For the love of food (and maxi skirts)

Tuesday, June 28, 2011
This past Friday I wore an H&M white shirt ($10), yellow scarf (gift from Melissa), Forever 21 maxi dress-turned-maxi skirt ($5), and Target clog sandals (gift). But let's get to the good part.... FOOD.

I was really anxious and frustrated so excited and happy on my way to pick up Chase after work so I demanded suggested we go get some frozen yogurt right that second for a little date. We were stuck in traffic forever had a nice little drive through L.A. and found Crumbs! And then I was happy. (I got the Milkshake cupcake. DELISH.)
Then we saw a sushi restaurant and decided we wanted sushi. (We always want sushi.) But it was too expensive for us so we found a cheaper and better one a few streets over. We got so excited we ordered a little too much that our waitress had to ask us if we were sure we could eat that much. We said yes. And then no. And then yes again. And then no once more. I'm glad we said no. I'm paying for those cupcakes and sushi right now. I'm doing squats as I type this.

  1. You look adorable!  I love how you tied the scarf into a bow.  That's one I have never tried before.

    And those cupcakes look amazing! Now I want cupcakes :)

  10. I love, love, LOVE the idea of turning a maxi dress into a skirt. It's such a nice look with the crisp, white t-shirt.

    And ahhh driving through L.A. I lived in L.A. for two years and loved it. And wait a minute, I think I recognize that sushi place. The name eludes me but OMG, it's affordable and cheap! :D

    Enjoy the sit-ups... :/

    Blessings,
    This Good Life

  13. I love how you wear white tops so often! Question: what do you do about underclothing showing through? I run into that so much that I've stopped wearing white tops, which I love!

  20. I hope that by shoving all of this fantastically delicious-looking food in my face, what you are really doing is offering to send me some.  So I will take 1 Squiggles, 2 Cookie Dough's and a Red Velvet.  Like, yesterday.

  38. Love the maxi. How are you keeping your body outline(not sure what else to call it) from showing? I tried on a maxi skirt at Express and felt like a hoochie mama.

  40. Oh, you are truly a woman after my own heart!  1) Dessert fixes everything.  2) Dessert always comes first! 3) Sushi is a good second.

  41. I really like the pop of yellow from your belt. That food all looks so good, and is reminding me I didn't eat dinner.

  42. Whew!!!  The comment box is back.  It was so strange.  First, I couldn't even see the line that above says "46 Comments".  So I thought the post was closed to comments (same thing happened with your last post).  But then I could see it, but nothing happened when I clicked on it.  Now I have access again.  Did you miss me??? =)

    Ahh you look so thin and tall in maxi skirts! Love the way you tied the scarf to make it a bow belt :) The food looks amazing! When I'm in LA next, I'll have to swing by Crumbs and see how it compares to Sprinkles!
