hot, hot, heat

009b

Well friends, it's that time again. Monday, you always show up early. I had a nice weekend though, nothing too earth shattering- ate some good food, thai, froyo, omelets. Spent some time with friends. Worked on my paintings. This is the final push, I have four paintings due on Thursday and have managed to semi-complete 2 of them in the past 4 days or so. We're kicking into high gear ladies and gentlemen!

Right now I'm about ready to pass out. I'm always a little more tired when I wear heels, is that pathetic? It just uses a totally different group of muscles and I think my ankles are comparatively weak. It also got quite hot today! Felt like summer.

Any Gossip Girl fans?? Finally a new episode! What is wrong with these people? They love to take these unexpected, uncalled for breaks from the season. I'm not watching tonight though, I'm waiting to watch with my friend Susan tomorrow when she has more time, so don't tell me anything! I'm a huge stickler for that kind of thing.

There was this girl in high school we shall remain nameless who was quiet as a mouse, literally never heard a word out of her. Then during the first week of school in lit class, we had to tell everybody our favorite book and why as an icebreaker. So, she proceeds to say that her favorite book is My Sister's Keeper because the ending is so unexpected, what ends up happening is: ___________. I was in the middle of reading that book and was agitated to say the least! Bahh I hate when people do that. There was no emotional distress for me at the end because I knew what was coming all along. Reading is one of my most favorite things to do because you become immersed in this world in which you feel like you know these characters. Everything comes to life and you find yourself growing attached to them. Has anyone ever spoiled a book/movie for you?

Top: Urban Outfitters, also seen here// Skirt: Forever 21// Boots: Steve Madden// Slip: Victoria's Secret

I've got a slip on underneath this which does double duty. Both the shirt and the skirt are quite sheer so it worked out nicely. I should probably look into getting just a skirt slip though. Any suggestions for where to find one?

Well I think that about sums it up for now!
Hope Monday was kind to you.

Ugh I absolutely hate it when someone ruins an ending for me! My Sister's Keeper was ruined for me too!

I love stripes and floral (together) so of course I adore your outfit! It's so playful too!

I can't say I am more tired when I wear heels, but I feel like they are the reason my feet are sore every night. I feel like they are sore from wearing heels, and then still sore from not wearing heels. Like my feet can't get used to one or the other. Poor feet.

Anywho, love the look. The boots and the print mixing are just perfect.

I love, love, love this look. :) Thanks for letting me feature you! It was super fun. :)

Aaahh, yes, I know what you mean about getting tired after wearing heels. They just make everything work harder, haha. I was walking around Mall of America the other day while I was gone in heels and I now have terrible blisters the size of dimes. :P I think it was almost worth it. Almost. ;)

I feel the same way about heels. So I usually only wear them if I know I'm not super busy or stressed out that day. So sad. Maybe I just don't have the right pair. I've been looking for some wedges to see if they're the same.

I love the color of your shirt--so pretty :)
