Mondays just keep getting closer together



Shirt: Belk, Blazer: Thrifted, Scarf: Old Navy, Shoes: Steve Madden, Belt: F21, Ring:F21
1. I wore a black and white striped shirt underneath this blazer. You can't really see it, but I assure you, you've seen it before. Just visualize.
2. I'm actually a day behind on the outfit thing. Or ahead. I'm not really sure, all I know is I took pictures of #25 today. GEEZES!!! Almost done.
3. Paper. Almost. Finished. Maybe I can have my sane life back now. We are getting tired of stressed Ramsey around here. Make that stressed and schizophrenic Ramsey.
4. I just had to google how to spell schizophrenic. And I'm still not sure I spelled it right. Bed time.
5. I think face masks and manicures cure a lot more than we give them credit for.
6. I made myself black beans and rice for dinner. In a coffee cup. It may be one of my favorite comfort foods ever. Dusty should know that he is lucky to have found a cheap, easy to please girl.
7. I'm fresh out guys. Night!

Dude, it's a tractor and a tidbit of wisdom




Dress: Target, Scarf: Old Navy, Belt:Thrifted, Boots: Madden Girl, Necklace: Gift/Marianna, Watch: Vintage Gucci, Ring: F21

I'm a farmer guys. Or at least I rode a tractor today. Which kinda makes me a farmer. And you know you're a farmer if you have a picture with a tractor. So there. By the way this is not what I wore. I know, I read your mind on that one.

I was a little stressed out today {and may have had a slight/not so slight, tearful emotional breakdown} so I told Dusty at dinner that I just needed to make a list. Because that's what I do when I'm stressed, as if writing it down will keep it from clogging up my already-foggy head. Dusty offered his advice on the listmaking process which goes as follows: "When you make a list, you should always add some things that you've already done or that are easy to do so that you can cross them off and feel good about yourself. And then your list is already half done and you feel super productive." This is either ridiculous or really brilliant. I'm going with brilliant. Notice his additions to the list. Little stinker.


One more thing, I need all of you techies to climb out of the woodworks and help me get this tutorial video upload crackalackin'. Seriously, 8 hours were spent today trying to upload the thing and Youtube finally got tired of trying and gave up on me. Same thing with Blogger. So if you guys have any advice, comments, or weird stories, I'd love to hear them. Thank ya much!

Button-up: American Eagle, Skirt: F21, Belt: Thrifted, Socks: Target, Shoes: Steve Madden, Watch: Vintage Gucci, Ring: F21, Shades: Old Navy

I'm closing in on this thing guys! Yay! The rest of my closet has been feeling really depressed lately from the utter neglect it's been facing. I've been sifting through my drawers just looking at alll my lonely clothes and planning what I'm going to wear as soon as I get the rest of my closet back. My spring/summer clothes are getting pretty psyched about the whole deal. I'll be honest though, I've become pretty attached to the denim shirt. So you can pretty much expect to see him a lot more. Like maybe every day. Or every other day at least.
I was pretty proud of myself for making it to Saturday morning Zumba despite the candy hangover I woke up with. Two points. We finished our Saturday with a date to Home Depot {can we say romance?} Then we mowed down some Steak and Shake. Mint Cookies and Creme, I love you.
Alrighty guys, this is a day late, are so gonna love me because I have the video tutorial finished {YAY}, which I will hoooopefully post tonight. Ching!

Dear Weekend,

Tank: NY and Co., Jeans: Belk, Belt: Target, Scarf: Old Navy, Shoes: F21, Bracelet: Premier
It's seems like it's been far too long since we saw each other last and I'm really thinking we shouldn't wait so long for next time. I think we've got a really good thing goin' on.
Not to be cliche, but Thank Goodness It's Friday! For realz was a llloooonnnnggg day. Fortunately, Dusty hit up CVS after work and bought this arsenal of Easter nom noms to make me feel better. Is it shallow to allow your moods to be so drastically effected by treats, or just fat?
Just so we can clarify, I did stick to my 30 yesterday, but it was seriously dark by the time I was able to take pictures, so you'll just have to toss me a trust card. Or basically it's pass go, collect $200 on wearing it again. Today wasn't much better, but I took these anyway because I can't stand to be so stinkin' behind on this 30 deal.
Right then, I suppose that's all.
P.S.: Peanut butter m&ms are basically the best things ever. Seriously, go buy some. Like now. And then eat them and talk about how awesome I am for telling you about them. Or don't, it's kinda whatever.

Button-up: Belk, Belt: Thrifted, Jeggings: Wal-Mart, Necklace: F21, Flower: Made by me, Shoes: F21, Headband/Earrings: F21, Bag: D&G

This outfit made me feel like I should be cruising down the highway with my lovie in my vintage red convertable without a worry in the world.

Only, I had class . And my lovie was at work. And I don't really own a vintage red convertable. Details, details. I really think professors should just cancel class altogether when it feels like this outdoors.

I did, however, take the liberty of giving myself permission to sleep in and skip my rather unnecessary {watching a movie} first class. The weather was just too nice not to take a walk and soak up some sun! I also had lunch with my sweetie before I headed off to campus. And we found this awesome, random pile of bricks to take pictures on. So take that professors. Muhahaha!


This little darling {The car, not the man. Though old men in cute little caps driving vintage, red convertibles are rather darling.} was in front of me on the way to class. Not creepy at all to take pictures of the guy driving down the road in front of you. Right.


Oh, and some of you guys have been requesting a little tutie {tutorial}. So I'm taking requests. Singing is out. That only takes place in the shower.

I'm a bookworm


Cardigan: NY and Co., Denim Button-up: JCPenny, Necklace: NY and Co., Belt: F21, Pants: F21, Shoes: Rocketdog
But only for boring books. Namely textbooks and academic journals. Fun fun. Thank you college.
So it's pretty impossible to conceptualize a 30 piece wardrobe that will prepare you for any weather possible when the high is in the 40's. If I had chosen Spring clothes it would have ended up freezing. So, your welcome North Florida. I jinxed the weather into being warm. You can thank me in accessories to help me through the rest of this 30.
Basically, I've been forced to narrow my 30 down by about half in order to avoid roasting in this sudden {and much appreciated} warm streak. I'm thinking a gold star for my dedication. So forgive me if my layering is nilch and I start wearing the same thing every day. I promise to launder it at least once a week. Maybe twice if people start complaining.
By the way, thanks a bajillion for the awesome response to the phone case recommendation! You guys rock! I think I'll start asking for recommendations more often. What's for dinner tonight guys?

Hello tomato legs!




Dress: F21, Belt: Thrifted, Shoes: F21, Scarf: Old Navy, Watch: Vintage Gucci

So yesterday was just 100% fabulous! Please weather, do stick around! I promise we'll spend every afternoon just like yesterday, napping in the sun. I'll bring the lemonade.

The nap, however, may have resulted in the above pictured tomato legs. Future reference, don't sit in the sun without sunscreen when your legs look like fresh butter. Perhaps after a few more days of this wonderfulness I'll look marginally less like a crab. Or not. As long as this sun and warm stuff sticks around I will proudly waltz around with my lobster legs. Ha! Take that cold weather! {I may be craving seafood right now.}
Also, yesterday morning, Dusty and I decided to go to the early service at our church where the 9-12 year old kids were leading the music service and wowzer was it amazing! They were unbelievable and the service was great to boot! Such a great way to kick off a Sunday. Then {because we are pigs} we picked up breakfast at the always classy Burger King and sought out a picnic table in the shade for eating. Hello Springtime!
Happy day!
P.S. Any of you guys know of a snazzy iPhone case {etsy seller perhaps?} that you would recommend? I'm looking for something different/cute/vintagey. Well, you guys just have at it.
And we might have noticed that I'm a day behind on this, which means you'll see today's outfit tomorrow and Wednesday I'll go clothesless so that I can catch up.

I'm officially a techie now


Guess what guys. I got completely spoiled today with my graduation gift from my mommy and dad! iPhone 4! Holy poops! {Remember old definitely non-rad phone from previous post.} I now consider myself officially rad. And Dusty is a wee bit jealous. Because I may have more apps than him. Lemme just tell you this thing is stinkin' awesome. There goes my chances at being productive for at least the next week.




T-shirt: F21, Jeans: Belk, Scarf: Old Navy, Belt: Thrifted, Earrings: Charolotte Russe, Bracelet: Premier, Shoes: Steve Madden, Shades: NY and Co.
Mom and I decided to play tourists on Florida State's campus today and take some college "senior pictures." So yeah, here is the place I call home. Go Seminoles! Whooo!
And if you want to know how I feel about graduating:


Ok, I overdosed on sushi today {Lunch and dinner. Oh yeah. I'm committed.} so I'm off to bed.
