137. Spare time? What's that?

 cardi - Sisters / skirt - LOFT / sandals - Spring / sunglasses - Rims eyewear

Work and gym classes and homework are piling up on me again. It's almost that time in the work-term where my free time goes goodbye and I start editing my giant report. Only this time, since I'm actually working at an actual job that I actually like, I haven't got the report written. (did I say actually enough yet?)

I took these a couple weeks ago on one of the beautiful sunny days we've been having here in the city! My tripod mount is still on the missing list, and the sun in the back room doesn't make for the best lighting. I deal anyways, of course! Got this skirt on sale on my trip to Florida, I'm excited to try it out with more combinations. Maybe once work is over, I try to keep it tame around the office.

Off doing school work and trying to plan my life. It's not looking so good, but I'll get through!

Til next time!

136. Blocks of color.

cardi - Sisters / dress - Old Navy / bandeau - Walmart / grey flats that I wore to work! 

Today's July's EBEW! I remembered! I meant to take pictures to post this morning, but my mornings are never that organized. Plus I've been missing my tripod mount for about a month, may have to go buy myself a new one so I can take advantage of the awesome weather that's continuing here in my fair city. 

I realized today I do a lot more color blocking than I realize. I love bright colors and wearing several is better. I'm not quite as brave as all the other participants, but I think this is a pretty good start. Don't you? 

Also, look at my room! Yay! It's not brown anymore! Painted on the weekend and I'm in love with it. It's so girly now. Finally. 

Head on over to the EBEW site to check out the rest of the entries!

135. Give a little time to me, or burn this out.

Yes, another Ed Sheeran song. No, it won't stop.

button-down - express / belt from a mexx skirt / capris - Smart Set / shoes (not pictured) AE flats / necklace - from a gift shop in Dublin :) 

What have I managed to lose in gaining a new music obsession? My ability to write full sentences. Lists it is! 

- skipped yoga to clean yesterday. stayed on my laptop instead. yep. 
- realized I may have lost a little weight, or once my monthly bloat went away I feel smaller anyways. good to realize nonetheless. 
- I'm curious what I weigh lately but don't know if I want to find out. 
- I've had this shirt from Express since last April. This was my first time wearing it. I still have a skirt I haven't worn that I bought last Sept.
- every outfit that I've liked lately has included these black pants. need more of them, desperately.  Slightly longer would do, but slim fit and cropped. Ideas/suggestions?

Rant must be over, stuff to do! 

Til next time!

134. Working on it

cardi - Tommy Hilfiger / shirt - Urban Planet / bralet - Walmart / jeans - H&M / flats - LOFT

Things I'm working on: 
- accepting that my closet isn't what I want it to be. 
- taking pictures without a mount for my tripod. 
- figuring out what pieces are and are not work appropriate in summer. 
- going to the gym enough that it's worth the effort
- being more social. 

Guess which one is the most difficult? With the exception of the past weekend, the last one. I'm a hermit, what can I say? 

Very glad to have found a way to wear this shirt. I have super high waisted skinny jeans from H&M that I bought in London, for 10 GBP. They're awesome. My other favourite part of this outfit? The shoes. Sighh. I wish I had a LOFT store closer so I could buy everything. Such is life, guess I'll have to keep traveling. 

What was I complaining about again?

Til next time :)
