Colliding With The Very Air She Breaths

Well, thank goodness it's Friday indeed! I can't say that I'm sad to see this week go. It's been an emotionally draining one for various reasons, most of which I'm not even sure of. I should have spent today writing a paper but my mind just wouldn't stop running to other places, and I was reluctant to stop it. All in all, not such a good time to write a paper, unfortunately. So I've just spent today putting together outfits and melodramatically jamming out to Africa by Toto (one of my feel good songs, seriously, it's wonderful). I actually put together an entirely different outfit earlier, took pictures, and was disappointed. Something just wasn't coming together (it may be my hair? I haven't figured it out yet). Basically, though, I wanted to look cute and pretty today and my first outfit felt edgier and more casual than what I really wanted, and it frankly made me a bit self conscious. So, I changed a few pieces around and was quite happy with the outcome. Now, though, I should PROBABLY go catch my wandering mind for long enough to do part of this paper, as I have two to get done this weekend. HOORAY, end of the semester workload!

Dress: Salvation Army
Sweater: Zara
Socks: Delia's
Shoes: Minnetonka

Have a great weekend!



  1. i LOVE this outfit--you look so pretty! good luck with the paper-writing :)

  2. You know what's funny? Before I read your post I was looking at the pictures thinking, her hair looks really nice today! And then I read your post and it seems you weren't too happy with it. Isn't it strange how we might think something doesn't look right and then other people see it and they have a completely different perspective? This is a very cute outfit also! Good luck on your papers, I have several to do myself and just am not feeling motivated to do ANY of them, boooo.

  3. You're socks are darling. I love the detail and the color. xo
