What I'm wearing to a BBQ in five minutes

Tuesday, June 15, 2010
Eep! I'm supposed to be out the door right now but I wanted to do a quick post of what I'm wearing tonight. Lately, Chase and I have been busy with yard work, digging trenches, and enjoying the pool. I think it's safe to say then it's probably a good thing that I haven't posted in the past few days. It's hard to look cute when you're dirty and sweaty.

Wearing J.Crew Outlet tee (gift from my mom), thrifted skirt ($3), belt (from one of my dresses), and Seychelles mary-janes ($15).

Random trip picture of the day:
Food vendor in Hong Kong. Soooo delicious even if the only food I recognized was hot dogs.
