I forgot to name it!

It's coming... tomorrow it will be 88 degrees, and it's still March, by mid-April it will be 100+ every day until the beginning of November.

I'm starting to get in the mood by dressing decidedly summery.

I saw this dress on and I knew I had to have it. Unfortunately, as it is Urban Renewal, the fit is so weird and the buttons permanently lean to the left, but, as with all other Urban Renewal pieces I own, they are so fabulous and worth the strange quirks.

Dress: Urban Outfitters (Urban Renewal)
Jacket: Target
Shoes: Chuck Taylors from 2004
Bangle: the Goodwill by my house

I would also like to introduce two of my accessory mainstays:

1. a sterling Tiffany's pretzel charm


2. an old school Mexican scapular.

Since they both get worn pretty much every day, I want to mention them. The pretzel was a gift from my boyfriend (who is hands-down the best boyfriend in the whole wide world, duuuuh). Although he said I could pick whichever charm I wanted, it was clear that the pretzel was the only one he wanted me to pick :) So everyday I proudly wear a salted silver pretzel around my neck.

The scapular was also a gift. I was admiring my friend Fabian's and he was like "wait here" and after like 45 minutes of utterly destroying his apartment, all the while refusing to tell me what he was looking for, he presented me with it. I have worn it everyday since. It is crudely crafted (in an AMAZING way, I'm not being critical) and consists mainly of a brown string with some green seed beads and two brown felt patches. I love it, and although I haven't practiced Catholicism in over a decade, there is something comforting about having that reminder with me always.

I'd like to say this blahging thing is getting easier, but it really isn't.

Every time I go to the dentist he always says, "Floss every day for three weeks, because it takes 21 days to form a habit." Maybe it's just my dentist, but I swear to God, EVERY time he says that.


Every time I stop flossing right after three or four days (don't judge me).

So what I am getting at is that I will hopefully develop a sort of blahging "habit" within 21 days.

Ok, have lovely days anyone who might see this!


  1. I LOVE this outfit. You rock it. I would NOT rock it, because my not so flat belly wouldn't really look great peeking out of that thing (okay, hanging out of that). Really like the Converse with it.
