the grey funk

I feel like I've been in a little funk for a few days (although miss Abby did cheer me up quite a bit last night!). The boy was mean to me on Saturday so I've felt terrible for the last two days (even though he has apologized many, many times). Sometimes things just stick around for a few days... I'll get over it soon. It's odd for me. The longest I ever dated someone before Ryan was three months. I always dumped them before the real issues came up. Now Ryan and I have been dating for two years and I'm not used to it... some days the littlest things he says or does will annoy the crap out of me and other days I think he's perfect! I certainly don't want to break up, I just ??? I guess I just need to get used to dating someone for so long that their little quirks can get under your skin and just get over it and realize he's not doing it on purpose to annoy me, he's just still a man-boy hybrid and one day he'll finish growing up. Hopefully. Oh, and realize that I'm not perfect either and I probably annoy and anger him just as much.

Ok, enough of that! It's been rainy and grey for the last two days and today should be better! Hopefully all that rain will get the green things growing and I won't have to look at skeletal trees much longer! Here are two outfits for you!

I feel like I'm looking very old timey and vintagey, even though the oldest part of my outfit are the shoes, which are from the 1970s.
Shirt - thrifted Banana Republic
Skirt - thrifted Christopher Banks
Brooch - thrifted
Sandals - thrifted

And today! I found this sleeveless dress in a thrift store last November and it's finally warm enough to wear it!

Cardigan - thrifted
Dress - thrifted
Shoes - Chinese Laundry

My friend Claire told me the dress made me look like a "cute lunchlady" at which point I got that Adam Sandler lunchlady song stuck in my head for like two hours. All the kids at my school are taking standardized tests today which means one thing... reading. All day. And getting paid for it. So I'm off to read, read, read (and maybe look at a few fashion blogs...) Bye kids!

Cute lunchlady describes that dress PERFECTLY! Or maybe cute/funky/awesome is more accurate.

I love the first outfit especially...
It does seem very 50s almost- yet super secretly not.
