Summer is in full effect and I’m ready to paint the town red (and blue *smirks*) with this leafy Hawaiian shirt and electric-blue shoe ensemble.
I went with long khaki shorts to balance out the risky fit. When you are incorporating so much with your shirt and your shoes, you want to do a more refined bottom so everything doesn’t clash. The shirt has small accents of blue, which is why I paired it with the electric-blue sneakers–an edgy but understated look.
Don’t forget to smile and enjoy the summer weather!
Happy summer, everyone! I am now officially on summer break *whoop whoop* which means FRREEEDDDOOOMMMMMMM!!!! Every year on the last day of school, my friends and I like to do something together. Being the girly-girl teenagers that we are, this year we decided to do our two favorite things: shop and eat.
While strolling around town, Sherrine and I spotted this beautiful mosaic wall and we just couldn’t resist stopping for a quick pic…candid, anyone?
The mall we went to had a Ferris wheel—I mean, what??? It also had some amazing shopping (Nordstrom was a must, of course) and restaurants.
Now you see me and Ellie posing in front of our new favorite wall. As you can tell, we’ve both been loving rockin’ pretty and pink prints for the summertime!
No day can be complete without a sweet treat! It was extra hot this day in SoCal, so frozen yogurt seemed the perfect way to go!
This week has been full of graduation festivities, which includes Senior Awards Ceremony, Baccalaureate Mass and, finally, graduation. As my education at a Catholic school comes to a close, it is a tradition in the church to celebrate the graduating class with a Baccalaureate mass. For those of you who are not Catholic, a Baccalaureate mass is a celebration of the graduating class, praying for them as they take on the next journey of their lives, and usually involves not only the priest, but the bishop of the area.
Since the Senior Awards Ceremony and Baccalaureate Mass were on the same day, I just wore the same outfit to both because one was in the morning and the other was in the evening.
I wanted to show you guys what I wore, since a lot of my friends that don’t go to Catholic school ask me how they should dress for a mass.
R-E-D spells red, H-O-T spells hot. Put ’em together and whatta ya got? Red hot, red hot, red hot!
Shout-out to all my cheerleaders out there–that cheer seemed quite appropriate for today’s #OOTD because of these li’l red shorts I’m sporting by the brand Lush (one of my faves).
Now that it’s summer, I’ve got a lot more time on my hands, and one of my favorite things to do is to go outside and read a good book…preferably a mushy summer romance. I know it can get pretty hot, but that’s why I slipped on these breezy shorts and a cream knit tank to help stay cool! I encourage all of you to get out of the house this summer and have some fun, whether it be chilling by the pool or exploring your local hiking trails.
Now that summer is finally here, it’s time to bust out all the light colors. I’ve done a post on the all white trend before and I can’t help but feature this summer color again. This time, I want to pair white with my favorite fabric: denim. But more specifically, light denim!
Here I paired an easy-breezy button-down with some Levi’s boyfriend jeans. Oh, and a black felt hat. Just some basic pieces in some basic colors.
And just like that…high school is officially over! After 12 years of grade school, middle school and high school, it all has come to end. I’m blessed to say that I graduated with honors and will be attending Robert Morris University in the fall to study Marketing.
Now to the outfit breakdown! I did not have a set style in mind when it came to selecting this fit–I just went with an earthtone color scheme and BOOM! This is what I came out with (mind you I purchased this look two hours before the ceremony lol).

I always start my looks with the selection of a blazer. I wanted to do something traditional but also somewhat unique, so I paired the navy blazer with a cranberry-colored pant. I opted for a tan shoe and tan belt, finished off with a navy bow tie to really bring the look full circle. When your blazer and pants are very vibrant, you want to incorporate a subtle dress shirt, which is why I selected a very light shade of maroon for this look.
Moving on to the next chapter of my life is a very exciting thing and I am eager to see what’s in store for me next!
