Confession: I absolutely LOVE the crop top trend going on right now. LOVE. IT.
It’s just, when I actually got around to trying it myself, I felt a wee bit self conscious. But, with everything I have going on right now, I didn’t even have time to think about it. So I braved it - I hiked up my skirt, threw on a cardi (ok, not really. It was 100 degrees out. The cardi barely lasted 5 minutes), and headed out to this month’s Dress Swap hosted by the Swapaholics.
If you are in the Boston area, don’t forget that these swaps are being held monthly! Don’t forget to check out the schedule, and Follow the Swapaholics on Twitter and Facebook so you don’t mix the next one.

The weather this weekend was absolutely perfect. Perfect weather for firsts of the season. It started with our first summer bbq with friends. Mmmmmmm, burgers and margaritas. And then on Sunday, we spent our first official afternoon on the porch with a couple of cold bottles of Coke and our books.
And then we went and saw The Hunger Games.
For the third time.
Because there is nothing like finishing off a warm day with a cool theater, an iced coffee, and a really, really good movie.
top and purse: H&M
Some days I gravitate towards black jeans, leather boots, and bold silver jewelry, and then other days I feel like dressing as girly as possible. What can I say, I guess I’ll never grow out of my bows, ruffles, and florals.

There are a handful of shows and movies that, if on TV, I HAVE to watch them. Like Armageddon and Titanic. I guarantee you - if I come across either of those movies in the guide, I won’t bother looking any farther. They suck me in.
Lately, its been Storage Wars. I.Can’t.Look.Away. And there seems to be a marathon on as I’m typing this. So I guess the rest of my day is shot, ha.

This outfit was created to go with my new DIY hair comb. Ta daaaaaaaaa…
So, I’m used to people staring and being creepy by now. It happens a lot, and I’ve mentioned it before. I get it. A girl standing there, posing, taking her own photos - its weird. But Its more something I expect when I’m taking them in public, not when I’m right in front of my own house. I was out taking these photos, and at the house directly across the street, two women opened their door and stood in their doorway as they stared at me until I finished. Whats worse is that I was directly facing them, so I had to face the awkwardness and see them as I was trying to pose.
Come on people - just look, look confused and weirded out by the weird girl, and move on. No need to be that creepy.

Yesterday, I mentioned that I managed to pick up a Diane von Furstenberg top at the swap (major score!). Well, here it is! Its silky, and hot pink, and has a fun print! I’m super pumped that I managed to get my hands on it before anyone else did.
p.s - that darn ISO. I don’t know why I always forget to check it. Sorry for the graininess.
