mallory's productive week


so this week i have basically been crafting! i made six of the bib necklaces i wore in my last post and knit two circle scarves! (including the one i am wearing here). i feel very accomplished :)

i hope you all had a lovely holiday; i am pretty sure i gained a couple of pounds already...soooo many cookies. whenever i bake, i always manage to eat about a third of whatever i'm baking, which forces me to double recipes if i ever want to give some away. full.

i also have a comment about steve madden boots, who i am currently mad at! i have bought two pairs in the past two years, both of which have only lasted a year >:I . i had to replace my old riding boots with these ones, and i am kind of annoyed...has anyone else had issues like this? maybe i just walk like a monster leading me to wear them out super fast or something...

Mallory has left for france, but I'm still in Berkeley trying to find someone to sublet my room while I study abroad. People keep backing out at the last minute, and it's making me really angry. I still haven't found anyone yet :(

**Don't forget to enter our giveaway! Mallory and I have decided to extend the giveaway to December 30th.

bye bye, berkeley

this was the last photoshoot before mallory and whitney go abroad. this was also the last day they got to see each other...eight months apart :(. it was also super rainy and dark (so hard to take pictures!!) before leaving, though we got our nails done and saw Tangled (wow, seriously how cute was that horse! he was so angry and adorable!). anyway, we will be posting while we are away, though it may be a bit slow in the beginning as we are settling in! we hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

ketchup and mustard

hello all! so we both like to indulge in unhealthy food sometimes...a favorite (besides hot cheetos) being HOT DOGS! so what appropriate tights, eh? one time, when we were going to partake in said food, we went to a famous berkeley hot dog place and whitney had a traumatic experience. this hot dog place has lots of variety, and when it came whitney's turn to order, she asked which of the many options was a "regular" hot dog. the man replied (in a super sassy voice) does anything on this menu look regular to you?? mean...

but anyway, we still love hot dogs, and mallory managed to not get angry at this man and let him ruin hot dogs forever so its okay!

Whitney likes polka squares.

(thrifted vest; f21 socks, shoes, and tunic)

I love polka dots, but I love polka squares more! And remember this vest that I got a while ago? I'm finally wearing it haha..I think it's made of wool, so it's kinda itchy :( At least it's warm, and a pretty mustard yellow color!

mallory is a bear!


i have been super busy as the semester winds down :( i did at least get to shop around after my french visa appointment in san francisco. i got this hat at h&m this yesterday because our apartment is unbelievably cold! i even slept in it last night haha.

Whitney needs a haircut.

(AA skirt, modified h&m shirt, UO hat and tights, zara shoes)

Mallory is "braidzilla," so I guess I'm "bangs-zilla?" haha

I've had side-swept bangs for a long time and when I first came to college, my friends remembered me as the girl with bangs. I've only recently been clipping them up because they've become too long!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I'm so glad to be home, but I'm spending the rest of break studying for an upcoming lab practical :(

mallory is little blue riding hood

so i have been wanting a cape for a long time, and i finally found this perfect one at zara! it is now my favorite item in my closet :)

by the way, i don't know if you have noticed, but i am a bit of a braidzilla...i pretty much wear some sort of braid in my hair almost everyday. the weirdest thing happened in french class the other day. my french professor gave all my papers to this other girl in my class, and even called this girl by my name. this girl doesn't look anything like me, she is even blonde. my professor explained that she got confused because this girl was wearing a braid in her hair, and i always have a braid in my hair...apparently this is a defining characteristic of my appearance haha.

anyway, i hope you all have lovely thanksgivings! i plan to eat a TON of mashed potatoes (my favie!)

mallory is sick :(

this week i have been sick, and even had to skip some classes :(. so i went home this weekend to see my family and recover. i have heard that dogs help people heal faster, and i definitely feel better after hanging out with my pup, peanut! i know this isn't really an outfit post, but i promise i will have a new post early this week!

but, just in case you are wondering:

Whitney loves stepping on crunchy leaves.

Like Mallory, I've finally finished all my midterms and papers! Thursday night was pretty bad..I stayed up all night completing a paper that I started super late. Why do I always do this to myself?!

I got my second pair of Steve Madden shoes! They're hiding in the grass though :( Hopefully I'll be able to take better pictures next time! Also, for those of you who were wondering what nail polish I was wearing in my last post, I was wearing essie's "sew psyched."

mallory's white pants

so i made a stupid decision to wear these pants to my chemistry lab...obviously the one day i wear white pants is the one day i spill iodine. luckily iodine fades, but then someone's shoe kicked me (NOT on purpose...i don't think) and got them dirty! white pants are so dangerous. still not as bad as whitney though...she somehow managed to get iodine ALL over her face last year in lab...only whitney (love you whit :) )

thanks mallory!!

Thanks Mallory for the birthday post :D

On Saturday East, Janice, Mallory, Edmond, and I went to La Note to celebrate my birthday. We dressed up for funsies. The restaurant was really cute and relatively inexpensive (averaged about $15 per entree). It was dimly lit with hanging lights and candles. The food was also delicious! nomnomnom

(me, mal, east, janice)

my salad (normally, i'm not that healthy)

Mallory's food

oh, and free bread!

outfit photo

I got such amazing gifts! a handmade collage, domo cake, fake glasses, etc. etc.

Thanks for such a great birthday! i'm super happy! :D

PS: apologies for the poorly taken photos, im still learning! we were too hungry/anxious to dig in, so I didn't have the patience to take good pictures
