Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Nice Lens

Ray Ban_Calico_Gap_Mia_coverAs I was getting ready to head out the door, I got scolded. “Take that off immediately” said the mister.  He was appalled and insulted. How could I possibly wear a Nikon when we shoot with a Canon (#cannonforlife)?  My rebuttal:  “But it’s cute!” He just shook his head in disbelief.

I quickly shook that negativity off since I was on my way to one of my favorite places: SOWA. This busy summer has kept me away. But finally, I had a free Sunday and that was at the top of my list of fun things to do. But first, Mo and I had to stop for a quick bite to eat at Gaslight. I had just come off of a long run and needed nourishment. A girl cannot shop on an empty stomach. Hangry, much?

It turned out to be a gorgeous day. We left the markets with some fresh flowers and #ootd pics. I mean, what is a blogger’s day out without a quick photo shoot down an alley?
