maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you

maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you

Sometimes camera malfunctions make for interesting effects. Some greasy substance was smeared across the lens and B didn't discover the issue until after we had taken a couple pictures. I kind of like the way this one turned out.

I wore this for my buddy A's birthday dinner at Masa 14 this weekend.  I usually have a hard time liking establishments with numbers in their names, but the food was actually kind of interesting and tasty.  The snow is getting dirty and gross and I've decided I've had my fill for at least a few years.  Be gone now.

Forever 21 lace top
Topshop blazer
Express skirt
Balenciaga boots

Love the different textures! & I am sick of snow too! So pretty when it comes down making everything pure & white & then it turns on you blanketing everything with black icy sludge!

I was over the snow a few weeks ago. And it just keeps coming.

That skirt is gorgeous. I love the way it sparkles. And I like the blurred effect on the first picture too!

Masa 14 is really decent. I've been several times and it never really disappoints.

I hate snow on the weekends, but during the week I'm all for it because it gets me out of class :)
