I’ve never really noticed before, but it turns out that our back alley is a fashion blogger’s dream. I think someone who enjoys taking outfit photos more than I do (and has more fashion sense) should move into our apartment just for the endless backdrops. I can’t believe last weekend was the first time I noticed it!

Joe and I headed up to Minneapolis two weeks ago for Jason and Ali’s graduation. Typically, I wear gym shorts or sweats in the car if we have a long road trip in front of us, but since we had plans to meet up with friends when we got there, I decided to dress things up a little more than usual. I’m still not sold on this blazer, since it’s a bit big and a tad longer than I would like it to be, but I do love a mis-matched pattern here and there. This skirt and top is my absolute favorite way to wear patterns that don’t seem to go together.

Other notes: After editing these photos, I committed myself to using self-tanning lotion more often. My legs are white enough to scare everyone away!

When Friday night rolls around, the last thing Joe and I usually feel like doing is getting dressed up and going out. Usually we end up taking Nutmeg on a walk, putting comfy clothes on and getting a movie from the Redbox. But this Friday night, we made ourselves presentable and went out. And by going out, I mean washing my hair, putting on wedges and going out to Mexican followed by a trip to Costco and ending with a McDonald’s ice cream cone.

It’s a crazy life we live, I tell you.

…but I kinda wish I was. Although there are plenty of amazing, high-end fashion bloggers out there, it wasn’t until I started reading Kendi Everyday that I really got inspired. Kendi is so real, down-to-earth, funny, and she wears clothes normal people can actually find and afford. She’s totally my girl crush, can you tell?

I am, by no means, the expert when it comes to dressing fashionably. And the idea of posing for a camera makes me a little goofy…

I realize that you don’t come to Espresso and Cream for fashion posts, but if I posted an outfit every now and again, would you be terribly opposed to the idea?
