don't worry be happy

I've had a really tough week. Hardly any sleep, too much work and caffeine. I came home today with the thought that I would take a little nap no more than an hour. My little nap turned into 5 hours, more sleep than I've had for the past 2 days. I must say that although I lost a day of studying, I am thankful that I got some much needed sleep. After my family's little tragedy I've come to realize that health indeed should come first.
I've never worn over the knee socks before, especially ones that had a pattern, but I got them as a gift for Christmas so I thought I'd see what I could make of them. I paired them with light blue tights, and I must say that I love the look. I need to get some more over the knee socks for spring.

I'm off to go have some tea before I turn in for the night. I think another 8 hours of sleep would fully cure the sleep deprivation I've been experiencing lately.

Have a a great day everyone!















vintage Levi's shirt. Head skirt. vintage pocket watch. over knee and light blue tights are gifts. Aldo shoes.

I'm very sorry you've been having some tough times in life recently. I believe sleep really does help a lot, so I hope you have a very nice full night's sleep tonight.

Also, this outfit? Lovely, as always!

I am loving the socks, especially in combination with your top and bangles. Really worked out well.

I had a similar sleepless week. I feel so overworked, and it's just high school! I hope you are doing alright :)

Sleep is the best - I can only function properly after about 12 hours haha... hope you wake up feeling refreshed and you should definately invest in some more OTK socks because you pull them off perfectly! :) x

Health really must come first. I'm glad you caught up a little. I know what it's like to be in that continual cycle of sleep deprivation.

I love the socks! They look great.

Whatever busy you are, you should still have some sleep. I've been there before, studying almost without a sleep. But i then realize that health is important just like yours. =D

Btw, thanks for visiting on my blog. =D
