Stars & Bikes

Hello, World.

I had so much fun putting together the outfits for the Warby Parker Summer Collection, that I wanted to make sure I shared the details for all the outfits.

This outfit is perfect for riding your bike on a summer morning! I like the cool tones of the pale denim on light blue. The outfit feels airy and light and perfect for summer days. I hope you’re having a great Thursday night!

My Style Diaries: Blue Flowers

Hello, World.

This weekend was rather eventful. My mom and I got pedicures on Friday, then hit Barnes and Noble for a coffee date/ browsing for more summer reading books. On Saturday, I went to a baby shower with my family, which was beautiful. On Sunday, we headed to our family cabin for a Father’s Day relaxation and fancy dinner. Today is Monday, which despite the fact it is summer and I am currently on vacation, is still one of my least favorite days. However, I am at my cabin for a week, and I plan to read on the beach, relax in the evening, sit on the deck, and go browse the small boutiques in town. We are in the mountains, and the weather is nice and cooler, and it’s still a little quiet because the summertime cabin renters haven’t started flowing in my the masses, which is fine by me. Anyway, I wanted to share the outfit I wore to the baby shower on Saturday. I found this dress at Old Navy, and I love it. It’s super easy to throw on, and it’s very comfortable with a good amount of detail.

I love this dress! Honestly, I was a little scared when I originally bought it because it doesn’t have much shape, and I get nervous that shapeless pieces can look frumpy or make me look bigger, but this dress is still flattering (in my opinion). I love the beautiful stitched flowers and the clean tones! I also love the details at the bottom.

Funny story, however. Saturday was the first time I wore this dress, and while I was excited, I was nervous about wearing white. At the baby shower, the couple served these amazingly delicious pulled pork sandwiches. My dad was behind me in the food line, attempting to put barbecue sauce on his sandwich. Suddenly I heard a loud splat, and looked over to see that the sauce has squirted all over the place, including the back of my dress. YIKES. Luckily, the sauce came out of my dress and my dad’s shirt and shorts. It was a funny moment, and I’m glad the sauce didn’t stain my dress. Perhaps this is why the idea of white jeans still scares me.

June Tune Diaries + White Shorts

Hello, World.

It’s the second day of June, so I thought I would share my playlist for the month. I am finally fully unpacked, and I’m reading, and I’m writing. I’m writing the novel that’s been in the back of my mind for months now, and it feels really good. I finally found the perfect place to start. Something I’m learning about writing is that it’s easier to get to where you’re going if you allow yourself to revisit where you’ve been. I have a story I want to tell, and it’s time i tell it…so I’m writing it the only way I know how, in a novel. Anyway, here is what I’m currently listening to while I write:

I also wanted to share the outfit I wore yesterday. I’m obsessed with this blouse’s pattern and colors!

Lusting Over…

Hello, World.

Summer is here, and I’m soaking it up as much as possible. I love the easy, carefree feeling of summer, and I love being able to create my own schedule, and I love being able to just relax and not be in school for a little while. Anyway, I thought I would share what I’m currently craving.

I really like simple swimsuits. Sometimes I feel like swimsuits get too busy or fluffy or whatever. I like a simple, base color swimsuit to lie in the sun in and read a book while getting some rays. I have the tendency to burn, but I’m hoping I can at least get a base tan this summer. I also really like baseball caps right now. I desperately want one from Vineyard Vines, either in navy or pink. Or maybe both. I also love a good beach tote to take a towel, book, and tan lotion to the beach in. Something about having a cute tote makes going to the beach a little easier because you have a cute place to put all your stuff. Lilly Pulitzer shorts are the most adorable things. Seriously, her patterns are amazing and so cheery and I love the scallop detailing on the edge. I also am trying to build a cute stack of bracelets, and I love Kate Spade’s ‘smile’ bracelet. I also want to invest in a monogram necklace because I feel like they are just so cute, classic, and easy to wear with everything. A cute, easy to throw on cover up is also a must for summer. I love dresses in summer because they’re so easy to throw on, and they are cooler than shorts.

What are you craving?
