MARCH MADNESS


The nascence of March and all of its' madness has circumvented humanity the last couple of weeks.  And while I am no longer in the running for that billion dollar check, I am still in the running for a Jr. Whopper in my tournament pool (beginner's luck is a beautiful thing!).

After a full day of taping pieces of my heart back together from all the game upsets this weekend - I decided some therapy would be necessary so I dragged the boyfriend to see Divergent with me!  Thankfully so, as the onscreen performance of Theo James was the perfect remedy for my low spirits and just what I needed to get my mind off of Jr. Whopper distress for a couple hours.

Temps were not in Spring's favor this day, so I really dressed for comfort.  I purchased this sweater 4 or 5 years ago while I was on vacation (mainly, because I just wanted to buy something while I was on vacation. I spent way more than I should have on it) and have only wore it a few times.  It's the perfect piece to throw over any outfit for warmth and comfort. It will likely be on repeat as both warmth and comfort have been scant this year.  I may just change my blog name to '500 Days of Winter'. That or something more palpable...like 'I Take Awkward Photos & Think I'm A Stand Up Comedian But Really No One Thinks I'm Funny'.

Old School


There will never be a generation that grew up in a better time than mine. The 90's aeon, with its classic cartoons, TV shows & fashion frivolities, were nothing short of  amazing. Not to mention the heavy rise of pop culture during this time. Seeing this t-shirt brought back all sorts of memories of childhood, as TLC was (and still is) one of my favorite girl groups of all time. I can't even begin to explain how 'Waterfalls' got me through my tragicomic 1 week relationship with my 1st grade boyfriend. Mainly because the boy's name was Jason and I thought the lyrics sang "don't go Jason waterfalls".


Paired the over-sized tee with a bandanna print button up & I befittingly favored the leader of a blood gang (henceforth me taking the photos on my back porch opposed to the front one this time).  I'll be the first to admit this is a predictable outfit for me as beanies, tees & leather, are orthodox for my every day ensemble. I've vigorously tried to part ways with my past, but I just can't seem to get away from always wanting to emulate a homeless man #stayingtruetomyroots.

Latest & Greatest





Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was filled with things I was supposed to do and rain checks to the gym.  In other words, it was a lazy weekend for me :)  I'm officially on Spring Break from school so I've been preparing myself to be mentally and physically dormant this week.  The boy and I decided not to go anywhere this year since his parents recently surprised us by letting us know they booked a trip for us in August!  We will be going to Belize, Jamaica, and Cozumel!  It will be my first time leaving the country so I. AM. SO. EXCITED!!  Meanwhile, I’m enjoying my pseudo beach (aka bed) and my daily margaritas (aka lemon water).

In recent news - I've entered into the deepest phase of shoe mania.  What was supposed to be a one-stop-shop for a new pair of work heels recently ended up being a one-too-many-stops shopping experience.  I couldn't help myself, as each of my finds was under $30!  I even told the cashier to keep the change when he rang me up.  No. No, I really didn't.  I thought about it, but I needed lunch money.  Staying true to my black palette, here's my latest & greatest: 



1. Vince Camuto Heels, $29
2. Ralph Laurel Fringe Boots, $25
3. Nike AFI Light High Top Sneakers, $20
4. Nike Air Max Sneakers, $27
