Neutral at Heart

outfit details – cardigan: H&M // dress & belt: Xhileration (buy dress here) // necklace: made by me! // watch: Timex x Disney // bracelet: someone in one of my high school ceramic teacher’s classes lost it so he let me have it // shoes: Blowfish // glasses: Brooks Brothers (buy here)

Green and pink are one of my most favorite color combinations… and I’m totally sensing deja vu after typing that because I feel like I might have written this before on a previous post…? If so, oh well. It’s worth mentioning again because it’s pretty damn spiffy! I remember the color duo first catching my eye from Sailor Jupiter,Β my favorite Sailor Scout! I was into Sailor Moon quite a bit in 5th grade, but getting up at 5am to watch it became a gruesome task and I just kind of fell to the wayside from the bandwagon. I’m definitely curious to see how the reboot’s going to turn out though!

And speaking of reboots, I’m attempting to reboot a few things in my own life. I gained even more weight last month due to eating all my feels after my grandpa passed away, so I’ve been trying to kick my ass into shape by either walking Rory, hula hooping for 15 minutes, or doing Jillian Michael’s yoga workout. I’m also going to be changing up my Etsy store by adding new types of necklaces, and I even changed its name. So Once Upon a Smorgasbord will now be known as Le Fancy Geek Boutique. I really liked the name Once Upon a Smorgasbord; I feel that it really fit in with my design aesthetic as I like to experiment with different kinds of materials, plus it contained an excellent vocab word! But when it comes down to it, it’s an awkward name and hard to remember. Le Fancy Geek Boutique has a nice ring to it and it ties in with my blog quite nicely too. I’ll be sure to make an announcement on here once the store is up and running again. πŸ™‚

Oh, and I’m getting a haircut tomorrow! My hair is now past my bra line, and at first I was like, “Ooh, my hair is hella long. This is fantastic!” But it takes even longer than usual to dry my hair and my bangs are at that stage where a pro needs to step in and fix it. You can really tell in these photos too. Ack! I’m not doing anything drastic though (like cutting my hair at shoulder length like I did a couple years ago as seen here), I’m just getting 2 or 3 inches off.

Are any of you making any big or little changes in your life? And if you know of any good workout DVDs, let me know in the comments! πŸ˜€

Cheers,
Nina

  1. Cute look! Please take a look and follow my style blog! charnellegeraldine.wordpress.com πŸ™‚

    Cute fit πŸ™‚ I need to get back into workout mode too. Ryan and I are doing a 31 day squat challenge (via Pinterest). We’re on Day 6 today! There was also a 30 day plank challenge (also via Pinterest) that I have yet to start.

  3. Try Jillian Micheal’s 30 day shred. I like that they are just 20 minutes long but cover cardio and strength training interval style.

  4. Very pretty outfit, I love it!

  5. Your blog is adorable!!! Let me know when you come to SF!

  6. I can’t wait to check out your shop after it’s re-boot. I loved the original name, but I think you’re right, Le Fancy Geek Boutique has a great ring to it.

  7. Omg. You are so beautiful. That necklace is so rad as well.
