not a's a "see you later!"

it's a sad day, folks.

one of my bff's that i've known for 10 years (since college) is moving away to wisconsin. WISCONSIN. i'm not gonna get all sappy and sad on my blog but you should know how bummed (and sad) i am about this, even though i know it will be an awesome opportunity for her.

so, in honor of my friend, here's an awesome pic of us at our first ever holiday ball back at pratt:

she's the chica in the pink while we're all in our black attire. gotta love the pink.

oh...and i will be going to wisconsin for some cheese + fresh brewed beer. you best believe it.

happy birthday to my oldest friend in the entire world...

the person who i'm not actually related to that i've known the longest is my bff/cousin (he's a fake cousin), chris. yes, i just shouted out his name on my blog. he better get over it.

to show how utterly dorky we were back in the day, here's an awesome pic from what i believe is our kindergarten graduation:

we're the dorks in the matching hats.

happy birthday, chris! i miss you lots and lots.

now i'm gonna go eat some bacon for your bday. bacon that looks like this:
(i really did buy bacon just for you! xoxo)

8.17.11 inspiration

if you follow me on tumblr, you know that i save tons of random pics. here are some of my recent favorites and why:

 ...true love is beautiful.
 ...this illustration kicks ass.
...this shirt + the pants = perfection. i need more outfits like this in my life.
...this tattoo kills it. so beautiful.
...i am 100% obsessed with the print on this skirt. it's because i am an astronomy nerd.
...this whole outfit is amazing. the long dress + shirt + flip flops. i need.
...this is me and the boo. and my munchin, dunkin.

on a staycation. 
today included lunch with my mentee so i threw on one of my favorite work skirts with a short top to see what that would look like. my belly button decided to play peek-a-boo in these pics but i kinda love the effect:

outfit: skirt & shoes - f21, top - old navy (i cut this from a sweatshirt i had), turquoise ring - banana republic, pinky ring - from when i was a baby

lately when i drive around in the car, old tlc songs have been playing on the radio. my fav? -

pants on the ground!

i HAD to take pics of my outfit today since i rarely wear pants (if you count leggings as pants then i wear pants often...otherwise, no pants for me!).

outfit details: pants & shirt - h&m (from last year but i swear i saw these a month ago at h&m), sandals - f21, necklace - modcloth

my sister and i were really feeling my work outfit today. i might really need to pick up more skirts like this:

 outfit details: skirt - f21, shirt - h&m, belt - my mom's, necklace - vintage, earrings - gift, ring - banana republic

 swinging around in this skirt is SO MUCH FUN.

second of the monthhhhhhhhh

received a ton of compliments about my dress today...and i was feeling good about my outfit except for the mixing of patterns. i wore it anyway to see if i liked it by the end of the day but i'm not sure i did.
 outfit details: sweater - vans, dress - UO
 i also wore my spanking new camera necklace (from f21) and some girl on the train complimented me and then her friend actually touched my longer necklace. i wanted to be like, "WHAT!!!!" but she was kinda young so i had to let that go.
the pattern up close...

TGIA! (thank goodness it's august!)
although, i have a feeling things are about to get verrrrrrrrrrry interesting in the life of DTM...
