Sprung

I'm taking a little break in the Florida post action to share this super springy outfit post!

Enough was enough. It snowed the day before we took these pictures, and I was so angry that it snowed at the end of March that I decided I'd wear all of the colors in defiance and to celebrate spring. It kind of looks like spring threw up on me, but I'm 100% ok with it.

I had just gotten a bunch of new makeup stuff from Ulta and I couldn't wait to use it so that is also partly to blame for all the colors. I got a few pretty new pink eye shadows, as well as some interesting liners. I'm also obsessed with this purple shade of lipstick from Colourpop. It's their Lippie Stix in Leather!

We went to one of my favorite places for this shoot. I'm sure you can tell why it's one of my favorite places. They have so many used books that I never know what to do with myself. It can take me half a day just to get through this place, and they have multiple locations. It's the best used book store I've ever been to. I've done many a shoot here, before. I love to browse all the books, pet all the cats, drink the free tea, and eat the free cookies, donuts, and Cheez-Its. BEST. PLACE. EVER.

As an extra anniversary gift, Chris told me he'd buy me a book of my choosing. Of course, I didn't find just one to get, so I got a couple myself as well. One of the ones I got was A Wrinkle In Time. I have never read it. I'm a little ways in, and I gotta say...it's pretty weird, but not necessarily in a bad way. I think I need to read more to determine that.

The dress I'm wearing is from Lindy Bop, and it was my Christmas dress this past year! I love that it's fancy and structured enough to dress up in, but it's still casual enough to wear on a weekend outing. Perfect for remixing. :) I probably have about 4 dresses from Lindy Bop, now, and there are most definitely about 10 more that I really want. So many pretty things!

I actually have some pretty big news, career-wise. I recently accepted my first full-time job in a library and I start on Monday! I am super excited, but also a little nervous. It's going to be a pretty big change. I am leaving a job and a boss that I've been with for over 6 years, and I am leaving a library that I loved to work at, and love everyone who I worked with. At both jobs, I am not just leaving co-workers, but friends. I'm sad to go, but at the end of the day, you have to do what you have to do. When a really great opportunity comes, you have to take it, even if it's a little scary. I'm excited for he next step in my career and journey! :) I'm also excited because the schedule is great. I'm off weekends, and I get an afternoon off during the week, which is always nice for getting errands or appointments or homework done.

It's been consistently a little warmer, now since these pictures were taken. It's been getting into the 50s, which is definitely better than 30s. I'll be more fully satisfied when its consistently in the 60s, though. ;) Spring is my second favorite season, so I can't wait for it to be in full swing!
