We've Got Everything

I wore a very formulaic outfit yesterday. But I liked all of the pieces that made it up, so I don't particularly care. Oregon is still being indecisive about weather, so I would have liked to wear shorter ankle socks as I had originally planned with this outfit, but I would have been one sad cold girl if I had. So it was knee highs again. Because I'm so so sick of having tights sucking me in up to the ribs.

It's a tiny bit random, but I had a sudden realization that I'm really happy right now. I'm surrounded by people that I really like, who I trust and that I'm friends with, I'm studying something that makes me happy and I have a lot more free time than I ever used to (though that's still not a ton). Three more weeks of classes! And then Robert will be graduating in a month. Then no more long distance :D



I look really funny in this photo and thought you should be able to look at it. I am squatting down to look in the water, but it sort of looks like I am trying to communicate the concept of constipation--charades style. I think it is quite silly.







dress: H&M
cardigan: thrifted
socks: H&M
loafers: Cole Han, thrifted
necklace: gifted


And I talk about her enough so that most of you should know that Sarah of Just Take a Bow and I are good real life friends. We've been friends since freshman year of high school--so about seven years now. We were the colorguard/winterguard captains of our high school together (for those of you who know what that is) and are now thrifting/blog partners in crime. We've been planning on doing a clothing swap or something similar soon.

I think she has, but I've never posted photos of us together. So here you go:



This is what happens when she says we should try model poses. I just look like a dancer. Which is my background. So that's not really much fun.

  1. This is such a fun, heartwarming post. :) Your words and pictures definitely convey the happiness that you have right now :) I love it! I do think it's amazing when things fall into the right place and you realize that everything's working out splendidly. When things get super busy and hectic, it's one of those realizations that keeps me from going crazy. xD

    I love the outfit too, by the way! I swear I need your dress collection in my closet.

  2. That dress is to die for. I love polka dots!

    I'm so glad you're happy. There is nothing more to wish for than happiness, I think. I'm just REALLY glad that this week is my last week of high school. :DDDDDDDDDD

    (Oh, I study Multimedia Design. In the end of the course I'll have to choose between graphic design, web design and audiovisuals. I'm going to choose audiovisuals. I love cinema so much and I really want to be a film producer and editor. So, I'm not really a film student but almost ahah).

  23. AW. Isn't that theeeeeee best. When you're just like, "Wow. I'm happy." It's such a simple concept - but really all we need!

    That "constipation" (YOUR WORDS NOT MINE) picture made me laugh! You two are far too cute xx.
