there's a bug. on my dress.

8.21.2012

just started school on monday. i'm super excited about it! spots opened up in two of the three classes i was hoping for. the one that i'm really excited about is photography. i can't wait to get back in the darkroom! it's been way too long. plus my teacher seems super cool. i just feel energized when i'm a student. i knew from my very first semester that i'd be one of those people who were constantly taking classes, even if it's just for fun!
i did not however know that i'd be someone who's favorite dress would have beetles on it, but i can't really say i'm surprised--i've always had an eye for the stranger things.
are you in school this semester? taking any fun classes? i'd love to hear!
outfit details:
'a' watch: urban outfitters $22
insect dress: c/o oasap
steve madden wedges: last chance $20
curls done without heat using curlformers (there's a picture of them in my hair in this post)

You look lovely! I like how you did your hair with the curlformers! I got them for Christmas but I can´t use them well. I must practice more :))
I am also a student who likes taking many classes. This semester I am taking extra french and german and also a class where I will learn editing pictures, hopefuly in Photoshop. Can´t wait! :)

I was actually looking at community ed classes before I read this! I also love that dress.

Awesome dress. I am actually taking a photoshop class at the red mountain campus. It has been way too long since I have been in school . I am majorly nervous but excited...I think. My heart is pounding just thinking about it.

I'm glad you managed to get in to some classes, I was looking at some at my local college but they have all been booked for months and months, next year I will learn. That dress looks lovely on you, it reminds me of the cover of a book I used to own, very pretty xo

I love this dress! The insect print is amazing!! I'm super jealous that you're taking a photography class...I really want to take another photo class soon. Maybe next semester?

alexis KS said...

I AM! Hopefully it'll be my last semester. I'm having complications with my pregnancy so it's a waiting game right now. But anyway! I'm taking a parenting class, which i signed up for before I knew I was pregnant! And then a bunch of probably boring to you and exciting to me nutrition classes! One I'm excited for is nutrition in the life cycle. Supa cool!!! Have fun in your classes

man, i have been wanting to take some fun classes. i was just telling someone the other day, how much fun i had in the darkroom. i wish i could have one in my home! that, and a wheel, and kiln for ceramics. oh, i would also love to take psych 101, and a few other things. i will probably wait till i get back to the farm.
cute dress, quirky things always catch my eye, too!

Chelsea Hickman said...

Shoot, girl, you look adorable. Quirky cute ftw! I'm pretty pumped for my last year of college. :) I've been waiting to get into this Dinosaur class for three years and I'm finally in it! I'm also pretty pumped for my Stage Makeup class. :) Don't have much to complain about when I'm a theatre major. :):)

So, I work in an office over the summer that doesn't get a lot of action... so I blog on my pathetic little blog, and I read blogs... and I came across yours, and I think it's great.
Then I read on your "Us" tab that you and your husband lived in Rexburg...
Well fancy that, so do I. So then, maybe I mildly stalked you on the good ol' FB... and I'm pretty sure I met you... briefly.... and it was a few years ago... which I thought was funny because as I read your blog and saw your photos, I always thought you looked familiar... but then again there are a million girls in Rexburg who have a slammin' style and long blond hairs...
anyway...
I really enjoy your blog... and I thought this was a funny little coincidence. That's all.
