In Full Swing


{Dress: Jennifer Lilly -- Coat: Forever 21 -- Oxfords: Rack Room Shoes -- Bow: Honey Bean -- Cameo: Vintage}









Hey everyone, I have great news! My camera is not broken. It's rather silly really, I accidentally pushed a button and set my camera to single point focus.. oops. But all is well again and today I finished one of my midterms. All that studying paid off because it was a breeze. Plus now I know almost everything about the crust, mantle, ocean floor, etc. Exciting right? Today during my break at school I went to Subway with Zach, my boyfriend, and it was sooo delicious! And healthy, which I was happy about because I had also eatn a healthy breakfast. Unfortunately I came home and made cookies... so much for my healthy habits haha. Fresh baked cookies on a cold foggy day though, totally worth it. 

I am quite proud of this outfit. My first real "autumn colored" look. And two of these items are from Etsy. One the bow, which you have seen me wear before, it's a perfect color and size for the back of my head. Secondly this amazingly pretty autumn patterned dress. I bought it a couple months ago, but wanted to wait till the leaves changed to wear it. Now I know it looks super cute, and I really love it, but it fits weird on my body. I already had it tailored because the chest area was way too large. But even so the bodice is a bit too long and the armpits are a little comfortable. The bodice part is my fault, because I told her to extend it a little since I'm tall. I think the lesson from this dress though is make sure your measurements are completely correct. None the less it still looks adorable with a belt around the middle!

And perhaps my body is just shaped weird? Who knows! 

My papa is coming to visit me this weekend, it's been a few months, so I am really excited. Maybe I should bake him some oatmeal cookies, since I have been in the cookie mood lately. Then again, I might eat them all before he has the chance to arrive.. I tend to do that with food I make for other people haha.

Have a great day girls!
