Happy Fourth of July, guys!
I hope you are all enjoying your barbecues, parades, and sparklers today. This weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year (especially since this one was EXTRA long). It is always full of fun and bursting at the seams with joy. I mean, how could you not be happy when celebrating America!? Our family spent all morning at our local parade and will be cheering on the Rockies at Coors Field tonight. I am so excited because we even get to see a firework show after the game (I have heard it is pretty spectacular). I don’t need much to make me happy on a day like today – all I ask for is a yummy hot dog and nice firework show, and that’s exactly what I’m going to get.
Hello beauties! Here is another Five to Try coming in real hot.
I already feel like this series is going to get out of hand because I keep on finding SO MANY cute pieces! I am seriously fighting back the urge to post more than one of these every week. I’ll also go ahead and apologize now for making you question what you may or may not be putting your weekly paycheck towards from here on because these items might just be too hard for anyone to pass up. I hope you enjoy!
New York fashion – it is such a beautiful thing.
Honestly, that is what I was most excited about when I first found out that I would be moving to Manhattan. All I could imagine in my head was being able to dress up like Carrie Bradshaw everyday without having anyone judge me as I walked down the street. I have always had a passion for experimenting with style, but I felt like I never lived in a city that could accept or admire it. It was so refreshing to step outside for the first time and be completely comfortable with myself and what I was wearing. I mean, I was always confident enough to wear what I wanted in other cities, but it did bug me when others would constantly ask, “what are you wearing!?!?” At least the joke was usually on them when a few months down the line my outfit inspirations became the new hip thing that everyone had to get their hands on! That’s the perk of being able to study fashion trends – having the ability to forecast what the next big thing will be. People may look at you like you’re crazy when they see it for the first time, but I know in the back of my head that they will be reaching for the same pieces soon enough.
February. The month of love.
It’s always funny to me to see what this specific month seems to do to people. It creates such a huge divide between the ones who choose to celebrate love and the ones who get all down-in-the-dumps because they don’t think that they have it. Well I am here to bring you some good news – we all have love – and that’s something worth celebrating.
Give me warmth. Give me spring. Give me sun.
Spring will officially be here in just a few weeks, and our Minnesota weather is finally starting to show it! Today as I dressed to go run some errands, I originally bundled up in some jeans, a sweater, and a cozy winter jacket. When I stepped outside and looked up at the cloudy sky I was just waiting for that cold Minnesota breeze to bite at my face. After a few seconds passed by, I realized that the cool feeling never hit. Instead, my body was covered with a warmth I hadn’t felt in months. The air actually felt balmy. It felt like a warm spring day right before a thunderstorm was about to roll in. I was literally in a state of shock. I remember hearing that warmer weather was around the corner, but I completely forgot what “warm weather” felt like. And boy, did it feel good.
