KC Haul

Ohh boy, this is long overdue, but I finally have everything sorted. Including the receipts (which I conveniently threw into one bag and plan to tackle in a few with some tissues and ice-cream).

As most pictures end up, the colors on some items are off. However do take my word on them!

Top Row (left to right): Victoria's Secret PJs, Gap Jeans, American Eagle Midi shorts, Abercrombie&Fitch Navy shorts, Polo Ralph Lauren shirt, Gap shorts

Bottom Row: Abercrombie&Fitch plaid sleeping shorts, Victoria's Secret Lace underwear, Old Navy Gingham sleeping shorts, 'Live While We're Young' ONE DIRECTION CONCERT tank, Forever21 dress

The water bottle, dog, and bag came with my Victoria's Secret purchase. The dog's not as useful as the bottle though, haha! I had to get cute pajama stuff though, I'm not comfortable enough to wear holes around the dorm..

The anchor belt is Gap and the black, buttery, 'Made in Italy' belt is thrifted.

Gold Circle Ring (thrifted), American Eagle heart bangle, Sterling Silver cuff (thrifted), Gap Neon Crystal Bracelet

I am completely aware that the size on the shorts is for the world to see, is it so wrong of me? I figured it's no big deal, it's clear I'm no model and I admit, I love food. 

This dress is too cute. I had to show the deep V back! Currently my horizontal stripes collection is growing exponentially. I understand I must stop. I cannot. Man, I need to stop.

1D in KC

I'm We're going to overlook the fact that I spent way too much money and energy on this trip, and instead freak-out about my magical, once-in-a-lifetime experience in Kansas City. For starters, I have bruises all over my legs... which makes no sense since I was only fist-pumping and jumping all over the place (okay so maybe there's a little sense).

Putting my haul off 'til later, since it covers the majority of my queen-size bed (this might be a problem), I wanted to share some shots of what we did and where we went!

The Country Club Plaza, or The Plaza for short, is KC's premiere shopping center. Burberry, American Apparel, H&M, J. Crew, Tiffany & Co., and many many more all reside there in Modern-Tuscan buildings. I was floored!

If anyone knows how to make a display, it's Kate Spade.

This worker looked too cute! She graciously talked about her necklace and favorite items. That dresss~

How siick are this woman's shoes?! I'm smitten. From Aldo Shoes.

If I had $2,294 this Burberry jacket would have left on my back. Sadly, it was blazing hot and my debit card was crying in a corner. The studs, the leather, the zippers, oh my!

Concert gear! For those who aren't Directioners/Fangirls/Obsessed/Insane, the shirts are play on lyrics from different One Direction songs. I'm sportin' the cobalt blue shorts, a small portion of my haul from KC.

I'm still sore from the concert on Friday, so I must go recline and figure out whether or not the whole weekend was real..

One Direction

I didn't choose the fangirl life, the fangirl life chose me.

And woe, the heart-wrenching, money-snatching life it is! I'd much rather have a shoe fetish, instead... okay, so I have both. Tough.

Tomorrow I have the privilege of attending a One Direction concert, AND I'M PRETTY MUCH THE MOST EXCITED LADY AROUND I MEAN LOOK AT THEM I KNOW THEY'RE SO CHARMING (and they're actually around my age, so let me have this)!

Along with their good looks and talent, their styles created a massive craze among us fangirls. While it's not all too original, each boy has his own signature style.

Harry Styles
loves the preppy look. Think Tommy Hilfiger and Burberry. His use of blazers and well tailored clothing is a style I absolutely love.

Signature Piece: Blazer

Louis Tomlinson
is much more playful with his style. His signature outfit is composed of the nautical striped shirt and red pants. Not going to lie, I might have jumped on the bandwagon... It's just so cute.

Signature Piece: Horizontal Stripes

Niall Horan
is the most laid-back boy of the bunch. He loves to sleep and eat, so he's on the right track. Comfort is his number one priority! He loves Supras and high-tops, what a boy.

Signature Piece:
High-top Sneakers

Liam Payne
is >ironically< the most 'All-American' styled Brit. He loves a good plaid, monochrome outfit, and laid-back sneaks. He's able to look put together yet I-just-threw-on-clothes at the same time. Give me that skill.

Signature Piece:
Baseball Tee

Zayn Malik
is the perfect love child of Rock and Skater. Not only because, in this picture, he skateboards but his overall style is so nonchalant cool. He loves OBEY, a snapback, and attitude.

Signature Piece:
Varsity Jacket

'Twas 99º...

On really hot Sundays, the issue arises of how much, or how little, I can get away with wearing to church. For me, it's not as much tradition as I think it is appropriateness. 
Say, going to a black-tie affair, you're not going to show up in jeans and a bikini right?

.. right?

I'm all for breaking free (Zac Efron, High School Musical style of course), but there's a time and place for everything. Or maybe this discussion shall never end. In that case.. 'to each his own'

*the skirt of the moment! Can't stop wearing it ;)

'Twas 88º...

.. and I can already sense a climb in the weather temperatures. I love the movie-like mornings when I can open my blinds, feel the sunshine, and proclaim what a beautiful day it is!

Then promptly realize that sleeves do not work well with humidity.

After my reality check, I reckoned looking cute beat out the heat. And in the end, all worked out seeing as how 'Merica keeps all indoors nice and AC-blasted!

'Twas 79º...

and the weather has lessened! Praise the Lord!
After the massive heat wave aka last week, it's now breezy, not so humid, and still sunny. 
Weather, let me embrace you.

Feeling quite girly with this new circle, slightly pleated skirt. Woe it does not have pockets, but it's still cute and gets me closer to this! Since I ended up running errands after work, boots and a utility jacket were all I needed.
