Where Have All The Cowboys Gone

IMG_5760 2


Hello there! So, today started off a bit...crazy? All but ONE highway leading to my school was closed due to flooding, which led to an adventurous AND successful attempt at getting me to a meeting with my teacher. Though, I was a half hour late. When I spoke with my teacher (who also commutes to the school) he explained that he was also a half hour late to his lecture! Hooray, lateness! Later that day, I got lunch with two of my closest friends from high school. It was really nice to catch up them, since I haven't seen them since the beginning of January. It's always nice to have friends that no matter how long you go without seeing them, you can always pick up the conversation like you hadn't really been apart at all. After lunch, I did a little bit of thrifting. I got a few garments, but I think I may have been most excited about finding one of my favorite childhood VHS's - We Sing The Big Rock Candy Mountain! I can't wait to force Zak to watch it with me over break!

Now, onto this outfit. I have been SO excited to wear this skirt ever since I got it from Buffalo Exchange a few weeks ago. It has COWBOYS and HORSES all over it! I've always wanted a horse print dress from Modcloth, but they were always too expensive for me. So, imagine how much I totally nerded out in the store when I found this skirt for twelve dollars! It's so fun and unique, though I was a bit stumped with how to style it. I think it'll be fun to wear in the warmer months, when I don't have to layer up and wear tights, and I can really just showcase the print of the skirt!

Top: Macy's
Skirt: Buffalo Exchange
Belt, Trench: H&M

  11. I love your skirt!
    Having long time friends you can talk to, even if you were apart for a year like you've seen them yesterday is one of the best feelings, I feel like that with the ones I consider true friends :)
