dress: Urban Outfitters -- cardigan: thrift -- shoes: Seychelles, thrift -- belt: thrift -- scarf: thrift
Wow, guys, I managed to make exactly the same weird face here as I did the other day! It's a bit of a struggle to get decent photos. I just can't deal with how the camera I used to use always made my feet and legs out of focus, I don't have the DSLR I was borrowing over last quarter, and I can't use my dad's camera since I'm not home. Even though that old camera I've been using works okay, I have to tape the battery door shut and it eats up 4 AA batteries :\ I'm thinking about just buying some $100 point and shoot or something.
Today is the first day of the quarter! I am really excited about my new classes, especially one about women's history that I'm taking with a phenomenal professor. My mom actually took a class with her when she went to Stanford, and when I told the professor, she invited my mom to come to class with me! And, since my mom is on spring break from the school where she teaches, she's actually going to come on Wednesday. Yay :)
Lots of fun little details today! All of the buttons were coming off/missing when I got this sweater, but I couldn't find five of the same ones. I ended up finding a few different wood-looking ones that coordinate and two of those pearlescent ones. I like how they all work together.
This dress is one of the two things I've ever bought at Urban Outfitters that wasn't on sale. I just love it so, so much. It gets wrinkly since it's linen, but I don't mind. It's simultaneously interesting and timeless. You can't really go wrong with that!
Haha, my feet are so red. I've walked a couple miles in these shoes today, so it makes sense! They're Seychelles, but I found them apparently never-worn at Savers this fall for $10.
This bracelet belonged to my great-great grandmother, who passed it down to my great grandmother, who passed it down to my grandma, who randomly gave it to me when I visited her this summer. Way for me to be in the right place at the right time! She was just trying to clean out her jewelry box a bit. It's got a stamp on the clasp that says "FEB. 14 82." 1882. Crazy. I adore it, but I don't usually wear it since it's such an heirloom, and I'm scared of something happening to it.
Yummy orange juice! It inspired me to name today's post after a song by one of my favorite groups, Orange Juice. You know that song "A Girl Like You" by Edwyn Collins? He actually got his start in Orange Juice in the late 70s. Their album You Can't Hide Your Love Forever is a classic. Also, I like to pretend that "A Girl Like You" is my theme song.
