Last Days of Spring | A Rose in Bloom



All items from Free People.

These photos are a few weeks old, when spring winds were wisping my hair across my forehead, and light sweaters kept the crisp chill at bay. Apparently spring has come and gone in the bluegrass... it was 85 degrees F on Sunday? What? Why? I'm not ready for maxi skirts and denim cutoffs. I mean, I love those things, but mentally I am still in light sweater mode. Guys, I need to time absorb these kinds of things. Overnight summer ain't cutting it.

However, I am ready to style this slip more... it's one of my favorite items. Can be worn alone (and I will... plenty) or layered into heaven. I bought it with my birthday coupon from Free People last year, which is the only time I buy anything directly from them, especially an item full price. The crochet slip is the only item I paid in full for though. I got those boots and the sweater on sweet, sweet clearance a while back. Speaking of Free People, it's my birthday again soon so maybe I should get on that if funds allow! Do you guys want to help me choose an item?

P.S. For some reason I have a tendency to either look incredibly moody or miserable (not sure which!). Hah, it's fun to know what your faces really look like, especially since I am neither moody or miserable. Gotta work on that!

  2. Birthday coupons are the best. And, at the same time, the worst because I end up spending money I would have never spent. "Well, I have the coupon, so I HAVE to use it!" haha

    Love that slip! I like that Free People has so many cool slip options that look awesome layered in so many different ways!

    When is your birthday? I'll help you pick out something! I still never pulled the trigger on those Free People items I posted on my blog. I spent enough money last month....maybe with some luck some of the things will be on sale now?

    1. My birthday is actually on Friday! I will also get one from Urban Outfitters so I'll choose one or the other. I love FP but I already have so many lovely slips and relaxed tees from them and UO does have a henley I've been wanting. Maybe I should do a post about it and just let people tell me what they like. :P

  3. Oh, I also meant to mention I have the same problem with my expression in photos, too! If I don't smile I just look disgusted, pissed off at the world, about to cry or all of the above haha

    1. Thank you... I actually ended up wearing the sweater again today! So much for thinking we skipped spring. I don't think the sky knows what it wants.

    1. I used to be that way. I loved the sun and summer clothes. I wish I knew what changed in me! I mean, I enjoy summer, but not like I used to. Oh, and thanks for the sweet comment!
