sitting and waiting and wishing and hoping

I put on tights today, and I felt this strange happiness flood through me. I've really missed tights; before summer started I wore them all the way from September until the very end of June. Although the break was good, I'm happy my old friends are back. I wore these simple black ones today since I want to save all my pretty tights for when school starts.
Even though the weather was quite cool today, apparently we are to expect some warm weather later this week, which I won't really mind because frosh week starts on Friday and it might be nice to not have to be outside in colder weather.

shirt, vintage. cardigan, vintage. shoes, Steve Madden. tights, unknown. headband, thrifted.

I'm really looking forward to cooler temperatures. Although, I'm sure I haven't seen the last of incredibly hot and humid days this year.

That cardigan is fabulous! It's such a gorgeous color!

you have a wonderful sense of style. this outfit looks amazing. what i've noticed in your posts though is that you don't smile much.. i really think you should.. you're a beautiful girl but your photos are a little spoilt by the sour (but well intentioned im sure) look on your face..

peace & love xx
