Pent Up in a Blind

This dress isn't practical every day wear, but it is a dress that I wish I could own every day. While it is a dress, I paired it with this mint crop top in an attempt to dress it down, wear it differently, and maximize my closet. I think it was a success! Plus someone told me I looked like a "princess mermaid" and there's no better compliment than that.

I've been spending a lot of time exploring different state parks, hiking, and hiding from the sun. If you follow me on instagram, you'll get a sneak peak at my adventures because I'm really bad at being "that" blogger that shares everything on all social media networks.

What I'm Watching, Reading, & Listening to #6

I've been busy enjoying nature lately, but in the last month and a half I've read some good books, seen some wonderful films, and caught up on some television.

MOVIES

Trainwreck
I'm a huge fan of Judd Apatow films, Amy Schumer, Bill Hadar and rom-com's -- so this was a must see for me. It was absolutely everything that I love about romantic comedies, but with really good writing and an all-star cast. The movie had tons of wonderful guest stars and one-liners. It might've been a little drawn out at times and a little quick paced in other parts, but overall, I loved this movie so much that I really want to see it again.

Gone Girl
I'm really bad at being current with movies which is why I'm not surprised that I missed this one. Which kind of bums me out because it was so damn good. I'm really into psychological thrillers and this was so much more than that. I don't remember the last time I was that captivated by a movie. So many perfect lines, intrigue, and poignant scenes.

Bloodhound

This is hands down one of the best dresses I've ever had. I can't believe I got it in an online swap! I only wish that I had a thousand more dresses in the exact same style. It's a dream. It's really heavy, but it's still breathable in these extremely thick and hot days.

Rachel, Abby, and I have been working on our second large scale clothing swap for the last several months and we're so excited to finally have all of the details ready to share. You'd never know that so much work goes into event planning, but it REALLY does. In addition to hosting the huge swap, we've also launched a website for all of our events. We've been regularly hosting gatherings for bloggers and other creatives and figured why not. If you're local and want more info on the swap, check it out. We'd love to have you there!

Albatross

summer, style, pixie cut, blonde pixie, ootd, floral print

These photos were taken shortly after my last cut. Hence the perfect cut and the bright white. Having blonde hair is one thing. Having a pixie is another. Having a blonde pixie...well, that's a whole other beast of upkeep. Luckily, I'm gettin' cleaned up this week.

My summer style has been pretty low-key. Attracted to breathable pieces and no-fuss clothing. I've definitely been succeeding.
