Tiger Bait

This weekend I got to go to New Orleans! A ton of my mom’s family went to the University of Washington, who just do happened to be playing LSU this weekend! And I will take any excuse to go to New Orleans. While I dressed ambiguously to avoid any heckling, my cousins were decked out in their UDUB attire, so nearly every LSU fan we passed yelled “TIGER BAIT” at us. But that was to be expected. We stayed at the lovely Waldorf Astoria in the French Quarter and ate some of the best food! I can’t wait to go back!

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.

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!

At the Rodeo

Last night, I went to the fair with my two godsons (7-year-old twin boys) and their sister (9), who was supposed to be in the rodeo. Unfortunately, her horse was hurt and unable to perform. Afterwards, though, we went out and rode some rides and ate fair food and had a wonderful time. As soon as I was asked to go to the rodeo, I knew I had to wear my cowboy boots. It’s a rodeo for Pete’s sake. So I fit right in with all the real cowboys 🙂

Sidewalk to Catwalk

The other day, I had the opportunity to go to the De Young Museum in San Francisco where Jean Paul Gaultier had hundreds of his creations on display in his Sidewalk to Catwalk exhibit. It was such an amazing exposition, and I was so happy that I was able to go. The exhibit not only had a ton of his clothes, but it also showed his fashion shows, his photography, and movies where his garments were featured. This exhibit was so well done and if anyone is in San Francisco, I highly recommend going to see it.

Photo cred to my sister.

The Power of Positive Thinking

So yesterday I flew to California! Woo! I had to wake up at 4:00 a.m. to catch my 6:00 a.m. flight to Atlanta, and then flew from Atlanta to San Francisco! California is seriously one of the greatest places ever, and even though I come here twice a year, I never get tired of it. But I was incredibly tired after my day yesterday. Because California is 2 hours behind, so when you think it’s 9 o’clock and a semi-reasonable time to go to bed, it’s really only 7 o’clock. But I mustered through it and here I am. As soon as we get into San Fran, it is a tradition for my Grandpa to take my mother, sister, and me to Nordstrom and eat at the cafe there (we also do a little shopping). So, after we finished eating, I wanted to go look at all the makeup- because lately I’ve had some obsession with makeup counters. I went straight to the YSL and found this gorgeous red lipstick. Now, normally, I don’t wear red lipstick on a day-to-day basis. But, once I found this one (#18 red taboo), everything changed. I fell in love. But, when the lady went behind the counter to look for it, THEY WERE OUT. I was devastated. Fortunately, the anniversary sale is coming up, so what better excuse than that to go back?

P.S. I never got to do an complete photo shoot because I passed out as soon as I got to the house, so all of these were either taken at the airport, on my computer on the plane, or in the car. SORRY
