It's a fact, I'm fully on the peplum bandwagon. If wasn't convinced earlier, the new 3 peplum tops in my closet tell me I am now. What your clothes don't talk to you? Well in my sleep deprived case they do. And let me tell you, it's a nice reprieve from the voices in my head.

So Long Weekend

Weekend Update 
I had planned to get this post up earlier, but my photoshopping and typing skills were still resting from the weekend. Although they're from the past few days, it's funny how much these photos basically sum up my entire summer {I'll be mourning the end of summer as I go back to school today tonight...}

Hung out with friends, check.
Played games, double check
Enjoyed catching up on my backlogged DVR {and finally found who Honey Boo Boo is}
And my soon to be fall obsession, Fantasy Football.

Well it's been real summer. Despite your frizz inducing humidity and your ability to keep me up more hours of the day than I'd like - its been a blast. See you again in another 9 months.

*side note, I know there is technically almost a complete month left of summer but for me school = the end of my freetime/life/ability to watch tv etc.

 I've been looking at the screen for a good half hour trying not to lead with the fact that it's Friday. But honestly, I have nothing better than to state what day of the week it is. But, at least it's Friday and not Monday, right? I'm looking forward to my last weekend of freedom and plan to fully take advantage of a homework less, no reason to wake up, fun filled weekend.

Lo and behold the necklace - the necklace I have seemingly been on the search for since the beginning of time for 2 years. While it's not the Anthro original, it is best doppelganger I've seen.

In other news, I'm getting ready to head back to school for my 2nd {and hopefully final} year of my MBA program. Having the summer off has been amazing, but I'm looking forward to powering through the year and wrapping up my degree. Although the next 6 weeks of my life are looking dismal. If posting is sporadic, you more than likely can blame the 4 classes I decided to cram into half a semester. Sounded good at the time, but my social life is already guilt tripping me.

Fall Wishlist


Bag // Jeans // Blouse // Wedges

We've been enjoying unseasonably cool weather here in Cincinnati recently {says the girl ignoring the 90 temperatures on the horizon for the weekend}, which has gotten me thinking a lot about what I'd like to add to my closet this fall. While I'm not always particularly good at shopping with intention, I'm going to try to put more thought into what I need for fall rather than just simply buying what's on sale/what I like at the given moment. The above are a few pieces I have my eye on for fall. I'm thinking red & blue will be my go to colors.

What are you shopping for this fall?

Don't adjust your screens, I am in fact wearing double dots today! And in true blogger fashion, I got the inspiration from another fashionable gal. Apparently, my obsession over prints is going nowhere fast. Not to mention I've added leopard pants and a few striped tops to my closet in the last week. Things are looking pattern friendly for fall for this girl.

 Green vest, meet my blog...Blog, meet my new green vest! To say this is the start of a beautiful  relationship would be a bit of an understatement {I've already outlined a good amount of fall outfits  - see my first outfit here}. If only all of my relationships could go as seamlessly as my the ones I have with my clothes, I'd be set. But then again, I'd have to start actually having relationships {I'm talking romantic ones here, don't think I'm friendless} to make that statement.

So yeah, let's just scratch that relationship statement all together and instead I'll go find the perfect spot in my closet to hang this lovely.

Edit // I neglected to link the vest to Old Navy. Silly me after writing a whole post about it, I forgot to tell you where it's from. Old Navy :)

Loose Interpretation

I'm playing it a little loose with my interpretation of monochromatic for today's Everybody, Everywear. Blue pants and a top with blue in it - works for me! Actually, my collection of solid colored tops {other than my trust v-necks that is} is dwindling to the point of extinction. It's all mostly patterns in this girl's closet. So maybe for the fall, I'll make an effort to add a few more classic tops to my closet rather than adding to my hordes of stripes, florals, and animal prints.

Sticking with a favorite again, I stuck with stripes for this outfit. Apparently, I'm just in a favorites kind of mood. I enjoyed my favorite dinner {breakfast for dinner} and re-watched the latest episode of my new favorite TV show {The Newsroom - any other Jim Harper fans out there?} last night. If I hadn't finished all the ice cream the night before, I would have had that too.

There is quite a bit of pattern mixing going on here today... And I like it! This outfit reminds me a bit of what 5 year old Liz would wear - all of her favorite things at once. I think I could survive just fine with a closet full of stripes, polka dots, and animal print.

Survival by pattern mixing, sounds like just my kind of thing.

Let me introduce to you to my backyard.
Apartment living at it's finest, right?

I even got all classy and cropped out the dumpster. Maybe next time I'll sweep up the old leaves. But I'll be honest, yard work isn't my favorite past time.

How was your weekend?

Mine was filled with baseball, olympic style celebrations, and a few cocktails.
Not to mention a Charlie Sheen appearance.
All in all it was a good weekend!

This skirt is proof that pretty things often go missing in my closet. Okay, missing might be an exageration. But fallen to the bottom of my closet and hidden under other fallen pieces is not.

Fallen or not, I still can't believe I haven't worn this since April. Maybe next time I can't seem to find the right outfit in the morning, I should go digging through the items on the floor. Or maybe I could just clean. But digging sounds more fun, right?
