il finale

Hey y'all. So this semester is almost done and it can't end soon enough. However this semester has proven to be my toughest yet. My GPA is really going to feel the pressure once grades are posted.

So since I will be studying all weekend starting tomorrow, tonight we shall toast. I'm going downtown with some friends I haven't seen in a while. I don't go "out" often but when I do I always enjoy myself.

One thing I do like about Austin is how casual most parts of downtown are. I feel comfortable in some shorts, oxford and loafers.

I better chill a bottler of Pellegrino for tomorrow's hangover.

Toe Expose

Hey y'all. So, like most of us, with summer comes rainbow flip flops. I wear my rainbows almost daily. They are easy to slip on and off and, like everything else with preppy style, look better with age.

I am lucky enough to have a part-time job and a boss who allows casual dress (which includes shorts!). Now, even though I am tucked away in a cubicle punching numbers into a database 98% of my workday, I do occasionally venture out of my cupboard and cross paths with the main boss every so often.

That being said, I doubt he, or anyone else to be frank, cares to see my toes. Not that I don't maintain the appearance of my flanges. I take pride in my feet, they are always clean and maintained, and sometimes even attractive I would say.

However, even I realize toes are almost as inappropriate as cleavage in the workplace. Both have a place and time for exposure, and it isn't at the break room.

So what is one to pair with a pressed pair of chino shorts and Brooks polo? Ideally, it would be a pair of these woven Cole Haans. Just imagining those on my bare ankles gets me giddy. But seeing as how generic grape jam is a current major food group of mine, I had to settle for a look alike. I found a pair very similar at a salvation army while looking for shorts the other day.

Before your dinner revisits you, I assure y'all that they were brand new and not worn, or so they soles
would appear to say. Either way I sterilized them and now my very VERY casual office summer look is complete.

Until I have another free night, later y'all.

It's been a while

Hey y'all. So I have taken some what of a hiatus from the blog world. School has gotten the best of me and I have grown inconsistent with my normal routines.

I started running, as I have mentioned in earlier posts, and joined a gym. I met my goal weight!

Nonetheless, it's starting to feel like summer here in the South, which means it's time to pack up the jeans and hike up the shorts! Most of my shorts from last year are getting pretty lose around the waist thanks to some heavy cardio and lack of funds for proper nutrition (pb&j and hard boiled eggs are the bulk of my diet).

Well just thought I'd like y'all know I'm still alive.
