Last Day

This is my last day of work. As of tomorrow, I’ll be unemployed!

Blouse, Maeve (consignment). Pants, Polo Ralph Lauren. Shoes, Seychelles. Sunglasses, Marc Jacobs. Earrings, Francesca’s Closet. Necklace, handmade gift. Bag, Nordstrom Rack.

Stay tuned for my plans for the next few months. I’ll give you a clue: it has nothing to do with dogs. (Sad face.)

Oh, and one more clue: I'm not going full-time blogger.

Otra Vez

Have I complained about the heat, lately? It totally sucks. But a cold can of sour beer makes it suck less.

Lace top, Gracia. Dress, Prabal Gurung for Target. Shoes, vintage and thrifted. Sunglasses, Toms. Earrings, street fair.

I probably spend way too much time considering hypothetical situations. For instance, what if humans panted instead of sweated to cool off? My front would be covered in foamy slobber on a day like today.

Dress, Parker (consignment). Shoes, Katie & Kelly. Sunglasses, Coco Sunglasses. Earrings, Charming Charlie. Bralette, Victoria’s Secret. Tote, Nordstrom Rack.

The temps weren’t that horrible by the time Jasper’s 8 pm agility class started. He hardly panted at all. I think I still got sweaty, though.

Super Dork

I’m super dorky. I’ll never be chic or sophisticated or polished. But I think those things are kind of boring, anyway.

Dress, Under Skies (consignment). Sneakers, Vans. Sunglasses, Girlprops. Earrings, California State Fair. Bag, Nordstrom Rack.

Being dorky gives me energy. I took these photos at 7:30 pm after working a super long day in the 100+ degree heat. I was dragging as the dogs followed me to our picture spot in the backyard. Once I grabbed a prop, though, the dorkiness took over.

Sistah Time

Is there anything better than getting drunk with your sister? Especially when your husband is the DD.

I met my sister, Tabitha, in wine country for shopping, eating, and drinking. We ended the day in the pool. It was totally worth the Monday morning hangover.

Dress, American Rag (consignment). Belt, Hadley Polett (consignment). Boots, Ariat. Sunglasses, Coco Sunglasses. Earrings, Walmart. Bag, Nordstrom Rack.

My drunk face:

I’m not sure if I should be proud of my reading list for the summer. My book bin isn’t full of romance novels, but it isn’t all Greek classics and philosophy, either. It’s a mix of science, self-discovery, history, and adventure. Not a highbrow selection, but not lowbrow, either.

My summer sabbatical (and book reading) starts in early July. For now, I’m just pinkbrow.

Dress, Equipment. Shoes, Nine West. Earrings, Stardust Remembered. Necklace, thrifted. Sunglasses, Coco Sunglasses. Bag, Aldo.

The book bin is filling up!

I love a brown and black and white outfit. It’s so restful for the eye.

Dress, Parker. Belt, Hadley Pollet (consignment). Shoes, Ferragamo (thrifted). Hat, Charlotte Russe. Earrings, Claire’s. Bag, vintage.

Any image can be made less chaotic by removing the color. I only wish instagram filters could be applied to real life.

Group Photo

Group photos are the worst. The larger the group, the greater the chance that someone will be blinking, speaking, or picking their nose. Then there’s always the joker that ruins the photo by giving the person in front of them bunny ears. I prefer single portraits.

No bunny ears here! (And I never publish the awkward, “not ready” pics.)

Shirt, Banana Republic. Skirt, Carole Little (thrifted). Shoes, Isaac Mizrahi. Sunglasses, Coco Sunglasses. Belt, H&M. Bag, Aldo.

I did take a photo of our Toastmasters group tonight, in honor of two special speeches given by James Jeffley, 2014 and 2015 World Championship of Public Speaking Finalist.

And yes, at least four of the takes were ruined by bunny ears. You'll never guess who the culprits were.
