This outfit sure had a lot of thrifted elements. This was right at the beginning of the fall. My college student friends all wanted to go out the night before and celebrate and take full advantage of the last day that could do that on a weekday without having to go to class hungover the next day, so we went to a bar in Ballard. The night before I had some knee socks on too, and at work before going out, I had a longer skirt worn over this dress. So basically, I got three outfits and two days out of this one dress. I stayed at Amanda's house and we went to a rather sweet cafe maybe 20 minutes walking distance from her house the next day.
On our way back we walked through Gasworks Park (have you ever seen 10 Things I Hate About You? remember the paintball scene? it was filmed there) and took pictures. This was one of the last days I felt comfortable with bare legs this year. It was a cool enough for a sweater but I didn't terribly miss tights or tall socks. This kind of lazy day, drinking coffee, eating sandwiches, going to the park, with your best friend is one of the best things in life, for realskies.
And, to top it all off, we found this Christmas tree ornament hanging in a tree outside my friend's apartment. It was a little early at the time (these pictures have gotten kind of lost for more than a little while) but now it's only just past the proper day.
