Seasons of Wither








Hello, followers! I had such a great day today, what about you all? I don't really have much to say this time, but I did decide to not really edit my photos much, I just adjusted a few things like contrast and I resized them and that was about it! I usually like them to have a warmer tint, but I wanted these to have a more straight-out-of-camera look. No reason behind it really, but I kind of like it better. What are y'all's opinions on it? :)

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day! xx

Orla Kiely SS12






I'm a bit late on seeing this Spring/Summer 2012 collection from Orla Kiely, but better late than never, right? I'm very glad I came across it, it has to be the loveliest collection I've seen for SS12 so far! What really caught my eye is the drop waist dresses, and all of the warm, girly colors. I also am in love with the simplicity of this collection. It is all just so dreamy! I wish I owned all of the pieces shown in the photos above, but unfortunately, it's a bit out of my price range. I'll just keep dreaming, though!

I would like to know, what do you all think about this collection?

Have a nice day! xx

Deuces Are Wild




As you can tell from the two photos above, I was really enjoying twirling in this dress. Haha!









Hello! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, it has been raining all week! Yesterday it was finally nice outside, so I took some photos and wore that outfit, and I had so much fun! I was alone, like always when I take photos for my blog, but I made the best of it! It was really windy outside, and my dress and hair were blowing everywhere! This led to me constantly twirling in my dress, and that definitely kept me entertained the whole afternoon! I got the dress along with many other cute clothes about two weeks ago. It was a very good week in the world of thrifting for me! I got some cute white cut-out oxfords (seen in my last post), a cute floral romper, my red sunflower dress (seen in last post also), and so many other things that I can't remember off the top of my head!

Anyways, the past few days I've been in a creative mood. I want to make a DIY-something, and make some how-to's here on my blog, but I just don't know what to do yet. If you all have any suggestions or have anything specific you would like to see a tutorial on, leave a comment! I'm really wanting to try out some new things and share them with you all! - Thanks for reading!

Summertime











Hello! The other day I went to the park and took these photos, and I had a very nice time! I took the photos more for my Flickr account, and so they probably aren't showing off the outfit as much. But I love this outfit! It is simple, but it is very comfortable and reminds me of summertime, so I love it! It is one of my favorite outfits now, actually.

Also, don't forget to enter in the contest I recently posted! It is very simple to enter, and the prize is nice!

That's all for now, I'm really tired so I think I'll go take a nap. Have a lovely weekend! xx

Day to Night!







Wearing: Cardigan - Forever 21, Top (corset) c/o Vedette Shapewear, Shorts - Thrifted, Oxford Heels, Target





Wearing: Faux Leather jacket - Windsor, Top (corset) c/o Vedette Shapewear, Pants - Thrifted, Heels - Target, Hat - Forever 21

Hi everyone! Sorry I have blogged in two whole weeks - I have been super busy with school! Anyways, the other day, the lovely folks over at Vedette Shapewear sent me this wondeful corset, it is such a beautiful piece, and it is a very lovely colour and lace detailing on it, which is why I love it so much! I think this piece could definitely be worn as in either a day or night look, because it has a certain look to it that could look casual, or could be dressed up more. The colours in it are colours that can be worn at anytime of day, and to be dressed down a bit more for a casual look, I thought it was easy to just pair it with some high-waisted shorts and a cardigan. For a more dressed up nighttime look, I thought I would pair it with some high-waisted pants, and my leather jacket. I thought the colours of the corset along with the faux leather jacket created a sort-of edgy look, but the lace in the corset and the pearl detailing at the snaps of the corset along with my pearl necklace also gave it a soft, more girly look. It has been a very different experience for me to be wearing innerwear as outerwear in these looks, but I think this is a trend that every girl should try, because in a way I think it shows confidence, and it definitely makes a statement. It grabs someone's attention in a positive way! This is especially trendy if you are wearing beautiful pieces with nice colours and designs, like this corset that Vedette Shapewear sent to me. It is so lovely, I couldn't help but to wear it as outerwear! Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day! xx
