Outer Space

You guys. This dress. I have been lusting after this dress for months, now. I got a ModCloth gift certificate for my birthday, so naturally I started narrowing down my wishlist to the items that I wanted the most. This dress ended up making the cut! I was a little apprehensive after reading the reviews. It was getting a lot of mixed reviews, especially from bustier women. I couldn't decide if I should size up or not. I was afraid that if I did, the waist would be too big, so I ended up getting my regular size (small), and it fits fine! It is a little tight in the bust, but it's not bad at all. I am pleased with it! The colors and print are fantastic. I love space, so I'm really happy that this dress worked out.







My cousin Ashley called me on Saturday, which was very unexpected. She usually works Saturdays, but she switched with someone last minute and called me to go on an adventure! We ended up checking out this abandoned village, and then got kicked out after about 10-15 minutes. Luckily, there was a cute cafe nearby where this nice guy was playing an acoustic set. We were the only ones there, so he just pretty much played whatever we asked him to. I noticed that Britney Spears was on his list of songs, so I asked him to play that since I find acoustic covers of pop songs to be awesome.






There was also a state park nearby. I wish I went in the fall when all the leaves were colorful, but it was still nice and pretty. It'll have to be on my list for next year! There's picnic areas and a waterfall, too! When we drove by the waterfall, I could see people at the bottom of it, and one person was a sailor. He was dressed in the full-on sailor uniform with hat and all, which I thought was neat.






There's a part of the forest that must've caught fire somehow because all of the trees that were left behind are charred and burned. It's kinda eery and spooky, but it's also pretty cool. There is an overlook that has a fantastic view, and the trail to it goes right through this burned area.



[This reminded me of Sauron]

I liked that these outfit pictures were taken with this vast sky behind me. I thought that it fit well with the outer space theme of my dress. It was pretty cold, and has been freezing lately in general. I'm hoping it's just a cold spell and that it'll warm up a little once it passes. It's like we went from 50/60 degree weather straight to 35 degree weather. It's crazy! And the wind has been making everything feel worse. I broke out my down coat early this year, but it's worth it because it keeps me so much warmer than my peacoats.





Here's a gem from when I took pictures of Ashley...


Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and I'm excited! I will be making a cinnamon-streusel-topped pumpkin pie. I've never made pumpkin pie before, and this year I was designated to be the pumpkin pie maker at my aunt's. I haven't tried pumpkin pie in a very long time because when I had tried it, I didn't like it. I know, I could I? I think it had to do with the texture. I'm hoping that I'll try it again and like it now that I'm older. Plus this pie has a streusel top, which is always a bonus. We shall see tomorrow! Have a great Thanksgiving, everybody! :)


  1. Your dress is so cool, lovely outfit!

  2. Beautiful dress! And the colour of that cardigan looks amazing on you!

  3. The scenery in your pictures is breathtaking! How exciting. And that dress... jealous! I have yet to own anything galactic related in my wardrobe. I would own so many ModCloth dresses, except for the fact that it's all so expensive. But I love outer space so I definitely need to keep my eye out for an outer space print when I go shopping. I'm determined :)
