Outfit Post: Almost May

I have officially finished my last semester of my junior year! I only have one more semester left and I will be done with school forever! I couldn't be more excited and can't believe college went by that fast. So crazy! Anyways, today was spent going to the gym {ran on the treadmill and had the hardest workout ever}met Jeff and his family for lunch and in a little bit I'm meeting two of my girlies for dinner:) Here is what I am wearing.

vintage shorts, tank Forever 21, vintage/thrifted sweater, heels H&M, Brandy Melville bag, Native Hearts bracelets, vintag ring, Evie J Boutique necklaces, Francesca's earrings, vintage belt, Urban Outfitters sunnies

I got this awesome sweater a couple weeks ago from a new local thrift shop. It was only $5/$6 and it totally reminds me of Free People. I played around with my hair today and tried this boho side braid. If you guys like it, I will try and do a hair tutorial tomorrow:) Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog it means everything.

Outfit Post: Neon Lovin'

There is something about bright colors and light wash cut offs that make me think of summer. I scored this H&M sweater today for $10 and paired it with my DDE Denim shorts, Lemons and Lace headband and Holly Lauren necklace. I love the pop of turquoise with the bright pink! It is such a fun combo!

Outfit Post: Hips and Hair

A couple weeks ago I got in contact with an amazing company Hips and Hair. They have the most unique and awesome shirts around. All of their tees {and tanks} are super soft and vintage-y feeling. You all know my love for graphic tee's so when they sent me this gem it became an instant favorite. I love the quote on it as well "because with all your faults we still find love." Here is how I styled it.

 skirt Goodwill, shirt Hips and Hair, booties Forever 21, bag Brandy Melville, belt thrifted, sunnies Urban Outfitters, necklaces Evie J Boutique, stone ring Native Hearts, Michael Kors watch, wrap bracelet Forever 21, vintage cuff, Nordstrom bracelet, Brandy Melville cuff

If found this skirt at Goodwill a couple weeks ago and immediately fell in love. It has almost like a tribal/animal print on it and buttons going all the way down the front. For some reason I hit the mother-load on vintage skirts lately which I completely don't have a problem with. They are super easy to throw on in the summer and can be dressed up or dressed down like I did here with an awesome Hips and Hair tee. Go check out their site {here} and grab yourself a tee today!

The Last Dance

Today was my brother's senior prom and I had to post some photos. I did Courtney's {my brother's date/girlfriend} hair for the dance and lets just say I am obsessed. It turned out perfectly and the fresh little roses and babies breath knocked it out of the park. LOVE!

Outfit Post: Thrifted Beauty

A couple weeks ago when I went thrift shopping I found this amazing lace dress from Goodwill. It was in the "nicer clothing" section so it was a tad expensive for Goodwill {$24}, but I had been looking for a lace dress that was unique and this was it! I paired it with the most gorgeous necklace from the beautiful Holly Lauren. You guys can check out all of her hand-crafted pieces {here}.

I am surprised that it isn't showing in these pictures...but I am sunburned beyond belief. Lay out for one hour and lets just say I turned into a tomatoe. Oops! Hey, I protected my face though:) Anyways, I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Outfit Post: Boho Chic

Last night was spent going to sushi with the girls and going country dancing after! It was so much fun:) Then today when I woke up, it was just one of those days where I felt like being comfy! My Junky Trunk shirt on repeat and some vintage cut offs did the trick. The amazing Evie J Boutique sent me the cutest goodies last week and I wanted to wear a few today. The fishbone earrings I'm wearing are seriously my favorite. Also the adorable leopard scarf is perfect for Spring and Summer in AZ because it is so light weight! I love it!
