Pale in All Filters

Shirt - Old Navy
Pants - Mossimo
Flats - TOMS
Bag - Merona 
Necklace - made by my super talented sister at yourmomdesigns

Okay. I know, I know. I'm as pale as the white shirt I'm wearing. I need to get out  in the sun so that people don't think I'm cast in the next Stephanie Meyer inspired movie.  

Anyway, today has been looong. I woke up super early to open up the coffee shop at my church and needed a simple outfit I could work in. Capri pants have become one of my favorite wardrobe staples for spring/summer, so of course I chose these because they're perfect when you're looking for a quick and effortless outfit that still looks put together.

What's your favorite wardrobe staple for spring/summer? Let me know in the comments below!

Here's a tip for when you're shopping at Target (which, if you're anything like me, is 1-2 times a week): try and find online returns because they mark those items down like crazy. I got this new skirt, that is super comfy, for $4.56 and I'm the kind of person whose day can be turned completely around by tiny stuff like that, so next time you're there be on the look out. 

Anyway, I hope y'all are having a fabulous day and will have an even more fabulous week!

P.S. Apparently I like holding my hand to my ear in pictures. Did y'all notice? 


Mint to Be

Top - JC Penney
Cardigan - J. Crew (buy something similar here)
Skirt - Forever21(buy it here)
Shoes - TOMS (These are from last year, but check out their new line here)
Watch - Fossil
Necklace - I believe it's vintage, so I'm not exactly sure where it's from

Yesterday I had to go to an advising session at the college I am transferring to and decided I wanted to wear something that looked professional but casual at the same time (since it's not like it was an interview or anything), and this is what I came up with. I love pairing mint and white together, it just seems like one of the the most gorgeous color combinations.

Piece of advice, though, if you're planning on meeting with an adviser or someone else on a campus you don't know like the back of your hand and are directionally-impaired like I am. . . leave super early and have a good idea of where you need to be (meaning look at a map a thousand times) and don't be too proud to ask for help. Also, if you haven't yet, download google maps to your smart phone, if you have one, and keep track of where you're going because let's face it, without it I would not have found the building I needed to be at on time and I dislike hate being late.

Can we just take a minute to talk about how much I love this skirt? It's so comfortable and versatile, it's ridiculous. I need to go back to Target (psh. Where else?) and get like a thousand more. 

I love pairing skirts like this with brightly colored tops or accessories to really make it stand out. How do you like styling versatile skirts like this? Leave me a comment below!

Goodness Knows I Needed Spring

Top - Papaya Clothing
Skirt - Prabal Gurung for Target
Shoes - Steve Madden
Bag - Kenneth Cole Reaction
Watch - Fossil

Thank God for Spring inspired floral patterns and bright colors; I am so in love with them both.

As you can tell from the pictures, though, I am still super-duper ridiculously vampire-esque. I need to hit up the beach ASAP, but until I can I'll just continue wearing bright colors and daydreaming about clear skies and sand beneath my feet.

 I know, I know, it has been forever since I last posted here.
School was kicking my butt and I had to focus on that and some other stuff that has been going on in my life lately. 

But, I am finally done with finals for this semester which means that I will have so much more time on my hands to write and make videos! 

And, I also just made a new blog called Simply This Life. It's a blog about my life and all the cool things that are in it, so please go check it out!

Hope y'all are having a fantastic week! I'll see you in my next post
