(buh bye braces!!!)Do I normally title my blog posts to justin bieber songs??
Truth: the song has new connotation to it that brings happy, happy memories despite the tackiness of said song. However, I do love the line, "A minute with you is worth more than a thousand days without your love". I'm a sucker for anything remotely cute.
Anyways, WOWW. I'm done.
I know I say this all the time and gush about how happy I am, but holy smokes, this week(end) was absolutely the most perfect of my life. I'm never going to forget it and I can't wait until I get all the pictures together to show you all!!!
I CAN tell you this much (with pictures), I GOT MY BRACES OFF! I think I might have told you this not long ago, but I never showed you all, so I am. I got them the very first day of school sophomore year and got them off three weeks before graduation senior year. My smile has been my biggest insecurity growing up- I seriously would come home on the verge of tears after kids would call me "Beaver" and "gap tooth" every day. I know you're supposed to embrace your flaws, and I definitely try to, but my teeth were absolutely awful. I had huge front teeth with an enormous gap right in the middle. It was hard to miss. I'm SO happy to have them off and to be able to smile with perfect gap-free teeth. Best feeling ever!
between my braces being gone, and bangs, I feel like a whole new person!
Summer is FINALLY here and things have finally settled down (I'll tell you more later! I promise!) to the point that I can focus again on "fashion" blogging. I've been slacking big time. I really really want to try posting more of what I wear day to day because I've honestly been falling in loveeee with getting dressed. Is that possible??
I know this is a short blog post (sorry!), but I just thought I'd show you what I'm wearing today and share a bit of what I can tell you is going in my world. I can't wait to tell you all about last week!
I mostly wanted to post this outfit because I wanted to show off my new belt!! It's not the dressiest outfit, I just wore it around town today and casually doing errands. I've seen bloggers with these fancy butterfly adorable belts and when cruising the thrift stores the other day deciding on a present for my dear (his birthday!), I ran into this belt! 99 cents! You really can't beat that!
I lovelovelove this dress. It's the perfect summer dress. It has pleats down the middle and a bit of a flared skirt. I wore it all last summer as a swim coverup.The fabric is so light and comfy and most importantly to me, it doesn't cling to my legs as I walk (my biggest peeve). It's perfect!
I feel like a real photographer would hate these pictures (this one in particular) just because of how I chose to set my exposure meter. I put it at +1.0 which is higher than I everrr set it but I really loved the sun in the background and how it shines through my hair and the scarf.
Although, these pictures really had zero effort put into them. I had to take them myself, sadly, and was on the run. Thus: driveway. ha! My suburu loyale 83' named Stanely is in the background:)
