It's Not Unusual to Be Loved

So I borrowed a few very perty clothes from my friend Isabelle for my Video Communications course since I thought I was anchor this week. But I realized I wasn't so I basically wore pretty clothes all week for fun! I really liked this swapping thing, but I felt bad because I didn't lend her any of my clothes. Legit swapping must happen soon - I love it (well at least my share of it). xD

When I saw Isabelle wear this cardi, I immediately thought the bright color was super awesome. And I ensembled it with my fav leggings and one of my fav necklaces, creating a look that - I thought - resembled Alice in Wonderland. :]

And I took some pics around my high school. It was so awkward because while I'm posing on the other side of the hall, waiting for the camera timer to go, a kid - or my AP English teacher - would walk through the hall and I'd just twirl around in surprise, fixing my shirt and acting like I'm just chillin. Haha.

The photos that resulted are really some of my favorite for my outfit posts! I hope you think the same. :)

outfit details
cardigan - gap (borrowed from a friend)
dress - target
leggings - anthropolgie
flats - cathy jean
necklace - ciel boutique

I don't want to be vain, but I was so excited about these photos and I loved editing them! I think this is one of my favorite posts because the self photo-shoot just turned out great. :) Isabelle's clothes must be some sort of photogenic charm thing, making all my photos look good - she does have a great photography skills. :)

song of the moment -

Hi Erin,
I'm so sorry I've been MIA for the past couple months. It feels so good to have a bit of time to myself and just go on the internet for fun! I wanted to thank you for all the lovely comments you posted on my blog and I'm sorry I haven't gotten a chance to reply to you until now.

Now onto the important stuff - the colour of the cardigan looks so nice on you. It really pops! You look lovely as always.

Ooh, that cardigan looks wonderful on you! I love how you paired it with blue leggings - I'm usually too scared to mix colors.

And I don't want to repeat what you said word for word, but... I love your photos! The contrast of white walls and bright is so cool. Also, I hope your college apps are going well - I feel like everyone's further along in the process than I! Oh well :)
