I probably say this about once a month, but this is my new favorite post. It just captures the essence of fall so perfectly — something that I owe to both Mary and my school. Last week, on the way back from taking a different set of pictures and grabbing dinner, we passed by this spot and immediately both said we had to take photos there next. Fortunately, Sunday happened to have the perfect fall weather, while I happened to wear red and mustard by complete chance. Sometimes I forget how pretty my campus actually is, but one look at this lawn reminded me. I mean, seriously. How is it possible for fall to be this gorgeous? I feel like all of the leaves are going to turn brown and fall off when I wake up tomorrow as if this was all one big cruel joke.
Now that I've gotten my millionth love letter to fall out of my system, I can talk about this outfit. I've mentioned before that I'm a member of a couple of swap groups on Facebook where we people swap clothes they're trying to get rid of for permanent keeps. It's usually hit or miss, and I often find myself having to reswap items because they fit weird or don't look right. Somehow, though, after a string of multiple unsuccessful swaps over the summer, I got my hands on this Modcloth dress. I honestly didn't think the owner would be interested in swapping me for this, but somehow she was just as interested in one of my dresses as I was in this one. You guys. It has polka dots and a couple holding a red umbrella printed all over it. Talk about a gem of a dress.
In between homework and procrastinating writing articles, I've been trying to figure out a Halloween costume. I'm just having a party with my friends (who I see pretty much every day), so I don't really feel the need to spend money or put a lot of time into it. I have one really cheap idea, but I'm going costume shopping later today, so we'll see how things pan out. What are all of you being? And does anyone have any good, cheap suggestions? As long as it isn't slutty, I'm pretty much open to anything.
