Florals and Parasols


Before 
































Hey all! Happy Monday! 


After
I can actually say that today is a "Happy Monday" because it is Spring Break. I got to sleep in today and it was wonderful. Too many days of going to bed late and waking up early was getting old. 


These pictures were from the weekend with Miss Melanie and Miss Amy. I wore this to church and then we had a little photo shoot in the cold weather. 

The skirt I had bought at a thrift store in a $1 pile. I really liked the pattern, but it was sort of long. So, my grandma helped me hem it to make it a tad more youthful. Now I wear it a lot! I can wear to church with heels or to class with boots. 


The last photo was edited with http://pixlr.com/. I never tried that before! It was  a lot of fun seeing all the different ways I could edit my pictures. 

Well, I'm off to do...well, nothing! I by nothing I mean, nothing but reading this. That's great to say. I will have to do school work eventually over break, but today is just going to remain a bum day. 


Have a great day! 

xoxo
