Daily Outfit 3

Today is another day of graduation parties, including one at the beach! I'll obviously be changing later on, but right now I'm channeling my inner Farah Fawcett with these super-comfy wide leg jeans I bought from Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago.

Jeans Urban Outfitters
Purse Vintage

I hope the weather holds up for everyone today. These "scattered t-storms" are sort of messing with my summer so far.

Graperange Study

I realize this is nothing special, just a quick study of a grapefruit/orange (I'm still not sure what it was...the coloring was of an orange, but the size of a grapefruit). After hours and hours of watching television in bed, I became quite bored and decided to paint for the first time since that dreadful class called AP Studio Art. Man, it felt so good to paint again. The world of art is completely endless; you can do literally whatever you want with watercolors, oil pastels, and any other medium you choose.

I started a study of a few rhubarb stalks after this, but then I got hungry.

Hold on!

I caught strep throat yesterday, and just got my Mac-baby back from the Genius Lab early this evening.

Basically, I'm still under the weather and trying to figure out how the hell to use this thing.

Please bare with me as I learn! :) If any of you have any helpful information about Macs, please leave a comment. I've been watching Apple's video tutorials on repeat!

Daily Outfit 2

Graduate of the Class of '08! It felt so good to receive that diploma, even though it was a bit small.

And...I got a Macbook! It's currently humming away whilst loading all of its software. I can't wait to start using it; it was truly love at first sight.

Daily Outfit 1

My grandparents are coming to visit today for my graduation tomorrow! Should be exciting to see their reaction to the new tattoo...

Shirt Park Vogel (organic cotton)
Dress F21
Necklace Vintage
Shoes Target

P.S. I know what you're thinking: "Kayla, is that the only dress you own?" But it just happens to be a coincidence that this is the last dress I posted on my old blog. Please be aware that I am a dress fiend, and this is not my single one :)

A New Beginning

Photo by loligense

Hello, blogworld!

A lot has changed in my life recently: I turned eighteen, found out I would be studying in Florence, Italy this coming school year, and dyed my hair back to its original color.

I wanted to start a blog (my third attempt: previously, The Sewing Bunny Wordpress and Blogspot) where I could really express every aspect of my life. This includes my love of fashion, style, vintage, the environment, baking, cooking, crafting, and spreading the word about new things I discover. I decided on the name "My Polychrome Life" because it perfectly describes this multi-faceted life I love to lead.

To the right of this post, you can find an ever-changing list of blogs that have continuously inspired me. If you are new to the blogging world, please have a look! If you would like to share your blog with me, please post a comment.
