Is this dress from Retro Darling not adorable, or what? I love the cutouts in the top half! Such a great detail for a summer dress. They have a lovely selection of dresses for summer, you should definitely check them out! The only adjective I can think of for this material is "swishy." You know, the kind of light, soft material that just flows down and lightly flutters? Yup, that's this dress. In a mint color and a light pink bag, I felt fresh and girly for a day out with my best friend, Kirsten! We went downtown and hit up the thrift stores. It was such a great way to catch up for us. So much has been happening in our lives that we had to share.What better way to do that than doing some shopping, grabbing food, and snapping pictures? ;)
If you noticed my missing, trademark eyeliner makeup, it's because during summer I typically go for a more fresh-faced look. AKA: almost no makeup. All I'm wearing in these photos is a light swipe of mascara. Forget the typical eyeliner routine. In the wise words of Sweet Brown: "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
So you know how I've talked about moving out - well, its been an experience! A good one so far, thankfully. I really appreciate being close to work and school now. I had thought I would be getting the single room to myself for the summer, but plans change quickly. I'm getting a roommate, and its my sweet pal from last semester, Corina! Turns out she's been couch-surfing for the past two months and needs a place to stay. I think its a blessing that it was Corina who ended up being my roommate - she's a girl I can easily get along with, and she's incredibly smart. Plus, she's a Christian! We stayed up late last night just talking about random things and Christianity came up. We both could relate to the way college has tested our faith.
Since we're staying in such a small room, there's only way to make living arrangements work - we bought a bunk bed! Haha, it's a pretty nice one actually, although we're still debating over who should get the bottom one. You can see from the link why that is.
Any advise you girls have on roommates? I'd like to preserve this friendship through the next year if possible! I've heard too many roommate horror stories...
PS: I plan on taking some photos of our room, although I think I should wait till we have that bunk bed set up and Corina's more fully moved in - that way I won't have to do an update post on our place. For now, you can see snippets of what I've put in the room on my Instagram, @trendyteal!
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
