Fashion // To Love and Win

Red and lace are my two favorite things. I love this dreamy, romantic outfit, complete with my favorite Paris purse and my new wear-with-everything booties. You’ll be seeing a lot of them on this site in the future! IMG_7553 IMG_7568 IMG_7539IMG_7577 IMG_7541IMG_7597

Fashion // Setting Sail & Yoyomelody Dress!

I just got this dress from a new sponsor and I instantly fell in love with it when I opened the package. The fabric is really good quality, and the little anchors are stitched rather than printed on it, which I love. It fits me perfectly, and I can tell this dress will become one of my favorite, go-to dresses for both cool and hot weather. I definitely recommend Yoyomelody’s dresses and tops. I also received a casual tee with a cat face on it that I can’t wait to wear!

I wanted to wear this dress when I was in Portland, but it didn’t come in time. Oh, well! I wore the dress with my favorite new shoes from Nasty Gal, which I got for 50% off 🙂

Fashion // When you and I were forever wild

I wore this outfit out to dinner with my family last week, and also to my best friend’s grad party. You may recognize my boots from this post! I love bright colors, and this pure white dress gives me the freedom to accessorize to my heart’s content. It’s a blank canvas. I also love these boots so much!

Fashion // Love Can't Wear Out

Happy July! Here’s a bit of a romantic outfit…The quote is from Gone With the Wind, which I’ve finished tonight to a chorus of sobbing. Stay tuned for more on that tomorrow.

Road Trip Style

After much deliberation, I am happy to announce that my friends and I will be going to Portland, Maine in July. This was a far cry from my initial thought of going South, but after researching Maine, I’m so excited for lobster rolls, pre-Civil War museums, lighthouses, and lots of beach. I’m lucky to be going on vacation with friends with diverse tastes because if it were up to me, I’d just eat lobster, read books, and prowl museums all day, but we’re planning hikes, tours, kayaking, arcades, long days at the beach, and many, many lobster rolls. I can’t wait!

Here are some items on my road trip shopping list:

I’ve been coveting these Shoe Cult booties for a while now, and lucky for me, they’re on sale! It was fate. I am gravitating toward light colors and floaty dresses and tops, florals and stripes and nautical-themed wear! I also still want to find a good high-waisted bikini. Anyone have any suggestions? I think Modcloth is a good place to start, but they always seem to be just out of my price range, sigh.
