almost there.


//dress: forever21 (altered)  / black blouse: thrifted / shoes: charlotte russe / purse: thrifted (originally from h&m)//

You guys, I am so close to being done with college. It's exciting and nervewracking all at the same time...a week ago, I turned in my thesis and finished up my English class, and now I only have one class left. That means that the month and a half break I'm on is going to be spent working on my resume, getting my driver's license, and beginning my job hunt. While I am so ready to be done with school, I'm anxious about what's coming next, mostly the "getting out into the world and getting a job" part. Praying helps. A lot. So does Josh--I'm so glad I've got him here to hold my hand. 

Anyway...on to the outfit. This one is from our mini-vacation to Port Townsend last August...I'm not sure how I never got around to posting it. I love this little dress I picked up at Forever21. It's so flattering, even after altering it to extend the length, and easy for layering into the fall and cooler weather. Also, these $10 flats from Charlotte Russe are one of the best wardrobe investments I've made yet. I ordered them mainly because I thought they were cute and I needed a pair of black flats, but they fit so well and they're just so comfortable. I can walk in these all day without my feet getting sore, which is something I can't often say about any shoes, including my sneakers. 

Also, how gorgeous is this fountain? I love the ancient Greek kinda vibe. :)

I'll talk to ya'll soon!

  4. A pair of truly comfortable dressy flats is worth their weight in gold, that's for sure! Congrats on being so very close to being done with college--I remember that feeling well. I think I had a slight touch of senioritis to go along with it.
