rainy days

Seriously, the weather has been disgusting here the past few days. As you may or may not be able to tell in these photos, it was actually raining while we took them. It was seriously rapid-fire for about 30 seconds or so, with Nicole under my umbrella to keep my camera dry and me hoping they would be attractive so I could be finished getting soaked. Fun times.

I really enjoy this shirt. It's one of the two shirts I got at All Saints last week, and I feel like I'm wearing a sort of ironic pseudo-Hawaiian button down. Am I the only one feeling that? If you look at the close-up of the print farther down in the post you probably still won't be able to see this, but the print is actually of flamingos. I know right? I wouldn't have known either if it hadn't said so on the website. Kind of amazing.

I have to thank my dad for my new book bag. It used to be his briefcase, but I was always saying how much I loved it and how much I wanted it, and finally he gave it to me. He is just using his other old one that he got repaired. So sweet, thanks dad! Love you :)

 I was actually wearing some short black shorts earlier in the day, kind of felt like I was rocking the Daisy Duke look, but it got so cold that I needed to change. Sigh. Cold weather is really coming. I know that you're freaking out now that I just complained about cooler weather (considering how much I've complained about warm weather in these last few months) but to clarify, I don't mind the cool weather, I just hate rain. The umbrellas, the boots - they can be fun for jumping in puddles from time to time, but getting soaked on your way to class? Not as much fun.

That's about it. Would type more, but for one you probably don't want to hear any more about my slightly monotonous super-interesting life, and for two I am watching a British miniseries called "Lost in Austen" on Netflix and feel like putting off my reading and finishing it off. Such is college. Have a good night!


  1. Loving the boots and the satchel. Really appropriate for school specially when it's already chilly out there.

  2. I love the boots! I'm too excited for the rainy season so I can wear my own polka dotted pair.

  3. LOVE HUNTERS SO MUCH. I have been wearing all of mine religiously every winter and since it rains all too often in London, sometimes even in the summer.

  4. I barely see the flamongos...
    anyway, what about following each other?

  5. Oh my god that bag. Lust, lust, lust. Followed :)
