let's just pretend...

...that i didn't ruin my hat on vacation by getting it completely soaked and then sitting on it the entire duration of the drive home.
...my shirt isn't wrinkled because i only do laundry once every i've-worn-every-pair-of-underwear-i-have cycle. 
...i didn't spend an hour curling my hair for it to turn out flat and dead.
...the tan i managed to get after camping for six days isn't already nearly gone and i'm a bronzed goddess.

saturdays are and always have been my favorite day of the week. unless i have an enormous pile of homework to do, saturdays are my days that i spend doing absolutely nothing that should get done. that includes showering and getting too dressed up. yesterday, i opted for 'simple' and honestly, i think i need to channel my inner saturday more frequently. i usually end up grabbing what's at the top of my drawers or closest to my bed on the floor. saturdays are comfy days. loose skirts, loose tees, and easy breezy. i didn't plan on taking photos yesterday, but ended up doing so knowing my top priority right now is to take pictures of other people instead of myself and hardly have the time to keep up with my own outfit posting (speaking of which, i have a "website" so that potential cliental can see what i've done here )(i'm ridiculously excited to shoot a wedding).

my birthday is in two days and i have a little surprise for you guys. don't ask me why, but whenever something cool happens, i always feel a little guilty stealing all the fun for myself (if i could share my birthday cake with you all, i would, hands down) so i have something arranged for the day! come back on tuesday!

p.s. have i mentioned lately that i'm having the best summer? i am.
p.p.s. thank you SOPHIE for taking my photos.
p.p.p.s. thank you JASMINE for this amazing skirt. favorite to date.

oh mags, you are just simply amazing. i love reading your thoughts/honesty/posts so much. you are seriously helping me open up so much in the blogging world! i am so used to skipping the little details and imperfections of daily life that I get so wrapped up in everyone's else's "perfect life". Then I come here and I read your honesty about doing laundry when you've "run out of panties cycle" (don't we all!?) and wearing your crumpled at even though you ruined it over the weekend but still managed to make it work :). you are so inspiring doll. i look up to you in so many different ways.

What a gorgeous outfit! You're so pretty. <3

I'm so glad you're enjoying portrait photography. I've done a bit, myself, and it's just not my cup of tea, but you do it so well! <3

Hope the rest of your summer is just as good!

I love your skirt so much! And your hair looks gorgeous, so if that's what you spent really long doing, I think it's a bit of a success after all. :) Saturdays are such wonderful relaxation days. I'm glad that you're having such a wonderful summer, and yay for it almost being your birthday!

Jasmine said...

Hehe! My first thought when I saw these pics of you was that you did get tan from your camping trip! I am in absolutely love with this outfit Maggie! Why didn't I think to style that skirt in this way? But I'm so glad I gave it to you because it looks 1000000x better on you than it did on me! :) Your hair is always the best! <3
