Weekend fixations

This weekend started out with some drama that I will try to write about another time, but I'm still to upset to put it properly into words. I wore this outfit all weekend which included a lot of hanging out in my house and watching movies on Saturday. On Sunday everything was sunnier, literally, the weather was breezy and warm and there was some seriously bright sun. It made me feel a whole lot better. That and not wearing any makeup or doing my hair. It was the perfect way to collect all my thoughts and feelings by not focusing on my appearance. On top of that my boyfriend was sweet enough to lend me his camera until I get mine back from Canon, he's the best.
Interesting side note, my great-grandma brought my mom this sweater when she went to Ireland in the late 1970's. I also named this coat "Return of the Jedi,"and always refer to it as my Jedi jacket because with the hood up I look like Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine.
Nerd girl out!
Vintage sweater from Ireland, vintage Levi's shorts, oldschool GAP coat, AA tights in Bordeaux, Smartwool socks, vintage boots, Halogen purse

  26. I hate drama - I really really do. I've been trying to escape it for years, yet I feel like there is always someone in my life who has to start it! I know how you're feeling - trust me. At least you have a cute look over the weekend, and the sun *finally* came out. Hopefully things get better <3
