I'm loving life lately - my internship is incredibly fun and rewarding and its pretty much been consuming all of my time.  So, not much to report here, just a little outfit update!  Speaking of, I keep buying clothes from the store...how do people who work in retail resist the temptation?!

P.S.  Hate strapless bras? Layer a tank or a tee under your strapless item and you're good to go!

I am in love...with a pair of sandals.  Not only do they make you feel like you're walking on perfect cumulus clouds, they are on sale.  They're made by Nike (what!) so they could be styled in a number of ways.  If you're looking for a pair of comfortable, versatile, and waterproof sandals, I suggest these.

Do you guys have any recent finds your crushing on?  I'd love to know!

Maxi's have easily become my new favorite silhouette.  They're breezy and comfy and they look chic - perfect for summer days!  

Nick and I have been experimenting with different camera techniques and I am super proud of the sun flare on the last photo!  I'm lucky he is patient with me and willing to help.  He's the best.  :)  

Happy Father's Day

I can't believe my dad actually agreed to do a photoshoot with me for Father's Day - he must love me quite a lot!  We took these pictures in and around my Aunt Flaim's (my dad's sister) garden shed at the lake.  I love how they turned out.  I was so lucky I was able to visit him.  I don't get to see him much anymore so when I do it's pretty special.      


Even though I love the series of pictures above, these last two pictures truly remind me of who my dad is.  He snapped the picture of the dewey grasses right after our photoshoot (so beautiful) and it's shots like these that I'll treasure forever.  I love you, Dad.

Can I just say how much I adore this dress?  It's absolutely perfect in every way.  I love the bright colors, the print, the fit, the double V...I just feel happy when I wear it.  Plus, I was completely comfortable from my morning coffee until my feet hit the couch in Muncie.  Its been a long day and an even longer week and I can't wait to have the day off tomorrow and relax!

Also, how could anyone have a bad day with a cute little seahorse wrapped around your finger?

My mom came to visit me yesterday!  We spent our time together shopping, dining, and relaxing at a fabulous new hotel.  Today we took a little adventure into downtown Noblesville and we found this fabulous yarn bomb right outside the courthouse.  I've seen art like this on the internet, but this was my first time seeing it in person.  I love it!  What do you guys think?

Sheer All Over

Shirt: Target
Skirt: Forever 21
Flats: Payless
Sunglasses: Ray Ban "Clubmaster"
Earrings: Betsey Johnson

I felt like a ballerina today.  This skirt is perfectly flowy and I love how the sheer layers move in the wind.  This might be my new favorite piece in my closet!  

Also, please excuse my see-through shirt.  (Sorry, mom!)  I'll have to remember to layer a cami underneath it next time...

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is my day before I have two days off (hello,weekend!), so it's like a Friday for all you normal folk out there.  TGIT...right?

Yes, that is a train car in the background of these photos.  You know what makes it better?  The inside of it has been converted into a barber shop!  Nick used to get his hair cut here when he was a little kid...aw!

Since this dress is on the short side, I look a leaf out of my manager's book and decided to layer it with leggins and a simple cardigan.  I was super comfortable all day long and I even fought off the chill of the dreaded air conditioner.

What do you guys wear to work to stay comfortable?  I've gotta get some insoles for my shoes - flats and sandals everyday are killing me!

On another note, my hairdryer conveniently died earlier this week.  So, I bought a Hot Tools ionic 1875 wattage dryer from Ulta and I'm pretty impressed with the results.  I was using a cheap Conair one before and I think the Hot Tools left my hair silkier and smoother.  I would recommend it if you're in the market for a new one.  

Have a great Sunday night everyone!
