Going Out with a Bang

Did you know that in ten weeks we will be leaving Oxford?

UK masters programmes are only one year.

So, we'll be packing up our little flat
that overlooks the Thames,
and moving on to life ahead

I haven't wanted to bring it up yet...
because honestly,
it makes me too sad to think about leaving.

This year has been the best year.

Not only have Tyler & I grown so close to each other
living here on our own,
but we've grown really close to our friends in Oxford.

Oxford is a beautiful city
full of dreamy spires and charming nuances...
but what always keep it perfect to us
are the friendships we have made here.

(Isn't that how life should be? I think so.)

But, enough with the sadness.

The tears & goodbyes are still weeks away,
and there are adventures to be had in the meantime... and parties.

Lots & lots of parties!

While our budget is way past, long gone, blown to crap tight...
I'll be dressing up in pieces I already have.

But just as Oxford is known for it's dreaming spires...
so will I keep dreaming while I'm here.

Here are some looks that I'm longing to wear...
but our students bank account just can't bare.

silver sequins, mustard pumps | lacey lovely, satin peeptoes | glittery goodness, gold-lined heels


  1. aaah many joyful moments are awaiting for you and Tyler Lauren, I'm sure about it! and I hope all these are in London ;)
    ps: that 1st sequin dress has been my dream too!

  2. This will be a lovely time in your marriage to look back on one day.

  3. LOVE that first dress! i hope you two have a FANTASTIC time celebrating and dont worry i am sure you'll make the best out of wherever you go next! xoxo jillian:: stop by! i'm hosting a jewelry giveaway

  4. How cool that you got to experience life there for a bit. I love your dress choices and you would be radiant in any of them. My personal fave is the black lace.... ooh la la! xo

  6. Oh where are you two heading after Oxford? I'm sure you'll put something fabulous together for your going away parties, regardless of budget. These are gorgeous!!

  7. I have no doubt you will look gorgeous at all of your parties, with our without these looks!

  8. Aww, I'm sad to see your leaving! I've been living vicariously through you. Where will you plant your roots next?

  9. Well, that is just not long enough! I can't believe you will be leaving so soon. Makes me sad for you.
    I feel ya about a student budget. We have one right now and I think we always have. Makes for a lot of dreaming. ps... that middle dress is absolutely fabulous!

  10. Hard to believe your time there is coming to an end, but you've garnered amazing memories! And to think you were there for Wills and Kate's nuptuals! My husband spent a semester at Oxford (St. John's) and talks so fondly of his time there. Sounds like a wonderful place. :)

  11. Whaaaaat, I didnt know that?! So where do you go next?! Back to the U S of A?

  12. I am excited to read about your next adventures though because with Aspiring Kennedy its certainly never boring! Good luck with wrapping up the year.
