OOTD – #SummerBloggerChallenge

Blogging, Life

Once upon a time I had elaborate dreams for this little blog, back before I even started posting. I thought I’d post all about fashion, with daily outfit posts. But I’d also talk all about books and lifestyle! Not to mention I’d start cooking all the time and become a master at home cooking and post all about that as well! Clearly….that’s a bit TOO much to juggle for one girl and one blog! Instead, while I bounced around a bit in the beginning, I’ve basically finally landed on a blog about a bookworm’s lifestyle. So, on that note, I haven’t done an outfit post in what feels like AGES, so this is a nice little change of pace for the summer challenge!

Skirt: Gap // Hat: J. Crew // Shoes: Francescas // Jacket: AEO 
While I share this outfit, I will also share a funny (yet embarrassing) story of a past weekend occurrence. Let me set the stage: One of my boyfriend’s old room mates, and a recently made friend of mine, moved into a new apartment pretty close by. He wanted to explore the area so we took him out. It’s late (for me) about 10 o’clock and we are in a nice, semi-swanky, bar/restaurant combo. (With an impressive selection of drafts and really nice food) As am I not a beer fan, I didn’t have anything to drink, but instead used this opportunity to go to the bathroom. Down the back, not quite well lit hallway I go, past the kitchen door, and find the women’s room. I press on the handle and it doesn’t budge but a centimeter. Clearly it must be locked right? I glance at the men’s room, it doesn’t even HAVE a handle, it’s just a push door. Well then, clearly the women’s room is locked. I wait, a good while, 3 men have come and gone from the men’s room and now another, older, lady is standing behind me in this already cramped hallway. The kitchen door opens and a server asks, “did you push on the door?” I reply with “Well, the handle doesn’t move…” and she comes over and just pushes the door open. Well. Nice to know. 
Oops. 
I also entered some designs into a contest for a local non-profit, GTech, event! It’d mean a lot to me if you could support me! You have to like their Facebook page to vote, but that’s not too big of a price to pay! They do great things! VOTE HERE! Today is also the last day to vote!!
My entries are numbers 2, 3, and 4! 
Thanks for your support!
