A few days ago, we had some really spectacular nice weather. Seriously, it was getting to the point of being TOO hot. It’s cooled down now, but here are some pics from those days. See the new bathing suit? I got it for like 10 bucks on ebay… never been worn! Cool, yeah? I thought so.

Two days in a row my friends and I walked down to the freezing cold river and took a dip. It was utter bliss. It’s so unfortunate that I spend winter in this beautiful place and then go back home when it’s nice. Not that I don’t love Chicago in the city… but seeing as I ,really live in the outskirts with my dad, it’s not very fun in the summer, there’s no where outdoors-y to go! Sigh. Oh well, it will be nice to be with my high school friends again.

So, my darlings, what styles are you looking forward to this summer? I’m particularly interested in how you feel about bathing suits, but tell me about everything that’s sparked your interested! Comments help me grow!

Love you,


Today was a lazy day. I literally did nothing. Which is a shame because I look cute, damn it. I really like these tights, and this sweater is a christmas gift.

Sorry for the general crappiness of these pictures… I really need to find a well light place to take these photos without wounding my own pride. Hm….

In other news, I went on a real date with the boy (I’m naming him Mr. Popular) last night. We ate sushi and argued about whether or not the phrase “March: in like a lion, out like a lamb” made sense. Obviously it does, he’s just a crazy person. I had a lot of fun, and I hope that he feels the same way. I like him a lot, but I have this strange intuition that he’s not going to make any sort of moves towards commitment any time soon. I mean, I know that we are at that point where if either of us hooked up with anyone else, confusion and anger to be had. But an actual “Hey do you want to be my girlfriend? Be facebook official?” conversation? Hasn’t happened. And even though we’ve only been hanging out for about two weeks, and that’s not very long, I still feel like he’s never going to initiate this conversation.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “well then maybe you should start the conversation. Take charge! Be a woman!”

Well, I know this is terrible, but when it comes to relationships, I am not a feminist. I am a very, very old fashioned girl. I like boys who lean in for the first kiss, and open doors, and want to drive, and ask me out on dates, and order at restaurants, and at least try to pay (sometimes splitting is good.), and asks me to be his girlfriend. I know. It’s pathetic; guys like a girl who takes charge. Well, too bad. Suck it up.

Maybe that sounds a little silly and harsh. Maybe I should get over myself and take charge. But I just can’t do it. I like things that way. Plus, he would probably be weirded out by me asking, no? I dunno. Ugg.

What do you Darlings think? Should I ask him, or wait to be asked? Let me know in the comments.

Is what my waitress at Ed Debevic’s this afternoon, where I went to said lunch with my dad’s girlfriend. Now, if you don’t live in the area, then you probably need me to explain Ed D.’s to you. The style is 50’s diner, and the waitresses are supposed to be rude. They throw your straws at you, make fun of your meal choices, and snap their gum at you. Our waitress stomped over to us, shoved hats on our heads, and snarled, “There, now you look cuter!” To which my dad’s girlfriend responded, “hurry up with our food!”

I went there with my class in 5th grade, and they let us dance on the bar. So yeah, the place is great fun.

After that we went into the shopping district and walked around, complaining about how broke we were and how much money we would spend on clothes if we were rich. Here are the stores we went into:

Diesel: cute stuff, pretty pricey. Not ridiculous, but more then I would spend on a regular basis. A lot of darker colors, very hip. Had a very “I’m not trying at all, I just threw this on” feel to it. My favorite dress was this one: DRAFIL

Urban Outfitters: This store lives to make me crazy. I loved nine out of ten pieces in there, but of course… I was to broke to pick anything up. Here are some die-fors:

Floral Circle Dress

Kimchi Blue Vintage Tweed Dress (Although I admit that one looked better on the hanger than it does on this model… hmm)

Kimchi Blue Floral Fit and Flare Dress

Silence & Noise Satellite Moto Jacket

BDG Chambray Button Front Skirt

Kimchi Blue Madras Skirt

Along with many, many other things.

We also went into a few other stores that we happened to see, that we had never heard of before. All of these ended up being insanely priced. (500 bucks a thin t-shirt) So that was highly amusing.

Finally, we hit the Ugg store. So here are my soft new boots:

They feel like heaven on my feet. 🙂 I think it’s funny that the little card in the box says they keep your feet at body temperature in the hot and cold. I can’t imagine wearing these in the midsts of summer!

But I’m still bittersweet about the fact that I don’t have endless amounts of money to buy clothes with. =P

Oh well!
