striped tee: forever 21 / maxi skirt: h&m / heels: c/o Blowfish Shoes 

loving: this black maxi skirt. it's become my goal every week to come up with a new outfit centered around this skirt. it is also my goal not to wear it every day of the week. 

reading: just finished The One, the third book in The Selection series by Kierra Cass. it's a super, light fluffy fun read but worth it for the story and for team Maxon. and last night, i picked up my copy of The Glass Castle that has been sitting on my nightstand, collecting dust for years until a friend recently recommended it so i decided what the heck! let's get the dustbunnies to find another place to land. and even though i'm only a few chapters in, the writing is fantastic and the story intriguing so will def follow-up with a review either here or on instagram once i finish. 

eating: cherries, blueberries and despicable me fruit snacks. no joke, the despicable me fruit snacks are the best fruit snacks ever (thank you, tanya and robertson boys.) and this is not necessarily in the eating category, but i have been drinking a lot of cucumber water. i'm obsessed. it's a great for detox but i just love the taste of it. so much better than plain, boring water!  

watching: not the World Cup. sorry. watching paint dry might be more exciting. (sorry to offend 75% of you all.) as i type, i'm currently re-watching When Harry Met Sally. old school Meg Ryan and Nora Ephron writing. sigh. i never get tired of it. and oh! got super giddy about season 4 of Pretty Little Liars on netflix. finally. 

listening: The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack on repeat. can't stop listening to Boom Clap and Let Me In. and oh, when is the DVD coming out again 'cause that needs to be on repeat in my DVD player, too.

looking forward to: so so so much! there are some exciting changes and opportunities on the horizon *giddy clap* that Ryan and i are anticipating this summer. (nope, not pregnant. just gonna throw that out there 'cause i know what some of you are already thinking. ha! and we are moving along.) can't wait to share more as these adventures unfold!

what are you currently up to? do share! and as always inspired by the lovely Danielle of Sometimes Sweet

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}
