Polished

For some reason, this outfit just seems really polished. And really, really preppy. Going to private school does that to a girl. AND I got my hair cut! I love getting my hair cut because it leaves it so shiny and blown-out. So let me have my hair post and please don’t judge. I’m just so darned excited.

Ooh La La

This scarf. Is my favorite thing. I know I say about half my wardrobe is my favorite thing, but there is just something about this scarf- a certain je ne sais quoi– that i just adore. Plus I bought it in Paris so it gets automatic props. Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as usual. I am still getting back in the swing of things with school/ repeating outfits and I am too embarrassed to post about repeats. I’m working on it, y’all.

P. S. I’m still looking deathly pale. Sorry ’bout that.

Love Will Not Break Your Heart, but Dismiss Your Fears

Some nights you just need to listen to Mumford and Sons. So much soul. I love this dress- It is so comfortable to wear all day! I just needed to add the scarf and a sweater to make it through school! Temperatures are arctic in my school building. Sometimes I even have to carry around a blanket. But back to the outfit- one of my favorites! Perfect go-to for a late morning.

School Days, School Days

I survived the first half of my week! But it is seriously exhausting. Now I know why old people are so tired all the time… I don’t really have anything witty to say. I used all my brain power while I was at school. Sorry y’all. I promise I will try and sleep up to become my fabulous, funny self once again (just kidding).

Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching High School Musical and Disney melted my brain. Peace out

First Day of the Rest of My Life

I started senior year! Woo I’m so old! Crazy! But it was a good first day- we had a big breakfast with my whole class this morning and then we had a half day of school. But let me tell you- I am EXHAUSTED! Who knew being a senior was so tiring?

Bisous Ma Cherie

Y’ALL my sister is leaving for college! And it was my dad’s birthday! AND my friends came in from Kenya and we all went out to dinner. We went to one of my favorite restaurants in Midtown and we had the best time. It was so fun to all be together and just have a great time. I really love going to Midtown because it has such a different vibe than out here in the suburbs. But today I start my FINAL YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL! How crazy is that?! Y’all can follow all my adventures on instagram @maddiesee13 because I take pictures of everything!

P.S. I was originally going to name this post 50 Ways to Wear a Black Bustier because I wear this top so much. But it’s just so darn cute!

P.P.S. I am looking crazy pale in these pictures. I’m tan, I promise.

Hot Pink

Yesterday was my last day of my internship! Sad face! But is was seriously one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I learned so much from all the fabulous women at the magazine and I’m hoping I can go back and work for them again! But enough sadness. I got to wear my favorite skirt yesterday! This skirt is SO flowy, and whenever I walk, it seriously has the prettiest flow behind me. It’s like a glorious cascade of hot pink chiffon. I am obsessed. And it’s really hard not to be happy while you are wearing that much pink.

Cute as a Button

When you don’t know what to wear, go with a button down. They go with everything, and make everything look classically chic. That plus my favorite J. Crew skirt makes for a perfect summer work outfit.

Working Girl

One of my favorite trends this Spring/ Summer is the shorts suit. I really just love the whole look of a blazer with shorts. So here is my take on it! For the past week and a half, I have been an intern at Justine Magazine.  I really love working there, but it has left me exhausted! So I am really sorry that I haven’t been able to do a lot of posting lately. School starts soon, so hopefully y’all can see all my back-to-school outfits!
