// dress: thrifted, refashioned / tights: claire's / cardigan, oxfords: thrifted //
I absolutely love this dress, but I don't often have an occasion to wear it. However, when I saw Katie's outfit with her purple velvet dress, I decided I just had to pull it out again and wear it for church (it was communion Sunday after all, and I always like to dress nicer for that). I paired it with these fun tights, which have an eye-catching, tattoo-style print on the sides (the boyfriend actually did a double take, he wasn't sure if it was a tattoo, or henna, or what), and a crocheted cardigan I picked up at Value Village years ago. And I kinda love the final look. It's classy and elegant, but it also has just a hint of boho.
My classes are just starting to wrap up, and I already have a feeling of impending doom. I just feel like the eight weeks has been going so fast, and maybe it's because I've got more going on lately. And this couple of classes has also been more work-heavy than usual, possibly more than I've ever had: since the second week of classes, I've had four writing assignments due each week, and once those are done, there's not much room to work ahead on final projects. I'm confident that it'll all work out, though, and it also means I'll be that much more grateful when these classes are done and vacation starts. :)
