The last week and a half has been absolutely crazy for me! PARKSHOW last weekend was so much fun, but after the show I was burnt out. I didn't have much time to recover because I was teaching classes on nutrition and exercise in elementary school all week. I have so much respect for teachers after starting this job! It is definitely a lot of work lesson planning, talking non-stop and being active with kids all day. To recover from a hectic week I spent the weekend relaxing and hanging out with my cousin. I have a few more pictures from the weekend that I will share later this week.
On to the outfit. I received this dress from Mikhaila recently who initially picked it out at the NY ModSwap in September. The part of blogging that is quickly becoming my favourite thing is swapping! Swapping with fellow bloggers, going to local swaps, attending swap events in other cites! I really like to see how someone's own style shines through when they wear the same item as someone else. I think it's a great way to build your wardrobe on a budget too.
