BLACK HAUL





Hi everybody! Like I mentioned in my last post, here are some goodies that I have picked out for summer. Why are they all black do you ask (when summer is all about color color color!)? I have no idea. I guess I just gravitate toward this shade. Yikes! And of course I have to have something leather in this haul: BEAUTIFUL leather shorts from Forever 21. I am absolutely in love with them. All items purchased are from Forever 21.

DENIM ON DENIM ON DENIM





Hi everybody! I am in an extremely happy mood today, even though this week is finals week for me. This is probably the first "Lazy Sunday Morning" that I have had in a while. I plan on spending the rest of my day getting a bite to eat with some friends and then taking unnecessary but amazing naps cuddled up in my bed. I hope you guys have a great day too. A picture will be posted up later today of a few goodies I picked up at the mall these past weeks, so don't forget to check back!

I'M OBSESSED WITH THE MESS THAT'S AMERICA




Happy Sunday! This post is quite late, but please forgive me! I have been a busy bee this past week and have had no time to post anything! Really quickly, I shall show you my Wednesday lookbook outfit! Voila! 




P.S. I am shamelessly obsessed with Marina and the Diamonds right now. Currently listening to her album "The Family Jewels" and I am HOOKED. Here's a song I can't stop singing to:

TOMS + STUDS




Long (soon to be!) summer days and walks on the boardwalk call for a bit of bad ass and edge. I have been studding my TOMS as well as friends' to make a bit of cash. They have gotten many compliments in the middle of shopping trips to Nordstrom and my local Westfield Mall. These studded TOMS look so professionally done and little do people know it only costs a few dollars to do! You could get these 10mm studs from eBay or Etsy. Can you say genius?

Have fun studding! I know I did.

AMERICAN DREAM




Lately, I have been spotting American Flag Print everywhere. My sister has recently picked up an American Flag Scarf from Brandy Melville! It's really amazing, it really is. Also, with July 4th coming soon, these are the perfect things to wear. I personally do not have a pair, but I am on the lookout! Instead, to get the same look and feel, I paired my striped red and white chiffon button up with my high waisted shorts that I have been wearing nonstop. I got them for $9 from an online thrift/used/random facebook shop online. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. All photos lead to their sources.

STUDDED BACKPACK



DIY Studded Backpack, Crochet Top from F21, Denim Cutoffs from Thrift Store, Black Booties from Forever 21

Today I purchased these denim cutoffs for only $9. They fit perfectly and are amazing! I also love my new crochet top with my DIY studded backpack. You could purchase these studs from Etsy or another studding site. Happy Wednesday :)

COBALT BLUE



Cobalt Blue Dress from F21, Necklace from UO, Black Wedges from Target!

Hi y'all! Today I got in the mail this beautiful cobalt blue dress from Forever 21. Unfortunately, I had to return it today because it wasn't my cup of tea. It's still available on the site if you are interested :)

As of late, I have been making American Apparel-esque bows and twisty headscarves: the perfect pop of color to any outfit. They are super easy to make, and I have been selling them to my friends, schoolmates, etc. It's been getting super hot here... almost 90 degrees. These headscarves (below) are perfect for keeping my hair out of my face.

MINI HAUL & OUTFIT OF THE DAY









Happy Saturday everyone! Here is a mini collective haul I have for you. The weather has been amazing and will be amazing next week: highs in the high 70s. Perfect for this lightweight open knit sweater, crochet knit tank, and a sheer striped button up that I purchased from Forever 21. I also bought a pair of nude platforms from Payless. I got them for $20 and they make a great dupe for the Steve Madden Dynamite. If you're wondering about my backpack, I got it as a birthday gift from my sisters! I studded the bottom myself with silver bag studs from Etsy.
Now back to curling up in a ball and finishing up my book: A Game of Thrones. It is definitely a page turner and a great read, y'all should check it out!
I also went to the movies yesterday to watch The Avengers. A great mix of action, humor, and superheroes. Go watch it now!

FRIDAY FRENCH MACAROONS





Happy Friday everyone! Today I made French Macaroons, recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart. The recipe is absolutely perfect! I made a batch of original almond macaroons and a batch of chocolate. They both came out beautifully! I used nutella in the middle (no, I was not too lazy to make a filling). I used a gel food coloring to get the "Tiffany&Co Blue" and folded into my batter before piping. They almost look too stunning to eat... but of course I ate them anyways... ha ha ha. Try out the recipe for yourself (it might take a few tries to get it just right) and I promise you it will be worth it!
