Floral Bomber

{Photos by Zach; wearing House of Harlow sunglasses, Converse sneakers, Zara bomber}

Excuse my absence this week. I have a bunch of things to take care of! Do you ever feel that when you have to spend money to pay for things everything has to be paid at once?

My router broke at home amongst some other things, I got car insurance due next month, flight ticket to book, this week I'm closing on my investment property so there's lawyer fees, house insurance and other fees with it. Seriously, lawyers are the worst. I saw/talked my lawyer for the total of 20 minutes during the entire purchase and he bills me $1400. That's more expensive than doing cocaine. Doing cocaine would probably be more fun in this case too.


  1. Gorge! Love your bomber!


  2. Good luck on the closing! I hope the attorney did his job and everything is in order. You're right, lawyers are the worst. I consulted with an attorney about my dad's estate a few years ago. I wanted to be sure I was doing everything legally. But I had to cut him loose after going through the same scenario a few times: he would tell me the law said X, I would tell him I thought it was Y. Then he would VERY slowly walk into the next room to get a giant law book, shuffle through the pages for several minutes, and then tell me I was right. And I was paying him for that??? He was my BIL's cousin, but I fired him anyway. That sister never liked me, so I didn't have to worry about upsetting them. lol

    You're holding up well through all the aggravation--you look amazing. Seriously, wonderfully amazing.

  3. Pretty jacket. I like the asymmetrical skirt too!

    Our attorney ended up making an error on the closing papers and calling us back months later. He did not bill us. Didn't affect anything as far as I can tell, luckily. Congrats on the investment property.

  4. Haha, please don't do coke. I don't think your post would be as great then. Best of luck and well wishes for all that is going on in your life right now! I'm feeling a bit of that strain to, trying to get everything accomplished while I have a chance this summer.
    Love the bomber. Very fresh.

  5. I love the bomber... it looks great on you and I also reiterate... don't do coke.. lol.. $1400.00 for 20 minutes... I better learn how to fill out my own divorce papers. :)

  6. OMG, that bomber is THE BOMB. I love how the floral print is so fine and not gaudy and grandma like! And I'm sorry that the cost have been so immediate and you had to fork out everything right away. I'm sure the payments went to good purposes though!

  7. Damn $1400? At that point any kind of drug would probably be better than spending that much at the lawyer's.

  8. $1400 for 20 minutes??? The hell!??? Sheesh, lawyers are thieves...
    Hope you get everything sorted out. I hate when everything seems to be due at once.
    Anyway, loving that floral bomber and the cool skirt!

  9. oh wow!!!! sooooo adorable sport-chic outfit))))) xoxo

  10. Hope you get everything sorted out,
    anyway i love your jacket and skirt so much!



  11. Love your skirt! Ahh, I know what you mean. The hard drive on my computer broke, so I bought a tablet to replace it which broke a week later, so I got my hard drive fixed and returned the tablet. The hard drive was defective, so I had to get it fixed again. Ugh, so much cash flowing out.

  12. You always have the most unique clothing. I've never quite seen a floral bomber jacket in such bold colours and that skirt! So unique. I want to steal it from you. Oh my, I should have studied harder to become a lawyer. It is definitely well worth the time spent studying over the years to be able to earn $1400 in 20 minutes.

    Ah, beitou is your favourite place? When we went there, we didn’t check beforehand that the Thermal Valley and library would be closed. Hence I do not know if I've experienced the full beitou experience. Wonder what you did there! It was good you didn’t go to the toilet restaurant! It’s a nausea-inducing novelty.
