I Would Break Into Blossom
Suddenly I realize that if I stepped out of my body I would break into blossom. - from "A Blessing" by James Wright
Hello there! So, today is my longest day of the week, since I have class from nine thirty in the morning to nine at night. I decided to come home in between classes, though, in an attempt to nap (didn't do that) and get some work done (REALLY didn't do that). Anyway, I decided to go the relatively comfy route by wearing a not too complicated outfit once again. I'm actually wearing two dresses in these photos because I'm ridiculous. I've worn the blue dress with a brown floral button up underneath once before, and I really liked the floral on floral action (that sounds terrible). So, I had a brown floral dress and decided to try to layer it underneath the blue dress, as you can see, and I think it turned out alright. Also, when I saw how much floral I was wearing I couldn't help but think of that line from James Wright's poem "The Blessing." It's quite a delightful, and at times peculiar, poem, and I suggest you guys check it out if you have the time!
