2013 Summer Hats…


I have been reading A LOT about sun protection lately and honestly, I find myself more lost now than ever. Apparently,  it’s not as easy to keep your skin protected as I thought it was.  In the past, my mom would just go to the drug store, grab the first thing that said the word “Sunscreen” on it and hope that it had at least an hour of water resistance! So, naturally, this is how I went about shopping for myself as an adult. I mean, sunscreen is sunscreen, right…..

Weekend Wardrobe


It’s that time of the week again!  The time where I can get dressed up and go out for a night on the town and hopefully pop out a new outfit I haven’t tried before! I mean, isn’t that what we all love about the weekends?  Hanging out with your love and friends over drinks and good food, all gussied up looking stylish and confident, talking about your week and sharing laughs.  Finally breaking free of your work week, of all your required garb and schedules and being yourself with people you love being around.  It’s almost like a therapeutic regime that is essential to your weekend happiness.  Actually, just your happiness in general.  You have two days to play.  What are you going to do with them? Me, I’m going out. And I’m going out in this:

What am I wearing you ask?  Well, let me tell you!  The polkdot grey tunic that I am wearing (which by the way I love period because it has what ladies? POLKADOTS!) I picked up from Francesca’s for only $30 (which is amazing to me).  I’m sorry, but I just have to say that I love Francesca’s! Such amazing and stylish clothing with the added bonus of affordable prices! Anywho, I also love this top because it is super light and airy which makes it ridiculously comfy.  It feels like you’re not even wearing anything! And for someone like me who doesn’t like to wear things that are to tight, this dress is perfect.  It has a nice cut to it so even though it is drapey on your body it doesn’t make you look heavy. The other added bonus to this fabulous dress/tunic? POCKETS!!!  How do you not love something with pockets?

That awesome jacket you saw? It’s an upcycled vintage men’s jacket tailored for the ladies.  It’s actually an old Perry Ellis jacket I believe and the back flap was inserted and bordered with striped fabric by hand.  This is probably my favorite piece! I am totally in love with it and during the fall I pair it with anything I can.  I also adore the mismatched vintage buttons in the front and the inside pocket that I can so conveniently put my cell phone!  Since I hate carrying a purse half the time, these inside pockets defiantly come in handy!

Another favorite piece of mine? My awesome vintage Fedora that I picked up at some random vintage hole in the wall. I actually think it is a man’s hat, but I don’t care, it’s stupid cute and it fits my head! Correction, it fits if I wear my hair how it is pictured, otherwise it falls off my head! My boyfriend is constantly stealing it from me and tells all my friends it’s his! Always trying to take the glory!
