It's only love we're falling into

I am currently in the BEST mood I've been in for probably too long. I don't even know if I could pinpoint exactly why I'm in such a fantastic mood but maybe it coincides with the fact that Niklaas is back in the country and has cell phone service? (I was more excited to be able to just text/talk to him again than I was for Christmas, honestly.) Maybe because after 4 missed Modcloth dress attempts, the perfect one arrived on my doorstep with an adorable *free* bow included? Maybe because I wore an outfit I really happened to like today and one of the cutest gay men I've ever met told me I had good style (but he hated my bangs)? Maybe because I got my butt into gear and showered before noon and did something with my day (i.e. go to a coffeeshop which was amazing, write a letter to Alex, hang out with Hailey). Whatever it is, I'm on an endorphin high and I also happen to really like my messy bun and clean room right now. (Also, I commented on 50+ blogs today and returned all of your sweet words :)!)
One of my New Years resolution is strictly related to blogging and that is to get dressed like I don't have a blog. Ha. I can't tell you how many times I wake up, think about blog pictures later in the afternoon, and scrutinize every detail of what I'm wearing until I hate my entire wardrobe. I think I actually end up liking the outfits I wear on days I'm not taking blog pictures more and I want to take more pictures of those days. Today happened to be one of those days. And my last post, too. And the one before that. Blogging is supposed to be fun not stressful! I'm on a positive frenzy today. It might be getting out of hand, guys.
This outfit began with the simple double scoop dress with the purpose of serving a productive day for me (dressing up always means productive in my world). And then I put on the most recent crazy tight addition to the crazy tights Maggie family. And then the scarf Niklaas got me for my graduation two years ago because it was soft. And because I knew a cold back never means productive, a cardigan. And then I decided I really liked the end product and I really wanted to see my best friend Hailey so I could freak out about one of our...erm, mutual friends getting engaged and my boyfriend taking that person's engagement pictures so then she ended up taking outfit pictures for me downtown. Huzzah! What a hyped up sentence that was. So, as you can see, this is the kind of thing I wear on a day to day basis. Truly!
After a full week of outfit posts, I have to admit, I miss the usual life posts I got into the routine of posting. Maybe if I get really organized I'll start posting three outfits in a week and the normal two to three life-y ones. Now that's organization! We'll see. Whatever you see next is just as much of a surprise for you as it is for me! Bye love bugs <3
don't be scared, it's only love we're falling into.

So glad you've feeling so nice! I've had days like that - they are the best. <3

And you look beautiful. I love red cardigans and your dress. I have one very similar. Simple dresses are just the best, I think, because there's so much potential in them!

i've noticed when i get dressed, without the intention of blogging, i like those outfits too! then i try to struggle to take photos really quickly haha.
i just need to start getting dressed everyday.

kylee said...

uhhh that is always my biggest struggle: being showered & on the go by noon. it's a serious problem that needs some serious work. thing is i alwaaaays feel so much better about my day if i'm ready by then. style compliments from gay men is seriously as good as it gets. they know what's up.

I love love LOVE your tights! I've seen those at UO before so now I might have to run out and get a pair, too. :) Dressing up always means productive to me, too. Easily the most important part of my day!

The Present Road said...

I like your bangs! I am in the process of growing mine out (I went through a crazy obsession with Zooey Deschanel and I am just now getting over it)! Also your tights are FAB! Love your blog!

Jen said...

you're so adorable. i'm loving this outfit and those glasses look amazing on you!

Bonnie said...

I used to overanalyze my outfits so much because of my blog, but then I realized that was stupid because it is MY blog that showcases MY style. I don't need to over think anything.
I love your tights. As always. <3

Loooove the outfit, and in the alley or wherever you took it at. I love the graffiti :)
Good luck on your organization!


Jamie Rose said...

Aw you look really cute! I love your patterned tights so much. They look great with the red cardigan.

Natalie said...

Hurrah for being in such a good mood! Even if you don't exactly know why... just go with it. ;) Haha. And seriously, don't stress yourself out too much about blogging. Just post outfit posts when you happen to love what you're wearing, and life posts when you some fun photos and stories to share and such. AND I LOVE THOSE TIGHTS.

Megan said...

It is so funny blogging outfits, I literally start the day deciding whether my outfit is worthy of being photographed haha. I love your glasses, I am thinking of getting new ones so it is good to get some inspiration from others.
I live in Australia, so we are in the middle of Summer :-)

You look adorable, Maggie! The setting of these photos reminds me of a town not too far from where I live...

When I get dressed in the morning, I decide if I want to wear something cool/blog-worthy or just something basic. I've been skimping on the cool lately! I need to get back in the habit of dressing nicely on a regular basis.

Those tights are so cool! They'd be wasted on me though, all my hems are loooong.

Buttons and Bobbins said...
