Emily and Fin dress: ASOS
Petticoat & belt: eBay
Basket purse: Mom's
Ring: Ever Ours (similar)
I hadn't worn this dress in quite a while -- probably since this time last year. It's one of my swapping dresses for Flock Together, and seeing Katie style it inspired me to wear it again. Emily and Fin is a great label, and their dresses are especially well-suited for the summertime. I really love the length of this one, in particular. I own two other Emily and Fin dresses (see how I wore them here and here), and I love their vintage-inspired, casual vibe. Side note, I ended up changing the title of this post to be something more-fitting for its content, and I later realized that it also makes a lot of sense with my little bicycle ring (because after all, Kermit is a bike-riding frog). I appreciate serendipity.
I've kind of been "in my head" a lot lately. Everyone grieves differently, and I think I'm still reeling from everything that's happened over the past year. I feel a lot of pressure to act like I'm doing okay. Sometimes, I really am. But other times, I'm not. People tend to forget to be patient and understanding when it isn't a situation that's directly affecting them. I certainly don't want to drive people away by fixating on everything. But the truth of the matter is, I'm not over my breakup, and I'm certainly not over the death of my friend. I'm not sleeping well, and I've been having more intense mood swings than usual (I'm prone to them anyway, but they're definitely worse than normal). I don't want to ramble on about it, but I'm definitely struggling. Time supposedly heals all wounds, but I'm very impatient to start feeling like myself again.
I hope you have a nice start to your week.
