Summer Skirting

Summer Skirting

Throwing on a skirt during the summer is so easy and so cute. With the hot weather, it's nice to not have to wear pants or shorts and still look like you're trying, when in reality, wearing and styling a skirt is just plain simple. I own too many skirts for my own good and I'm looking to add a few like these above. Throw on some cute jewelry and a white tee, and you've got an adorable summer outfit!

She Wears Short Shorts

Finals are (final)ly done! Yay! Summer is here, and I'm loving it already. I went shopping to celebrate the end of school and found these beauties (the shorts) on the sale rack in J. Crew! I've been dying over them for the longest time and was finally able to get them. The pattern is simply gorgeous!

Happy Memorial Day!

Summer in the Sun

All of the rain and downright gloomy weather that has been going on lately has really gotten me excited about summer days! This summer is going to be jam-packed; I can assure you of that. Lake with my friends, camp, college tours- it's going to be non-stop. I'm over the moon with the idea of this kind of seemingly endless summer!

I put together a few of my favorite pics to help us all pull through these last weeks of exams and what not.

"Philippi" Hotel in Mykonos town

Okay, granted, this isn't the most "summery" picture ever, but for some reason the color white just seems to scream "summer" to me. Am I the only one?

{Multi-functional is key for effortless style} A towel full of tricks is excellent for all your adventures! An eco-friendly beauty makes the perfect beach towel, bath sheet, sarong, tablecloth, scarf, and much more. Frolic by the sea, picnic in the park, impromptu dinner party, or simply wrap yourself up in lavish 100% cotton.

No summer is complete without a trip to the beach.

Samos, a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea.

Oh, what I would give to go here.

S'mores and summer nights. Perfect combo.

What's summer without a great 4th of July celebration?

What are your summer plans?

Obsession: 1920s

I'm not quite sure why, but for the past few weeks or so, I've been completely obsessed with everything having to do with the 1920's! The style, the make-up, the hair; everything! I'm telling you right now, that if you told me I could travel to any year, it would be the 20's.

Flapper-A young woman, especially one in the 1920s who showed disdain for conventional dress and behavior.

It's all simply to die for. The hairbands alone are gorgeous.

Honestly, I would give anything in the world to go to an amazingly-planned Gatsby party. My friend and I were just talking today about how we might throw one at the end of the summer. I've already started hunting down a dress. :)

But seriously, the dresses are absolutely stunning.
