Fool’s Gold | OOTD

Today is like my 10th snow day and I have put an outfit together, took okay pictures and filmed a video and it is 11:30 am. This has been the most productive morning for a while and I felt like Christie’s Closet for some weird reason. Maybe because I was playing around with my clothes.

Winter Nights | OOTD

Hey everyone! How has life been treating you? I recently finished midterms and am so pleased on the grades I got in French and APUSH (it was a 77 but still good enough). I really want to get back into blogposts and keeping up on outfits so here is one from last Christmas.

My family and I went to Downtown Annapolis to see some of the lights they had to offer and why not do it on Christmas when everyone is inside and celebrating? It was cold but it was nice to be able to walk on the streets without cars running us over. I will hopefully include a vlog about my Christmas.

New Years Dancing | OOTD

Happy almost 2015! I recently made a video (which you can find below) with hair, and outfit ideas for New Years Eve. This is my absolute favorite out of the two outfits and I was so pleased with my hair that even while I was filming I was ‘Oh my gosh! I did that!’.

Here comes my awkward faces!

I did not notice that I had the headband like that!

I bought this dress Sophomore year hoping to wearing it to homecoming, but ended up not to. I have had this in my closet for a year and I have been wanting to wear it to. I love how the black dress has a simple flirty skirt and at the top it is sheer with black polka dots giving it a rather feminine and fun touch to the dress. The headband is gold with pearl and it gave the outfit a nice touch of color. I wear black so much that I never add a dash of color. I am also wearing my nude heels so it doesn’t distract so much from the outfit.

Self Expression, Not Self Obsession

I remember when my guy friend told me that I posted too many pictures of myself on Instagram and that later made me feel cautious on the pictures I should put on there. After my change of mine period (hopefully a post about that) I realized that it is my account and no one should have say on it.

I have this pet peeve when people say that I am ‘obsessed with myself’ which is the complete opposite. I do post a lot of pictures of myself but I am a fashion blogger, that is what others bloggers do as well. I may not be big but it really does not matter because I have put together an outfit or there is a picture I am in that I like and I wanted to post it. Recently I was going through my own feed and noticed how many pictures of myself I have (which compared to others is not a lot) I was afraid that someone was going to say something.

If you did not know but for the past few years or so, I really did not like myself and I always put myself down causing my self-esteem to be extremely low. It was a really hard time for me that I decided to change everything about I viewed the world including myself. I feel like that sometimes I feel ‘okay looking’, and there will other times where I actually like the way I look. No one is perfect and I always feel like I am ‘too ugly’ or never ‘pretty enough’.

But I learned to completely and fully love myself no matter how I look. Despite how many pictures of myself I post on social media, I like to express that I have came so far from a really bad part of my life to finally accepting every little flaw I have. Maybe I am not skinny, maybe I don’t have the nicest skin or the perfect hair but I do like that I have changed for the better. I love myself and I don’t care if you say it is ‘self-obsession’ because I am expressing who I am out of school. I am a blogger, I am a YouTuber, I am an imperfect girl living life in a crazy world.

There are times when I feel self-conscious about myself and sometimes maybe I post sad quotes (not too often) but it is better to express happiness than self-hatred.

So which would you rather see?

Love yourself and express every little unique about yourself. I love you and I hope for the best.

Until next time,

Elyse

Clean | OOTD

Hey everyone! Happy late Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday! As much as I would like to go shopping for those awesome deals, I am stuck at home with my puppy. I have had these pictures ready to be shown to the world! I absolutely love this dress for the past year I have had this. I saw my mother wear this sweater with a plaid skirt and I thought it would be cute to pair with the dress!

Batter Up! | Fanatics*

Ever since I was a young girl, I have had a fascination with baseball. I played in my front yard with my brothers and dad all the time, there was even a time that I wanted to be the first female pitcher in the MLB. The season currently ended which is upsetting as the Red Sox or Orioles did not make to the World Series. Even though baseball is over, you can support your favorite team by heading over to Fanatics.Untitled #190

 

I picked my favorite team, Red Sox, to be the major inspiration for my outfit. I tried to match the color scheme, maybe a little too much. For the top, I picked a simple blue baseball tee for the whole outfit not to be too crazy. Jean shorts are a perfect type of bottom for a hot day at the ballpark. I choose a flannel to help bring out the red B in the hat. I would like to wear the red flannel wrapped around my waist as it will give a laidback look. The silver bracelet gives the outfit a bit of a girly flair but not too much to make it seem like they belong at a party than a baseball game. The converse give it the ultimate ballpark feel and makes me excited for next season!
