the peplum trend…

{h&m peplum shirt, ny&co skirt, j.c. penny heels, ny&co watch}

…i finished my last semester of college this week which means i’m a free woman (eh at least for the next three months). i’m going on vacation to florida with my family in a week and that is all i can think about for the moment. every thought ends with me calculating the days until i’ll be sitting on the beach ๐Ÿ˜‰ until then i’ll be sorting out clothes that i can wear in the warmer weather!

casual tees…

{h&m blazer, old navy shirt, ny&co skirt, target leggings, t.j. max boots, michael kors watch}

…i’ve been looking for a good graphic tee practically every time i go shopping. i was having a hard time finding one that wasn’t covered in peace signs or “jersey shore” quotes so i finally came to the conclusion that unless you are shopping at a high end store, most of the ones in typical stores will be so-so. i was about to give up when i remembered that i had one more option: mens tees. since guys shirts are usually more laid back, its a fun way to wear a casual outfit. (mine is from the kids section shhh!!)…

back to denim…

…you know that one pair of shoes that you continue to wear almost daily even though you haveย tons of other shoes…that’s me and these zara heels. i’m sorry i’m posting them again so soon, i may have a slight obsession ๐Ÿ˜‰ …my dad has been wearing denim shirts forever so when he found out i bought one he was beaming with pride (quite literally). every time he sees me wear the shirt he gives me a thumbs up followed up by theย that’s-my-girl look. he’s a simple guy, his wardrobe consists of denim, camouflage, plaid and the occasional bright orange reflective shirts. he’s happy to see his little girl finally catching on….

retro dots….

…i want to thank all of my new followers and fellow bloggers for all the comments and likes i received in the past few days, i appreciate them so much! i will try my best to respond to them all as soon as i can ๐Ÿ™‚ …there are not many trendy little shops where i live so when i saw this new store at the mall i quite literally smiled ear-to-ear as i scanned the racks. my first purchase from the store was this retro dress, which i love….

spring green…

{express shirt, ny&co skirt and watch, zara heels}

…i hope everyone had an awesome easter! it’s been another fun-filled-school-work-sick-crazy week. it felt so good to have nothing to do except go to church (which i adore) and show up to dinner on time (im ignoring the homework waiting for me for the moment). as for my outfit, i am in love with this shade of green and the flow-y light material was a nice change from all the layers i’ve been piling on to keep warm…

red specs…

{h&m shirt, ny&co cardigan, express belt, express skirt, zara shoes, anthropologie glasses}

…saying its been awhile since i posted is an understatement, i’m so sorry for my extended absence. after much prying and complaining from ..cough..meghan…cough…i’m back on! please be patient with me (i’m still trying to figure out how to get pictures of my outfits everyday now that my beloved photographer/sister is back at work ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )…

gone with the wind…

{thrifted tank top, express cardigan, nine west booties, thrifted skirt}

…i kid you not, i stepped outside my car and almost fell due to the ferocious wind knocking me over. after a sunny turned rain/snow/wind week, taking pictures outside was near impossible. that being said i’ve been living in tights and these booties all week…

feels like spring…

{target shirt, h&m skirt, michael kors belt and shoes}

…the weather was beautiful yesterday, i was able to wear my favorite spring skirt while visiting some friends and catching up from vacation. i have to brag for a minute, i have the best set of friends a girl could ask for one of them being my lovely friend who recently had a baby. we had a beautiful afternoon taking full advantage of the weather by taking a walk through the neighborhood with her handsome baby boy…
