Cut It Out

I really hope this past week isn't an indication of how the entire semester is going to go because I'd really like to get some sleep at some point. Since this is my last year of college, I'm trying to cram in as much as I can, but I'm starting to worry about juggling it all. I'll figure it out though. In the meantime, I'm grateful for the spare minutes I can fit blogging in since it's not something I want to give up any time soon. I'm starting to find more times to take photos (and more friends to help me take them), and I'm not about to let a busy schedule get in the way of one of my favorite hobbies. I figure that if I don't have blogging to keep me sane, I may just lose it. 

I've been resisting the urge to buy clothes lately, but I knew that the one time I'd make an exception was for Modcloth's Last Hurrah sale last week. Modcloth's two big sales of the year are like holidays for me, and I was able to snag two dresses on my wishlist for incredibly cheap. This one has always stood out as a dress that I could see myself in, and it does not disappoint. The cutouts make it unique, but it's still versatile. Add this to my list of dresses that I'll wear to death all year round.

I working on getting that summer recap post together soon, plus I have a few sponsored posts coming up that I'm pretty excited about. Things may be a little quiet around here lately, but I've got a few tricks up my sleeves, don't you worry.

Dress: Modcloth
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Forever 21


  1. This dress is perfect for you. Seriously, screams ELANA at me. I love the cut outs. So unexpected in those places. I too bought a dress. I even almost bought one in a large to take it in because it was my dream dress. I didnt and still wish I did. Eh, sales. They kill me.

    I can't imagine how busy your schedule is, but I'm so glad you always find time for us :) We'd miss you otherwise.

    Stay sane, Elana. Stay Sane.

  2. This dress is seriously so sweet, love the stripes and cut outs! Definitely a very you dress, I'm sure you'll wear it a ton :)
    I am not excited for how busy school is going to be, but if you can do it, so can I!

  3. This is very you. Good luck with the school year and don't get too burned out!

  4. I looooove that skirt on you - too cute! Also, I feel like every first week of college is like just run yourself ragged trying to do everything!

  5. Such a cute dress on you Elana! I too indulged in the Last Hurrah sale.... I actually got 3 dresses for under 50 bucks, one of them was on my wishlist for almost a year! Since I'm in CA, I won't get mine until Wednesday but I'm hoping they fit. I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve in the next few weeks!

  6. This dress is so adorable! Love the cut outs in the top part, and what a pretty flared skirt design. I love a good A-line :)
    Also, good luck with school, aha, I'm nervous to start. I'm going to have quite the full plate this semester too. Starting tomorrow, AHHH! :D

  7. Aw, I saw this dress on Modcloth's sale and thought it was soooo cute! It looks perfect on you! And I'm sorry things have been hectic with school- I'm beginning my first year of college in a week and I'm worried about how I'll ever have free time to blog or read for pleasure or even take a nap!!
