High Waist

October 27, 2015

Happy Bargain Find of the Week. 

$4 High Waist American Eagle Jean Skirt. The skirt I’ve been searching for. It’s better than high waist shorts by a landslide & I didn’t have to make it. I paired it with my rain booties because of the rain & because I wore my Hunters yesterday! My turtle neck was for a more dressy look & I love how comfy they are! I had 4 year Senior Cheer pictures today with the basketball players, & the wrestlers! 🙂 I’ll include some selfies from that 😉 I can’t wait to show you my Halloween costume & surprise you! Oh and sorry about no post yesterday…I was overwhelmed with stuff to do. I do want to tell you I followed my rule of thumb and dressed up. I am looking forward to working the spook trail and take some pictures this weekend! Book me for a shoot if you live near!

A Jewel of a Sunday

October 25, 2015

Warm & Cozy

Jeweled & Parisan 

Sunday is awesome! Fall is awesome! & this JCREW sweater is awesome. My church is awesome. Qdoba kids little naked burrito bowls with white rice is awesome. Especially @ the price of $1.75 with the purchase of an adult meal. 🙂 (THIS IS MY FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT EVER, LIKE I AM HAVING A QDOBA BAR @ MY WEDDING) About this weekend, I didn’t have a Saturday post because I was scaring at the Trail of Terror off of highway 76 in Anderson, MO! I was a spooky clown! BOO. It was so much fun, you should check it out next weekend & support the senior class. My look is awesome because it’s uber comfy. Currently I’m going with my mom to Club Tan to work on college essays while she gets a body wrap! It is this super awesome wrap that makes you feel great after a long week or if your freezing cold…(it is getting chilly) I did one before Homecoming so I would be less bloated.   

Oh! & don’t forget to look outside at the leaves, they are beautiful!

*I got these on my trip to France last summer. I purchased these loves in memory of my sixteenth birthday & being in Paris. I paid for these on my very own. I am a proud owner of ELIZABETH STUART COUTURE HEALS. I am so proud of myself for paying a lot more than I usually do for these babes. They make me think of Paris & how I wish to go back.

P.S. I’m serious about QDOBA being the best treat ever & if you’re looking for something to do next weekend check out Trail of Terror! I JUST MIGHT SCARE YOU.

Southwest Missouri STUCO DISTRICTS

October 23, 2015

Student Council Districts

Strafford, MO

My bright and early morning ended up being a great day! I LOVED districts this year and hearing our speaker Houstin Kraft! It was an awesome experience running for president even though we lost. Sad this is my last STUCO Districts experience since I’m a senior but I know Matt will continue my love for it. 🙂 Now I need a Diet Coke & to sleep….or to rush off to catch the bus to Districts at Webb City High School for football. Sad everything is ending but so happy for the experiences I’ve been blessed to feel in high school. Tomorrow I take the ACT so say a prayer for me to do my best! 🙂 hoping for some extra zzzz’s tonight! Check out my other post from this morning called 5:15A.M.

DOUBLE POST FRIDAY

5:15 A.M.

4:20 A.M.

My sheer love for STUCO.

Something I dread came up, I’m on fall break and I had to be up at 4:30A.M. in order to catch the bus for student council at 5:15A.M. Immediately I want to rethink my life but then I remind myself how much I love student council & how excited I am for DISTRICTS & that we are running for office. GO MCDONALD COUNTY. The only thing keeping me going and the happiness I fathomed up is all as a result of my favorite STARBUCKS @ home in my adorable milk jug glass. (Which were favors @ my surprise 16th birthday party) I highly applaud Starbucks for creating something I can buy at Target and drink at home when Starbucks is closed or just 45 minutes away because I’m in the boonies. & while you’re think wow she’s a bargain shopper yet she drinks that over priced Starbucks? Just know that this is actually quite the bargain & quite worth it with or without the sale. You can also check out my other fav flavor Skinny Vanilla (my favorite warm drink to order during the season) also chilled! These both are low cal & carb! This is great because I’m constantly on a diet. Later today I will post an additional post about my look because this morning it was to dark for my brother to capture a candid. Also that’s exciting my freshman brother Matthew is joining me on this early adventure as a member of Student Council! How exciting right? Love him & we’re so blessed! 🙂

P.S. Look for my GET MY LOOK post later! 🙂

CAMPUS TOUR TO CROWDER COLLEGE

I had a swell time today skipping school & touring this college! Friends & Fellowship! It’s crazy that we are considering colleges & moving towards graduating soon. My bestie and I had a grand time!! I got a picture with an avid blog follower I love Mrs. Connie Martin. 🙂 This college was cool because of it’s historical roots! Oh & it hails from 1963 like my little blue car! The look I’m wearing today was slightly guilty because it’s so comfy & it is getting to be the last time I can wear my tie dye. My friend Chloé is featured because I super loved her look! She rocks the chucks with dresses! Love her darling cardigan & necklace! Her look is mainly Maurices! My bestie Myka is wearing the quintessential
teen look of rocks, white chucks, baseball T, flannel around the waist, & HER SO CUTE MK BAG! I love the size of it!  Both Chloé & Myka have previously been featured on 1998miss.com so check for those posts. Oh & I featured some of my other homies from MCHS!

¿DENIM ON DENIM¿

October 20, 2015

¿DENIM ON DENIM¿

Risky, risky doing denim on denim yet I loved it. Somone today said you look like a “modern cowgirl”! This look was super trend based. It used to be a mega no no & rule of thumb to NOT EVER PUT DENIM ON DENIM….things change! I loved putting lighter denim with this mini. Wedges dressed it up & my bow belt was my favorite aspect because it sinched in the waist & added flare! I’m sure new rules are being written about how to wear denim on denim but honestly if you wear it you’re already breaking old rules so DO IT YOUR WAY!

Oh & tonight I had a blast with my friends at the volleyball game in JOPLIN, then eating @ HACKETTS HOT WINGS in Joplin. CHECK IT OUT IF YOU LIKE WINGS AT ALL. #1

Fall Fashion 

LOVE THESE BOOTIES 

Sunday’s are my favorite day! Why? Because I get to go to church! I love my Jesus! 

Sunday’s are amazing because I get to wear heals or just super dressy clothes! That’s why I call this section on my blog Sunday’s Best! It’s obvious now that fall is in full force & I am loving every second of it! The trees are beautiful & Happy Halloween is just around the corner & my friends have a special costume surprise for you! Check later for that post. My look today is super fun in my opinion because of these knit socks matching my bottom of my knit dress. HOLLA! Which was a goodwill find. 🙂
