I think about wearing this t-shirt in high school and I cringe, I think that admitting to being a nerd/geek when I was that age and it just makes me feel slightly anxious.  Not that I had a bad time at high school, not at all - I really had (and luckily still have) the most fabulous friends. We weren't popular kids but we were nice  to everyone and luckily most people were nice back to us. I am so very lucky to have the friends I have, they taught me that all I can be is myself and all I can do is be kind to others - their pretty fantastic ladies.

These days I am more than happy to admit to being a geek, I prefer to watch documentaries then anything else, I am generally in bed before midnight no matter the occasion and am more then happy to debate anything politics related, drink gin and tonics and listening to Taylor Swift as loud as possible when driving in my car. Does this make me a geek? I am not sure but I am more then happy to admit to all these guilty pleasures.

I knew I had to take these photos somewhere that reminded me of high school so these bleachers were perfect. I pretended I was a cheer leader for a little bit even though I have the co-ordination of a sloth - it was fun and it reminded me how good it was to see your best friends every day - to laugh and have fun, I think I need to remember to do that every day- even in my "adult life".

  1. I think you're the coolest geek I know! And those shorts look great on you.

    I'm looking forward to our brunch/blogging chat tomorrow, and I think we definitely should get together to take photos sometime, great idea!


  2. hehe I am most definitely a geek too! Love the tee shirt paired with those cool shorts :) xx

  3. There isn't a lot of things I miss about school, but seeing my friends everyday is definitely one of them!

    Love, Rachel

  4. Cute and geeks are totally cool! :)

  5. I really regret not buying that top when we were there! And those shoes!! Sigh. I'll just have to live vicariously through you, I love the whole outfit and such a great back drop!

    I was only thinking about school yesterday too, we drove past one that had that same blue fence as ours and I was thinking how good we had it back then. Seeing our best friends every day, how awesome was that?! I hear horrible stories of bullying and I'm so thankful I never had to experience that, mostly thanks to fate or whatever it was that's landed me with such supportive girls who are now beautiful young women xx

  6. so want to get me one of those tops!

  7. Love your jumping photo - too cute!

  8. Your a bit cute!!

  9. SUPER cute photos! Love this outfit, it's fun and feminine without being over the top.

  12. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason
    seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole
    thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
