Hello! So, yesterday was super lazy, since I had a whole bunch of Iliad to read, among other things. But on Saturday, Zak and I decided to head out and play some mini golf (one of our most favorite things). In Cape Cod, Zak and his family play a whole lot, and I mean a WHOLE lot of mini golf, and they get super duper competitive about it (there was a scoresheet and bonus points...) but Zak and I aren't so into the competitiveness. So, we played two games and only kept score for one, and we really had a good time! So much so that I don't even mind that I very obviously lost, even when we weren't keeping score :)

Dress: Urban Outfitters, Sweater: H&M, Belt: Target, Knee Socks: ?, Moccasins: Minnetonka, Necklace: JCPenney

So, I finally decided to try out the knee socks trend! I've been tentative to do so, despite seeing many lovely bloggers wearing them well. This is in part because I went to Catholic school for 13 years and had to wear knee socks all the time. Honestly, though, I remember cleaning out my sock drawer after I graduated, getting rid of a bunch of navy and maroon tights and knee socks, and being kind of sad to let go of wearing knee socks. So, when I was getting dressed on Saturday I was searching for a pair of navy tights to wear, but I couldn't find any. I did, however, come across my lovely navy knee socks, and once I put them on I knew I had to wear them. I really thought I would feel self-conscious wearing them, but I was actually really comfortable and happy with my outfit.

So, I'm in a bit of a tizzy because of my poetry assignment this week (to write a poem with vivid, concrete imagery and not a lot of feeling WHAT?). It's frustrating to have the allotted time to do work, but to not have an idea to write about. OOF! I'm also in a bit of a tizzy due to a dream I had this morning. I guess that's what I get for hitting snooze eighteen times. I had just shut my alarm, convinced I would get up in a minute, when I fell alseep and had a dream that made me miss people I had already been missing and become concerned over relationships I've already been concerned with. Oh, goodness.

Well, I hope you all had lovely weekends and are not in any sort of tizzies!

Until tomorrow,


  1. I went to a private school and we also had to wear knee socks or tights with our skirts. Oh the days! But you certainly pull of this look well.

  2. I'm glad you were able to have so much fun! :)
    Best of luck with the assignment.. and the dream too.

  3. Love the blue and yellow together, very pretty!

  4. great colors here! your outfit reminds me so much of this one of mine:

    i love blue and yellow together, like sun and sky!

    good luck with the poetry--that's why i could never take a poetry class. in my opinion, it's not something that can be forced into a box like that!

  5. oh man i am horrible at mini golf. haha..
    i am excited for the cooler weather to wear knee highs!!
    but today and tomorrow it is suppose to be in the 90's..
    what in the world!?!?

    you look beautiful. i love that yellow.


  6. oh i just LOVE this outfit. I love the socks with the moccasins and the color combination!
    I hope all your tizzies get sorted out!

  7. I so need to get some knee socks; every blogger I've seen wearing them looks so nice in them! I think they make an outfit look more polished, somehow, lol. This is a very cute Autumn transition outfit, and I think blue and yellow always look great together.

  8. aww i need to try out this trend too :) you look amazing and mini-golfing sounds so cute and fun!

  9. sweet outfit! you look so lovely, and i want your belt! check my new post :):)

  10. My favorite outfit to wear with knee socks is primary blue like this, and I my knee socks are blue with a yellow stripe at the top. Needless to say I love this outfit! Good luck with the concrete poem :)

  11. this dress is so perfect! I love how you style it everytime! The yellow is so, so cute. It really makes the color pop! And I can't forget about the socks...adorableee!

    I'm glad you loved NYFW:)
