I have been contributing to the Crossroads Trading Co blog weekly for the past couple of months. Have you been keeping up?

This week I shared my four favorites tips for cleaning out your closet, inspired by the newly released Crossroads summer buying guide! Be sure to check out the blog, and catch up if you’ve been slacking!

June gloom has come early! It’s been gloomy and almost on the chilly side in LA lately and I could not be more in love with it!

Summer is right around the corner and my weekends are becoming full with road trips, family gatherings, birthdays, and visions of the beach, barbeques, and probably many weekend afternoons thrift shopping and antique fair hopping. Our little home is finally coming together and we’re looking for a few more unique pieces to add and LA antique thrift stores, flea markets, and antique fairs are almost overwhemlingly stocked. If I can figure out indoor photography, perhaps I will share some photos of my favorite areas when we are finished! I would love to be able to add more life style posts to this blog; it’s just the time needed to so that I need to find!

I’ve had this dress for a couple years now and this is the first time I’ve worn it. I don’t know why because seeing these pictures reminds me how much I loved this outfit and I just want to keep remixing it! I tend to collect thrifted items, even when I have no idea how to style them, but when I figure it out, even years later, I’ll live in the damn thing!

Other things, I keep for years, even when they are literally falling apart, wearing them day after day. Like this jacket; it almost looks like it’s intentional, the grunge look. Not so, this jacket has just been overworn and is showing its age. Despite the little faux leather flakes that follow me around when I wear it, I love it just as much as when it was new. It is the perfect amount of worn in, and I think the wear almost adds to the image.

I hope I’m not the only one who has strange shopping and clothing habits. You should share yours in the comments to make me feel less like a hoarder!

I’m. So. Tired. Good thing it’s Friday! I am more than happy to be an old lady and stay in on a Friday night. If I don’t have plans by the time I get home from work, I am so that person who immediately changes into pajamas. I hope that you are staying comfortable and warm in your pajamas tonight. Or, you know, having a life and going out like a normal person.

Also, I finally caught up on Grey’s Anatomy and cried like a little bitch. I was embarassed for myself on how sad I felt (feel still, actually).

Instant camera fun!

It’s May. Like, almost halfway through the year. What? Am I really getting to that age where time has started to go by so fast that each month I can’t believe it’s already a new month? The good news? We’re halfway to Christmas. YES, I am totally one of those people and I am totally not ashamed.

Another type of person I am? A Class Passer! I was debating signing up for the last month or so, and I pulled the trigger today! There’s nothing wrong with my regular gym (though, I did just type “there’s nothing fine”, so maybe subconsciously I’m not too happy with it!); but I am in love with pilates, barre classes, and Pop Physique and Class Pass allows me to take these type of classes whenever I want for less than a fraction of the cost! Win!

Does anyone else have Class Pass? How have you liked your experience?

I am all for comfort these days. Well, any days really. If I can throw something on and not have to be tugging on it all day, it gets priority in my closet! This Green Longsleeve Backless Casual Dress from Sheinside is just that and it’s perfection!  A breezy tee dress is all I need!

I love the cutout in the back of this dress!

I hope you’re winding down from your work week and gearing up for a beautiful weekend!

I am so excited with my Crossroads finds at their Spring Social shopping party in West Hollywood last night! Unfortunately, it got too dark before I was able to take outfit photos, but I plan to recreate it this weekend and share next week.

Do you know Amelia from Clothes Horse NYC? If not, you should.

I hope you enjoy a few things that made me smile this week!

  • My husband has hit a career high and I am so proud of him! He has edited the trailor for the new documentary, Fresh Dressed, featuring Kanye West, Sean Combs, and Pharrell Williams!
  • Sacramento is better than you think it is!
  • I heart Snapchat and I wish my Snapchat friends were more talented.
  • Speaking of Snapchat, watching “elders” learn about it and how to use it reminds me of myself. I am terrible with technology and I think I could go without it. But as long as it’s in my hands, I am also happy with it!
  • I know the rioting is terrible, and I am not here to get political, so I will just leave this here: This mom knows what’s up.
  • This is the sweetest surprise and the prettiest dress!
  • Jason Alexander recorded the most amazing voicemail message for Kat Dennings and I’ve never been more jealous.
  • I can’t even speak about Grey’s Anatomy right now; 1, because I have refused to watch the last couple of episodes and 2, because I am pretending not to know what I know even thought I haven’t watched said episodes. So let’s just reminisce about Christina Yang instead.
  • Straight Teen Asks Gay Best Friend To Prom: self explanatory, and just as sweet as it sounds.
  • I don’t know where they came up with any of the information on my parody Wikipedia page, but I now have new goals in life.

Happy hump day!

I knew going into this week that it would be a long one, so I am super happy that we are half way through and in just a few days the weekend will be here to go by way too quickly, and start all over again!

These photos were taken super quickly on our way out for the night, while we were being yelled at by the owner of the house behind me. All she could see was a man taking photos, pointed in the direction of her home. I totally understand why she was weary at first! Luckily, we cleared things up and she actually cheered me on afterward. It may be time to find another new quick photo spot!

Yes, I got this jacket at Wet Seal; don’t judge me! I don’t discriminate when it comes to shopping. And it was so many years ago, back when it was appropriate for me to step foot in there.

Sneak peak of Monday’s post.

One of my best friends is coming into town today to visit me for the weekend and I am so excited! Unfortunately for her, our apartment is a disaster zone with two sets of furniture, old and new, hanging out. If we were 6 years old, it would be great for fort building support. Okay, oaky, I would totally still enjoy that now.

What are your weekend plans?

Here are just a few things that caught my eye on the Internets this week!

  • The only thing you need to know in life is that there is going to be a Full House reunion show.
  • Ok, maybe one more thing: April 20th marked the 22nd year for the Backstreet Boys!
  • Courteney Cox brings out her inner Monica Geller on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
  • Cassey Ho, YouTube’s master Blogilates resident shared this powerful video. The comments on the video are even more telling of how skewed women’s vision of “perfect” is.
  • Speaking of YouTube, apparently it’s been 10 years since the very first YouTube video has been posted. Watch it here. I’m glad things have gotten a bit more exciting.
  • Have you ever taken a barre class? Have you noticed that men don’t really attend those types of classes?This man did; here’s what he thought. Hint, a key word is “miserable”.
  • The blogger behind The Whole Pantry is a huge liar and kind of a terrible person.
  • I am guilty of being a part of the fitness cult on Instagram.
  • How would you feel if you shared a name with one of the most famous people in the world?
  • I am hoping this isn’t a publicity stunt, but I am so curious about all this Bruce Jenner hoopla!
