When doves cry

I wore this pretty dress to celebrate Skyla's birthday. We had brunch and made pretty floral crowns. It was a great day and what better way to celebrate a birthday than with an ice cream dress?

My hair is in a really awkward hair stage, so please forgive me while I try and tame it. Whenever I get all the tiny awkward strains in place, a gust of wind attacks and I look unruly. Can it just be a normal length yet?

Oh, and I'm over at Elana's showing off some of my favorite Spring looks!

Celebrating Earth Day with Schoola

I'm a huge supporter of donating clothes, thrifting, and continuously cleaning out my closet. Whether I'm donating to the local Goodwill, or a friend -- it's really something I feel good doing. Did you know that American's send over 10.5 million tons of clothes to landfills each year? This is absolutely crazy and with so many ways to donate clothing, I was thrilled to discover Schoola. Schoola is an online thrift store that donates 40% of their proceeds to benefit children's education in the United States and Malala Fund internationally.

Earth Day is April 22, so what better way to celebrate than by donating to Schoola? It's seriously as easy as requesting a bag. Schoola sent me this dress (and another) to celebrate Earth Day and with it, they sent me a few donation bags. I always have a stack of clothes that I'm ready to donate, swap, or giveaway. So, I filled the bags, put them by my door, and the post man grabbed them for me. It was painless and I like painless.

Even better? You can select a school to benefit from the sale of your clothes. The primary schools I went to, weren't exactly the most advantaged and I am thrilled to be able to give back. I buy used clothes as often as I can and I would never throw out a piece of clothing, so while it might not seem like much, it's a nice way for a girl that loves clothes to help out this lovely Earth of ours!

Wait 'Til the Morning

If we've ever met IRL you probably learned one thing about me: I'm clumsy. I'm not your ordinary clumsy either. I'm the kind of person that frequently throws her iPhone into moving traffic, runs into walls, and sometimes falls while walking. I'm also highly destructive with electronics. I've never managed to break my phone (seriously, I throw it like six times a day on accident), but as luck would have it...I have successfully broken my third MacBook. This time. however, it's fixable and I didn't really do anything? My retina display cracked and it's going to cost A LOT of money to fix. I'm talking more than my rent. It cracked awhile ago, but it finally stopped working completely. Thankfully, my boyfriend has a really nice computer (see: not an Apple) that I can casually use. In the meantime, I'll be thinking of how I can learn to not be a destructive klutz. Are there classes for that? Let me know.

I thrifted this dress and I love the color combination. I, however, am still not exactly sure how I feel about the high-low trend. I guess it's okay, but it's also pretty weird, right? I personally would rather my whole dress be short?

Last week, I got to see one of my favorite bands, The Mountain Goats. It was my first time seeing them live and it was every bit as perfect as I had imagined it would be. I snatched up tickets months ago knowing it would sell out and not caring if I had anyone to attend with. So, I went alone, found some friends inside, and smiled all night. The drive home was horrendous as a blizzard was happening. I've managed to never really have to drive far in heavy snow. I was kind of freaking out as I couldn't see the lanes or an inch ahead of me. I, thankfully made it home with only a mild panic attack. Spring in Ohio sure is lovely.

Moral melt

This dress isn't exactly the shape I typically go for, but I loved the print. It was $2.50 and it'll be my go-to on a hot summer day dress. That is, when I want to look like I'm going on a beach vacation. My friend gave me a bunch of headbands and this lovely sparkly one was in the bunch. My hair is pretty awkward and wild these days so I'm thankful for headbands.

The other day, my friends and I played a killer game of Dream Phone. I felt really proud because I guessed our secret admirer first and I almost never win games. We also drank lots of coffee, thrifted, and took cute photos. Basically a dream day.
