I've had this dress for awhile now, but for some reason it started making a reappearance in my heavy rotation. It's perfect for the colder weather and is so comfortable and fun. I wore it to see my favorite band and yeah, I wore this amazing necklace from Onecklace with my fav bands name engraved into it. I love engraved necklaces because they add a little fun to every outfit and they're a conversation starter.

I wore this in Pittsburgh. We went to the Mattress Factory -- which is an incredible and interactive museum. Had tacos and tons of coffee before the show. My friends and I paid a little extra to see The Menzingers do an acoustic six song set before the show. Apparently this also included a photo. We are all very awkward, but we survived it. Both shows were incredible and I love Pittsburgh so much.

These photos were from over the summer when I visited Chicago. For some reason, I never got around to posting them. I'm a huge fan of maxi dresses and how they make me feel tall. Yes, I realize nothing can actually make me tall, so I'll take what I can get. When traveling, I try and wear outfits that are comfortable, but also simple and fashionable. This did the trick for a Sunday brunch before heading out of town.

I went to Chicago to see Gaslight Anthem do a ten year tour and it was incredible. They're one of my favorite bands and seeing those songs live all these years later was great. We traveled all over the city, ate EVERYTHING, became regulars at the local coffee shop, had late night adventures, and enjoyed our AIRBNB patio. It was a non-stop blur of good times. Well, until the six hour bus ride home.

It's hard to believe that less than a week ago, it was 87 degrees. Last night, I had to turn on my heat and I will continue to pretend I'm not freezing in order to not wear my winter coat yet. It's the tiny things.

I bought this matching two-piece well over a year ago and it's one of my favorite pieces that I somehow always forget to wear. The first time I wore this I was in Philly. Philly is one of my favorite cities, so it was an honor to wear it there. It was much colder and it really worked with fall accessories.

I'm seeing two bands I love tonight (Tigers Jaw / the Sidekicks) and I am filled with joy. No matter how many times I've seen both (hint: a lot) they still kill it. This week I'm also seeing Minus the Bear for their last Cleveland show EVER. I will definitely cry a little with my friends.

It's been a minute. I'm shocked I even remember how to do this. I miss *old* blogging. The one that had the community. The one where people were excited about it. The one that wasn't so fake/staged/whatever. Whenever I look back through this blog, I'm thrilled that it exists, but sometimes it's hard to commit. You know? Like when it's too hot, too cold, or I can't align my schedule with my boyfriends. Don't worry, I'm still wearing cute outfits and I'm still casually posting them on instagram. Don't worry, it's not just the blog I have neglected. I haven't used Twitter in nine months nad I deleted Facebook for several months. I'm just scaling back and regaining my focus or something? Don't think I'll ever give up Instagram though.

I spent the entire summer pining after this dress. It was almost $200 and all of the rational people in my life told me not to buy it. So, every couple weeks I would refresh the site in hopes that it would go on sale. It took three damn months. But patience is a virtue or something, right? I even had a coupon. I am in love with this dress even if it's the kind of material that wrinkles quickly and doesn't really have room for a bra. I'll take it. I feel great in this dress and this color palette. Sometimes that's all we can ask for.

I'm seriously interested in getting back to documenting the random shit I do and the outfits I wear. I know blogging doesn't care about me, but I care about it. So, hopefully this will be a more regular thing.
