It's Been Awhile

Alright, well a lot has happened in the past few days which is the reason why I have not posted.
On Friday I went to my good friend's house and then slept over. It was too fun to even explain. That night we went shopping at Anthropologie which was good because they had a lot of stuff on sale.
I got this vest there but I am almost positive I am returning it because I feel like $40 was too much to spend on it. What do you guys think?

Saturday morning was even more exciting, though. We decided it would be fun to check out the thrift store around the corner from her house. I got a three belts and a blazer. Today I decided to put together an outfit for each of the things that I purchased, which proved to be a good way to spend my time.
Blazer: thrifted, Shirt: unknown, Jeans: American EagleI would consider this blazer a pretty amazing find. It is Ralph Lauren and still has the tags on it. I bought it for $15 when it was originally $250. It will be great to throw on in the fall and spring for school when I don't feel like putting together an outfit because it is super comfy.

These belts were each $1. I was so excited to find some cute, cheap belts since I have been obsessed with them lately.

Dress: Abercrombie, Shirt: Brother's, Belt: thrifted
I decided to start with the blue one since it is my favorite. The color is amazing and I really like it against the gold. It will definitely be great to add to otherwise boring outfits.

Shirt: unknown, Belt: thrifted, Skirt: Ralp Lauren dress from when I was little
I like this belt a lot too. I am not sure that its going to be that easy to pair with things though because of the color, which I think is definitely a little bit off.

Blazer: little brother's, Shirt: Ann Taylor, Belt: thrifted
This belt will be great to pair with a lot of things. I have been wanting a braided belt for a while so it was great to get one for only a dollar.

When we returned from the thrift store we came home to just about the coolest thing I have ever seen. My friend's house is probably my favorite house ever; it is really old and just about everything about it is absolutely gorgeous. Anyways, in her kitchen their was a closet that the previous owners had put in but my friend's mom thought their may be a hidden servant's staircase behind the closet wall that they had covered up and there was! When the wall was demolished there were stairs leading up to a closet upstairs that the other owners had put in as well. Then, when we pulled up the floor and we had practically a whole staircase in front of our eyes, they only have to add a few at the bottom. Well, every kid always dreams of finding a secret passageway in their house. The only thing is I am too old to pass for a kid at this point and it wasn't actually in my house, hahahaa. This may sound really stupid to you but I really did think that it was awesome.
I managed to take a couple of pictures on my cell phone:

From the bottom..

From the top.. isn't the ledge cute?

A couple hours after I got home from my friend's my two cousins arrived for the visit at my house. We did so much in only two days that it probably seems really overwhelming; but it
wasn't it was just super, super fun.
On Saturday night we went back to Anthropologie, this time I didn't get anything though. My cousin got a really cute dress that I wish I could have gotten too but instead we decided to do a clothing swap so I will probably get a chance to wear it anyways. After we went there we went to Marshall's, I only got a pair of leggings but this hat looks kind of cute so it may have been a good idea to check the price. We went to go hibachi after that which was amaazinnggg as usual.
Fooling around.. and yes, I do need glasses.

On Sunday we went to the beach and I finally got a good start on my summer tan. After the beach we went to my uncle's house for a bbq. We went in his pool for awhile and then he took us on the boat to go tubing! When we got home we watched the moving Knowing with Nicholas Cage about the numbers that predict all the world disasters. It was reaallyy good up until the end when they pretty much ruined the movie. How disappointing..
Amazingly funnn..

On Monday we went to go get bagels wearing this:
We got some stares and one guy said "You guys are looking very theatrical today.. what is the occasion?" Hahhahahaa

Then, we went to pretty much the biggest mall I have ever been too so we could meet my aunt because my cousins were already going home. Atleast we got a lot done. I bought a pair of high-waisted blue shorts from Urban Outfitters for $20 that I couldn't get a picture of yet because they were in the wash. Finally I found the perfect other option of shorts rather than cutoffs. I will probably be wearing them in the next few days so I will post them soon.
Yesterday we went into the city to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in Imax. It was sooo amazing, even though I am a few chapters from finishing the book. As you can probably tell, I didn't have much time for reading this weekend.
Well, thanks for reading if you actually did.
