LIFE // i'm not calling you a ghost, but stop haunting me


(I'm Not Calling You a Liar - Florence + the Machine)


Things I love about Halloween:
» dressing up. «
» candy. «
» the dark. «
» candy. «
» scaring people without looking like a jerk. «
» candy. «
» Halloween parties. «
» candy. «

Things I hate about Halloween:
» I forgot it was today. So I wore this long black witchy skirt and got asked "oh are you dressed up as a witch?" several times today. "NO THIS IS JUST HOW I DRESS! Are you dressed up as an idiot?" Sad eyes. «
» I feel like fifteen is kinda too old to go trick or treating so I'm just going to wait by my door eating candy and being depressed and wearing a witch hat until some children come along. Sad eyes. «
» there were no Halloween parties for me to attend this year. Sad eyes. «
» as of 7 o clock our only trick-or-treaters are four teenage boys. «
» IT EFFING SNOWED ON SATURDAY. On the 29th. What is this?! I hate Maine. «

My friend Ross dared me to wear a yellow argyle sweater today. I know. YELLOW. ARGYLE. It's so cheerful and preppy. It makes me cringe. So I paired it with aforementioned witchy skirt and evil-looking heels to make up for it.
Ross was unhappy about the heels. He dislikes my being tall.
(Caution, bad cell phone photo.)
Yep. Argyle twins.


So here's a couple outfits from the archives I never ended up posting. Partly because I'm lazy and partly because I'm so busy I don't even know what to do. Grease is opening on November 17th and we're nowhere near done. But my pink Frenchie wig came, so that's exciting.

back when there wasn't any snow....
jeans and shirt: hand-me-downs // shoes: converse // hat: somewhere in ireland

skirt and sweater and necklace: unknown // tights shoes and tank top: Forever 21

and here is me looking fairly normal. yikes.
jean jacket from Gap // all other pieces from Forever 21

Happy Halloween. Boo.

  9. I didn't greet the snow very happily either. October is too early for snow, in my opinion.

    It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who didn't go trick-or-treat this year. The argyle is very unexpected, but it actually looks nice on you. And the last outfit is so fantastic.

  10. Dude, I keep seeing you around the blogosphere like every 4-5 months; I come to your blog, I follow, I somehow never see any of your posts, and then I come back 4 months later and refollow. I honestly have no clue why this is but I just noticed it. I like your style, it's cute and different, something I don't see enough in the blog world! :] Anyways, THIS TIME I am following you on BlogLovin' and I am making sure I keep it there! ;)

  18. I love your outfit in the second picture. :) That's probably the most "normal" outfit I've ever seen you in.
    Heehee.
    But you can pull off crazy, so it works. :)

  21. Okay, this is too awesome. Olivia, you look amazing in argyle. Plus, you're never too old to trick-or-treat! I went as a half-dead zombie schoolgirl this year.

    Oh, and you can never be too tall, either. ;)
