Plaid and Lace Shorts

June 24, 2014

 Hello there, I'm excited to share an outfit with you all! I've picked up quite a few things at Forever 21 recently, including this pair of red and navy plaid shorts. I was getting a little stressed thinking about how I was going to survive the summer heat in the clothing department. How I have survived the previous summers is the real question, but anyway...I made it a mission to stock up on my breezy loose-fitting shorts. Styling them has been bit of a challenge considering I'm used to jean shorts, but I have a feeling they are going to dominate my wardrobe! I love this pair in particular because it's a break from the usual geometric and floral prints I see everywhere (don't get me wrong, I actually bought another pair of shorts today in floral print :X). They also give off a subtle pajama short vibe, but in a classy way with the lace fringe detail. I'm a fan of lazy-chic!

A Small Comeback & 35mm Film

June 22, 2014


Hey all, I realize I've been a terrible blogger...some things have stunted my motivation and inspiration the past few weeks, illuminating the lack-of content on this blog. I apologize, and hope to post more outfits soon! I actually have some cool travel plans for July so I'm getting pretty pumped for that... Anyway, I got some 35mm film developed and wanted to share a few. Here is me in my palm tree print cropped tee and new high waisted black shorts I anticipate to wear all summer. Lastly, I now have Instagram, please feel free to follow me here!

When the rain washes you clean you'll know

June 2, 2014

Whoa it's Monday already...more like it's June already omg! I went home for the weekend to visit my family and friends...and to soak up nature. My friend Beth said I'm so Stevie Nicks in this hat and I was like yes! Channeling my inner 60s child.


Honestly...I just bought this top and pants on Saturday and wore it right after I bought it...no shame! I forgot to pack comfy shorts or pants and there was no way I was hiking in a short skirt or tight shorts sooo thankfully I found these amazing daisy print pants. I've been trying to find a good pair of chic-casual-lazy pants but all the prints I see aren't really me. These though, are totally me! Unfortunately they only had a large and extra large left in these so I caved and got the large...convincing myself that the draw string would cinch them in.

I'm excited for this month...summer, summer, summer! And now I will leave you with my favorite Fleetwood Mac song.
