not awesome and kind of awesome

Friday, May 6

Shoes: c/o Threadsence, Jeans: F21, Blouse: F21, Blazer: c/o Simple Thrift, Necklace: c/o Lauren Elan
We're celebrating Cinco De Mayo a little unconventionally this year. Our party was delayed until tonight. And while there's still going to be food, we're going to be celebrating with a basketball game. Or rather the boys will, and the girls will talk and maybe try to eat all the food by ourselves.
Maybe next year we'll decide to be awesome and festive.
I HAVE decided that I'm gonna try and be kind of awesome this weekend by making something from my newest obsession, the Lottie + Doof food blog. {I dare you not to get addicted} And this coming from the girl whose whole identity revolves around an abhorrence for the kitchen. I must be coming down with something.
Quick, someone feed me grapes on the chase lounge.

Ahhhh! I am in love with this outfit! I wish I was all petite and cute in jeans and shoes like those. P.S. Because of you, I have fallen in love with Blowfish shoes. I want. Them. All.

I love thrifting on Etsy. it has an added pricetag, but you can use etsy as a filter of finding all the good stuff out there. Have you checked out: http://www.etsy.com/shop/VintageFashionRetro?ref=pr_shop_more


I've gotten a few great pieces from them. Happy Friday!

An uncoventional Cinco De Mayo is ALWAYS appropriate.

Surprisingly enough, Cince de Mayo is not celebrated in Mexico, in fact they think it's so funny Americans get a kick out of it!

I've just started reading your blog and I must say I love that you only go shopping every few months and remix your clothes so often. So creative and got me thinking about how I could cut down my clothing allowance a bit...

Also, I'm 19 years old and getting married in June. Its always nice to read about other young married couples :)
