this is me

{What I Wore: Ralph Lauren Polo button down & ball cap // Citizens of Humanity jeans (DIY'd into shorts) // Sperry Topsider boat shoes }

 This is me being mistaken for a male fraternity member on Vanderbilt campus.

This is me coming to terms with the fact that I might not ever get more than 6 hours of sleep again (thanks to this cute little puppy girl named Scout)
This is me giving up on having "Spring" here in Nashville, or 3 days straight without rain for that matter
This is me resigning that YES I WILL forgo showering for 10 extra minutes of sleep

This is me embracing the trendy-ness of ball caps to cover said un-showered locks
This is me trying to figure out why my camera lens has suddenly stopped cooperating with my remote... le sigh.
This is me still fitting into my first pair of designer jeans & being darn proud of it (purchased 10 YEARS ago in 2003 & made into shorts when the knees gave out)

This is me thankful that people have finally started to notice that my hair is red (but maybe only because my roots are showing, salon appointment officially scheduled!)
What is new with you lately?


  1. Oh my gosh you and your pups look so stinkin cute!! Here's to hoping I can look half as cute as you in my boyfriend shorts lol.

  2. Love your casual look! You guys are so cute.

  3. You look adorable in a baseball cap–not everyone could pull that off (probably myself included!).

  4. Those jeans turned into shorts look fab! You have me thinking about all of my older jeans that I don't wear any more and wondering which ones I could do the same with. If only I wasn't hesitant to try due to the fact that I keep thinking the 7 "A" pocket bells will come back in style one day. Smart thing to do since the knees gave out on yours though. Love this outfit!

  5. OMG your pup is too damn cute. Love it!

    aww i love that last photo! i've been wearing hats on the weekends more often when i go out for long walks (mainly my bruins hat.) i love you in a hat, you wear it well!

  9. Aw so cute! I love boyfriend shorts, but I always worry they look dorky on me. You however look amazing in them!

    I think this look is adorable -- perfect for a relaxed and casual weekend! xo

  11. Regardless of why you're wearing a baseball hat - you look adorable!! And Scout is precious!

  12. Scout is the cutest and you look adorable in the baseball cap! Oliver never barked in the middle of the night to go out when he was a puppy (sure, half the time he'd just pee in his crate) but I got a full night's sleep!

  21. Love this post! I will always forgo washing hair in order to get more sleep. Also, I'm pretty damn impressed that you can still fit into jeans from 2003! Love your puppy!!
