On Growing Up

Outfit Details
From Head to Toe - Thrifted!

This past week has been tough. Not exactly sad, not exactly happy, just tough. Over weekend I (along with our friend Beans) helped my cousin (Kiersten, remember? She just recently got married!) move two hours away to San Diego. I know what your thinking, "pppfffft, just two hours away? No big deal." But it is. For the past two years since I have moved back home this lady and I have been inseparable. She would come over nearly every night to vent, talk or just listen to sweet jams with me. In a crisis, she was the first one I'd call. (Even if it was just about a silly boy and all she'd say is "I told you so.")
After staying with her for a few days to situate her new case, I had to come home, back to dumb ol' Yucaipa, but most of all, back to reality. I'm so incredibly happy for her, for this new chapter in her life. After all, she is a married woman. I feel like this marks the end of an era for me. But with that come's a new one right? Anyways.
To quote a great band, "I guess this is growing up."

Woah! How did this whole rant even come to my head? Oh yeah! I bought this dress on the first trip Kiersten and I had ever taken to Las Vegas! She actually picked it out for me, ha!

  • aww. I'm sorry she moved away. It sucks when someone who you are so close too and are used to seeing all the time becomes just out of reach.
    p.s. on a different note your dress is amazing! :)

  • Sorry to hear that she moved away, I guess modern communications like Skype and texts come into play but it's never the same when you've been seeing them daily.

    Lovely dress though and those boots are wow!!

  • Awww, that's sad, I moved away a few years ago and I kept this quote in mind - "True friends are never apart, maybe in distance but never in heart" - it always made me feel better!

    You have such a gorgeous sense of style, I LOVE the vintage lady like feel.

    That dress is absolutely lovely, the print is fun and the cut is amazing!!

  • The colors in this outfit are gorgeous, and I love how they look in the desert-y setting! Those sunglasses are freakin' awesome.

    It is tough to have someone close move away like that, even just to San Diego. It was pretty sad for me when my sister went away to college in Berkeley, and then to Australia. It's made me more grateful than ever for the friends and family I have who are nearby.
