Flowers & Denim

dress- Target, sandals- Cynthia Vincent for Target, denim bangles- DIYed, denim bag- Coach

I am in love with the color of this dress. I'd been on the search for the perfect brightly colored summer dress, and I found it at Target. I'm not surprised, Target is freakin' fab. So I made a decision that I will not be continuing my blog for too much longer. It has become one of my favorite hobbies, but I find that I do not have the time I want to devote to it, and in the next couple months, I'll have even less time. It makes me really sad, but I will still be reading all your blogs on my down time!

I'm also sad because this vacation is almost over. That means, it's back to the real world. You know, the job and the stress lol. Time flies when you're having fun.

Trying to take pictures in a moving vehicle

tank- Walmart, skirt- Forever 21, sandals- Walmart, sunglasses- Walmart, purse- Sag Harbor

Finally made it to Denver! The good news is that the trip wasn't that long, and the weather is very pleasant (as opposed to the oven-like conditions of Texas). I wore this out to lunch with the fam, a movie (Pirates; Johnny Depp is gorg!), and some shopping.

It is SO difficult trying to take good pictures inside a vehicle going 80 mph. It's just impossible! Which is why we pulled over for a few lol. I can't be taken on road trips because I will want to stop as much as possible to take pictures of all kinds of things!

Hope you ladies are having as great a weekend as I am! I am off to do some more shopping! :)

See Ya!

Perfect Road Trip Outfit

It is finally here! I am leaving for Denver, Colorado early in the morning. I didn't think it would ever arrive...work has been kicking my butt! And I do apologize for lack of posting; I just haven't had the time for anything lately. But I do plan on posting during my vacay - I'll have some downtime to edit my pictures of the day. Above is my "Perfect Road Trip Outfit," which consists of comfy cutoffs, an orange tank, nude flip-flops, and a long sleeve striped top for when it gets chilly in the car. I decided not to pack any heels on this trip because I'm going for total comfort, and we are planning on doing alot of walking! So flats, flip-flops, and sandals are going to be my mainstay!

My Messy Suitcase

Vintage Makeup Case

This is my favorite thriftstore find to date. I love the vintage yellow color, and the little locks in the front work great. It is in such wonderful condition!

Holds all my makeup perfectly, including some lotions and other beauty product underneath this compartment tray.

Handbag Essentials

I'm keeping it simple with a small purse that goes with all my outfits, yet holds all my essentials like my Ipod, sunglasses, Blistex, nail polishes, and my Blackberry.

Road Trip Reads

I guess that is all for now, I am going to relax and catch up on my favorite blogs I've been neglecting!

Date Night

blazer- TJ Maxx, lace top- thrifted, shorts- thrifted/DIYed, wedges- Charlotte Russe, chain bag- thrifted

Sooo....I guess some of ya'll have been dying to hear about my date? Well, I don't want to kiss and tell lol. Just kidding, what's the point of kissing if you can't shout it from the rooftops?? It was AMAZING. This guy is like no guy I've ever dated before! I don't want to get my hopes up or anything, so I'll leave it at that so I don't jinx anything. Oh, and second date is Saturday!

 I am just IN LOVE with the shorts/blazer combo this season! It's so sexy with a touch of androgeny. Plus the chain necklace and earrings give it a little rock-and-roll quality. You can't tell from the pics, thank god, but it is 106 degrees (and it was a little after 6 in the evening) - HOT!

Thanks to all the wishes of good luck on my date - it must have worked!

Lacy Days

lace top- gift, brown shorts- thrifted, clutch- WalMart, clogs- Payless

How was everyone's weekend? Mine was okay. I got a new car and a date for this weekend lol. It was too funny though, because my date is going to be the salesman that sold me my new car - pretty cute story. I will definitely post pictures and let you all know how that one goes.

I love this clutch. It has removable straps, so you can wear it as a shoulder or cross-body purse, a wristlet, or a regular clutch. Simple design that can be worn with many outfits. I made the flower ring I'm wearing (kind of hard to see).

I'm just loving the mixing of patterns and fabric here, yet they kind of match in a neutral way.
