This dress is super cute but on my budget I can’t justify spending $155 on this dress when I can buy 3 other ModCloth dresses for that price. But again super cute and unique!!!

Biking to the farmer's market to meet the girls
It has been so nice out lately in San Diego it makes me wanna buy a pastel beach cruiser and bike all around town. Where better to go if you are being “green” then to the farmers market!!
I’ve been searching around the internet for cute “up-dos” for the summer. It gets so hot and my hair is very long, past the middle of my back. If anyone knows any good hair styles please share!! : )

May I Have Every Dance
I just found this dress on ModCloth. It is gorgeous!!! If they had it in my size it would be on its way to my house right now. I have the wedges shown above in tan with white polka dots. They are really comfortable and every time I wear them I get compliments. I am thinking about getting them in pink. They are from Forever 21 and really reasonably priced. Again …pastels make me happy!!! Have a good night everyone!! 

Rain in Paris

Rain in Paris
This set started with the dress, from ModCloth of course : P. I saw it and instantly thought about my longing to visit Paris. The picture of the Eiffel Tower in the rain puddle is absolutely amazing. I mostly stick to bright colors but my closet has some black in it. I wear it on those days where it is cloudy or raining and you feel like you wanna cuddle up inside with some hot coco or walk around Europe taking pics in the rain of the amazing architecture. haha
Is there a place that you want to one day visit?
Update!!: So I couldn’t help myself I had to have the Gathering of Gals Dress in my previous post. So it is on its way to my house!!! I am super excited. http://www.polyvore.com/gathering_gals/set?.embedder=2536499&.svc=wordpress&id=70240055. I am slacking on my outfit posts. It is just so easy to use Polyvore though. You don’t have to have good lighting. You can do it anytime of the day and you have an unlimited wardrobe….every girls dream!!

Gathering of Gals

Gathering of Gals
The title of the post is the name of a dress I have my eye on from Modcloth. I just found it today it went straight to my wishlist and it might slowly make its way to my cart. lol I am having a  get together with all my girls around Valentines day and this dress would be perfect for the occasion. This set makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I love love love pastels!!! This makes me wanna paint everything in my room mint, sky blue, light pink, and gum drop purple!!
That reminds me. I have a DIY post I am really wanting to do with some cute frames I got from the thrift store. I bought some gum drop purple spray paint for the frame.  It will be exciting. Maybe I should make my new years resolution to turn my room into a pastel palace throughout the year. hahaha I have to include my daughters room as well or she will start sleeping in mine.

Flapper Girl

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Everyone goes around and dresses however they want. They let loose and express themselves. I enjoy expressing myself everyday with my clothing and accessory choices but a lot of people feel like they can’t or its unacceptable. To set the mood for my Flash Back Friday!!! Or Maybe I should call it Flapper Friday haha. I figured I would post a pic of my Flapper costume from Halloween last year and I also wanted to show Adeline my awesome headpiece.

I wore a short curly blonde wig with long long pearls and a red dress with detailed beading.

 

UPDATE!!!

So I just finished my 1920’s set and I was like okay gotta get back to reading stop distracting yourself like a cat with shiny objects. So I am just about to hit the books when I think……hey I wonder if My ModCloth dress is going to be here soon. So I get on the tracking website and it says it is at the post office near my house. I then flashback to seeing the mail truck and realize OMG is it here? So i run outside and look on my porch…no box so I run through the rain to my mailbox and all there are is letters. : (  As I am walking back into my house what do I see ……

Inspired by Modcloths’  Twitter post for items from the 1920’s. I figured I would make up an outfit of my own to keep me busy on this rainy San Diego afternoon. I am also distracting myself from studying but I always have time for clothes ; ).

I am going to try out that hairstyle tomorrow it is super cute. Wish me Luck!!
