Hello everyone!

So this was just a little outfit I pieced together to wear today. I actually thrifted the blouse for two dollars this morning while out shopping with my mom. I love tie neck blouses (I have three!), and an olive green one is just what I needed. Also, it's actually very unusual for me to wear light wash, and flair jeans. I guess I was feeling the 1970's vibe I guess today! On Monday I'm going to wear a very similar outfit to school, but I plan on wearing dark olive green jeggings I purchased tonight from Target instead! Can you tell I'm on an olive green kick?

So this morning was very important for me because it was my first therapist appointment that I've had in five years, For those of you who don't know, I suffer from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder.) I used to go to a therapist to help with my OCD, but it got better so I stopped going. Within the past year, however, my OCD has been just getting worse and worse. Actually to the extent where it's just starting to take over my life. My OCD is not a mild case, but a very serious case and I thought it was time to seek professional help again. Going to the therapist this morning really helped me, and I plan to continue going to help me with my OCD problems. I used to be so ashamed of this disease I have, but I have learned to accept and deal with it the best I can. I openly talk about my struggles with anyone, and I think that actually makes my fight against OCD stronger. I'm praying to God that he helps me start to overcome this nightmare I've been having to deal with lately. I have really good feelings about this therapist though, and I think she is really going to help :)

Hope everyone is doing great!
With much love, Lauren.

I lOVE your outfit! you make jeans look glamourous too!!!

I hope everything starts to look up for you. I can't imagine what it must be like to suffer from OCD. I had a friend with the disease and it just controlled her whole life.

I absolutely love the olive green blouse. You look so cute with it paired with light wash jeans and that ultra pretty trench.

I am LOVING this outfit, Lauren! You pull off all generations so well, but this 70s-inspired look is even more fantastic than usual.

I hope things with your new therapist go well-- starting therapy again in and of itself is such a huge, important step! I'm a little bit partial since I'm in school to become a therapist, but it can really be the catalyst for big huge positive life changes and I truly hope that it is that for you, lovely :)

I love your whole outfit...and I can't wait to see your new jeggings! The coat is a great touch in this outfit:)

I'm sorry about your OCD, it sounds like such a terrible thing to have. You must be making progress right now though if you can manage to let it out on your blog! I hope things start improving and getting better for you...:)
