It's 11:11, you wanna talk?

Today was a super busy day! I had to run to work, run home and wait for the roofer, meet up with Amanda to go to Home Goods, AC Moore, Target, then to the mall to see Stacy, then to Amanda's mom's for dinner, and home again. PHEW! Now I am sitting on my bed (currently in the living room due to the leak), watching Sex and the City, with Floydie laying next to me on the coach snoozing away.  Back to work tomorrow! My days off always seem to just fly on by!

P.S. Notice my title? Well look at my watch in the one picture... lol!

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in.

Oh Irene, how I loathe you so. 

Last night, Jared and I were prepared. I spoke with my aunt in OBX and she let us know about how bad it was and how we should prepare since we haven't been through anything like this. We had out buckets of water and food ready. We were all ready for a relaxing night; Jared rented a movie and I sat down to start reading The Help. Not more than 10 minutes later, I hear a drip, drip, drip. It is our ceiling in the living room right where the window meets the wall. It is bad enough we are already sleeping in the living room because the section of our roof in our room is leaking from the last time it poured and we are waiting for the roofer to come out and fix THAT, but now the living room too??!!! It was really frustrating, but we made it through the night.

How did you survive Irene? What did you do?

Summer's almost gone.



Today was a beautiful day in Philadelphia! After days and days of rain, Mother Nature has given us a nice day. I actually don't mind the rain so much-- I wish my roof weren't leaking so I could actually ENJOY the rainy days!

These pictures are from when my family came up from OBX. My beautiful cousin, Jackie, took these pictures and they came out amazing! Jackie and I have similar taste, so of course I was gushing over all her easy breezy, beachy chic wardrobe. The first set of pictures were when Jared and I took her to the city; South Street, University City, and Geno's of course! The next set were from when we all went tubing down the Delaware.

Have a great week everyone!

Nothin' but a hound dog.

(Can you see the Philadelphia city skyline?)

Introducing the love of my life.... FLOYD THE BEAGLE! He is actually napping next to me as I type this. Jared rescued him from the Women's Humane Society, and at first I was hesitant. Now, I absolutely ADORE him (even though he is naughty sometimes). On this particular day, Jared and I took Floyd to the park. I opted for a light button up and some kick around shorts since I knew we would be sitting in the sand.

Isn't Floydie such a good model?!!! Such a cutie!

Style Inspiration: Lauren Conrad

While I was on my vacation from work, I did not go anywhere. I did go to the beach one day, but all the other hot days not spent at the beach, I had to live vicariously through old episodes of Laguna Beach and The Hills. The funny thing is that I NEVER watched these shows in high school/college when everyone else did; I only recently started to watch these and by doing so, fell in love with LC! I don't care what people think, I think she is awesome!! I also recently found a site she collaborates with called the beauty department which gives awesome hair/makeup tips.

I love her girl/beachy/relaxed style and I wish that I could pull it off as well as she can. Oh, and HELLOOOOO perfect waves???!!! I would give anything to master them on a daily basis. I seriously would LOVE to leave near a beach, I love the lifestyle. One day, one day.

it's you I need in the summertime.

These pictures were taken right when I dyed my hair darker. I was going for the Kate Middleton look, ahaha. Now it is a lot lighter and shorter. I literally had a birds nest when I pulled my hair to one side, so as sad as I am that I had to chop my hair, I am happy that it is healthy. 

On to the outfit... I LOVE THIS DRESS. I bought it a few years ago and absolutely love it! It is sweet in the front and modern in the back. I wore this to work so i would probably swap out the flats for some sandals or pumps, depending on what I was doing that day/night. 

Don't forget to "LIKE" outskirts of the city on FACEBOOK!

I'm missing you to death but it's all for the best, I know.

Finally some outfit pics! I know, I have been slacking. I have been so busy, and it is hard for me and Stephanie to meet all the time for her to take pics. On this particular day, I handed my camera to the lovely Stacy Elise Cabin who snapped this outfit for me. We were catching up over some delicious food from Chipolte.

The past couple of days I have been hanging with my family from NC and a lot of my family from PA, too. My cousin from NC and I are going to Center City tomorrow, so I am sure I will get some outfit pics in then. Now, time for a nap!
