The Divine Swapping's of a Blogging Sisterhood.
It has been so long since we've had a Divine post! I miss them! Hope and Cheyne are some of the most stylish and amazing gals around so I've missed our little swappings and journaling a lot! These pictures are from forever ago. I believe my roommate Jenny and I took them back in October! Eeek! However, the packages are being sent around again and you will be seeing more of us!
Well, I am back at school and it's been insane! Did you all like Niklaas? Tehe. I was so excited that he wanted to do the commentary. I swear, I wasn't trying to copy Tieka, but having someone else plan an outfit for you is so nice! Plus, what he chose was something I'd totally wear every day. Ha! I really needed that three day break, too. My registration got completely wacked out. On Monday, I got a notice saying I was on "academic probation". What?!?!? After calling the registrar's office, I found out that during the registration craze, they had mis-registered me and put me into three courses during the winter session. Obviously, I didn't attend any of those classes and therefore failed them. Well, I got that sorted out, but it also meant I only had eleven credits for the spring so I'm currently trying desperately to get into already full classes and figure everything out. That's really only the surface of the trouble I've had (yes, there's been more mishaps and misunderstandings) and I never thought I'd say this, but I just want my schedule and to do all my homework!
This dear little dress is the lovely Cheyne's! It's always so exciting to open a swapping package to a surprise inside! At first, I had no idea how I was going to style it. Originally, I put on black tights and a black cardigan, but it felt too unstyled. Ha! I liked the yellow in the dress and hadn't worn this scarf in too long, so I decided to style everything else around the scarf and dress! Patterned tights, khaki top, boots, and done!
So, I know you all read this, but I can't contain myself. Niklaas got into Montanaaa! Weeeeeee! It's so exciting. Also, I just wanted to point out the pure coincidence of the whole thing. I applied and chose Montana before we were even friends. We were talking about this before we left and remembered the day we were both in one of our teacher's classrooms and he overheard a conversation between me and the teacher talking about recommendation letters to Montana. He asked me, "Are you going to Montana? I want to go there!" Everyone, this was before we were together. Or friends! Hahaha. I definitely don't think I'm in the place to choose a place for my "future" based purely on where someone was going to be. It just seems like it's going to work out that I could go where I wanted and he could go where he wanted and it happens to be the same place.
Oh! Also. Your comments on my one hundredth post have absolutely astounded me. I literally had butterflies in my stomach reading them! It makes me happy when you all tell me you like what I'm wearing, but when I'm putting myself out there and telling you all real-life details and get that much feedback? Holy cow. Holy cow!!! It's making me tear up thinking about it. I've said in other posts that I sometimes feel awkward posting "life" posts because they get the least comments/views/feedback, but, everyone, that one is the new record holder. I'm amazed. Maybe I'm in the wrong blog business? ;) Ha! Maybe I just need more lifey-writing posts? I think I might just have a little more bravery in me to do so.
Again, thank you for every kind word. It means more than I can say.
