Tin Man

 dress, Buffalo Exchange / rain boots, Burlington Coat Factory / cardigan, thrifted

I got no arms
I got no legs
Got no shoulders
But I got a head
I got a head that tells me stupid things to do.
But I got heart
"Tin Man" - Animal Kingdom

Yesterday was such a busy Friday. To combat my hectic day, I wore something simple and easy. I really love this dress that I bought at Buffalo Exchange in Portland, Oregon. It has a really fun pattern. It was also raining all day, so I had to wear my rain boots!

Friday Finds #6

I decided to change my "If I had a million dollars..." posts to  be called Friday Finds instead. I like the idea of a shorter name, and who doesn't love a good alliteration? 
Navy Flapper Dress by Ark & Co @ Chloe Loves Charlie
I don't have any fancy event to attend, but if I did I would absolutely 
want to be wearing this gorgeous flapper-inspired dress.

The Cosmic Tie Dye Legging by Our Prince of Peace @ Miss KL
Velvet + tie dye = the best possible combination the world has to offer. No further comments.

wanted glitter back booties 
Wanted Glitter Back Booties @ South Moon Under
This booties rock because 1. they're faux suede and 2. they have glitter. Aren't they fabulous?

Turquoise Heishi Pear Necklace - Click Image to Close 
Turquoise Heishi Pear Necklace @ Deloom
I really love the color and patterns combinations of this necklace. So gorgeous!

And some more................
  1. These earrings by House of Harlow over at 80s Purple are so bold. Who thought that gold and silver, geometric shapes, and skulls would all look so great together?
  2. How comfy does this jacket from Tobi look? The only problem: I would probably never take it off.
  3. I adore the cut and the 90s floral print of this skirt by Brandy Melville.
  4. This half moon necklace at Material Addict is so fierce and would instantly make any outfit awesome.

Wishlist Wednesday: Chicnova

Every Wednesday, I figured that I would share some items that are on my personal wishlist at various stores online. This spotlight is not sponsored, nor am I affiliated with any of these companies; I just like their products.

To kick things off, I figured I would start with Chicnova. They have a really wide variety of clothing, jewelry, and accessories. My wishlist is huge(!), but here are some of my personal favorites:

For some reason, you cannot link to your wishlist on this site. If you really want to see my entire wishlist, I can gladly email it to you (it was just my 21 1/2 birthday last Friday after

Also, new members get 20% off they're first purchase!

I wore this outfit to class and work on Monday. :)

sweater - Atmosphere, thrifted / blouse - Lina, thrifted / pants - Delias, thrifted / shoes - Puma, gift

I'm still alive, but I'm barely breathing
Just praying to a god that I don't believe in
"Breakeven" - The Script

I'm not really a huge fan of The Script (although they were quite good live!), but I figured that the first line of the song fit my life very well right now. I have been struggling with some sort of asthma issues for the past two weeks that have rendered me nearly incapable of breathing. I am on the recovery, though! I hope to be completely better very soon.

Tumblr Tuesday [1]

Tumblr has been a serious addiction of mine for the past few years. I have somewhere in the realm of 4 pages, but I really only maintain two of them. These are vredig and wildflwrchild. vredig (which means "peaceful" in Dutch) is my "personal" tumblr, while wildflwrchild is (you guessed it) a fashion-y blog that mostly coincides with this blog. Here are some of my favorite pictures that I've reblogged this week.

*Please note that I will include the sources if they can be found, but they are generally hard to find using tumblr. If you know a source of a picture, I would love it if you could send me it so I could properly source each picture.

This is what a vegan eats [1]

So in order to maintain some sense of responsibility when grocery shopping, I figured that I would start posting what I buy after each trip to the store. I am on a mandatory meal plan at my college, so I do not "need" to buy much food from the grocery store. With this being said, I am a vegan and the vegan options at my school are very limited. Note: If you're wondering why I rarely buy fruits or veggies, it's because I buy them with my meal plan at the salad bar most often.

1: organic yellow corn tortilla chips (I have guacamole in the fridge already!!)
2: organic plain soy milk (for my morning granola/cereal)
3: Soyummi(R) dark chocolate pudding (vegan/gluten free)
4: Vans(TM) wheat/gluten free blueberry waffles (also vegan)
5: rolls (to make hummus/guac/veggie sandwiches)
6: Muir Glen(R) organic mild salsa
7: Dark Chocolate Dreams(R) dark chocolate peanut butter
8: organic peanut butter
9: sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds (for some trail mix I'll be making)

I also have an outfit post from today that should be up sometime tomorrow. Hope you've all had a sunny Monday!

Dorm Room Style

I cannot believe the my final year of undergrad is already underway. I do not feel old enough to be here (sometimes I still think I'm 17 or so). I will have my bachelor's degree in  less than 8 months.
At my school, off-campus living is very minimal and over 90% of students live on campus for all 4 years. I'm one of those 90%+. Dorm living definitely has it's ups and downs. I really love being able to decorate and arrange a new room every year. I always see so many fabulous dorm room ideas online, so I figured I would share some that have been inspiring me to decorate my room (or side of my room - I have a roommate) this year. Eventually, I will hopefully be posting some pictures of my own room to share (granted it looks good enough for me to want to share).

If I had a million dollars... [5]

 Shorty Got Low Burgundy Maxi Skirt @ LuLu's
This maxi skirt is perfect for Autumn, and the slit up the side makes it sexy & playful.

Jara Pink Bracelet @ Bohemian Closet
The combination of the bright gold links and the earthy agate stone is just so perfect.

Woodland Pony Dress @ Spool No. 72
Not only is the color of this dress gorgeous, but it has unicorns on it! Enough said.

Cactus Tealight Candles @ Threadsence 
These cactus candles are just so adorable that I'm not sure I could even bring myself to light them.

And some more..........
  1. How adorable is this owl watch by River Island over at ASOS?
  2. This Guatemalan pencil case by Precious Hands at Blue Planet would be perfect to help me make sure I always have the right pens, pencils, and whatnot for class.
  3. I could really use a new pair of flats, and these flats over at Alloy are too cute (especially in magenta)!
  4. Mushrooms are one of my favorite organisms, and this mushroom tee at Soul Flower is cute and eco-friendly (my favorite!).
