Black, White, and Blue Adventure



Shirt, Bracelet, Necklace, Purse, Sunglasses-H&M
Dress-Asos
Shoes-American Eagle
Hair-Twisted to the side then pushed up a bit. All pulled into a ponytail.

Not going to lie, I really enjoyed wearing this. This is one of my favorite t-shirts and pairing it with this dress was, for some reason, very satisfying. We've seen this dress previously here. Maybe I was satisfied since it's not necessarily the normal way to wear the dress. Side note: I was also pleased with my hair. Good day! It may have been because I was out for a wonderful day with my friend Meghan. Thanks for taking my pictures, Meghan!

Music Monday

It was a fun but trying weekend in which I was recovering from a nasty flu thingy and then tried to do a bit too much and caused myself to get more sick. Sometimes I seem to forget that I know better. Oh well. I think the fun was worth it! Mostly...my body doesn't agree. To start the week on a sweet note:

Planning for Brave

Alright, you might have guessed, but I love Disney. Therefore I get excited when new movies come out. With Brave coming out though there was more to be excited about than just Disney: Scotland, horses, pretty dresses, pretty scenery, and awesomely wild hair.

So I'm going to do some theme dressing for when I see it. My sister found these for me and I thought I'd pass them along. Please go on over to the site to read more about the outfits. Cheers!

Waterfront BBQ Adventure




Shirt-Forever 21
Dress, Bracelets, Sunglasses & Purse-H&M
Necklace & Shoes-AE
Hair-Low, one sided french braid

This has been in my stash for a bit as I wore it, like a month ago, to a BBQ festival. Mmmmm, yes, BBQ. Couldn't have been better; great food on the waterfront. When getting dressed I knew I was taking a risk by wearing something white (white-ish) to a place awash in BBQ sauce. Deep...maroon... colored...messy sauce. It's an invitation for me to wear said sauce rather than just eat it. Thankfully, I made it through the day unscathed. I may be getting better at this than I thought.

PS. Thanks, Kristen, for being my photographer!

Music Monday...on a Tuesday

Yesterday was one of those days that I thought I had more time than I actually did. One of those days I was glad I happened to wear a cute dress to work since there was no time to stop at home. One of those days I think I'll be home at a decent hour but then I have so much that I don't get home until super late. One of those days of fun!
Because I happen to love this song (it has been on frequent play for quite some time now) and the video is fantastic I can't wait until next week to post it. It's a song that I not only love to sing but is meaningful as well. And of course the video's scenery and fashion are wonderful. So please enjoy.

Somber Colors Adventure






Dress & Belt-H&M
Blazer-LC by Lauren Conrad, Kohl's
Shoes-Christian Siriano for Payless
Necklace-Forever 21
Hair-French Braid from one side to the end of hair and then wrapped in a bun.

Sometimes the events and places one has to go to are not the most pleasant. This was one of those occasions. I went to a funeral of a family friend. Somber colors are in order for that. But still when you look good, you feel good. For me, even in times of sadness, it helps to be put together. Unfortunately, my hair doesn't always want to stay put together. Please excuse the stray hair and bobby pins that found their way out in perfect time for pictures.

PS. Thanks sis for taking pictures!

Mixing Patterns Adventure






Shirt, Skirt, Shoes, & Necklace-AE
Bracelets-H&M
Hair-Fishtail braid wrapped into bun

All right, truth time, I'm not fully behind pattern mixing. I think I might just need to find the right patterns or it just isn't me. Don't know yet. But I do know that this pattern mixing for my outfit, I don't mind. So when entering into this wild world of pattern mixing a good tip is stripes and flowers. While I think I might just stick to this, but who knows? Sometimes I get adventurous.

Pink Flower Garden Dress Adventure






Dress-LC by Lauren Conrad, Kohl's
Sweater-Nordstroms
Belt & Headband-H&M
Shoes-Modcloth

Light, long, pink and with flowers. A fine dress anytime, if I do say so myself. That might be all that needs to be said about it, actually. Lovely.

Music Monday

Happy Monday! I need more time to catch up on sleep. Made some spontaneous choices that led to loads of fun and little sleep. Good trade off, I say! Now for music. Just discovered these girls and am quite happy I did. They are fantastic! Enjoy.

Relaxed Stripes Adventure

Sometimes, when running around, all I want is comfort. This look to me seems effortlessly comfortable.  Therefore I run around happy. All set for the cool spring breezes.

Goonies & Pirate Adventure






Shirt-Target (Men's)
Shorts-LC by Lauren Conrad, Kohl's
Tights-Target
Shoes, Bracelet, & Purse-H&M
Hair-Two sections at crown of hair, twisted and pulled back then loosely pinned

This backdrop at Disneyland was perfect for the way my outfit was making me feel that day. Maybe it was the Goonies shirt already put me in the pirate mood or maybe (and this is more likely) my mind naturally jumps to pirates. Every time I looked down the tights, shorts, and shoes I thought of olden days and therefore pirates. So it goes. Oh and Goonies never say die!

P.S. Thanks sis for taking pictures!

Music Monday

After a tough day I need some Coldplay. Always makes me feel better...that, and tea or chocolate or ice cream.

Feminine/Masculine Adventure






Dress & Belt-Asos
Blazer-LC by Lauren Conrad for Kohl's
Bracelet-H&M
Shoes-Christian Siriano for Payless
Hair-Small section in front twisted, then pinned back

This was for a packed Sunday. Going from church then to a performance of Sweeney Todd (which was great!) then to other things I can't remember, this dress kept me happy all day. Dress well, feel well. Bright and floral; feminine dress and masculine blazer. Balance and looking put together all while being comfortable. Multi-tasking success!
