Counting Down











Top: TJ Maxx; Skirt: Forever 21 (similar); Necklace: Hand-me-down (similar)

If I ever wrote a book about blogging, it'd have to be titled The Man Behind the Blog and it'd have to be an ode to Ben who unfailingly gets up at 7:20 in the morning, when he doesn't have to be awake until at least 9 a.m., to take my outfit photos. Or bleary-eyed, rejects a blouse that just doesn't look right when I try to wear it out the door. Any of the good photos we get are all thanks to him frowning when I look at the camera at an unflattering angle and thanks to him yelling "LOOK UP!" because my eyes look better and more awake that way. 

Also of note - it's almost the weekend and I'm counting down the hours until Friday night (aka the night that doesn't end in waking up to an alarm). We essentially have no plans whatsoever which is the perfect way to launch a weekend in my books!
