Oh Hey

Pardon my cliche fall post, but HELLO FALL! The cool weather has finally hit the south and I will admit that it feels fantastic. But not as fantastic as it felt to dig out this sweater from my closet- I bought this last spring at J. Crew and I have been dying to wear it. But I feel like people would question me if I pulled it out while the temperatures were still in the triple digits. I’ll admit- when I woke up this morning and say that it was 43 degrees, I was like, “um, no thanks, not today”, but I came around as soon as I discovered this little ensemble. Today when my college counselor asked me how I was, I practically screamed at him that I was “embracing fall”. Well. This outfit just seemed so fall-ish to me that I needed to tell someone. And I needed that person to appreciate it. So there.

Hot Pink

Yesterday was my last day of my internship! Sad face! But is was seriously one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I learned so much from all the fabulous women at the magazine and I’m hoping I can go back and work for them again! But enough sadness. I got to wear my favorite skirt yesterday! This skirt is SO flowy, and whenever I walk, it seriously has the prettiest flow behind me. It’s like a glorious cascade of hot pink chiffon. I am obsessed. And it’s really hard not to be happy while you are wearing that much pink.

Cute as a Button

When you don’t know what to wear, go with a button down. They go with everything, and make everything look classically chic. That plus my favorite J. Crew skirt makes for a perfect summer work outfit.

Working Girl

One of my favorite trends this Spring/ Summer is the shorts suit. I really just love the whole look of a blazer with shorts. So here is my take on it! For the past week and a half, I have been an intern at Justine Magazine.  I really love working there, but it has left me exhausted! So I am really sorry that I haven’t been able to do a lot of posting lately. School starts soon, so hopefully y’all can see all my back-to-school outfits!

On Pointe

Yes, I have worn this dress before. But it’s seriously one of my favorite pieces of my clothing. It is such a ballerina dress with its soft pink color and circle skirt. So of course I had to have a messy bun and delicate gold accents. So girly. So romantic. So ME!

P.S. Sorry I haven’t been able to post a lot lately. I’ve been working on all the summer work I have to get done before school starts. And I applied to COLLEGE! Woo small victories.

Sounds Like a Challenge

Some days are just a little slower than others. Yesterday, I tumbled out of bed and wandered around the house all morning until I realized that it was noon an we hadn’t done anything nor made plans to do anything. Then, I remembered that my mom and I had thought about seeing Snow White and the Huntsman. The only problem was that it is not playing in Modesto anymore and the closest place it is playing in Turlock (the next town over, about 30 minutes away). And, there was a show at 12:30. My mom and I were thinking about going to either that show, or the one at 3:30 when my grandma said, “Oh you can’t go to the 12:30 one, you’ll never make it”. Well, that made up our minds and we decided to go for the 12:30. And we made it with 5 minutes to spare!

P. S. Chris Hemsworth is lookin’ mighty fine that the movie.

Life’s a Beach

So I am finally in Monterey! My house here is one of my favorite places on the planet and I am so lucky that I get to come here twice a year! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera cord to download all the pictures, so I had to take a few on my phone. More pictures to come!
