Spaced Out

As usual, I had such a nice weekend, and it's almost unfair that it needs to end and another work week has to begin. I spent Friday night getting ice cream with my friends, and then I spent all of Saturday with Jon. We got breakfast at my new favorite breakfast place by apartment and explored the Old Town area nearby. I dragged him into helping me take outfit photos as well, because when you have a boyfriend, you might as well make him useful for something, right? He was a great sport helping me find the only shaded spot at 1 p.m. to this set, and he did a damn fine job if you ask me.

This skirt is one of things I got in a recent sale, and I'm in love with it. I've been wanting to buy something from Hello Holiday and try a Rock Steady piece for ages now, so it only make sense to buy a Rock Steady skirt from Hello Holiday. The store is a particularly worthy small business to support, and I even got to interview Meg, one of the owners, for my internship with FAB Counsel last summer. Meg and co-owner Sarah are just so damn cool, and I've always admired how much of themselves they put into their business. I could probably buy every single thing in their shop, but I ultimately went with this killer space/robot printed skirt and a rad pair of shoes that I'll show in my post on Wednesday. This outfit was perfect for an incredibly hot day that, of course, resulted in smoothies. I couldn't ask for a better Saturday than one filled with space themed skirts and smoothies.

The rest of the weekend was spent watching Parks and Rec with Jon, who I finally convinced to watch it, running errands, planning more of my upcoming Portland/Seattle trip, and getting milkshakes with my friend Adam. I also finished watching through Dead Like Me (which I loved) and made the mistake of watching the movie. It. Was. Awful.

  2. Such a unique print. Love it.

  4. What a cool print! I've never checked out Hello Holiday before now, but their front page already has me hooked. Also, I had no idea there was a Dead Like Me movie, but now I'll gladly avoid it if I ever come across it.

  5. I'm pretty sure this is the greatest skirt ever! That print is amazing!

  6. That skirt is so perfect on you! Glad that you got the boyfriend to watch Parks and Rec - so awesome. My boyfriend and I are already planning on that being the first show that we watch together when I move back to Pennsylvania in October :)
