why hello again,

yep…I have been slacking and I am sorry. I hope you all had a fantastic Fourth of July. I did, we went home for a long weekend in the country. Here I am swinging on my husband’s little sister’s tree swing!photo-12

Things are a-changing, I don’t know about you, but they are for me! I have been doing so much lately, experiencing so much, and I am kind of at a crossroad in my life. I recently left my job of visual merchandising for the huge company I worked for a little less than a year because something in my heart has changed. I love fashion and everything related to it, but I do not want it as my career at the moment. My boss was completely understanding and told me that I was experiencing a quarter life crisis and I guess I am. But I am hoping that by not using my creative juices during the day merchandising, I will be able to produce the most creative and amazing fashion posts for you all in my off time. I am on the job hunt though as we speak, and it is no fun.

I DO have a confession to make though, I feel that I have committed a fashion felony yesterday. I went to the grocery store…in workout clothes. I knowwwwww, I was so grossed out when I realized it upon leaving the house. BUT, I did actually workout after shopping so at least I didn’t appear as an exercise poser. I do feel pretty guilty about doing it though, because I so strongly disagree with workout clothes in public, outside of physical activity. Please cut me some slack, I am going through a life change, haha.

Moving along to what I actually need to tell you guys. I don’t know if you have seen, but I am in love with this trend of slip dresses.

It’s kind of a 90’s thing, but Whitney Port wrote about it and Free People has a really pretty one too. I recently purchased my own at Forever 21 and I have to share it with you. A lady actually stopped me in public, begging me to tell her where my dress was from, but here you go.

You can’t go wrong with a floppy straw hat either. I think this hat actually helped me take some great shots because I felt so chic! hahah I just hope no one saw me voguing on my balcony though.

Every outfit looks better with jewelry, and lots of it.
