kindred spirits.

ever since I watched and read Anne of Green Gables as a young girl, I always dreamed of finding a kindred spirit.  I wanted a Diana Barry to my Anne Shirley.  as of late, it seems my dream has come true.  my dear friend Andrew, who I featured in my last post, is exactly that.  each time we spend time together (since he goes to a university in Virginia, that only occurs in the summer or holidays), it seems even more apparent than the last.  today, it was just the same as always.  I met him at his house, where he took my outfit photos (like the amazing friend he is) and played me a few of his most recent tunes.  then, we spend three hours chatting over iced coffee (mine, of course) and tea (he got vanilla rooibos).  here's what I wore...



naturally, I'm awkward when someone is taking my photos...



top: thrifted | shorts: thrifted | belt: thrifted | boots: thrifted | socks: gift
spoon ring: vintage | brooch: handmade by my great-grandfather

these lovely floral shorts were purchased at my favorite thrift store.  they were only $1!  since floral shorts were on my list that day, I was ecstatic!  I think they were originally from Walmart, which makes them even better!  this top came from another one of my favorite haunts, America's Thrift.  I already have plans to remix it with this skirt.

now, I have an interesting story to share.  today, while consuming delicious beverages with Andrew, I heard someone say my name.  I looked up, and there was my fifth grade English teacher!  we hadn't spoken in nine years, yet he still remembered my first and last name!  considering I was not a trouble-maker growing up (actually, I was usually the teacher's pet, the object of much ridicule), I consider that the mark of a good teacher!  since he's a writer, and Andrew is a writer, and I like to consider myself somewhat of a writer, we all hit it off and continued in conversation for quite a while.  it was oddly refreshing to have grown-up conversation with someone I once saw as much older.  all in all, it was a delightful evening.

well, I have a babysitting job in the morning, so I must be getting to sleep.  goodnight, dears.  xo, kelseylee.
