Sweater Dress

dress - thrift store // shoes - second hand shop // ring - hand me down // earrings - f21 

Do you ever find a piece of clothing that is just absolutely perfect? That's how I feel about this dress. My mother and I were going to have dinner with our family and some friends, and we went to the thrift store on a whim to buy dresses. (Oh and in case you were wondering, we had Indian food and it turns out that I don't like Indian food like I thought I would.) I tried on this dress and even though it was too warm to wear it that day I bought it anyway because I just loved it. It made me think of something Zooey Deschanel would wear, and my sister said it looked like a mix of Zooey Deschanel + Jojo from Horton Hears a Who. (I took it as a compliment.) I wore to bible study with some girlfriends on Saturday. We had cinnamon rolls + strawberry shortcake and talked about our lives. Sometimes the bible study part of bible study doesn't actually happen, but it's still a good time to bond with each other and give each other biblical advice and encourage each other and all that good stuff. Also! Last Thursday I had my first ever volleyball practice! I've never played any sports on a team before. I think it's going to be a great experience.

What have you been doing lately?
