Talk about the back

Tomorrow I return to work. While I’m excited to start the new school year, I’m also anxious, nervous, and a bit on the unmotivated side of things. It’s year five for me, but something inside of me still wants to be in Mexico.

So while the realization of school starting back up is more than real and I can’t physically be in my motherland, these pictures will have to suffice.

These pictures take me back to the endless hours of walking through these woods that sit behind my grandparent’s home. Micah and I would explore this area and enjoy our love quietly, holding hands.

On this day I wore this pretty and simple top from the Buckle. It’s pretty long so my white shorts are appear invisible sometimes, which I liked. I typically wouldn’t wear something like this in Dodge because my students would look at me strangely. But I took advantage of being away from the noise to wear this daring top. My favorite part is the back side. I enjoyed the cutout detail and how I was able to flaunt a little more of my back than usual.

My sandals are Skechers. I bought them especially for the mission trip. They are EVERYTHING! I wore them everyday because of their comfort and design. They were also on sale for $19.99. Oh joy! You’ll be seeing them on here more than you’d like.

With school starting on Monday, my time blogging will simmer down, but don’t forget about me. I’ll post often. As always.

Long and Plaid

I can be into plaid shirts living out in the country, so naturally when I saw this long and plaid shirt from Forever 21, I had to snag it. I enjoy every aspect of this shirt because it can be worn so many different ways. From a unique aspect, I believe that the length helps separate it from the traditional plaid shirts. In addition the color gives off more of a rock in roll vibe versus a country take.

Aside from that, a tiny victory is my hair length. I’ve changed my hair routine and since then I’ve seen some minor results. I’m pleased with it. I’ll share the secret soon.

Micah and I are going to the pool tomorrow and I’ll be sharing what I wore to the water park tomorrow on the blog. Stay tune. 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.

In the detail

On this windy and hot day I present you this lovely Zara top.

There is so much perfection coming from this top, from the detail in the sleeves to the wonderful embroidery that’s tiny and precise. In addition to everything nice about this top, I absolutely love that’s it’s completely versatile. Today I paired it with black shorts I purchased at Target, but I’m also thinking you’ll see it on here in different ways. Stay tune.

I also love these sandals I purchased from Shoe Dazzle awhile ago. They are the perfect blend of cool and summer. As always.

Wedding season

Sorry for my absence, I have been a busy girl. I literally have been working night and day, but I’ve been dreaming clothes, shoes, and¬†jewelry. It’s been a rough week, but there has been a lot of things that have inspired me. Lets forget about my week of no-show and focus a little more on the fact that I’ve been hearing wedding bells. Ah, yes! Wedding season is here and I’ve been invited to attend an old friend’s. The big date is in about 2 or 3 weeks. I’ve been on the prowl for the perfect dress. But, I haven’t fell in love– just yet.

Below are a couple of dresses that have been lingering in my mind for the past days. It’s been crazy because I fell in love with this website: modcloth.com and I kid you not, every single dress, is dear.

Check out the site and my top 4 choices. Plus give me your input! I need it. As always,
