image

While browsing through articles today, I came across this one with nine things no one tells you about being a grown up. It’s pretty spot on, and I can really relate to this one…

"Yes, you were tired as a kid and a teen, but none of that compares to adult tiredness. This is the kind of tired where sleep is so precious that you would probably give up a kidney for some sleep, but definitely a Friday night."

Yup - totally bought this. My favorite rap song is by Juvenile after all! You can find the gangsta muscle tee here for $15.99.

Went for a seaside dinner recently and put together this little number. I’m loving easy t-shirt dresses right now, especially ones with stripes. I found this one at Target during a would-be quick trip. Let’s be real - can you really even make a speedy trip to Target?

Rainy-Day Duds

This was a recent nighttime outfit on a rainy day, which also coincided with National Sushi Day (had no idea). Weirdly enough, I actually ate at a sushi restaurant and wondered why it was so packed.

I combined some of my favorite things for this getup - distressed jeans (I seriously have an out-of-control obsession), lace-up heels, a muscle tee and casual blazer. I’m constantly cold so it’s a great option for the always-freezing movie theaters.
