Weird Faces

velvet dress: thrifted :: cardigan: GAP :: collar: eBay :: tights: TJMaxx::
flatforms: urban Outfitters:: dice purse: (old) 

A week or so ago, I caught some kind of bug that kept me sickly and in a sour mood for days. That explains the weird faces in the collage. I was freezing at the time, despite the heat and sunshine, so I bundled up in velvet, cardigans, and tights. Looking at these pictures now, in this current 90F weather, is making me sweat. 

Guess what. We got an apartment! We had planned on finding one in just one day, especially because I had already spent the past weekend leading up to our apartment-hunting-day scouring the interwebs for places that matched our tastes. It turns out that I should have done more research on the different neighborhoods before looking for apartments. After day 1, we were so tired and disappointed in the places we saw. After a good night's sleep, though, we scheduled some last-minute viewings and found a place in a super great area. It's not as big or visually interesting as we wanted (we were hoping for a large-ish, historic house) but it's really close to a lot of local businesses and markets. HURRAY! We're moving next week, and I can't wait to  get settled in!

I am exhausted from the viewings and having to drive around everywhere and back home. I wanted a long shower and a big bowl of hummus, but it turns out, I had already packed and taped shut my food processor and garbanzo beans. Fail, fail, fail. So it was Taco Bell for dinner :(

  4. I would've totally run to the store and gotten one of their packaged pre-made hummous things out of the ready-made section. When I got's the craving, there's no stopping me. :D

    Congrats on the new place! I hope the move goes smoothly and that you're all better now.

  10. Haha, you crack me up. So glad you guys found a place! I'm an awful apartment hunter. My problem is I can't say no. I know if I go in for a viewing, I will feel pressured into signing a lease. Pushy sales people are killer for me.

  21. Laura, I am so excited about your move! Why? Cause I believe change is positive! Methinks this is the beginning of new and exciting adventures for you. Yay! (And you know I don't yay often!) My nephew recently had to go apartment hunting and after a week, he was ready to throw in the towel. Fortunately, my sister found him a beautiful small house whose rent is even cheaper than the apartment they were initially looking for! Please, please do share photos of your new digs in a future post! By the way, even though it makes you sweat to see these shots, you have to admit you look adorable! I'm with Indah--I love the bag! Hugs! :)

  22. Congrats on the new place! I remember what a task it was trying to find a place I felt like home at and I felt like I didn't have a home for a long while. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better, being sick is the pits, I use to get sick constantly when I worked office jobs but now that I'm a hermit I am never around people to get sick... it's kind of a blessing and a curse (no money, boredom, minor things drive me crazy) at the same time. This is the cutest outfit, I love your velvet dress and purple tights and that dice purse! Eeek, so much cute. I was on the fence about hummus but I find myself craving it so I suppose that means I like it...

    Also your faces are cute and so is this outfit. I love how your purple tights look with this awesome velvet dress. The collar is a perfect addition too.

  25. I have just fallen in love with mauve. I love how you paired a dull purple with a vibrant one, and you have it on your lips too! You look so damn cute. I am crazy about that collar! I'm certainly glad to hear you're feeling better, and congratulations on the apartment!

    May the Force be with you.

  26. I literally realized a hour ago that my bike was stolen (second time in a year...grrrr...) and I'm trying to do anything to calm me down a bit and reading your blog is helping. So, thank you? No but for realz your expressions made me giggle. I like the top middle one: like napping on a windy motorcycle ride?
