perfect two

 Vintage dress, bag c/o Oasap , Sportsgirl hat, Target cork wedges

I received this bag from Oasap on Monday and I just love it. It was my first ever sponsorship item and it's lovely. The leather is quite sturdy and it's a convenient size... perfect for carrying all of my essentials for day-to-day adventures. The only thing I was disappointed with was the quality of the metal. The zippers are very poorly made and tarnished. It's still a very usable bag though, and despite the metal quality, I think I will get a lot of use out of it! If you'd like to take a peak, you can here

I've been very busy lately, and stressed with school work, so this morning after my tennis lesson, I decided to spend the morning thrifting by myself. I picked up some really wonderful items: the dress I'm wearing in this post, a denim blouse, a high waisted retro denim skirt and a beautiful pink blouse with a collar. It all came in at $13, and I was very impressed! I then had a chai latte and headed home. I think it's important to balance out your life as a teenager... making sure that you are doing your school work as well as taking time out to do calming and enjoyable things.

You look beautiful. Your dress is just perfect, I love the little flower details.

I know what you mean about 'balancing things out'. I have the same problem. I get so overwhelmed and forget that it's ok to have fun, hehe <3

You look so lovely! That dress is just amazing. Sounds like you got some amazing deals. :)

And you are so right. I'm trying to remember that. I'm working so much in the office and doing all my school work, that I need to remember that I'm only 20 years old and I still need to have some fun!

xoxo,
Laura

Wow you have done well Maria! The dress is a simply beautiful piece for spring. That is a bit of a pity about the bag! But it is so nice that you love it all the same.

I totally agree with you about balance. I honestly cannot function unless I have done something fun over the weekend and get outside!
