summer job and an outfit


Blouse, Shorts, Shoes & Hat: Saver's
Belt: Goodwill
Necklace: Antique Mall

These are the photos that Hannah took of me the same day as the Ritz shoot. It's been so long now that I can hardly remember what we talked about while we were out. I do remember her coming to eat lunch at my work earlier that day and hanging around to chat with me until I was able to leave.

I don't think I've mentioned my new job on here yet, but I should because I'm there a lot. It's just a summer job for now, at a restaurant called The House, just a little ways from my house, in Hillcrest. My friend Pete needed some extra hands during the day, and I needed extra money and a distraction from the internet––I'm usually on it too much during the summer. It's nice because I go in at ten and get off in time to take afternoon outfit pictures––which may explain why my hair looks frazzled in all my summer photos. Besides the hair complaints, the job is super laid back and easy. I get to listen to my own music and wear my own clothes, which is a first for me at a restaurant job. It's definitely a positive atmosphere, and the extra cash is always a plus.

That ought to explain my inconsistencies in posting this week. a) I'm still trying to find the ground after last weeks prodigious getaway; b) I don't have a lot of extra time to write posts, especially when I have other errands to run; c) Jake needed me to tend to a few favors/errands this week too. Hopefully things will be back to normal next week.
Photos by Hannah!
