SLIDER

The Beauty in Ugly

Dress: c/o August Wrinkle   Cardigan: thrifted   Wedges: c/o My Hot Shoes   Headwrap: c/o Rire Boutique  Bracelet: c/o RMS
You know what's nice about having a high quality camera? I don't have to worry as much about having a fantastic setting to make up for low quality photos. Haha, these were taken right before I had to dash off to school, and since the sun was pretty harsh, I had mom take these pictures in the shade near our garage door. Hey, it worked, and I really liked this outfit and wanted to share it!
This knit headwrap from Rire will be perfect as the temperatures drop. I don't know about you, but my ears are one of the first things to get chilled when it's cold out. Plus, with our infamous Idaho wind, it's the perfect way to keep warm without using earmuffs!
Excuse the scab and bruises on my knees. Volleyball is keeping me active, and I absolutely love the sport, so I like to go all out. Even if it is a PE class, it can get competitive when we scrimmage. Man, I miss high school games though. Those were the best! I'm thinking about joining a city league here to satisfy this craving for sports haha.
So can I just include in here how fantastic and loving my boyfriend is? I gush about him every now and then, and I just can't help it. Haha, tonight he's preparing me dinner to celebrate the end of two major tests I'd been stressing out over (a midterm in Communications and an exam in Music...yuck...), and has also offered to drive me out to this beautiful, scenic area nearby and take pictures for the blog. Isn't he the best? I love how supportive he is! :)
Can't wait to share how those photos turn out!

PS: Can't stop listening to this song by Jason Mraz! Hence, the title of this post ;)

You have a great mom and boyfriend! So sweet! I love your dress and head wrap :) I played volleyball too. It definitely can be rough. I nearly busted my knee. I still have the battle scar.

I like your bruises and such. They make you more realistic... 'cause you're already so perfect, so it confirms you're a human being like me, you lovely thing. ;)

This outfit looks seriously cozy, and that red dress has to be one of my favorites on you. GURL, LINDA, YOU LOOK SO GOOD IN DARK RED. Or oxblood. Or whatever color it is. Fierce, yeah yeah. :)

You look good in that outfit! :) You should have at least took a photo without the cardigan so the dress would be emphasize on you! Nevertheless, you look great! :)
