I decided to wear more than 1 pattern...

I think the best way to pull off more than 1 pattern is to have a solid, or neutral piece in between to add balance.

DIY: iPhone 4 Case

I wanted to post a while ago pertaining to my dive into college, but if there's one thing that I cannot deal with, it's poor internet. The residents have the worst (not the slowest but the worst) server and service. Even now I'm mooching off the honors dorm wi-fi!

Quick update to what has been my past few days:
meeting new people and never seeing them again
getting lost
trying to get to Target

Amongst all this I found time to give a quick face lift to my iPhone case. My lovely sister got the phone case free from Aeropostale and I loved the metallic, but not so much the phrase..

One of the simplest DIYs EVER, all I did was some careful cutting of a sticker and...


It doesn't completely cover the phrase, but it's a vast improvement in my opinion.

'Twas 82º...

and the weather is soo fine! Sun-bathing, production-promoting (those two might be opposites) kind of weather! It's so lovely and thank goodness for clear skies as my sister returns to university.

I think back and realize I made some sort of promise to dissolve my stripes obsession.

That didn't really work out.

What do you expect me to do? This dress killed me with its back, bow, stripes, AND color. Quadruple whammied - Me.

When Life Hands You Lemons

You wear it on a dress! 

This is my favorite thrifted piece of the summer! 

Do I look sour to you?? Haha, see what I did there!

I tried it on 'cause the lemons reminded me of Stella McCartney's Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection,  and the print is reminiscent of Lilly Pulitzer (sadly I cannot afford either brand at the moment).

Dress: Thrifted (Goodwill); Wedges: Payless (old); Bag: Inherited from Mom; Necklace: Gift; Earrings: Purchased in China; Aviators: Borrowed from Yoshi

'Twas 91º...

and it was so freaking hot why in the world did I even bother putting on clothes?!

Ahh right, because this skirt was too dang cute. I HAD to wear it! Went out with my galpals for a Sunday lunch and ran a few errands before the heat beat us home. Beat as in I felt physically defeated... but thank goodness for the revival from frozen yogurt & ice-cream!

Again with the Ralph Lauren shirt, when will I stop you ask? NEVER.

(Just kitten of course! Hahaha... ha..)

Spotted this tropical maxi outside of church; it's so on trend & perfect for sunny days! I want to take it to Hawaii asap

Also, met a wonderful Nigerian woman. Traditional tribal clothing is immensely fascinating. I love how fashionable it is while practical; breathable dress with matching head scarf keeps the heat away. She's also just so darling!

Obsessed: Polo by Ralph Lauren

I don't have one particular style, I'm not one for 'punk' or 'girly' labeling my clothing choices, however I can't help but be utterly smitten (and dare I admit, obsessed) with my Ralph Lauren shirts.

There's something so convenient, classic, and convertible about them. I love them buttoned down or thrown on. Either way I'm definitely having a -long- moment with these! Also checks off my 'white buttoned-down shirt' staple.
