Today I tagged along with Eric to go turn in his final paper downtown at Portland State. We ate lunch at one of his favorite pizza places, I attempted to show him where my creative writing class was freshman year of high school, and we wandered around taking pictures at the Ira Keller Fountain. I was a little bummed that the water was off, but I think the photos turned out great regardless. I love the way this black floral dress looks with my aztec cardigan. Although this is a pretty dark ensemble, it definitely matched today’s weather and I think my minty nails and teal bag brighten it up a bit.

Finals are officially over, but the end of this term was so much more stressful than any other term I’ve had, hence the silence over here on the blog. I actually wore this outfit to film myself taking outfit pictures for a final project. I’ve had this outfit hanging up in my closet for a while now, but I’m glad I waited to wear it till the weather warmed up. It’s actually the perfect outfit for this late winter weather, where it’s still cloudy and gray outside but warm enough to not wear a jacket. I love the way my light denim jacket pops against the rest of the outfit.

Is it weird that I was hoping for cloudy weather this week so that I could wear this outfit? It’s been so sunny and warm lately that I was worried I was going to have to skip right into spring without getting the opportunity to wear my last few winter outfits. Today it was warm enough that I could wear this outfit by itself by cool enough that I didn’t feel like an idiot walking around in mostly black. To be honest, I am so overwhelmed with everything I have going on this week that getting all dolled up has been pretty low on my list of priorities. I did manage to do my hair and put on cute clothes today, which definitely made a difference in how I felt. I just can’t wait for this week to be over! I just found out last night that my family and I are going to Las Vegas and Arizona for spring break, which is super excited because we’ve done the exact same thing for spring break ever since I can remember. After this week is over, I’ll definitely be ready to go play in the sun!
