Black on black

express top, ily couture necklace, thrifted belt, express pants, sam edelman flats.

I know these bubble necklaces are a bit overdone but I love how they spice up an otherwise plain outfit.  I love a classic black on black look, but I just can't help adding a few pops of color.

In other news, three day weekends go by way too fast.  Darryl & I have been doing a (mostly) paleo diet this past month so we made some new recipes this weekend, watched a lot of The Walking Dead, and I got a new tattoo because I'm hardcore (obviously).

Only Wednesday

Today I tried to convince JD to take pictures with me but he was not having it.

h&m top, target skirt, report heels.

I know it's only Wednesday but my brain is absolutely fried.  At work we have this amazing program starting this week through Labor Day where we can leave at 3 pm on Fridays.  Thank goodness because I think I'm going to need a nap before starting my weekend.

In other news, today was a pretty good hair day so let's celebrate that, yes?

Happy Anniversary to my favorite person in the world.  And many, many, many more.

Seeing Red

[target t-shirt, ily couture necklace, j.crew skirt, payless heels]

Welcome to my first outfit post!  Also, my patio.

Today was my first day back at work after a whole week off.  Whenever I come back to work after a break (or let's face it, the weekend), I don't want to think too hard about what I'm wearing.  A pencil skirt and a t-shirt is so easy, and the big necklace makes it look like I put in some effort.

What I've been up to lately.

So in case you didn't know, I used to have a blog.  For my last year or so in college, I'd post pictures of what I wore that day.  I don't have much talent in the photography department, but it was fun, and I made a lot of amazing friends in the blogging community.

I stopped for a couple reasons.

I moved to Arizona and got busy.  Like working 60-70 hour weeks busy while trying to finish the CPA exam and also planning a wedding.  Excuses, excuses, I know.

Well, I'm finally done with my exams.  And we've taken a break from wedding planning (more on that later).  I'm finding myself with all this free time and I'm sick of wasting time on pinterest and reddit.  I miss blogging.

So I'm still debating what it is I actually want to do with this blog.  The outfit posts were a lot of fun (and I feel like I will have a lot to contribute now that I'm in a more professional environment).  But I also want to show more of me and what else is going on in my life other than just what I'm wearing.  Hence the new title, Lydia in real life.

I can't really think of a good way to end this so here's a picture of my dog.
