Looking In On The Good Life

So, i think I found a new photo spot on my campus! One of my most favorite things about my school is how old everything is. The buildings are all original from when the school was first built (with a few exceptions) and there are all these wonderful little nooks with old stone walls and grassy grounds. I didn't know this little spot existed until today! You go down this dirt and gravel path and then through this little archway and there it is! I felt a little like I was in The Chronicles of Narnia, which is always a good thing.

Yesterday, I was talking about having a case of spring fever, and I think it's only getting worse. It was almost sixty degrees out, and as much as I'm not over winter, it was nice to not be freezing! I felt so strange not wearing a big bulky winter coat! Also, I realize a corduroy skirt is not exactly sixty degree weather clothing, but I just love corduroy so much. And this sudden spring is making me worried that my corduroy days are numbered, so I'm trying to spend as much time with corduroy as I can before we must part.

Polka Dot Top: Delia's
Corduroy Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Gold Belt: Grandma's
Tights: Hue
Necklace: Gift
Shoes: Mom's

Until Tomorrow,
