It’s All in the Details

Version 2Version 2

I love all the little details that make up an outfit: the earrings, the bracelets, the patterns. Details tie everything together and can make or break an outfit. Recently, I’ve been wearing certain details everyday (as you can see from the photos, there are a ton of bracelets on my wrist). Each one has its own story and its own special memory and I like being able to look down everyday and be reminded of that.

The pink bracelet is from the twenty one pilots concert which was just absolutely incredible. The dark grey bracelet with the silver clasp was a graduation gift from one of my best friends. The red bracelet was something we needed to get into events at orientation. The lobster claw bracelet was a graduation gift from my parents so that I will always remember Maine. The puzzle piece bracelet was something we made at orientation to represent how we are all connected as individuals.

Moving on from the bracelet details. I’ve been loving my elephant pants lately. We had some hot, rainy weather a while back and I didn’t particularly want to go to work in shorts because I would be cold, but jeans would be too hot. Loose, flowy pants were the perfect solution! I’m not going to lie, I struggled to find a good way to style these pants for a long time. Longer shirts always felt awkward and just didn’t look right. However, after some Google searching and Pinterest browsing, I realized that crop tops are the solution! I got this crop top at a consignment store, but it’s from Abercrombie and Fitch. I love how it’s 3/4 length because it makes it versatile for all seasons.

4th of July Shenanigans

Version 2Hey you guys! I hope you’ve had a great week! I just wanted to tell you a little bit about what I did on the Fourth of July because it was super cute and definitely Pinterest worthy. And who doesn’t love a Pinterest worthy post? I actually had to work from 9 til 3 on Fourth of July (and no I did not get time and a half, but my boss asked if I wanted the day off and I told her no). After work my two best friends came over and we did some cooking and Scandal watching. At 6 we headed over to our local park and spread our goodies on our $4 table cloth that my friends grabbed from Family Dollar (always looking for that bargain). We had kabobs, chips, cheese and crackers, parfaits, and an incredible flag cake made by yours truly. We listened to music and ate until our stomachs were bursting. Then at 9 we went and watched the fireworks, which were really great this year! All in all it was a spectacular day with some spectacular people.

Finding Dory Review

Finding Dory is probably one of the best sequels I have ever seen. It continued off the old movie some (Marlin and Nemo were some of the main characters), but Dory was the character the story focused around (I mean what else would expect from the name Finding Dory?) and the movie was completely its own. The engaging storyline and wonderful characters made it well worth the $10 ticket (which I still haven’t paid my friend back for, whoops, sorry Gretch). Plus, who can resist those huge baby Dory eyes?

Also keep a lookout for my favorite new characters: Hank, Gerald, and Becky (from left to right)
