in a mile you'll be feeling fine

This week was rather crazy and I feel like it was that way for everyone.  I've been working the past few days as a fill-in receptionist and this position always gives me ample time to pore through the Time magazine website.  I feel so up-to-date on what's going on in the country and world and that's always such a nice and responsible feeling.

In that respect though, yesterday was spent in sort of a haze of media inundation about the earthquake in Japan.  My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected.  Events like this are always too surreal to completely grasp at first, so it was actually really nice to be in an office and able to talk to people about it.  I even spoke to one man in the office who had been on an island that people evacuated to during the 2004 tsunami.  I can't even comprehend what that must have been like and it definitely put the 'tsunami warning' LA was experiencing into perspective*.

Not to entirely switch gears, but I couldn't even imagine writing a post without addressing those thoughts first!  Anyway, because of work, my posts are going to be a little staggered for awhile.  This was from a couple days (or maybe even a week) ago.  The sunlight is definitely changing and going onto the roof at my normal times I've been met with a formidable amount of light.  So I have some outfits that I'm not even sure I want to post because the pictures seem so unappealing to me.

However, I had to post this one because I get to show you one of my favorite Christmas presents: the burgundy floppy hat my brother got me.  It's basically everything I could ever want from a floppy 70s hat.  My brother is certainly a great example of how a male should shop if he's clueless when it comes to gifts.  Wish list purchases.  Always a win.  I'm just saying...

Oh and also, I'm really excited that, after I conclude my next two weeks of working, guess where we're going!  Did you guess Joshua Tree?  You're right!

Yep, it's my birthday soon and I usually pretend it's not happening, but this year I wanted to try out embracing it.  Also I heart the desert and super need to get out of the city, if just for a weekend.  So bear with my posting the next couple weeks and you'll be rewarded with Joshua Tree awesomeness.

button-up shirt: Gap, floral skirt: Forever 21, floppy hat: Luxury Divas, boots: Modcloth On Repeat Boot, necklace: thrifted

*Not that I feel the warning was unnecessary.  I just feel like it would have been better to put it out there, but not sensationalize it when there's a more important crisis going on...  ya know?
