Just checking in quickly to say hi. I have been so busy and apologize if you have left a comment or sent me an email recently that I have not replied to yet. This is my 8th day of work in a row (four more to go!) so I am falling a little behind on things, but I promise to try to catch up with you all this week!

I am not thrilled with these pictures even though I thought it was a fun colorful outfit. We were headed out to dinner Friday night and didn't really plan a good picture spot, just pulled over in a neighborhood on the way and snapped a few pictures. One of the things I really love about this blog is getting to plan out different locations and plotting the overall aesthetics when taking outfit pictures. I guess what I have to realize though is if I am to keep up with a fashion and lifestyle blog, not everything can be shot in some special location. There sometimes just isn't enough time in the day, and photos need to be snapped wherever you actually happen to be! Do any of you come across this problem of always wanting a scenic backdrop, but not always having enough resources or time?
Anyway, R jokingly said we should just snap the pictures inside the Mexican restaurant we were heading to. When we got there, I had to laugh, because I matched the inside perfectly! Tropical parrots and beach scenes galore in oranges and aquas! I seriously camouflaged into our booth so well you probably could only see a floating head.
I am loving these new minty American Apparel jeans. If you are looking for a high waisted pair for fall (or really any season), they have these in a bunch of different colors and are well made in a nice, stretchy material. But, I am never wearing them to eat Mexican food ever again! After about half of my plate of mole enchiladas, I could not take another bite in fear of not being able to breathe! (Mole [moe-lay] as in a type of Mexican sauce containing chillies and chocolate, not the small blind marsupial.) Can you tell I'm tired?
Hope you all had a great weekend! More soon.
p.s. I think I should do a post on my most awkward poses. That last photo is definitely going to be in that post.
