We put miles on these old jean jackets

This jean jacket is a staple in my Spring/early Fall wardrobe. Yet somehow I've only worn it on the blog maybe once or twice. In photos, the jacket looks a little big on me, but I assure you, IRL this thing is a dream. I randomly got into enamel pins a couple years ago (addicting!) and people started gifting me some real gems. So, thank you to everyone who has made this jacket punk as hell. This outfit is something I re-create often because well, it looks great but is also very easy and casual. Win/win.

For the first time in my life, I purchased non-black eyeglasses. I've had my eye on tortoise shell glasses for awhile and finally decided to just go for it. Change is hard, but it's a little easier when they're basically the same pair you had before just a little bit smaller.

Pretty Little Liars final season begins tonight and boy, am I both ready and not ready. I've been watching this show for seven years. SEVEN YEARS. A lot of shows deserve a long run, but PLL probably isn't one of them. The show got lost somewhere around season five and just hasn't recovered. I'm not a quitter and I have high hopes for these final ten episodes. It's truly an end of an era. I made so many friends because of this show, bonded with complete strangers, discovered Reddit, and got endless style inspiration. I'll miss this show like no other and I will definitely cry at least once during the finale.

Lime tree

AH! I went more blonde. Blonde is addictive and beautiful and next time I say I want to dye my hair dark, don't let me. I have this tendency to change my hair when I get bored. Blonde is my favorite shade of hair. I'm forever thankful for the stylists that indulge me and my ever changing mind. Blonde is a journey, but at least it's a worthwhile one.

I've had this dress since last year or so and somehow never wore it on the blog. It's got a beautiful motion and perfect color to it. The straps are removable, but since I'm not a strapless fan -- I kept them on. So, naturally, the straps broke. Instant strapless dress. Luckily, this fits a lot better than most strapless dresses. We're at the strange time of year where it's kind of warm yet still kind of freezing. Hence this summer/spring hybrid outfit.

give me a hand

I gravitate towards dresses because well, dresses are easy and the price tag makes sense. There's something about tops that I never understand. This strappy top trend is something I have been dying to try and let me tell you, it's worth all the hype. I've basically lived in this top since I got it. I am a serious outfit repeater. I paired this with a lacy bralette to make it a little more conservative while adding an extra amount of fun to it. I had a hard time deciding which skirt to wear this with. I almost shared two different ones, but I guess I'll save the other one for another day!

Speaking of trends, I've been crazy into the choker trend. Like look at them every time I go to a store. My sister, however, told me spending $10-$20 on a piece of fabric was not smart. So, this weekend I ordered some clasps (s/o to one day Amazon pick-up), hit up the craft store, and my other sister and I got to craftin'. I'm kind of in love with all of them and I didn't spend $15. Huge thanks to both of my sisters for being crafty and having good ideas and always indulging me.

Leopard gloom

As a short girl, it's REALLY hard to find clothing that fits me perfectly. If the length is good, it's too small somewhere or if it fits right, it's usually too long or baggy in a weird place. So, whenever I find something that fits in all the right places -- I never want to let go. This dress is exactly that: perfect. I already want to wear it every single day and I have so many ideas on how to style it again and again.
