Feathers and Monroe

This particular outfit is not something I would usually put together. I would much rather pair the shorts with a nice button down and the top with a pair of rolled jeans. However, today I thought I would go for it. I feel as if pairing my pac-sun cheetah top with the professional looking shorts made it more playful and fun. Also, do not get me started on the Betsey Johnson clutch. In the words of Rachel Zoe, "it is to die." I feel if you put the face of Marilyn Monroe on anything, it makes it a million times better. 

 I have recently become obsessed with the little pond/lake in my backyard. I think it is so picturesque and a perfect place for photo shoot. 

outfit info:
top: pac-sun
shorts: no idea

Independence Day!

     There is something truly magical about the Fourth of July. It happens to be one of my favorite holidays. I mean how could you possibly beat picnicking, fireworks, and sparklers? Those are the three simple components of making a fantastic Independence Day.
     For my family, we always get everyone together, have a big feast, and set fireworks off in our own backyard. I know this sounds very midwestern of me, but I would not change it for anything.

As this holiday came around, I was wondering what would be the perfect outfit to wear to the family festivities. I soon decided on my go to sundress that I got from Nordstroms about five years ago. The floral pattern has the perfect country feel, that was wonderful for running around with my family.

Summer Uniform

So this has probably been one of the hottest summers Ohio has seen in a while! There is nothing but blue skies and sunshine everyday! In order to stay comfortable in the obnoxious heat, (I much prefer the cool breezes of spring and fall) I have come up with the perfect "summer uniform."

I have been obsessively buying high waisted shorts. They are so comfortable, and you can wear them with anything! So that my number one must have this summer!
Next is any pair of TOMS! They are possibly the most comfortable shoes in the world!!! TOMS are my number 1 go to for comfy shoes!
Lastly is a good headband. I got a ton like the ones in these photos in Thailand. They are a perfect add to any outfit!
These are all the things to make a perfect casual summer outfit! I hope this post didn't jinx the good weather!
