Now Playing: Catacomb Kids by Aesop Rock

I know it’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted, but I’ve made it a goal to keep this thing updated as much as I can, especially during the cooler months.  My hair has gotten longer & lighter, none of my clothes fit me anymore because I’ve lost almost 15 pounds, and I’m almost done with college.  My cat just coughed up a hair ball and I have to go to work now.


there’s something about the summer

now playing: summer mood by best coast

I’ve been pretty bad at keeping up with this thing, but it’s just too hot to wear much of anything in Florida during the summer.  But here’s a post for you, this is close to what I’ve been wearing almost every day.  I love the summer, but I’m ready for the fall so that I can start wearing clothes and actually be comfortable in them.

do you love me, do you, surfer girl?

now playing: surfer girl – the beach boys

My mother is adorable and I love her very much!  Hey Mom!

I’ve been going to the beach so much lately that I think it’s time for a new swimsuit.  I’d like to find one that is more functional when it comes to my favorite summer hobby–surfing!  I got a 7’3 NSP board for my birthday back in March, and yesterday was the first day that surf conditions were close to perfect.  I spent all day yesterday and most of today out there and have neglected my dear blog.  I promise a new outfit post on Tuesday!

Oh and hello, followers!  I would like to get to know you!  Feel free to say hi :]

Another hot day in sunny Florida!  I’ve been wanting to wear this romper for some time now but I was not quite sure how to do it.  I’ve only worn the cardigan once in high school to my induction for the National Honor Society.  I must say, I do like the two together.  I took a risk with the color combination, but I think it works!  P.S. I’m obsessed with hot pink lipstick.

I have work today but I still wanted to make a post with two items that I am dying to have.  I am so happy that hippie chic is coming back in.  I can’t stress how much I love floral print, long messy hair, and comfortable clothing, (especially in the Floridan summer!).

I’ve been looking pretty intimidating lately.  My car is being worked on currently so what a better time than ever to throw together a cute summer outfit and share it with you.  Now it is time for a toasted tuna sandwich and a tall glass of water.  It’s hot outside today!

now playing: drop the plot – gregory pepper and his problems

I’m still easing into this fashion blogging thing, therefore I only have one image from yesterday to share with you.  I cleaned my closet out yesterday and realized that I need to replace 80% of it.  I need some good online shopping sources!  Currently, most of my money goes to Urban Outfitters but I’m willing to branch out if anyone has some suggestions!  I’m familiar with Asos and TopShop, but are there any others?
