Necklace? Some little boutique (here in silver and in grey) Shirt? Zara Jacket? Costa Blanca Vest? Thrifted Boots? c/o Aldo (they are 50% off now!) Jeans? Rich and Skinny, thrifted Pics? Merl

Merl surprised me with a visit this last weekend. I mean, surprised as in 'hey girl, I'm driving up tomorrow!', not like she jumped out of a cake or something. She did however, catch me unexpectedly because she drove with a heavy foot (my foot is much lighter and I need a bathroom break every hour while I road trip) and I was actually vacuuming upstairs when she came in and made herself at home. Gave me a heart attack, she did. One of these days I am not going to wait until very last minute to get my house in its 'pretend we got it together' state before company comes over.
Or I am just not going to clean and let my friends accept me for who I am. I change my mind about my shoes 4 times before I leave the house, I still drink Diet Coke (sorry mom) and I own and love a few cats. My house reflects these characteristics. I don't even know why I put up a front for Merl, I'm pretty sure she leaves a trail of cat hair, diet Pepsi bottles and necklaces everywhere she goes. No wonder we get along so well...

Wow that fringed vest is the bomb, brings so much attitude to the look! Another huge fan of diet coke here! Sounds like you take care of your guests, that's nice!

Cee. ♥

My husband does the same thing, the minute he knows someone is coming over (even if they're just stopping by and not staying) he goes into super cleaning mode. I tell him our friends and family won't care if there are a few magazines on the table and the bed isn't made. As long as their isn't moldy food sitting out and we have a good supply of toilet paper I think we're good.

Thank god im not the only one who goes into this cleaning mode when someone is coming over :) You look lovely and it looks like you just had too much fun with the fringe vest!

That girl can get anywhere in half the time it takes a normal person! And this is one of my favorite posts, I just love the purple in the background and every.single.thing you're wearing. You are one fine broad.
