home is whenever i'm with you

Eeee!! So, I'm sitting here in my undergarments (inappropriate for blogging? yes..probably) furiously typing at my desk and throwing clothes onto hangers so that I can go outside and hang out with my boyy!! I actually typed out this blog post last night, but I was in such a mopey mood last night that when I went back in to blogger to post this, I decided to erase everything I'd said and type again! I know, I know, me in a bad mood? Believe me, it happens. And probably more often than most think. Actually, I used to hate myself because I couldn't stay upset for too long before I was myself again and got over it. But the truth is, more than anything, I hate being in a bad mood and can never be upset for more than an hour, a night at most. I just get so mad at myself for being mad that it turns into this ridiculous cycle and finally will myself to realize I'm over analyzing something and thinking too hard. And viola! It's fixed. It's really silly, actually.
Anyways, back to the point: I am in a really good mood! I guess this is because I'm so excited to be actually home. It's been weeks!! And funny enough, I wasn't that excited until we came to the crest of the hill overlooking my little town and then I was just absolutely elated! I felt like the energized self that I am and it felt so good:).
This has to be in the top 3 of my favorite photoshoots so far. I wish I could say my boy took them...but he was gone when I took these, unfortunately. One of my friends took them and it was SO much fun!! We bought these nerd glasses for the fun of it and really just went with it. I felt like a different person! I love how the colors looked against the brick and I couldn't be happier with how these tights worked with my shorts! I was lucky enough to order 5 pairs of tights during Urban Outfitter's sale a while back, but because of the season, I hadn't used them until now. I love them!! I wear these shorts about twice a week with tshirts, tank tops, and different lightweight tops, so I definitely loved that I could mix it up in this shoot. It proves to me that they can transition into fall!
I have had this cardigan for so long that I've lost track of how many times I've worn it. I just love how rich the color is! I borrowed my friend's Run DMC tshirt and had been wearing it with this cardigan for a couple days and on impulse, decided to mix up the styling and throw it with shorts and tights. Keeping in theme with the "school" look, I added a pair of oxford heels that I LOVE. So cute. It may be a bit busy of an outfit...but honestly, it was so fun to wear!!
So I'm officially 18, by the way. Wow. Adulthood, here I come!
tights- urban outfitters $15 sweater- AE $40 tee-borrowed heels- Kmart flounce shorts$15- H&M belt-f21

I'm sorry for all the pictures. I just liked so many of them!! I've figured out that as beautiful as the weather is on sunny, lovely days, the best picture taking weather is when it's overcast outside. Seriously. But you all probably know that already haha :)
I hope you have a great day! OH!!! Also! Another reason for my superb mood is the fact that....I HAVE 100 FOLLOWERS NOW!!!! I can't believe I'm already here in 4 short months. Holy cow. Thank you. All of you. Each and every one. You make my day just that much brighter :)
Don't forget to enter my giveaway!! Here! :) 5 dresses....$100!

Your shorts are adorable! And I definitely come out better when it's cloudy out. The lighting tends to get all weird when it's too sunny! Maybe I just need to figure out some camera settings. It's so intimidating though!

Alex said...
