it's the little things 004

Aisle to AlohaIt's that time of week again! Here I am linking up with Lindsay, who of course is one of my favorite bloggers. She even inspired an outfit of mine this week! Overall, it's been a pretty stressful week with school. I'm struggling to find balance between schoolwork, writing for Her Campus and just life in general. I'll find balance soon, for now, I'll just have to have take moments during my day is just breathe.

Lindsay is one of the cutest fashionable bloggers I follow! She lives in Hawaii and has the most gorgeous, colorful and fun outfits! Yesterday she had a post about how she transformed her dresses into skirts to enhance the variety in your closet! Check out her tutorial. She inspired me to do the same today.

Here is my dress turned skirt!

I bought this dress when I was 16, so I've forgotten where I bought it!
Necklace: handmade by me.
(skeleton key - antique store || charms - Bead Box, Boone)
Shirt: Forever 21
Here it is in dress form:

I also got to make homemade veggie sushi with my friend Drew.
It was long overdue and I'm glad we got to finally have some friend quality time!
Yummy good, great conversation and great company.
It was truly a nice break in the middle of my stressful week!

Hopefully things with school calm down and I won't be running on 4 hours a sleep.
This weekend I will be in Raleigh (FINALLY) even just a couple of days.

I almost forgot to mention the amazing giveaway I won to Maple Boutique through Sandy a la Mode!
That definitely made my week.
Also, Emily gave me the Versatile Blogger award, so I'll get to that asap! Thanks Emily!
Be sure to check out this giveaway from {long distance loving}!
