Busy, Busy Girl


My Ruche booties!

This is what the table in front of me looks like.  Good thing you guys can't see it on air!

Cardi &Boots - Ruche; Shirt - Walmart; Shorts - AE; Ring - Spotted Moth.
 *pardon the pics.  All I had was my old point and shoot and it was dark*

Monday was day one on the set of another music video that I did (you can read about that here).  And it was another hot and humid day.  To top it all off, I had to be up bright and early, and be prepared to go right from the music video set to Movieola to host a live on-air evening shift.  So, I decided to go for cute but comfortable.  Shorts and a sweet cardigan *it's cold under the AC in the studio* and the Ruche booties are so wonderfully comfy.  They're slowly becoming a go-to item for set days.

Tidbit:  I liked these boots so much I recommended them to my mom and she ordered a pair!

Forgive Me?


Hey, I know I haven't posted in a while, and that's because I've been crazy busy.  I'm so excited to tell you all about it!  And to post all the outfit shots.  Unfortunately, you're going to have to wait just a little bit longer.  But trust me, it's going to be soooo worth it!

I'm posting this from another computer not my home one, so I don't have a chance to edit my photos and post them.  Forgive me right??

But in the meantime, I seriously need you to check out the web series I'm doing.  It's awesome!  Check out the mini-episode "TheVoice"  to learn a little more about my character - Dorothy Ascher.  And then check out the third episode called "The Past" to see a brief cameo by me before Dorothy makes her grand debut! 

Tell me what you think!

Yet Another Day


Shirt - Old Navy; Belt - Spotted Moth; Jeans - Guess; Shoes - thrifted.
Today is another rainy day with Baby teething and cranky, and Mama really tired.  So again, I didn't get dressed.  To be honest, I didn't even have a chance to shower yet.  So here's another outfit from a couple of days ago.

And don't you love the awkward pose?  I'm just full of awkward!

Oh and I made those bars I mentioned yesterday.  I'll show you probably later tonight or tomorrow.

Brightly Colored Shorts


Fedora - Cuba; Sunglasses - F21; Shirt - AE; Belt - AE; Shorts - Ruche; Loafers - AE.
 It's rainy and because of a lot of things I haven't gotten dressed - just jeans and a clean shirt *at least I think it's clean*  But!  It was beautiful and sunny a few days ago and I wore this little number, but I hadn't had a chance to post it.  So here it is folks!  I absolutely adore the ruffles on the shorts and I have to say that it's my first foray into colored shorts.  Only about two years ago did I start wearing shorts, and they were always black, but now not only am I wearing shorts, but they're also brightly colored!  I love how fashion evolves with you.

On another note, I've been looking for a dairy free, soy free protein bar because I often need snacks and food on the go and I can't really find one.  People have suggested things like Larabars, but to be frank, I don't like them.  So I've concocted my own little recipe (it's actually a twist on a recipe I came up with years ago) and I'm going to make them tomorrow night once I get all the ingredients.   I'll be sure to post them and show you all how they turn out.  And most importantly, tell you how they taste. 

Simple and Effortless


Shirt - Smart Set; Jeans - Mavi; Shoes - AE.
You know I usually like to dress a little more interesting.  I like patterns and vintage and dresses and skirts.  But! I had a general audition yesterday.  I was auditioning not for a specific role but more to showcase what I can do; so, in that vein I wanted to look as neutral and versatile as possible.  Hence, the simplest outfit you can get - dark jeans and a t-shirt.  I like this simple, and effortless look, but for my own personal style I would add a fun scarf, or cute cardigan, or make the shirt a band shirt.  However, if you're ever in a rush just throw these pieces together and, if you can, add some simple silver jewelry and you'll look casual chic. 

And now to our regularly scheduled wacky outfits...

So Cute It Will Make You Sick


Guess who's just the cutest thing ever???

Victoria Day!


Cardi - H&M; Shirt - Esprit; Belt - Hadley Pollet; Jeans - Gap; Shoes - Etienne Aigner; Socks - Calvin Klein.
I wore this yesterday to the birthday party yesterday. It's been very weird weather: very humid, rainy and alternating between hot and cold.  
Makes it really hard to style an outfit.

I gave Drake the Dog a haircut, but since I didn't get a chance to finish it he looks a little silly.  But still really cute. 

Random Sundays: Garden Party!


Chives and Bok Choy.



So I promised to show you my garden last week and have been very negligent in fulfilling my promise.  But finally here it is!  I'm so excited!  It's the first time I'm attempting to grow anything.  If I can manage it, it'll be the first plants that I have manged not to kill.  I'm kind of a black thumb.  No, seriously. 

On another fun note, we got Baby a little wading pool and so far the verdict is still out on whether she actually likes it.  I'm sure once it gets sweltering hot she'll love it!

Today was one of her boyfriend's birthday parties.  And let me tell you it was pretty cool to see the kids playing alongside one another.  They don't really plat with each other yet; they kind of crawl over and around one another right now, but it's still pretty cute. 

Fun note, I met one lady who reads my blog *Hi Stephanie! You looked great,  by the way* and it made me all embarrassed.  It's weird to meet someone who has read about me, but that I haven't met in real life.  Cool, but weird.  It made me feel all bashful...like my underwear was showing *which you never know, it might have been*

One Cute Handful

Seriously, Baby's into everything!  My Mama and Babcia said to me that she's not going to be a quiet, calm child sitting in the corner with her book or crayons, she's going to be active and mischievous.
And a handful.
They're right.   

Out to cause trouble with the recycling, or Drake the Dog's food.

That used to be my bookmark....no more.

Backyard BBQ


A teaser of my outfit...the hat wasn't a part of it, just my go-to sun protection.
  We really took advantage of the day today!  I had a run in the morning, and later we spent most of the time either in the backyard, on a walk or *wait for it*  watching Baby in her baby pool *shots of that later*  We had a lovely BBQ dinner out in the yard, and Baby loved gobbling up her chicken, and veggies while occasionally tossing some over the side of her high chair to Drake the Dog. 

And I promise I'll show you my garden soon! I swear, I haven't forgotten.

Baby's still not used to the grass.

When You Fall...

Jacket - Old Navy; Shirt - swapped; Belt - ?; Skirt - ?; Shoes - Aldo

I was trying something new with my camera and it kind of failed.  But oh well.  If you don't try, you never learned.  So I messed with these shots as much as I could to stylize them a little.  I promise better ones are on the way!

This is the outfit I wore yesterday to the last day of the music video shoot.  But I forgot to take shots yesterday, so I quickly jumped into it today to snap some pics.  And of course, today's outfit is on the way.

So, I got yet another email saying that it was between me and another woman for a role and they went with the other woman.  Bummer.

Guess I got to pick myself up and get back on those horses.

Husband Always Gets My Best Side


Jacket - Jacob; Dress - Esprit; Belt - Hadley Pollett; Tights - gift; Wellies - Petite Pied; Bag - Matt by Matt&Nat.
As you know Husband takes my photos when he's home - otherwise it's me and the tripod.  But whenever he shoots he always nabs shots of me making the silliest faces.  Usually I choose not to use them, but sometimes I just have to! 

It seems like my most used accessories for the spring are an umbrella and wellies!  And yesterday was no exception.  I'm becoming a pro at styling for the rain...maybe not.  Do you know what I'm loving though?  Soft, pastel *gasp* shades for nail polish like the pale green I'm wearing in the pics.  I'm eager to get a baby blue as well.  Any recommendations? 



Sweater - made by my Babcia; Shirt - H&M; Tank - Gap; Necklace - F21; Jeans - from Spain; Boots - somewhere in NYC.
Sorry I haven't been able to post in a while.  I've been trying to organize my photo archives and have been distracted getting that up and running.  And then I was on the air last night hosting - thanks for tuning in those who watched - so I relaxed and enjoyed myself there.  Today, I had a great lunch with a fabulous friend as well.  and so the days have simply gotten away from me! 

But I'm back and good to go and ready for action. 

I just discovered Etsy! *well, not really*  I had used it before but I just discovered the fabulous assortment of vintage clothing you can get there!  So excited!  Just browsing is sooo much fun!

True Story: Baby loved eating her lentils and rice this evening!  And surprisingly, most of it ended up in her mouth!

Windstorms Of Amsterdam


My mind is all a flutter today.  It's a bit of pathetic fallacy, what with the rain and wind outside, but it's also a bit situational.  You see in the past while, I've been going to a string of auditions and getting this close to getting the role in each one.  And it's starting to get me all in a whirlwind.  Husband said that I should be proud that I got so close, but I say, "Does anyone remember the guy who got this close to playing Obi Wan?  Or Han Solo? No."  There are no runners up in acting.  Hence my brain is clouded and whirling.  It's not a negative place, just a questioning and confusing place.

So I thought it fitting to share with you my shots from Amsterdam.  The graffiti *random, chaotic art*, the weather while I was there, and the thoughts going on in my head at the time were all very similar to what's happening up in my head right now. 

Hope you enjoy the pics!

Random Sundays: April (or May) Showers Bring Spring Flowers


I was going to show you my garden today, but alas it's raining cats and dogs today.  That's great for my veggies and stuff, but not so good for taking the camera out and snapping shots.  So for now, I thought I'd show you some fun and dandy things that have been making themselves known in my backyard.  *I snapped these a few days ago before the rain*



Zip-up - Walmart; Jeans - Guess; Socks - Calvin Klein.
I'm not one to whine and complain.  Sometimes things aren't well.  Sometimes Baby won't let you sleep and the whole day gets on your nerves.  I did get the garden done, or more like my Mama got it done for me and then told me all about it. Thank goodness for Mamas!  I'll show you the pics tomorrow.  

Have a great Saturday night!

See y'all tomorrow!
