Print Play

Beyonce- Run The World (Girls)

Why this song? Plain and simple: we thought a fierce, powerful song seemed appropriate for an all print 'fit. Can't be timid when you are wearing:

I'm not sure why, but I feel like I should be reporting the news in the above picture....


And I'm out.
Have a great weekend all!

Part Two

Here's a few quick pics of the other half o' the post-work par-tay on the balcony (which obviously took place before this frigid weather). Yes, for those of you doing the math, that means there were two of us in attendance.

N.E.R.D. "Things Are Getting Better"
Why? "Cuz I'm the Sh*!" (listen to the song, you'll get it) More accurately, it was playing on my SoulCycle Spotify playlist as I uploaded the pictures...

Feel like a Kardashian in this outfit.

Oh wow, that hair appointment can not come soon enough.

Really though, where is my drink?!
