Hello everyone! ♥
As I said in yesterday's post, I went to a clothing swap and got some lovely items...this dress (worn as a shirt) is one of them! It's a beautiful, 60's inspired shift dress in the most eye popping coral shade. I made it my first pick in the rounds because it was perfect and I've been on such a 60's kick lately. I failed to try it on though and sort of 'willed' it to fit me, and to my disappointment when I got back to my dorm to try it on the worst was true...Didn't fit over my hips :( Darn. I was so disappointed. Although I love my curvy bottom half and appreciate it, sometimes it would just be nice to not have to constantly wear a fit and flare shape. I long to put on a little straight shift and call it a day. I still love this dress though and wanted to wear it in at least one outfit post, so I styled it up as a shirt instead. Alas...I'm sorry it wasn't meant to be my beautiful dress... ♥
Thank you for the advice reguarding my sleepiness in my last post! Unfortunately, it's been something I have already been to the doctor about in the past. They've taken blood to see if it's my thyroid and that hasn't been the case, but they never really did further testing to see what the cause of this unnatural tiredness was. Sometimes it does worry me that this could be a side effect of something greater my body is alerting me to, but I just don't know what it could be. Besides that, it's too hard to pop back and forth to the doctor while up here at Kent on my own. Perhaps I'll try to get it figured out this summer before I go to Italy. Certainly don't want to be tired while I'm there!
Speaking of Italy: I got the official date I'll be leaving! August 17th, just a few weeks after my 21st birthday. To think that it's only six months away to the biggest adventure of my life so far is exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. In our orientation class this evening the travel agent came to talk to us which has things becoming even more solidified. I'm trying not to wish my time away here this semester, but it's hard some-days when I see pictures from the class that's there in Florence right now and how beautiful it is there...and then I'm forced back into reality of a polar vortex here in Ohio. But every season in life has a purpose, a lesson to be learned, and time to enjoy. I'm trying to be more patient and enjoy life here and now! x
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. If you ever ask questions in the comments, I try to reply back to you there as is the case with a question the post before last about my stance on reincarnation. It's just a hassle because I never feel like people see my response, and don't want you to think I ignore your questions. Sincerely contemplating installing discus--I think it would be much more effective.
