I'm a LIME-a-Bean!

Quick Weekend Update, since there isn't too much to update on - went to one of my favorite (and beloved) restaurants for a good friend's bday...BENIHANA! Mmm...still thinking about it now...huh? Where was I?

Since I wore a dress I've already featured here, I thought it'd be cool to showcase Rye Bread's outfit, since he's much more fashionable than I am:
theory white button-down, club monoco sweater, marc jacobs tie, jeans from kitson, jack purcell chucks
Right? Totally handsome and dapper, casual and cool, effortlessly proper without looking like a schoolboy or hipster. Me likey. Haha.
not quite sure why i look like i seared my face across the grill

Sunday was a day full of babysitting Lydia (seen above), where we went to the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica:

urban outfitters tank, american eagle shorts (not seen), oliver peoples sunglasses //
rye bread: ohio state buckeyes tshirt, jordan basketball shorts
Back to this manic Monday, it's officially summer...so whip out the summer colors, including this highlighter, bright-ass, neon green tank!
white tank: hollister, green tank: style xpress, hollister jeans
I wanted to pair this up with a black jersey skirt, but I was WAY lazy and didn't feel like shaving my legs. So jeans it is!

And why not have a little fun with lime green?
Using the brightest green shadow possible, I liberally applied it to the center of my eyes, and balanced it with a gold shadow in the inner corners and a dark (matte!) brown on the outer corners. Using my go-to taupe (Mac's Era), I blended the gold and brown above the green for a complete look. Line & mascara, as usual.

P.S. You may have noticed the 3-picture frame in the hallway - a great idea my roommate and I had was to put a baby picture of each of us, to personalize our apartment (since we don't have any pictures of the 3 of us).

Happy Monday!
