you can go with this, or you can go with that

This week has been full up, trying to fit everything in before I start working tomorrow. I'm a bit nervous for my first day at the magazine because I have no idea what to expect, and to make matters worse, I still don't know what I'm going to wear!
Been running around downtown a lot lately. I'm having a mini renovation done on my rooms at home. I'm most excited for the new closet that I'm having installed, but there are so many options, I'm going crazy! This is a very casual outfit that I wore today, running around the hardware store. I started off with a leather jacket on as well but it was just too warm.

Wearing Levi's men's shirt, Kain tank, BDG zipper jeans, UO hat and Limited Edition John Lennon Converse. These shoes have one of Lennon's sketches on the side. They were limited edition and I wish I'd bought 10 pairs!

  23. Lucky buy on those John Lennon converses. They look so casual, but yet they're still in perfect condition. I love your tank top. I'm loving anything sheer at the moment.

  24. Good luck with the mag stint. As the person who deals with the workies in our newspaper office, stay keen, if there's really nothing to do, ask if there's any filing, anything that can be done for the next issue, just be keen, keen, keen. Go in with some ideas, be prepared to suggest things that might sound silly. They might, but people will know you're keen to have a go.

    ReplyDelete
  25. wow . you look very beautiful . i heart your photos . i put you on my favourite blogger .

    *hope we can be friends .
