A night on the beach with my lace up sandals

Every time I glance at my lace up sandals just sitting in my closet, I’m always reminded of that night. It was in late July, the sky was clear and the air was humid. It was our second date, we grabbed dinner downtown and then we decided to go to the pier. We walked hand in hand and eventually made our way to the beach. Everything about that night was perfect. Before that night, I knew I wanted my outfit to be girly, yet chic. I found this super cute, floral printed dress. It had this sort of hippy vibe, I loved it. As soon as I bought it I knew […]

Go with the peach dress for wedding season!

Who doesn’t love wedding season, especially when you get to wear that adorable peach dress! Well unless you’re a girl in your early to mid 20’s, you probably aren’t a huge fan of weddings. I just love everything about them from the table centerpieces to the bridesmaids dresses, they’re so fun. I can’t help but plan for my own wedding, what colors I want, what flowers I want, and even what I want my cake to look like. I take comfort in knowing that I’m not the only twenty-two year old who does this. Last summer my cousin got married in this little venue in Seattle. I had no idea […]

Gossip Girl Felt Hats

Does this Something Special felt hat from Nordstrom Rack that I found on Resultly remind you of someone? Someone who is well known, an IT girl, a fashion icon? Okay here are some clues, it is an American teen drama about New York City’s privileged young adults. Had a show title in mind? You got it right! If you are a die-hard follower of Gossip Girl you probably knew the first time you saw these fashionable hats. Most of us can take a page or two out of their style books, especially before hitting a popular downtown spot. You have two people in mind Serena van der Woodsen played by Blake Lively (aka the “it girl”) and […]

Stand Out In a Lime Green Dress

There’s something about yellow and lime that really compliments anyone with blonde hair. It also looks really good if you’re tan. I do have the blonde hair, but I lack the tan skin unfortunately. I’ve been holding on to way too many dark color dresses. One of the colorful dresses I’m trying to add to my wardrobe is the lime green dress. I saw Miley Cyrus wear it and fell in love. First of all, there are so many shades of lime green, but this one is perfect. I like that its a little more green than yellow. Miley also has a great body for this tighter dress, the blonde […]
