Before The Storm

{Shoes: Toms -- Skirt: Forever 21 -- Top: Urban Outfitters -- Cardigan: Thrifted -- Necklace: Hand Made -- Purse: DSW}

Hi everyone!
Long time no see! Really though, it has been a while. I've missed the whole blogging community and am hoping to get back in the swing of things now that school is over. A lot has changed since my last post, and I can honestly say I am extremely happy with my life right now. I've kept with eating healthy and exercising on a regular basis. I even ran in my first race, a 10k, down by the beach. I've somehow managed A's in my classes this semester and soon enough I'll be heading back home to California for a full two months. Can't wait to be with my mom again, seriously have missed her while I've been away. 

As far as this outfit goes I was really pleased with the over all feel of it. I wanted to dress my typical vintage/indie but make it much more casual. I feel I'm often over dressed for most things so I've just been working on that lately. When I was at the mall on Monday I spotted this skirt at Forever 21 and was in complete shock. I mean Forever 21 actually selling something long enough for someone tall?! Wahoo and it has this really adorable paper bag waist, not to mention the belt was included! I love finding new staple pieces and I was in sore need for a perfect black skirt. 

But enough about me, what have you all been up to? Gosh it has been too long, I want to read all your blogs now :D
