bare legs in the fall

11-14-10
vintage dress, H&M cardigan, vintage oxfords, fjallraven backpack

Slowly easing back into the flow of things. I think I just needed a month-long break from everything to reevaluate my life/relationship/friendships. I'm entering the "real world" in less than two months and I'm still not 100% sure about what I want to do. Or I think I know but I'm not sure how to go about it. I'm looking for a full time job at the moment but can't devote enough time to seriously look because of school.

OKAY THIS DISCUSSION IS TOO SERIOUS TO GO WITH THESE PHOTOS. I'm eating a horchata ice cream pop and prancing around in a mini dress in 75 degree weather, damn it. In November! Is it really November? I had originally put this dress up for sale but the buyer fell through so I ended up keeping it.

Starting to rethink these larger photos since they really show how haggard and frazzled I look after sleeping 12 hours. I've been sick, okay? I'll end this with this stupid photo with this stupid idiot who I want to punch every now and then. I'll still give him a bite of my ice cream though, even if he is a little vulgar.

Fashion Intel said...

Good thing you kept that dress, so cute! Am I a bad Mexican for not liking Horchata? Could never get into it, but Asael really likes it. Hmph. I do love me some flan though.

paperwhales said...

I love your photos! They're always so playful and I definitely appreciate this more than what other typical fashion bloggers do. This outfit is A+.

I love this dress! It's so cute. And I wish I could go bare legs at the moment. It's so cold here though. And I have an obscene amount of bruises.... x

Michelle said...

Such a cute outfit! I have a minidress with polkadots on it, too, that I'm afraid to wear because sometimes I think it's a bit TOO short... I was thinking of turning it into a playsuit, but you've made it look possible to wear short-short things. Hahaha.

Megan said...

75 degree weather! Oh my I cannot wait to come home to the Bay for xmas. Congrats about finishing school and all, I am sure your will do fabulous in the "real world" and look great while doing it.

horchata ice cream pop?? sounds amaaazing!

StyleCake said...

You guys are too cute, but I love your outfit! Very appropriate for this weird fall/late summer SF weather lol

Tessa G. said...

when the opportunity presents itself, you must take it. I'm in Chicago and we just had 71 degree weather, although I was in Japan and missed it and returned to 40 degrees. I'm glad, though. The crisp coldness belongs to the fall and the month of November.

Enjoy it while it lasts!

Chelsey said...

hoorchataaaa *_* <3

Alison said...

Glad you ended up keeping the dress - it looks made for you! I wish the weather up north still allowed for bare legs + dresses.

Colleen said...

haha, that top picture is hilarious, and you're right, what you've written doesn't go with the pictures at all. the real world is coming whether you're ready or not! i know i'm not ready...maybe you could just audition for the real world instead.

Kim - Blonde Suburbia said...

Aww its great to see you two so happy together haha! cute idea with the icecream... Even in fall!!!

Its aout 90Farenheit in Perth today I really need an icypole!!

Cute outfit, gorgeous post!

jackie said...

Totally understand about the job search and the uncertainty. I was definitely there when I was graduating a couple of years ago. The rush of graduating makes you feel like you should have your future already all planned out but don't be fooled.

The future is full of possibilities. You have plenty of time to find whatever your 100% is.

Good luck with the job search!

The Velvet Bow said...

I love that dress, I think the buyer falling through may have been a blessing in disguise as it looks great on you.

And by the way, you are just like me - I still eat ice cream no matter how cold it is outside. Plus I put ice blocks in all my drinks!

Caitlin said...

Love your dress. It's really warm where I am too. It's San Francisco. It should be freezing and rainy. Instead I'm prancing around in skirts and sunshine. Sigh.

Chelsea Lane said...

you are so adorable! love the socks + oxfords in this look <3

jamie-lee said...

Entering the real world is always scary - I remember being worried I wouldn't find a proper job!

Aww you and your boyf are such cuties xx

Emilie said...

This sounds stressful. On a better note, that ice cream looks really good and while I had heard of horchata reading this post prompted me to look up exactly what it is and now I want to try some so badly. Also the shoe and sock combo is awesome.

Moda Inoxidable said...

I want your dress and your shoes! Muak
