dress - Modcloth
necklace - c/o Rings&Tings
camera bag - Jo Totes

This is the third time this dress has been featured on the blog. It's actually kind of strange how long this dress has managed to stay in my collection of dresses considering it isn't black and white striped. Something about it though, I just can't part with it. Seems I can't part with that one leg bent behind the other pose either. Haha!

I can't believe it's almost August already! It's also officially my birthday week! This year is flying by so quickly, isn't it? The weather seems like it might be cooling down a little bit, or maybe we're just having a good week. I missed wearing sweaters. Not that this one is heavy or anything, but it does feel nice. I'm dreading winter and being stuck inside (and not riding my bike!!) but if it could stay like this forever, I'd be okay with that.

My birthday is coming up at the end of this week, on Saturday, and you know what I just realized? I didn't buy a birthday outfit. It's kind of a silly little tradition that I buy myself a new dress or item of clothing every year to wear on my birthday just to feel special. This year it totally slipped my mind. Perhaps because my birthday plans are to ride my bike and I don't ride in dresses? Who knows! I'm kind of kicking myself for not buying something though. I mean, there's a possibility that if I ordered something it would get here in time, and I could always venture into the mall and look for something. Eeek! For now I'm just browsing Modcloth's sale section. They're having a huge sale and there are soooo many good things marked way way down. Regardless if it would have gotten here in time or not I would have snagged this one if it were still available in a medium! 

Guess I should head to the mall and at least pick myself up a new striped shirt. Hah!

Not too long ago Jeff and I found ourselves inside a new building. Not a new building new building. Quite the opposite actually, this one had been abandoned and even caught on fire at one point. This is just one of the very few we've gotten to explore for the first time together. The building was fairly small, at least compared to a lot of the other places I've been in. Inside there were three floors. The first was dark, damp, and full of miscellaneous furniture. The second floor was full of chairs, and the third just had desks. The first floor seemed to be the one most affected by the fire. Charred desks were scattered about. The second and third floor had their own problems, namely reeeally really sketchy floors. I'm honestly surprised one us didn't have at least a foot go through.
Like I mentioned above, the first floor was dark, and damp which is the absolute perfect condition for mushrooms to grow. I've spotted mushrooms in abandoned buildings before. It's always exciting but there were SO many here. In the past I probably would have admired them briefly before deciding it was way too dark to shoot and moved on. Buuut I am learning my camera, and I have someone who is always encouraging me to push myself. With the flashlight from my phone and the perfect camera settings I was able to shoot these photos. I'm obsessed with them. I couldn't wipe the stupid grin off my face after I saw what I captured. I love that the mushrooms look like they're about to be abducted by aliens!
