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.

You all had such a fresh perspective when styling this dress. I love each of the different ways!
I like the way you added the khaki over the top which kind of balanced out all the colors.

You should totally start a lifestyle blog! I see them quite often on other blogs. It might even draw in a whole nother set of readers you didn't know existed? It's just a thought. :)

I've never actually heard of anybody doing this before, but I love the idea! That dress/skirt is amazing, it looks ever so slightly Alexander McQueen but not so over the top!

I've always loved the divine swapping posts! I think that the was first time I discovered your blog and just loved it! I cannot wait to see more divine swapping from you girls. And I just love it how you girls style it so differently!

simplyhope said...

Maggie I love these photos as usual! You are too Cute! I say that everytime I comment hah. The textured tights are my favorite!
Also I also had trouble at first styling the dress. But, ended up being satisfied with the outcome!

Courtney said...

I love the way you styled the dress! Some day I hope to part of a clothing swap group, it seems like such fun!

Also, I think you should just blog about whatever it is that you like. Doesn't really matter if you don't get as many comments, aren't you blogging for yourself anyway?! :)

Brittany said...

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. Wouldn't Paris be just lovely right now? I want to go back so badly. I'm glad you enjoy the tumblr too. :)

The dress in these photos is amazing. And I am a big fan of the cardigan as well. I've been enjoying exploring your blog.

I hope everything with your registration works out soon!

These photos are so adorable Maggie and so are you! I love how you're throwing up leaves! That dress has such a unique print to it! I love how you all styled it too!

This is such a sweet concept! Love how you've styled the dress.

Dorien said...

That dress is so cute, lovely for spring too! Hope everything works out for you at school! Lousy registration people ;-)

Natalie said...

Yes, Niklaas was fabulous, haha. :) That's fantastic that he got into the place he wanted which also happens to be where you are, and it was all just kind of coincidence in the first place. Sounds like fate to me.

Argh, the whole deal with registering for classes and everything sounds like such a hassle! I hope it all gets sorted out!

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I have the same tights as you. And I'm wearing them right now. And I like them a lot. Hahaha. :D

iamjeda said...

i love how you style that dress! the yellow definitely pops out and it's pretty. i'm glad you sorted out the confusion with your academic registration and hopefully you'll get into the classes you want to. Congratulation to Niklaas too :)

i love the yellow scarf and I must sayt that i love the sisterhood posts! I mean its so cool to see how three people chnage up one piece. great and lovely blog btw

Cheyne said...

All my friends are like, "0mg Cheyne, r u going 2 New York just because of Jacks0nnnn?!?!.21m2lkn"
And I'm like NO!
I would never, ever, EVER change my future for anyone besides myself.
So I can totally relate.
I think constantly about how fortunate I am to want to go to college in the same area as him. :3
Because, when it comes down to it, college is setting up for my future. College will follow me forever. And as much as I love Jackson (which is more than anyone ever...), he may not follow me forever. But I hope he does, and he's done a good job of it so far.
Anyways, you styled my dress beautifully and you're beautiful!
Love, Cheyne.
