Crimson and Clover

Hey everyone! Hope that you are having a wonderful night. It is almost the weekend - hooray!

My weekend plans consists of watching 'Pretty in Pink' with my housemates, hitting up the best (and really, only) pub in town, reading some fun books, and helping out with my church's Heritage Fair. And I might just try to get  some homework and cleaning done in there, too. 

This past week has been pretty chill- I did well on those tests that I mentioned last time; thanks for all of you that wished me well! Senioritis has set in hardcore. I had friends describe it so accurately the other day: 

"High school senioritis should have prevented college senioritis, like a vaccine."

"No, high school senioritis is like chicken pox and college senioritis is like shingles.

Sooooo true. 

In other news, I was going to write a super sad and depressing paragraph about how senior year is so weird, where some days you are so happy and loving life and other days you feel like you just want to eat a lot of Swiss Rolls and watch 5 hours of "Orange is the New Black." 

But no, I watched this instead.

And boy, did that just make my night 10X better. 

Oh JGL. You make my life. 

Tee: Gap
Jeans: Thrifted

Haha oh man I definitely had college senioritis too. And then I went straight on the grad school and was like, why was senior year senioritis-y again? This is also probably a reason why I'm so burned out with regard to school... but anyway.

Pretty in Pink is awesome and I need to watch it again asap. And Orange is the New Black was so so incredibly good. I can't wait for the new season.

Both of yo look super adorable in your outfits. I just love your pretty green dress. That color is so rich and striking.

Why hello, fellow Orange is the New Black fan :) Senior year definitely has its pros and cons, no doubt about that! This dress is so precious and you matched the belt with it perfectly. And green is a great colour on you!
