I'm Baaaack!

Hello! Did you miss me? Probably not. I have been very busy with coming up with new & interesting blog stuff for you! Fargo was FUN. I went shopping! I have many new pieces that I am excited to show off! So, here are some of them! (WARNING: THIS POST IS RATHER LONG & TEDIOUS)
Top-thrifted   Skirt- Forever21   Socks- Forever21   Shoes-Brash  Purse-Target
This picture is all blurry. Oh well. You get the gist of it.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS AMAZING SPOTTED CHIFFON MINI SKIRT.
Over the knee socks are awesome.

This purse is from target, which we don't get up here in Canada, eh? We're getting it soon, yay!

I just LURVE this little watch-pendant-necklace-thing. I got it for Christmas.


So Fargo was fun! I thought it would have more tall buildings that I could take pictures of, but there weren't any! :( Anyways, to suppress my boredom on the LOOONG drive down, I decided to DOODLE. I actually always doodle, but these ones are actually worth posting. Sorry for the bad quality, I am too lazy to scan them into my computer.









And sorry about the really bad hands. I am truly crap at drawing tiny hands. I can draw hands on their own, but on a body, no way. If I lost the pen I use to draw these, I would most likely cry because I love it so much. Anyways, I am really bad at conclusions. Here is mine: BYE.

LOVE MAREN

p.s. I apologise alot in this post don't I? meh. 
also, I've been fooling around with templates & stuff. sorry about the giant red line around my posts.

Meadham Kirchhoff!!!!

Meadham Kirchhoff is just too amazing. I love all the bright colours, the layers and crazy combinations! Those tights are so cute. (not to mention those awesomely adorable and evil monsters!) The makeup and hair is so immaculate and precise, and I am just in awe of their Fall 2012 collection.

Anyways, I am going to be away for a few days, I'm off to Fargo with my folks tomorrow! I'm hoping to get lots accomplished fashion wise, also beauty wise! ( yay, shopping spree!!!) I'll take lots of pictures for everyone, and I have some (hopefully) interesting posts planned for when I get back. Has anyone here seen the Hunger Games yet? I am probably going to see it this week. If you have, tell me what you thought! I'd love to know!  See yalls in a couple of days!

You're Breaking my Heart

Helllooooo again! I have some LOVELY pictures for everybody! These were taken on Friday, when my Dad and I went a-walking. YES. I am actually wearing PANTS. For once. It was cold on Friday, so I kind of had to.
Top, jeans & scarf- GRG Purse- Forever 21 Boots- Brash
Yes. So. That is me standing on a picnic table looking very posed.

This week at school it is spirit week. Today was "Mad Plaid Day". I wore my long plaid skirt. Only 2 people in our whole school wear skirts. My friend and I. It's hard going to a school with 110 kids! Actually, my friend and I are the ONLY ones who dress differently. Actually, we are the only ones who wear SKIRTS on a regualr basis. Everyone else is into aeropostale, hollister and tna. I mean, sixty bucks for a hoodie is ridiculous. You are paying for a name, not a hoodie. I bet if that hoodie didn't say HOLLISTER on the front with a little bird and a 22 on the sleeve, no one would buy it!

Oh, and do you know how hard it is to ride a bike with a skirt like this?

Spring is in the Air!

Hello, hello. Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  Most of the snow is almost gone! Happy happy. It is beginning to be warm enough to wear skirts without tights! Actually, that makes me sad, I am obsessed with tights. I have about 10 pairs. That isn't as bad as my shoe collection though.....Oh well. that is a story for another time. ANYWAYS....shall we get on with the photographs, then?

These pictures were actually taken on Thursday, when there was no snow. Most of it is gone now. Good riddance.



I like living across the street from a river.

 CLOSEUPS:

Goodbye, winter.

I'll be Yours and You're Mine

Hello everybody! I wore stuff today. That was actually interesting. Yesterday I just wore jeans and a sweater, so I figured you would be bored out of your minds by that. ANYWAYS, I will quit my ramblings and get on with showing you lovely people my outfit!
Cardigan- thrifted Skirt & belt-Forever21 Shoes- Brash
Look at my beautiful red knees!
Ugh, I am so LIGHT from the winter! People actually ask me if I'm sick during the winter, that's how light I get.
I love oxfords.

 I love spring.

Almost all the snow is gone.

Now I can't ski during the break.

But I can shop!

It is so warm today. I took off my tights when I got home because it was so hot! I going outside to read after this. I got a new book from the bibliotheque. "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie". Apparently it's a crime. An' i do love me a goooood crime! Sorry. I kind of went all hillbilly on yalls for a second. I'm rambling again, aren't I? Sorry. I am a constant rambler. People say I talk too much. There I go again. I do apologize. BYE YALLS.

When I'm by Myself I can be Myself

Hellooooo! I made a DIY! It is about nails. Totally irrelevant to the title, but whatever. So. Here is how to do very unique, pretty nails. I did this on Sunday, but I just haven't gotten around to posting it.
I used OPI Tasmanian Devil Made me do it (a reddish orange)
Paint 2 coats of the polish
 When dry, add pretty designs, like these with a permanent marker.


YES THOSE ARE BOWS

After that, paint a clear topcoat on so the designs wont wash off. THE END!!!
If you want to see some really cool nails, go to http://stay-goldponyboy.blogspot.com/.


I had an interesting day. It was short. That is very good. I wore my Dad's socks today by accident. I pulled them up high to my knees because they were all bunchy at the bottom. Someone said they looked ridiculous. No, ridiculous looks like sweatpants, a baggy hoodie and slippers. AT LEAST DRESS LIKE YOU CARE PEOPLE. Sorry. Mini rant there. Goodbye!

Give me some Reasons to be Beautiful

So Today I actually wore an outfit that lives up to my blog name! Observe:

Shirt: Mom  Skirt: GRG  Tights: Forever21  Shoes: Docs

 CLOSEUPS:


Bracelets I made yesterday
I think I am obsessed with yarn. I have about 8 balls, and I just randomly started to make stuff out of it. So far, I've made a braid, some bracelets, and I tied my braids in it today. Except the braids kept falling out because of  the thick brown monstrosity that lives upon my head. (YES MY HAIR) ramble, ramble. Anyways, Goodbye.

Welcome!

Hello there! My name is Maren, and this is my  blog. I wanted to start this blog because I was inspired by all the blogs I follow. I would describe my style as vintage, but with a little modern twist. I get most of my clothes at thrift shops, Forever 21, and my mom. I am inspired by magazines like Teen Vogue and Nylon, and my favourite designer is Meadham  Kirchhoff. I started to be interested in fashion when I was introduced to Rookie in October.

On this blog you will probably see my outfits, my photography, music reviews, movie reviews and much much more. You will also probably see the occasional DIY!

Thank you for looking at my blog and hopefully following!

MAREN
