This has absolutely been one of the craziest weeks of my life. As some of you might know, last Monday I was hit by a car near my home in Nashville. I was walking to my favorite coffee shop after my video shoot at the Cosmetic Market and I was hit by a truck in a crosswalk. I was taken to the hospital by an ambulance and spent 8 hours in the Vanderbilt hospital while the doctors checked for broken bones and internal bleeding. I was very fortunate to not be injured - other than some gnarly bruises!
Here is the Haul and Update Video
So I was in bed for a few days at home and had some complications, which were awful! I lost 7 pounds in 2 days because I couldn't keep any food or liquids down. I recovered pretty fast once I got off my pain medication, just in time for my best friend, Amy, to get in town from Omaha! She is such a great friend and I was happy to have her around for a few days. On Friday, we started our day at Sweet Cece's where our other best friend Michelle works to get some sweet frozen yogurt! Isn't Amy so cute?!
Then we headed out for some SHOPPING! I wanted to get some new digs for my upcoming trip to Austin, Texas. Here was my OOTD for shopping with Amy.
So here is my general rule of thumb for shopping. I grab everything that looks remotely cute and take it into the fitting room. I love how they write your name on a little mirror outside your fitting room with the number of pieces you have (no limit!). Then I try everything on (I am a BEAST at trying on clothes quickly; I am a theatre and dance kid at heart). Then I snap photos with my iPhone of every outfit. This works great because I can later look objectively at the outfits and decide which ones I really want after I am out of the fitting room. Pictures never lie! Here's what I got:
This top was my favorite thing I purchased on my little shopping spree. It was from the F21 designer collection with designer Rory Becca. It is an cream tank (double lined for bonus points!) with blue and pink feathers. It was only $15.80! This one is great because it pairs with skinny jeans, a black skirt or shorts. Plus I love the floaty shape and the x in the back. I also got a pink double shark tooth necklace for $3.80 (above).
Later that night was the engagement party for my roommates, June and Gabe. We had such a blast celebrating at my house with all our friends. Here's a little snapshot of me with my besties, Amy and Michelle.
The next day, Amy left and Michelle and I geared up for our 12 hour drive to Austin. We bought some snacks and packed up the car and left the next morning bright and early at 7:30, taking shifts driving my red Honda Fit! Here's Michelle rocking her Ray bans on the Voyage!
Here's me smiling as we rolled through Texarkana in the lovely sunshine! It really was a good trip! It went by so quickly.
