Snap Out of It

According to me,
I've been an epic bum the past two weeks. Since I last posted, the only noteworthy things I've done are go to downtown Ann Arbor for an afternoon, read 3 books, and finish my Spring class.
So really, nothing noteworthy.
I just can't believe I read 3 books in 3 days. Insane. I was so absorbed by the plots though. Extremely interesting and thought provoking. I read The Joy Luck Club, Mrs. Kimble, and Shanghai Girls. All very good and I recommend them.
On a side note, I read a book called A Vintage Affair earlier this summer; all of you vintage clothes lovers would enjoy it. Go buy it!

Anyways, here's my inspiration for the next few days. I adore the hair and the tan. I plan to get a fierce (but safe!) tan next week on vacation. Wish me luck :)
How have you all been? I've acquired some new followers in my lazy absence, so I hope you enjoy visiting!

Stay productive! Or at least plan to.

It's Summer Time and the Livin' is Easy

According to me,
or so I wish...I've been crazy busy the past few days! I worked Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Yesterday I had my friend Kathryn over for a run and then we made low-carb cheesecake! It's so delicious.
I've been running a lot more lately. I actually ran 8 miles on Saturday. That's the longest I've ever run before. It was tough and I was rather sore the day after.
Anyways, here's what I wore today. This shirt is new, I love the fit of it. I paired it with my white shorts and olive belt; I wear them too much!

Shirt: Macy's
Shorts: Target
Belt: Forever 21
Earrings: No clue!

Stay relaxed.

Leather Tribal

According to me,
I now adore maxi dresses and skirts because they make me look so tall! I posted this one before, but I wasn't wearing it because it was too long. But, my lovely mother hemmed it for me, so I can finally wear it! The belt is actually the bracelet from yesterday haha.
Also, I've decided to wear my hair down more often. You all had such lovely things to say about it, that you've given me confidence to wear it! So thank you all so much for the lovely compliments!

Dress: Forever 21
Bracelet: H&M
Earrings: Forever 21
Belt: Vintage
Shoes: Target

Stay tribal.

Leather Bracelet

According to me,
I love using something in a new and different way. My bracelet is actually a belt. But, it's a rather tiny belt, so I used it as a bracelet instead. Someone complimented me on it today and had no clue it was a belt! Success!
As you all can see, I'm too obsessed with this skirt. It's my go-to piece when my outfit just isn't working.
Work was so great today! I'm really loving it at Fossil; it's hard work, but definitely fun.

Sweater: H&M
Skirt: Old Navy
Watch: Fossil
Necklace: Forever 21
Shoes: Target
Belt Bracelet: Vintage (My mom's from the 80s!)

Stay inventive.

The Real Deal

According to me,
this is the real deal when it comes to my hair. This is what my hair looks like after showering then putting product in (without product it's a hot mess). I don't normally wear it fully down because of the frizz and volume. I use bobby pins to pull the front back most of the time, but if I wear it down I use a really small curling iron to smooth out the frizz. But, I figured you guys should see my hair in it's natural state. So here it is! A lot of people don't believe me when I say this is my real hair. I actually had someone ask me if I curled it every morning. Yea, like I want to spend 2 hours doing this every morning haha.
What do you think? What does your hair look like in its' natural state? I'd love to know!

Stay natural.

Nautical to the Max

According to me,
this is the first maxi dress/skirt I've ever worn! I just bought a maxi dress, but it has yet to be worn. I paired this with a simple white tee, my white watch, and white heart earrings. I love the stripes, and this is the most comfortable skirt I've ever worn!
For makeup, I did some brown shades from Clinique. I love the slight smoky eye it gives. And, I parted my hair in the middle! I did this in yesterday's post too; I don't do it very often!

Skirt: Macy's
Shirt: Target
Watch: Fossil
Shoes: Target
Earrings: Forever 21

Stay to the max.

Bust or Must: Floral Head Scarf

According to me,
I'm going out on a limb here. I wanted to try a different type of feature, so I came up with "Bust or Must." I try something totally new that I've never worn before, and I want all of you to tell me if it's a bust or a must. Be honest! If it's a bust, I want to know! I don't want to walk around town wearin' a bust! So be honest, I'm all ears.

Today I chose to try a floral head scarf. I've been toying with the idea of wearing scarves on my head somehow, and this is what I came up with today. The scarf is vintage Express, I think I got it for 50 cents! I love tying it on bags or around my neck, but why not try it with a middle part and some bright lipstick? By the way, the lipstick is Glazed Berry from Clinique.

So, what do you think? Floral Head Scarf: Bust or Must??

Stay daring.

Procrastination Meets Inspiration

According to me,
although I have an essay due at 5PM tomorrow, I couldn't resist doing a post. I did not photograph my outfit today due to being rather busy. But, I wanted to share this spread with you. This is Jessica Miller for Harper's Bazaar UK. I love the lighting, editing, and makeup. Gorgeous.

Stay hardworking, but do take breaks!

Purple Bows and White Hearts

According to me,
I adore these white shorts! I just bought them, and want to wear them all the time. I really love that white is hot right now, it's such a classic color. And it brings out tans! I paired it with a simple tee and this purple belt with some big white heart earrings. I painted my nails mint green! What do you think?

Oh, and I must add that I'm addicted to raspberries right now. Aren't you? They're amazing.

Shorts: Target
Top: Target
Belt: Khol's
Earrings: Forever 21

Stay fresh.

Indigo Love

According to me,
I love this color! It's supposed to be big this coming fall, so why not get a head start? I paired it with my favorite only white vest, skinny jeans, and some fun accessories. Plus, I have been having loads of fun with my new found photo studio. I need to figure out how to get my shoes in the frame too (I use a stationary lens), so that will be worked on.
Oh, and take note that my only poses are hands on the hips or on the head. I'm not so creative haha.
The last pictures I chose to take of the vest and tuck in the tank. I love doing this look. but I'm a bit short and rather curvy so sometimes it doesn't work the best. But, I really like how these jeans fit me, so I went for it. Gotta embrace the curves! Which look do you guys like better?

Oh, and I will finish my big summer post soon...I promise. I know I keep saying that (on twitter), but it's for real this time!

Vest: Target
Tank: Target
Jeans: Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21
Bracelet: H&M

Stay confident.

The Closet

According to me,
my closet is my favorite part of my room. I was lucky enough to get a walk-in closet. It's not the biggest, but I'm lucky to have it! I organized and cleaned a lot yesterday, so I figured I'd show you all how I keep my closet. Number one necessity in my closet? The clear drawers. They don't take up a lot of space and hold so much. I couldn't survive without them! I only took a picture of my heels (which is lacking in abundance, sadly). I have on of those hanging shoe shelves that I keep all my flats and sandals in. Also pictured is my new maxi dress! I'm obsessed. I need to hem it though, I'm a bit short for it haha.
How do you keep your closet organized??

It's supposed to reach 92 degrees here today! Blisteringly hot. I suppose we'll just have to get used to it. I'm going on a run with my friend today and then we're heading to beach. Lots and lots of sunscreen!!! Hope it's not too hot by you!

(Sorry for the poor quality pictures! I only used my little point and shoot.)

Stay organized.
