Geek Chic

Hello lovelies!
Whew! I didn't think I was going to be able to get this post up today.
You know those pants that you put on and feel like you can take on the world? Well, these are those pants. They're high waisted - Not as high-waisted as they look in the photos, I happened to be wearing a black tank that blended right in! - and just make me feel like a million bucks. I wish I had a pair to wear everyday!

Outfit Details:
 'GEEK' Shirt: Rue21
Black Skinnies: PacSun
Military Jacket: Hollister
Leopar Flats: TJ Maxx (?)
Necklace: Claire's (?)
What piece in your closet makes you feel fabulous?

Maxi - Waxi

Hello Lovelies,

Why the weird title, you ask? Well, my dog's name is Max and sometimes I call him "Maxie Waxie"; so every time I wear a maxi skirt, I think of that!
This skirt was one of my summer staples - I wore it A LOT! I was a little sad when fall rolled around, thinking I wouldn't be able to wear it. Then I had a lightbulb-over-my-head moment: of course I could still wear it! Who says you can't wear an ombre orange maxi in the fall? Needless to say, it's transitioned into my fall wardrobe nicely.

Outfit Details:
Striped Shirt: Sears
Ombre Maxi Skirt: Rue21
Boots: American Eagle (?)
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
When this post goes up, I'll be off touring a couple colleges in Upstate New York. Where has the time gone? Wasn't I just in third grade, like, yesterday?! I may be slightly freaking out! Plus, I have no idea what I want to major in. I've found myself wishing that life worked like the world in Divergent. {Have you read that series? I would highly recommend it - if you love the Hunger Games you'll probably love Divergent! Plus, the movie version comes out in the spring!}

Any advice for my college search? I'd love to hear from you!

Lovin' Lately #2

Hi Lovelies!
Remember that one time I tried to start the series, 'Lovin' Lately?' No? Oh, well I'm starting it again!
So, just as a refresher, in these posts {which I'll do once a month} you'll get a peak at what I've been. . .well. . .Lovin' Lately! A monthly favorites post, if you will.
Now that September is old news - which, can I just say, is nuts! - it's time for the second installation of Lovin' Lately. This month, I've been loving all sorts of things, so, without further ado, here they are!

FREEMAN's Facial Polishing Mask - Charcoal and Black Sugar

I'm not sure if I'm alone in this, but exfoliating is one of my favorite parts of my skincare routine. I love getting off all the gunk, grime, and dead skin {too graphic?} and revealing baby-soft skin! I also love face masks! So, when I saw this little beauty at RiteAid, I couldn't resist. Let me just say, it's a little tricky to apply, but once you get the hang of it, it works like a charm!

Maybelline Color Sensations Vivid in Vibrant Mandarin

I am totally a lipstick gal; it's just the perfect accessory no matter what you're wearing, and this month I've really been loving this fabulous orangey-red color! It's super pigmented and -wait for it - it doesn't dry out your lips! I wore it in my Fallin' In Love post, and - would you believe it - my dad actually picked it out at the store. Serious brownie points in the Dad Department.

'You Can't Sit With Us.' Tank.
Hello, my name is Abigail and I am a Pin-a-holic. I get all sorts of inspiration from Pinterest. Fashion ideas, DIY projects, recipes, quotes, you name it! I think only two words need to be said about this pin: Mean. Girls. Also, this shirt is fabulous and I will probably be ordering it off of Etsy very soon.
{P.S. Follow me on Pinterest here!}


Okay, so technically, I found this fabulous mash-up in October, but it's too good not to share. Basically, it's the music to Mumford & Sons' Little Lion Man with the singing from Miley Cyrus's Wrecking Ball. Let's just say the music video is a little bit more. . .covered up than the original for Wrecking Ball.

What have you been loving this past month?

Hello lovelies!

Another Monday, another post. It's pretty rainy and dreary today, and I have five million and one things to get done. Not a good mix.  And no, I am definitely not procrastinating by writing this blog post. Definitely not! Well. . .there's a slight  chance that I could be. But seriously, how can I stay on task when there's a post to be written and a Bloglovin' feed just a click away?

Outfit Details:
Cross Scarf: Rue21
Grey Top: Forever21
Striped Jeans: Aeropostale
Boots: Forever21
Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe
I wore this outfit a few weeks ago, and I loved it so much that I couldn't help sharing it! Plus, I was definitely having a good hair day, and if you have crazy curly hair, you know how few and far between those can be! My dad happened to snap this photo with his cell phone {he did capture his work boots, too, but they've been since cropped out} when I visited him at his job site for lunch. It was such a beautiful day, and sitting by a lake made it even better!

Well, I suppose I should get back to my to-do list. What do you do when you just can't concentrate? I could use a tip or two!
