• news and other such things •••


//dress, booties: forever21 / necklace: ebay / jacket: JCP / tights: fred meyer / purse: thrifted//

Hello everyone! Long time no see. It's been several weeks since my last post, where I'm pretty sure I said pretty much the same things about busy-ness. Now, my classes are beginning to wrap up--it's finals week! I've also begun going out with a fairly awesome guy from church--after about two months of emailing back and forth, we decided to see a movie together, and then less than a week later, on New Year's Day, we decided to see another movie (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), and he told me that he liked me as more than a friend. We've been together ever since...and it's really nice.

Anyway, this outfit is from a few weeks ago. I picked up the dress and the booties on sale at forever21 over Christmas break, and though the dress is lightweight and summery, I thought it would be perfect layered with tights and my new faux leather jacket. I really like the final look--it's really casual and comfortable, but it's also a little dressier, which made it perfect for church. I didn't realize until these pictures how short it is in the front (though the wind was blowing it up a bit), but I'm thinking it could be really cute with a pair of black leggings, which is how I'll probably wear it next time.
