umbrella - gifted (similar) // cardigan - Target // skirt - Cotton On // necklace - Edith Marie
Sorry for the silence, & double sorry for the additional outfit post you're going to get tomorrow. I've been having some technical difficulties, but I think we're back on track now. Probably. Maybe. This weekend's events consisted of driving to Richmond/NOVA & back again, praying the whole way for no traffic & still being surprised when I didn't actually find any. Other highlights included strawberry sangria, hosting Saved by the Bell trivia (of which I have never seen an episode, hence "host"), & returning home to discover that the remaining survivor of my houseplants had, indeed, survived a weekend on its own.
These pictures are from last week, when it rained & rained & rained. I will never complain about the rain. Well, that's actually a lie, because after getting trapped on a two lane road in North Carolina during what I imagine was similar to a monsoon 6 years ago, I will always complain about the rain if I'm driving & flooding is a possibility. Also, if it's an outdoor wedding weekend. THOSE SITUATIONS ASIDE, waking up to a rainy day is my favorite. Maybe because I use it as an excuse to wear glasses = make-up time cut in half. Maybe because it took a 4 page essay & a pledge to wear them as often as possible to convince my parents that I needed Hunter boots for my birthday a few years back. Maybe because Norfolk seems to move at a slower pace, which allows me to keep up. For any of these reasons, rainy days are my favorite.
& so is this umbrella, which I'm proud to say I have owned without losing (obviously) for 5 years. That's like, 50 in umbrella years. Phoebe (sister-in-law) somehow just knew what I look for in rain gear. Now excuse me while I go chain it to my purse for all of time because now I'm totally going to lose it.
