i'm one step closer to bein' just where i want to be

We took our mom to the Thousand Oaks mall over the weekend.
It's like all malls, really, but it has a really pretty outdoor area, which is where we took these pictures.
{super nerve racking!}

In case you were wondering, that is a Ninja Turtle on my band-aid...
Say hi to Raphael!
{though don't tell Michelangelo- he's my favorite}
{ ;) }


I told arnab that I'd put this picture up because of how ridiculous he looks. 
Clearly he's already started to stand up, but his legs are still crossed.
How confusing and awkward all at once!

p.s., totally instagrammed the steps, they're so pretty!

we are entirely smooth

A new addition to my animal print collection!
Also couldn't resist pairing it with a leopard skirt.
I love my big cats!

p.s. bought some vintage goodies while at Melrose.
It felt so good since I haven't bought any vintage pieces in a while!

Remember how I detest taking pictures?
Well, though these were taken on a smaller street perpendicular to Melrose, it was still a pretty darn busy street. 
 arnab, who could care less- or at least acts it, thankfully got the brunt of activity going past us as we took the pictures.
Including a thumbs up from a guy driving by.
 {we pass it all the time so arnab's wondering 'where does this door lead?!'}

good guys don't wear white

Did you realize arnab and I dont wear white much?
Here and there we might have on something that's white, but paired with another color.
And sometimes arnab wear's plain white t-shirts.
But really, for some reason we just don't wear white much. 
{well my reason is that I have this horrible feeling that I'll stain it instantly...}


In case you were wondering, we wore this to bowling last Wednesday night: 

arnab is wearing Topman tank, Buffalo Exchange ship necklace, H&M belt, Levi's shorts, and Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes;

anisa is wearing a vintage dress, vintage Coach bag, and Prabal Gurung for Target sandals;
BB Dakota suede jacket, Operation Ivy shirt, and Current/Elliott jeans

well i have been searching... all of my days

What's better then a Saturday night with friends?
Our friends are the best.
{no, really!}
We had a fun dinner together and then went to watch Oz the Great and Powerful, which I though was silly and I wasn't very impressed with it.
I thought maybe I was the only one but my whole group thought the same and we had a good laugh at the end of the night.
Great friends are the best things to have.

I see this picture and I think of George Michael (Bluth) from Arrested Development (love that show so much!!) imitating one of the Peanuts characters, not sure which one.

arnab's shirt, in case you were wondering, was not cut on the sides when he bouhgt it.
In fact it had long sleeves!
He cut the sides off and it makes for a great summer shirt.
Plus it shows off his side tattoo.

everybody warms themselves to a different fire...

Daylight savings happened this past Sunday.
I couldnt be happier.
I absolutely detest when it gets dark at like 5.
Clearly the sun had set when we took these pictures, though it was only almost 6.
Now though, thankfully when I leave work at 6, it's still nice and sunny!

We wore these outfits to a family party.
Obviously, arnab and I take every chance to dress up.
I'm loving {and using as much as possible} my vintage collar and this MAC lipstick!
And arnab's loving {and using as much as possible} his bow-ties and that Zara coat!

{I'm happy to report that I wore these shoes for 4+ hours, made sure I walked around in them, and they didn't make my feet hurt much at all. yay!}


{arnab actually deemed it okay to wear a pre-tied bow tie!}
