Beautiful Saturdays

dress, sweater, belt, platforms: goodwill, vintage dooney & burke: etsy
Heyo! Happy Sunday... :) I hope you all are well. Can you believe that it is almost June? Time is going by so fast. It feels like the beginning of this school year was just yesterday... and now it's almost over, and seniors are graduating, and it will be summer 2011! I can't wrap my mind around it.

Yesterday the boy and I went to see African Cats - yes, we spend our time seeing documentary-esque movies about cats in Kenya - it was probably the coolest/cutest thing ever. :) Oh how I love lions and cheetahs and all cats...! Afterwards, we got some dinner and Nat took my photos for me! I love the occasional times that I don't have to awkwardly lug the tripod around... when I get to have a real, live photographer... It's very much fun. He is a good sport about it too, despite my griping now and then (...I tend to want things to be perfect...).

I'm proud to say that this whole outfit is thrifted! Minus the jewelry. I got these platforms pretty recently from a goodwill in a different town. I think they are great and are going to be very useful come summer. They are comfortable too! Anyway, we took these photos nearby a funeral home, and I was a bit concerned that we weren't supposed to be there... But the gate wasn't locked, in my defense! Oh well. :) Have a restful Sunday! x

  21. Dang, I never have luck at the goodwill..I actually just skipped going there in general, but dang, you got some good things there! Love this dress!

    Ha, I'm exactly the same when my fella takes my outfit photos too. I'm so picky I feel like I just nag him the whole time..So i have just stuck to doing them myself. haha.

  22. You are so gorgeous. Seriously, your face is essentially flawless which sounds cliche but I mean it haha!

    I also love it when my guy takes photos for me... even if I am super picky with what I want! Oh well.

  23. I love your blog so much! Okay, this is kind of a weird question, but I was wondering if you have thick hair? Because I have been wanting to get a short haircut like yours, but I just don't want it to turn into an afro because my hair is so thick.
    thanks! :)
