1/15 | Paper[bag] or Plastic?


 I present to you...nummer eins! I took these pictures 2 days ago at a nearby Votech high school. It's nice when it's deserted over the weekends when there aren't summer classes going on. I decided to keep it simple with some basics and statement shoes/jewelry. Speaking of shoes, I know a few of you mentioned that I didn't include shoes in my 15 items! To be honest I actually completely forgot about including shoes (I never was much of a shoe person until recently) so I'll just make a promise here that I'll only be remixing 3 different pairs of shoes, including these wedges. If you catch me trying to sneak in an extra pair of shoes, feel free to call me out.

I'm supposed to make a beach trip today but the weather report is saying rain and thunderstorms all day. I think we're going to venture to the shore anyway and hope that the weather gods decide to pour sunshine on us instead. It rained a bit yesterday as well and I was supposed to take my friend paddle boating (don't laugh - I know it's lame but I love it and haven't been in forever). I dragged him along anyway but they closed down paddle boating due to the rain (or lack of! It only rained in the morning). I usually love the rain, don't get me wrong, but it's a bummer when it ruins plans. Oh well, let it rain! I'll have fun anyway. :)


You guys can probably tell that all my full length outfit shots are a little out of focus (except for the first one). I was silly and after the first few takes I moved a little too far from where I planned on standing. When looking over my photos on my little camera screen, it was hard to tell; however, it was very obvious once they were uploaded onto the computer.

  11. You didn't include accessories to your 15 for 15, right? Because that necklace really spices up that whole outfit! It's awesome.

  14. Those shorts and necklace are amazing! I absolutely love them. I almost bought a pair of shorts just like that from Forever 21, but I decided to buy something else instead. WHY? Haha. I love the entire look, and I know what you mean about pictures looking totally fine of the camera. They still look amazing, though!

    I'm doing 30 for 30 and I didn't include shoes in mine either. I see them more as accessories - plus I just wanted more clothes to pick from ;-)
