I don't have anything to write today. Besides, it's Labor Day and I'm not supposed to work too hard, right? Chris and I have a fun day planned to finish painting our office and an Ikea run, which is my idea of a fun time. I hope you all have an amazing Labor day!

striped t-shirt dress

Dress - Target ($13)
Chambray - Madewell (thrifted for $2)
Flats - Lucky via TJMaxx ($15)
Tote - Joy Gryson  via TJMaxx ($100)
Necklace - TJMaxx ($25)

I know, I know, I'm wearing the chambray tied around my waist... Again. But, whatever. I like how it looks. When something works, it works, and if I like it, I will wear it until I get sick of it. I love how this trend from the 90's is back. It may only be for a short while but I will embrace it. And it's totally convenient as well. When I get cold (which is always) I have a something to keep me warm right there waiting for me. 

Anyways, I'm trying to grow my hair out and it is in the very awkward phase. I'm trying to do new things with it so I don't end up getting frustrated and cutting it. This has been one of my go-to looks the past few days. I love braids and this is one way I can incorporate them into my look with shorter hair. 

Do you guys have a favorite hairstyle for shorter hair? Or for the growing out phase? I need some ideas!

Happy Monday!

what I wish I was wearing

What i wish i was wearing

Top - H&M ($25) | Jeans - Madewell ($128) | Heels - Zara ($90)
Hat - BCBG ($78) | Fringe Necklace - BaubleBar ($36)

Work sucks, and unfortunately I work in the restaurant business where weekends are the money makin' days. If I wasn't working tonight (and the weather was a little bit cooler), this is what I would want to wear. A few of these items are even on my birthday wist list. Hello black distressed skinnies, I need you!

To those of you that are not working, have fun and enjoy your weekend!
