skirt and bracelets: forever 21, flats: fossil

happy easter, everyone! 
this girl is off to church, followed by a tasty brunch with family. 
is it bad i am already dreaming about 
eggs and muffins and coffee and fruit and treats?
how will you celebrate?

spring, where did you go?

romper and flats: vintage, tights: target, wristlet: nordstrom 

i had to dig out my tights (and down vest and flannel) again today 
(not all for this post, of course).
just when i think the weather has turned a corner,
the rain and gloom are return.
spring, please come back;
this skin needs some sunshine and warmth. 

do you have any fun plans for easter?
i plan to celebrate tomorrow with family.
i cannot wait for tasty food and treats. 
happy early easter!

what to wear: easter edition

maxi dress here
printed shift dress here
navy floral dress here
floral drawstring dress here
wrangler dress here
color block tunic here

shopping for something fun to wear for easter?
these are a few of my favorites! 
sadly, the rain and gloom will slightly alter my attire - 
tights and a denim jacket will be essential. 
each of the above items are less than $50.
shopping on a budget - my kind of shopping.

have a wonderful holiday weekend, friends :)

jacket: h&m, t-shirt and headband: american eagle,
jeans: opal boutique, flats: jessica simpson

"let me take a selfie."
when i saw this shirt, i knew i needed it for blogging purposes.
and perhaps just daily life purposes, too. 
it is fun and incredibly soft, and i look forward to wearing it again. 
and i can be accused of taking a few
too many selfies and posting them on various social media platforms. 
but why not? 

happy friday, everyone.
 i will see you tomorrow with another outfit.

casual chic

^^^ this outfit needs more accessories! ^^^
dress: thrifted, tights: target, tennis shoes: converse, 
necklace: from my trip last summer to new orleans

i cannot get enough of my converse. 
i think i shall wear them all summer long;
when i am not in my tennis shoes, i will live in these.
what is your favorite shoe for summer?

this past weekend, i finished my montessori training program.
thus, this girl is officially a teacher! 
i may or may not have celebrated by eating ice cream for dinner.
and going on a mini shopping excursion to my favorite local thrift shop. 
i deserve a treat though, right?

i hope you enjoyed your weekend.

festival fun

dress, headband and bracelets: forever 21, tights: dkny, boots: thrifted

in honor of the current festival season, i thought it would be fun 
to put together festival-inspired look. 
a floral headband was essential in my mind; 
paired with a simple dress and boots, i am ready for music fun.
if only i was not sitting in class all weekend
and actually participating. 
alas, a girl can dream! 
happy monday!

on jumpsuits

jumpsuit: american eagle, denim jacket and necklace: nordstrom, flats: target

my first ever jumpsuit and i have to tell you -
i have never worn anything this comfortable. 
the loose (and breezy) fit, the light fabric, 
and fun floral print is great for spring. 
i think i will be living in this for the next few weeks. 
thank you, american eagle for finding me a new love.
