Once She Imagined She Lived in a Castle // Daily Outfit

You know how sometimes a change creeps in very slowly, and you don't notice it until one day you wake up and think "when did that happen?!" Well, that is how I feel of late. I've spent all my life a child, and the suddenly last week I realized that I'm not one anymore. Monday was my first day as a senior in high school, and I am four months away from turning eighteen.

But it is more than that. I don't feel like a child anymore. I feel like a young woman. It's not a scary feeling, just different. I'm not used to it, but at the same time I am. Some of my best friends are in their twenties, and I am eager to start my career. I want to be married. To have a family, and I feel as if I could do all of this tomorrow. Except that I'm still in high school. Which is a bit frustrating, to say the least.

I wore this outfit when my family went to Ravina to see the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring movie with a live orchestra last Saturday. I got the dress from a thrift store when I visited my cousins. I didn't like the length of the skirt and sleeves, though, so I pinned them both up. Worked for the night but I definitely need to get it to a tailor to have the sleeves properly shortened (I'm not brave enough to attempt it!). Despite that, however, I did love this outfit a lot. I felt so great walking around the beautiful "grounds" of Ravina in it. And I got to wear tights! ♥


  1. You look like such a gem in this beautiful white dress! And I must say that I couldn't relate more to your post...I,too am a senior this year and just turned 18 a few weeks ago. It blows my mind that I am finally the young adult that I always was so eager to be! Growing up is sure strange, isn't it?

  2. This might get old, but I'm going to say it anyways;) Just enjoy your youth for the next couple of years:) No one should rush adulthood. I'm 26 and wish I had stayed a "child" just a little longer.

  3. I could think of something witty for this but, brain is all coldy.
    When I commandeer your desk I am commandeering this dress, just so you know. Wearing it with my converses.
    Yeah, that was odd.

    Love you, DLS. You are a lovely young woman. And hold on, there are new adventures coming.

  4. Oh my word, I am about to DIE I love your outfit so much. Especially the necklace. It adds so much accent to your lovely white dress :)
