Jackie is my good friend, and also a huge style inspiration. Every time we hang out, I try to pick her brain on how she chooses a belt, or where she got her blazer, or what she looks for in a button-down or a scarf. She just knows.

Several weeks ago, Jackie casually mentioned she was considering donning a jumpsuit for her work's holiday party. My jaw dropped. How cool is she? Obviously, not 2 minutes later, I was trolling Rent the Runway for my own jumpsuit. That's when I spotted this beaut.

Jackie ended up forgoing the jumpsuit she rented in favor of a trusty dress standby. (And that's the beauty of Jackie. She knows when it's right.) I went back and forth, and was ultimately convinced to go for it by the dude in the photo. ("You know you want to." Much wise.)

Not sure how much the jumpsuit had to do with it, but I had an awesome time.

Little Things

My commute home typically starts with a mad dash to catch the train. But a few days ago I actually had time to put on my headphones, and enjoy a leisurely walk to the station. The coolest thing happened...

On Code Review (again)

Hahahahah. This just happened. (reference)

Scuba Weekend

Work has had me in the zone this week. The whole team has been super focused and just crushing it. Felt pretty good, but I'm ready to take a little break.

I'm getting scuba certified this weekend! I've been talking about getting it done since 2007 (after my friend, Monique, did it, and then taught me how to tread water). Now I'm signed up for a class and it's actually happening. Here's hoping I can swim 200 yards without getting hydrogen psychosis. Errr. Help!

Hope you have a fun weekend.

2 inches

Even though I've always wanted to be taller, I rarely wear heeled shoes. But I dusted off these boots the other day, and it just felt so right. I became the perfect height. (Even rode my bike to the grocery store in these.)

Just out of curiosity, I checked the heel height. A measly two inches. Two inches! Really, life? Was two extra inches too much to ask for? What a joke.

Thelma & Louise

This rainy weather has had me in a movie watching mood lately. And since I'm still pining for the elusive best friend, I've been trolling silly "best friendship movies" lists. That's where I spotted this gem: Thelma and Louise. Have you seen it?

Honestly, I'd watch it just for the fashion inspiration. Dat denim + muscle tank combo looks legit.
