half dead pirate and a fish out of water

Today after school I drove to Seattle to visit Amanda, who has recently moved there from our small town. I miss her terribly. I miss driving over to her house in yucky clothes with dirty hair and no make-up to watch terrible tv, I miss eating dinner with her family, and I miss her coming over to bake and go for late night walks and get into silly/deep/ridiculous discussions. I miss our snarky bitchiness, even when it's directed at each other. Seeing her was awesome. It reminded me of all the reasons I love that girl and why she's my friend and my life would suck without her.

Unfortunately the big plan for the evening fell through because the delicious Trinidadian restaurant we wanted to go to, Pam's Kitchen, was closed because apparently Pam is ill. Instead we walked down to Than Bros for some pho (best pho in Seattle, and probably the cheapest too). Afterwards we went back to her place, got some mini-cakes and watched Community (hilarious show, you should be watching it).

jacket - target, cardigan - thrifted, tee - pacsun, skirt - from amanda, tights - dkny, shoes - pf flyers, jewelery - vintage necklace and earrings from claire's

I didn't really plan this, but I wore a skirt Amanda gave to me a couple years ago. She used to wear it all the time but I think it got to small for her and now it's one of my favorites to wear in the fall. As I said in my last post, I'm really liking how the colder weather is allowing for more layers and more interesting outfits. I definitely loved the summer and wearing hardly any clothes, but the time in between the hot part of summer and the true start of fall was pretty much a fashion wasteland for me. Nothing interesting about jeans and a t-shirt, as much as I respect that. (There is something freeing about tossing those on without a thought.) But now I can have fun again! Also, I think this outfit would be much better with black flats but I think I am the one person in the world who does not own a pair. Shopping tomorrow should remedy that (yeah, saving this paycheck for important things isn't going to happen).


  1. Sounds like a really good friend :)

  2. aw i hate missing friends!

    your outfit is so cute even without black flats xx

  3. I love the second look without the jacket, it's very dark and haunting. I'm glad you two are very close friends.
