But this is the outfit! I bought it at Forever21 for $8! They do not have it online anymore. But they have similar ones in other colors, such as this floral one, on their website. It is also insanely flattering, as hopefully you can see. I never wear cleavage bearing dresses because of insecurities. So this was a really big moment for me. I would have never done it without my best friend Toriana constantly hyping me up.
I paired this dress with this red belt. I bought in a small/medium which is a lie. It was like a hula hoop. So be ready to stab yourself multiple times trying to make another hole in the belt with a very dull steak knife. Until you give up and go find an actual adult with a toolbox to help. So maybe buy a size down.
I also wore it with these red flats which I adore! You will see them a ton this summer in my blog posts. They are so comfortable and stylish. My actual favorite shoes ever.
Until next time,
Pants, Shirt, Hoops, Lipstick in Underage Red
Okay so yet again a hurricane has kicked me out of my town which gave me some time off work to fashion blog!
I have had this shirt forever, but it just went on sale!
This shirt brings attention to something I do often which is clothes hunting. Basically, especially with unique vintage and modcloth, you should shop around for the best price. The clothing most of the time is not their original brand. So because of that sometimes the original site is cheaper or running a sale that may not be on the other. So its really important. I found this shirt also at Forever 21 (shocking because it is nice material and not flimsy??) but currently it is on sale at unique vintage so that is the ideal place.
Also you will see a ton of me wearing gold hoops, not because of fall style or anything, I am just now discovering that I love them so.
And then I paired it with my usual go to pants that I adore. They are versatile and comfy and I love them.
Well until next time,
Dress, Similar Shoes, Hair Scarf
This post is brought to you by the Outback parking lot, I am alive because of Outback and their cheese fries.
Okay so I bought this dress from unique vintage as a nice summer dress for long days outside. Terrible idea. Beautiful dress but it is not a flowy beach lightweight dress. It is very heavy material so it makes a good August/September dress. Also if your a small, it is on sale!
Also I have absolutely been obsessed with pom pom earrings lately. I have a very specific idea of what I want them to look like and I just could not find it. So I started making my own pom pom earrings. But then randomly yesterday I found exactly what I was looking for at Charming Charlie’s. It is not on their website currently but the two stores I have been to have a ton so it is worth checking it out. The ones I made should be making a blog appearance soon! But anything pom pom is amazing.
And then I have my very beautiful chiffon scarf. I usually start the day by wearing it around my neck and then change it to a hair scarf halfway through my day.
Until Next Time,
So for the last couple of weeks I have been spending my time studying history in medieval Siena. It is a wonderful city. But I Have no time to fashion blog. Most days are spent sweating it out in some building built in the 600s. I can not use straighteners. Electricity is hard to come by. It is amazing. If anyone would like a historical rant about how much fun I am having to be posted and to show off all the beautiful sits let me know and I will!
Europe is wonderful for fashion. Everything is mustard yellow and ruffles and platform shoes. I believe Zara is also in america but it is everywhere in Italy. Zara is an amazing store because they take a normal dress and then just add stuff to it: ruffles, patches, patterns, just fun stuff. I love it.
This is my absolute favorite dress. I have worn it a million times since I got it a month ago. It is all my favorite tins: ruffles, gingham, and off the shoulder.
And then I paired it with Stila lipstick, which is not my favorite. It wore off within an hour.
But anyway today is the 4th of July. So I get to have a small celebration in Italy. No matter were I am in the world I will forever be an American historian. So here is my first red dress ever.
Here are my favorite 4th of July quotes. It is the best holiday of the year.
Until next time,
I have not actually managed to properly blog in so long, with finals and all. But I have finally been able to leave the house and go downtown. It is very nice to be able to dress up and hang out and go to some awesome brunch places.

I plan to spend most of this summer focusing on traveling and my school work. So blogging will be few and far between. But in the fall I plan to get a tripod and focus more on blogging. But this summer blogging will be on the go! I am living in gingham this summer. I secretly hate it because like all my outfits look the exact same. But if looking like a picnic blanket isn’t a summer look, I do not know what is. I get most of my latest clothes from New York & Company. Because I am trying to budget and they have expensive clothes that they put on sale a lot. NY&C makes clothes that make me feel like a successful business owner instead of a waitress struggling in college. But the dress is currently on sale! And then on top of the NY&C sends coupons in emails and so you can get even more of a discount. Which is awesome and you don’t even have to shop all online. It is the best store ever basically. Especially the Eva Mendes Collection. So check it out, it will change your life. Worn with this remarkable dress is my standard Kat Von D lipstick and very rare straightened hair.
Until next time,
