(I realized when I was choosing photos that in almost all of them, I was somehow fondling this hat. But that's okay, it is cute and makes me feel like a child)

It actually took me a long time to get dressed this morning. I was sleepy and being extra picky. I think I only ended up wearing this because I got tired of standing in front of my closet and just threw something on. It's not something I would normally wear. For one, I don't usually wear hats, but I borrowed this one from my roommate because I liked it. Second, I don't usually wear silhouettes like this; usually I stick to high wasted things that are a bit more fitted (or at least belted).

But this outfit happened and I'm not all-together displeased. It sure was comfy, which was nice, since it poured and poured all day long.


beautiful thrifted shoes.


+ one handmade necklace (meaning I bought the strand from the craft store and then made it into a necklace with ribbon) and bow necklace, which was also borrowed from said roommate for the day. I just realized--I wasn't totally happy with my outfit, so I just put on random things that I do like.

  4. It looks perfect together and comfiness is a very important factor when it's chilly and rainy. :)

    For some reason I usually only thrift dresses and I've never found nice shoes before, but you find such pretty ones I wish I had been looking out for them more! :)
