UO top favorites.

these are a few of my summer must haves from Urban Outfitters. (1)Floral dresses seem to be really in right now. You can dress them up with some wedges and accessories or pair with a light cardigan and boots for a cooler day. (2) I love love love rompers. The style of this one is just to die for. I love how the model paired it with that simple long necklace. (3) I love to pair keds with a lot of my outfits. They remind me of being a little girl, and I like to wear them with dresses for a more casual look. (4) I really like these bike shorts. I do not particularly like them with that top, but i have paired them with this this tunic. (5) This plaid tunic is so versatile. You can wear it as a bathing suit cover up, with boyfriend jeans, or with black bike shorts.

sweet sweet summer time.

Yesterday was officially the first day of summer! Not that it makes any difference living in Southeast Texas. It has already been in the 100s the past few weeks. There are many things that I love about summer...

Beach. Bathing suits. Novels. Sundresses. Hats. Lemonade. BBQs. Cupcakes. Magazines. Relaxation. Pictures. Picnics. Fresh Fruit. Eating outside. Weekend gettaways. Fireworks. Pool.

What are your favorite things about summer?

head over heels.

So lately my new favorite thing to wear are heels and wedges. I've been in a flats, keds, and boots phase for quite sometime now, and I just recently decided that I needed some height. My mom has been begging me for years to wear heels more since I have a 5' 2 1/2" frame.
So here are my most recent purchases..

1. MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Jamesport' Sandal- $144.95
2. MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Robertsen' Sandal- $149.95
3. Steve Madden 'ZOII' Platform- $89.95
4. Steve Madden 'BERRIE' Wedge- $89.95
5. Steve Madden 'QUINELLA' Wedge- $89.98
(on sale for $69 at Macy's!)

i'll post some pictures later of outfits to pair with these stellar shoes.

sink into me.

So sadly after two years of rooming together, my three lovely roommates are moving out and on to bigger and better things. It is going to be extremely weird not having them down the hall from me especially since I will be living in the same house. I did not want to continue to be sad and down when I move back in the house in August, so I came up with a plan.

Operation- Redo Natalie's Room is what I'll call it..

I thought it would be a good idea so that way it wouldn't be like I was coming back into the exact same room without them there, and of course I am always up for something new.

and this new pretty duvet was my first purchase toward the cause..

I'll continue to post more pictures and ideas as they come..

puppy fever.

Today I am wanting this precious puppy (or one like it).
It is a Bich-poo (a Bichon frise mixed with a poodle).
I would name her Berkeley.
If only my mom understood how much I NEED her.
I know we would be the best of friends...
