"I turned myself to face me"

Howdy cool cats! 
Overall my Thanksgiving break was really great, but WAY TOO short! I don't know if it was just me, but I had so much stuff and so many people I wanted to see, and it felt like I didn't even accomplish anything at all. If you haven't already noticed, I have a new blog layout and I got a hair cut (which was naturally inspired by Andie from Pretty in Pink)! Honestly, I was terrified to do this, but I'm really glad I did. Since this semester was so blah for me, I've been constantly craving change. I cleaned out my entire closet in an effort for a fresh feeling, too. I know I've changed a lot this semester, and even grown quite a bit, too. I just hope things start picking up for me, ya know? I had a great thrift day so maybe that's the start of things starting to seem better... but who know? And besides, I only have A WEEK AND A HALF left of university life! 

Side note: Speaking of change, I realized I've only had about 50 posts thus far this year, compared to nearly 80 from last year. I don't feel bad about this drastic change at all. It was just one of those things where it made me realize, "Wow, I really have changed."

So the other day I had a Houston date with my dad since I have been home for Thanksgiving break. It was so much fun and so relaxing. Basically, a day like this was long overdue for the both of us. And don't get me wrong, I love the Austin area near my university, but nothing will ever be as satisfying and comfortable as Houston. 

Below is just a few photos that I've found really inspiring lately, and I hope y'all do, too!

I'm almost 100% sure I've posted this song on here before, but I swear it never gets old and it's never irrelevant. Good job, David Bowie. (Also the title for this post is a lyric from this song)
I will end with this angsty selfie I took in the Honors college the other day.

  1. yay I'm glad you had a good thrift day. Change can be good, or it can just be a different way of existing, ya know? It's strange to see such a minimalist layout for your blog but as usual your outfits and inspo pics are as colourful as ever <3

  6. I love love love your hair, it suits you so much at that length. Your outfit is completely amazing, I always love your outfits so much, you inspire me to take more risks with fashion. I think change is good, no one wants to stay the same person forever, it's what keeps life interesting. I feel like I've changed a lot this year too, I guess it's more about figuring things out. However you change, you'll always still be awesome! <3
