A Random Thing Or Two-sday

7.22.2014




Tee: Madewell.
Denim: LOFT
Shoes: Old Navy
Headband: Forever 21
Sunglasses: Free People

1. I am living in tees and cropped denim this summer. It's easy, takes no thought, and can be styled with a bright accessory like a headband or scarf.

2. Fact: Women speak about 20,000 words per day. That's about 13,000 more than men (source).

3. Who watched the "Men Tell All" on The Bachelorette last night? I think "Women Tell All"  is always more entertaining because of the above-mentioned fact, however I liked this one. Mostly because of the lie detector test results. (I'm looking at you, Marcus!) I reaaaalllly wish she would've opened Josh's lie detector test results. I knew Josh lied! I just knew it!

4. Wes is THIS close to crawling. It probably has something to do with the plush carpeted floors here at my parents' house. (I wouldn't want to crawl either if I had to learn to do it on wood laminate floors... first world baby problems.)

5. Would you rather live in a decked out tree house with all the fixings, or a house boat that had to be at least five miles out on the water when you came home from work and outings?

It's summer time, and the livin' is easy, especially when you are spending time with your family! We are in Heber at my folks' house for the next couple of weeks, so it might get a little quiet around here on the blog, but I will be overgramming my way through this vacation, so you can follow along with our adventures on Instagram here or @alongabbeyroad!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends! xo

A Random Thing Or Two-sday

7.15.2014

Top: similar
Skirt: similar
Shoes: Old Navy (on sale!)
Watch: ASOS

1. My thrifting escapades have been slam dunks the last few times. This fabulous skirt was only $6 and they were having a half off sale. I didn't even know thrift shops run sales! I take that as fate smiling upon me.

2. Fact: The brain operates on the same amount of power as a 10-watt lightbulb (source).

3. Have you seen Colbie Caillat's new "Try" music video? I couldn't love it more, and want to give her one of those hugs where you practically tackle the person because you hug em' so hard. If you've been reading this blog for awhile, I've shared my sentiments on body image, my face with no makeup, and learning to be comfortable in my own skin, and I think it's an incredibly important message to spread among us women.

4. These pictures of people from history and their celebrity look-alikes are amazing.

5. Would you rather have delicious edible hair that regrew each night, or retractable wheels on the bottoms of your feet?
