the Summer Romper

The weather has really been warming up, to the point where it's been almost unbearable. I suppose that's also due to the heat in conjunction with the pollen.

In any case, I've been wanting to buy a short jumper/romper thing, but I haven't been really looking. Monday of all days, I was wandering the mall when I saw a really cute jersey romper at Express! (I usually don't shop Express, but sometimes you can be surprised.) So I've been on the hunt for rompers since.

So, first is the express romper in that slate gray I love so much.

Then, this is a funky one from MODcloth. I like the loose cut, but I'm not so sure about the pattern. I think it's too dark, personally.

Third, is a pretty unique one I found on eBay from Bows and Arrows Vintage. I like the batwing top with the shortness of the shorts. I like the funky detailing. I like the color, but I'm not sure if I'd really end up wearing it.

Lastly, is another eBay find from Trendsetter Vintage. It looks really simple. A clean cut and summery print with bold colors makes this one pretty attractive as well, but I'm not sure how I'd fit in this one.

I think I'll keep an eye out for more romper finds. I'm definitely not committed to anything right now. I'll keep my options open. I'm having fun looking...

Our Ghetto Apt

So I always say to myself that I'll take more photographs, but I never really get around to it for one reason or another. But a while back I actually took some pictures of our college apartment, and I didn't realize how ghetto it was until I saw it in the photos. What do you expect? It is a college apartment. We're poor and don't give a shit about a place we know we'll end up abandoning.

So onto the evidence of our ghetto palace...

where I sleep

where I cook

where I eat

How ghetto, right? I am so glad I'll be out of here in a couple of weeks.

I really haven't posted in a while. I guess that's just a testament to how mundane my life is. In any case, it's not like anything new or exciting has been happening in my life. Well, I check blogs everyday for constant inspiration, but I haven't had much to gush about.

Recently I've been in with Polyvore and have just loved it. Although, that might have been a week or two ago. The passion has faded and now it's more of like a steady admiration. And now, in the face of a huge paper I should be writing I have decided to blog about it for the sake of procrastination.

I am absolutely in love with the black and dusty pink color palette. Too bad I don't own anything dusty pink. It is just one of those colors that I have not been too fond of until very recently and only in combination with a rough black. I would love a dusty pink boyfriend blazer. That would be lovely for me, except I am currently in no position to be spending money, unfortunately. But, of course, I can wish.
