The Arboretum in Summer,

Finally getting to a new post after some much needed time away from blogging. I had some personal things to take care of and have been a hermit crab a lot lately. Well I am just finally starting to get back into a normal swing of things and feeling better so I decided to finally do a lovely blog post. The weather has been great, Ive been very lucky to have time off to enjoy it. The other day I went to the Arboretum with my roommate and best friend Simon, and we had such a great time. We went to another part of the park that I hadn't been to yet, and found some new photo spots! So I went back yesterday by myself and planned out a very lovely outfit. Something everyone has been wearing lately, a long black sheer shirt.

These were taken on the Explores Path, and no matter where I took a photo someone, creeped past me, I really thought I was in a secret spot.

This is what I wore while I was riding my bike around, that black dress is great it just folded up in my shorts. This was me testing the lighting and zoom.

Outfit details:
I bought the skirt at Boomerangs in Jamaica Plain. I cut the lining that was in it before. The black dress under is a simple bandage dress from Forever 21. I liked the black poka-dot lace with the floral lace on the dress. I threw on a brown belt for some color and as far as shoes are concerned, they are not needed for walking around in grass. I have seen so many ladies styling this black sheer skirt look, and I have had the skirt for a few weeks now. I was really saving it for a good photo adventure like this. I also did my make up fully for the first time in a while.

So basically, John and I arent seeing each other anymore. It really sucks, because I ya know made a big deal about it on my blog, and now I feel slightly embarrassed to have to tell you that we arent together anymore. I started blogging more last January because I broke up with this awful person, and this was for me to do. I see so many awesome bloggers, favorites of mine with boyfriends and husbands and I would of course love to incorporate men in my life on here, but sometimes its best to just let things go with the flow. Anyways I was bummed out for a few days and just have been taking a lot of time to myself. My friend Jennifer from Tampa is tattooing up here and staying with me and its just been the best having her here. I am going to miss her, shes been a great addition to the house. Everyone has loved her and having her here. I feel awful for not blogging, but I just had to take some time away. I even took photos, but just wasnt pleased with anything I shot to show you all. If you have stuck around, thank you so much for putting up with my on going delays. I appreciate all my readers.

Xoxo everyone! PS... Welcome September! Its soooooo awesome.
