Just a simple post today featuring one of my favorite pairs of shorts. Got these as a birthday gift for myself last year (remember this?) Still tried and true. You can't go wrong with a pair of Levi's.

Finally hopped on the envelope clutch bandwagon and got this beautiful Kelly green one from Oasap. The leather is buttery soft, and the design is simple and clean. My only problem with clutches is that it doesn't free up your hands like cross-body bags do for going out. I have this irrational fear that I'll put the clutch down somewhere and forget it there.

Also recently got this arrow bracelet from Forever21, and I'm so in love. I have a pretty tiny wrist, so bangles usually fall off easily, but this one was perfectly adjustable. I highly recommend. Not to mention, it looks similar to the expensive ones sold at Gorjana.

{White dress - ASOS; Chiffon skirt - F21}

One trick I like to do with my night time dresses is wear them with a skirt for a more day time look. Body con dresses work perfectly under a flouncier skirt. If you don't have time to go home and change before hitting the clubs/bars, you can just take the skirt off and stuff it in your bag.

Lately, I've been getting into the habit of wearing bodycon skirts with loose blouses to go out in at night. Not much to showcase up top, so you gotta work with what you got, amiright?

I threw this silk shirt in the wash by accident thinking "this has got to be some polyester blend. I got it from Urban Outfitters for $6!" but alas. The pocket got all stretched out as you can see, but I think it's still wearable. #noshame. Word to the wise, mind your labels!

Hope all my American readers had a fantastic Fourth of July yesterday! I know I really enjoyed grilling, crackin open a nice cold one, and watching the fireworks.

Every year, the town sets off fireworks at a baseball field right next to my house, so people park all along my street starting very early. I told my little brother to put up a sign in our driveway saying, "PARKING: $10! Only 1 space left! Inquire within." Gotta stir up that entrepreneurial spirit while they're young, you know?

Just a simple outfit for today. Also wanted to show off my new "Dear New York" Zara sandals that arrived! Confession time: they are from the kids section. A size 6 woman's is the same as a size 3.5 kids. There, I let my big shopping secret out. Kids shoes are cheaper and often more comfortable.

{Dress - American Eagle; Fedora - F21; Bag - River Island; Boots - Tommy Hilfiger}

Whenever I try to wear hats in public, I just end up holding it in my hand all day. Any little thing will knock that hat off my head. Bumping into something, gust of wind, someone's exasperated sigh... Chalk it up to my abnormally large head. So jealous of all those stylish girls rocking their fedoras. I wonder what their secret is... Super glue?

randomnum The winner of my giveaway is post #1, Molly! Early bird gets the worm.

So lately, I've been trying to sell/donate most of my old clothes to prepare for my move. They've barely left the hangers, and I already feel justified to indulge in some more retail therapy to fill my void. Here's the first item to arrive: Motel Zoe dress in Poppy Field Print. On sale now for $19!

To be honest, these sunglasses look way cooler hanging from my sweater than sitting on my face. I'm trying to figure out at which point the purpose of sunglasses changed from eye protection to just plain accessorizing.

{Wanda Mirror Print dress - Motel; Gray booties - Forever21}


Got this dress for $30 on ASOS when they had their Motel flash sale a few weeks back. It was actually designed to be a bit of a midi dress, but it made my legs look mad stumpy, so I shortened the hem. It's times like these I feel sort of crafty, when in reality, I just own a pair of scissors...

The best part about dresses with pockets: you don't have to put your phone in your bra.
The worst part about dresses with pockets: you look like you have some wide-a** birthing hips.

{Striped bodysuit - F21; Shorts - American Apparel; Flower headband - ASOS; Boat shoes - Steve Madden}


I just got four of these new striped bodysuits from Forever21 for around $7 each (this, this, and this), and I am absolutely in love with them! Pros and cons to bodysuits, let's see...
Pro: Saves you the trouble of haphazardly stuffing your shirt into your pants.
Con: You look like a baby in a onesie without bottoms...

It's surprisingly easy to come to terms with feeling like a giant baby, so I've barely taken them off since they got here. These literally work with any outfit. I highly recommend!

{Stalactite top - Sugarlips; Bandage skirt - F21; Gold necklace - F21; Booties - Nine West; Ugly Purple Bracelet - Thanks, senior week administration}

Oh hey, remember me? I used to blog.

Sorry I've been so incredibly out of the loop lately. I have never had such a busy social life. (Well, I'm usually a pretty lame homebody.) But I don't even think I've been home for more than 2 hours this entire week. My Senior Week full of partying and debauchery is currently winding down, and I'm graduating tomorrow!

I've also come to the realization that I am not ready to be a real person yet. I'm just a college kid who naps twice a day and thinks microwavable pizza rolls are a legitimate meal... What do you want from me?! Having a little bit of an internal freak out session. S'all good.

Anyways, the lovely ladies at SugarLips sent me the Stalactite Find Top, and it's so beautiful. I love the design on the top of the shirt and how it flows in the back. It's really much prettier in person.

I styled it with my new gold plate necklace, which seems to be all the rage lately. These kinds of necklaces keep getting sold out quickly, but I finally found this one on Forever21 and ordered it faster than you can say VISA. There are some other really great, affordable ones here, here, and here if you guys are interested.
