I've wanted to try out a pinafore forever, but I never found one that felt right. But this one? It's pretty darn perfect. The second I bought it and the shirt, I knew I had my new favorite outfit. I want both the shirt + pinafore in a million different styles. My sister found these balloons in a ditch and I'm thankful she dragged them down the street for a photo prop.

I wore this to breakfast, to eat macaroons and have high tea, and to see Captain Marvel. Which was a pretty perfect way to spend a Saturday.

When I found this dress, I couldn't believe that it looked good on me. Collars can be tricky with my haircut, but this one works perfectly. It was under $3 and I've been wearing it non-stop. I haven't had much luck thrifting lately -- seriously, what has happened to the Akron thrift stores? They are HORRIBLE now, but that doesn't stop me and my friends from monthly trips. We all found things this round, so success?

Last month, I decided to replace all the time I spend mindlessly scrolling online and watching tv with books. I managed to read fifteen books! I used to really love reading, but the internet steals all my time. So, it was really wonderful to get back to something I enjoy. I'll eventually do a write-up of everything I read. I discovered a lot of great books and authors I've missed the past few years. It's been a perfect winter hobby. I have way too many books, so I'm thankful my local library has everything and a great app where I can request whatever I want.

Having a platinum blonde pixie cut is a lot of work, but especially in the winter. The cold and harsh winds wreck havoc on my hair. I'm thankful to have discovered Silk18 shampoo. It's so nourishing and gives life to my lackluster winter hair.

Oh, man! It's been so long since I've posted one of these updates. I consume so much that this is only a small portion. So, hopefully I'll be better at updating them. Let me know if you've been watching, reading or listening to anything I should check out. I'm always down.

This skirt has become my go-to. I was shocked to discover I can rock this shape. It's strangely flattering on me and I'm thankful to have found it. Especially considering when I ordered it H&M sent me the wrong size and an email about a shipping error in the ladies department. Naturally, it was out of stock in my actual size and I spent two weeks impatiently waiting. It ended up costing me more the second time around, but hey, I got my favorite skirt. Like I mentioned, I've been wearing a variation of this outfit for six months straight and I probably won't stop.

While I didn't blog much in the past few months, I still occasionally took photos and just never posted them. On this day, my sister and I saw the Avett Brothers at a festival in Cleveland. The festival came with free tickets to the Rock Hall of Fame so we did that too. It was a lovely time and now I miss her (she moved back to New Zealand.)

And there's only one photo in front of this door because the cops yelled at us.
