Ron's Auto

Haha! Never on Selective Potential would I thought I'd have a post titled, "Ron's Auto". As much as I plan my posts out, sometimes Brett and I just run out and find the closest spot to snap some pictures. Today, you get Ron's. We were laughing because I didn't at all plan that my top would match this wall. It's just second nature to match my surroundings now, I guess!



Holy moly, it has taken me a million hours to get this far in this post. I'm not a fan of new Blogger! Ew, ew, ew. I've put it off and now it's being forced upon me. I'm such a creature of habit and have a hard time with change. As most of you know (who follow me on Twitter) I'm having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to living here! I miss our small town and keep reliving the memories we've had there in my head over and over. I know life is great here and will get better, but I'm still adjusting and it's tough!



Other than that though, life is pretty peachy. Get it, peachy? Anyway, it's April! How exciting. That means snow (knocks on wood) is behind us and we're moving onto April showers and... summer (since we've already gotten our May flowers)! Plans for April... hmm... lots of Circle Maybe shows, Easter, my Dad's birthday, hopefully lots of use of my new umbrella and beating Earthbound (A Super Nintendo game from 1994 that I beat every spring, it's tradition, it's my favorite video game ever.)



It's a little funny how I run a style blog and never really talk about my outfits. This outfit kind of embodies everything I like right now. Top knots, ankle jeans, sheer tops, bandeaus, big glasses, floral wedges and giant rings. Hyup! I love spring style!



Outfit details:
Forever 21 top
Gap jeans
Francesca's Collections lace bandeau
Forever 21 ring
Urban Outfitters glasses
Fine furnishings wedge c/o ModCloth

  1. I love the girliness of the shoes contrasted with the grunginess of an auto shop! You look gorgeous, girl :) I hope things start looking up for you soon. I know you're still adjusting, but GR is happy to have you :)

  3. So, I have to have these wedges. I can't find them on Modcloth's site. This makes me so sad. But, you look adorable, as usual! I just love Spring, too! I mean I love the leaves in Fall, but there's nothing like the peachy keen colors and floral prints of early Spring!

Good luck with settling in, no doubt the warmer weather will make your place more like home as friends visit for fun times.

  20. I love the outfit! And the photos! I love topknots too but for me they work out 50% of the time and they look like nothing the other 50% of the time.

    I have my eye on a few auto shops around town, so it might be a thing. Haha.

  26. I love this outfit Tieka, very urban in a way! I'm all about top knots and see through tops these days as well, I'm feeling you!

    I hope you get used to the new blogger super fast and then it's like nothing ever changed. And the beach town is always a short ride away sweet girl :)

    Sending you positive change vibes!

  27. So cute! Give GR some more time, you know it will grow on you! I went to GVSU and even though I live on the East Coast now, GR is still one of my favorite cities. Founder's, HopCat, Brick Road, Wealthy Theatre, there are so many tasty restaurants and fun things to do!

    Love this outfit, too. I almost thrifted a shirt like this, but unfortunately it was about three sizes too big :( You look lovely as always!

  28. Yuck! I don't like the new blogger either.
    Why do they always have to change things?
    Just like Facebook.

  32. I am obsessed with this outfit and your hair and how you're being scandalous with a sheer top, love it! I love looking like a hooker with no tank under my sheer tops. Glad you're open to it as well! Missss youuuu!

  33. Ooooh I love this outfit!! Sorry you're having a hard time adjusting :( I'm sure things will get better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Aw I'm sure things will get better, I know what you mean though. It's hard leaving all those familiar memories behind. I reallyyy like your glasses. I was thinking of buying the same pair but felt like light reflected off of the lenses too much. Maybe I'll give it a second thought ;)

  36. Ah you look so pretty! I bought a sheer top awhile back because you rock them so well and I wanted to try it out. I tried it with just a bra and whoa, cannot commit. Need a pretty bandeau like yours! Loving the top knot too, my hairs are barely there hehe :) Hope you are having a great Spring on your side of the state!

  37. You are so precious! I love the Ron's Auto in the back of your picture, I think it's hilarious. I hope Ron makes a comment and thanks you for your free publicity.

    Love you!

  44. I love this outfit! This has to be one of my favs =). It has such an edgy city vibe but still sweet and feminine at the same time. Top buns are seriously the hardest thing for me to figure out. My hair is so layered I can never get my hair to all fit inside the bun, it just ends up looking like a mess but yours looks perfect and smooth. Perfect hair bun and outfit!

  58. Oh my goodness. I knew I loved your blog for a reason! Earthbound is one of my best childhood memories. My boyfriend and I played it a few years ago, and I need to bring it back!!! You have inspired me. Also, I have shown my boyfriend your blog because we like a lot of the same bands (especially Lemuria). Also, this outfit is really cute.
    Anywhooo...I will stop rambling now!

  72. I think one of the things that makes your blog interesting, aside from your beautiful sense of style, is that you talk about more than just fashion. It's enchanting to read a fashion blog that is more just about life, and kind of endearing.
    You look so cute!

  73. No matter how tough life is for you, you are an inspiration for many fashion freaks undoubtedly. I loved the peach top and the black bustier jutting out from it. It’s looking extremely sexy and appealing. The floral printed shoes are very girlish and are going very well with the entire outfit. Loved the fitting of the jeans. Overall, thumps up to your style and attitude.
