Truly Madly Deeply

This shirt has been haunting me at Urban Outfitters for weeks. Want, want, want. Should I spend that much on a tee shirt? No — I should wait for it to go on sale. I so didn’t. That’s the advantage of having birthday money — you can spend it on fun items just because! I’m not sure what grabbed here but it was love at first sight. It just looked so cool hanging there. Notice I had to tie knots in the bottom because I’m so short! Apparently the woman behind me in line at TJ Maxx wasn’t so enamoured of said shirt when I was wearing it a few days later. She actually almost yelled at me! She exclaimed, “What the hell are you wearing? That’s no way for a young lady to go out in public! You can’t do any better?” I just giggled.

Sunset in the Secret Garden

There’s a special little place in the front of mum and dad’s house that mum calls the secret garden. She read the book to me when I was young. We had some time before supper to take pictures as the sun was setting and figured it was the perfect place. I couldn’t resist this cute egg hatching a baby dinosaur — too whimsical!

I found this cobalt blue top and immediately thought about wearing it with my Jimmy Choo sandals. I don’t get to wear them that often and even though we weren’t going anywhere fancy I decided to go for it. I figured wearing them with distressed jeans would dress them down a little. I love mixing fancy things with distressed jeans or something really casual. It just makes them that much cooler.

The New Girl(s)

I know. It’s been a while. Sorry about that. I had to take some time to recover from my most recent surgery. After almost a year since my breast cancer diagnosis I’m ready to introduce you to the new girls. I finally have my permanent implants and after seeing 27 doctors (OK, slight exaggeration) this week, it looks as if I’m healthy! It’s also so much easier to get dressed! While I’m not completely done, I’m hoping the worst is behind me and I can start to get my life back.

This outfit has a couple trends encompassed within. A crop top and boyfriend jeans. I have to admit that the crop top trend sent shivers down my spine. Really? I’m not one to walk around half naked! Done properly, or at least what I deem to be appropriately, I’ve found that it can actually be cute. This top, for example sticks with my whole “flowy” personality and barely shows any midriff unless you catch a breeze. Even then, only the slightest sliver of skin pops out. Perfect! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect loose, comfy boyfriend jeans for a while. Believe it or not — Gap! Haven’t been in there in ages, but I’m so in love with these. The looseness and the shredding is also a much cooler (literally, as in temperature) option for summer. Buy them a size too big for extra effect.

I Gave In

I swore I would never wear Birkenstocks. They’re hippie shoes. I’m not a hippie. I lied! I kept seeing them on people and thinking — not gonna happen! Well… it happened. It actually happened more than once, as you’ll soon see, but these are the first ones I’m sharing with all of you. Of course I had to be just a little bit different. I went for the shiny black patent ones. They were actually really hard to find, especially in my little size! The rest of the outfit is from Zara. I can’t believe I was so slow getting on that wagon. Figures that the only store remotely near me is now closed for renovations for about 3 months. Now what?
