You know when you’re supposed to be writing about your life, but then your life just seems like a big empty pot hole that my dad once lost a tire in?

My dad does have a habit of talking to me while cruising along the road at 0.00001 miles per hour and then suddenly driving into a pot hole, or whatever they’re called. Maybe if he went faster, the car wouldn’t shake so much as he drove “over” them. Then again, he misses motorcycles. Who knows?

Yesterday I went to NYC, though I don’t know if it was really yesterday because I lose track of time way too easily. That’s a problem, you know. The last time I actually bothered googling it, it was June 11 or something like that. By now it’s probably June 14th or so. I don’t know, and I’m not Googling it again. That’s final. Anyways, I stopped by Uniqlo on my way home. I have to say, I knew Uniqlo had fashionable but yet cheap clothing, but I had no clue that it was this cheap. I got the yellow-print crop shirt for about six dollars. I have to say, that wasn’t so bad. The other two were ten dollars each, which also isn’t such a heartache.

This is the yellow-print crop that I’m talking about.

I also bought these:

WOMEN CELIA BIRTWELL SHORTS

The two dumplings up there would make a nice combination, I’ll give it in. I also made an outfit out of the print top and some shorts that I found lying around. I think I wore those shorts twice before, but that’s it. They were actually really comfortable and chic at the same time, so I’m definitely going to wear them again. And since I’m a very repetitive person, I wore those flower sandals again. Aren’t I such a bad girl?

What I Wore:
  • Birkenstock “Papillion” sandals
  • Diane von Furstenburg shorts
  • Uniqlo high-low shirt (“Slub” collection)

And I will confess to using a fake paper flower that my mom helped me make a jillion years ago.

You Can’t Stop Being a Kid

Not even when I try, can I stop from just being a baby in one of those at-the-bottom button-open jammies. At least this jumper doesn’t have a diaper button opening that babies need. At least.

You know that backyard fashion show I talked about two posts ago, the one that I did with my friends? Well anyways, I found another outfit that belonged to it. After ransacking my closet, which looked like a tornado before but now is a beyond-recognition tornado, I discovered this DVF jumper from a while ago. I paired it up with my old Converse sneakers, and tried to find some nice sunglasses but discovered that my dog had mistaken mine for her squeaky toy, so I had to make do with $2 party-favor sunglasses. Oh well. On my wrist, I wore another party favor, but this time it was a purple BFF bracelet, and added a dark blue friendship bracelet.

By the way: the pink ball is a lacrosse ball.

What I really love about this outfit are the gorgeous patterns. They somehow clash, but in the end, they make peace perfectly. It’s still a mystery to me how I managed to figure out that this would work. I guess accidents do sometimes happen!

The jumper was surprisingly comfortable and really light on me. This outfit is a definite wear again!

 

Yours only,

Sophie

They Came From:

  • Jumper: Diane von Furstenburg
  • Sneakers: Converse [navy blue lace-less]
  • Sunglasses and BFF bracelet: cheap party favors that no one usually cares about
  • Friendship bracelet: A gift
  • Balls: The orange is from Target, the pink is a lacrosse game ball

I Can’t Think of a Title…

So, yeah… I can’t think of a title. Once again. Since I cut my hair five inches shorter, it’s been ticking me off that my new hair length just doesn’t look “right” somehow, if you know what I mean. Oh well. At least it doesn’t get knotted.

Anyways, I thought I’d do another outfit post since I had my own little backyard “fashion show” with my friends a few days ago, and still have the pictures.

I seriously, seriously love the dress. It’s not only comfortable, but also really cute and in style. You can really pair it up with almost anything, because of the fabric pattern. As well as that, it has a fabulous, flowy, “free” kind of feeling to it that makes it perfect for summer.

I chose to pair up the dress with just a pretty old pair of ballet flats that still aren’t out of style. I wonder if the gorgeous hot pink has something to with it.

Where These Came From

  • Dress: Diane von Furstenburg
  • Shoes (Flats): Gap

Only yours,

I’m Outta the Ball Game

Good to see you, too! Trust me, since the last time I posted, barely anything has happened to me other than school graduation, but everybody knows that that is “not” important (this is the part you should go haha at my lame joke!)

I’m writing this post while listening to “I Love It”, and since the song is so addicting, I am probably going to take a LONG time.

I think this was just the inspirational word of the day after graduation on Monday. I wore a white, really simple J.Crew dress with “gems” on the collar, along with silver ballet flats that contrasted my tan (if I may say so myself).

Below are pictures of what I wore today to the city. I kind of stood out, since everyone was wearing dark colors (yes, in the heat), but I don’t care at all. I loved this outfit and will absolutely wear it again! By the way: the pictures order messed up a little, so the full outfit is on the bottom and the details are on the top…

The dress (did I mention this yet?) is from J.Crew, and has little oranges for the print, as you probably saw already. I love how it’s snug and button-down for the top half, and free, loose, and comfy on the bottom half. It came with the rope belt, though you can take it off, and the dress also looks great without it.
I paired the dress up with a CrewCuts necklace from years ago, and Birkenstock “Papillion” sandals that are SUPER comfortable and that I will definitely be wearing again! For a final little touch, I added some of those tie-off hair bands that are so in trend this week but probably will be out of the picture next week. I decided to enjoy them while I could, and used them as bracelets.
