Springtime Daisies


After months of rain and dismal, grey skies, spring is finally making an appearance in Washington! I haven't gotten much of a chance to get out and enjoy the sun this week, due to school and play rehearsals, but I finally took a trip to the park today. It was so sunny (and it still is as I write this), and a great deal warmer than the past few months. I just love Daylight Savings Time, who doesn't enjoy the extra hours of sun?


  Speaking of school, I recently was assigned what I think is the best homework assignment ever. I already love school, but my teacher took it to the next level. :) I get to 'create' my own country, including a name, laws, the population, government type, natural resources, and many other fun things. The best part? I can present it any way I choose! Of course, I chose a video, since I really enjoy film making. I am so excited to get started! I still haven't chosen a name for my country, though.


I never know what to talk about in fashion posts (I almost always resort to discussing the weather), and I thought it might be interesting to hear what you want me to talk about. I've heard a lot of people say that they like hearing about my life, so I'll try to do that more, but if there is anything else you'd like me to talk about, please don't hesitate to leave a comment and let me know. :)


- What I'm Wearing -
Dress, tights and belt // Forever 21
Oxfords // Birthday present


This week I have play rehearsal everyday except for Friday for the musical (Peter Pan) that I am in, and on Friday I am volunteering to do hair for Winnie the Pooh, another play that my local theater is performing this month.

What are your plans for the week? I'm also hoping to get out and enjoy the sun more, it is so refreshing!

    1. Thanks, Erin! The light actually was hitting the book and reflecting on my face. My own little portable reflector. ;)

  4. You are so pretty! And I love your outfit!

    Omg, we had to create a country, it was SO funny so countries teamed up with others and we would have an hour a day to work on it!
    It was probably one of my things of the year! Hope you enjoy creating a country :D

    1. Thank you thank you, Brooke! I bought it last June, so I'm not sure if they're still selling it. It wouldn't hurt to check, though. :)

    2. OHHHH! So that's why it wasn't there lol. Yeah xD Forever 21 gets rid of their old inventory every 21 days so it definitely wouldn't be there anymore lol. Well, it's super adorable on you! {I also love the tights and the shoes! Your outfit is actually the first outfit I've seen that I liked colored tights in}

    2. You're welcome Rachelle! Do you use any type of website to do your headers and such? It looks really nice, and the font is beautiful!

      Delete
    3. I just use Photoshop to design it (I downloaded the font from dafont.com) and image-maps.com to turn it into an image map. Thanks! :)

    4. I found the website! It's awesome! Do you mind to tell me what the font is called that you used? My sister absolutely adores it!

  13. Aw, Rachelle, stop being so cute! Actually, don't. ;) (wonder where I picked that up from...?) :D I love the book you had as a prop, too. That school assignment sounds super awesome! I tried doing that on my own once, it didn't get very far, but it was still loads of fun to try. ;D Hope to see you soon!

    1. Hehe thanks, Naomi! Hmmm...I wonder... ;) Thank you, the book belonged to Great Grandma Goble (Gobel?), I believe. It is incredibly fun, maybe you could help me come up with some ideas sometime!

    1. Thanks, Dakota! :) Not at all, I am happy to tell you where I got them from. I actually got them as a birthday gift from my mom, and she bought them at Kohl's; (right here). They're even on sale right now! :) However, if you want to get the color that I have, you might have to look for them in stores because online they only have size 5. Hope you find what you're looking for, thanks for asking! :)
