An Apology to the Salad Dressings in My Fridge


Ranch. Thousand Islands. Zesty Italian. Thank you for coming. I wanted to gather you guys today to come out and say what we were all thinking these past few weeks. I led you guys on.
 And even though I know it doesn’t mean much to you- Ranch, no, please don’t tear up. Zesty, can you pass a tissue please? God, this is hard. Ok, like I said, I know this must be coming out flat to you but I didn’t think that this would happen. I thought I was stronger than this; I thought that this time I wouldn’t stray.  But who can resist that siren song of grease or the plump curves of a burger bun?
 A woman stronger than I, that’s who. I know we had plans together- long term plans of young plum tomatoes we’ll now never get to see grow, balls of lettuce we’ll never get to explore, crouton flavor adventures we’ll  now have to cancel. It’s hard to admit but it’s true- we won’t make it. I just can’t stick to our relationship plan. The George Clooney in me just isn’t ready. Not when it’s summer and hotdogs are sizzling naked on grills and beef jerky is waiting for me on every corner when I’m drunk.
 Our day will come soon, but it’s just not yet. So this is goodbye.  I’d stick around and try and console you, but a hot bag of chips is waiting for me outside. Take care.

Now back to fashion:
Dress (worn as skirt): topshop
Shirt: market in Thailand
Boots: topshop (recent!)

  22. HAHHAHAH OMG YES.
    This is So good. I 100% feel you! I thought I could at least eat healthy for the TWO WEEKS before my Mexico vacation, and i was on a really good roll Monday and Tuesday. Then there was a thunderstorm on Wednesday and I was grumpy and got a HUGE burrito and a whole bag a chips to go with it. My healthy eating sprees last 3 days top. Oh well! Its summer and we are still young and need to have fun!
    Now to the fashion- I love that dotty top, so cool that its from a market in Thailand! And those boots are seriously going to be perfect for transitioning seasons (or really any time)!
    Happy friday girl! Here's to...delicious fatty foods.!

  27. Ahaha, I love this. I should probably have the same talk with my salad dressings... I don't know if I could handle though. That and I'm too busy stuffing my face with burgers, hot dogs, bacon, and cookies. Also, the colors in this look are too great. I absolutely love that top.

  39. I am the same way every month I promise myself I won't indulge, I will have restrictions in how I eat and how much I drink..but it takes me 5 secs to forget all my promises and over indulge in anything I desire. No self control for this girl so try your best!
