Rediscovered.

Lace Blouse, Brown Boots: Tan Satchel: Thrifted.
Purple Skirt, Purple Knitted Hat: Forever21.
Necklace: Gift.

Hello everyone!
Golly, thanks for all of the kind congratulations on my new roommate... I'm excited that you all are excited! Anyways, I felt super accomplished today because I got a guest post done, an interview, some emails sent, outfit photos taken, and now I'm doing this post! Now school work on the other hand...not as productive, haha ;)

This skirt is one I've had forever and used to wear all of the time, but I've never featured it on here before. I got tired of it about a year or so ago and tried selling it to Plato's Closet, but as always they didn't take it (they never take any of my clothes; humph). After the few failed sale attempts, I put this skirt in a container to make room in my closet for new pieces. It wasn't until a few days ago that I opened up the container and fell in love with the skirt all over again! I wish I could rediscover pieces in my wardrobe everyday.

Hope you all had a good weekend!
With much love, Lauren.

I'm glad you didn't throw that adorable skirt away, Lauren! I also love the purple eyeshadow on you! You look lovely!

Don't you just love it when you have those moments when you re- fall in love with clothes. This happened to me the other day when I pulled on a vintage vest that I was probably avoiding since it came from my ex's grandma. Now, I'm grateful that I least have some cute clothes to show from a terrible relationship. :P

I love the purple with the lace top, very interesting combination. Also? Discovering new wardrobe pieces is one of the best parts about going away to college (congrats on the roommate by the way, a good one will help SO much). I left over half of my clothes at home and switch clothes out during seasons so that happens to me every time I come home!

You are just too cute! Absolutely love this outfit, especially the lace blouse. Hope your Goodwill collection is going good!

This skirt is fantastic! I love it so much and I love the top. It looks like they were made for each other. And I'm totally with you, productivity on the blog, laziness for life.
