MUSTARD SEED

 
 Top - Volcom, Necklace - Accessorize, Skirt - New York & Company (thrifted), Rings - JewelMint

I thrifted this skirt one day in NYC on the upper east side. Best score ever. And for only $20. It's in a most covetable shade of mustard seed, and the tiered, pleated scallops make it that more intriguing to me. I love a good statement skirt, and this one fits the bill.

This work week has been so busy that the hours just fly by. It's kind of crazy. And it's on Wednesday today. But I love the feeling getting a good days work done, being proud of it, and spending nights with my friends or doing simple things just for myself, like going to the gym or reading a book.

In other news, today is my friend Cheryl's birthday! Wish her a happy birthday :) We went out to see Friends and Neon Indian play last night and it was AMAZING! So happy to have this girl around. We always have so much fun together!

Happy Birthday to your friend! :)
I love Neon Indians, they must have been pretty cool to see.

Also, yay for thrifting scores. Last week I went hunting too (sans bow and arrow) and found an amazing 50s dress for only $12 and a mustard tweed skirt. I think the new season of Mad Men may be inspiring me a bit...

Oh wow that skirt is perfect and the colour of it!
