long time, no see


//dress: marshalls / jacket: jcp / tights: target / boots: thrifted / jewelry: gifts/vintage//

I've missed writing on this little blog, and now that I have a break from school, I'm excited to dive back into it. I had finals at the start of this month, then immediately after, hopped on a plane to Orange County with my boyfriend to meet up with his family for a week of Disneyland, Universal, and SeaWorld. I bunked with his little niece, and we all had a blast. Still...after I got back, I desperately needed to recover after a week of what seemed like almost nonstop walking, haha. I didn't take as many pictures as I normally would have, but I did get a few, which I will hopefully be sharing on the blog sometime soon! So that's what I've been up to during my blog hiatus (oh—and I also got my hair cut!), and now life has finally started to slow to a normal pace. I have so many ideas, and my boyfriend, whether he knows it or not, is an amazing source of inspiration...I can't wait to share them with you all on here. Here's hoping that I actually am able to get myself back into the swing of blogging. :) 

This dress was definitely an impulse buy, as were the boots. I found the dress by chance at Marshalls this past week—its pattern jumped out at me from the rack, and it just happened to be my size. It was more than I'd usually spend on a casual dress, but as I carried it around the store, debating whether or not I should buy it, I realized I would wear it a lot throughout the year, since it can be easily worn as a sundress or layered with tights and sweaters...so I had to get it. The next day, I was shopping at Goodwill where I found the boots, a super soft suede, almost brand new, for $5—usually boots are never priced that cheaply at Goodwill—so, of course, I had to snatch those up as well. :)

Oh, and the camera I picked up last summer on my birthday while antiquing with my aunt. It's from the 20s, and I think it's absolutely adorable. :)

I hope you're all having a fantastic day!
