Not only do I love her on Downton Abbey but I’m also quickly falling in love with her personal style. From her color blocked dress at the Emmy Awards to her leather shift dresses, when it comes to edging up her formal wear she can do no wrong in my eyes. Also, how awesome is her owl tee and velvet skirt combo? Too cute!
Inspired by this song by Washington and the more moodier weather we’ve been experiencing here in Oregon, I decided to pull out an all blue outfit. Luckily, though, it had stopped raining for the good majority this past Sunday in order to catch a baseball game and take some photos in one of my favorite areas in Eugene. The arts section of the university, where the studios are, are mainly situated closest to the river and on the way to the football stadium and baseball park. I have always loved the art on the side of the buildings, the bright colors and the larger than life fruit.
Oh, y’all also can now see the pixie! I’ve tried quite a few short hairstyles ever since cutting off a good majority of my hair a few years ago and to this day the pixie is still my favorite. And I know I was inspiring to attempt to grow it out a bit longer…but I just couldn’t, not only did I not have the patience but it also was starting to not feel like me.
P.S. I had to put in the last picture, just to add a little sass 😉

I’m so happy that the weather is finally getting warmer here in Oregon! The fact that I can wear these polka dot shorts now makes me giddy. I love the flowiness the pleats give as most high waisted shorts tend to get a bit too tight in the thigh area.
Also, I’d love to do more outfit posts. Shooting for it with my friend in front of the new science complex on campus was definitely a-lot of fun. Plus, I do like the way the photos turned out 😉
Y’all have a wonderful Friday–I’m off to see the Dali Lama speak!
