Well, This is Awkward.

Monday, July 14, 2014

Oh hello there. Somehow in the past month and a half (nearly) I managed to completely neglect this little space of mine on the interwebz. It was unintentional, but life happened...so what can you do! It's been some good, some bad, and some great things distracting me, but tonight I finally found some time and energy for putting together a blog post. A little update-my hospital job is going great; it totally drains me some days and a 12.5 hour shift sometimes feel like 24 hours, but most days I adore it and the day goes by pretty fast. I've had some heart issues (mainly my whole life) but new issues were recently discovered so I have been dealing with that-kind of scary and lots of stress but luckily in my spare time I have been distracted pretty well! :) As for today's post, I decided to keep it on the shorter side(pun intended haha) and share an outfit that I think is great for summer days that are a bit breezy or even for chilly summer nights. This sweater is very lightweight so it is pretty versatile! Also, I discovered how much I love Loft in the past few months. Almost anything I have bought this summer has came from there!

Outfit details: Sweater: Loft // Shorts: Kohls (Wallflower-last summer) // Bracelets: Express (Wishbone here, can't find the other one!) // Sandals: Loft // Necklace: Forever 21 (very, very old!) //

Have you discovered any new favorite stores this summer? 

Thanks for reading!

A Modern Twist // Outfit Post

Friday, May 30, 2014

Hey loves! Today I am posting one of my favorite "ootd" posts yet! This outfit was just so fun to wear, as well as goof-off and twirl around in! Not too long ago I was contacted by eShakti to do a possible review of one of their items...seeing that many bloggers before me had worked with the online woman's clothing company, I kind of couldn't say no, and I am so glad I didn't! I am taking it upon myself to let you all know a little bit about eShakti, because I am honestly very happy not only with the product itself, but the company as a whole. On their website, you can see that they will customize items according to your height, size and style, which is awesome for those of us that are picky with things like that, or just have a hard time finding clothing to fit perfectly. Their motto is, "eShakti believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best". So true! I don't think customization and good style should be unaffordable or out of someones price range, which is why I am so happy to write a review post. I chose a midi skirt from a link of many options that they gave me to choose from...I couldn't resist this skirt because I knew I could take a modern approach to styling the 50's inspired skirt!

The fit of the skirt really is great. I was kind of worried that it would be too big around my waist, because of often have issues with skirts that lay higher on the hip or waist fitting me correctly. The actual quality of the skirt seems to be VERY nice, and I mean that. I am glad I picked this style of skirt because I think it is a very classic style that I will be able to wear for years, and with the quality of the material, I don't think I will have to worry about it being worn out too soon!

I received the skirt not too long after I ordered it, so I would say I am pretty happy about how fast they are at shipping out products. It's worth taking a look at the many different styles of clothing eShakti has on their website; I was torn between this skirt and a gorgeous blue dress, but ultimately, I couldn't give up the idea of a modern twist on a 50's look!

Details: Skirt: c/o eShakti // Top: Urban Outfitters // Shoes: Forever 21 // Bracelets: pearl (old); arrow--> Altered State //

Call Me "Squints"...Oh, and an Outfit Post.

Hey lurveliesss. I hope your weekend is going amazing right now! I am currently home for a few days, to work as a waitress at my hometown job (and to see family of course!) while I have a few days off work from the hospital. It never ends-always on the go! The weather right now is literally perfect and I wish I could just soak it all up today, but I work tonight at the restaurant sooo...it's you, me, and this blog post right now! Something I have been loving lately is maxi skirts. I mean, they are so easy to wear... and hello! So comfortable. I am all about comfort if you can't tell! I recently put together an outfit that made me pretty happy inside. It wasn't over the top, it was still casual, and most importantly, it allowed me to wear this embellished crop tank that I have! I wasn't really sure what to wear the crop top with, so I just said, "oh hey maxi skirt, I'm putting you to work". So here we are. New blawgy post! P.S: I'm pretty sure my eyes are just squinted little slits in two of these pictures...thanks sun. #iforgotmysunglasses
