'Twas 97º...

... and I'm finally getting back on track with posting outfits!

This outfit was quite perfect in the fact that I could take off the cardigan when it got too hot or throw it back on if class got too chilly.

No shoes are pictured here, but I just went with classy flats (white, course) && PLEASE excuse my promiscuous shoulder flash; no idea what happened there..

+ in love with raw crystal.

Now that fall's approaching (which is a lie, it's still bloody hot but the date is right), I realize that I need a blazer.

I used to just borrow my sister's, but since she's officially moved, my closet has minimized! And as we all know, a blazer is the absolute puurrrfect staple item for bringing 
1) any outfit together 
2) transitioning any spring clothes

Here are a few pieces I would just, I just, dangit I just need. The cheapest ones are from Forever 21, but even then.. any alternatives?

1. Topshop - $130.00
2. French Connection - $142.00 (On Sale)
3. Gap - $88.00
4&5. Forever 21 - $27.80

Feeling P(r)eppy

Every school year I tell myself, "I will be fashionable everyday!"

Later, "Okay, all-out comfy once or twice a week."

Then, the ultimate, "Did I wear my Nikes yesterday? I'll just throw on this hoodie and some Adidas sweats. Nice."


So far I've been doing well, but I already cannot wait for autumn! As for now, it's been a very preppy time for me. Hopefully I'll post my outfits soon, but here's what I drool over reeeally need.

May I just be a Hilfiger too? PLEASE?

Everyday Shoes

I love my heels, wedges and boots. But for everyday walking I prefer the following:

I know podiatrists and some bloggers abhor flip-flops 'cause they give your feet no support or protection. But personally, for quick trips to the laundry room or anywhere with less than 10 mins. of walking, I love the quick convenience of them!

However, when the weather gets colder. I will trade all the flip-flops for boots and more tennis shoes!

Style Icon

My #1 Style Icon and Role Model is:


Audrey is classy and believed in community service! Her style is classic and wearable for all women. Her advice is also for every generation.

"My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses.”

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I'm possible’!”

Here We Go Again

I don't think I could apologize enough for really skipping out on my duties here, does sorryxhowevermanysorriesittakes work?

The new school year's approaching with extreme speed and I'm convinced it's war. I really wish I had battle armour as beautiful and chic like those below; it'd definitely help.

Clothes are armour. It's how you fashion it that's crucial.

*No motivation today, I'm really on a time-crunch, but Lord knows I need it! A huge, "healthy" dose next week, pirate promise! (Arrr!)*

The Dish(es)

I love dish-ware! The prints, the material, the glazes! They're fun to shop for and now that I have space for them, valuable kitchen items.

Some of my new dishes!

I love how under different lighting the dishes have a different sheen to them.

Tid-Bit for when shopping for dishes: Always buy an extra set in case of chips or breakage!

In case anyone's wondering, it's a Hello Kitty mouse pad beneath the dish-ware box.

Baltimore Bullet

I've been really slacking, I know, and shame on me for doing so!

But maybe it's time I relaxed and just threw care to the wind? Like, take a vacation or not finish summer readin' for the new  school year...

What am I thinking.

I shall be gone off (to chase my M. Phelps) which unforts means that I won't be able to update the blog! BUMMED. 
So here's some pretty pictures of inspiration for you pretty inspiring lot, as a bribe sorry.

Vogue UK Medals

I'm a bit late on the news but...
this golden editorial, very Olympics-oriented I feel, 
is pure,

p.s. all the dresses are magnifique, but Naomi's is out-of-this-world!

Ooooh how I wish I had this issue!
