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!

What I thought was going to be a typical boring Sunday, an extra shift at work and maybe finalizing some wedding registry items, turned out to be a really nice date night at The Americana in Glendale.

 We went to pick out wedding bands yesterday afternoon and I only had to try on one to know! I had to leave my engagement ring to be cleaned and fixed; I have a habit of spinning my ring with my thumb since it is a tad too big and it has morphed it a bit so it’s more of an oval than a circle. Oops! I have been reaching to spin the ring ever since I left it behind. I remember when I first got the ring and it took so long to to get used to wearing it everyday, and not it is weird not to have it on even for one day!

After ring shopping, we walked around looking at the men’s wedding bands, and possible men’s suit options; our efforts weren’t as successful as we hoped with those. We shopped a bit, had dinner and then saw Chef, the new movie with Jon Favreau. I love any show or movie about food. I love to eat food, look at food, smell food, and watch people make food. I’m a bit obsessed with food! I’m glad we ate before we saw the movie, or else I’d have left starving and craving all the wrong types of food!

Maxi dresses are still the best go to; so easy! I’ve been looking for a T-shirt dress, long or short, and I am so happy with this one from Cali Free!

What is your summer go to uniform? The first place I look when I’m out shopping is the dresses and specifically maxi dresses. I like to find ones with interesting cuts or shapes, so it doesn’t look like I’m just wearing a sheet, which I would be fine with me, but I like variety too! The slits up this dress make it more unique and a bit, dare I say, sexy; although I wouldn’t wear it in the wind!

I like taking photos when we are out and about, to switch it up from the same old back ally, but it can get a bit embarassing in a busy public space like The Americana.  Sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself a get through it! Ah, blogger problems!

I cannot pass a Free People without going inside!

Hello? Anyone still around?

Excuse my absence. I’ve been sick and have now come to diagnose myself with bronchitis. Last week I felt like I was hit by a big rig; It was like I had the worlds worst hangover for an entire week. Do you know what worse than the worst hangover? The worst hangover without the fun the night before.This week it’s down to sniffles and coughing, but I could probably fill an ocean with the fluid rattling around in my lungs right now. It’s so nice not to have health insurance. I am counting down the days until this wedding of mine; health insurance by marriage!

I am so ready to be healthy again. I never thought I would say this, but I really miss working out and running! I have definitely been lying low, trying to rest up. Usually when I am sick, I keep going so I don’t get behind or miss anything, and then I end up sick for an enitre month. I’m trying hard this time to do it right, but time is really testing my patience!

In other news, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen the other day that I did some extra work on a made for TV Christmas movie with Dean Cain. It’s probably the lowest form of work someone in LA can get, especially considering I was not paid for it. But believe you me when I say it was a dream come true. I have wanted to be in a made for TV Christmas movie my whole life. They are literally one of my favorite things in the world! I am cheese filled Christmas fiend and I was so in love with that day! The best thing is that I got called back to do more today! I am pretty sure there is a good chance my face might make it into the final edit for at least 1.5 seconds.

Is it Christmas yet?

A few things: I look like a watermelon. It is evident that I do not iron my shirts. My necklace is awesome.

This necklace is from Penh Lenh Deisngs, meaning “whole” in the Cambodian language, Khmer, and what makes them so special, is that they are a handcrafted jewelry line that’s working with Cambodian women rescued from sex trafficking. I was really excited to receive a piece of this beautiful line, not only because I think the necklace is beautiful, but for the empowering message it stands for. Penh Lenh’s mission is to empower these young women to pursue their life goals through quality education, vocational training, and advanced career opportunities.

Please check out more from the Penh Lenh collection!

Do you think this cliche pretend walking photo is bad enough to get my on GOMII would recommend not clicking that if you are an easily offended blogger.

Proof of my sickness. Also it may be the first picture anyone has published on their style blog of them mid cough. It’s kind of gross. You’re welcome.

Candy + Clothes. These are the things that make me happy on any given day. I think that’s a true statement for all woman. And people in general.

So. I’m 27 today.

I don’t know what else to say about that. I’m not into celebrating my birthday. Yes, I am one of those people. I appreciate well wishes and cards, and who can turn down presents, but I don’t need, or want, the hoopla. I’ll be honest, my birthday turns me into a brat.

Honestly, I don’t like being disappointed. My birthday always tends to lead to disappointment and I’d rather bypass that and just enjoy a regular day.

So. Let’s move on. I just felt the need to represent the people who don’t like birthdays. I’m not a kill joy; quite the opposite.

27. It’s such an odd age. I am in my late twenties. It kind of makes me want to barf.

If there is an Urban Outfitters Surplus store near you, get there. The entire store is on sale. And they have ping pong, foosball, arcade games, and a photobooth. Win.

We cheated with the photobooth and used our own camera.

I play a mean game of ping pong. Meaning, I am terrible and I am a poor sport.

Candy galore.

The only thing I enjoy about my birthday is that I get to eat whatever I want and I don’t feel guilty about it.

Sometimes I’m lazy. So lazy that I could not even think of a blog post title. Although, that’s more of a lack in the creativity department than the productivity department.

I am also so lazy that I apparently can’t even bother to paint my nails or accessorize my outfits lately. Yes, those are superficial aspects of life, so not necessary, however, this is a style blog, right? I post photos for people to ooh and awe and drool over me share and inpsire, so I should put a little more effort into it, right?

Or maybe this is me being true to myself and my style. I’m simple; I always have been. You’ve all heard the mantra “Less is More”. Not that I don’t wish I had a stash of rings, bracelets, and necklaces to pile on every now and then; I enjoy the occassional arm party as much as the next style blogger. I am just not that patient and tend to be drawn more to comfort and quiet expression.

Wha do you think about the “less is more” style route versus over accessorizing?

I wore this outfit three days in a row. I tend to do that Fridays-Sundays because on the weekends I just grab whatever is on the top of the clothes pile from that week. But, honestly, I’m ready to wear it again already. Silk, printed shorts? Talk about comfort! You can’t get any more comfortable than that. I felt like I was wearing pajamas all day, which is what I actually do if I don’t have any plans for the day.

I cannot be alone in that, right?

This outfit is an all around win.

I’m late! Uh, that’s what she said?

This month’s “What I thrifted…” post is late and lacking. I only thrifted one thing. It was not for lack of trying; I went out looking a few times, but I am trying to be more selective of what I buy, not just to save money, but to create a wardrobe that I actually love.

The only piece that I found in July that I loved was this white, lace dress at Buffao Exchange when I was in Phoenix. I’ve probably worn it at least once a week since I bought it. It is perfect for summer and so easy to style.

I’ve never been one to wear white; I’m clumsy, a little sloppy, and very, very not tan at all, but this dress called to me. And is it just me, or does it make me look a bit tan?

Yeah, I thought it was just me.

I have so many fails from this photo set, that I need to share one early. Happy fail Tuesday!

I am actually a very creepy person.

I think this was me being excited to take a creeper photo of Ugly Mug as he was taking photos of me.

There are several reasons why I love Sundays. One of the biggest reasons are weekly flea markets. I cannot think of a better way to spend a hangover Sunday than perusing what is basically a giant thrift store. I love the handmade treasures, the antiques that you only thought exsisted on eBay, and of course, the clothing. Oh the clothing. It is hipster heaven; I have never seen so many perfectly frayed, high waist denim shorts in my life. And I bought a pair for $15. A pair identical to those sold in stores for upwords of $50.

If you are looking for anything for your home, I recommend checking out your local flea market first. Even if you don’t think your asthetic includes rustic, paint chipped night stand, just wait until you ultimately find the perfect, unique piece. We got a night stand this weekend and I am excited to find more treasures for our new home together.

Can I get a high five for finding this gem of a Free People dress at Crossroads? Sure it has loose threading and the bottom gets caught on the zippers of my boots, but its Free People and so worth it. It is probably more of a winter dress, but I had to wear soon after I found it. I am hoping to squeeze a couple more wears out of it before I would be getting heat stroke walking around in the Los Angeles heat. Also, I cannot say that I won’t rule out cranking up the air conditioner and just wearing it at home.

Also, new bag!

Ugly Mug was so impressed by the Melrose Trading Post that he wants to go every Sunday. That is a Sunday routine that I can definitely get behind. I would also like to take up the practice of brunching. Yes, it is just a fancy way to say that you slept in and have decided to eat a hearty breakfast at lunch time, but it is just the right amount of pretentious that I could use in my life.

Do you have weekend traditions?
