my go-to

i think it's funny how this denim shirt is like my go-to shirt for fridays. i wonder why? maybe it's like the quintessential casual shirt. whatever the reason, i love it and it's comfortable and that's exactly what i need!
i bought these shorts at my favorite thrift store earlier this week. they reminded me so much of the current h&m garden collection so i figured i'd try it out. i don't have an h&m within like 200 miles and i doubt i'll be finding any of the new stuff via a consignment store so i thought this might just be my best bet. and at a dollar, i just couldn't pass it up. i mean, you can't beat that bargain with a stick!
allegedly, we're getting some rain today. i can honestly say i am looking forward to it. which is strange since i hate rain almost any day of the week, but i really want to get rid of some of this pollen!!
this is going to be a fairly busy weekend for us. do you guys have big plans? we'll be attending two birthday parties tomorrow and then having dinner with friends on sunday. plus tonight there's going to be a showing of a film that some kids from the university made that feature both of our cars! it is set in russia in some other time period that escapes me right now and they wanted to have vehicles in it from europe. one evening matt went down to his car and there was a note attached asking if we'd allow them to have our cars in the movie. mine is the bad guys car. i'm so proud.
oh, and i'm thinking of doing a giveaway. i know, i know. everyone does them. but they are fun, are they not? maybe starting monday. i figure i need to thank you guys for hanging out with me, giving me advice, and generally putting up with me even though you are not contractually obligated to do so (like my sweet husband). i'll let you know!!!

I remember seeing you on chictopia a while ago..and here I am, finally on your blog :)

I'm obsessed with denim shirts at the moment, they're so comfy and can be styled in so many different ways. The combo with shorts is my favorite right now..and I have to find a darker shirt for me too!

You look adorable and I enjoy reading your posts! This won't be my last time here, hehe :)

Love, Diana

I love denim shirts, they're so casual and comfortable. I'm still searching for the perfect denim shirt, it's hard to find the shade of denim that I want. It's more pale blue. I did see one in Hong Kong, but that shop was never open and I saw it hanging in the window, then one day when it was finally open when I was there... I took a look at it and walked away... how ironic.

Yes do a giveaway!!! I'm going to do a giveaway... finally... soon. As I've promised, but this time, TWO ITEMS!!! Woooo.

I'm really diggin' your denim shirt. It adds a certain casual flair to an outfit that could turn fancy. But it's perfect for Friday.
And if you say those are shorts, that's awesome. It's not often such fun, colorful shorts pop up.

I love those shorts! I bought some like it at a thrift store today, only they have a much different print and I'm semi-unsure of how to wear them.

Can't wait for your giveaway...they really are fun!

This is so so adorable! I totally thought about wearing my chambray today! The shorts are super cute. I'm also ridiculously far from H & M (and F21, froooown).

LOL. I like how your husband is contractually obliged! And I love these shorts! I would never think to buy something like this! But now, maybe! You are inspiring. As for a giveaway? Yes please. !

I love that you can pull off a denim shirt! I was watching a movie the other day set in the 80s and noticed all the denim shirts and how much they rocked.
