(another) rainy day

The weather around here doesn't seem to want to make up its mind, but then again, being a PNW girl through and through, I'm used to that. It seems like spring in Montana means that I have to change what I'm wearing three times a day. It can be in the low 40's and storming when I wake up at 7am, hot and sunny by the time 2pm rolls around, and warm but breezy at dinner time. Pants, dress, shorts.

I'm still getting used to the whole curling my hair thing. These pictures are actually a few weeks old and I think I'm getting used to it, but it's still a process! I don't technically have to curl my hair, but there's something about curls that makes my hair feel so much lighter on my shoulders. I have such thick hair that I usually have a hard time leaving it down all day and usually end up throwing it into a ponytail by the end of the day.

On a less superficial note (clothes and hair rant over), I'm getting really excited for what summer has in store! I'm working two jobs, both in labs, and taking two summer courses. All are happening on the same campus where I'll be working two floors below my dad in the same building and I'm kind of excited to get to take my lunch breaks with him again. It's seriously one of the coolest things to go a full year at school away from home to coming back for the summer working so close to my dad. I love his random visits or when our labs work together and I actually get to spend an entire day in his lab. Being that I'll be moving into a rental house next year that I will have to pay for on my own, I'll be working more to earn more money this summer and I'm a teensy bit excited about the additional responsibility. I think my summer was a little too relaxed last year and this summer will probably be my last going back to Idaho for a few years!

The weather is really hot in here, like its summer, everyone wearing shorts and t-shirts, ugh, I wish it was not that sunny yet.

Your dress and the bow are adorable, and I love the purple boots! Also, your hair. The weather here is also quite bipolar. One day it's 75 and sunny, the next it's 38 and pouring. Sigh.

That's fantastic that you and your dad have such a great relationship! Getting to work so close by him should be great. It'll be good to have two jobs so that you don't fall into the kind of lazy summer ways that I always fall victim to, haha. Yay for more responsibility! :)

that dress, oh gosh i love that dress. i envy your thick hair. i have thinner than thin hair and it's a total drab. thick hair is my dream. but isn't that how it always is? you wish & hope for the things you don't have.

I have thick hair too, which is why it'll never, ever be long. I can't stand it! This is like THE cutest rainy/gloomy day outfit in the world! Loooove the boots and all the polka dots! And I love you!

Love the touch of the rain boots with the outfit :) & you'll get used to curling your hair, it only becomes a hassle if you're running late.
