I found the dress I wore on my 21st birthday celebration in college! Actually, my mom did. Ahh, it's been so long. Surprised it still fits, since I was a stick figure back then! Reunited and it feels so good. :)

California Girl

Okay, I lied. I'm not from California at all. I just liked the shirt? It says "California Republic" and a stranger who was wearing a shirt that said the same thing approached me. "Looks like we've got the same taste in clothing," he said. "I'm from California." I responded with, "Uh, what?" He pointed at my shirt and I was like, "Ooohhh, I'm not really from California," and laughed. I was kind of embarrassed, as I felt like a bit of a poser. Haha oh well. 

My friends and I like to do fun mini photo shoots in random places when it's 100+ degrees outside...

Monday... Is just another morning

No, I didn't wear this to work, lol. I love effortless looks like these that are still comfortable. Perfect for a casual Monday night outing. 

Cropped top from Windsor, Banana Republic cardigan, Zara skort, Michael Kors watch, Cole Haan wingtip oxfords 

These Cole Haans are amazingly comfortable. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the Nike Air soles. I wonder if it gives me mad hops, too! ;)

Summer time

My cousin decided to have her outdoor wedding on the second day of summer, and what better way for Texas to welcome us to the season than to break 100 degrees... Ouch! 

Dehydration, heat, and perspiration aside, it was a lovely wedding.

Kensie maxi dress (on clearance for a whopping $15!), Ann Taylor Loft belt, Derek Lam 'Evie' clutch (Barney's New York), Jimmy Choo heels, Chanel earrings, Kate Spade bracelet

Black & White

Okay, everyone knows this "skort" is THE skort of the summer, as it's been featured in pretty much every single fashion blog known to womankind. I tried buying it in all 3 colors- black, white and cobalt blue, but failed, since there's only one Zara in Dallas and the online store didn't have blue ones in my size in stock. Boo, you whore. Anyway, I was able to find both the black and white in stores in an XS. Score! 

Zara top (2012), Zara skort, Steve Madden for LF Stores heels, Michael Kors watch

Still on the hunt for the cobalt blue ones! Going to Miami for the weekend, so wish me luck! :-)

Asos kitty cat knit top, Asos scalloped hem shorts (got mine years ago, but similar here), tights from Hong Kong, Jeffrey Campbell Maddow Oxfords from LF Stores

This is my first time creating a post through the Blogger mobile app! Hopefully, it looks good, so I can make more posts this way, when I'm on the go.

This was a conversation I had with my sister today, regarding my shoes:

Sis: "Hey, do you have any black flats I can have? Mine are getting worn out."
Me: "Hmm. Yes. These Jeffrey Campbell's I have on right now. They remind me of Wednesday on The Addams Family."
Sis: "No. I don't want people making fun of me at school. I don't want to eat my lunch in the bathroom!"

How rude! And yeah, we reference the movie "Mean Girls" a lot. Haha anyway. Good day! :)

Missing him was dark grey all alone

But loving him was red" - T. Swift
