You are simply impossible

It is nearing April first...so they skies should be clearing or raining at the worst.
No...this is Central PA so the weather has decided to dump snow upon us.
Just when we thought we could break out our shorts...or at least our short sleeves.
No matter. Being that we were inside, I was still able to wear one of my favorite pairs of pumps...a lucky thrift store find:


Who can resist canary yellow? :)

Nerd is the Word.

As our school's mathletes captain, I'm quite proud of our accomplishments...our local school board recognized our efforts in the Moody Mega Math Challenge.

Our team



...after 14 glamorous hours together.
Point being, high school is not about waking up and trying to fit in. It's about doing what you love regardless of what everyone else may think...figure out your own style if you do not wish to become a clone of others and join activities because you love them, not because others think them "cool."
Based upon my high school resume, I'd definitely say I did what I loved...Jillian: fashionista, mathlete captain, musician, and female wrestler.

Love what you do and do what you love :)

Through the years, the little girl remains

Naturally, because of the recent nice weather, we are predicted to receive possibly freezing rain overnight...which puts a damper (no pun intended) on going outside.
Such a lazy Tuesday...dug out an old favorite of mine.

I say "Oh yeah!" to Pok√©mon, too.

Why spend money on those new nifty thrifty-inspired T's when you can simply raid your closet for those shirts from your childhood that you just didn't have the heart to throw out?

 
I have a certain fascination with swings...
and neon-colored tights, oh my!


Sugar, and spice, and everything PINK!
Today's vibe was like Betsy Johnson meets Lewis Carol :)

Look, Ma, no coat!

After today's showers, it felt as if spring was officially upon us...at least until the predicted snow showers on Thursday. That's Central PA for you.
Got a chance to get outside in the sunshine today and enjoy a lovel-E afternoon...it also helped that we had a two hour early dismissal from school.




 Wellington's simply seemed appropriate for the weather...and certainly made jumping in the puddles more enjoyable without that soggy wet feet effect...ick.
Charlotte Russe makes cozy lace tops such as the one in which I'm trotting around. A belt adds a nice touch to bring out the stripes of my cami.

Official Happy Spring!

A little slow today...but happy spring to all! Today was beautiful and i managed to get out of the ol' homestead to spend some time in the out-of-doors region that is frequently avoided at all possible moments...



Enjoying the sunshine...star patterned cardi and floral skirt

 
Taking a stroll along the West Branch Susquehanna in my favorite Keds...i love them despite the holes and bit of green Sharpie on them. When it comes to shoes, you can tell how loved they are by how worn they appear.


 A boy in a cardi and cuffed jeans is always a "do" in my book.

A bit nippy noodles despite the fresh rays...


 A smile, above all, is the greatest accessory on a blustery day.
