Down By the River


Alrighty, I am half way through the 30 for 30 challenge, and I can't believe it! You'd be so proud of me today! I had a half day from work yesterday and resisted the urge to head to the mall or thriftstores and instead picked up my vintage skirt from the tailors, which is included in the 30 for 30 challenge. After that? Well I spent the day reading my blogroll, making brownies, napping, and watching Arrested Development....PS Love that show!




So last night Zach and I had plans to see Inception, but Zach wasn't really feeling in the mood to go to the movies, so instead we went to dinner, ate vegetarian burritos and corn salsa then headed up to the Hague to walk along the water. It was hot as hell, so we had to wrap it up early, but before I turned back to the car I spent some time taking area shots while Zach headed back. Meanwhile, some guy on a scooter saw me by myself and decided to honk insistently at me and then goes "Ichiwawa!!" I almost dropped to my knees laughing at him, and Zach got to see the whole thing. It was priceless.



Alright, so on to fashion. Here is my favorite skirt, once again. I am so happy that I put this in my 30 for 30 closet. It's been a lifesaver since it's neutral and it goes with so many things. And the fact that it's a light weight fabric is even better! I'm wondering how I can best mix this into my fall/winter looks. And the rest of it just fell into place, once again. And check out my cougar necklace. Seriously one of my favorite necklaces. My co-worker sold it to me after she proclaimed she had tons of jewelry to sell.

  1. Have you done anything to your hair recently? It looks amazing! I mean, it has always looked fabulous, but perhaps lighter from the sun? I guess I never realized how many red tones you have.. I suppose I noticed because I've lately been extremely jealous of girls with pretty red hair :)

    Really love this outfit, that skirt literally goes with ANYTHING, great choice for the 30 challenge.

  2. that necklace is awesome! You're a lucky duck to have scored that from a coworker. And this skirt of yours--very nice, you can totally take that right into fall with just some tights, a nice color would be really great against the neutral of the skirt. You'll figure it out. Oh and you're hair looks really lovely in these photos too. :)

  3. Gorgeous outfit. I love your skirt :)

  4. Super cute! I love this outfit.

  5. love love love! i say you're doing extremely well in this challenge--you're coming up with some of your best outfits yet!!! :) that teal color is so gorgeous and your necklace is awesome!

  6. I love the color palate! You look lovely :)

  7. I just realized I really need a belt like that! Your outfit is so cute! Pocket of Presh

  8. Cute outfit! That skirt could definitely transition into fall with different colored and textured tights.

  9. great necklace and I concur arrested development and brownies..great choices!
