi: express, shirt: target, pants ("treggings"): h&m, flats: target, belt: thrifted, necklace: forever 21

i love yellow + red + grey:
cardi: forever 21, shirt: kensie girl, pants: h&m, shoes: vintage, belt: vintage, necklace + earrings: forever 21

this was my easter outfit (i wore my easter dress to work!). i was suuuuper tired in the morning because i was recovering from uh, an interesting night so i wanted something that i could throw on quickly and this was that.
cardi: wet seal, dress: old navy (kids dept! don't judge me!), leggings: forever 21, boots: vintage (from austin)

felt like being super girly. ignore the fact that i look preggers in the left photo, the wind was blowing up my top - it was super blowing strong AND freezing.
cardi: express, top: mine..., pants: h&m, flats: target, earrings: charlotte russe

boho casual?
cardi: ann taylor (secondhand from reyanna!), top: thrifted, jeans: target, shoes: thrifted, belt: thrifted, neclace (hard to see): forever 21

most of these photos were snapped in my backyard. they are also doing construction on the house next door, and apparently they took down the fence that separates our house from their house so the contractors have more room to work? or something? (they are basically gutting the entire house and rebuilding). i had no idea about the fact that there was no separation. when i went out to take an outfit photo on saturday, i walk out, set my camera on self-timer, walk out to pose...when all of a sudden, i see a group of chinese contractors sitting there staring at me while on their cigarette break. ugh.

i've also set up my shots with random people passing by, probably thinking "why is that girl taking a photo of herself in front of this random wall?!"

but i've been having fun documenting my outfits, and this helps me experiment and branch out with my style...soooo....i think i will start posting outfits on here from now on.

at least it will (hopefully) help me blog on a regular basis again, right?

So cute! I love seeing what real girls put together too, so much better than a magazine. :)
