Dress: Unknown; Vest: Narcissist; Belt: ASOS; Sandals: Forever 21; Bag: Miele Bianco; Necklace: Express


It is freaking HOT out. I mean, seriously, June 3rd and by the time it's 7AM, it's already 20 degrees. I am NOT complaining though - I love it! In fact, I have been getting up at 630AM just to go swimming in my pool, it's so gorgeous at that time and swimming for a half hour is so much more enjoyable than a half hour run.

These balmy, hot, dry days are perfect for my hippie state-of-mind (hippie brought on by Sienna Miller's style and my eternally wavy hair).

I scored that vest at my clothing swap party I had last Saturday - it was a success, by the way, and pics will be shared shortly. A friend of mine (whom also likes theme dressing, as I do) saw the vest and said, "I wish I could wear that without people asking me what the hell I was doing" (it wasn't her normal style). I thought the same and promptly grabbed it. I don't own any vests and this one screamed parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme to me. An added bonus is that it was one of my friend Hannah's (Narcissist) designs - she made it! (or an intern did, whateves).

Thanks for all your support on the job front. I'm just gonna work hard at my current position till October and keep my eyes open for opportunities along the way. Again, I like my bosses and I like my ROLE and I like coming to work. But I don't like the way the company is going one bit, so I guess I should use this time to move on.

PS We are closer to my 500th post! Considering I started this blog three years ago while in Journalism school, I should have more but let's just say I used to be a VERY lazy blogger :)

Anyhoo, great prizes coming up next week, including this gorgeous forever 21 dress - stay tuned for that!

I am so jealous of the nice weather! Here it's rainy and cold (like under 10 in the evenings.)

I'm still sending ya good luck vibes with the job thing. I'm sure that it will all work out though. :)

That outfit just screams summer to me. I love more Bohemian looks. And that vest is absolutely gorgeous.

Sorry about your job. Things haven't been good for a lot of people this past year. I have relatives who were laid off and haven't been able to find anything. And these are skilled college educated people. Many places use this excuse of a recession to cut things from employess. My husband was hit hard (but I won't go into it) I'm just happy he still has a job.

On another note: I love that vest! I'm glad you took a close up picture of the pretty floral pattern.

And ya, I was up at 7:30am as well and it was sick hot out already. Love it!

Amelia said...

What a score! That vest is perfect. I love the floral and scalloped detail.

I'm definitely wishing my parents had gone for the house with the pool when they were house-shopping 14 years ago. I guess they couldn't have known how much I would need it now.

Great outfit! Lucky, we have june gloom here in california. Is that your backyard? I love the flowers. I wish I had an area like that to take pictures at. If I went into the apartment courtyard, all my names would think I was wierd!

Wow, working out in the morning. That's awesome!

BTW, what post is it where you talk about a new job? I must have missed it. Good luck!

Shin said...

You look so pretty in white! You're one of the prettiest bloggers! I think I might be in the same boat job wise but I still like it but there's so much drama between my bosses. I wish you the best of luck in finding the dream job! xxoxoxo

It took me a long time to realize you don't do degrees in farienhiet (sp?) so I was all wondering why you said 20 degrees was hot. :)

I love this look, so soft and dreamy.
