Outfit: Don't Waste Any Time

Photobucket
Jacket- H&M, Dress-Old Navy

    I said I'd get an outfit posted this week, and I wasn't kidding! It started to get a little warmer this week, so I was actually able to wear something that didn't involve anything fleece-y. I hate tights. Why? Because they rip- and then they are ruined. I started out the day with thicker leopard-print tights with this outfit. In my third class of the day, my boot snagged the right knee, but there was no major damage. Then it happened. In my next class I bend my knee and riiiip, big 'ol hole in my knee. Buh-bye brand new leopard tights.

I would like to take a completely unrelated tangent and dedicate a moment to a friend. She had been in a car accident in early December and was in a coma, and is going to leave soon. I hadn't seen her in a few years but she was a great girl and a wonderful friend and I would appreciate prayers sent to her family and friends. This has made me realize how precious life is and how much time I spend complaining. Make it a goal to do as many nice things as you can throught-out your life, because you never know which day will be your last. You'll always be remembered Alex. <3

Love your tights!

I'm so sorry about your friend! Her family will be in my thoughts and prayers. It's such a slap-in-the-face reality check when tragic things like that happen. It makes us remember to live life more intentionally :)

OMG, I totally had similar tights and they ripped the second day I wore them. They look so cute, but they're so delicate!!
Would you like to follow each other? It would also be great to swap buttons, if you would like!

on the contrary, i love your tights dear! the prints are pretty. i do agree though, the annoying part is that they are easily ruined. i've gotten used to wearing tights with holes and rips hehe.
on another note, i do hope your friend can still recover. hope for the best. pray for the best.
