Polar Bears and Saturday

A few weeks ago, my mom and I were going through some bags of old clothes from our storage unit to get rid of, and I came across this amazing polar bear sweater that I had almost forgot about! It had been my Grandma's, but she had given it to my older brother when we were little. I don't remember him ever wearing it much, but I definitely will! I love things that remind me of my Grandma, she was such a cute, sweet woman. She died two years ago about a week ago and I think I've been subconsciously wearing things that either were hers or make me think of her. Like this clock necklace! I think I've worn it almost every day for about a week and in my last two posts.

I'm so happy that it's finally the weekend! (Though I'm not sure why I say finally, the week actually seems to have gone by pretty fast.) Today I'll be trying to get myself to get off my lazy butt and get some shop listings up and bake a cake for my friend's late birthday party that's this evening. Cross your fingers for me that I won't fail in my quest!

Plant me in your marrow, stuff me in your bones.

The new lens that I mentioned in my last post is already one of the best investments ever! It's the Canon 50mm f/1.8, and I just love it so much! I'd been feeling pretty down about my outfit pictures, so I hadn't really wanted to take any (hence my ridiculous absence), but now I kind of can't wait! So to put it simply, I definitely recommend it!

I also really recommend this dress! It's from a really cool website called DailyLook. I saw it on Jenn from ClothesEncounters in her Valentine's Day video, and I ended up ordering it later that day because I loved it so much. I'm not entirely sure how, but I actually ended up getting a $17-ish dollar discount on it, too! 

For the past few weeks, I've pretty much just been going to school, reading, knitting (I just learned how!), and just generally trying to enjoy things as they come. It's ridiculous how fast my last year of high school is coming to an end. I've been trying to really let the memories of these days sink into my memory, because I know that things will change before I realize they'd even started to. I'll miss this little ranch so much when I'm gone.

Lastly, this guy has very quickly become one of my favorite musicians. And I'm not even taking his amazing beard into account.

Outfit Details:
Jean Jacket - I've had it since I was 5 or so.
Wedges - Target
Clock Necklace - Grandmother

I know everyone always says this, but I am a terrible blogger. Seriously.

But thanks to my excitement about my new lens (thanks again for the inspiration, Lauren!) and remote, hopefully I'll be less so now!

This is what I generally look like when I go to feed the horses.
