totally not fahion related, or even fashion adjacent

Does that make sense? I like to say adjacent with subject that might be sort of related, but I don't know if people get it. It's like the subject is close to another topic, but not actually there. I don't know, it doesn't really make sense, but I say it anyways.

I do not have an outfit post for today, but I'm feeling rather wound up and felt like writing a little bit. My friends all just headed home from a fun and full day. My day started when I woke up an hour later than I planned, and had to run to meet my old japanese teacher and a bunch of other students for lunch. I went with Justina and Amanda. (I mention them a lot on this blog, as they are my best buds, but they are sometimes just called J and A. This is not an attempt at anonymity, rather we often call each other by our first initial, as do many of our friends. Together, we are JAR.) After three hours of chatting and eating pho (yeah, didn't go to a japanese restaurant, strangely enough), we went to Amanda's, baked cookies, and waited to hear from some of our other friends about hanging/band practice. Hung out, no band practice, went out to eat again (this time thai) and then ended up back at my place watching videos. Eventually we got sort of inspired and started making this silly little video ourselves. It's ridiculous, all about a boy who basically plays the game "hot lava" (remember? you can't touch the floor because it's lava so you have to jump from furniture to furniture) all the time. I wish I had a pictures from when we were filming, as my friends (it was all dudes except me and J, since Amanda went home before we started this project) are quite attractive boys. Actually, Tommy, the hot lava guy, has been posted on

You know, actually I have a few pictures from lunch today. While I'm not wearing anything especially exciting, I might as well post them.

That is most of the people at the lunch, JAR are all making peace signs, and my japanese teacher is giving herself bunny ears.

And there is (left to right): Amanda, Sensei, Justina, and me. Aren't my friends and teacher cute? Amanda does preppy style really well, Sensei is just kawaii (cute), Justina does a really good mix of super cute and kind of badass, and then there's me. I don't know how I'd describe my style. I guess I don't really know what I want it to be and that's why I have this blog.

I also have a picture from yesterday, before I met up with my dad. I headed into Seattle to see him, and we went to this cafe/bar where a bunch of guys from the Last Exit (it was a coffee shop my dad used to frequent when I was young, it does not exist any longer) meet up every Friday. They're really funny guys, weird old men who play cards and make dirty jokes all afternoon. Sadly, my favorite guy, the man who runs the UFO hotline (he also just ran for state congress) was not there. On the plus side, the bartender was attractive, despite a twirly mustache. I am pro facial hair on boys, but beards are always preferable. This is one of the first mustaches (they're getting so much more popular, I fear for the beards) I've actually liked. Anyways....

So I lied. I did talk about clothes.


  1. aww your outfit is very cute, lvoe the scarf

  2. Thanks! I wear scarves almost every day. I feel like they can make a really plain outfit a little less boring.
