black & floral


Sorry, these photos probably aren't the best I've ever posted. I forgot to set the exposure/shutter speed before giving Christopher the camera and so they turned out really dark. And after a long Monday at work followed by a trip to the gym, I was too tired to do much editing to them :/ (Chris knows how to set that stuff up... I dunno why he won't)


dress/tights/necklace: forever 21
cardigan: target
belt: urban outfitters
cage wedges: MIA via TJ Maxx


We took these at my parents house last weekend after my brother's 21st birthday celebration and a childhood friend's wedding. I really love this dress! It's like a tunic, so I paired it with a belt to give me a waist, but unfortunately in doing so the dress got a bit shorter, hence the tights.

Ugh I am SO tired! I have more to type about but I just feel like my arms are too weak. Haha. I'm so pathetic! I'm going to post tomorrow though about a little personal challenge I think I'm going to try come June 1st!

hipster chic


...or something like that. I was called 4 things today: Motley Crue fan girl, flower-child, weird (by the boyfriend! haha) and tattoo-artist. None of which I ever would've thought of, but I'm glad my outfit sparked interest in my co-workers today!

Things have been everywhere lately. I haven't been very inspired with my outfits until yesterday. And of course I jumped into my gym clothes as soon as I got home and forgot to snap an outfit pic. They were on Instagram, though... and twitter ...and tumblr.

Chris and I are headed to Mobile for the weekend! I hope some of my friends will find me worth a trip out of the wood-work to see me. If nothing else, I get to see a long-time childhood friend marry her high school sweetheart, AND it's my lil' bro's TWENTY-FIRST birthday! I am buying him a shit-ton of alcohol. He needs it. I'm sure you've all seen or heard of the tornados that ripped through much of the southeast, and one city hit the hardest was Tuscaloosa, AL. My brother happened to be in the middle of that storm, but luckily the only thing lost was his beloved truck. So now, truckless, my parents have to go pick him up 4 hours away and bring him back to Mobile to help him try to find a car and get him back to work.

Have a lovely weekend!
