Spring Haul!

Hello my friends!
A little less than a week ago I uploaded a new haul to my YouTube Channel, and I thought I would finally share it on here. I'm finally getting back into the groove of uploading regularly on both here and my YouTube.

I'm going on vacation to Denver tomorrow, and I can't wait to get some great pictures while I'm there!!! 
I'll talk to you soon.

Photo Set: On the Road

Hello my lovely friends!
How has your week been so far? I'm incredibly happy it's finally halfway over; this week could not be any longer. I hear back from MIT on Friday (it's Pi day, get it) and I do not know if I can wait another day and a half. I'm just itching to find out!
 In other news on Monday I took some photos for my film class with my beautiful friend, Nickie, and I absolutely adore how they turned out! I took them right before sunset, and the lighting turned out just lovely.

The (film) photos I had to take for class were under the theme of surrealism, which is why I like the below photo so much. Her face is blocked out, yet it is obvious she is leaving somewhere, heading out On the Road. 

Even though it looks freezing in most of these pictures, it was actually around 40 degrees most of the time, which enabled us to stay out so much longer! I can't wait for the warmth to finally settle in.

Do you guys like seeing these types of photos? Let me know!

I'll talk to you soon,

ALSO this dress is for sale on my Etsy shop, Mint Rose Vintage.

Throwback to Sunny Days

As I mentioned yesterday, this cold weather has seriously got me down! I miss the warmth and green scenery. This winter has gone on far too long. 
Last summer I made a video with my wonderful friend Nicole, which you can watch below, and I just recently found some photos that we also took around that time. It seriously has me wanting this school year to end sooner!

We went to a forest preserve near to my house, and just messed around while we were there. We spent the day filming and painting, and it was absolutely lovely. I can't wait for the crisp smells and open windows in the summer. 

Here are some photos and screenshots I took of the video. Gosh, I'm glad I went back to brown hair!

What are you missing the most?

Spring Wishes: Featuring Shop Ruche!

Hello everyone!
I don't know about you, but I have been wishing for spring more than anything. It just snowed an extra 6 inches today. It's March, Mother Nature, go home you're drunk. All I know is that looking at pretty dresses and imagining the sunny days ahead have helped me cope with the winter blues. As such, I have compiled some of my favorite pieces from Shop Ruche! I have been following Ruche's collections for a few years now, and I have always loved the soft and delicate, but still trendy, aesthetic they have. It matches me perfectly!
Swinging Band Polka Dot Skirt
If you know me, then you know I'm a sucker for navy/black and white polka dots. No matter the style of the piece, it automatically gives it a retro vibe. But what I love the most about this skirt is the buttons down the front! It's such a cute and unique quality to it.
Enchantee Tunic Dress By Kling
Let me first start off by saying I am absolutely in love with this dress. I adore how it has a looser fit yet it still gives off a tailored and polished look, which is the ultimate confidence booster. And the slight sweetheart neckline is just perfect. 
Darlene Bow Detail Dress
This is another dress that I immediately fell in love with. I always find exposed backs to be so sexy but feminine at the same time, without being too open. (If that makes much sense, ha!) But the color of this dress is the most delicate shade of blue, and I think this would make one look like a doll!

Edith Flatform Wedges
I've been looking for a pair of 70s inspired wedges for a while, and these shoes fit the bill perfectly!

Ruby Dress By BB Dakota
This is another dress that seems to speak directly to me, and I don't know if my wallet can handle all of the adorable dresses I've been looking at. The slight ruffling at the bottom creates such a light look to the dress!

Simple And Sweet Button-Up Blouse
Even though this is a more obvious addition to a closet, I can't help but admire the collar and fit of this blouse. I also love this almost-cream color, and I think a good button up with a cute collar is such a necessary piece in a closet. 

Riviera Pendant Necklace
Last but not least, I found this amazing necklace! I've been seeing this style everywhere, and I love the early 1930s vibe it gives. Not only that, but that soft shade of salmon-pink makes it so unique.

Those are some of the items I would love to have as part of my wardrobe this spring, as I am trying to go for a more delicate but vintage look at the same time. ^^ 
I'll see you soon!
