Summer Daze

A cliche title for a cliche post on the beauty of summer. I was scrolling through Vogue Italia's website (the usual) when I happened upon photographer Ambra Pegorari's portfolio. Some of the images were too beautiful to not share; they ooze summer time sweetness and remind me of how much I love long sunny days spent outside. These are definitely the kind of photos I would love to be able to take one day. 

Speakin of summer, I've also decided to go on a bit of a summer detox, considering I am still carrying the freshman fifteen and feeling quite large. It's nothing as drastic as a cleanse, but there will be a lot of hot yoga and tea involved. I'm excited.

A Case of the Lazies

Lazy Day

Lazy Day by bamitssam03 featuring a black bag

This morning I woke up fully intending to conquer the ever-growing number of things on my to-do list, beginning with a trip to the gym, followed by the 6 piles of laundry I have leftover from unpacking from college, followed by phone calls to boring insurance agents. Instead, I spent my day watching three episodes of "Law and Order SVU" and last night's "Jeopardy," downloading new music, reading my brother's copy of the Sherlock Holmes volumes, and baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Of course there was some intermittent blog stalking and online window shopping, but ultimately my ass has been firmly glued to my couch  since about 9AM. Surprisingly, I don't feel as guilty as I thought I would for coming down with a case of the lazies, perhaps because I've been to the gym everyday since I returned home from college. Maybe I'll regret my inactivity tomorrow when I step on the scale (because when I say I was "baking cookies" I really mean that half of the cookie dough went into the oven and the other half went into my tummy), but alas there's nothing I can do about it now.

Anyway, this is totally the kind of outfit I would've worn today if I had actually left the house. I've been loving mixed prints as of late, and am craving a good (comfortable) pair of basic heels. Too bad I can't afford them (or anything).
Why am I so poor??
Oh yeah, college.
