One of my favorite places to take photos when I'm visiting home is called Howe Farm. Half of it is a dog park, half of it is a beautiful field with an old barn, a rickety fence, and a marsh area covering it...sounds glamorous, yes? I don't know, something about it just fascinates me. It's one of those ugly-pretty places.
I bought this skirt from Tieka of Selective Potential's "Shop My Closet". I love it! I've been looking for a short pleated skirt, and the tiny blue hearts are the icing on the cake. See how Tieka styled it here!
Later in the evening, we had a small dinner with my family, the boyfriends, and some close family friends to start off my birthday weekend--I turn 21 in two days! Since Christmas sneaks up right after my birthday, I have to start early. I don't mind, really. Tonight was dinner, tomorrow is a party here at my parent's house, and Friday is going out in Seattle. Then Christmas! It's basically a 5-day party. To change my outfit from day to night, I took off the sweater, added a silver necklace, et voila! Evening ready in (literally) seconds.
& there is always, always room for cake. Now, on to more celebrating!
