I’ve been in a vacation mood lately, thinking about somewhere i haven’t been before, well you can guess? HAWAII! I have been watching to many vintage travel films and TV shows (not to mention that Brady Bunch Episode) . I picked up this beautiful Kimono a week ago, and fell in love with the colors and the “Aloha” written on, so i thought id put together a fun vintage Hawaii look! Enjoy.

Hello, Longtime no see, I know I know. You were probably wondering where I have been hiding? Well life, got kinda crazy but I am back in full swing- reposting new looks and hopefully some new looks, plus I am working on alot more projects and now have motivation to post more looks, and work harder at this blog because I have been thinking about this blog and what it means to me and I’ve been thinking it’s time to work harder and post more awesome stuff, including inspiration, the blog itself will be getting a make-over soon I promise, a lot of new attitudes for the blog, because it is my project and my outlet to express my sense of fashion, being from the mid west it’s hard to find people here that share my love of fashion and my like of clothing, plus life has been crazy! I hope you can understand my time away from the blog, but it feels great to be back. I hope you are here to stay with me-
Hey Guys! Welcome to Sunday Funday! Thanks for again joining me for some fun. Today I was on my way to a partay for my cousin who got married yesterday so I wanted to choose Warm, but yet Casual. In my family we are big on thrifting, especially me if you know from reading my blog. So I took my butt to Salvation Army yesterday and found these amazing Slim-fit straight pants in a rich blue color that I fell in love with! I also found a sparkly sweater that I fell in love with and have been dying to wear this vintage clock necklace (YO’ FLAVA FLAV YEAHHHH! BOIIII). Also found this great locket last night that I wanted to wear. I had so much fun pairing neon accents with a casual look (see, I told you all neon rules!). I am also loving this little cute, clutch I sported all day, it was an awesome find last night too! I can’t believe the weekend is all over! I hope you enjoyed this shorty posting, and I cant wait til next weekend’s fun! xx

We ran at 8am this morning. and I’ve been pretty tired for the rest of the day, i ended up at a graduation this afternoon and had to throw on some clothes, and i came up with this fun mint outfit, one of my favorite summer dresses that i pulled out.

Hey There! Its my 5th posting! I am really loving this playing dress up, and photographing it, i mean who doesn’t love that? It’s fun! Ok so today is sunday, i had a bit of trouble this morning with my car and didn’t make it to where i was going so i decided to blog instead. I have a little bit more modern fun look here, and i definitely bring it to a level of fun. These colors are usually a step away from my normal bright colors but i love this dress so much , that i decided to push it and where it (even though its like 100 degrees outside) I still wore it. I still struggle with my image, believe me, but i think i did a great job in my opinion I’m gonna rock it and get it down!
