Embarrassingly enough, I used to upload videos of myself singing and playing my ukulele to Facebook all the time. Even more embarrassing is the fact that I just uploaded one to my this blog. However, I've been feeling all the feels lately thanks to the approaching end of my college career and the fact that I'm probably about to leave Kentucky for a very long time, and singing always somehow helps me feel a little bit better about life. I associate this song with so many fun nights and amazing friends, so I felt it was an appropriate one to play. I apologize for the very rough start in the beginning of the video; hopefully you can kindly ignore that part and enjoy the rest.
Between the possibility of soon moving to New York and the fact that I got a new laptop after a year of struggling with a dying one, I've been feeling more inspired than normal lately. There's really nothing like the thrill of opportunity. The joy of not having to wait for a computer that freezes (or dies) every two seconds doesn't hurt either. I decided to channel my happiness into my style on this beautiful morning, and threw on all the flared items in my closet (which were few, as you can see). I might look somber in my completely black outfit, but if you look closely enough, you can see that I'm not completely depressed. I'm still happy enough to wear two flared pieces and platform oxfords—that has to count for something, right?

After months of contemplation (and serious procrastination), I've decided to bring back The Wandering Soul. Stay tuned for more—and hopefully improved—posts in the near future :)
I've been very pleasantly surprised by the amount of style that UK students are showing this fall, and it seems to be steadily increasing with each passing day. While great outfits last year were sadly few and far between, this year I've frequently found myself inspired by many an outfit on campus, and I've actually started to look forward to going to class just to see the variety of styles that campus seems to be overflowing with. Case in point: this fabulous lady. Fellow merchandising major, founder and editor-in-chief of Lone Cats (a brand new student run fashion magazine) and my new partner in crime, Madison Elder wins best dressed in my book every single day. She has an innate sense of effortless chic that enables her to look put together, perfectly disheveled, and ridiculously comfortable at all times, which happens to be the exact look I've been striving for (quite unsuccessfully) my entire life. Unfortunately I will probably never master this look, which only leaves me even more awestruck at her sartorial capabilities and never-ending creativity. So if this blog slowly begins to turn into a documentation of Madi's daily outfits, don't be surprised—I just can't help myself. I'm sure you can see why.
Labor Day recently passed, which means the start of fall as well as the time when all the boring people of the world inevitably feel the need to provide snide commentary on the fashion choices of every white-wearer they see. I tend to see this as a challenge, so when September rolls around every year I promptly break out all of my white and let the haters start hatin'. With a pair of perfect white Theory pants and the world's most beautiful blue Zara sweatshirt on my side, there's really no challenge I can't win.
