It's Still Summer Here.

I want to start out  by saying I feel very "Saved by the Bell" in this outfit. And that is why I LOVE it. haha. As a matter of fact, that may be one of my favorite dresses now. :]
I loved the tiered fabric, the sweet little floral print, and the fact that the background of it is black. It's a fun little summer dress, but it can easily be paired with some tights for fall. I can't wait. 

It was fun to pair the chambray shirt, and keep things casual. Like I always do. haha. But tying it up like that keeps it fun. And 90s. What could be better?

Shoes- Wanted from Ross ($10!)/all jewelry one dollar!)

I'm keeping this post short tonight. It's been an emotionally draining day. Well, week, even. Whew. So much on my mind, and so much to do! I think my procrastination will prevail. haha. 
Have a good night everybody!

No Need to Say Goodbye

Okay, a lot of you are already showing off some fall styles. But I live in Texas, people. It's still summer here. haha. So I will take advantage of that until we finally get some temps below 80. Who knows when that will even be.

The orange top is my mom's, so it's a bit too big. And that's why I like it so much. :) I've worn it with numerous outfits, so I thought it was finally time to get some photos. Also, I think I've definitely got my money's worth out of both this chambray skirt and the striped tank. Two awesome purchases.

And yes, I will one day figure out how to get good detail shots. Until then, try to squint your eyes just a little bit, and maybe it will look more in focus. :D

Orange top- Mom's ($free!)/Striped Tank- Norma Kamali from Walmart ($5!)/Skirt- Forever 21/Shoes- Candies from Kohl's ($3!)/All jewelry ONE DOLLAR each. :)

Tough Cookie.

I really have sooo much to talk about! haha. So enjoy that first teaser photo, because I'm gonna chat about things other than my clothes for a minute. :]
Last Wed night through Friday night I was in Oklahoma! If you've never read my first post, then I'll let you know.. I lived in Oklahoma for most of my life.. up until almost 2 years ago, when I moved here to Texas to stay with my mom and grandma for awhile. So anyway, all of my friends that I've grown up with pretty much live in Oklahoma. I had a couple of days off last week, and enough money to fill up my gas tank, so I headed north. I stayed with Amanda Emiley, my best friend, and her boyfriend. I got to see so many old friends! And it felt really good to be "home" again. You know? I have so many stories from my trip, but they probably wouldn't make sense to any of you. haha. I'll just say that I had an amazing time, and it was definitely needed. Relieved tons of stress! lol.

Okay, anyway.. I just had to get that all out, I've been so happy since my trip, and I can't wait to go back again!

So, this is my version of sweet and.. tough? haha. I guess. Mostly black with a light, sheer layer of soft pink. I honestly love it. I got the pink top in one of those $1 bag of clothes sales. Most awesome thing ever. It's vintage of some sort, but I'm not an expert. So who knows. I just know that it has pretty lace, pearl buttons, it's sheer, it's flowy, and I love it!
This was due to the fact that I hit the tripod after setting the self timer, and I didn't realize that it had turned the camera until I turned around to pose, so just to be silly I decided to jump in front of the camera real fast so that it wouldn't be a completely wasted picture. lol. I kinda like how it turned out. :]

Let me just say this.. the leaves may be turning brown and falling of the trees, but it is STILL hot as blazes here! I was seriously sweating during all this. The things I do. haha. Also, those shoes are completely ridiculous, and I nearly twisted my ankle quite a few times. I'm not a normal girl who is used to walking around in heels. I've said it before and I'll say it again. But it's not going to stop me from at least trying! :]

Also, that necklace and the bracelet were bought at a shop in Oklahoma that is literally called $1 Jewelry. Yes. Everything. One dollar. well, rings are 1.99, and they have purses that are 10-20. But yeah. It's pretty much mind blowing. Not gonna lie.
Pink top- Thrifted (about $.20!)/Striped tank- Norma Kamali from Walmart ($5!)/Jeans- Empyre from Zumiez (on sale but I don't remember how much. Like $10, I think!)/Shoes- Forever 21 ($13!)/Necklace and Bracelet- $1 Jewelry ($1 each!)
