I wasn't planning on taking pictures on this day, but then I saw that the creek had flooded from our recent rainy days. I was like oooooooooh I can wear my galoshes and wade out there it'll be so cool socool! It was pretty cool, but I got a little cocky and went too far out... and had to walk back to the house with water in my shoes.

I had packed this dress away for winter ((neatly thrown on the floor of my closet)) because it's so light and summery, but if you'll notice, I'm bare legged in these shots. SC is throwing us these warm weather curveballs mid December. I wish I could say I'm not used to it, but that's just kindof how winters go around here. I keep seeing all you northerners and westerners in your snowy shots and I'm kinda jealous I won't be getting a white Christmas! And I'm afraid my hair is no longer pink by any stretch of the imagination.

In other news, my Dad's semi-homeless friend and his brother (from when we lived in VA 15 years ago) came and spent the night last night. Pretty weird sitch, but I always liked them, they're nice guys. They brought their dogs, too, much to Kit's disappointment!

I also put a filter on these... just messing around. I don't know what I want my style to be these days.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you all got exactly what you wanted and spent lots of time with your families. I've had a good one so far! Gonna go see The Hobbit today yeauhh. I took these Christmassy photos with my sister after we opened presents in our pretty red and green dresses. They turned out bright but it was really freakin cold, and I guess I didn't notice on the display. We're still cute tho!

I guess I mean freakin cold by SC standards, because it's actually in the 30s. This dress was my Christmas gift from Travis, and the polka dot button up was one of my presents I opened today. I've been wanting some button ups for layering, and I got a few from Old Navy. Pretty psyched. And sleepy at the same time.

Once upon a time my hair was curly. Anyone remember those days? I think I bleached and dyed the waves out of it, which is pretty sad. Maybe they'll come back when I got back to my natural color, which'll happen eventually. The peachy color is looking pretty orangey, too, so I'll have to figure out how to keep it pink. You guys, I have no idea what I'm doing.

I'm really happy with this outfit and these pictures, though! Get this, though. I pulled this Henley out of a pile of clothes my sister was giving away, and she said I gave it to her when she was in the 7th (!!) grade. That's like 7 years ago! I see why I passed it off on her... it doesn't fit my boobs right and it's also super long to accommodate the era's low rise jeans. I forgive it's issues, though, since it works so well with this dress.

My sister made the scarf, and I love it! So cozy.

Travis is in Italy now, and I got called back into work at my summer internship for awhile. Not doing anything designy, just filling out spreadsheets. But hey, I'll do boring work for $10 an hour! (Stressful work, not so much.)

Perfect Red Dress

Ugh, taking these pictures was so lame.
I keep forgetting that it gets dark around 5 these days, and so we were racing to not lose the light (again), and as soon as I set up my tripod I realized I forgot my memory card at home. :p
So Travis took these for me with my iPhone. I get really easily upset when things don't go according to my plan, so I was in a funk all night.

This dress, though!
It was my Christmas present from Travis. We exchanged gifts early since he's going to Italy tomorrow... I'm going to miss him! I picked out what I hoped would be the perfect red dress... and it hit pretty close! My only complaints would be that the waist hits a tad high on me, and that my dream dress would have a slightly poofier skirt. But the color is perfect, I love the pleats, and the material is super comfy. It even has pockets, so. I wish I had a holiday party to go to, just so I could dress it up all fancy! Instead I worked with what I had. Most of my clothes are either at school or at home, so I had a pretty limited array of accessories.

It also doesn't go as well with pastel-peach hair as it would have with brown or red, haha! That's cool though.
