My Back To School Look!

Ughhh school. It’s so close!!

I know it might be weird, but I’m really pumped to be a freshman. We’re on the bottom of the food-chain, but high school just looks so exciting!

It’s time to prove yourself, and a fresh new look is what you need.

Starting off, I picked a BEAUUUTIFUL dress from my fave online store, Modcloth.

It’s the “Soda Fountain” dress in the color ginger.

It’s totally 50’s…my favorite fashion era.

I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN HOW MUCH I LOVE IT.

While other girls will go to school in their UGGs, skinny jeans, and PINK t-shirts, I’ll be the one who waltzes through the doors in a 1950’s goldenrod dress. I love everything about it, the buttons, the cinched waist, the cap sleeves. I can totally picture myself sipping an ice cream float in this. ;}

And for footwear, I chose some red TOMS to really add a nice contrast. The red looks reaalllyyy good with the dress.

They’re simple, classic, and comfortable. You can also pair them with a dress without making it look TOO casual, or rock them with jeans, shorts, whatever!

They are totally universal, and I love the detailed insides!

And of course, you can’t go to school without your bag! What else would you hold pens, pencils, books, homework, papers, supplies, food, and who-knows-what-else in?

Delia’s has the cutest little backpacks. I like this one because (A: It holds a lot) and (B: It’s classic)! The leather look never goes out of style, even if it’s faux.

Forget clunky, huge backpacks! This one’s nice and petite, so it’s easy to stuff in your locker.

Now last, but not least, I picked out an adorable pair of earrings. You could call these the cherry on top of this look!

*Ba dum tiss!*

Cute, huh? And yeah, I know, my joke was lame.

If you want to buy these earrings, you can get them here at Etsy , the utopia for all things cute and unique! These earrings add a vintage and quirky feel, which I like. Plus, when you put up your hair in science, they’ll be a total eye-catcher!

That’s all I have for today, my doves.

DUECES!

(Oh, and P.S: Are any of you excited to go back to school like I am? Let me know!)

Summer Dream Look

MY DARLINGS, MY ANGEL-FACES, MY DOE-EYED BEAUTIFULS, MY GORGEOUS FOLLOWERS, MY LOVELIES, MY DOVES.

I’ve been gone for SO long and I’m so sorry.

I know I haven’t pieced together a look for a while so here ya go!

So, for starters, I picked out my ultimate dream bikini, or “midkini”, from Delias! Image

I like how it has cups..for someone who has small boobs (like me) that adds some dimension.!

Plus, the mint/floral pattern is SO CUTE. I feel like it would make tanned skin pop, and really be an eye-catcher. I’m actually ordering this midkini, ‘cuz I love it that much! ❤

Check it out here. It’s on sale, ladies!

And from Etsy, I picked out a fabulous sand-dollar hairpin to compliment the summer idea.Image

It’s super beachy, but simple enough to not be distracting. It’s totally mermaid-esque. And you’ll probably be playing in the water…so you don’t really want to have too much accessories.

And now…BODY GLITTER!! Okay, seriously, it’s not just for strippers. A little on the shoulders and legs can look really flattering and fun. Image

I picked out a body glitter from Victoria’s Secret, but a lot of companies and brands have glitter sprays, sticks, creams, lotions, or powders. You just have to look around!

Online, VS has three flavors: “Marshmallow Gold”, “Candy Baby”, and “Cocoa Bronze”. All of them sound delicious to me!

Next, why not add some fun earrings?

These ones are from the “Bauble Bar” at Baublebar.com

I just feel like they’re simple enough to not take anything away from the outfit…but they add an adorable detail!

Off to bed, then, for sweet, summery dreams.

Five Weekly Faves!

Hey Curly-Fries ❤ (Can I call you guys that?)

This week I had a lot of interesting favorites that I thought I could show-and-tell. I rarely ever do favorites, but here y’all go!

Favorite #5: Natural Scents Candle in “Vanilla Latte”

Image

This candle smells reallllly great, sort of like a creamy vanilla candy, with no coffee-reminescent smell to be detected. Natural Scents has THE BEST candles, and their selection of scents is astounding. They have everything from Sugar Cookie to Eggnog to Birthday Cake to Watermelon to Bubblegum to Raspberry Truffle to Ylang Ylang and everything in between.

The best part is the glass square it comes in is made out of recycled materials! Score!

You can get them here. :}

Favorite #4: Lace Socks 

Image

Who doesn’t love some feminine lace socks? I love the little button accents and the lace on the hem! They were made by Grace and Lace Company on Etsy, who makes a lot of girly socks, leg-warmers, and the like. This particular style also came in mint..one of my fave colors!! Image

Weekly Favorite #3: Zoi Greek Yogurt in “Raspberry Cream” Flavor Image

In my opinion, Zoi makes the best greek yogurt in stores. I’ve tried all types from all brands, but this is my favorite. It’s got a solid, creamy-white upper layer, then a soft bed of fruit in the bottom. I like how it’s not gooey and chunky like other brands; it’s more like you’re eating a cheesecake than anything else. And it’s healthy!

Weekly Favorite #2: The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter 

Image

Not gonna lie..I’ve used up at least ten of these in my 13-year-old-life. But I just got a new one this week, and supposed that I’d better add it to the list!

First off, the scent is soft. It doesn’t bombard you, it BECKONS you with coconutty goodness. And it moisturizes your skin like no other, actually repairing it with each use. I love coconut scents, but if they’re not your thing, The Body Shop has many other options!

Weekly Favorite #1: MAC Lipstick in “Syrup” 

Image

I recently got this in the mail with a bunch of other MAC lipsticks, but this is one of my most favorite. It’s described as a “cloudy pink” on the MAC website, but in reality it’s more of a creamy mauve.

I love it. It’s a great everyday shade, and I’ve been wearing the heck out of it.

Anyway..that’s all for today!

I’m really tired, so I’m going to crawl in bed and take a leisurely sleep.

‘Nighty night starlets. ❤

My “Wishful Thinking” Spring Outift

It seems like all the spring trends are always bright and blah: patterns, bright colors, statement shoes, bright eyewear, and the like. Let me tell you a secret, ladies…You don’t have to depend on the guidance of fashion mags for what to wear!

During the sunny, crisp days of spring, there’ so much inspiration in the weather and nature! Here’s my “wishful thinking” spring outfit WISHES, and WANTS:

First off, I found this hair bow on Etsy.com, my SAVIOR for all things cute and unique!

Image As you can see, it’s a very soft, delicate pattern, with very soft, delicate colors! The pearl accent adds to the vintage touch, and it looks girly without being TOO “little-girlish”.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the color mint for springtime!! Seriously. Mint is soo refreshing, sweet, and screams “Spring! Spring is here!”

Image

I just typed into Google “mint dress” and a bazillion options came up! This one is the “Filled With Merri-Ment Dress” from Modcloth. If I had this dress I would literally die. It’s so adorable!!

Image

Where I’m from, it’s mildly dewy in the spring. I like prancing around in cute little rain boots, splashing in puddles and what not. Doing happy-dances in the rain! Skipping through the damp grass!!! These. Are. So. Sweet. I adore the color…it’s like peaches and cream! These are Hunter Rain Boots from Bloomingdales, in the color “Flame”.

PLUS one jacket! Again, from Modcloth.

Image Meet “The Wheel Tough Gal Jacket”! Paired with the feminine, dainty pieces, it adds a nice contrast because it has a rebellious touch.

Anyway..I hope I didn’t bore you all to death! What are some of YOUR favorite things to wear for spring?

Luv ya!

Mini Update!

Hi lovelies!

I’m just writing this to say hello, and sorry I haven’t been posting as frequently as I should. Things have been so hectic in my life, I just wanted to let you know I haven’t disappeared of the face of the planet.

Anyway, I found the CUTEST clutch on Etsy. The minty color is so refreshing for spring, and it adds a graceful, feminine touch with the lace! Image

You can buy one here!

Also, just in time for spring trends, here’s some chic sandals from Jellypop. I love the flower accent; they just look so natural and girly! Image

I know some people don’t really care about updates like these, but I just wanted to let you know I can’t wait to talk to you again, and miss you all dearly. ❤ PLUS, I wanted to show some cute, springtime accessories. I’m going to try to incorporate a little more fashion into my posts!

Luv ya!
