Easy as pie

Outfit Details:
My Kind of Pie Dress: ModCloth
Tangerine spectators: BAIT Footwear
Fork and knife necklaces: ASOS (similar styles here)
Lemon pie ring: Citrus Couture
White belt: eBay

These photos are from a few weeks ago (before autumn really took hold), but I still wanted to post them because I really love this outfit!  I'd been waiting for this dress to come back in stock at ModCloth FOREVER; I was starting to think it would never come back!  When it did, I ordered it immediately (how could I not?).  The print is absolutely perfect.  I was nervous about the top half fitting (I sometimes have problems with shirt dresses/gaping buttons/etc.), and though it's a little snug, it fits and doesn't have any weird gaps, so I was very relieved!

I'm starting to feel more and more like myself again.  I'm a perfectionist, so whenever something is a little "off" with me (emotionally or physically), I get very frustrated when I don't immediately feel normal again.  I'm not a very patient person, to be honest.  And rationally, I know time heals all wounds.  But for now, I'm just keeping my mind occupied, and taking stock of all the things that make me happy these days, like:

- this dress
- rehearsals & feeling like a real actor again
- feeling physically well again, after having been sick
- making new friends
- reconnecting with old friends
- being surrounded by kind, supportive people
- changing leaves
- sunshine
- sweater weather
- new blogging opportunities (more on this soon!)
- resisting food-related indulgences 
- challenging myself 
- feeling pretty again
- planning to redecorate my room
- getting a nice review of our Fringe Festival show
- laughing
- the smells of autumn
- having "good skin" days
- lots of blankets on my bed
- hot showers
- my kitty cat
- making money
- living in the present
- being open to lots of possibilities

Have a lovely Sunday!

I also have a problem with gaping buttons. That's great that you're starting to feel more like yourself again! And awesome that you're trying to focus on all the things that make you happy. That was a great list that you made. :)
