Hello there! First, I wanted to say thanks to all of you who already entered my giveaway! If you haven't yet, you can enter until Saturday and try to win a super cute bag! Anyway, this is what I wore yesterday. We had another wonderfully warm day and I really just wanted to wear something breezy and simple. I forgot how simply I like to dress when the weather gets warm! It's weird to not have to layer up anymore - well, as long as this warm weather lasts. I wore this outfit to my poetry workshop, which was quite a class. My teacher told us that our assignment for next week was to write "opposite poems" - poems that go against the work we've been doing all year. FUN. No, not fun. Not fun at all. We all went around in a circle and told each other what to do or not do for our opposite poems. I was told to write a poem in the voice of a gangster, in hip hop format, with a one word title. Yeah. I would say I got the most difficult assignment (I mostly think the people in my class thought it would be fun/silly to see quiet, ol' me write a gangster rap-esque poem) but the poor boy next to me has to write a sonnet about a 52 year old women going through menopause. I've already got a few ideas brewing in my mind, and I'm planning to make it the most "me" gangster poem I can. Is that cheating? Oh well!

Top: Macy's
Skirt: Forever 21
Belt: Salvation Army
Sandals: Steve Madden




AND a silly/terrifying picture with my most favorite photographer


This one's going on the Christmas card, methinks!

Until tomorrow,


  1. That picture is so so funny :) definitely made me smile. And giggle too. Love the skirt. There's just something so casual and down to earth about floral skirts and white shirts. Can't really go wrong with that :)

  2. Haha, that assignment is pretty hilarious! I hope you share the poem with us!

    Dressing simpler in the spring and summer time is so lovely, isn't? You look great!

  3. wait... you mean.. you're not actually a gangster? But.... wow. I thought you were pretty G. =(

    hahah you have to post your poem here because I'm sure everyone is dying to hear your hood poem. This outfit is super pretty. I love the top and floral skirt. And the last picture is so cute!! =)

  4. Cute outfit:)
    Good luck with your gangster rap I'm sure it will be just lovely:) haha

  5. He's wearing an Inigo Montoya badge! Haha. And I vote that you publish the gansta poem here, with an appropriately styled gangsta outfit!

    Aaaand... I love that top. I'm such a sucker for eyelet!

  6. Hehe cute!! You two are adorable:)
    I have been looking all over for an eyelet top to go with a pair of shorts I just bought. Yours is completely perfect! Lovely darling. xx Marisa

  7. hahaha you two are hilarious. i like his inigo montoya badge!! this outfit is super cute tho.. I love your sandals! Please post your gansta poem. PLEASE!

  8. The poem you have to write sounds silly. Good luck! I like your floral skirt and the eyelet pattern on your shirt! I want to start getting a few skinny belts to add some pizzaz to my skirts! Also... tiny detail but I wear a rubberband "bracelet" all the time!

  9. oh my gosh, you have the real Steve madden sandals! love them. i rock the knock offs from wal mart. lame, i know. but they were 5 bucks so what are you gonna do? ;)

  10. That poetry assignment sounds kind of sadistic! I can see how it would be useful, though, and I bet reading everyone's opposite poems will be fun. I love outfits that are pretty and comfortable...nothing like a soft, cool blouse or top with some delicate detail!

  11. the last picture made me laugh! you guys are cute! and i love the simplicity of the outfit. good luck with the hip hop! i'm sure you'll do great!

  12. First of all you two are so cute. You will have to share your gangster poem with us. The project sounds challenging, and kind of fun.
