FACT.

"If your shirt isn't tucked into your pants, then your pants are tucked into your shirt." Some other quick facts about this day is that these photos were taken in 96 degree heat, I'm wearing a lined blazer, jeans, and have a marshmallow tucked in around my waist. We found a spot outside a Goodwill store, out of the direct sun......................................... but y'all, it. was. hot. as. balls. I sweat my little heart out and I fake laughed at power lines.  All in all, it was a huge success. Yuge.









Blazer: This a cropped tuxedo blazer I bought from Forever21 in 2012.  It was super cheap but well made. I didn't start wearing it until last year.  It's easily one of my favorite pieces.
Jeans: I bought these jeans from Dress Up Boutique - they're the high waisted jeans and $36.99. They are super comfy, stretchy and are a recent purchase.  Like within the last 2-3 weeks.
Tee: This a Junkfood brand tee I found online at F21.
Purse: TJMaxx (2015)
Heels:  Jessica Simpson (2016)


Consignment finds

I've recently discovered a consignment shop near my house that is theeeee bomb.  I've bought several pairs of jeans lately: Citizens of Humanity, Paige Premium, and Joe's Jeans - all three pairs of jeans, basically new, for under $100.00............. total.

I bought this little tunic at the same consignment shop for $11.00 and paired it with black shorts, a lace bralette, black sandals, and 25 lbs of necklaces.






I have no selfie control.

Clearly.  Here's a couple of weekend photos from the last several weekends.  Who wears jeans and sweaters in 90 degree heat?

This girl.  

That's who.

Have you ever had a dream that you, um, you had, your, you, you could, you'll do, you, you wants, you, you could do so, you, you'll do, you could, you, you want, you want them, to do you so much, you could do anything?

Hey girl heyyy.  Man, it's been 3 months already - my bad. I think that you guys are going to have to realize that nearly every post will begin with................. "sorry, I've been busy."  This is always true, but I am trying to make more of an effort.  However I don't follow rules. I follow dogs. On social media. I have however found two (two!) "Instagram husbands".  So I guess you could say that things are definitely looking up haha.

Sooo I live near the cutest old little town that has been revitalized which has made for a quick and easy backdrop for pictures. And there's me, alone in an alley, laughing at my own jokes. That's right guys, living the dream right here.

99 problems but a pattern ain't one.

4.27.17

I've been slacking..... sort of. With posts anyway. Life just got busy. And in the book of life, that's just how shit rolls. You feel me? I had a root canal. Oh wait, let me back up. I broke (and broke off) my bottom back molar eating................a chip. Then I had the root canal. Which then became abscessed and required three additional trips to the dentist and a half swollen/half lopsided face for a week. So in. So hot. So nowww.  I was not #abscessed about the whole situation. See what I did there? Seriously theeee worst localized pain I've ever been in.  I've been slammed at work preparing for closings - schedule is stacked through May. Yolo. I've been painting/redecorating/updating the lower level of my house - after 10 years it was time for an update. AND my beautiful niece made her debut last Tuesday and she is theeee sweetest little angel. Oh I just love her so!!

I've worn a couple of outfits which were photo worthy during this time so I'll just do what I normally do when nobody sees me at the grocery store on Sunday, I'll wear the same outfit tomorrow, k?  I'll wear again and post. Swerve. Shit, trying to remember what I wore though?? I'll figure it out. You can trust me (don't ever trust anyone that says you can trust me.  Except for me. DISCLAIMER: sometimes.)



Button down:  F21
Jeans - Express
Shoes - Target, circa 2012. (I need another pair. They're getting pretty worn out.)

Outfit Post

It's the end of the month and quarter and today has been busy. I've got nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada. But this. I got this:







Blouse - F21 (I have a problem with blouses. I have a ton of them. I can't quit them. They're so easy to pair literally anything with.)
Jeans - TJMaxx (these are Abercrombie.  I found these back in Feb and snatched them up. Went back to TJMaxx two weekends ago and saw one pair, exact same pair I had, on clearance for $16.00. Sold!)
Heels - Nordstrom (Halogen. They have fringe. Enough said.)
Purse - Windsor Store

"Me", by me.

I just wanted to give you an insight into my personal thought process while taking outfit pics:


“Fix hair – stand tha – not that way – ok that looks ok – damn I got a big head – ok – stand thi – shit – ok turn a little – holy shit I’m sweating – my hair, dammit – ok, fix hair – ugh stand up straighter – that one might be good – ok you look crazy -  look less crazy in the face – shit should I smile – ok that looks weird – nice gut - put shoulders back – maybe frontal – ok looks like I’m trying too hard – eyes looked a little crossed in that one – hold phone farther away – fuuuuck I’m sweating – flip hair right – flip it back to left – arms are tired - ugh don’t move – don’t want to lose place – ugh I’m sick of this – just another one – oh shit that looked ok – one more – nope.”

Sincerely,
Me









Shirt - GAP (I bought this shirt from Goodwill for $4.00.  It is a men's size large. I am not a men's size large. So I pulled out my sewing machine, ran a seam up both sides of shirt AND down the inside/and down the length of both sleeves........ and voila! Super easy.)
Skirt - Forever 21 (I bought this skirt this past Feb - $17.90.  I mean, really. And it has pockets.)
Heels - Jessica Simpson (D'Orsay style pumps - I bought these at Nordstrom last year. I have these in nude too and are easily some of my fav heels.  They go with errrrything.)

White on white



Blazers.  Are they still a thing?  What about a hole in the crotch of your pants?  Asking for a friend. 





Blazer – Forever21 (circa 2012)
T-shirt – Target (bought one size up)
Boyfriend Jeans – Charlotte Russe (I think I bought these in 2011… I. love. them. I’ve sewn these pants up too many times to count. I’m still on the lookout for another pair. In the meantime, I will keep sewing these up until I can’t anymore.)
Heels – Steve Madden.  (I bought these last year.  Buy one, get one free type deal.  Baller on a budget style.)

New year, old me.

Hi. Anyone there?

6 or 7 years later.  What the hell have I been up to?  Well, let's see, I got dressed a couple of times. I stopped plucking my eyebrows. And I took a lot of naps. It's been pretty successful.


Anywhooo, so lets see if I still know how to post. I did find my password after all.
