Print & Crochet

I love mixing textures in my outfits and right now I’m obsessed with these crochet shorts! I have them in this creme color and in black – they’re so in style right now you can find them almost anywhere!

► ABERCROMBIE (on sale!)
► RUE 21 (pictured & only $8!)

& tons of other places, I’m sure.

I am also loving light and airy clothing this summer, which is why I love this top so much. I  struggle to find things that are modest enough but also comfortable in the August heat and this shirt is just that! The fabric doesn’t stretch so I did buy it in a 14 (way too big for me) but it allows more movement in the shoulders, it’s not tight around my chest, and it’s long so I can wear it with leggings in the fall too! The pattern, I think, is so versatile which makes this an overused piece of mine. It wears well in the summer and in the fall, and I love it! I love the knit detail in the elbows and the sleeves flare out so it has a little bit of a hippy vibe going on which just suits my personal style.

I did get this top a while ago, so I linked ONE  here that is sort of similar and I love and TWO that I also really like – both from CATO, where I got this one. I had never heard of CATO until I moved here and it was one of the only clothing stores in town. Some of the items in this store are a bit southern for me, but some of their pieces are to die for!! It’s definitely worth walking into and giving a look around! I’m glad I didn’t totally write it off.

  • NYC: tolerant of your beliefs, judgmental of your shoes.
  • Thanking the heavens for @otbtshoes and their chunky cute wedges. 😜 I didn’t think I could love them more and then they unveiled their “Layover” wedges! I’m so stoked to wear these like.. all spring and summer. 👏🏼
  • Oh HAPPY DAY. It’s been a great week. 🤗🙌🏼
  • Shaking up my routine with Herbal Essences Blue Ginger & Micellar Water Shampoo and Ginger Conditioner. I’ve been way into bath/skin/hair care recently. Spending all my $$ on loofas and soaps. @herbalessences came in for the save with this one 😂 but also these smell great and make my hair feel amazeballs.

  • I didn’t have a head cold in this picture. It was a much happier time. 
Happy Sunday, friends. 🤧
  • Super stoked for the weather to not be garbage. 🌊
  • Quote of the day: “Be alone. Eat alone. Take yourself on dates. Sleep alone. In the midst of this, you will learn about yourself. You will grow. You will figure out what inspires you. You will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person that makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you will be sure of yourself.”

  • Today I’m grateful for the things about me that I always considered to be my “bad” qualities. 
I think “bad” qualities are something we all possess, but I also think they’re useful in the sense that they do a job to weed the people out of our lives that aren’t beneficial to our end game- whatever that may be. 
So I’m listing my “bad” qualities this morning and I’m going to repurpose them. What good have they brought me? 
Some of the good I’ve come up with include: clarity, new surroundings, a chance to do what i need for myself, a new appreciation for life, love for myself that I didn’t realize I had, and so many more. 
If you’re feeling especially down about yourself, I challenge you to make a list of the things you don’t love and repurpose them. Think about what kind of good came out of your bad qualities and embrace that. 
I fully believe we are who we are for a reason and we should probably stop trying to be what we think people want us to be, and we should just.. be. Good, bad, and everything in between. You’ll be surprised who and what you attract.

i had 2 job interviews today & I’m going to reward myself with fried pickles. 🍽
  • Somethin about being sweet and wearing a crown. idk. I’m an asshole.
  • Life can get confusing. 
Intentions can get lost. 
Goals can change. 
It’s just what happens. But I’m going to try my damndest to channel the inner freebird inside me and learn to roll with these changes instead of trying to control them. 
We’re not in control of what happens. We’re only in control of our reactions and the choices we make.
