Once upon a time, I thought I hated blazers. I had a few in my closet but I hated them on me so I never even slipped one on again for five years. Then the other day, thanks to my charismatic adorable friend Kristy, we got a 40% discount at the Gap after she schmoozed her way into the friend discount by the employee there. Score! This blazer would not let me take my eyes off of it and in doing so, I was forced to buy it since never again would I be able to buy a blazer from the Gap for so cheap. So, I did. And in love again I am with blazers (although, as far as posing in them goes, I'm lost.)
Sometimes, I feel really fortunate that the only thing you ever see on my blog is what I put on it; i.e. you can't see what my closet actually looks like right now, the piles of clothes in my bathroom and scattered curling irons and straighteners thrown about on my counters, the dirty clothes buildup in my hamper, or my out of control desk littered with papers, folders, and textbooks. If it wasn't already apparent, I can be a bit of a scatterbrain. And in my most scatterbrain moments, my bedroom/bathroom/closet reflects that. And right now I'm just really happy at least one corner of my life is tidy.
Oh, yeah. I redesigned my blog layout myself the other day. I have done two for other people now and while I'm no pro, I can do enough to be self-sufficient and support my spur of the moment blog layout anxieties. And of course, it was the polka dots that did it for me. Of course. (P.S. If you ever need blog layout help/advice let me know! I'm in business!)

*Also, I feel the need to publicly thank my lovely roommate for pulling over to the side of the road when I scream "there!" at the green fence I want to take pictures by on the way home. She's the greatest.
