I Guess This is Growing Up


Hey everyone! Happy Thursday. 

Hope that you are having a great day! Tonight has been pretty relaxing, watching Funny Face; I just love this movie. S'wonderful. S'marvelous. Oh, Audrey Hepburn - no one can compare. 









I can't believe that tomorrow is my last day of full time work before school starts. I'm excited for classes to start again, but I have to admit that I'm going to miss working full time. That may make me a tad unusual, I guess, but, I just really am enjoying the office atmosphere.  I can't believe that in a year from now I will be starting my final semester, which will be the full time internship. 

Time is going by so fast. 






Enough about the future, that can get pretty terrifying fairly quickly, even though it is really exciting too! 

Remember how on Christmas Eve, I was house-sitting and had no clothes for church, so I just hit up my favorite thrift store? Well, this outfit was the result of that trip. 




I ended up not going to the service because it started to snow and I had to drive home in it, which was terrible I might add - never doing that again. 

So, I recreated the look again and Amy shot these pictures for me on her parent's back porch on our very windy hang out day. Can't wait for some roomie quality time this coming semester. We actually moved into a quad, so roommates nights are going to be a blast! 

Well, I'm off to watch Miss Hepburn say bonjour Paris! 

Have a great night everyone! 


Sweater : Thrifted: Vintage
Blouse: Thrifted

xoxo,
