Pinspiration, #2

Well, hello there lovelies. I'm glad to say, I've made it through another year of college. It's actually really mind boggling to me that I've already been in school for three years.. seems like just yesterday I was moving into my freshman dorm. My little break was much needed though, three exams in less than 24 hours was not a fun thing to study for, and I was having serious trouble falling asleep. I think I just have way, way too much on my mind, but you'll be glad to know.. I had one heck of a nap yesterday afternoon. Warning in advance, I'm sorry if this post is random and ramble-y.. or if words are misspelled and sentences don't quite make sense. My brain is still in finals mode. AKA: blaaaaaah. 

Anyway! My second Pinspiration (you can check out my first one, here) was one that I knew I could do right away, well.. it took me like three minutes to realize I had a scarf pretty much exactly like the one in the photo, I always forget about scarves.. there just aren't too many opportunities to wear them in Texas. But, I am really digging getting to wear a bright color with all my neutrals! Plus, I got to wear my mocs with a dress for the first time, yeah, you can bet your bottom dollar this will be happening a lot. Seriously, they are the most comfortable shoes on the face of the planet.

I think Curtis likes this dress, because he always compliments me when I wear it, no matter how I do it. It's quite cute. We went shopping for some clothes/swim trunks for him for the honeymoon yesterday, it's getting so close but somehow, it still seems so surreal! Packing for a cruise is actually really difficult you guys. You have to bring fancy clothes, swimwear, lounge clothes, nicer..but not too nice clothes, ahhh.. it's too much for me, the girl who over-packs for a weekend trip! I am planning on doing a packing post next week though, maybe it'll help me organize a little better?

Oh, I wanted to thank all of you for your kind words on my last post. You all are so, so supportive, and I am so thankful for having found such a fantastic group of women here. I love reading all of the sweet comments everyday, some make me tear up (okay.. bawl like a baby), others make me crackup so much that Curtis thinks I'm a crazy person, but I love reading them so very much. So, thank you all for the friendship you have shown me! I kind of can't believe I hit 100 followers over the weekend, it made studying a little bit more manageable. I'm so happy to have started this blog, and I know it can only get better from here! Love you guys!

Have a happy, happy Wednesday! For those of you still taking finals, good luck and study hard!

  27. I loooove your outfit - your polka dot dress is adorable and I've been on the hunt for a similar coral necklace for foreverrrr! Of course Curtis loves when you wear this dress - it was made for you and your cute little body!! Congratulations on making it through another year of school. I'm always so shocked when the end of the school year has arrived - the days are long but the months are short!!! Also, Muggles is SO CUTE I CAN'T EVEN STAND IT. That last picture of her little butt? Love it.
