the 4th of July

//skirt: made by me / vintage petticoat: thrifted / shirt, shoes, belt: thrifted / earrings: gift//

Hello, everyone! Long time, no see! I have been far too busy, as you may be able to tell by the title of this post...these pictures are from over a week ago, and I've only just now had the time to edit them and create a post! I have also had little time to read and catch up on the blogs I love, which makes me sad. Thankfully I was able to work ahead yesterday, and now today should be wonderfully relaxed, so maybe I can have some time to catch up and comment on all the wonderful posts I'm sure to have missed. I'm also hoping to spend some more time on my poor, much neglected blog.

Anyway! I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful Fourth of July! I certainly did! I spent most of the morning  and afternoon composing an essay that had to be turned in before 9:00 that night, then I hastily ironed this skirt so that I would have something to wear to my family's party. I ended up finishing a little late, but I was still able to make it to the party in time for the barbecue! The night was spent chatting with family, giggling with friends, eating good food, and watching my uncles and their friends light off fireworks. All in all, a wonderful night.

What did you do for the Fourth?
