wearing today

worn: 12.30.09

yes this is an outfit from last year (whoa!) but hey, better late than never right? I mean it was only last week! Well I decided to wear one of my Rodarte for Target dresses with a whole lotta black. I just like how the pattern on my dress pops, plus the material is really light so it’s easy to layer or I can wear it in the summer! Continue reading

wearing today: 12/29

The high today was 19 degrees fahrenheit. I didn’t want to wear pants so I just layered. And by layered I really mean my tights. I wore tights over tights. In addition I wore a few shirts underneath my dress. I stayed relatively warm all day, luckily I was inside for almost the entire day as well. For a few of the pictures I used a timer, and the picture quality came out surprisingly well. You amaze me everyday my dear camera… Not gonna lie though I think that I might have had too much going on today. It’s all in the details but when the details are too much the picture gets muddied. In my defense, I thought that the ruffles on my dress where an interesting contrast to my flannel shirt. But I wanted to do double tights all along! Continue reading

fashion remix: tights with tights

I was just thinking the other day that wearing a pair of tights over another pair of tights would be a cool way to remix your clothes. It also can help keep your legs double warm when the high of the day is in the teens! I think it’s a good way to mix things up. Continue reading

I do love dogs, but these two little Yorkies have captured my heart these last few years. Their names are Butzy and Emma, they’re my bf’s sisters dogs. They’re sisters! They don’t really act like dogs… more like little toddlers. They’re quiet but they like to play and hang out with everyone. Much of the time you can find them on a soft surface napping.

Butzy!

These girls are definitely in my top 3 favorite dogs!

dim sum

I finally got some dim sum on last week with my bf! It was soo yummy!

What is dim sum?

Dim sum is the name for a Chinese cuisine which involves a wide range of light dishes served alongside Chinese tea. Yum cha (literally “drinking tea”) is the term used to describe the entire dining experience, especially in contemporary Cantonese. It is usually served in the mornings until noon time at Chinese restaurants and at specialty dim sum eateries where typical dishes are available throughout the day. Dishes come in small portions and may include meat, seafood, and vegetables, as well as desserts and fruit. The items are usually served in a small steamer basket or on a small plate.” -Wikipedia (!)

If I could say one set of food was my favorite, it would be dim sum. It always makes me feel happy thinking about it because growing up I would go have dim sum with my family pretty often. I used to have dim sum with my grandmother every new years day, it was our tradition. I don’t get to continue that tradition with her, but being able to spend time with my other family members having dim sum still makes me happy. The food is good and the company is always good which makes having dim sum one of my favorite things to do.

I don’t even have one favorite dish. I have like 12 favorites!
