and so i tip my hat to you, good people.


i don't know about you, fine fellows but it's been one long week. you know those weeks where you look forward to crawling into bed and staying there for a little bit longer and wanting to hit the snooze button 10 times instead of the normal 9? (i know, i know. i am really bad with the snooze button. i have to set my alarm 30 minutes earlier than i mean to get up 'cause i know i'm gonna slam that button.) 

but what the heck?! it's Friday and this weekend, i plan to squeeze in a couple of naps in there while probably curled up with a book. the family also is looking forward to seeing Christian Bale take on Gotham City as we inhale buckets of buttery movie theater popcorn. and i was able to squeeze in some Vampire Diaries this week - and oh em gee! - i need to have more Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder in my life. plus a weekend is not a weekend for me unless i get my 20 miler bike ride with my dad, so def looking forward to that (especially after inhaling the zillion of delish fatty calories of movie theatre - yum!). 

button-up: belk / tank: forever21 / boyfriend jeans: GAP / hat: billabong / fuschia oxfords (sadonnas): c/o Bait Footwear / turquoise clutch: c/o Javo Edge

and so i tip my hat to you, good people, wishing everyone of you a mah-velous weekend! 

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}

p.s. see that adorable turquoise clutch?! it's from my friends of Javo Edge and it seriously is the perfect clutch to hold your phone and all of your cards and cash! the quality is really impressive, and the color is too fun (not like i'm not obsessed with turquoise...at all). want your own (you need your own. for reals. like now)?!

  5. I love you in a fedora! Super cute! And who doesn't have to set their alarm a half hour early just for the snooze button? Isn't it just part of waking up?
