Easiest Outfit Ever




This past week has been pretty crazy for me. It's the last week of my term, my grandma is visiting and I'm also trying to get ready to go to California for Robert's graduation in two weeks. So this post isn't going to be very type heavy. This is the fastest written post in the history of my blog. HA.

I love the heavier fabric of this dress and wore it very simply. Then decided I needed some sort of bright color--so I grabbed one of my thrifted scarves.




This by the way, is a wall of one of the apartment buildings on campus. The window I'm creeping up on is actually someone's window. Glad no one saw me. It might have been awkward.





I love urban decay. And photography of it. I'm sure some of the textures I got photos of after the shoot will come in handy with design work at some point. I love having my own stash of textures and things to work off of.

  1. Ack, love your polka dot scarf! Major scarf envy! I've been trying to thrift more scarves like this but every single one I come across seems to be dark green. A girl really only needs one dark green scarf but now I have like 3...
    Cute little dress too. :)

  2. I have gotten into the habit of doing quick posts. I usually spend a lot of time taking my pictures and get to the computer screen worn about only to write a paragraph. I love your scarf, yellow is a great color.

  5. I love photographing stuff that falls apart. I have hundreds of pictures featuring peeling paint, but rust is my favourite!

    Like the belt with the stripes of the dress! And the dots of the scarf! :)

  7. LOVELY! I love the pop of yellow from the scarf and the blue and gray combo. The location for the shoot's pretty too. :) The world's indeed very beautiful... even run-down apartment walls hold some kind of unique charm, don't they?

    I hope everything falls into place for you in the busy weeks to come! :)

  8. I can't believe Oregon still has tights-worthy weather. I'm actually wishing it would be slightly cooler so I can wear my tights again. I feel so exposed!

  33. I always type 90000 miles an minute. So, I apologize if I sometimes type like I'm illiterate haha. So yea... my blog posts usually come out in like 9 seconds. The most time consuming part is adding the pictures. I try not to be too wordy because I don't really have that much time because I work 9 million hours a day. Exactly that number. 9 million. Anyway.. I loveee that scarf. It's so cute and yellow and blue are adorable together. I haven't worn a scarf in SO long and you make me want to wear mine again. But it's SO hot that adding any extra layers might make my brain melt.

  34. Haha, that would've been awkward :D
    I love your outfit, you're so cute!
