The 5th of May

Linking up with Alison @ Long Distance Loving again for

as well as Kori @ Blonde Episodes for 

When you live in a college town, you learn which days will be good for going out and which won't. I have a feeling every good Tex-Mex restaurant will be packed to the brim tomorrow night. 
{weekend before finals + Friday night + Cinco de Mayo = crazy drunk college students}
So while it will be tempting to fight the masses, I think I'll have chips and salsa in the quiet of my little apartment. But if you're going out to grab enchiladas or having your own little fiesta (or if you just feel like dressing up), here's some outfit inspiration.
cinco de mayo!
So, any exciting plans for the weekend? Mine involves some studying, a take-home final, work, hanging out at the pool, job searching, and packing to go home for a couple of weeks. 
Have a fantastic Friday!
