A clean slate

There are two things lovely about this photo: My friend and the fact that this picture was taken right before she said "... boobs."

This is probably why she said that word. Because she's mature.

Today it rained. Thankfully by the time I went out, it had stopped and all that was left over was the heady scent of earth after rain. I wish I could take that smell and trap it into a little green bottle for keepsake and usage. In my downtime after class, I was entranced like a child at how marvelously green the campus was; it made me appreciate the rain (coincidentally I loved it when it wasn't drizzling on me). Spring just gained a point towards being my favorite season at the moment.

Today I took pictures with my friend Dawn. For someone who was functioning on only a few hours of sleep, I'd say she was doing and looking pretty well. That is, save for the frequent outbursts of pointing out a nearby squirrel which she felt compelled to do. 


Woops. Looks out my mental capacity to write vaguely creative/pertinent things has reached its limit. That was pretty quick. At least there are more pictures in place of words. Given the old "1,000 words a picture" rule, that means there are at least 5,000 more words left in this blog post. That's like ... two essays! Or something.


OK seriously, I gotta go. Bye.

Key to taking blog photos: look somewhere off into the distance like it's really important but not enough so you break your facade of nonchalance like so. Am I right or am I right?

Notice how knees (especially mine) are never really attractive? Like, I can never see couples give each other nicknames like "Sexy Knees." Unless that's what you're into.

Great outfits and I always try to look off into the distance (or in my case, across the dining room). Love the boots with the dress.

Dawn said...

*exclaims excitedly* I TOOK THESE! :) :) I suppose they turned out like the other ones you usually post, so that is good. I don't feel completely inept. ...aaaaand you posted the boob picture. OF COURSE you would post the boob picture. Although, if I must say, the boob shot turned out quite nicely. Perhaps we should do this again? ;)

Also, squirrel.

The last photos are so much fun! And I love your outfit -- it's the most unexpected mix of work formal and punk. Love that. Go get some sleep and good luck with everything I know you have going on!

Love those socks with the boots!

I adore this post, and the people in it.

Little Lovables said...

I love how she used that lace, beautiful! and I usually hate socks with boots, but these look totally adorable on you and compliment the outfit!
