I've only been back in Illinois for about a week, but things are already pretty busy. I'm loving having things to do and projects to work on again, but I can't help but be a little envious of the majorly relaxed version of me in these pictures that were taken before I left. It's really just the sleep that I miss the most though, as I'm very much enjoying being back at the paper and with my family and friends who are here. Since I've been back, I've put together one issue of the paper, moved in and unpacked, saw my new niece who was born a week before I got here, got a potential internship (more on that later, though), seen most of my best friends, and watched a new Breaking Bad episode. In case you were wondering, I was most excited about the new Breaking Bad episode. Or my new niece, I guess. I mean, you have to pretty adorable to be important than Breaking Bad, which she is.
As I mentioned, this outfit was worn during my last week of summer for a nice day of hanging out with family. This is one of my most worn dresses and it doesn't make appearances on the blog nearly as much as it does in real life. It's one of those dresses that' just easy to throw on whenever I'm lazy, but never looks boring. I honestly don't think I'll ever get enough of that back detail. Also, I should mention that I probably wear this ring every day. Can you blame me?
I'm considering making a summer recap post to wrap the season up, would anyone be interested in reading one? I don't really know why I ask these things when I'm obviously just going to do it no matter what.
