Let Me Fall

 blouse: forever 21, skirt: target, socks: urban outfitters, shoes: old navy

There's something about a room full of windows, a solitary place where you can stand in the warmth of the sun rays or gaze out at a star filled sky unaffected by the cold wind as you look out collecting your thoughts, or perhaps getting lost in them is more correct. All of my life I've been dreaming through windows, whether it be during class, at home, or as a little kid in the backseat of a car, and I guess today was no different. I have so many dreams, hopes, plans, and thoughts in my head that I often have to take time to reflect on and put back in order, especially when things in life get hectic. I have vision for my life, and getting away for a few minutes helps me to keep that vision in order, and reminds me of what I want to do, who I want to be, and how I plan to get there. This is easiest when I'm in a place where I can think without interruption. Give me an overlooking view, a rooftop, or a big window, then cut out all the ropes and let me fall.

Is it ironic, or am I just reading too much into, but looking back at these pictures I find it interesting that I spent some time dreaming in a peter pan collar blouse, when you know, Peter Pan is one the most classic dreamers, even if he isn't real. Then of course, it's almost impossible for me not to combine lace with blush pink, and add gray socks because just as the warm weather came, it has gone again! Oh well, I know spring will be here soon, and I really can't wait for it. 

As for the music today, I've attached Birdy's cover of "Skinny Love". Gosh, she has the most beautiful voice. Normally, when I hear Bon Iver singing this it tugs on my emotions and makes me feel kinda sad (which is its purpose I believe, so well done Bon Iver), but when Birdy sings it, I'm always so wrapped up in the pureness of her voice that it just makes me feel slightly happier if anything (so, well done Birdy, well done).


  1. Love your over the knee socks! So cute! You make me want a pair!


  2. I think this whole outfit is a beautiful combo. I completely agree about Birdy's cover too. I actually like hers better than the original.

  3. I love how feminine this outfit is! I agree, there's nothing better than a room full of windows. I too am a day dreamer, and your photos are the perfect inspiration for a few more dreams.
