This outfit came to me just before I went to sleep last night. I bought this cardigan pretty impulsively when my parents came to visit and was pretty sure I'd never find anything to go with it that wouldn't make it look super-tacky and valentines-y but I actually like it with the lace dress and red socks. I'm kinda obsessed with these shoes at the moment. They're the perfect shoe for with fun ankle socks!!
Today was almost a very bad photo day. It was raining outside so I decided to try taking photos in my apartment. I also tried using my flash but I still don't understand it (luckily, my boyfriend's brother is coming up on Wednesday and he has the same flash as me so he's going to teach me to use it!). So I resigned to going downstairs where I took one helluva lot of really, really bad pictures. I got all grumpy and sulky and was going to give up and then I thought, no, wait, I have a choice. I can give up and go back and sulk and curse my thighs, or I can keep trying. So I did. And they came out okay in the end.
I had my first final today. I think it went okay- I knew everything I just hope I articulated it well enough!! I found out I got an A on the paper for that class though so I'm at an A overall at the moment, so fingers crossed!! Just one more final now, an evaluation for my journalism class and the final draft of my independent study and I'm done! I also started packing yesterday (stupidly, everything I'm going to want to wear for the next month, and week. Getting this dress out was a nightmare!!) and I got a lot more in my case than I expected so I'm a little less worried about shipping everything home now. Erick is coming over to help me pack some stuff later and assures me we'll get everything sorted.
dress- Topshop via ebay
cardigan- Forever 21
Two more days of studying and then I can chill out, have fun with my friends and boyfriend and look forward to Chicago and San Francisco. I'm really, really sad to be moving out of my apartment, away from UMD and away from Duluth (for now), but I have another month here to enjoy. All good things come to an end, right?
Hope your Monday is less rainy than mine!!
edit: OH EM GEE!! I just found out I'm the Best Dressed Reader on the Teen Vogue website!! EEEE!!
