And I Guess It's Just as Well

Things that I need to do that I can't summon the will to do:

1) The huge bag of laundry that's slowly getting bigger than my actual apartment. Talk about #daunting
2) Dye my hair. I can no longer bat my eyelashes coyly and lie that it's natural.
3) Stop eating cookies. The salad greens in my fridge are slowly turning a sad brown as cookie crumbs fall onto my white Hanes tee, one by one. Sorry I'm not sorry.

  6. I'm in the same boat on many of these points (including the red hair bit)! The idea of cookies right now is so delicious, but eating healthier is probably better in the long run haha. Cute dress too x

  18. I love this combinations of items! The shirt and necklace were made to be worn with this dress, it looks so natural together. Though, I have to disagree with you. One should NEVER stop eating cookies ;)

  23. Man I am loving all of these fancy J crew necklaces you keep pulling out, they are awesome! I like the layering too, the shape of the dress is adorable and love the feather print. May need to hit up F21 soon for a feel better purchase, since there and thrifting are really all my bank can handle right now!

    My veggies are also turning a nice brown, but all of the pasta and snacks in my cabinet have been eaten!
    Oh well. Hope you're having a great day!
