this guy....right here...

.the one on the left (not the crazy husband).

I'm SOOOOOOOOOO freakin' excited to see this guy today! 
Josiah has been one of my best friends for a long time,
actually all the way back to 8th grade honor pass, to be exact! 

Josiah has been part of the BIG things in my life, he was even our roommate when SHOAVE moved to Virginia. 

When Shoaved moved from Virginia to Australia in summer of 2011,
we had to say "see ya later" to Josiah. It has been since then that we have seen Josiah. 
THIS is FAR TO LONG...I can't wait for our reunion today!!
(even if it's only for a few hours)

We could maybe even have a spoof of the Cruel Intentions...

WIW: lace and spikes

I won't lie to you, when I saw this dress on Asos Curve clearance I didn't hesitate to add it to my basket. Nope, didn't hesitate for even one was love at first sight. I didn't have anything in my closet that was this lady like and it desperately needed it, I could hear it begging me to get it. 

The dress came with a little brown belt, but I opted to use a black belt that I had instead. I feel like the belt black makes it look more sophisticated, which was what I wanted for the bridal shower I was attending. The brown belt would be nice for just a summer day outfit. 

.I couldn't capture the way the dress moves, this was my best attempt!.

I played around with a little contradiction with my accessories. I have the sweet little bow necklace and hair pin to go with the lace dress and then added a little 'roughness' with spiky  shoes and studded clutch. I love playing with textures and what may be unexpected. 

.the details.

.dress: Asos Curve. (the run large so order a size smaller than usual)
.shoes: Target.
.clutch: Target.
.Necklace & Hair Pin: Forever 21.

WIW: with a cherry on top

Even though it is pretty warm and humid out, I still wear my jeans with a lightweight sweater....cause I'm a little crazy. Actually, I work where (sometimes) it is air conditioned and I can be at the perfect temperature to wear this outfit.  If I get warm, I just roll up the sleeves and am on my way. 

You would not believe how many compliments on get on this sweater from both coworkers and customers. It's the perfect basic sweater, which I think it was makes it appealing to so many people. I love pairing this sweater with my red skinny jeans because I believe it gives it a POP and makes more of a statement!

.this is the first time I wore my hair down in MONTHS.......haaa.

.the details.

.pants: Old Navy. 
.sweater: Old Navy.
.shoes: Target.
.glasses: Ray-Ban.

.Maggie LOVES road trips.

This was our first road trip as a family, 5 days driving to Yellowstone National Park and back. It was a great time and we were SOOOO beyond happy that we brought Maggie with us. She loved being on the road (snoring in the backseat), smelling on the new scents and places, and running around in the country OFF her leash!!! 

*since she can't walk to far or to fast, we left her in the care of our motel family when we were in unfortunately, no pictures of her in with the buffalo.
