I could never look into your eyes, and settle for wrong and ignore the right

Yesterday I bought Adele's new album, both because I love the sound of her voice and because I was in a music funk and needed a break from all the Anberlin I've been listening to lately. I get really obsessive when I find a new song I like. I play it over and over and over again, and after awhile I start creating music videos and choreographing new dances and complicated ice skating routines in my head. Some songs I even imagine myself performing on stage. Adele's new song, I Found a Boy, is this song for me at the moment. I think I've probably listened to it about 55 times since I downloaded it last night. It's a mellow ballad about moving on to greener pastures and rejecting past unhappiness. It's put me in kind of a mellow mood all day, which I feel is reflected by the muted colors in today's photos.

But yes, I can be introspective while wearing a hot pink hat.

I can't even remember the last time I wore actual jeans

Last year I wore skirts and dresses. This year I discovered the beauty and comfort of jeggings. I have never really been a "jeans and a t-shirt" girl (and am probably not going to start now) but every once in awhile I pull my one pair of jeans out of my closet, give them a good shake to get all the dust off, and style an outfit around them. Thoughts on this one?
Gap jeans; Blake Scott shoes; VS tank; blazer from a random store in Paris (remixed); Santa socks from my Aunt Deb; necklace of questionable origin

How to organize your jewelry

Step 1: Go to Goodwill; find a gorgeous bowl/tray; buy it for $3
Step 2: Clean it thoroughly; fill it with jewelry
Aaaaand there you go! This works for me because I have a pretty meager jewelry collection at school. If you have a huge, obscene collection of baubles it may be prudent for you to invest in multiple bowls/trays.

Valentine's Day Flowers

Sorry that I never update anymore. I'm thinking of transitioning Adelaide Stayed into more of a photography blog, rather than a fashion blog. I think I may enjoy being behind the lens more than being in front of it. But we'll see :)
Anyways, here are some photos of the beautiful bouquet my parents sent me for Valentine's Day. The flowers are so beautiful I don't even mind that they were delivered two days late.

And look at my awesome signature!!!! It means I'm a real photographer. Alert the press!!
