Absent Without Leave









Aunt's dress. Minnentonka moccasins. Gap tee. Gifted jewelry.

I've been AWOL for quite a while, but I can honestly say that it has not been by choice. I'm on the Orientation Executive at my University and let's just say that it is A LOT of work. Between my full time summer job, Orientation planning and finding time to see friends not on Orientation Exec, it's hard to find time to sleep, let alone blog. I've worn some pretty wonderful outfits in the last while, and unfortunately have not photographed them. Once school starts I hope to enter a regular blogging period, but until then, I hope all my followers will remain patient as I juggle my last week of work, and two weeks of Orientation.

This dress used to be my aunt's but she didn't like it, so I kindly welcomed it into my closet. It bunches up awkwardly at the stomach which is rather a shame and I can see why my aunt did not want it anymore, but sometimes, I don't care about wearing flattering clothes.

Have a wonderful week!

Ah, welcome back. The dress seems really businesslike, but I think it's a neat combination with the tee underneath. Looks nice. I must say that your hair on the photos looks great too!

I love getting unexpectated donations of clothes from family members - and this dress looks lovely on you and, whatever you may say, very flattering!

The dress from your aunt fits you so well!! I love the body-hugging silhouette. It's different from the flowy items you wear normally. Love the refreshing change :]

I'm such a fan of stripes! The stripes under dress look is such a fun way to liven up a look while sticking with monochrome. xx
