I've been trying not to buy anything; I really have. That said, I, like most women I would assume, have always lusted after Free People pieces. Of course, as a struggling 20-something, I've never actually been able to afford anything from the brand. So when I stumbled across this mint crop top at Nordstrom Rack recently with a $20 price tag and a Free People label, how could I resist? It's a beautiful piece, and as I mentioned previously, I've been trying to build up the shirt part of my wardrobe after realizing that it was lacking. I could just wear dress and/or skirts and bras forever, but I don't think I'm ready for that kind of attention. I need to at least secure a full-time job and be taken seriously professionally before I go down that route. So until my topless journey begins, I'm spending the few dollars I'm allowing myself to use on tops. I'm not quite sure how the joke reached this point, but I'm just going with it.
Nothing too exciting is going on over here other than working on internship stuff from home, a meeting with my boss in Venice, babysitting my adorable nephew, and hanging out with my friends Adam and Jon. This is actually what I wore when I ended up spending time with them the other night, which really just consisted of long conversations and followed by us challenging each other in Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones trivia in Quiz Up on our phones for far too long. I don't mean to brag, but my group of friends has a bit of reputation for being wild and crazy. You know how it is.
As for my daily pop culture recap to hold you over until my next pop culture post, I've been all about Comedy Central shows at the moment ("Nathan for You" is one of the funniest things I've ever seen, and obviously "@Midnight" is fantastic), catching up on a couple of graphic novel series that I'm behind on (I will finally be up to date on "Fables" after months and months), and listening to a ton of podcasts. Kumail Nanjiani's "The X-Files Files" is pretty much my jam right now, and I'm also really into "Harmontown."
Yes, I do have too much time on my hands. Why do you ask?
