Dear Fashion Diary,

Diary, have you missed me?! I'm finally back from my hiatus!
Thanks to husband being so tech savvy,
he hooked up our internet!!
Oh what a relief.

On another note, how fabulous are these patterns together?! 
I love the military look with the bold polka dots and the bright
red skirt I found at D.I.
One of my favorite thrifted purchases Ever.

So the next few fashion posts will be old ones from before we moved,
that's how behind I am on everything! 
What did Anyone do before internet?!

I cannot wait to get this apartment cleaned and unpacked so I can 
go to town taking photos for you all to see!
{disclaimer: it may be a while...we have a lot of junk}

oh and psst...if you guys like anything you see on here, 
don't hesitate to pin it on your Pinterest boards!
Personally I love having the "Pin It" icon up on my bookmarks toolbar
so that I can pin anything I like wherever I am online!
If  you want to see my Pinterest boards,
