Hi! Here's a simple outfit from when I met up with some family in Florida a few weeks ago, back when it wasn't 40 degrees outside. We met up with my sweet cousin Glory for dinner that Saturday, at a very hole-in-the-wall Thai place, which turned out to be awesome, as they so often do. 

Seems like without fail when I'm packing, it's last-minute, I'm in a rush, and somehow my brain can't function in a crunch to plan an outfit I'll love later. This however, worked out perfectly! This button-up that I *ahem*, inherited, is seriously an MVP in my closet, it works with everything. 

These pictures were taken in my brother Sundar's backyard. I woke up from a nap to "A Message" by Coldplay playing, and this beautiful sunset lighting outside. I know I've written on here before about how I like to collect "Moments 4 Life" (term credited to Nicki Minaj & Drake), simply put, moments where I have the thought "life is awesome". I like to really try and remember them, and save them for later when life is feeling less awesome. I might sound like a ridiculous fairy or something but I'm telling you it works. Start a page in your journal for "Moments 4 Life" that you collect. The song is also really catchy.

 Thanks to my little nugget Amir for taking these pictures for me! Always willing to help. I am planning to drive to NC to see him this weekend, and just can't wait to hang. 

Hope you guys are having a great week so far! My evening looks like Fall shopping (mainly for Huntee with some possible goodies for me), dinner at Amerigo's, and some Breaking Bad. I almost feel silly about how much I've been looking forward to date night tonight. Seems like Hunter and I are constantly hanging out with friends, but it's been a while since we've had a "classic date night" experience. Also, yeah, I'm picking out some new clothes for him. All my fashion bloggers know what's up! Today's the last day I can use my Old Navy Super Cash, so we put this date in my planner because I'm neurotic. I can't wait. 

Thank you for reading!

The tied button up look always seems to work for you... love this!
I write down the ON super cash dates in my calender too because I forgot about it one time and I promised myself to never let it go to waste again! Larry is one lucky man this month because I decided to use it on him this time. The poor fella was seriously slacking in the long sleeve department though. All he had was old button downs. Have fun on your date!

I really like how to tied shirt looks--I saw a girl wearing a shirt tied like that over a dress and I really likes the look--maybe I'll try that this weekend!!
