John Green

Someone who was really, really smart recently said, "You can never love someone as much as you can miss them." And the moment you think you're going to have to miss them is a scary moment. And to be honest, I didn't think I would be the kind of girl who can't imagine the world without them in it, without texts goodnight, texts good morning, and texts all day long. The walks, talks, laughs, smiles, hugs, and riddles that really do in a way make the sun come up in the morning. Yeah, I guess I'm that girl.

Thankfully, I won't have to do any missing. Not yet.

I took these pictures in Niklaas' backyard while I was housesitting. I haven't told him that so this is the first time he's hearing about that, too. Hehe. One day, Amber tweeted that she was going to wear our twin lace dresses from Forever21. And the next day, I found myself wearing it with the jacket I swore I was going to actually take out of my closet and wear. I have way too many items like those that stay in the closet. And so, one tripod and pair of geek glasses later, here I am, prancing around in his backyard. Hey, it's a pretty backyard.

I lvoe this so much and I completely understand how you feel about loving and missing someone. I am definitely that girl as well, and for some reason I'd always hoped I would be. But through so many bad relationships I had kind of thought that I wouldn't ever be one of those girls, until I met Josh. Now everything has completely changed :).

I love that dress so much, I wish I could find one that I could wear comfortably! I love that green jacket, it makes me SO ready for fall.

Love this outfit!!

I feel so identified with your feelings about loving and missing someone. At first you think you'll never be a girl like that but then you meet THAT someone and everything changes. As an example, my boyfriend has just left for a couple of days and it looks like years to me. On the other hand, I hope this hard-missing feeling never leaves. Actually I like being that kind of girl!

As always, you look really beautiful in that dress. Makes me think that Fall is near and I love it!

Umm WOW, gorgeous view!! :) You look very modelesque in these! I never thought I'd be that girl either, but it happens to the best of us... embrace it. :)

Okay, that is an amazing backyard hah. All I have is a terrace on the 2nd floor in the middle of a city. I get the view of the back of a Sushi restaurant, woo!

kylee said...

lace is my most recent obsession. white lace is even better. and in dress form? to die for.

Your geek glasses are the best thing ever. And it's so true that you can't love someone as much as you can miss them. Sad, but true. Having Jeremy traveling around all summer has been torture. I just want to kidnap him and force him to stay in Jersey. :P

Amelia said...

wow that is a beautiful backyard! and a beautiful girl ;) love the feminine dress with the tougher jacket. that's always one of my favorite combos, i've got a jacket really similar to that one

genevieve said...

Love love love that dress, and my goodness, his backyard. Can I pretty please house sit next? Just kidding. That's creepier than I meant it to sound.

Katia said...

Ahh :( the beginning of your post made me so sad! I'm planning to move to new york next year and my boyfriend will be staying here, in montreal :( anyways! You look lovely! I love your dress!!

I love this white dress! It looks great on you. I'm also really impressed by your tripod photos! I am so terrible with the tripod/self-timer.

xo Ashley

PS. You are rocking solid colours! lol.

Nicole, Coco Maria said...

My goodness, I seriously LOVE this outfit! I love pairing girly pieces with ones that are a bit less so, so the combination of the lace dress and that blazer is right up my alley :)

The Daily Fashionista said...

This is the prettiest outfit!! And I'm in love with the surroundings you had at your disposal. What a great view from the back yard!

laura said...

I adore this outfit. I don't think that dress could be anymore perfect! I love how you paired it with glasses and a blazer to keep it a bit unexpected and not completely girly.
And you're right! That is a gorgeous backyard! xx

I absolutely love your dress! It looks exactly like the one that I really, really wanted to buy at Forever 21 last summer, but it was too big for me...

Anyways. John Green is a fantastic man. It must be tough to be away from someone you care about so much, I can't even imagine. I think long distance relationships can be so powerful though, because if you can get through barely seeing each other then you can get through almost anything.

janet said...
