Outfit Posts

Are coming soon. I just got a lot of new (old) clothes, and realized that some of the photos my phone takes really aren't that bad. So if you like, stay tuned.

So It's Been a Month

And I haven't blogged. I HATE when my blogs go that long with a dry spell, but now I understand. It's hard to stay committed and involved, especially when, like me, you start school. So hopefully I'm back on the wagon.
I've been looking around at school, at fashion, and it's crazy how different it can be. Girls from Asia and, specifically, China, in the dorm, have a very specific look, which is often comprised of capris or cargo pants, and loose, big shirts. Their sneakers are different, too, a bit chunkier, but in a good way.
I've got some new fashion, too! YAY FALL! I got a new jacket, and a new dress- both are from Target. My grandmother visited, and we spent the day shopping and eating.
Most of our fashion? Shorts and a t-shirt.

Photos From the Past Two Weeks (Ish.)

Ocean City Boardwalk, from my beach week.

Once again, I am at the yarn shop! It's like that's all I ever do. I did get a haircut, and I have gone shopping again. So I might take some pictures of my NEW SHOES that I am wearing today. I LOVE THEM. But for now, I am posting some pictures I found on my phone, none of which have excellent quality, but all of which show some kind of interesting things. Soon, soon I need a camera. Or access to one. But anyway.

Posting Schedule!

This week is insanely busy for me! I probably won't get around to posting more than this until school starts, which is nutty but true. I have to pack this week (just imagine how much clothing I have to take!), and also go shopping and get my haircut. That sentence makes it sound like such a luxurious life, but it's fast-paced and hard to get through. Once school starts, I'll be sure to post about outfits and private Quaker school fashion- I know I'm interested in what it'll be like!

Beach Essentials

So I've done my list of essential festival clothes, but the beach is a whole 'nother ball of wax. I started packing today for our vacation coming up soon, and it's a BIG JOB. I've done 3 loads of laundry (normal, oh-i-found-more-wash normal, and warm water) and have one more to go (new jeans+towels).
What I've Packed (AKA The Essential Beach Wardrobe):
  • A thousand pairs of shorts, including short shorts, workout shorts, soffe shorts, pull-on-after-swimming shorts, and jean shorts
  • Tank-tops, and a lot of them. Lots of different colors, and one festival tank.
  • Coverup shirts, which for me are big button ups and a loose striped long-sleeve.
  • Lots of socks and underwear
  • Makeup, which I probably won't ever wear
  • Flip-flops, high-tops, and sandals
  • Bathing suit!
The one problem I have is the number of books and magazines to take. I need to take enough so I don't get bored, but if I bring too many, I'll never get to them all! What's a girl to do? Gosh.

Back to the Blogging Board

Here again at Lancaster Yarn Shop! This is the time of week that I generally have enough time to provide a blog post (not that I plan on blogging once a week). Once I am away at boarding school, I think I'll have more opportunities to get a good photo shoot or two in and post about them.

But today, I have exciting news! Tomorrow, during First Friday, Lancaster Creative Reuse is open for business!! You can like them on their Facebook page, here. One of the gals from our knitting group is helping with the idea and setup of the whole thing! Last night a few of us went over to volunteer and help out, while also eating brownies and getting a go at some shopping.
AND THEN. While perusing the shelves, I found some old Sew News magazines! They're from the 1990's, and there was a pile of about 3 years worth. I got all of them for under 5 dollars! LCR has amazing prices on EVERYTHING. I brought three along to read at the shop today, and if I find more amazing things in them, I'll be sure to post about it!

And also, a delightful little butterfly on our zinnia.

you say this was a skating rink?

According to my sources (ie, my mother), in The Past at Lancaster's Park City Center, which we usually refer to as "the mall", there was a roller-skating rink. I find this hard to believe, but she claims that before there was Kohls, a wooden-floored rink ruled the area next to the food court. Astounding!
And, as promised, some '70s photos of this very mall:
these photos are not mine, I
found them at Malls of America.

I think these pictures are very cool- finding little pieces of one's area's history can be interesting. I've never even heard of either shop in the picture to the left!
