Minimalist Weekend Outfit


This look is so 90s minimalist grunge to me (except for the lipstick-- way too bright for the 90s). The whole thing takes me back to my rainbow choker-wearking days-- it was 1998 and I was 8 years old, but I was a dark soul. I wore dark blue nail polish and wanted to dress like Debbie from The Wild Thornberrys someday (hands down, best 90s cartoon show ever!).

Flowy and Fun

Hello, all!

I thought my computer had died once and for all, but I managed to resurrect it somehow after a three week coma. So here I am today sharing this super fun number from a sunny August day!

August Recap + Some Summertime Sadness

Miami Swim Outfits

My monthly recaps keep getting more and more morose. Call it summertime sadness or something, or maybe depression. No, I'll call it "existential panic." I like that better. Or a "quarter-life crisis" (this is a legit thing, you know). Needless to say, when I read this opinion piece in the New York Times a few days ago, about a man's summer that never was, I knew I had to reference it in this post. Because that is the way I feel every month. A little let down that I didn't get to do it all. 

My job is still crazy, my boyfriend's job is taking him away for weeks at a time, and I'm not really getting out much. You'd think I'd be able to blog more in that downtime, but really any time I have is devoted to either sleep or admin/paperwork stuff for work. And it's been this way for months.

But hey, it's September, and school has started for the kiddos, so maybe that'll mean a more stable work schedule for me (I provide therapy for kids in their schools and homes). Also, I have several outfits waiting to be posted, like these black and white ones above that I had planned to share in August-- stay tuned for those and more this month. All in all, I felt quite stressed and sad last month, but there were also many moments of great fun, love, and laughter over the course of two family birthdays and one wedding. It was the first time a close friend of mine was married, and I cried so many happy tears that night. See more happy August memories from my Instagram below:


Oh, and Fear the Walking Dead started! Seriously so excited for that show, you guys. It's very helpful for TWD withdrawals. Looking forward to more of that in September! My parents are also redoing their kitchen this month, and I am finally going to buy a bike for health and leisure purposes. Check out this bike board I've been curating over the past year or two:

So yeah, lots to look forward to. I do not want to be woken up when September ends. Lol.
Hope you had a great August, and wishing you all a great September!

Easy Weekend Outfit + Candy Couture Shop Giveaway


I swear, the rest of my clothes must be so jealous of these pants and cardigan. I wear the cardigan a few times a week for work, and the jeans are easily my single most used item on the weekends. It's just so easy, you know? I dressed up the look a little bit with one of my prettiest summer heels that I've had forever, plus my new Candy Couture Shop necklaces. This shop is one of my favorites right now, so I was thrilled when Gina contacted me to send over some of her new stuff, like the versatile crystal necklace and beautiful blue druzy below.
