The Long Forgotten

Top: Made by Me, Pants: Target, Shoes: Thrifted 

It still feels like summer outside so I figured what the heck, I pull out my brightest florals. I made this top when I was in school and since then have just had it sitting at the bottom of my drawer...forgotten. I've actually never worn it until today and I couldn't help but feel happy all day even if I was stuck in an office...there's just something about the print that I love so much. Speaking of school, I don't think I ever mentioned it on here but I had to stop going a few months ago. As much as I wanted to finish, there was just no possible way I could afford it anymore.  Anyway last night I pulled out my sketchbook and sketched some designs for fun...I haven't done that since I stopped going to school. I'm not sure what made me feel so inspired...maybe it was the top, maybe I need to wear it a bit more often.

  9. I'm sorry to hear that you had to leave school Erica. It does sound like it was for the best though and you can definitely rejoin again. I can't believe that this had been put away and forgotten about because it's incredible, just seeing it has brightened my day up a little, it looks awesome!

  11. Cute top! So cool that you made it! And don't worry about finishing school now; you have your whole life to go back if or when you ever want to. I'm in grad school right now, and there are people in their 40s and 50s taking classes with me. You're never too old to learn! :)
