& the world spins madly on ...

I'm posting again, yes. =] I like the freedom of being able to update my blog more often now that I'm home. I also have to make up for the fact that I'll go on another small hiatus starting this upcoming Saturday as I'll be in Vegas til the 12th. I've probably exhausted you guys with the mentioning of this trip, I know. Haha. I'm just so ridiculously excited.

My boss gave me a Fujifilm Instax Mini today as a very late birthday present (my birthday was in August) and I'm seriously in love. I've always been a huge fan of Polaroid pictures but didn't even know Fujifilm made a Polaroid camera 'til earlier this year. Luckily, my boss is awesome and heard me obsess over this for a while and bought it for me! I'll definitely let you guys know how it works out with my new found love.

Even looking at a picture of it makes me all giddy inside. I'm upgrading to a SLR camera hopefully within the next couple of weeks but I absolutely adore my new toy. And now that my obsession has subsided (for now), I bring you to the real reason I'm posting. Care to see the picture that inspired the outfit?

This is a picture of a building in my town that faces the water. I don't know why but I'm fascinated by it every time I pass by it. I think it's because to me it looks like a ship. Do you guys see it? Maybe I'm just a little crazy. And now what I wore ...

I apologize that it looks like I'm being blown away in all of these photos. The wind was ridiculous! I found it difficult to keep my hair out of my face and then just gave up. What do you guys think? The sweaters and jeans are from Forever21, the shoes are from Aldo, and I'm not entirely sure where the accessories are from. I have quite the collection of necklaces dating back to when I was 15 so it's hard to remember where I got most of them. Sorry! =/ Now I'm off to watch Pretty Little Liars before I go to sleep. Is anyone else as obsessed with this show as I am?! I mostly just want the teacher, Ezra. (Sorry B =p).

Hehe you look so cute being blown away by the wind! I have the same camera but I had to buy it for myself, you're so lucky! You will be so addicted...I have this theory that a polaroid can never turn out bad...I can have 100 photos of me looking terrible on a digital camera but somehow one shot at a polaroid turns out looking good! Also, I totally thought that building looked like a ship coming up to a harbour...its not just you :) Thanks so much for commenting on my blog lovely x x x
