I am a firm believer that the weather dictates how my mood should be, and today I am happy as a clam! It is absolutely beautiful today, and the rest of this week its only supposed to get better and better! I am completely thrilled!
And since it's so gorgeous out, I am just about to run out the door to snap a few photos in the cemetery, then do a teensy bit of shopping before my shift tonight O:-) .. I am actually planning on returning the dress I am wearing above, along with a Jason Wu dress that the tag reads small, but fits more like a large.. I just can't wear this leopard bodycon without thinking Flinstones, it's got to be the print or something, I initially bought it thinking it was such a cute retro number, but the more I wear it and think about it I just can't stop thinking Wilma or Pebbels,
But before I head out, as I was taking these photos the other day, I saw about 15 deer! They just came out of the woods and were playing in the field across the street from the cemetery I was in! It was incredible, cars were whipping by rushing home and they were in plain sight, but they just frolicked about with their white tails up, not a care in the world. Seeing them interact with each other in their natural habitat was one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen. I wish I could have taken better photos, but I was in such awe that I snapped a few photos very quickly in case they were just passing through, but no, they stayed and played for about 10 minutes, then they were off into the woods again.. I wonder if these are the same group of deer who are in my yard late at night/in the early mornings.. hmm, either way, it was a beautiful thing to experience.

Easter Sunday and its little surprises.

I can already tell you that you'll be seeing quite a lot of this dress this spring and summer, its brand new, but its easily climbed its way up to the top of my favorites category. Its so thin and flowy, it will be perfect for those hot summer days. Uhh I just can't wait for warmer  days.. :) But the cardigan and the shoes are also new! The shoes are a little on the small side, and the cardigan is a little on this bigger side, so hopefully it shrinks in the wash, and the shoes stretch a little the more I wear them! I've been looking for the perfect peep toe flat, these aren't them, but for $3 I just couldn't say no! I mean, would you be able to?!
But did you all have a nice Easter? I hope the Easter Bunny was good to you all! He certainly was to me! I am almost certain the next time I take photos I will look four times the size that I am, I've literally been living off of peeps and cadbury eggs. So good, yet so so bad.. haha. But I was even able to see Ben on Easter! It was the best Easter I've ever had! He's been away on tour for the last month touring the United States, and now he's gone for another month touring Europe and the UK (Currently in Amsterdam, but he'll be in Paris tomorrow!) but he had a day between the ending of one tour and his flight for the second, so we ended up getting a hotel room in Boston and having the best night together, ugh it was just so perfect.. Now I am hoping this next month absolutely flies by because it was such a tease only spending a single night with him! Although I am almost certain he disagrees since this is his first time in Europe and the UK..

Oh and please try to ignore the difference in editing after the first three photos.. The sunlight was shining through the trees behind me and a split second later it had completely set! I was so bummed because I loved the "golden hour" look I was getting.. I tried to recreate it, quite terribly if you can not tell, I mean, I am sure I could have done a better job if I had just taken my time with editing it, but I realized today was one of the only days I had to relax and it is already pretty late in the day, so I just wanted to get this entry up in time!

I am the weirdo who goes and hangs out in cemeteries by herself. Here's the honest to god proof.. I used to hang out here all the time when I was in high school, me and my friends would 'sneak out' (my parents are very cool so they didn't care, but we liked to pretend they'd be mad if they knew..) late at night and freak ourselves out while we did a loop around the graveyard. It's definitely been years since I've been back, I almost forgot such a pretty location (kind of morbid, no?) was a 20 second drive from my house..
I had the entire day off yesterday and was planning on spending it how I normally spend my days off, unshowered, unmade-up, and creating a permanent divot in the couch cushions.. But I decided I should go get myself all made up and take photos in the cemetery. It may be difficult to tell considering my updating this blog has been so spotty lately, but I'm wearing some new items that have never been seen before on INDIE elise! I've wanted the perfect shirt dress for a long, long while. This isn't quite it, but it's pretty lovely in itself. And a disclaimer here; I do wear pants when ever I have worn this shirt-tunic. It's definitely cutting it a little too close to hoochie.. But the tights and jewelry are new as well! I am madly in love with the earrings, I'm not sure they are visible in any of the pictures, but I can definitely promise you you'll be seeing them again, and a lot. They have definitely worked their way into my 'favorites' collection.
But now I must go get myself ready for work tonight.. I've only ever worked one night shift so far, so I am pretty excited to close the store tonight! And I ended up picking up a 7 hour shift tomorrow morning, so yay more money! $$$ :) Have an excellent hump day, everyone!
