Back-to-School Style: Laura Coleman

While on the road touring, the Coleman's were one of the gracious families who hosted the Chasing Lovely team while we were in the Midwest. I've known Laura's sister, Stephanie, since middle school, and this summer I was able to get to know her younger sister on a whole new level... and I am so thankful I did!

Black leather vest: H&M - Tribal dress: American Eagle Outfitters

Throughout our stay, we spent hours chatting about everything. We got along so well since we're both complete weirdos and have the same sense of humor. We laughed together, cried together, danced like fools together... I had no clue such deep friendships could form in that short amount of time.

Late nights consisted of Redbox-ing the scariest horror movies we could find, which made it impossible to sleep, so we followed them up with a classic Ryan Gosling/Channing Tatum flick. We also bonded over our love of the MTV hit series Teen Wolf. Derek and Stiles, anyone? ;)

Combat boots: Famous Footwear

Not only is Laura hilarious and fun, this gorgeous girl has got STYLE. We had a blast picking out back-to-school outfits together, even if it looked like a hurricane of clothes swept through her room (we cleaned up after ourselves, I swear!). 

Denim top: American Eagle Outfitters - Floral Dress: Aerie

It seemed only appropriate to conduct her interview in the best way we know how: sprawled out on a couch together with a plate of piping hot chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven ;)

Greatest fear:

2. End of the world movies... 
3. and if someone touches my bellybutton. Like, no.

So tell us about this Harry Potter obsession...
*sits forward and folds hands in excitement*
I can't even start with this! I have an action figure collection if that counts for anything. I read all the books. Multiple times. I have all the movies of course...and posters, a wand, the Time Turner, Marauders Map, Harry Potter pins, and scarves. 

So who's your favorite character? Or...creature? 
Character: Luna Lovegood or Dean Thomas (cuz let's be real here..!) 
Creature: Not Nargles cos those are terrifying! But Buckbeak...I mean, HELLO... if I were a hippogriff, he would be my love. Oh, and I can't forget Norbert!

Do you have a favorite rom-com?
Laura: Is "School of Rock" a rom-com? (silence...) Don't judge me guys! Why are you laughing?!?!
Taylor: is there a love story in there? 
Laura: Wait, is that what a rom-com is? I'm gonna fix this guys, I'll be back!! Hold on.

Exits room. We wait a minute. Laura returns.

Laura: The Holiday.

When people mix up "a" with "an" or vice versa. They'll say, "A elephant" and I'm like, "No, AN elephant!! AN elephant!!"

Potatoes. Don't judge. They're freaking amazing. I'm Irish, so...mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes...baked potatoes...I like potatoes. Haha.

Don't wear Aeropostale. Haha. Honestly, just be yourself...but don't do anything too wickwack!
