I swear this blog isn't turning into one big Urban Outfitters ad, but I really just can't turn down an opportunity to work with a brand I genuinely love. So UO is road trippin' this month & what better place for some road trip scenery than the countryside? When I saw these dandelions, it was a match made in sartorial heaven. This golden yellow dress reminds me of one I had as a kid & I mean, who doesn't love a 90's ditsy floral print?

urban outfitters x swimwear part 2.

UrbanOutfittersBlackWhiteLaceBikini

Some black & whites of some black & whites. I'm all about a good piece void of any color but not void of interesting details. This Blue Life x Urban Outfitters teeny bikini serves up a side of sexy with the lace detail on top combined with an overall sporty edge. Proof that simplicity doesn't always have to mean boring.

Today is that day that comes once a year where you're supposed to celebrate being another year older for some reason that's always been lost on me. Rather, I've always spent my birthdays reflecting on the year past & dreaming about the year ahead. Last year, was a year of clarity. It was a year of 'yes' & risks & not looking back. & now I'm looking forward to what this next year might bring. Hopefully it brings more platform Spice Girl sandals. That would be dope.

Well guys, after spending the last month doing some serious soul searching, this is the post where I announce I've just moved back to Pennsylvania. NYC is an amazing city & will always hold a special place in my heart, but when it comes down to it, there are certain things in my life that I'm not willing to compromise, like my happiness & authenticity. & there was a lot of faux starting to creep into my life in a way where I couldn't just turn the other cheek. Not my thing, dudes. & I think that's all that I care to say on that. I will say, I am an incredibly lucky lady. Through this process, I've realized how many people I have in my life who are truly genuine. & that certainly is worth its weight in gold. It's crazy to think how sometimes it takes something so negative to make us really value the positives. So cheers to taking chances & always being on the pursuit of happiness & to realizing that sometimes it's been there all along.

Part numero uno of a fun little swimwear piece I'm doing with Urban Outfitters. Despite my translucent color, lounging poolside or letting my unfortunate country roots show while drinking Budweiser's in the river, is one of my favorite ways to unwind in the summer months. I've always been a bikini clad kind of gal, but I couldn't help myself from picking-out this unique little one-piece by Kore. Pastel colors juxtaposed with sheer mesh panels totally caught my eye. & with my white stomach covered, will totally save on those SPF 80 costs.

I've been lost in a k-hole of black jeans only this winter since moving. I didn't realize it was a problem until coming home & my mom calling me out for it after stalking me via my blog. "Switch it up!" she said. Then I went to unpack the few things I brought with me & another realization was upon me: I only brought 3 pairs of black jeans. Well, shit. But you guys, there's high-waisted black jeans, ripped black jeans, cropped black jeans... they're all different! Or maybe I'm an addict trying to justify.
