sometimes, i choose outfit posts based on whether or not my mom compliments my outfit. no lie.
and last week, she LOVED this outfit:
outfit details: shirt - h&m, skirt - old navy, scarf - $5, boots - almost done! :(, belt - my mom's!
here's an added pic of me and my doggie:
because she's so cute.
btw--i am completely obsessed with rihanna's red hair in the only girl video...the song is pretty dope too.
if i had it on my ipod, i would play it on repeat.
and another btw--i opened a shop on bigcartel to sell my double finger rings. items on sale can be viewed here on my finger and are selling here. (don't mind my ghetto pics and layout...i don't have photoshop or illustrator on my laptop so i made it work...)
the final days of my green boots is quickly approaching and i am super sad. i've worn them a lot since last year which means that they are starting to rip. i would be sadder if it weren't for the fact that just today i purchased a beautiful pair of camel colored flat boots thanks to SWIRL.
last night, i was seriously starting to hyperventilate thinking about replacing them. and viola--swirl had the most awesome sale ever today.
in the meantime, i will be wearing and enjoying my green boots.
outfit details: gray dress and tights - h&m, boots - my favorite!, scarf - $5 off the street, new ring - made by me.
and for the record, fahrenheit 451 is amazing. i can't believe that i have never read it in my life.
another fyi--i added 2 boxes to the right side of my blog: one for books i am currently reading and one for books i've read. i just started the list but you can check it out. not sure if i'll backtrack and list all of the books i've read. but for now, you can check it out.
wow. 2 outfit posts in one week. i must have nothing else going on.
outfit details: skirt/dress - f21, sweater and tee - h&m, scarf - $5 off the street, boots - from my sis (i have missed them so much!), green necklace - delia's, locket - thrifted
threw this one in for fun. don't mind my tired looking face.
weather in nyc is getting better...and i am definitely looking forward to the long weekend! looks like i'll be checking out a movie, drinking, sleeping (A LOT), checking out the thrift store and hanging out with friends. oh and work. OH and i promise to take some pics. i still need to harass my bff for pics from last weekend...
i was feeling super BLAH and decided to do something about it. i started the insanity workout.
mr. shaun t is kicking my ass. for the next 2-3 months.
i'm actually doing the missDTM version of the insanity. after a week of doing the workout, i realized that i was gaining results but also possibly jacking up my knee. so now i am doing an every other day/sometimes take 2 days off version of the insanity (with a knee brace, of course!). and it's working.
it's really really working.
i have never sweated so much in my life.
i have never smelled so terrible after a workout before.
and...i've never been so excited about a set of workouts before in my life.
and this is coming from a girl who endured field hockey practice in late august when it was 100+ degrees outside as well as track runs in 6 inches of snow.
i have never been so challenged by a workout in my life.
this is what i look like directly after a workout.
this weather in nyc is depressing. it's been raining, cloudy, gray and just straight up gloomy. so in an attempt to brighten up my day a bit, i decided to wear a bright colorful dress:
with a leather jacket that was a hand me down that i am in LOVE with.
outfit details: dress, belt, boots, scarf and tights - h&m, sweater - gap, jacket - from a friend
btw--i've been wearing my hair slicked back for a few reasons. first of all, my workout routine requires me to workout 6 days a week and it's so intense that i sweat like a beast after so i have to wash my hair. and secondly, this rainy weather is a major bummer for my (already) large hair. so, i throw on the conditioner, pull it back, and call it a day.
