First of all, let me apologize for the awful quality/angles/lack of creativity with these photos.
I haven't slept in a few days and I just feel so out of it. And I would do an outfit post, but my face is still swollen/red from an allergic reaction I had with a makeup product. Awesome.

ANYWAY, my back-to-school shopping has begun, clearly. These are all the things I've picked up within the last month or so for school.
I didn't really notice until I even made this post, but it appears that I'm really gravitating towards pinks, neutrals, and polka dots. And skulls. I love skulls.
I'm excited to wear all of the sweaters I've gotten, but those won't be put to use until December because of the awful heat in Texas. I also am super duper excited to finally have a pair of quality black jeggings! Thank you Levis, you are never a disappointment. They fit so nicely and are extremely comfy.
Although I was initially really excited about my backpack, when it got here I found that it was teeny tiny. The site I bought it off of didn't mention that is called a "mini" backpack (or so Roxy calls it). I really like the style, though, so I'm going back and forth on whether I'll return it.

I've also bought a ton more things online that haven't arrived yet. My online spending is out of control. I'd say that I need to stop, but I really don't want to. What's better than getting mail and having new clothes? Probably nothing.


  1. oh man, you got a bunch of cute stuff! I'm still in between buying things for summer and school. I'm so torn between the two. I totally get what you mean about Texas heat. It's been too hot to even think about going outside :C love the skull accessories!! <3

  2. Love your new backpack! You definitely got a ton of cute stuff!


  3. Aw, so many cute purchases. I love the color theme going on.


  4. I love all of them! you've made me want to go shopping. how would you rate the quality of forever 21 clothes? like how long do they tend to last etc x

  5. Hey Susie, this is Chelsea (cursive-lines from tumblr) and I saw this suit on my dash and thought of you and your love of skulls; http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyi00jZxUH1qerax7o1_500.jpg
