The End


So here I am about five hours away from the end of an era. (I warn you that I might get a little sentimental right now.) But it's so weird to think that this is the last Harry Potter movie coming out. I mean, the books have all already been released, the theme park has already been opened, and at midnight tonight I'll be seeing the last Harry Potter movie that will ever come out. These things have been a major part of my life since I was like...six. Not to mention that I was pretty obsessed with it since my big brother first read Sorcerer's Stone to me. Some of my favorite memories include playing Harry Potter games with my siblings (and one basically brother), trying to make butterbeer, pretending I was Ginny Weasley (who was my favorite character since she made her first appearance in the second book), and almost throwing up after eating a vomit flavored every flavor bean. Maybe the last one wasn't that great, but still! It's kind of sad to think about. 

Kind of happy too, though. :) I'll always have the memories, right?

Black Felt Hat- Used to be my Grandma's, White Silky Shirt- Mom's Old,  Brown Skinny Belt- Mom's Old, Blue Floral Skirt- Thrifted ($5-10?), Snakeskin Loafers- Thrifted ($1), Seashell Locket- Sort of DIY/Santa Barbara?- I just put it on a chain.

See the video version of this outfit here.

This is actually what I wore yesterday. I ended up changing the skirt for shorts later on so I could run around with my boyfriend and our friend Erik, though. It seems like that's been happening a lot though... I'll be all dressed up when I'm just at home by myself, then I'll end up changing when I go out so I don't have to worry about walking in heels or my skirt blowing up or something. Sometimes it's hard to choose between style and comfort...not that there aren't stylish clothes that are super comfortable too, but a lot of the time it's a bit of a switch off. 

I kind of look like dork.

Last thing! Here's my first stop motion. It's really choppy and kind of lame, but my tripod was out of commission and I couldn't move from this tiny little overhang outside my front door. It would be great if you guys could let me know what you think though! :)

Hope you guys are all doing well! Have a great night.

  2. Your new hairstyle is soooo pretty! I love it! It's definitely really different when you make the switch from long to short hair.

    And I love, love, LOVE your shell locket! It's so unique and pretty. :)

    Blaahhh, everyone keeps talking about the last Harry Potter movie and I haven't seen any of them yet! Haha, hope you liked it though! :)
