Friday Recap (yes, already)

Friday, April 22, 2011
Today I wore a maroon scarf (gift from a blog friend), H&M white shirt ($10), Old Navy brown belt ($10 - buy it!), secondhand Gap flared jeans ($9), and Target clog sandals (gift from my in-laws) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3). My belt was also slowly coming undone and nobody even told me. Just because I sit all day doesn't mean I don't care about how my belt looks. But I guess no one knew that.

Chase and I went to get Chinese food in Chinatown tonight and it was horrible. Worst $10 we've ever spent. It may have had something to do with the fact that our dinner was $10 and it could've fed 20 people and/or dogs.
So we went to Little Tokyo and bought some mochi to make us feel better about spending our money unwisely. Mango in my right hand and chocolate in my left hand (and my mouth). DELISH. (And, yes... I did change. Two outfits in one day isn't enough for this girl.)
Then Chase made me figure out how to get home by myself.
He found me.

  8. I came to the conclusion last night that there is no good food in Chinatown and it gets me so mad. My boyfriend spent $30 on our lousy dinner last night so you and Chad got off easy! I wish we'd thought of mochi in Little Tokyo afterward. Next time we'll try going out to Monterey Park or San Gabriel... Chinatown and there is no good Chinese food. Grr...

  16. I am loving your new haircut. I got rid of the bangs recently too. The maroon scarf is totally rockin. Too bad in Florida its already 90 and humid so the idea of scarves here make me cringe right now. I actually miss scarves and tights weather. I am a bad Floridian. The pic of you peeking out of the train is super cute.

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL, you two are such a great couple. I hope Chase had time to get on the train before the doors closed (lst picture). I love mango, but I think the chocolate mochi would have mysteriously found it's way into my stomach first. I was going to comment that your hair looks great, but if I say that every day and then one day don't, you might think there's something wrong with your hair that day--at least that's how my wife's brain works...or maybe she's just teasing me ("Oh, so my hair doesn't look good today!!!). =)

  29. I am in love with your scarves! And I would much rather see you in casual clothes that you feel comfortable and confident in than all done up and not be you...besides a simple canvas is a great way to showcase those scarves!

  30. You guys are too cute! Zany married hijinks are the best.

  31. That last picture made me momentarily freak out because I thought your head would get snapped off the the subway doors. I've seen too many scary movies (which is like 5. I can't handle them obviously)
