it's that ancient love that you won't outgrow

It’s that time of year. Yes, THAT time. “Oh, what time is that?” you ask, your eyes blinking with wide-eyed feigned interest (thank you, I appreciate your falsity.) “Oh,” I respond, a huge smile plastered on my face. “Just the start of EXAMINATIONS!” I say this with a toothy grin and an extra dose of enthusiasm, much like an annoying flight attendant. On a sugar high. Exuding false cheeriness. (This acts as a juxtaposition to the reality of the situation. It also shows that I’m sarcastic, and therefore able to make light of situation/ basically hilarious.)

Sorry if updates are on the low-go. Blame the boring books. (Check out THAT alliteration? Eh, ehhh. I hear the gents line up for that kind of literary eloquence.)

In the meantime, enjoy being blinded by this even-more-obnoxious-than-usual outfit. It was fun!

Um, are these gloves not the greatest or ARE THEY NOT THE GREATEST? I was wearing my plain-jane black leathah gloves, when my mom came home all, “Here you go.” I obviously started doing the chicken dance on the kitchen counter out of passionate enthusiasm. Just kidding. I obviously didn’t do that...

But, yes. I love the vibes of the gloves. It’s like, “Yes, I am part of the CIA and here are my serious leather gloves to divert your knowledge of my criminal undertakings but OH WAIT. I’m still really fun because there are colourful circles sprinkled about. KAPOW, I’m a superstar.” I seem to think that a bullet-shooting water gun would compliment this concept quite nicely.

I don’t usually wear pendants, but I borrowed this from the Sibling. I’m really liking the dot motif. It reminds me of my prom dress. *oooh, everyone gasps at the mention of prom, secretly inquiring, will she say more? WILL SHE SAY MORE? There’s a hushed whisper. But, at last, Lexy is far too mysterious and remains silence, thus leaving a trail of intrigue behind her...*

Today was the last day of high school classes. EVER. It was weird. Like, WHAT THE HECK?? I’m actually... DONE HIGH SCHOOL CLASSSES?! FOREVER? WHATTTTT?! Picture me freaking out, by myself, in the bathroom. Yup, that happened. I feel like I’m pregnant. Emphasis on “feel like.” Note to all those damn tabloids dissecting my blog - I AM NOT (leave me alone! I just want to be human!). I just FEEL pregnant. In that, you know, I have a whole rollercoaster of emotions. On one hand, I’m overjoyed, shouting “I’m donnnnne!” down the hallways (yup, that happened.) But I’m also freaking out. Like, seriously. One week, right now... I will be DONE my exams. Done high school. Ahhhh.

Oh gosh. I know that it’s only “upwards and onwards” from here but, still. WTFWHYCANTIJUSTBEAUNNICORN.

Wish me gumballs of good luck on my examinations that mean nothing to me or my future. (But, I’m a total nerd and I’ll be a little blue if my mark descends.) I’m currently in complete denial of exams. Like, I have a World History and English exam tomorrow? Pfft. Today, we had a review class in Advanced Functions. I knew nothing. I’m not even stressed. At this point, exams are some annual senior practical joke that aren’t actually happening. Yup, it’s a problem.

Going off to force myself to study things I don’t care about. Later.

Dreams make me happy. Exams do not. Therefore, make me happy:
What would be your dream job/ future?

Oh, I'm sending piles of gumballs your way!

And my god, a mcdonals themed character skirt??? how does that even exist?!

Chic on the Cheap

Your outfits inspire me to let our my inner self who believes more is more. I love it. And my dream job/future would absolutely be living in Manhattan and (eventually) working as editor-in-chief of a fashion/style/culture magazine that I really love and believe in. But the journey of getting to the editor-in-chief spot is what I'm truly excited for.

And when I say our, I mean out. :)

ronan said...

Anna said...

I LOVE THOSE GLOVES! :) Great outfits!

My dream job, no doubt, is living in London and working for the indie music magazine NME or working for BBC news. As long as I get to be a journalist :)

Ali said...

your skirt has MCDONALDS on it! that's amazing.
uhhm I'm a 'grown up' now so I should probably be in my dream job or something. but it would be running an online fashion business and having lots of time to spend with family and friends. and be able to live in lots of different places.

laura said...

YAY YOU'RE NO LONGER A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT! Surreal huh? It still hasn't really hit me that I'm a college student, weird! What are your plans for after high school?

My dream job...hmm toughie! I mean I love helping people, that's why I chose to study psychology in college! I can easily see myself being a therapist/psychologist. At the same time, I love fashion, always have always will and that's why I'm also studying media studies. I WANT IT ALL, is that asking for so much? teehee, I hope I figure it out soon, but for now I'm pursuing everything!

Looking cute as always lexi, you always make my day with your posts!


olivias-pizzaz said...

You are amazing! I love the vibrant colours, I'm sure you always brighten someones day!! hmmm dream job working as an editorial stylist!!

Congrats on finishing High School and good luck for your exams! (Exams suck. They should be abolished - we should just get a massive certificate with a smiley face when we leave High School / University)

I love your gloves/ hat - seriously you made it?! You have mad skillz.

Ideal job - working as a top restaurant critic/film critic. Or editor of some cool magazine I love. Ah dreams...

Thanks for your comment!

Bonnie said...

That kind of alliteration makes me hot. (Hello, English nerd!) Bahahahaha. You're such a dude magnet.

Dream job: Professional blogger so I could talk to awesome people like you all day long and get paid for it.

I am SOSOSOSOSOSOSO in love with those friggin' gloves. Seriously. I would totes steal them from your closet if I could. Because that's what friends do.

I cannot get over how well you mix prints and colour. Also, I'm in love with your gloves and necklace. Can I rob you?

Dominique B. said...

wow! i love all the colors in this outfit! so fun and chic!!! and i'm just wondering, where do you take your photos? is that a forest? haha it makes all your photos look so amazing! I wish there were that much trees where i live! hehe

Eli said...

a McDonalds skirt?!?! you just blew my mind away!!

Be said...

Is that your backyard?! If it is I'm seriously jealous because it's *awesome*.
I love your gloves and your little anecdote (sorry, just had English). I also admire your cheeriness, even when you're explaning your bathroom happiness (I'm spelling "happiness" wrong aren't I? One "P" or two? This is going to annoy me).
Anywho, to answer the question: I want to become and author and move to a coastal town to live all by myself, get a huge shaggy dog and call it Padfoot and then I want to get a part-time job working at EA Games, and perhaps I'll join a chess club. Yes. I know, I'm a nerd. But I LOVE it :D

Angelica Ng said...

Ew, exams. Yes, I've got one important one coming up that I will study for....sometime. Haha! No, I will get on it. I feel the exact same about high school. I'm so excited its done, but it's starting to dawn on me that I'M DONE. All my friends...will never see them again. My school...will never walk through the hallways again. Wow, now it's kind of depressing. I must say, this outfit is somewhat a bit crazier than the usual, but it's totally awesome! Mixing print at its best.


Llara is the Little Scribbler said...

Uh, clearly they are the best. Your blog's hilarious. I imagine you must talk a million miles an hour ALL the time!
