Hello dear readers! I have been meaning to write a post for some time now but I haven’t gotten around to it; that must have been fate because today I get to bring you a completely different post that will much better illustrate a very important milestone in my blogging career: my 100th post!

Yay! 100 seems like such a big number at first but it really isn’t when you think about how many posts a professional blogger must have. Anyway…

My school started a new tradition this year; other schools have done it but it’s the first time I’ve heard of or seen such a thing. As seniors we get to decorate senior crowns and we’re supposed to wear them to special events (like tonight’s Homecoming game, for example).

I’m usually not one to flaunt my superiority (“Look at me! I’m a senior and therefore better than you! I shall illustrate my superiority with a crown!”) but I could not pass up the opportunity to personalize an accessory so full of potential. Plus, since they’re a new thing at my school, the crowns don’t have that much significance yet.

And now, my crown!!!!

Now, it was not officially a creativity contest, but I secretly took it upon myself to make a crown that would stand out. I figured the best way to do that would be to alter the structure by building on the crown- and a unicorn horn was the obvious way to go.

I’m starting to make “Allie the unicorn” a bigger part of my identity now (as in, more than just my blog domain) and I thought this was a nice way to do so.

Besides the horn (which was just rolled-up paper hot glued on), my crown stood out as one of the few that were not black, purple, or silver (our school colors).

I will gladly wear it again. And since I forgot to write “senior” or “2014” on it, I can wear it long after my senior year is done!

Did you make a senior crown? How did it look?

We have all been in clubs that require us to wear our club t-shirts to every meeting. As a member of several clubs at school, I find myself having to wear these shirts at least once a week. And as someone with an interest in fashion, I sometimes feel like I wear club t-shirts so often that it takes away from the time that I get to wear my more preferred pieces.

So I decided to start styling club-shirts as regular t-shirts. That may seem like a no-brainer at first, but keep in mind that club shirts are often much bulkier than the average tee and don’t always have a cute design or the ability to be cut into a crop top.

My first and most basic tip when styling club t-shirts is to remember that YOU HAVE MORE OPTIONS TO PAIR THEM WITH THAN JEANS! Tuck it into a skirt! Pick some shorts that coordinate with the design!

Here you’ll see that I paired my NHS shirt with some tuxedo pants:

The black shirt goes with the black stripe on the pants. The dark colors make the outfit chic, where jeans would have been boring and blah.

Luckily the NHS shirt is pretty classy, so it looks like it could be any shirt with a random design on it.

Keep it classy,
