Does this outfit look remotely familiar?  Take this one… chop off the pants at the knees and voila! There you go.  Creative, huh?

For the record, beloved Mavi jeans were not harmed in the making of this post. In case you were worried.  Don’t want anyone losing any sleep.

July Fourth

This is what I wore for the July Fourth holiday.  We spent the holiday in the neighborhood with our friends at the local beer garden.  The weather was gorgeous, though a little hot. From around 4 pm through after 10 pm, we enjoyed the beautiful weather, beers, food and good company.  It was a perfect way to spend a summer holiday.

Knowing I was going to be outside in the sun all day, I broke this hat out of storage.  I’m not one to usually wear hats but if I know I’m going to be in the sun all day I usually will.  Especially at the beach, which I had gone to the day prior.

Holiday weekends I always forget to get photos. I’m too damn busy. I’ll have my camera with me but I’ll never take it out of my bag.

This was last Sunday during 4th of July weekend. My husband and I met up with my best friend and her boyfriend for a few cocktails. On our walk home, I remembered I forgot to get my photos, and my husband happily stepped in to take a few for me.

It’s really funny to me how different it is taking photos in front of him instead of a tripod. I make really silly, goofy smiley faces when he takes my photos.  They’re 100% genuine, but goofy nonetheless.  He makes me kinda self concious in a cute girly way.  Which is weird for me because there’s nothing about me that’s normally cute and girly.  Ask any of my friends, they’d tell you I’d probably punch you in the face if you called me that.

Oh, and how awesome are these shorts!  I found them at the Market Publique loft sale here in Williamsburg  back several months ago.  They were actually unfinished.  They were much longer and not hemmed.  I had them altered and now totally love them.  I can’t believe I forgot I had them in my 30 challenge items until day 19.  You’ll probably be seeing these shorts a lot in the final 10 days of the challenge so I can make up for my forgetfulness.

A Tree No Longer Grows in Brooklyn

I noticed while putting this post together that all of a sudden, the tree is gone. This spot is my go to spot for quick photos, and there was always a tree in the background. Now there’s just a stub.

I asked my husband about it and he said some city sanitation workers had come by earlier in the week and they took it down, citing something about it being dead and “about to fall and kill someone”. Guess it was a zombie tree. Jokes aside, I was tremendously sad by this because just the week prior, I had spotted a nest full of baby birds inside a hole in the tree. All I can think about now is if those baby birds are okay and if the sanitation workers even noticed they were in there. My husband being the sweetheart he is tried to assure me the mother bird probably took her babies to safety, but I don’t know.

Sad.

No Time to Eat

Day 8-1 Display

So yesterday I get home with a plan.  I was going to be home by 6 pm, order some takeout, and while waiting for the takeout, was going to take my photos.  Then the food would arrive, I could eat it fairly leisurely, and then at around 6:50 or so run on over to the gym for my spin class and personal training session.

I get home and the first thing I always do is feed the pets.  Our cat has diabetes, so the lucky girl always gets an insulin shot with her meals twice a day.  I go to grab a needle, and sure enough we’re out.  So then I wonder, if she doesn’t get her shot until tomorrow, will she be ok?  A quick Google search tells us that no, she can in fact go into a coma, so I now have to shove a trip to the pharmacy in my 50 minute window.

So I order our food, take my photos (and remember to turn the auto-focus on!), run to the pharmacy, and by the time I get home it’s already 6:35.

Great.

I throw on my gym clothes, determine there’s not enough time to eat, and proceed to go to the gym and am the crankiest bitch you’d ever meet.

At least I had my takeout waiting for me when I got home at 8:30 pm.

Dolce Day

Day Two{Maxi Dress: H&M; Cardigan: Dolce and Gabbana (Thrifted); Belt: H&M; Wedges: Dolce Vita for Target}

I realized while putting together this post that my day two outfit includes two “Dolce” items. One being one of my best thrifted finds ever, a Dolce and Gabbana cardigan, and the other being some Dolce Vita wedges I got from Target. I guess it’s Dolce Day.
