Getting There Is Getting By

IMG_6629edit


Hello there! So, I am almost literally on my way out the door as I write this post. Today has been a pretty easygoing Friday. I went for a jog at the track this morning, which was WONDERFUL. There was this cool breeze blowing the whole time I jogged (about 2 1/4 mile with a few walking breaks) and afterwards I collapsed in this soft patch of grass right next to the track. Quite a nice start to the day! Unfortunately, such a nice start to the day led me to having a lazy rest of the morning. I was hoping to get some serious work done on my final project, but I really just got one paragraph/page done. Whoops. It's a start...right? Eh. It's hard to do work on Fridays! Anyway, in a little bit I'll be heading over to Zak's since his brothers are having their family birthday party tonight. I look forward to some running away from the party to the little park near his house and returning for cake later. Hooray!

So, this is what I wore to school yesterday. I was actually really lucky that I was able to snap these shots just before the sky opened up and unleashed all of its fury in the form of rain. I picked up this lace blouse at H&M over the weekend and look forward to wearing it cardigan-less once the weather warms up (and I tone my chub arms?)

Blouse: H&M
Cardigan: Zara
Skirt, shoes: Urban Outfitters

  2. eeeeek all these colors look so perfect together! I love the blouse..very pretty. And that skirt is super. P.S. remember that post where I said I hated you because you had that light blue, floral, Peter Pan collared, Forever 21 dress?? I found it in my Forever 21 and I totally copied you and bought it. =x

  4. I love this outfit (partially because you're wearing my college colors)! I really want a lace top but I haven't found one that fits quite right yet. Have a fun afternoon and good luck on your final! I'm supposed to be studying but I'm very distracted by the Royal Wedding still.

  16. Lovely red skirt. I love the contrast between the red and white lace.

    Oh, I have a good way to tone arms. You know how you swing your arms while running? Carry some lightweight dumbells while running. It helps!
