Plaid Dress – Tommy Hilfiger (similar here)
Slingbacks – Goodwill
Locket – Disney’s Alice in Wonderland collection
It’s been quite a long time since my last post. As in months. A lot has happened in that time and, at the same time, little has changed. I went on hiatus from blogging (several times actually…whoops) because I wasn’t feeling myself, didn’t feel like I had anything original to share with the world, and wasn’t feeling joy writing about or living my life. I wish I could tell you that has all changed, that I’ve gone on a magical quest that led to my being crowned Queen of the Dragons and discovering my purpose!
Alas, that is not quite the case.
However, I’ve felt inclined to get back to blogging over the past few weeks, so here I am. I’ve missed documenting my life and putting my thoughts down in writing. I’ve also missed the feedback and connections I’ve shared with people over posts. So here is my attempt at returning to that!
Kicking off with an outfit post as usual! This week marked the beginning of my Senior year of university and above is what I wore for the first day of school. The plaid shirt dress is Tommy Hilfiger, picked up this summer while visiting my grandmother in Virginia. The mustard slingbacks were a find at Goodwill and the necklace is Disney Alice in Wonderland themed!
As for school, this year has me anxious already though I’m hoping to overcome that. Unfortunately my Musical Theatre major and Dance minor are nearly complete meaning the bulk of my classes are for my International Business major and Honors thesis. It is no secret that I much prefer my artistic major, so I’m not thrilled about some of my coursework. Currently taking 20 hours and auditing 6: 3 management classes, finance, performing arts career seminar, musical theatre repertoire, rehearsal and production, voice lessons, touring a new children’s show around Kentucky, and researching for my thesis called Backwards in High Heels: Examining the Careers and Artistic Contributions of Fred Astaire’s Dance Partners. Please note the lack of dance or acting classes. But the most stressful part is figuring out whether I can graduate on time and if the classes I need will be offered in Spring. I have 30 hours left to complete, which I can hypothetically finish my the end of next Summer if the school is willing to work with me but life often doesn’t like to work out that easily, so I may be staying an extra semester in Kentucky. Not ideal for my life plans or bank account, but honestly my pride would suffer the most!
That’s enough of my rambling life update for now…kudos if you’ve read this far! If you’ve just started another year at school, I hope things are going smoothly right now! And hopefully you’ll hear more from me soon…
