28 followers! and some outfits!

Wow, 28 followers! I know that's probably not much compared to more popular blogs, but to me, knowing that 28 people actually liked my blog enough to hit that little "follow" button is a huge, huge deal. I'm thinking I'll have to have a giveaway when the blog reaches 30 followers. Thanks so much, guys!

I've got a few pictures to share this post. Unfortunately my camera has been lost in a box somewhere. I should probably say misplaced, as I know it's not gone for good... it's just that half of my stuff is in storage as I'm inbetween apartments for a couple of months, and I don't know where the camera got stashed.

BUT. We press onward!

Travis and I! We took an impromptu trip to this outlet mall in Georgia we like. Didn't actually get anything, but it was fun regardless. xD

Black pull-on skinnies: An earlier trip to the same outlet mall! The brand is "Fragile"?
Black flats: Target, 9


Somehow this is the only picture of me in the strapless dress I managed to take. I'll have to recreate the look for you guys once I've located my camera. ;D

Dress:, Juniors 3X
Necklace: Thrifted


This is a cute little tank I picked up at Wal-mart. It's really breezey and comfortable-- and I think meant to be worn on Independence Day.

Also, aren't those butterflies pretty? I love my roomskie's taste.


Class public bathroom shots, ftw! I took this right before heading in to my shift at the library. There are no full-length mirrors anywhere in this building, ugh. Anywho, this dress is a recent thrift score. Only $2! WIN.

Dress: Thrifted
Belt: Thrifted [Target originally, I think]

I'm aliiiiiiiive

Sorry for the lack of posts again... I graduated from college on the 8th, and my life has been CHAOS since then. I have a temporary job that doesn't pay too well (well, it pays well enough, it's just a miniscule amount of hours) continuing in the library at Furman. But that only lasts through May, and I need to have enough money saved up for the deposit on my new apartment by July 1st. I'm staying with my boyfriend's "aunt" (his mother's best friend) who is delightful and wonderful and a seriously nice lady whom I appreciate and adore immensely for letting me stay with her. The July 1 deadline is out of respect for her. I can't stomach living off of a sweet older lady for any longer than that. Sooooo if I don't have a stable job by then, it's back off to Florida for me. Which, I suppose, in the scheme of things wouldn't be all that terrible.

That having been send, I'm having a heck of a time finding a job. Or jobs to even apply for, that's how scarce they are. I earned my Bachelor's in English, but I'm even comfortable working outside that realm-- really, would kind of prefer to, at least for a while-- and I'm still having a hard time.

Needless to say, funds are a little strapped. But in spite of that, I've procured some seriously cute items thanks to my mad thrifting skillz. My beau's bff is getting married tomorrow, so I splashed a little cash on a cute strapless number that I'll be sure to snag a few shots off for you guys. I'll probably take a few shots of some of my recent thrifting scores as well.

But anyway! Didn't want you to think I'd up and died. I'll be back to posting more regularly as soon as things have calmed down a little bit.

hair cut, take two

I cut my hair again. GASP.

I think it'll look better after being washed and styled again, but here it is immediately after!

Also, I need you guys to help me accessorize my dress for graduation! I'll model it for you guys really soon so you can see what I'm talking about. It's a burnt orange color with tiny navy pinstripes... really cute, but seriously, what can you wear with burnt orange?!

Happy finals week! <3
