7/15 | Brick by Brick


So, I barely put anything thought into this outfit and just threw everything on. For some reason it ended up being one of my favorites so far in this challenge! I guess sometimes my instinct helps me stay true to my personal style. This outfit is ridiculously comfortable and casual and that's exactly how I like to be. 24/7. And so maybe it also has to do with this brick wall. I don't know why, but it seems so much more epic than all those other brick walls in the world. I borrowed it from my middle school.

My middle school is starting to become one of my favorite places to take pictures! Well...only after 3pm when it's deserted and there aren't any summer programs going on or people working.

So I have to admit, I'm pretty damn exhausted right now. On Friday I went to sleep at 4:30 AM (so technically it's Saturday) after a night of way too much fun, then woke up at 7:30 AM in order to head home, take a shower, then drive an hour to attend a Picnic for my club. Then Saturday night I went to bed at 1:30AM (making it Sunday) and then woke up at 5:30 AM in order to watch hot air balloons take off! Now I'm sitting here and trying to stay awake because I'm stubborn and refuse to take a nap. My bed is looking mighty comfortable right now but I've got a lot to do! Just watch...I'll be passed out on my bed within an hour.

    Did you take any photos of the hot air balloons? Watching them sounds like fun (riding sounds funner though...)

    I think your look works quite well for being thrown together, and did I mention how much I love those wedges??
