friday ootd

yes, it was 70 and sunny today.  was i excited?  absolutely not.  my apartment was probably 95 degrees when i woke up.  for some ungodly reason i decided to wear my hair down.  the train was uber humid and of course delayed so by the time i got to work this morning, my face was beyond sweaty and my hair was a humid mess.  if i could find a climate where it's 60's and not humid all the time i would be a happy lady.  and that my friends is how you take a beautiful day weather wise and ruin it.  anyways, here's my outfit.  
shoes: sperry (old but you can buy them everywhere still); pants: banana republic sloan slim cropped (current); tank and cardigan: j.crew factory (old); necklace: gift; watch: burberry (old)

these pants are awesome.  everyone should buy them.  they're stretchy but don't stretch out, you know what i mean?  i really wanted the j.crew minnie pants, which are similar, but they have a side zipper.  i loathe side zippers on pants.  these pants are the same style but with a normal button/zipper and i think quite cheaper.  also this cardigan has had it.  it's looking quite worn even from far away.  up close it's even worse.  anyways, i dislike this outfit as a whole but frankly i was sweating this morning and just threw on some clothes so i could get out of the apartment.  pants are a win though.

p.s. i have been watching this video nonstop.  i may watch it every day on the train ride home.  it is amazing.

fitting room round up

last week i checked out ann taylor loft's big 60% off sale.  unfortunately everything i liked was not part of the sale.  isn't that always the way.
i liked the blue tank, not on sale.  i really liked the striped dress (it has a cutout back and you can still wear a normal bra), they didn't have my size.  i loved the lace skirt, not on sale.  i may stalk out the skirt when it goes on sale.  everything else just wasn't doing it for me.  so not really a fun fitting room round up.  i view this as un-fun because i didn't buy anything.  new clothes are fun.  no new clothes is un-fun.

p.s. the met costume gala was last night.  who did this to elle fanning?  who was it?  this is just not right.

elle fanning is supposed to look like this.  no excuses.  play like a champion.

a photo a day

on my 30 before 30 list, number 17 is to complete a 30 pictures in 30 days list.  today is may 1st, so here we go.  i realize there are 31 days in may, but i can't help that i got motivated/remembered to do this at the start of a month that has 31 days.  there's a bunch of different lists out there of what you're supposed to take a picture on each day, but here's the one that i'm going with:


1. You
2. Your Breakfast
3. Something you love
4. Your mailbox
5. Something you wore
6. Something that makes you smile
7. Your favorite quote
8. Your sky
9. Something you use daily
10. Something from your childhood
11. Your favorite school binder - this makes so sense so i'll be substituting something for this
12. Your favorite shoe
13. Inside your bag/backpack
14. Something you’re reading
15. Something that makes you happy
16. Something you see every morning
17. Your water
18. Something you bought
19. Something sweet
20. Someone you like/love
21. A reflection of something
22. Your jacket
23. Something old
24. Your guilty pleasure
25. Something you made
26. Your favorite color
27. Your lunch
28. Your sunset
29. Inside you fridge
30. Nature.

i won't be posting my pictures everyday, but when i'm done, get ready for picture overload.  welp, number one says i should snap a pic of me, myself, and i, so i do what i'm told.
