Closet Diary 3.7.12

Although wearing shorts over tights has been a trend for quite a while, it’s still a little out of my comfort zone. For decency’s sake, I layered multiple pairs of black tights to make sure my legs were super-opaque! However, I love any outfit that combines a stripe and floral and I’ve been meaning to try to pull off these summer shorts in the winter for a while now, so this is a winner in my book.

Last weekend, my boyfriend was coaching a gymnastics meet in Eugene so I knew he would be coming to visit me as well. What I didn’t know was that he had gotten off work earlier than I thought Friday night to drive down. I talked to him on the phone for a bit while he was on his way and even teased him a little for not being able to get here sooner. So I was stunned when he just appeared in my room out of nowhere half an hour earlier than he was supposed to (meaning he would have had to make the drive from Portland to Eugene in just over an hour) with a smirky, little grin on his face! At first he told me he had been speeding the whole way, going 100 mph on I5! But then he admitted to leaving earlier without telling me and getting another girl in my hall to let him into our complex in order to surprise me! So sweet! Combine that with the fact that he had just gotten his braces off (poor guy had those suckers for 4 years!) and was looking so handsome, I felt like I was falling head over heels for him all over again!
