Thank you guys for the well wishes.. I’ve totally missed the blogosphere! What I’m wearing today is a dress that I’ve had for a while but contemplated if I liked it or not because of the racing stripes pattern. I was drawn to it because of its shift shape and the cute bow on the back (which I just realized I don’t have a clear picture of). The dress hits at the knee so I threw on a belt since I didn’t want the dress to feel overpowering with its bagginess and long length. I seriously can’t shake my love for basic colors.. red, white, black and a hint of gold. I’d be fine if that was the whole color scheme of my wardrobe!

I’ve had an infection and back pains all weekend and its lasted through today so I’ve been a little miserable but I finally feel a little better and now can share a look that I’m loving lately…

I’ve totally been drawn to the hot white trend. I’m loving how crisp white on white is and it’s so fitting for summer so I had to give it a shot!

Cool tones for the warmer months.. I mean it’s only fitting. A knee length dress isn’t usually something I wear, I’m 5’1″ so I’m sure you get why. I bought this dress last year when I was in Vegas and a button on my top had fallen off.. Closest store was H&M and this was the first thing I saw. I loved the fun print and neckline on it so I snagged it instantly! Oh and of course it’s from the Beyonce collection so helloooo, no second guessing! I know that these sunglasses are everywhere but I seriously am obsessed with them! The perfect summer sunnies, Ray Ban’s are timeless so these are a must! I hope you’re having a great Friday the 13th! Happy weekend!

I honestly only do my hair about twice a week, three times max. I get so lazy when it comes to doing it so this is what it looks like most days.. A high, hot mess pony. The worst thing about layers is that they never cooperate! See those annoying little pieces sticking up? Anyone have tips? Oh and I’ve been seeing the flannel around the waist trend making a comeback so I had to try it! I didn’t want to go out and buy one since the ones that I have are too short.. Enter the land of the boyfriend closet. It’s perfect for a cute statement and it’s easy to throw on for those chilly summer nights!

Graphic tee’s add so much character to an outfit and this one was no exception! I definitely need to do more cardio than shopping but hey, I couldn’t pass this shirt up! High waisted pants are also something I love but not particularly on me.. I’m not tall or super thin so putting on heels makes the look more flattering. And I’m not complaining.. If they didn’t kill my feet I would wear them for the rest of my life. Anyone else feel this way?

Ps. the scooter was just laying in the grass so of course I had to throw it in. 😉

It’s a no brainer that my favorite type of clothing are dresses. They’re just so easy to put on (seriously, only one piece!!) and can make me feel so feminine at any time. I especially love this one because of the fabric and the fit. It’s flowy, carefree and the floral print just takes the girly factor of this to a whole ‘nother level. I’m definitely not one to shy away from that so I already see myself grabbing this particular dress tons this summer! What’s your favorite piece of clothing?

Warning- you’ll see a ridiculous amount of black skater skirts on this blog. Seriously though, I have so many but I love all of them! I’d probably wear one everyday if it was appropriate. (Though, I already kind of do) Also, another disclaimer.. I have a lot of Abercrombie in my closet. When was the last time you walked in there? Haha well that was my first job and I’m now left with a closet full of random, basic, can’t let go of pieces of clothing from that store. Does anyone else have a hard time of letting go of old clothes?!

I love orange and pink together especially now that I’m realizing how much of it I have in my closet. It’s such a playful combination and is weather appropriate so of course I can’t get enough. As much as I love wearing darker colors, it’s hard to not opt for lighter hues with the weather being in the 80’s. No complaints here though, the perfect weather only lasts so long until it gets unbearably hot! What’s your favorite color combination for the hotter months?
