Diy'd Playsuit!

Hey guys!  I'm so sorry I haven't been posting.  I've been adventuring to the max and doing other majestic things.  Such as yesterday, I ventured out to llama fields and made friends with some llamas.  I really want one.  They are so gorgeous.

Anywho, I've also been shopping for back-to-school clothing.  I found some pretty RADICAL pieces but my favorite are(get ready)...........................MY NEW OVERALLS.  Well, they weren't so beautiful when I first got them, but I had faith.  People, always have faith in ugly clothing.

With these new overalls on my hands, I decided they needed some work.  So, I grabbed a Sharpie and some fabric scissors and started cutting away.

Step 1: Buy some overalls(preferably a couple sizes too big so you can roll the shorts).

Step 2: Cut about three inches above the knee.

Step 3: Roll up as much as you desire.


I am absolutely obsessed with these.  I feel like I should frolic in the fields of Terabithia.  I feel five years old, again!  And to fit the mood, I decided to take some pictures in front of my playhouse:

Collared shirt: Cotton On
Overalls & Booties: Thrifted
Socks: Anthropologie

Ahh these pictures just envelop my mood/vibes so well.  So does this Rookie "eye candy".  

So, the moral of the story?  Wear overalls as much as you possibly can.

End of Summer Nostalgia, Little Dragon, etc.

It starts a week from yesterday.  Yes, that's right folks, (I don't even want to type it) SCHOOL.  I guess I'm not dreading it as much as I was expecting, but I don't want summer to end!  All of the "summer nostalgia" is coming to me right now and I'm reminiscing on wonderful summery thoughts.  Damn, I sound so melodramatic right now.  But hey, it's so darn true.

So, I have been putting all of these thoughts to use.  During times of nostalgic thinking, I make collages.  I guess it how I articulate my thoughts into something a little more organized.  Although, I wouldn't describe a collage as being organized.  At least not mine:

As you can see, this is a jumbled mess of floral-pastel-overexposedness.  I'm obsessed with anything and everything floral at the moment.  Anything that makes me feel like a butterfly makes me happy.  My back to school shopping list?

1. Floral Keds
2. New backpack

If you're confused as of what I am talking about, take a looksie:

Also, this band makes me so happy.  Little Dragon, everyone.

 Yukimi Nagano has such a dreamy, funky, unique voice.  Whenever I listen to one of their songs, I get up and dance.  Especially this one:

I think I will listen to all of their songs before I head to school.


P.S. Back to school shopping later today! Wooooohooo.

Sheer Ruffles

Dress: Kelyna
Sandals: Texto

And here's the last of my Europen travels.  Barcelona, Spain everyone!

Here I am in all of my new European garb.  I got this dress at a little boutique in a lovely village called Foix.  It's a beautiful coral color and the ruffles just make my life.  I've never really thought I was a ruffles kind of person, but hey, there's a first time for everything!  I love this dress so much.  Oh, did I mention it feels as if I'm wearing jammies?  I'm all for comfort, my friends.  I can't stand uncomfortable clothes.  I don't know how people do it!  I also love these sandals so much.  Thank god I got some new ones, my others fell apart and I had to throw them away ): .

I also found that the street fashion in Spain is a hell of a lot better than in Paris.  I didn't take too many pictures of awesome people because my parents were on a mission to see everything in the one and a half days we were there.  The best part was that everyone dressed exactly how they wanted to.  You can see everything from the worst fashion possible to the most glamorous people ever.  I would die to have lovely Spanish skin/hair.  Ahhh they are all so gorgeous. Well, maybe not this one:

I miss and love you so much, Europe!  Can't wait to come back.

P.S. All my pictures are up on Flickr!!

Whimsical Cathedral

Top: H&M
Shorts: Thrifted
Sandals: Texto

As I am typing this back at home in the U.S. of A. we can pretend I'm still in Girona.  I'm so bad at this whole 'keep up with the blog/tumblr/flickr' shenanigans.  As you can see, I'm standing in front of a cathedral.  Yeah folks, that's right, a cathedral.  If I learned something in Europe it's that there are myriad cathedrals.

Anyway, I've been holding off to wear this shirt in a Lookbook picture because I needed to find a fabulous background.  I think this one was perfect.  Thanks to my mama, these pictures turned out extremely well!

I got this shirt at H&M and it's definitely my favorite thing I have bought from the store.  It's the PERFECT summer shirt.  Light, sheer, and best of all...COLLARED.  I'm so happy I found a lovely collar.  The lace is gorgeous and whenever I wear it, I catch myself looking down at my collar giving myself a wonderful double chin.  So classy of me, right?

I've worn these shorts in other outfits and I will definitely be wearing them in future outfits.  They are so comfortable AND pretty.  What girl could ask for more?  These shoes are from Texto and I got them for over half off at the national "Soldes".  For a clothes-aholic like me, this was the perfect time to go to Europe.  Everything is on sale.  Well, most everything!

I absolutely loved Girona.  The medieval city was gorgeous and cultured.  Also, if you ever go to Girona(or anywhere somewhat near it) you MUST go to the Museu del Cinema.  It's by far the best museum I've ever been to.  I even got to see the original Tootsie dress!  Being the camera/film junkie that I am, it was pretty much like heaven.

Want some pictures?:

P.S. I've been procrastinating with Flickr as well.  Bear with me here my friends.
P.P.S. Is everyone watching the Olympics?!
