So, in my mind this outfit was a lot less frumpy (and, let's face it, I basically just really wanted to wear this outfit again but tried to be creative about it), but now suddenly I feel a little like grandma. Probably doesn't help that I found a grey hair today. Whatever, I still like it, frump and all.
(jumper: hand-me-down; blouse/hat: thrifted; socks: uo; shoes: kohl's; necklace: diy)
And thus we conclude "florals week" (even though I looked at the leftover florals in my closet this morning and briefly considered extending it...) Next up? Stripes!
After work I am going to go read in the park for a few hours until it is time to meet up with some gal pals for Mexican food, annnnnd then it's supposed to rain for the rest of the weekend. I hope the forecast is wrong because there are still some seriously summery activities that I want to do RIGHT NOW (sushi en plein air, drive-in movie, bike rides...) and I won't tolerate this "showers" business.
In other news, as I was typing this I started thinking about summer vacation and how strange it was that colleges let out a full month ahead of high school and why is that? And then I was visited by a twinge of nostalgia for my dear old college days and the excitement of picking classes and learning (sometimes) and living on my own and singing with the Sweethearts and playing beer pong and ordering pizza at 4 am and those things that were so new (like going to the grocery store) and made me feel so independent (and now just make me feel annoyed). Sometimes I get really bummed out that there are times in my life that have passed, never to be experienced again, and places I have been (both physically and emotionally) that I can never really return to. One of the worst feelings is going back to a place you once loved, expecting it to be the same, and feeling differently about it. I don't really know where all this is coming from (maybe it's that grey hair reminding me that time keeps marching on). Welcome to the inside of my mind :)
Where do you go when you get nostalgic? I'd love to hear some of your happy memories!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
