Break Time

Alright… I’ve officially decided to take a blogging break. I started out thinking I knew what I wanted this blog to be about and now I just have no idea…. I have too much on my plate right now. So I am done for awhile. I just feel exhausted with the whole idea and I want this to be an enjoyable thing.

I will still be following all of my favorite blogs, which you can find over there ——>  I don’t know if I will come back to this blog or start fresh one day, maybe when I don’t have to work so much and can actually take time to smell the roses, and maybe take a few pics while I’m at it… I’ll miss the comments and the few friends I’ve made. Remember you can always send me an email or follow me on Twitter!

 

Happy Blogging!

-Jade

“wedding bells”?

I assume there is some history behind “wedding bells”, but I never hear any bells ringing at any of the weddings I’ve been to. I can imagine being announced husband and wife and the church starts ringing it’s bells, how super cute and romantic… anyway! Our dear friends Eric and Diana tied the knot a couple weeks ago, it was a really nice ceremony and it was so much fun to dance all night with all our friends.

However, finding something to wear proved to be a bit of a challenge. I had an idea of what I wanted but had absolutely no luck for weeks! Finally, I went into Zara and found this beauty shoved into the sale rack. I love wrap dresses, something about them is so sexy, I dunno. Anyway I fell inlove and had to drag myself away before I bought it in all three colors… haha.

Oh, and don’t let the pictures fool you, it is purple. For some reason in every picture we took it looks just as blue as Mel’s dress. Weird

DRESS – Zara, SHOES – Report (my new favorites), HAT – Vintage(Nicole and I swapped for the night, mine is the brown one)

 

Two more things;

1.) My hubby was in the bridal party and looked so handsome!

2.) Why the heck didn’t anyone get pictures of me being twirled around by our inebriated guy friends???? Those are the pictures I want to see! haha

Such a great time, Congrats Eric and Diana!

Outfit 07/09/09

YAY I’m posting! Oh blog, how I’ve missed you! I’m so glad to be back! Now, I’m gonna take this slow and start with just updating like twice a week, cuz I so easily let myself get overwhelmed with eveything I do all week… OK, enough chit chat, on with the outfit pics!

This is what I wore to our dear friends’ rehearsal dinner at The Elephant Bar in Irvine…

TOP – Forever 21, SKIRT – H&M, SHOES – Borrowed from Nicole, RING – Forever 21, POLISH – Sephora’s “Maniac” “I’m Wired”.

I love the rope detail on this top, it’s a racer back and so cute, I couldn’t get a good pic of the back though and ran out of patience, so you’ll have to take my word for it ;)

The waist detail on this skirt is so great, and I pretty much love everything with pockets. Nicole and I always gasp and squeel “pockets!” whenever we shop together. We’re awesome, what can I say?

I had this exact color polish in mind when I entered Sephora, pink with an orange hue, and they totally delivered… Next day I found this ring in almost the exact same color, so great.

More to come, very soon.

Ciao

Pic Update

As usual my life has been crazy busy and I won’t get into all the details of work, yoga, bible study, friends wedding…. just know I miss blogging and I am going to make it a point in these busy times to at least give you guys a few pics or something! So here are a few to hold you over till next time.

First was Diana’s Bachelorette party, we went wine tasting in temecula, and I loe this picture because it shows how different everyone style is, love it! Missed Nicole that day but she was up in Nor Cal for a wedding… boo.

Diana's Bachelorette

I’m the one in the bright pink, incase yopu forgot what I looked like in my absence…lol

I wore a shirt from who knows where, (which I love and you will see more of soon), Bandage skirt from “No Rest for Bridget” ( little boutique at Bella Terra in Huntington Beach), a vintage gold belt, and my “knock-off Marnis” (at least that’s what I like to call them) from GoJane.

 

Next is a pic from our friend Denise’s 1980′s Bday bash… I however did not dress up (which is totally unlike me, if you know me at all) because my hubby and I fell asleep at 730pm and woke up to a bunch of missed calls and texts… so we pulled ourselves out of bed to join in the fun for a bit.

Nance 80s Party

Striped tank from FV21 knock-off outlet, highwaisted shorts from H&M (you’ll see more of these soon as well, I’m in love), Oversized jean jacket borrowed from Nicole’s BF, and purse from H&M.

 

More to come soon, I have a rehearsal dinner tonight and a wedding on Saturday, so I’m sure pics will be coming. Plus both my outfits are super cute so I will force someone to ake pictures if I must.. haha

Till later!

The King of Pop

I was so sad last night, all of us in the office found out right away about Michael, but it didn’t really hit me till I was in the car driving home. Every radio station was playing their tribute to MJ, and I realized that he will forever be remembered as a man that shaped what our music industry is today, he was and is such an inspiration.

Michael was so troubled, his whole life. No one can ever truely know what he’s done or been through, I can’t stand the horrible jokes that have gone on for so long. I can’t stand that his image will forever be tarnished by things that may or may not be true. As for me, I hope that he had some peace, and happiness in his life. 

 

I choose to remember Michael like this…

James Perse

This blog … Because I’m Addicted reminded me of how much I love James Perse’ clothes. Every piece is extremely versatile, whether going from day to night, beach to bar, summer to winter… A lot of their stuff reminds me of American Aparrel actually, super cozy and breezy fabrics, loose fits. However, I have no money, haha, so for now I will just drool and hope I win something over at BIA!

Things I would LOVE by James Perse…

would be amazing with a pair of heels!!

Eeesh…

That’s all I can say about my lack of posting lately… work has been ridiculous and it’s really got me thinking. I’m going to be 25 this year (I know I’m still super young, yeah yeah , blah blah) and I haven’t done anything! I mean, I have an amazing husband, a great job, I got my yoga certification… but when do I get to start living?

We want to travel, I want to actually have time to take a yoga class for myself again. I want to learn to play the guitar and take acting/singing lessons. I want to be at a place where I finally feel like “We’ve arrived, this is our life”… Does that even make sense? I’ve decided to make a list of my goals for the next year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years… I’ll keep ya’ll posted.

So for now… here is a little fashion inspiro from miss MK Olsen. This is all I want to wear, everyday, forever… haha or at least until work mellows out a bit.

Much love! Thanks for sticking it out with me…
