Today I realised I didn't pack one single pair of white socks. Not one pair. I also didn't pack any bracelets, but that's a different story. Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter you might remember the complete mental breakdown I had trying to decide between this dress and this one. I am awful at making decisions and I could not decide. It was driving me insane. I was just about to order the white one, my family had all said the white one, but then I changed my mind. See, I already have two white dresses (this one and this oneedit: Woah. It's just sold out in cream. Thank god I asked my Mum to order it this week- 5 months in advance! I must be psychic!), and I'm getting another for my graduation (this one), plus, the only remixes for a white dress I could think of (and could create using the clothes I have here) were with a leather jacket, denim jacket, and red cardigan. All of which I have done. So I went for the navy, and I'm so glad I did. As soon as it arrived I just adored it. The colour, the length, the style. It's so classy. The actual deciding factor was seeing this outfit on Reagan's Blog.Whenever I consider something new and I'm unsure, I do a google search to try to find other bloggers wearing it. There were no results for the white, but I loved the outfit I found for the blue. So I completely stole it. Except that my socks are blue. Which I actually quite like.
Today is my day off, and has therefore been my "getting stuff done" day. I am really, really bad at relaxing. After only getting 4 hours sleep on Saturday night, I really needed a day of relaxing, but I just can't do it. I felt so guilty staying in bed until 10, so I've spent my day catching up on emails, writing to-do lists, skyping my Dad, planning articles and blog posts and doing my laundry. I have Monday and Tuesday off, and soon I know I will really appreciate having consecutive days off (I'm planning on traveling as much as possible, so being able to stay the night somewhere will be ideal. Boston is first on my list. 4 hours from New York on the megabus and it's currently $26 return. Bargain), but at the moment I get everything done on Mondays and end up stuck on Tuesdays. I should have a relaxing day watching Dexter in bed before my five day week starts again, but I don't see that happening. I'm going to the mall in the evening, which I'm excited about (I'm finally going to buy the UD Naked palette!) but I'm sure I'll find something fun to do during the day! I think I'm going to the beach next Monday and hopefully by then my new bikini will be here!
dress- c/o Shabby Apple
wedges- New Look
necklace- Forever 21
That's all from me for today. I've been super-behind on posting lately (I have five sets of photos that still need to go up here. Three sets are from when I was still at home, nearly a month ago. Bad blogger!) but I'm hoping to start posting three days a week- two outfits posts, and my "This week I" post. In an ideal world, I'd blog every day, but I don't think you want to see photos of my lifeguard uniform 5 times a week! Stick around tomorrow though, as I'll be giving away the dress I'm wearing here! I hope you're having a lovely day!
