Today marks the first time in the history of ever that I am posting about the outfit I am wearing today. Like I mentioned last time I was here, I spent the weekend with my girl Stephanie. She flew in from California on Thursday, and I just took her to the airport this afternoon :,(
But I don't know if I mentioned that she is a brilliant photographer. Or that I thoroughly exploited her while she was here. You could have guessed that, right? Expect a slew of photos by her to follow.

If you're a blogger like me, your first priority is just getting photos and making do with the best ones. If someone with talent can take your pictures, that's awesome. But a pro with a UNIVERSITY DEGREE in photography? Shut the front door.
I'm house-sitting right now and it comes with the most amazing screened in porch. It was totally dark in here yesterday while we were combatting stormy weather. Dark enough to where if I tried to take pictures out here, game over. But she's the best! I honestly think it is magic that the lighting in these is so dang nice. Thanks a million, Schepy! More about your weekend (and many more pictures you took) here in Nashville later! If you're interested in seeing more of her work, ch-ch-check it out!
Ah yes, the outfit. Remember when jeans and a top was your bread and butter look (circa 2nd-10th grade?) And then you stopped wearing it completely because wearing a dress made you look like you put some thought into what you were wearing?
Well, everything old is new again. Just a super simple look, with three pieces, that I think works great.
Funny story about these jeans, here's the first part: I'm obsessed! I am a believer in jeans again!
Last weekend when my sisters were here, Friday afternoon I was at work, and they were running amuck. They came back to my office with matching Seven jeans. Carina laments, "These were on sale and look amazing. Aw, we should have bought you a pair! I totally would have gotten you some for your birthday! Sorry!!"
If I am to be perfectly honest with you (alternation titles for my blog: "perfectly Honest" OR "And I'm Still Getting Birthday Presents") I was pretty determined to go back by the store and get a pair. Sometimes you have to make your belated birthday presents happen! And this time, they did.
Oh! I nearly forgot; the punchline of the story is that by the time we went back and bought them, it was on Carina's actual birthday. That's right. She bought me a pair of new jeans for my belated birthday present on her birthday. Because she's the best.
Today also marks the first day of my "back-to-back-weekends with out of town visitors" rehabilitation plan. Leftover pad thai, New Girl, and that screened-in sofa is calling my name! Bye!!
