Wednesdays Are for…

Wednesdays are for wearing something extra dark and powerful. They’re for working at Hip Wa Zee, eating El Burrito and watching American Horror Story. Wednesday’s are a personal victory, an ode to the middle of the week, an ode to balance right before the weekend. One of my favorite things about this semester is how I’ve come to appreciate hump days. Granted, I only have classes two days a week, but regardless I feel like I never slow down. Although my Wednesdays are spent working, I’ve managed to find some sweetness in them. During the month of October, and the most hectic month of the year, my friend Ivory and I decided to have “Witch Wednesday”, in which, you guessed it, we dressed in our darkest clothes. If you remember my witch post, you’ll know that every day is witch-day for me.. but it is fun to have a day designated to wearing my favorite pieces. wwWitch Wednesday soon coupled itself with the return of American Horror Story and so began my love affair for this very special day of the week. Here’s the thing; life is crazy and hard and hectic, and during all of this we forget how good it can be. Here’s a trick; don’t wait for life to throw something wonderful at you, instead, make something to look forward to for yourself. For me, this means spending the day  wearing an outfit that makes me feel like a Death Queen, working with one of my closest friends at work and then ending the day by watching my favorite tv show.  American Horror Story: Freak Show is amazing and watching it with Ivory and my sister makes it that much better.ww 2ww 3www4Today, I paired my favorite tulip shorts with a harness bra, some knee socks and my favorite “Witch” bag.

Sunday Style: Soft Stripes

Happy Sunday one and all! It’s been a great week and a nice relaxing long weekend and I have  been blessed with some great conversation and company this past week. I can’t even deny that I love being back at school, it’s been truly wonderful to be with my friends and be productive once more. I’ve gotten my four weekly yoga classes in, I’ve drank lots of coffee and I’ve done a bit of shopping, what more could I ask for?

I got this jacket for $30 from $130 and these Deena and Ozzy boots for $30 as well. I really don’t think I see myself taking either of these pieces off ever..

Anyway, I have two weeks (as of today) left of being a teenager. I think I’m going to try to do something new everyday until my birthday to really make these teenage years important.
