where rainbows melt like lemon drops

At last, it's time to bid farewell to summer! That sounded slightly dramatic/ Shakespearean. Also slightly optimistic. So not what I was going for. Like, sooo not. Like, that's sooo not cool. (Like, I sound like I'm quoting something. But I'm not. Hey, original material! Even better!) Let me try again: SUMMER'S OVA THIS TOEDALLY SUXXX. Ah hah! Blunt with the touch of teenage charm...

This outfit was oodles of fun to wear, as I felt like a walking rainbow. And, in case you didn't know, that is the best kind of rainbow. Static rainbows are so 2007. Pfft, and you call yourself trendy? When pigs fly! When cows swim! When Lexy's a loser! Ha-ha! (The last one's the odd one out? DON'T SAY THAT.)

Here's the sibling! You already know that! This is actually one of my favourite outfits of hers. I feel like I could attach awkward magazine phrases to it, such as "modern vintage!" and "casual girlie" - but that's, you know, awkward. So pretend that didn't happen. Here's the sibling!

I'm feeling uninspired today. I think it's due to that lingering cloud of school. (That last sentence also doubles as a non-funny inside joke with myself. It's cloudy outside! Now you're in on the joke! Can someone PLEASE comment "oh clouds! LOL" followed by "inside joke! You wouldn't get it, people that don't actually read what Lexy writes! Hahahh." This will cause insane jealousy from the outsiders.)

See the sorrow in Daisy's eyes? It's the end of summer speaking. I'm telling ya, it gets everyone!

As I've alluded towards, the weather's taken one for the worst. (Okay, wow. I'm obviously, like, prepping myself for Drama Class.) (And I'm not even in drama!) Which is okay, I guess. Bad weather has actually resulted in a few projects that occurred on the whim due to not experiencing the great outdoors. Such as the little video below! This was actually supposed to be a tester, but I *improvised* and made it the real thing.
(See the utilization of *improvise*? I should be a Drama Star, I tell ya!) (You know? Because you IMPROVISE in drama?)

Nothing exciting occurs. HOWEVER, it's only ten seconds long. So if you watch it and hate it, I won't feel even a little bit guilty because what can you do in ten seconds? Nothing but WATCH THAT.

Song snidbit - HeyHiHello! - Don't Quit! Not Quite!

School starts in two days, which means days filled with inspiration, ideas, and lots more posts! Oh wait, I got myself confused with SUMMER. (see what I did there? An attempt at a humorous approach as a distraction from my bitterness?) What I said about school? It really will happen. On opposite day! (Who used to have opposite days? Not me! Kidding! I was exemplifying how opposite day works...)

Hope you're all soaking up your last days of sunshine and freedom!* Tell me funny first day stories!

*Yeah, I need to join drama. I'm a natural dramatic! Move over, Meryl!

SCHOOOL SUXXXXX but hopefully your awesome fashion will help seep into my brain causing me to wear amazing ensambles so everyone at school will worship me as a fashionista (boy Sarah, keep dreaming). Haha you can live your gym works out through me as long as I can be fashionable through you!

You look so great!!! I especially love the first outfit. I really like how you can make the seemingly "silliest" pieces work on you (lets face it, no one can pull off those shorts as well as you do). You are truly inspirational!

"oh clouds! LOL" followed by "inside joke! You wouldn't get it, people that don't actually read what Lexy writes! Hahahh."

1. LOVE THIS OUTFIT! Lexy, that necklace/balloon/thing? I'm stealing that idea! PLAGIARISM, oh yeah!

For some reason the sibling's photos haven't loaded for me, but you look totally awesome as usual! Love the colour of the blouse. Love the flowers. Love the shorts, and the glasses... well, you get the point.

And I'm sooo glad that somebody else thinks it suxx that summer's over and is not looking forward to tights and boots (guys, we have like 9 months at least to wear tights and boots for, what's to get excited about?)

I love the picture of your floating keds - it looks professional. It could totally be an advertisement in a magazine (for the shoes or detergent or something!).

Your shorts are SO COOL. Seriously. You look great! :)

βe said...

Hahaha, summer has just started (well, kinda) for me (because I live in Australia). But I guess that's not really 'good' for me because I hate summer.

Whoa! 'Did you REALLY just say that?' 'Yes I did'

Yeh, I dont like summer, I actually hate all the seasons :|
Anyway, I love the little 10 seconds vid you made. It reminds me of this add I saw. . . I think it was a Target add. . .

jewel said...
