Sometimes you just need to stop and breath

Life has been hectic. Hectic is actually an understatement. So yesterday, I took the whole day to just have fun. Here is a peak at my day of play.20121015-122123.jpgOne of my favorite little vintage dresses since it warmed up for the day20121015-122427.jpg

And ended the night with my favorite local boys, Bear Cub.

Like I said things have been HECTIC. Working three jobs and being a large part of my mother’s web blast for her site http://www.InsideandOutwoman.com is very time consuming. I love everything I’m a part of, but it is spreading me a little thin. Twice this week I showered and blow dried my hair, and then realized I didn’t rinse out my conditioner! Proceeding that, I showed up at the airport 24 hours early to pick up my roomie. I think this day to clear my head, was much needed and enjoyed!

The Lou!

We all need a mini vacation sometimes. So I grabbed a friend, packed my bags, and off to St. Louis for two days!


Found free tickets to Metric’s show next door to our hotel

Took Deidre to get her eyebrows threaded for the first time, and she loved it!Got a vegan philly cheesesteak at SweetArts 

Got to act like big kids at City Museum (out of breath the entire time)

This slide left many bruises on my backside¬†We couldn’t leave without going to St. Louis’s free zooA successful first trip to the Midwest I’d say

We’ll be back to “The Lou” real soon

Falling for Fall

 

 

(Modcloth dress, target tights, vintage scarf and boots)

Fall is officially here!

It is by far my favorite season, lets be honest it’s EVERYONE’S favorite season.

Not overly hot/ not wretchedly cold

Beautiful burst of colors everywhere you go

I think its nature’s way of giving you something to look forward to all year.

For me though it is all about the fact that I get to wear sweaters, tights, and boots everyday.

Not to mention its still warm enough to wear them with my dresses, and all those burnt color tones melt my heart.

I also live in Nashville.

Nashville is a city made for my own heart, it completely flourishes during Fall.

Every concert you could ever want to see will be in Nashville in October.

The community also puts a ton of events during fall to get people out of their houses like Live on the green, musicians Corner, Farmers market night market, and so much more.

It is a good thing most of it is free because I will be to busy to work between now and winter!

Boots and pumpkin flavored everything

The weather is starting to feel like Fall!

Today I broke out my Target over the knee boots and Urban Outfitters floppy hat

to add a little excitement to my white vintage dress.

Fall to me means two things:

Boots and pumpkin flavored everything.

So now I’m going to go use The Baking Birds recipe, and make some vegan pumpkin cinnamon rolls to go with these boots!

Busy bee

I swear I haven’t forgotten about the blog!

It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve posted. Which is unacceptable. It’s been 60 hour work weeks, friends having babies, other friends moving away, and a series of guest blogging on nutrition that has kept me away. I did finally get a day off this Sunday, and I just wanted to show you what I wore on my big day off, and of course say hello.

Oh how I love you Sunday Fun day.

Happy 4th of July!

Alright so I’m a little late, but we were all out having fun anyway.

Thrifted patriotic outfit!

B.Y.O.V. (Bring your own veggies!)

My 4th was terrific. I’ve been under a lot of stress lately, and this holiday was just what I needed. We spent the day at the lake, cooked out, and watched fireworks on a hidden bridge. How was your Independence day?

 

105 degree why are you making me wear clothing outfit

I don’t know about where you guys are, but here is smoldering! The last two weeks have been over 100 degrees. I’m from south Floida (where its been in the 80’s) , and I still cannot handle this. I’m an outside kind of girl. Can we go out to eat? Only if we can sit on a patio. Want to go see a movie? How about if we go to Movie’s in the Park. This is not true this week. I’ve planned every day about how to spend as little time outside as possible.

This is my “eventually you have to go outside” outfit.

Thrifted floral dress, purse, and belt

Target sandals
