Day 23: Downton

So, Curtis and I finished the third (I think..?) season of Downton Abbey the other night. Can I just say I'm a cry baby? Seriously, I was balling throughout the entire season y'all. I won't give any true details away, just in case any of you haven't watched this season, or any of the seasons, although I highly recommend watching, it's one of my favorites. I'm a big sucker for anything British, who would else paint a pink Union Jack on a canvas and put it in their bedroom? Not to mention I'm semi-obsessed with that 1920's time period, so naturally, I love Downton. It got a little soap opera-esque for a little bit, but I'd much rather watch a soap opera with British accents..oh, and some really awesome clothes. So go do yourself a favor, and get on the Downton Abbey bandwagon, better late than never! 




I was laughing at Skywalker.. 

This is another one of those outfits I've had in my head for the entire 30x30, and I finally decided to go for it today, seeing as I only have seven more days. I've had this skirt since high school, but I've never even worn it before; I've got a few items in my closet that are like that, but somehow they manage to maintain their position in my closet after each purge. It was always too short to wear to school while I was in high school, and for some reason I thought I could only wear it during the spring and summer.. Why? I have no idea, obviously I had never heard of tights before.. just kidding. Oh, just so all of you know, I've traded my black booties in for my sandals, I should've just done this in the first place, but I finally just made the decision this morning. It's not really cheating since I haven't even worn my sandals, so whatevs. 

My hair absolutely wouldn't cooperate this morning, so I decided to give a tutorial I found the other day a try, you can find it here. Abby's got so many awesome tutorials that I want to try out! Hope y'all have an awesome Tuesday, I'm gonna get some studying done, and..catch up on some more of my ever growing list of TV shows, maybe one day I'll let you all in on my favorites?

  1. This outfit is perfect. Oh my goodness, that skirt!! With the sweater! And the boots! ahhh, I love it. so much! And your hair looks SO GOOD. mine is too short (wahh) to do anything fun like that but I am slowly but surely growing it so maybe a year from now I'll be able to try this hairstyle too ;)

    I have never ever watched Downtown Abbey, but I've heard so many great things about it! I will definitely give it a watch over spring break, though, and see what all the fuss is about!

    1. I chopped my hair off right before I got to college, it's slowly made it's way back.. I'll probably end up cutting it again right after I'm married, ha. It was just too crazy this morning though, girl.

      Oh and yes, watch it.. it'll suck you in. Every time.

  6. I'm not usually drawn to purples and blues, but I love this look -- and, those shoes! Ugh, can we just share shoes all the time?

    I kinda petered out with Downtown -- I didn't make it through the second season! Should I start it again? I accidentally read some spoilers and I'm not sure I can handle the end of the 3rd season...

    1. Haha, I'd definitely agree to share shoes all the time. They're my weakness!

      I hadn't read any of the spoilers, but from what Curtis told me, there's more than one surprise in the third season, so if you wanted to, I'd definitely recommend watching it again :)
