urban renewal

well hello there, long time no see. sorry i've been totally MIA this week; i've just been running around like a madwoman since sunday! first of all, i had a great trip in seattle visiting my best friend. it was full of lots of coffee, long talks, shopping (duh), exploring new cities, and a fresh tattoo. :) dealing with the time difference and daylight savings all in one weekend was definitely eventful for my internal clock, but i survived and all of the airports and traveling was more than worth it!


as soon as i got back to pittsburgh, there was more traveling ahead, but this time for work, not pleasure! i had a super/awesome/amazing/exciting job interview in dc yesterday so i made a quick, less than 24 hour trip on the megabus. my family was so great helping me get to and from where i need to be and i am so thankful for them right now. i'm one lucky gal!




this look is just fun and casual for a typical day in the city. i love pairing slouchy sweaters with something more fitted on the bottom to balance it out. you don't wanna go with all baggy (lame) or all tight (double lame) so an outfit like this is a happy medium. and of course it's totally socially acceptable to wear tights with tons of holes because you're too lazy to buy new ones. right?



can we just talk about this purse because omg it is turquoise and has studs and it's perfect and basically all i've ever wanted in life. okay, i'm done. but forreal though, are you as in love with it as i am? i got it over the summer at this adorable little shop called studio c in hampden, md. they have tons of gorgeous homemade jewelry and other great accessories. 


i don't know about you but i am more than ready for the weekend right now. friday could not have come soon enough this time around. i am ready to relax and spend time with friends and just have fun. anthony is coming into town tonight and i can't wait to see him! we have tons of great plans (most involving food and/or beer) and i am looking forward to enjoying this beautiful fall weather that i haven't been able to experience because i've been on airplanes and buses more this week than last month as a whole! lol.


well, i hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. sending good vibes out to you all. <3

xxoo,
