Frost Queen

Jacket: Ebay
Dress and shoes: thrifted
Tights: American Apparel

This is an outfit that worked really well with my lack of eyebrows. One of my friends told me I looked like a frost queen, which is always an ideal look. Rosy cheeks, pale lips, and bleached brows are the way to go in winter.

Do Not Enter The Dog Park

Jacket: thrifted/diy 
Pants: American Apparel 
Shirt: Welcome to Night Vale merch 
Boots: Dr. Martens  
Hat: very old and I don't remember
Lipstick: Portland Black Lipstick Co.

Here I am looking real jaunty in my winter layers. I've decided to start documenting my more casual outfits because 1) I think they're still pretty cute, and 2) if I only post my fanciest outfits on here, it's not really an accurate representation of my style. Sometimes you just have to wear a t-shirt and jeans, you know? Plus this will hopefully motivate me to make my casual outfits look good too. I'm starting to accumulate a bunch of clothes that are practical and comfortable but still stylish, and it makes me a lot more excited to get dressed in the morning. This isn't to say that I won't still wear giant shoulder pads and floor-sweeping skirts, I'll just look better on the days when I take a break from the weird outfits.

Usually I'm not one to buy fandom merch, but these creepy deer won me over. If you're not familiar with Welcome to Night Vale, it's a free podcast about a fictional town in the desert where strange, unexplainable things are always happening. I highly recommend it if you're looking for something spooky and fun to listen to on your daily commute. It took me through countless long shuttle rides when I had my internship over the summer.

P.S. Sorry for the dodgy photo quality in these. Oncoming winter means that daylight is limited and even when it's light out, it can be cloudy and gross. There's only so much my little point-and-shoot can do!
