Last week I finally had the chance to do what millions of people had already done in weeks prior – I went to see the last Harry Potter movie.
Yes, it took me almost a month. I’ve loved the Harry Potter series since it first came out – read the books from beginning to end many, many times and have marathoned my way through the movies too. But as the saying goes, all good things come to an end. They are some of my favorite books from my pre-teen/teenage years and I will continue to re-read them over time… but I do have a fondness for young adult literature.

Alexys and I met up in Petaluma to see the movie. Petaluma is one of my favorite cities… mainly because it is the biggest, “fun” city (hellooo, outlet mall!) close to Bodega Bay – one of my absolute favorite places in Northern California. My family loves to go to Bodega Bay to camp out near the ocean. And I’ve spent a lot of time up there over the years when I’m upset or life gets crazy because the area has a calming effect on me. Unfortunately the local sewing shop we planned to visit in Petaluma was closed… but it isn’t like I need more fabric/stuff/things to do anyway.
Anyway, during the movie I may or may not have cried a little bit (the end of an era!) but not enough to have mascara all over my face. No evidence! After we were thorough, she kindly took some fabulous OOTD pictures for me (thanks! <3) and posed a bit too.
Here is yet another ASOS skirt – I know, I know, branch out! I haven’t been doing too much shopping and very, very rarely at ASOS (but I’m saving that rant for later). I took the chance, ordered a few things on clearance with some bags for school and these skirts (and a dress) happened to work out. My problem with “new” stuff is that it is usually out where I can see it, in the front of my closet or I want to wear it immediately. Oh woe is me, right?
Tired of looking at pictures of me yet? Here is Alexys! I’m not sure where her outfit is from – so I guess she’ll have to let us know in the comments… though I do know her super awesome mustard shoes are from Target. I tried to fit my feet in a pair but it just didn’t work out. Target shoes are really hit and miss (okay, mostly miss) for me. Actually, all the cute, won’t-break-the-bank shoes don’t really work for me anymore. My feet just don’t cooperate. Sad times!
Annnnd a laugh for the road! The wind was doing some crazy things with my skirt.
Do you wear new clothing as soon as humanly possible or “spread it out” over time?
Sometimes I try to wait and spread out the new-ness, if that makes sense. Like the act of ripping tags off of something once every couple weeks, regardless of when it was bought, is a mental trick to keep my shopping in check. Ha ha. It works with thrift store clothes too!
