It was such a beautiful day outside! To bad it was spent all day in an office. But at least we get out of work early on Friday to get a head start on the long weekend! I'm just hoping the wonderful weather holds out. The boyfriend and I plan on hitting up the beach this Saturday and on Sunday we are having a picnic with one of my friends and her bf to watch the 4th of July Fireworks. I'm pretty excited about this weekend! Lots of sun and relaxing. Although we need to figure out what we are bringing to the picnic! Hmmm time to get creative. Any ideas? Any picnic foods you guys really enjoy???

But today I have brought you my inspiration for the day: Oxfords. I'm really loving oxfords. I just like how they go with almost everything. They give an outfit character and a little bit of casualness. They can be paired up with anything from a dress to harem pants.

I was feeling pretty mellow yellow today. HAHA. Forgot to take pictures with my new flip flops from Target :(
This past weekend has been crazy busy. My boyfriend and I saw 3 apartments yesterday and went to Target. Today we saw a couple apartments in a brand new condo building and did laundry. I'll tell you what apartment shopping is hard work. Tomorrow we have another viewing on an apartment after work.
I'm so pooped! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Shirt: my mom's old shirt
Sandals: Urban Outfitters
I'm truly in love with this bag. This was my recent purchase from H&M! It was only $10!!! They are having a MEGA sale and everything ranges from $10 to $20! How could you not find something that you just love? I've also had this Roxy dress for a very long time and it's always the best thing to wear during a really hot day. It's so light and airy. It's also a tube top so not very work appropriate but with an easy fix like throwing an old cut off top and tie it up it's no problem.
Tomorrow is Friday thank god!! My boyfriend and I are looking to move out of our apt so we are going apt hunting this weekend. So far we have one apt viewing and a possible one lined up on Saturday. Very excited!
Does anyone have any great plans for the weekend??
Vingtage Saddle Oxfords $24.80

This pale/blush dress looks studding on her. It's the perfect night out dress for the summer: pale, short, and simple. Her peep satin toe shoes pull the whole look together.
In order to get this look pick a corset top dress that doesn't flow into one piece, try a dress that looks like separates. The Alice + Olivia dress is a two toned dress and is made to look like a top with a skirt. Here are a couple of dress ideas:
With this you have the choice to choose from what color top you want to what color bottom you want. For a fun summer look you can do a floral printed top with a bright skirt, like look 2 above. Or you can stick with neutral colors like in the first look above. Even some of us already have these in our closet why not try pairin the two up together.

Bangles: Charlotte Russe
Yes I turned my old skirt into a dress which worked out great. I wore my little H&M vest over it to make it more work appropriate. The only problem with this dress/skirt is that it's a little flimsy and the slightest bit of breezy would blow it up, so I basically had to hold it down while I walked.
I ended up going to H&M during lunch which was a little mistake. Who knew they are having their summer sale! Everything is basically from $10 to $20. I bought pants, a bag, and a shirt which all came out to $35! Amazing! I'm such a bargin hunter. Also I plan on hitting up the Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale tomorrow.

My summer must haves:
Every girl needs a sun dress. A cute simple floral dress for the summer is perfect for a picnic or a walk in the park. It's even a great beach dress. A simple tunic for those hot summer days where you don't feel like wearing a lot of clothing. Also, another great simple wear to the beach. The perfect bathing suit for you. No matter what your body type is or what bathing suit you wear. Whatever feels sexiest on you is a must for the beach, pool, and/or lake. Lace tank tops which you can wear with a bathing suit top underneath or a cute bandeau. Every girl needs the classic jean shorts. Doesn't matter what kind they are a must have for summer. They are something that will never go out of style! Rompers and jumpers are a must because they are just as easy as dresses and tunics. Another classic must have are flip flops. Wedges are totally in for the summer. Go with a beige/brown wedge sandal this summer. Wooden accessories like wooden bangles to give your summer look a more earthly look. Also, chunky rings but leave the jewelry at home when going swimming! Also a fun necklace like the Garden Gazebo Pendant from modcloth.com and a pastel jewelry like the BCBGMAXAZRIA watch. For the beach or picnic you need a classic tote bag to carry all the esstentials. The perfect bag for the day or night is a little shoulder bag to carry around your wallet, keys, and lip gloss. Minimal for summer is always perfect. Of course pastel nails. And last but not least over sized sunglasses!
