Pick A Peach

What I’m Listening to: First by Cold War Kids

I had a very long post (by my standards) written out for this post, it used all kinds of illiteration and adjectives, just the thing to make my old writing 200 teacher very happy. But let’s be real, you don’t want to hear me wax nostalgic about a peach farm you’re never going to visit, so I did us both a favor and scrapped it. The gist of my day was: I went to a U-pick peach farm in rural Arkansas and it was such a beautiful day outside that afterwards I dragged everyone to this little historical site just to hang out and enjoy the day a little more. It was such a fun day, the kind that makes you understand why 2/3rds of all songs on the radio are just based off the concept of summer. (Though arguably I think they should definitely sing some more about peaches, because they were amazing.)

Return of Disco

What I’m Listening to: Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits

I have a love/hate relationship with sequins. 

This has mostly to do with the fact that in my experience they fall off, get bent and after approximately half of one wear the dress doesn’t look the same as when you put it on. (Which is probably my fault for being rough on clothes but whatever). However, against my prior judgements when I saw this dress I knew we were meant to be. I am so glad I did because it is so much fun to wear! It legitimately reflects light like some kind of colorful disco ball, (which I personally view as a plus to any garment). Stay groovy! (I’ll stop now) 

 

Peace (out),

All Laced Up

What I’m Listening to: These Boots are Made for Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra

Aaaand just like that it’s summer. Maybe not according to the stars or the calendar but if you ask me 78 degrees is at least 10 degrees over the spring standard. Anyway, it was the perfect temperature to go downtown (and wear this adorable new top from one of my favorite brands, Reformation). 

(Ps. Fun fact: The bowls and the beads were both imported from Greece) 

Peace,

A Not-So-Mellow Yellow

What I’m Listening to: Paint it Black by The Rolling Stones

Happy Mother’s Day! Although I swear it was January five minutes ago, apparently it’s now almost summer. Not that you’ll hear me complaining; summer is one of my favorite seasons. The main reason? Summer fashion of course! Like this dress, which is one of my new favorite pieces. (Do you hear that? I made this sound like a normal fashion blog for three entire sentences (truly a new record).) And yes, the dress really is as bright as it looks, I love it. (P.S. the pockets are real) Peace + pockets,

5 Things Every Girl Needs For the Christmas Season

What I’m Listening to: Wait for Me by Kings of Leon

Less than a month ’til Christmas Day! With that in mind, you know there’s never a better time to make a list (and yes, maybe check it twice) to make sure you’re ready to have a terrific Christmas this year.

5. A Great Playlist

I don’t just mean Christmas music, (though that’s basically a given). I’m talking about the kind of music you love to get ready to, the kind of music you like to wrap presents and bake Christmas cookies to. A versatile, fun, up-beat playlist that always makes you feel pretty, chic, and maybe even a little bit dangerous.

4. A Killer Dress

Christmas is a time for parties, and whether you are the world’s biggest introvert or the social butterfly to end them all, you should have at least one dress that makes you look fantastic. Every girl has a few styles and colors that suit them best, but don’t be afraid to try something new.

3. A Checklist

I know, I know, nobody likes a checklist. But as one of the few who do, you know it’s my duty to let you know how simple they’ll make your life. (I definitely don’t have an endless supply of color-coded lists that span across multiple devices and notebooks.)

2. A Pretty Lipstick

It doesn’t have to break the bank, though if you are looking to splurge you know I’m going to suggest YSL’s Rouge Volupté Shine. Their colors are perfect for whatever you’re looking for, from darker shades to a super pale pink. For those looking for a less expensive alternative I think that L’Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks are smooth, color-rich options that won’t put a dent in your Christmas shopping budget.

1.  The Christmas Spirit

I bet you guys knew I was gonna get sentimental, but it’s true and you know it. After all, the most important element of Christmas, is Christmas. The excitement, the joy of Kroger selling Sweet Tart candy canes, and of course the sense of a new beginning that’s so integral to the Christian celebration of Christmas.

Peace (on Earth),

Thanksgiving 2016

What I’m Listening To: Sixteen Tons by Johnny Cash

Happy Thanksgiving! This year I made four pies, however I still consider my crowning achievement being predicting Easton Corbin’s presence in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Of course I’m not the only winner today. That prize also goes to my new Dr. Marten mary janes. I am absolutely in love with them. They’re somehow both pretty and rebellious (and they go with almost everything). Today though, I paired them with a jumpsuit and a neutral lip. (And yes, I did make that pie.)

Peace (and Gravy)
