Tues July 22nd - Grandmother meets Farmer Joe

The weather's been cool lately, and I'm surprised it's already been a month since my birthday! Time flies, although unexpectedly since I haven't done as much as I would've hoped for during my short time in Orange County.

Later on there's a barbecue with a group of friends from high school. I'm a little excited since I haven't seen them in so long, I wonder if they've changed much since college started for everyone. Things like that worry me at times, if people changed so drastically that they aren't exactly the same person anymore....but despite that I'll be thrilled to run into them all again.

Decided to dress a little up and down for tonight's gathering. It's comfortable, a little kooky, and I've been really enjoying this light color palette, if you didn't notice from my previous entry. Also was able to play with my tripod a bit today, although in a slightly uncreative manner.

Did I mention I'm heading to Manhattan towards the end of summer? I went last year, but this year it perfectly encompasses New York Fashion week, so I'm considering taking some candids here and there. If anyone is a New York native, any suggestions on interesting places to hang out during night/day time? I've already been suggested The Cake Shop, Prince St., and of course Soho is a place I plan to visit again. I'm particularly looking for music venues, or cafes, or any general hangout spot.

@emma - Thanks for the suggestion! I've been killing hours and hours of my life just looking for misc. things to do and shop at in Manhattan. Will be sure to check out Beacon's Closet!

@styledigger - Thank youuu. I seemed to have lost or misplaced those glasses, which makes it the second pair I've lost this year.

@Miriam - I'm surprised! They don't have one in sweden?

@Diana - Is it still available? I know that when I got it, it was on the Clearance racks so I'm not sure if it'd still be there.
