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

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.

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!

On Pointe

Yes, I have worn this dress before. But it’s seriously one of my favorite pieces of my clothing. It is such a ballerina dress with its soft pink color and circle skirt. So of course I had to have a messy bun and delicate gold accents. So girly. So romantic. So ME!

P.S. Sorry I haven’t been able to post a lot lately. I’ve been working on all the summer work I have to get done before school starts. And I applied to COLLEGE! Woo small victories.

Geometric

Alas, the time has come for my month-long vacation to come to an end. Every time we come to California, we end our trip by taking my grandparents out to a nice lunch. And I had the perfect dress this year! My new favorite dress that I bought in Carmel has made a return. I wore it last at Pebble Beach, but now I wanted to show it to you full length. I love the lines and shape of this dress. And, I love the pockets! They’re huge!

Life’s a Beach

So I am finally in Monterey! My house here is one of my favorite places on the planet and I am so lucky that I get to come here twice a year! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera cord to download all the pictures, so I had to take a few on my phone. More pictures to come!

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
