i speak because i can

My blog has undergone some big changes in the past few days; all outfit pictures are gone. I'm not really sure what I'm doing with my blog and if I even want to keep it anyway because for myself at least, all it does is feed my desire for new things and I'm honestly too shy to take pictures outside or anything, so I'm pretty limited in my creative direction, which is frustrating. I theoretically enjoy an outlet for my thought process, but what's been posted on here is just feeding my materialism so I'm taking a step back. (Well, that coupled with the fact that I have no idea how to dress when it's 85 during the day and 60 at night.) But while I decide what I'm doing with good ol' Color Shows, I thought I might share this delicious recipe.

So, two things that are not my forte: icing cupcakes and taking pictures of cupcakes. I had some time before I left for school and decided to spend it watching Switched at Birth (oh ABC Family, you know my guilty pleasures so well) and making snickerdoodle cupcakes. I've made this recipe before and though I was initially scared by the thick batter, it's one of my favorites. These cupcakes are so soft and delicious!

colored jeans

One trend that I'm really excited to see come back is colored pants. I remember in my freshman and sophomore year I had the most beautiful cobalt blue jeans that I wore with everything, but I finally had to pass them along to a friend (a younger male friend who is now a full foot taller than me, in fact) because they got too small. I have yet to do any serious back-to-school shopping (unless the planner, lipstick, and third book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series that I bought over tax free weekend count) but I'm heading up to Raleigh on Tuesday to see my sister and I plan on going crazy at the H&M.

As far as my life goes, I just have to say that I'm itching to go back to school. I need that mountain air in my lungs! Being home this summer has been nice, but weird, because it no longer feels like my home. More like a waiting period. And I'm done waiting.

My family celebrated Father's Day yesterday because it was my dad's birthday, so what I'm celebrating today is my boyfriend's birthday.

You will probably never read this, but I love you and you are the best. Happy birthday, you and your stupid face.

weekly favorites

Apparently, I'm not so much into color lately. But can you blame me when these adorable, neutral outfits are popping up?

1. Transient Withdrawal - I love the simplicity of this outfit and the lovely accessories. Jasmine's sandals are so cute!

2. HollyDolly - What a great pair of shorts! I love the color combination of this outfit, as well as the great hat.

3. Girl and Closet - The pop of color of Veronika's shoes against the neutral floral dress is wonderful. Another great hat, too!

4. The Clothes Horse - A great dress and a denim jacket is a tried and true pairing that I've been itching to try out myself. I'm all about summery outfits that don't look like you're about to head out on the beach.

Check back for an outfit post tomorrow and some pictures of Niagara Falls!
