I thrifted this dress and hat a week or two ago and I love them to pieces! I've been wanting a sunflower dress really badly ever since I sold this one that was a bit too big for me last year. The bathroom in my grandparent's house has always been decorated with a sunflower theme, and (though I know this probably sounds really weird) I've had some really good memories in there. And this dress reminds me of those memories and just kind of makes me happy in general. AND I got my first piece from Jewelmint at around the same time as well! I've wanted a poison ring for years, and I had a coupon code to get this one for $8.99 when it would usually be $30, so I was pretty psyched.
So I'm already slacking on my "blog several times a week" goal, but I think it's justified by the fact that 1) I lost a very dear friend a week ago yesterday and 2) I've actually been working hard in school. Mostly in my Junior and Sophomore years, but really all through high school, I've gotten some pretty cringe-worthy grades. It's not that I wasn't able to do the work, but I always either let other things get in the way or procrastinated like nobody's business to the point where it was less procrastination and more just not handing my work in until grades were about to come out and I was having a breakdown in front of my teacher trying to figure out how to pass the class. It was terrible. But this year I've gotten all As and Bs (with the exception of a high C in my AP Lit. class) so far, and I'm really proud of myself. I've been getting all of my homework done on time, and I just feel so relieved not to be in that terrible rut anymore. I feel like I can breathe.
I am, however, still struggling to be happy with the outfit pictures I take. I've realized lately that I'm just not very good at self portraits. But I intend to work on that (and yes, that's on my list of goals). If anyone has any tips, I would appreciate them so, so, so much!
It's almost the weekend!!! I am so ready.
