Sea of Blue

30April12(1)EDIT 30April12(2)EDIT 30April12(3)EDIT 30April12(4)EDIT 30April12(5)EDIT

Dress: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's
Tights: Street Vendor in Spain
Heels & Earrings: Vera Wang for Kohl's
Bracelet: GAP

I wore this outfit to give my final 10 minute presentation in my presentational speaking class (COMM 375 for you Ball Staters).  I spoke about fashion, inspiration, and how to create new, innovative ideas.  Even though my presentation wasn't perfect, I felt pretty unstoppable in this.  We could wear whatever we wanted and it was interesting to see what each of my classmates chose - our personalities were truly reflected in how we dressed ourselves.  (Weird side note - over half the class was wearing blue).

I'm SO happy all of my classes are coming to a close (this semester has been tough) but I gotta stick it out for a few more days of finals.  Wish me luck!

2 Become 1

25April12(1)EDIT 25April12(2)EDIT 25April12(3)EDIT 25April12(4)EDIT

Dress: JC Penney
Long Sleeved T: ModCloth
Sandals: Old Navy
Earrings: Von Maur

I love the soft, breezy feel of this hi/lo dress.  The cut is SO on trend right now, + the knit fabric makes for a perfect blend of casual elegance.

It feels like forever since I've last blogged, but life and school have been crazy this past week!  I'm almost done with all my projects and papers for my JUNIOR year of college.  I can't believe how fast the time has flown, and the ending of this school year is a little bittersweet.  The good news is, though, that I have big plans for this summer!  I can't wait for what's coming!

Apparently my affinity for polka dots has really taken ahold of me this week.  They're just so adorable, right?

Nick snapped this last picture as we were talking inside and this is exactly how it turned out.  I haven't edited it at all, and I love it!  Sometimes mistakes can be so beautiful.

Break It On Down For The Remix


Top: maurices
Sweater: Forever 21
Shorts: GAP
Flats: Payless
Sunglasses: Rayban "Clubmaster"

Guys!  I mistakenly figured out how to make my photos huge!  What a breakthrough.
Speaking of photos, what editing software does everyone use?  I only have iPhoto, and I'm thinking of investing in something else.  Any suggestions?  

Also, I wanted to post a little remix of the top I wore yesterday.  Here it is with some bright colors.  VoilĂ !

Top: maurices
Jeans: Lucky Brand
Flats: Payless
Necklace: Tiffany & Co
Bracelets: Gifts

I love, love, love this shirt as well as the simplicity of this outfit.  You can never go wrong with black and white, and its perfect for a groggy, rainy Monday!  Also, polka dots always make me smile.

The large bow on the neckline of this shirt reminds me a little of a librarian - my dream job when I was young.  (I also wanted to become an ice cream taster.) It would seem that I was destined for this particular career, as I played Marian the Librarian in my elementary school production of The Music Man, and Librarian has been listed as the ideal career for me on EVERY personality test I've taken.

I'm not headed in that direction right now, but I still have a passion for literature.  The most recent book I read was an unusual story called  The Dogs of Babel. (**clicking on this link WILL result in a spoiler!**)  It was given to me this Christmas by one of my quirky aunts, who picked it out for me at Goodwill.  I was surprised at how much I liked it, even thought it was rather depressing, and I highly encourage you to check it out.

Next, I'm reading Toujours Provence.  Have any of you read this?  What do you think?  Better yet, any recommendations for me?

Here's to the start of a fantastic week!

I dressed up today for my induction ceremony into Alpha Mu Gamma, a nationally recognized foreign language honors society!  I am officially a lifetime member and I even get to wear special cords at graduation.  I am excited and proud to represent all languages, but especially my minors Spanish and French. 

Tonight, Ball State is hosting our very own Red Bull Chariot Race, and Nick will literally be pulling my girlfriend Renee in a homemade chariot!  This should be a fantastic, super entertaining event, and I cannot wait to see how it all unfolds.

How fabulous are these shoes?  I LOVE them!  Even though I didn't wear them all day around campus, I couldn't wait to put them on for these pictures! (I wore these sandals instead.)  Also, I couldn't resist pairing them with these adorable floral socks I picked up when I was in Durango.

I have a few fun events planned for this weekend and I can't wait to get them started.  TGIF, even if it is the 13th!

I love how crisp this white denim jacket looks!  Its perfect for layering in this transition to summer.  Navy blue + white is one of my favorite color combinations - it reminds me of the lake!  I can't wait to (hopefully) spend some weekends there this summer soaking up the sun.

Also, check out this cute link to navy blue + white nautical nails.

I have some incredibly exciting news - after months of searching, resumes, and interviews, I have finally found the perfect internship!  I will be  interning at maurices in Noblesville as a store manager, a position which I am honored and thrilled to receive.  maurices is a wonderful company (check out their community involvement here)  and I cannot wait to become part of the family!

P.S.  How ironic is it that I wore my new skirt from maurices today?  Maybe it should be my good luck charm!

Today I took a leaf out of Nick's book of fashion and wore his favorite color combo - red, white, and blue.  I'm actually surprised by how much I like this; normally the only time I wear these three colors is for the 4th of July!  I think the neutrals soften the look a bit - so I don't look like a walking flag, but what do you think?

Have a marvelous Monday!
