This weekend I literally did nothing but eat. I'm getting way too comfortable with hiding under all these winter layers, ya know what I mean? On Friday I had a sushi date with my cousin and we spent three hours cleaning out the ocean's fish supply while giggling about bad first kisses and cringing over date stories. Let me tell you, i do not miss being twenty-two. So many awkward college stories, so little time. Afterwards I went to an empty cafe (it was nine o'clock on a Friday- it was a ghost town in there) and listened to some scratchy jazz as I fiddled around with my book. On Saturday my brothers and I went to Chilies and sat in a booth for a couple of hours, with me giving them sage and solemn advice over chicken wings on how to win over their crushes. It's fun being the oldest and the wisest from the three of us, haha.
Speaking of my book- I was so blown away with all your encouragement and support! I wanted to share that I was writing one because I literally couldn't hold it in any longer, but I never expected you all to care so much. I wish we can all just pile together and group hug- you ladies are a special type of amazing :)
And on a less binge-eating note, I have definitely felt my style shift towards simpler things lately. Anyone else feel like they're starting to go towards a different look? Before, I'd wrap myself in as many layers and patterns as I could get my hands on, but now I like things to be a little more streamlined and simple. This full skirt is from Dressed in the Dark, and when it came tumbling out of its box I immediately had a flashback to Phoebe from season one of Friends. The pattern and color was so very her, and all I needed was some chunky earrings and a stack of rings to complete the look. Instead, I decided to tone down the hippie guitarist vibe and went for a turtleneck and buttoned up vest. I was going to leave it at that but there wasn't and clear lines in the outfit, so I belted the vest at the waist. I love the way the belt turned out- it was the perfect touch!
And here are some of my favorite picks from Dressed in the Dark to give you an idea what other goodies they have in stock- I'll never get sick of red toggle coats!
