Hello, 2012! I'm starting the year off with a brand new... outfit post! Looking back over my 2011 posts for my recap, I realized a lot of things. Even though I ventured off of the outfit blogging while things got busy, I found that some of my favorite posts are my outfit posts. Some of my favorite memories happen when Niklaas and I are taking pictures and I love reading the bits and pieces of our adventures in those blog posts. I hope that I can get myself organized and productive enough this spring semester to continue outfit posting in addition to the more life related posts you guys have seen a lot of lately!
My break has been pretty off the walls busy lately. Immediately after finishing my finals, I flew to Boise with my cousin and grandpa to meet up with my mom. We stayed there for a few days and I got to spend a few hours with my aunt being interrogated about my personal life and being told what a "keeper" Niklaas is. Ha. I babysat my delightfully adorable and energetic cousins for a full day and by the end of it, I was not so convinced that I wanted 16 kids anymore. Two was difficult enough. And that diaper change? Repulsive. My mom and I flew home after a few days where I got to finally come home. I spent that time cleaning, eating food that was not dorm food and loving every bite, and getting a few blissful dates in with the friendboy. It's been pretty surreal to realize coming home and being back in Idaho together that we're really a "college couple". A long term one. Visiting our old places was a little strange but exciting nonetheless.
I remember seeing this dress on urban Outfitters a couple summers ago and absolutely loving it. Bows?? Sleeves? A conservative neckline?? Too perfect for words. However, I didn't pounce on it when I should have and it didn't take but a few days for it to disappear from my shopping cart. Well, Tieka updated her shop a few weeks back and on the very last page I saw that she was selling hers for a mere $10. I squealed! It was a Christmas gift to myself. It is ridiculously short to the point of everyone I know commenting on its lack of fabric, but it's comfortable and mildly acceptable with tights. Tieka wore it in the summer but I couldn't wait to wear it, so I gave it my "winter" spin with a scarf, tights, messy bun, and favorite hipster glasses! (I kind of want a pair just like these in a tortoise color).
Guess what?! I have two more blog posts scheduled for this week and I fully intend on commenting on some blogs this week as well. Lifesize Paperdoll is back in business. Huzzah!
don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine and life makes love look hard.
