totally thrifted

hello! i finally have internet!!! this may not seem like a big deal, but alas, anthony and i have been living in the stone age this week because our apartment has not had wi-fi for 10. whole. days. as soon as we moved in we were supposed to be able to set everything up, but after many, many problems with comcast we were told there was something wrong with our connection or box or something. i am not aware all of the details here people, i am no rocket scientist. all i know is that i have not been able to watch orange is the new black on netflix and i don't know what i did to deserve this cruel and unusual punishment. they finally sent someone out today to fix it. so praise baby jesus i can finally see what happened in the piper/pensatuckey brawl at the end of last season. (no spoilers, please!)
 our first week in dc has been incredible. in between unpacking and decorating, we've been eating fro yo, drinking beer, going to the movies, etc. basically it's the same stuff that we usually do except now it requires a lot more walking and we are constantly surrounded by tourists asking us to take their photograph in front of the [insert whatever monument is closest to us here.] but honestly, i love it! there's just something about the hustle and bustle of the city that makes me feel more awake and more alive. it sounds cliche, but it couldn't be more true.
i can already tell this little denim dress is going to get a lot of use this summer. it's comfy, lightweight, and bonus-- it has little studs on the pockets. i paired it with a slouchy bag, a skinny belt, and my trusty brown sandals and i was all set to walk around and explore our new neighborhood. you can easily recreate this look at h&m. i linked to some cute and affordable items that will help you master the comfy + chic look this summer!

i'm happy to be getting settled into our new place and excited to share some fun stuff here on this little blog soon. as always, thanks for reading!

  22. Oh my goodness. Pensatucky. That whole premiere episode was just a cruel waiting game -- like just tell me what happened already so I can get on with my life! And by my life, I mean with binge- watching the rest of the season, obviously. ah! love this outfit...mine, today (um, k, and like most days) is totally thrifted, too!

  24. I'm just getting caught up with Orange Is The New Black too. Such a good series! The first episode of the new season was crazy.

  26. I feel your pain Nikki! My college apartment has no wifi, and my cable didn't work for 3 whole months last semester! I was close to a blog breakdown, and had to sit in the library every evening to use the campus free wifi, haha. Lucky for you things got solved! This outfit is super cute, and perfect for a summer in the city. Have a great weekend! xo
