Lovely Summer

top - Grey Dog, a vintage boutique 
skirt - Grey Dog
belt - thrifted
bag - New York + Company
wedges, Gianni Bini - Dillard's
circle sunnies - Ultra Studios, local 

Wah! It's been a crazy few days for me. I graduated high school! And I got another new job. My family came up for the commencement and stayed for a few days so I haven't been able to keep up with blogger as much as I would have liked. Anyway, it's officially summer for me and I've been taking advantage of that. Although it's been super gloomy and rainy (and tornado-y!) I caught this brief sunlight for pictures. I absolutely love my new job (it's this cute local froyo bar) and the staff is great too, I'll have to upload pictures later. Speaking of work, this post will have to be a short one because I'm off to get ready now! Gotta make a quick coffee run before hand. 

Have a lovely day!

A New Chapter

dress - Gianni Bini
cardigan - Express
shoes - Kensie
hat - Forever 21
cuff - Mae's Emporium
bag - New York + Company

I graduate high school five days from today. It's weird - not having to worry about school work or studying for an upcoming test. Anyway, a few girlfriends and I had a lovely brunch today at a local Mediterranean Cafe, which is why I'm dressed so tea-like. I felt like such a lady in my headpiece; I've actually never worn that normally, it's usually part of a costume! 

Now that school is over, I have much more time to focus on my blog and summer hobbies! This spring/summer is all about starting and trying new things for me...starting with my hair. I love it, but I do miss having short hair at times!

Mixing Prints

Lately, I've been obsessed with mixing prints, especially florals and stripes. There's something so whimsical about florals and stripes that make me feel so young and fresh! The fun part about pairing the two together is that there are so many different ways in which the combination can be worn:

This Free People ad shows off the carefree, boho-chic look that is always comfy and stylish! It's a perfect daytime look paired with a nice platform or wedge sandal.

This look proves that color coordination is key. The light pinks and purples tied together with a deep indigo provide for a perfect spring-ish feel. 

This is the definition of a "modern girl tea party" look. The structure in the shirt and skirt play against each other wonderfully, while the statement necklace doesn't make it too boring.
