It seems as if all I wear is black these days. I think it all started from watching Gallery Girls. Being put together is not really my style, on a normal day I look like a hippie child - think Mary Kate Olsen minus a layer or two. I'd probably wear some beat up old chuck taylors if I wasn't going to work. This skirt is probably the most worn item in my wardrobe - count on it! Whenever I am in a rush or don't feel like getting dressed I throw it on with a sweater + head out the door. It's getting a bit short but I'm not giving up on it just yet. Any who, I finally wrote a list of things I want to do in 2013. They are not resolutions, just a few items to keep me on track with my professional + personal goals. It's already a whole page long + I keep adding. I'll share mine if your share yours! #1 on my list is to take yoga, kickboxing + photography classes :)

Alexia wears: Hat: F21, Denim + Bag: vintage, Dress: Fancy Treehouse , Flatforms: Deena & Ozzy (similiar here + want these )

Ripped tights aren't exactly dress code at my sometwhat corporate job, but a huge hole tore thru mines while in route to work on Wednesday morning + gosh darn it was way too cold to take them off! Ok, that's not exactly the whole truth but if anyone asked that was my story + I was sticking with it. I knew the hole was there but my dress somewhat barely covered it that morning. I didn't consider that it may stretch throughout the day. I wouldn't mind such a rip on any other day but at work it's like a HUGE eye sore! I stayed at my desk more than usual + prayed that my asymmetrical cardigan covered when I got up. No one mentioned it so I'm in the clear.

My dress is from Fancy Treehouse, a BLOG + STORE by the lovely Cory Combs! Please go visit!!

Riding into Eastern Market is becoming one of my favorite things to do w/ Cedric on Saturday afternoons. This time around we went to the capitol first + then headed over to the flea. We always stumble on something new when we go into DC. So far we’ve come across two bakeries, an organic food market + Matchbox (best pizza). The temps were so cold this weekend that we only stayed long enough to rummage through the racks of some quaint vintage boutiques that I found on the way from getting a soy chai latte from Port City Java. We were going to eat in the city but my hands + feet were on ice so we decided to head to our favorite eats @ Cheesecake Factory. It’s hilarious that I still manage to eat there after being an employee two years ago. I should be sick to death of cheese + cake but I guess I can’t get bored with 200+ items on the menu. Any who I’m looking forward to the warm front coming in this weekend, maybe I’ll hit the flea + snag some goodies for my upcoming retail biz.
