Hellooo again!  It has been almost a month since I last posted, however if you follow me on instagram you might know that I've been in Paris!  (Then, after I was in Paris, I visited my aunt and cousin in Michigan.)  I spent about 11 days wondering around the beautiful city.  Being able to spend almost two weeks in just one place, rather than traveling around to different cities, it really helped me feel as if I were a local.  
While I was there my dad actually took my senior photos!  My dad is a film professor and practically a professional photographer, so it was a great opportunity to have my dad take the photos while having the most beautiful backdrop in the world.  So today I'm sharing with you, before anyone else (other than my mother and my aunt), my senior photos.
My dad's favorite is the one that he edited so there's five of me walking.  My favorite is the first picture, but I also adore the one of me in front of the wooden door.
I had a lot to decide for what to wear for my senior photos.  Most of my friends wear basic things like jeans and t-shirts, but I knew from the start that I didn't want to wear anything like that.  I don't know why, but I somehow got it in my head that I wanted a silver slip dress.  As I've mentioned numerous times before, where I live doesn't have the best shopping selection, so it was no surprise that I couldn't find one in town.  What I did find surprising was that I couldn't even find one online that I liked.  Luckily my mom knows how to sew, so I found a pattern and some fabric that I liked, and it actually turned out gorgeously.  I then paired it with my lace kimono and leather jacket so I could switch back and forth between the two.  Finally I decided I would wear my black ankle boots that look good with both the jacket and the kimono.  And, of course, I had to add my almost signature red lipstick.

I have more pictures to come from my trip!  Also school starts for me next week,and it will be my senior year!!!
