that 70's feeling

Don't you love when you come across a vintage find and it makes you feel some sort of accomplishment? That's how I felt when I found this Dooney & Burke for only $12! I was very proud of myself. And, it matches these pants that I've been dying to wear. They're perfect for summer, with a light chiffon material. Luckily, these come with shorts attached on the inside, leaving room for a nice breeze on your legs to keep you cool in the heat.

I've come across a new brand love as well; Blu Pepper. I discovered this shirt at none other than TJMaxx (the treasure chest of all magnificent, well-priced finds). Of course, anything white and lacy belongs in my closet. I added some short wedges and feather earrings, and I was ready for my lunch date..and then it rained. (Yay weather!)

Oddly, I sometimes feel nostalgia for decades I've never lived in. I felt like I threw myself back to the modern 70's, and I enjoyed every minute of it. 
Happy Friday! xx

bright eyes

Ahh, the first post of Summer and it feels so good! I can't wait to finally have time to dedicate to the blog and enjoy doing what I do.

When taking photos, everyone is always searching for the best lighting. Sometimes, it is created in a studio but when it's o'natural, it's almost awkwardly exciting. This rustic looking fence created the perfect white backdrop and complimented my bright lips and metallic shades. It's hidden spots like these that have a blogger feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, and on the outside because this heat is not fun. I guess that's the struggle of loving black and living in Florida.

I spy with my little eye (or bug eyes) my blogging buddy Jomy!

I have to admit,  I like to sit on my computer for hours at a time and go on Tumblr and type in "Coachella" and live vicariously through all the pictures. I didn't even go and I can just feel how absolutely amazing it was. So much so, I've started a Coachella fund (donations are greatly appreciated) and already started planning my outfits (too soon?). 

Summer time is approaching, the semester is almost over, and I'm ready to be to let go of all this stress and enjoy it. I'm diggin' this boho vibe because of how free it makes you feel. I get to channel my inner flower child, and especially in a place where the heat is almost unbearable, there's no better time for light, flowy outfits. 

To add to my many obsessions, I decided Vanessa Hudgens was one of my top celebrity girl crushes. I like to refer to her as the "queen of Coachella", but her style is perfection regardless. With this vibrant printed hankerchief dress, I paired it with a black lacy bralette, short black boots to add a little edge, and my favorite hat, which also seemed to be a staple piece of everyone's outfits at Coachella as well. Okay okay, you may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one. (Beatles' lyrics always come in handy for a dramatic moment). 

So, here's my Vanessa Hudgens wanna-be, Coachella look for less! 
   Oh, and Happy Earth Day!

first day

Just wanted to say a quick Happy 1st Day of Spring! Here's my take on the perfect outfit that welcomes this next season with opens arms and a smile from ear to ear; a flowy dress and a green juice in hand. Cheers!
