Blue you

16821073119

I had such a great weekend. I traveled to Wichita to hang out with my little soccer sister from college ball. It’s so important for me to keep in contact with her, and when I can, I like to spend time with her. We shared our love for the game during a FC Wichita soccer match and after we club hopped the downtown area. It was fun to get away, if for only for a day.

Today, I spent the major of my time napping, relaxing, but also helping my parents run some errands. It’s been life lately. Next week I will start to prepare for my mission trip to Mexico with Micah. I hope to be able to share with you all my travel advice along with what I’m wearing and how preparing for this trip. There’s so much to do in so little time.

Since the majority of the day was spent running from indoors to outdoors I wore this very pretty blue top from the Buckle. I bought it last year during our rodeo day festival, but in reality it screams delicate and fine. I love the “V” detail and the lace. In addition the color is the perfect shade of blue.

I hope everyone’s Monday was filled with many accomplishments. Thinking of you, as always.

Today wasn’t a good day, weather wise. It was cool and windy. On top of that, there was just so much to do. I spent the majority of the day running up and down trying to get tiny tasks done. It was a bit frustrating that small items couldn’t be completed in a timely manner. It seems like during windy times frustration lurks around.

To help easy my frustration, I wore my hair in a ponytail. The top is an outlet find from Express. It’s new. Another new item are these heels I bought for a wedding I attended last weekend. They are from JCPenny’s. I have a feeling like these heels will be my go-to.

This weekend I’m taking a trip to Wichita to see my friend, it’s long overdue. Be sure to follow me on IG for videos and photo uploads. If not I’ll see you on Monday, as always.

Faux Pas

For as long as I can remember black tones just didn’t go well with brown tones. It was a faux pas, you just didn’t do it. Needless to say that I have followed this act until recently. Black is my favorite to color to wear, but as of late, brown has been attracting me. So because of this I’ve purchased a lot of brown toned heels, which according to me go with everything and anything.

I’ve decided to ditch the fact that these two colors simply can’t be friends and I’ve accepted to embrace how wonderful I seem to feel in both at the same time. This top, although not entirely brown, gives into the black shorts and brown heels. It’s a perfect match. I found it at TJMAXX for a mere $12.99. This top, off the shoulder, is perfect for evening out unwanted tan lines. I’m still working on mine. As always.

Light green

Today’s post is later than usual. I’ve had quite a day. I spent most of my morning organizing and cleaning. My afternoon was spent catching up with the sister MariAntonia from my church. The evening was spent running errands. All to which I came home to my dog barking loud and with distraught. I approached her just to come and find a huge snake coiled up ready to attack her. My father came out, shovel in hand, and spiked the animal. Whew, close one.

What I wore today was this top from Maurices. In Dodge City, there is hardly anywhere decent to shop. You have Maurices and the Buckle. I alternate from time-to-time which of these stores I actually enter, as most of my shopping is done online. As of late Maurices has tickled my fancy and I’ve gone on a  bit of a shopping spree there. This top is one of my many great finds I’m excited to share with you all.

What I like the most about this piece is the gray and green tones. These are two of my favorite colors. It’s delicate and cool. It flows. It goes well with a lot of already favorite pieces. It’s perfect.

More on this look towards the bottom. As always.

Take two

Since I posted about my previous jumpsuit find, I’ve been spotting various and wonderful jumpsuits all around. I found this one last week at TJMAXX. Yes, I bought more than my fair share of good pieces while there.

Can you blame me for getting this piece? I mean look at it, it’s perfect for summer, it’s the right length, it’s cool, and it actually fits me. Items like these are hard to find. I mainly fell in love with the airy feel of the colors and floral pattern. In addition the pantsuit makes it easy to run free. Gosh what a find. The price my friends only a mere $19.99! You can’t beat that.

Have a great Tuesday. As always.

Off the shoulder

From time to time I enjoy following current trends. Other times I’m okay shopping the sales rack and falling behind fashion must haves for the simple pleasure of being comfortable. However when I saw this gingham top at TJMAXX I simply couldn’t walk away from it. It screams every fashion trend currently being followed. It’s off the shoulder, it’s the “it” pattern, and it’s flowy. Perfect for summer.

The black and white pattern was paired with my favorite pair of black jeans from Forever 21 and this lovely necklace was worn as a good stand out color. Of course it had to be red.

As I struggle to find motivation this summer, I’ve realized that instead of making all these plans (that aren’t going to be accomplished), I’m going to take each day as it comes. This weekend I spent the majority of the time shopping with my mom and helping my dad around the house. It wasn’t planned, but man did it feel good to actually do something with my life. I crave summer break every March, but then at the end of June I can’t wait for August and school to be in full swing. It’s that time my friends.

Until then and as always.

Weekend Vibes

Although it’s the weekend, sadly I’m reporting that I’ll be Micahless until Monday. He’s off to visit his family in central Kansas. While he’s gone, I’d hope to accomplish a billion things, but nope. I’ve done absolutely nothing. It’s what I do best.

I have been beating the heat in these shorts and detailed top that was a gift from my mom. Some days are better than others in this heat. Today it’s been close to 100 degrees. Yesterday was still windy. Summer in Kansas is unpredictable as most weather conditions are here. As of right how it’s clear skies, sun, and dry heat.

While Micah is out fishing with his family, I’m inside enjoying the cool AC. I’ll see you back on Monday. I’m sending you weekend vibes. As always.
