Summer Style

I am constantly told that I'm the quintessential girl next door. Not that there is anything wrong with being identified as "sweet" but it can start to feel a little stifling. Then again, when it comes to my summer style, I do have a penchant for easy sundresses and high ponytails, so maybe I can see where everyone is coming from...

Friday Favorites: Think Pink!

I've always been a girl who thinks, "Pink!" the second someone asks me my favorite color. But I almost always respond, "Green." To be fair, I love both colors equally but somewhere along the way pink got a reputation for being youthful, too girlie and, as an adult, somewhat embarrassing.

Maybe it's because I'm inching ever closer to thirty but I'm no longer ashamed of my rosy outlook. After all, pinks are flattering on every skin tone and, according to some psychologists, boost your mood and reduce anxiety. And whoever decided that there was something wrong with being girlie anyway?

When it comes to dresses, I'm firmly on the mini team. Usually. I also haven't attempted any form of crop top since the 9th grade. So I was a little dubious when the woman at Intermix suggested I try a belly baring maxi dress from A.L.C. But I'm turning 29 tomorrow so I think it's about time to take some fashion risks!

I tried it on, realized it had a mini under the impossibly high slit, and I immediately fell in love. It shows off my legs, gives a glimpse of skin and covers all of my trouble spots! Can a dress be boho and sophisticated at the same time? I'm planning on wearing this maxi dress every single day!

How To Wear A Denim Shirt Dress

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night, having dreamed of some elusive item that you suddenly HAVE to have? That can't just be me, right? 

Um...anyway, the other night I dreamt of one particular piece of clothing that I have always hated: the denim dress. But not just any tacky denim dress; It was a shirt dress, almost a wrap really, in a worn blue with rolled up sleeves, hitting just above the knee. I am now on a mission to find this dream dress. But once I find it, how do I wear this denim shirt dress without looking like a dowdy country bumpkin?
