Pray tell, Julia Child, what's in Shepherd's Pie?
Um... shepherds? Sheep? Pie?

I'm not usually one that wears too much color, more because of the practicality of clothes, neutrals are just easier to match and can be worn much more often, but the colorblocking trend is huge for spring/summer and I absolutely love it. I've slowly been incorporating bright affordable pieces into my wardrobe. This outfit would definitely be edited a little for wearing out in public.. but for you guys I just decided to wear the colors of the rainbow :)

I love the sheerness of this skirt and just the way it moves and photographs is just beautiful. I just need to find more opportunities to wear this..

He's having some work done on his Mercedes. Or his... kidneys... I wasn't really paying attention.

Sorry for the lack of updates.. it was a long weekend. Won my first beach volleyball tournament ever on Saturday, definitely can be happy that I've won once in my life (although I came out of it looking like a lobster.. but that was my own fault.. note to self, PUT ON SUNSCREEN). My teammate had a pre-nationals bash to get ready for next weekend when we all fly out to Dallas for some more volleyball fun. Now I am just tired and attempting to get through a blah Monday and a week full of more rain. I'm told it's 86 degrees in Dallas on Friday.

Loving cut outs this spring/summer. I've got the short version of it too, which will be reserved for a crazy night out of drunken debauchery. This dress + breezy night on the boardwalk + drinks and close friends = perfection.

Sorry, fruit, you're out of the loop.

Leftover photos from when the weather was actually nice out. Pet peeve about myself.. when I wear items that are off the shoulder, since I don't have much of a bust and wide shoulders, the tendency seems to be that tops just fall off past my shoulders. I've noticed this trend with a bunch of my tops and haven't figured out a solution. Got any ideas?

Did I just scream like a woman?
Don't flatter yourself. You scream like a girl.

I bought two of this dress from Nasty Gal, one in white and one in black. I find that the black makes me look a little witchy so I've listed it on ebay, but here are some shots of it anyway. I ended up getting another dress that looks very similar from LF that actually has a lining underneath (the Nasty Gal one does not, I have another dress underneath so it's not completely sheer!).

You can find the listing in a link on the right side of the page, it brings you to all the items I am currently selling.

Oh, I don't drive. I keep taking the test over and over again, but I'm all, "This is hard!"

Got a brand new leather waist belt from theoutnet.com for about $20 which was pretty awesome. Wore this as a casual work outfit, I love this maxi dress because it's comfortable and actually the right length (which is hard to find for short people). Only until later in the day did my co-workers say "I can see your pink underwear" while I was standing by the window in direct sunlight.

Isn't there someone else who is a little more... experienced? Someone who didn't drive in... on a Big Wheel?

I don't think twice about being an only child.. but more than once I've heard that we supposedly come out spoiled and after a conversation last night.. apparently we come out socially awkward. Thank goodness my friends have confirmed that I am neither of these, though socially awkwardness seems to be something I'm good at (or maybe it's just shyness).

On a side note, I've been on a maxi skirt kick lately, I seriously adore them, especially the semi sheer ones.

My brain is frazzled today, I'll finish off with this quote from Taylor Swift that I read and really liked:

“Things change so quickly. I have no idea who’s going to be a recurring character and who’s just a guest star for one episode. Love is fascinating. Wishing for it, pining for it, and the anger that comes when you lose it. I used to think that I could figure out some pattern to love, like if you don’t text a guy back for a half hour, he’ll like you more. But there is no pattern. Absolutely nothing is predictable in love or in life.”
