neon + floral







//dress, worn as top: thrifted / skirt: thrifted + refashioned / belt: thrifted / necklace: h&m / gladiators: cotton on / nail polish: Julep's popova//

I'm really quite happy with how this outfit turned out. I had been looking for new ways to style this dress (which is one of my most worn dresses, but I don't think I've ever worn it on the blog before), and Saturday night, when pulling out an outfit for church, I happened to pull out this skirt and dress at the same time. And they matched! Or at least I thought they matched. But really, I'm very happy with how they look together. I think that the green of the leaves on the dress works well with the green of the skirt. I belted it for a more fitted look, added my favorite H&M necklace, threw on some gladiators for a more casual look, and I was ready to go.

Anyway, finals are coming up, and I am starting to panic. I have two research papers due, one this weekend, and one next weekend, and while I'm pretty much on top of the one that's due this week, I am starting to worry about the other one, which I haven't started working on at all. The teacher for that class is a pretty hard grader, so I think that's the one I'm more concerned about. He offers the opportunity to submit a draft for critique, and normally I would jump at that chance, but I think I just don't have the time. I'm praying that I do well and accomplish everything on time...without getting too stressed out!

I also want to thank all of you who commented on my previous post! I really appreciate all the positive feedback. I don't think I've ever really done a post like that before, and I hope to do more like that in the future, because I had a lot of fun with it.

Hope you all are having a great week!

    1. Haha, thank you! I just turned in one of two final papers, so I'm basically done with one class, which is a load off my mind. Just one more paper to go! I think this may be my first go at layering dresses and skirts, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!(:

  6. You went through school during the summer? I forgot there were summer classes. I hope your finals go well.

    I like yellow with black, it always looks so nice, and that skirt is very cute.
