only trouble is, gee whiz i'm dreamin' my life away.

gooood afternoon!

thank you all so much for your sweet comments yesterday, i went to bed with a grin.. and woke up with one too for that matter! today i will be finishing up "project cake pops." this weeks batch will be perfect hopefully.

do you ever listen to a song and have it just bring you back in time. i was running to pandora this morning and that suuper overplayed song by jay-z came on and it brought me back to 2010 when i worked at lucky strike on 12ave and they would play it over and over. i lived in brooklyn here in this tiny room. and YIKES this was my street. and my day job was at this wacky upscale kickboxing gym on madison ave that was "super exclusive" in a basement. that is why i love music. 1 song, and a plethora of memories!

okay, enough rambles! i'm wearing lavender here because it is my latest obsession. i wore this to school on tuesday and i got a funny look at starbucks. i didn't mind. have a good day!

p.s. use the code "ofthemoment" for 30% off my store til' tomorrow at 12pm!

blouse: vintage
bow tie: h & m
shoes: forever 21

p.p.s for old times sake, here's some pictures of when i lived in brooklyn :) yes, i used to have blunt bangs. tis' true. AND i, like everyone else, had a blackberry.

music has the exact same effect on me and that's why I love it. All the emotions and memories brought on by music are the best part of listening to it :)
I actually really like blunt bangs on you! never imagined you with them though! haha.
looking very pretty in your outfit :)

oh i love this look! and i'm insanely jealous that you managed to snag a pair of those mary jane platforms from f21!

i agree with you about music. i have an hour drive to work and i love the drive just because i can sink into listening to music and let my mind wander.

great photos, great post!

who's giving you funny looks? Tell those people they need to get with it, you look so super cute. PLUS, hearing music from even just a few years ago is always such a nice reminder of how much we've grown :) Even if those songs are silly overplayed top 40 hits!

People always give me strange looks too; they really need to get with it! ;P I love this outfit, really sweet looking. I've been considering getting another pair of glasses and have been eyeing Proopticals!

And I love "flashback" posts; always so interesting to see how people change. I just did one recently and was surprised by how different I looked/behaved/etc.
