 As you can see, I am ready to conquer the world with my bicycle.

Except that it’s not mine.

SO I guess I’ll just pose with it instead.

I didn’t get much sleep last night (partly my fault[hot chocolate, I love you. Even if you are sugar-free], partly the fault of the music upstairs[he thought we were gone camping], partly because I got a text at 3:34am from a friend), and I woke up with a cold, so I’m playing hooky from church.

Yes. This is my version of a lazy Sunday outfit.

And yes, this dress falls under the category of “neutral” because it is white, and therefore is within my range of allowed colors for this fashion challenge I’ve put upon myself. I don’t care if it does have pink flowers on it. Shush. My game. My rules.

And if you’re wondering what is going on with my shirt or think it looks silly, blame Kendie. I saw her tie her shirt like this and I liked it, so I’m copying it. (She may have looked slightly more polished. Or a lot more polished. And yes, I am blaming someone who is probably completely unaware of me, and who I’ve never met before in my life.)

This batch of pictures is batch number two of today. As mentioned before, I’m running on a lack of sleep, and after several minutes of trying to figure out what to do with my head, I decided to take the “I don’t care how I look” route and do as little as possible. Needless to say, that didn’t work out so well. Because even when I don’t care how I look, I care how I look.

So just for you, I did my hair properly and covered up the weird breakout on my left cheek. This way, I don’t have to crop out my head.

And I’m sure you’re all thankful for that. Headless pictures are creepy.

By the way, I braved death to bring you these pictures. Something was in the woods. This is me trying to figure out whether I should stay or run:

Obviously, I stayed. It’s fortunate I’m alive.

    HAHAHHAHA you’re so hilarious! Thanks for making me feel better *I’m kinda too anxious for my Ancient Greek exam tommorrow :(*
    You are amazing! 🙂 And the outfit is beautiful! I blame Kendie for the beautiful knot! It’s really cool and unusual! I love love love it and I’m actually gonna try it! 😀 Pretty skirt too! You REALLY look gorgeous! And the bike is very nice, such a pity it’s not yours. You could still take it though 😛
    Good niiiight :*

      I’m glad this made you feel better. 🙂 Don’t be anxious, you’ll do amazingly!
      Haha, I’m glad you like it. I like the way it looks, too, but you have to be careful how thick the shirt is. 😀 And it’s good when you don’t want to belt something or whatever. 😀
      Thank you!
      Haha, I’m sure I could. It’s my brother’s roommate’s bike, and he NEVER uses it.

    I like your new outdoor pictures! And the bicycle does add a nice touch.

    Green is one of my favourite colours to wear. 😀 Way to go!

    • Mara

      Thank you! It’s way more fun to pose outside. I just wish I lived closer to a town (that I could walk to) so that I’d have more diverse backgrounds.

      Green is becoming one of my favorites, too.

  • Jamie Rose

    Your dress is so pretty! I love how you mixed it up by tying the green shirt over it. Cool shoes too! Also, these pictures are really cute with the bike.

  • Sarah

    Im so glad you made it out of the woods alive for us to see these adorable pictures. AHHH knotted tees are so cute and its ALL KENDIS FAULT (whoever kendi is sorry) HA. I love yoru bike. I want one but its been so long I would probably fall over and thats not very stylish is it.

    I think Im headed for comment overload on your blog today. 😛 sorry if you thought it would be somebody cooler HAAHA x

    • Mara

      You should look at Kendie’s blog! She’s got amazing style! She’s one of my favorites. 😀 Yeah, that bike isn’t comfortable to ride because the seat is all metal. It needs a nice cushion (I mean, I have a big butt, but it’s not THAT padded. :D)

      Yay! I don’t want anyone cooler, because I like you. 😉
