    Styling Gingham for Summer

    SKIRT: Reclaimed Vintage (Asos)  |  SANDALS: Wanted  |  BAG: Unbranded (T.J. Maxx)  |  SUNGLASSES: Unbranded (T.J. Maxx)  |  T-SHIRT: H&M           I have been a lover of gingham since basically forever.  It just always reminds me of summer because so many picnic blankets come in gingham print.  I think Gingham can be good for fall and winter as well, but summer is more fun to style in my opinion.  I love this skirt because of the diagonal ruffle and the length.  I love how it is a bit longer than traditional midi skirts.  Midi skirts are normally unflattering on me because of my muscular calfs.  This…

    Sky Blue Satin Tank

    TANK TOP: Stradivarius  |  JEANS: H&M  |  BAG: Lulu’s  |  SHOES: Circus Sam Edelman  |  HEADBAND: H&M (similar)  |  HORN NECKLACE: Forever 21 (similar)  |  SUN NECKLACE: Souvenir from Hawaii           Today I am wearing my new satin tank top from Asos.  I bought it recently for my birthday and it is literally the softest satin that I have ever felt!  The only bad thing about it is that it wrinkles super easily.  I even ironed it before I put it on.  I paired it with my basic black jeans and this cute headband that I picked up today.  I found it at H&M for only $2!.  I’ve been super into headbands…

    4th of July in the OC

    ROMPER: Asos  |  PURSE: Coach (gift)  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero U.V.  |  SANDALS: T.J. Maxx           Happy 4th of July again! This year my husband and I spent the holiday in Orange County.  We went to the beach in Laguna pretty early.  We spent a few hours in the sun.  We were sitting in the sand when the California earthquake struck and we felt a few jolts.  That was the largest one that we had felt (until now while I’m writing this post, we had another large one).  Then we went home, made some turkey burgers, and ate apple pie.  After that we went to see fireworks in Huntington Beach.  The…

    Red Ruffles

    DRESS: Asos  |  SHOES: Meijer  |  BACKPACK: Primark  |  SUNGLASSES: Asos           Happy June 1st! I’ve had this dress since Christmas but haven’t been able to wear it because I needed to hem it.  It’s amazing how long you can put things off for without even thinking about it.  I have just been so busy with moving related activities.  After Christmas I had to pack, then I was physically moving and looking for apartments, unpacking, going back to Indiana and driving back again, looking for a job, apartment furnishing, and cleaning.  Everything just takes so much time.  I finally got around to hemming it last week and I…

    Tie Front T-Shirt

    TOP: Asos  |  JEANS: Forever 21  |  SHOES: Meijer  |  BAG: Topshop  |  SUNGLASSES: Asos           These flowers are everywhere in Southern California.  I literally see them everywhere.  I don’t know what they are called, but they are so pretty.  They range in color from red to light pink.  I thought they would look so cute against my new red and white striped t-shirt.  This top is from Pull & Bear, from Asos.  I love the way it ties in the front.  It is just so cool but also casual.  It was also very affordable.  I’ve already worn it twice in two days!

    Mint Tulle

    TOP: Zara | JEANS: Forever 21| FLATS: H&M | NECKLACE: Forever 21 | PURSE: Asos           I found this top at Zara in Canada last New Years.  I have been wanting to blog it ever since then, but just haven’t gotten the chance.  It’s one of my favorite tops.  It’s super unique, cute, and comfortable.  It totally embodies that whimsical style that I love so much.  I just paired it with this new pair of black jeans and a nude cami.
