joan

 Ally blouse, Kmart skirt (it was $5, oh my gosh!), Kmart shoes, thrifted bag, Portmans belt

Fun fact for today: Joan Holloway (from Mad Men) and I share the same birthday (February 24th) and I feel like a starlet from the 50s in this gorgeous skirt. I can't actually decide what I like about it the most; the fact that it was less than a tall coffee from your average cafe or perhaps it's the umbrella shape that is perfect for waist definition. 
Also, I wanted to let you know that I'm currently preparing for the assessment weeks that are just around the corner. I'm a little uptight - alright, a lot - and have managed to beat my "exam-block-stress-meltdown" count, which is quite the achievement. So far this week, I've had a cry over just about everything, every day. I even cried because we ran out of bread. Yep, it's that time of term again where I temporarily enter the "more insane than I already am" stage. It's okay, only a few more weeks to go! I can do this! Year 12 is a breeze! Yeah... 
I hope you're all having a lovely week, tomorrow is Friday, yay! xo

Ah I love Joan! Didn't know we shared the same birthday, that's amazing! You look like you would fit right in on a Mad Men set ;)

I hope these next few weeks go well! I know this seems like the most unhelpful advice ever, but try not to stress. Breathe. You will be fine :)

xx Carina
