is dress code the problem

dresscode_1

 

With the school year starting, it’s the perfect time to discuss one of our favorite topics, dress code. It’s usually the first complaint you hear about school. After a summer of wearing whatever I wanted, going back to a uniform with dress code reminded me of all the things wrong with it. There are subtle hints of sexism and body shaming. In this blog post, I’m discussing if school dress codes are the problem and what it says about our society. More importantly, I wanted to write about the impact it has on kids/students.

The last post of the short series, part three! You might have already read the first 2, but here is my little spiel and description: We all say we want to help the environment, but that means more than just buying a trendy reusable straw. One of the biggest contributing factors some of the worlds most prominent problems has to do with fashion. As much as it pains me to say, the fashion world is flawed.

the making of a vision board

RO_-7

 

What else is there to do on a summer morning except to make a vision board. I like having order in my life, having a plan, a schedule. I obviously had to be even more planned and organized out, which led me to make a vision board. My sister and I cut things out of fashion magazines that “spoke to us”. What spoke to me were headlines about the women joining Congress. What spoke to my sister were ads for chocolate bars. That doesn’t matter, but we had fun collaging and were able to get through half a season of friends.

my may bullet journal spread, pinterest themed!

may bullet journal.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited for this spread because it was by far my favorite bullet journal spread I’ve ever done. I used Pinterest to find inspiration for these pages after developing a color scheme. The core colors are a few shades of blue, a bright red, a light pink, and grey. I definitely did not keep it minimalistic. After determining that I wanted to make this month extra special, I decided to start early. This took a lot more time than my usual spreads, although if you do want to see those posts, keep reading to the end for all of those links. Enjoy!

Shirt_6

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited about this post! I recently realized how the t-shirts I have. My collection is mainly made up of tourist/gift shop shirts and cute t-shirts. There are also even more categories past those two subcategories, such as cropped, oversized, etc. Instead of styling 1 shirt 5 ways, I wanted to style 5 different t-shirts for a few different styles. Altogether, I was really in the mood for a fashion-styling post. That’s also where the roots of this blog are from, fashion + stuff *woah, i am such a fashionista*. Enjoy!
