new glasses, new me

Okay, not really, but I did get new glasses
Thank you BonLook for creating affordable glasses :] I got this pair.

Anyway, I always feel like such an idiot when I take pictures of myself on the porch, but I would feel even more self-conscious making my roommates take them honestly. At least my town home has beautiful wood paneling that I can use as my backdrop...and my back porch is a story or two from ground level, so it's less awkward.
This look is what I call my lounge-around-my-house-writing-a-paper-look. My favorite look! Warm, comfy, neutral and these glasses make me feel extra intelligent [and hipster] so it's no wonder I just wrote a kickbutt paper. Maybe...probably not and it's okay, I will allow you to call me hipster this one time ;)

The cardigan was a hand-me-down along with these black tights (from eighth grade!)
Flannel was JC Penny and knee-high socks are from TJ Maxx. Ralph Lauren I believe?

Anyway, four days until I get a breakity break from school, kind of.
I can't wait!

This weekend includes Manchester Orchestra + Deer Hunter show in Charlotte, shooting my first wedding and HOME. Home sweet home. Look out for my package pal post in a few days :] Can't wait to share what LauraJane got me! Can't wait to see what everyone else got/gave.

Have a great week friends!


  1. you are SOO darling!! and i love your knee socks!!!

  2. You are just too adorable for words.

  3. YES!! woo too love them, look great!

  4. Seriously though, I know I already tweeted you about it but this is just too adorable!! Those glasses suit you so well! Get ready for some fun styling because my glasses are my most favorite accessory. I find myself planning outfits around the glasses these days haha. Also, I've come to learn that boys REALLY dig them... justtttt sayingggggggg ;) They find the excuse of "Hey, I really like your glasses" as a great ice breaker haha.

    I have missed seeing Manchester Orchestra about a million times, and the same for Deerhunter! Hope you have a blast though! That's sure to be a great show.

  5. oh my gosh...I just got the warm fuzzies just looking at this outfit...I LOVE IT!! have SUCH a great smile :)

    p.s.-did you get the BB Dakota Tank?!

  6. You are too cute! I like those frames on you :) I love comfy looks and wish I could pull them off for work :P Haha. And I totally know what you mean about the camera thing. I would much rather be in front of it by myself than have someone else taking it. I even feel uncomfortable having TJ take my picture.

  7. Melissa, you just broke the cute meter.

    And I will ALWAYS call you a little hipster.

  8. charming :) and I love your porch. if i live there, i'm taking a lot of self-photos too. lol. you have a gift for photography! keep it up!

    pls visit my blog and leave a comment if you like. I'll appreciate it.

  9. i LOVE THEM! i love that last picture, too cute!
    and i can't wait to see your goodies from your package pal! :))

  10. Love the glasses, girl! I kinda wish I needed glasses when I see cute ones like those ;)

  11. Those glasses are cute! I have two more days before I can relax and forget about exams and worry about casseroles lol. Good luck on everything!

  12. I love your outfit, your glass, your backdrop, and most importantly you!! Ahh, you are just so cute - I LOVE the first photo!

  13. SO cute! I love the wood and your new glasses!

  14. Love the glasses! And your outfit! Someday I hope we can go shopping together. Heehee. I also feel ridiculous taking photos of myself AND having others take them. It's not my favorite thing. But you look so natural in yours!

  15. you are so cute! i'm digging the glasses, giiiirl!

  16. love 'em! they look a lot like my rayban glasses. so we're like twinsies! haha

    your town home must be ridiculously nice! have fun on your break! :) it's nice to get away from school for a bit. hehe

    & oh! i love your handwriting! (in your previous posts) definitely need to set some goals for myself as well.
