Vacay before the Fall

9/26/2010

My mini vacation was spent in Gainesville, which is where I went to college. I was there for about a week and had some time to just relax, hang out with my Gville friends and do a bit of shopping--just a bit.

I bought this great wool fedora at a little boutique store called Henri Girl on sale for $5!

Remember I mentioned how much I wanted these shoes in my Shoe Envy post?

Now I have some rockin' pumps; Christian Siriano patent leather platform pumps in black python--from Payless!

When not shopping, I was eating, lol. I went to this great place called Bento. It's pretty much a staple in Gville. I got sushi and bulgogi.

As some of you might know I am a journalist. This is a story I wrote about Bento, which is featured in the restaurant in this beautiful frame.

I went downtown in this F21 dress and I got complimented a few times. It's lace on the outside.

I'll have to make an official OOTD with it because these photos were taken with my camera phone, which is not nearly as good as my Canon.

Tailgating before the game. Some people set up from 7am and the game didn't start until 7pm. That's dedication!

Everyone seems to be focused on the camera except for me.

Tailgating with Anna; she's made a few guest appearances on this site.

Everyone trying to teach everyone else "how to dougie" at the tailgate party

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium--Home of the Gators.

Ari and I at the Gator game sitting in the endzone

The Gators against Kentucky; final score: 48-14 Gators!



Thanks to all the super awesome comments on my last post. I'll be checking your blogs today. Did you all see Glee? It was a great season opener!

Now I'm back and it's officially fall. I can't wait! Are you excited?
