I was so deliriously happy with the rain in So Cal this weekend! While everyone else was complaining, I was running to my windows every time I saw the lightening flash and heard the thunder shake our windows. This weekend was spent running errands and giving our apartment a good deep cleaning. We spent Saturday night indulging in a Top Chef catch up marathon, listening to the rain, and ordering in food. So simple, and so perfect.

We may have had ourselves a little rain storm, but it was still super warm out! I love this denim mini skirt I picked up from Crossroads and have so many things to pair it with, but started with this flowy blouse from SheIn for the perfect casual weekend outfit.

Towards the end of our photo session, we got caught in some more wind and the beginning of some more rain. I wasn’t complaining!

I hope you are enjoying your week! I can’t believe it’s almost August! Why does the time go by so much faster the older you get? I am trying to find a way to slow down and enjoy the moment, instead of thinking what’s coming ahead and missing the present.

Getting dressed and realizing that I’ve ended up head to toe in Crossroads finds, thrifted or new merchandise, happens a lot. It’s definitely my first stop, whether I’m looking for something specific or just have an urge to shop. It’s a place that I can go that I don’t have to worry about looking at the price tag and being disappointed and then depressed that I have to leave it behind. I could gush all day!

I’ve worn this outfit multiple times, and it might look familiar because I wore it to the Crossroads Spring Social shopping party a month or so ago and shared some photos on Instagram. It came back into the rotation and I remembered that I never took proper photos!

Also, I think you need to know that the Backstreet Boys documentary is now on Netflix, so you’re running out of excuses to not see it. It’s that simple.

This is me just thinking about watching it. For real. Except at this exact moment, I really am watching it. We don’t really need to explain how happy it makes me, because I’d like you to think I’m a bit more normal than I really am.

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!

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 will never not love a good denim on denim outfit! It is so perfect is so many ways.

These jeans are hand me downs from my Aunt and I was skeptical at first, but I wear them multipe times a week. Would they be considered mom jeans? Maybe cool mom jeans because they’re distressed? Maybe tacky? Whatever they are, I’m a little bit obsessed and very glad her non-returnable online purchase did not work out for her!

Crossroads sent me my new favorite shirt for the Spring, too! I have so many outfits in mind for it. I swear, they know exactly what I’m looking for!

I am headed for a quick trip home to Sacramento this week to see my mom for her birthday and to pick up a few things for our new apartment. With my new work schedule I won’t be able to visit as often, or for as long as I like, so I’ll be enjoying my time home while I can!

How’s your week treating you so far?

I have not been able to say TGIF in a long time and mean it! When I worked at home, and on Saturdays (verrrryyyy early in the morning), I was more thankful for Saturday afternoon naps. This week, however, I am very much into thanking God that it’s Friday!

This photo is from my latest ModCloth shoot. I will share more soon! Stolen from the wonderful Christina Emilie’s Instagram!
I wish all of you babes a beautiful weekend! Please enjoy what made me smile this week! Be forewarned, there are a few tear triggering videos in this listt; happy tears though! I am such a cry baby.
  • Derek Zoolander and Hansel crashed the Valentino runway during Paris Fashion Week and it was like no time had passed at all since 2001! We have to wait an year for the sequal, but this short backstage video may help tide you over.
  • I am perpetually stuck in the 90’s and agree with the fact that 1999 was the greatest year in music. This reads like an overview of my music library.
  • Kids really do say the darndest things! I wish I was this cool when I was little. I wish I was this cool now! I may have a bit more hope for our future now; this little lady has her priorities straight!
  • Dance like no one’s watching! If only we could all have as much fun at work as this flight attendant does.
  • I know old people freak some people out, but I love them and find them so endearing! They have so much knowledge, so much to share, and have loved like we only dream of.  A 70 year old love letter was found in the sleeve of a record, belonging to a WWII vet and made its way back to him. I had to pause this video a few times to cry so many happy, ugly tears.
  • Tom Hanks is really winning the Internets lately: First, he hangs out with his old pal Wilson. Then, he stars in no other than Carly Rae Jepsen’s new music video. Now, he helps the Girl Scouts sell cookies.
  • This may have begun as an advertising gimmick, but the fact that everyone in this small town willingly took their time to take sign language lessons for a month to be able to speak to one hearing impaired man is pretty amazing.
  • I’m a bit behind, but who knew Kevin Spacey was such a great celebrity impressionist! Hilarious!
  •  I apologize for this next one; luckily, you probably still have your tissues handy! I cry at the drop of a hat even thinking about someone close to be passing, and I am so overwhelmed with grief watching this video. How sweet is it for her to get this little bit of help in her dark time.
  • I never went through the college phase of drinking heavily, but I have had my moments. I really resonate with this story of how this woman came out of a year without drinking. I don’t plan on giving it up, but I’m certain that I’ve reach my limits on blackout nights and wasting the next two days paying for it.
  • I am ending this Friday Favorites with a bit of a shameless non-self promotion: My brother’s bar  is nominated for Best Neighborhood Bar in Sacramento and it would mean the world to me if you took 3 seconds to give him a vote. You may not have been there, but you can trust me! Click here!

p.s. I just tried to show my husband the love letter video with the WWII Vet, and I broke down in tears before even pressing play. Seriously, if you’ll only click one link today, click that one.

I don’t wear lipstick often, but when I do it’s BRIGHT. I thought this was a fun way to celebrate making it halfway through the week! Yay or nay? I hardly ever wear lipstick, but a swipe or two definitely helps to brighten up my face and although I can’t see it throughout the entire day, it helps to brightens up my day, too!

To continue on with our boring moving process storyline; we only have a few odds and ends left at the old place and are beginning to settle into the new apartment. The fun part comes next: Decorating! I have absolutely no expertise, or even experience, in decor or anything in the home realm, so the anticipation of how things will come together is very nerve-wracking. Don’t take this has a promise, but it would be a nice reason to begin to share more lifestyle and home content with you, documenting the journey!
