New Discovery!

So about a month ago one of my very lovely friends, Krystyna, clued me in on a fantastic find:

The website layout is absolutely amazing. It has a really luxe vibe but for an entirely affordable price range.  They have a great assortment of dresses, skirts, tops, and more! I mean, this  stuff is lust worthy, and as soon as I have some money, I know straight where it's going (sorry Mom&Dad.)
Some of my favorite picks from the site:
Looooove this ombre crochet skirt.. 

The pattern on this makes it totally on-trend. It reminds me of this Khloe Kardashian  Odom look:

Red intimidates me a little but I love this dress so much I don't even care. I'd do a halo braid and  red lips with this.

The trim on this is to-die. I have a crochet/lace addiction #sorrynotsorry

And last but not least, this floral bikini. Absolute lovely perfection.

So go check out the site, I'm a bit in love.. Tell me what catches your eye!

Music Monday!

Lately my music has been boring me a bit and I needed something new. So every once in a while I'll take chance and just click on whatever pops up first on youtube. Sometimes it's a good method, sometimes it isn't. But, last week it helped me out a bunch and I dicovered some really great music. From now on Music Mondays will be a bit different than previous ones. Instead of a youtube link for each song, I'm going to post a link for a spotify playlist that I'll compile for each week :) Here we go!
 Happy Listening!
Rock on, readers!

Treasure Island

So lately I've been on a treasure hunt of sorts. I've developed a bit of an obsession with anything nautical-themed. And not just because it's summer, either. About a month from now ( 1 month and 2 days to be exact! Eeeeek!!!) I'll be heading off to college. Seeing as how our mascot is a pirate, I have developed a bit of an obsession with anything I can find relating to the theme. And to be quite honest, my daily visits to Wanelo have done absolutely nothing but encourage me. I've found all kinds of jewelry, t-shirts, and art prints all over the web that I've decided I NEED. Of course, the never-ending battle for my step-dad is for me to finally discern my needs versus my wants. No matter, it's not going to happen anytime soon. Without further ado, wenches and buccaneers (yeah,yeah, I'm working on it...) some of the things that have caught my eye:

Coach bracelet

A suuuuper cute phone case from Etsy

Wouldn't we all? *sigh* 

These totally remind me of Sarah Paxton's from Aquamarine..

How awesome is this watch from Shopbop??

Need, need, NEED this pillow from Society6. It WILL be mine.

Both this sweater and the shirt above are from Ustrendy  who have  adorable winter stuff..

In love with this bow from Zibbet.. How cute would it be tucked just under a topknot?

So anyway, expect a lot more posts like this since from now on I'm basically going to be surrounded by all kinds of nautical novelties. The tshirt was really the only mermaid-related find I posted but that's because that would take  a whole month to put together. My love for mermaids is unreal (my mother has yet to convince me that I am not actually a daughter of the sea, but that I feel it's up for discussion...) so don't worry it'll pop up sooner or later! But if you love nautical-inspired stuff for summertime or just the summertime vibe in general, check out my summer board on Pinterest:

My plans for the day are to go to the flea market and pick up a bit of decor (trinket bowls and the like ) for my dorm room, so I thought I'd show you something I found at a thrift store last weekend since it goes with the vibe of this post..
It's pretty small but it'll fit a few pairs of earrings or something like that..
Thanks for reading! Are you into the whole nautical theme? What's your summer obsession?

Ps. Like I said, I found all of those pieces on Wanelo.. You can discover your own treasure here:

Recent Haul

So in May I graduated and to celebrate I decided to treat myself to a little bit of shopping.. Over 2 weeks(I think) I picked a few different things. Most of them are fairly simple pieces but with a little bit of flair. My favorite places to shop on a budget are Forever21 and Target.. Both have suuuuupercute stuff and for super reasonable prices.. My shopping buddy is the spectacularly amazing Cassie, who loves to shop just as much as I do. We're always very honest (as good shopping are supposed to be, it's like the number one rule) but never mean about it.
For instance:
Me to Cassie: It's really, really cute. Buuuuut it's also really, really short. Like if you even thought about bending over your butt would pop out. But it would kind of be okay because you have a nice butt.

Cassie to me: It looks good, but maybe not so much on the boobs. It's just because they're so big. Like,dude, I wish I had your boobs.
Cassie and I on a recent trip to Victoria's Secret.

Anyway, Cassie and I have gone shopping a few times this summer and this is what I've come out with..

Forever 21-- Gray tshirt material with white chiffon sleeves

Target-- Mossimo printed jeans

Forever21-- Cream (as opposed to white) crochet shorts

Forever21-- Blue maxi skirt( the bottom half is sheer with a slit)

A close-up of the beading on the collar
Forever21-- White button up
I've also bought a few basics like tshirts and undies, both from F21 and superbly comfy, I highly recommend checking out the website for great deals on both:

As always, I hope to be shopping again very,very soon. Lucky for me, I'm leaving Sunday for North Carolina where I'll be for about a week, which means I likely will get in a good bit of shopping( for both clothes,underwear included, and some stuff for my dorm) so I'm psyched!

Every girl likes a good sale. I happen to love a good sale. I love to shop period, but sales give me an excuse to get cray. But, with college coming up in the fall (GO PIRATES!!) I don't have quite as much leeway in the spending department. I did stop by the Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works semi-annuals yesterday though, I couldn't help it.. I lurrrv me some VS and lately I've had a bit of a B&B obsession too, I'm not sure what all that's about? Anyway, I got this cute water bottle a few weeks ago on the first day of the VS sale:

And yesterday I really didn't get that much, but I love what I got.. Whenever I go to semi's I try to stock up. In my room I have a whole bookshelf full of perfume,lotion, nail polish what-not( I'm pretty much the definition of a girly-girl) but you can't fit all that in a dorm, so I decided to only get a few things yesterday, and specifically for my dorm room. So that means I won't be using pretty much anything I buy until August,sigh. BUT I'll have a whole bunch of brand-new stuff to add to the excitement! Without further ado:
Bath and Body Works (Wild Honeysuckle, Enchanted Orchid, and Secret Wonderland-- usually  $10, on sale for $3)

Victoria's Secret aka Love of My Life( Pretty in Pink, Just One Kiss, and  Delicate Petals-- on sale for $3 each)

VS as well, PINK Sweet&Flirty-- actually wasn't on sale, but it smells amazing and  mine was empty
 So there it is, my haul from this round of the semi-annuals.. You can still shop the sales online at :
By the way y'all, this is the last time they'll have Secret Wonderland so if you love it like I do, RUN don't walk and get it before it's gone.. Happy Shopping!

 Where do you think has the best sales and what do you get?

Obsession Alert: Luxe Skirts!

Sooooo as much as I would like to just dive into this post with no acknowledgment of my entirely too long leave of absence, I feel the need to say a BIG sorry to anyone who actually reads my blog and has missed me:( If I could, I would give you a big hug and a pile of diamonds to make up for it!

But now that y'all are happy again, let's get this started,ok? Ok :)

I've been super into the baroque, kinda medieval glam trend lately. Read: I've always wanted to be a  princess, so this felt like a modern way to accomplish that (now if only I could find a way to bring my tiara into this...). Also, it feels very Queen Cersei from Game of Thrones,aka the best show ever, and I lurrrrrv me some GOT.

So I bought this skirt from Forever21 about a month ago, and ok, if I wore this out in my neck of the woods right now, it really wouldn't make sense seeing as how it's velvet, so I'm waiting until November when it gets a bit chillier.
Forever 21 $8
Honestly, there are a bunch of ways you could wear this skirt. You could wear a sequin collared top for a girlier take, or a knit pullover for a more downtown vibe.

Forever 21 $18(saleeeee!)
Forever 21 $23

 And about a million other spins or tweaks you could put on it from jackets, sweaters, necklaces and shoes.
Super Edgy (Topshop $50)

Really girly (Topshop $110)

Or even a little bit boho with a scarf (Yoox $78)

And going with the fancy skirt trend are a few I spotted on the World Wide Interweb last night.

My absolute favorite blogger (check her out at: )
Aisha Tyler

And Whitney Port

Lessons learned today:
1)Game of Thrones is the best show ever. Aside from New Girl, The Mindy Project, and Teen Wolf.(That was terrible, but forreal watch Season 3, March 31!)
2)Everything looks better with a fancy skirt, so check out some of these:
River Island ($50 from Asos)
Asos $62

Forever 21 $25

And because I've been so lax lately, here's a some new music, to say once again, how sorry I am!
1)Ellie Goulding- Halcyon (Um, hello, it's Ellie. Nuff said.)
Top track: Changes constantly, she's just too good. But right now "Need Your Love" is playing, so let's go with that.
2)Ed Sheeran- + (I realize that as an Anglophile I should have been on this boat a long time ago, but better late than never)
Top track: Once again, it's so hard! But I'm going to go with "Little Bird", only because it's what came on 1st.
3)P!nk- Truth About Love(P!nk is every girl's champion. Trust me on this one.) "Slut Like You", no contest. I mean, the whole album is good but you can't beat her little rap towards the end.
