time to dress up! OOTD

Salutations audience! I felt like a fancy greeting was in order because I dressed up today and I thought I would share! (mainly because I've bummed it straight for about two weeks...) I actually had something to look nice for today so here's my outfit! 

1. blue and purple floral dress from a local boutique
2. plain black long sleeve shirt from Forever 21
3. gold and black belt from a romper I got from tjmaxx 
4. sheer black tights 
5. lace up booties from old navy (steal!) 
6. my own friendship bracelets and Alex and Ani Gemini bracelet
7. blue floral earrings (i think they're from Claire's, to be honest)

Also I have a mini haul! 
I got Sally Hansen Instadry Nail Polish in Wined Up and Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in Soothing Sorbet. It's the perfect berry color for fall! 

Well I hope this is a good inspiration for dressing up in colder weather! Have a great day looking good, no matter what the weather is!

hello my wallflowers, hope you're all well! also my prayers go out to those affected by Haiyan. The world will support you in this time of need.

so I just had a deep thought, probably because I'm supposed to be asleep and every worldly thought occurs then. Everyone starts as strangers- boy/girlfriends, friends, teachers, coworkers. We meet and then the relationship changes as time goes on. Teachers remain more stranger-ly than friends and friends more so than boy/girlfriends. It just struck me as odd as I was thinking about how I became friends with my current "group". We all bonded over something- food, waiting afterschool, clothes, classes. That just fascinates me. And over time, we accept each other's differences although if we didn't know each other, we wouldn't be pleased with the other person. This was mainly based off the Wongfu video "Strangers Again" which tells about a couple who falls apart. But it applies to everyone. Every cycle is different; strangers-friends, strangers-friends-strangers, strangers-friends-boy/girlfriends-strangers, the possibilities are infinite. But those that end with strangers are most devastating, for one has to expend time and heart to get to know another only for it to fall apart. 
Just some food for thought, bye!
