Photo Friday...but it's really monday :Amanda & Allie

 So I totally haven't been keeping up with Photo Friday, but I'm making up for it now and it WILL eventually be weekly (probably not... oh well)
This past weekend, I did a super fun shoot with two best friends who are upcoming high school seniors, Allie and Amanda. Here are some of my favorites so far :)

Skirt & Earrings: Forever 21 Shirt: H&M 
 As you know from here, I wasn't home this past Sunday, and I had to include Gabbi in this outfit post because she looked too cute!

just updating: instagram style

Last Monday night/early early Tuesday morn:
I got to spend some QT with Louisa before sending her off to the motherland that is Utah

 (please excuse my 4 A.M. lack of makeup and hair) 
Ever since my 6 and 1/2 hr hair appointment last fall, I've dreaded going to the salon.
 I finally got it done (and in under an hour!) 
Because it was the same day I dropped Louisa off and babysat for 8 hrs, I may or may not of fell asleep in the bad

Relaxing on day off from babysitting :)
got some cafe rio (soo excited that it's making it's way over from the west) with Cydney after doing a photoshoot for C.R.O.W.N project (check it out, it's awesome)
Also got some free meal cards (the highlight of my week)


More babysitting

Should've taken pictures but went laser tagging with Cydney, Spencer and Tyler. It was really fun. It's also the best place to people watch (totally witnessed a middle school couple's breakup/makeup convo waiting for our turn, gotta love it)
 fro-yo and baptisms with my homegirl, Emily :) (we missed ya kelly)

 gotta get a hair pic
 Spent some QT with Gabbi before doing a shoot in Richmond
It was a long week, but tomorrow's my last day of work so I'm excited to spend the rest of my summer doing some real important things (aka working on my tan and sleeping)

that ONE pair

Top: Forever 21 Skirt: The Limited 

I'm sure that every girl has that ONE pair of shoes in which the story goes like this:
girl sees cute shoes in the back of her closet
realizes that she hasn't worn them in a while
wears them
feet are dying after 2 hours
tells herself to never wear them again
stuffs them in the back of the closet
months go by
girl sees cute shoes in the back of her closet
(and it becomes a never ending circle)

Well that's what happened to me today, and these were THOSE shoes.
Hopefully I'll either trash them or remember this post and never wear them again.

i'm young.

I love all my roommates, don't get me wrong.
 But tonight I'm especially loving this one.
I'm only 19. I make mistakes. We all do. Sometimes we do stuff that make us feel dumb. It happens to all of us. I'm just glad that I have people like Gabbi to make me feel less dumb about myself. I went to call her today to vent, and it turns out she was in the area by chance. So I vented in person. It was good. I did some major retail therapy. I love her. She's just amazing. That's all.

can barely smile

Shirt: Forever 21 Skirt: PiperLime Shoes: Charlotte Russe

Being prescribed to sit on the couch these past couple days has not been the most fun.
I got bored watching TV within the first two hours of coming home from the surgery. 
My recovery has not been the greatest, but it hasn't been the worst. I got sick from the meds and haven't been able to sleep that great but it's all good :)
I could barely pop a smile in this picture due to my soreness still. 
I've basically been bumming around online window shopping the past couple days to get me through it. I've been eying this skirt the past couple weeks and when I saw it was on sale, I had no choice but to get it. That's my update, This was my outfit. Hope everyone had a good weekend

I always love looking at videos of people's wisdom teeth adventures, and this is super embarrassing but I decided to record my experience for everyone to enjoy.

It's Sunday, you know the drill. 
Whenever I have time to get ready (meaning more than 5 min), I like to take a picture of it. What's the point in spending mula on clothes if you can't share it right?

clothing swap outfit!

So Friday night, the lovely Cydney Allen, hosted a Clothing Swap Party. I had never been to one before, and basically you just bring clothes from your closet that you are just sick of and you swap them. An alternative to spending loads of cash on cute clothes. Anyway, the black dress below was one of the items I snagged at the party and was super excited to wear to church today! Just had to share.
Thanks girl!
 Dress: Swap Party Belt: The Limited Cardigan: H&M
