Pink and Leopard + a hair tutorial!

I guess I just wanted to go for bright colors with this outfit 🙂 These are some of my favorite pants (I have them in two colors! because I love the color and they’re sooo comfortable), and what better way to top it off than with animal print!

Of course this is an Anthropologie neckace…they have the cutest jewelry right now. It’s all so bright and fun to mix and match with.

Top -J.Crew; Pants – Anthropologie; Necklace – Anthropologie; Watch – Michael Kors; Earrings – Anthropologie; Shoes – Steve Madden.

Another super simple way to do your hair or summer:

All you do is:

– curl your hair…as tight or loose as you want.

– twist pieces starting at the top (next to your part) to the back, gathering hair as you go. do this on each side.

– then clip your hair in the back. if you use an elastic it will probably come loose or fall out. a clip secures it a little bit better.

– i did it in a low pony, but you could do it as high or low as you want!

Statement Earrings – Jennifer Meyer Bar Earrings and more

Statement Jewelry is so popular right now. I love it because you can wear the most boring outfit and throw on earrings like the ones below or a great necklace and it can transform it! (not that you have to wear it with a boring outfit!) I just think that sometimes jewelry can make or break an outfit.

A Spring Day in Paris – Louis Vuitton Silk and Ostrich Feather Dress

Light mints, sweet melons, and cool creams seem to be designed after a box of tasty macaroons. Yum yum. These lovely designs make me feel like grabbing a box of them, and strolling under the Eiffel Tower with a little lace parasol. These sweet candy looks and pouffy cotton candy effects deliver such a girlish vibe, that is quite refreshing! I love it!

Kristin’s June Photoaday

I got bored of doing the regular Photoaday’s so I thought I would just put together some of my photos from what I have been doing lately and things I thought were worth taking pictures of. So here is my life!

A pretty sunset driving home the other day.

Zebras and sparkles (both from Forever 21)

I was having a horrible day at work and the girls went and got me these gorgeous flowers! They made my office smell amazing! Check out of the picture below to see them blooming the day after!

Going to a baby shower…hearts! (From Piperlime)

Going on a little run. I’m always getting teased for matching, but I don’t care! #atleastiwontgethitbyacar (Shorts – Old Navy, Shoes – Nike)

My friend, Kandace, posted this on Instagram the other day and I’m still heartbroken over it! Gossip Girl’s last season! What am I going to do with my life! Where am I going to get fashion inspiration and what am I going to blog about? haha I sound so pathetic, but it’s my favorite thing!

Harem Pants – Forever 21 Gold and Black

I bought these pants a couple months ago because I thought they were so fun and comfy, but then I got super nervous to wear them because the harem pant trend scared me! I thought these ones were great, because they aren’t too baggy and the print is not out of control, plus getting them at Forever 21 you’re never spending too much money. I think that certain styles of them are adorable, but some of them are hideous and I definitely think it depends on how you wear them. So I went the safe route and just wore them with a plain tee. How do you think I did? I got the approval from my trusted style friend, but I thought I would reach out to my readers! yay or nay?!?

I think I like them a lot! I hope I’m not wrong!

Pants – Forever 21; Shirt – Urban Outfitters Tee; Shoes – Sam Edelman; Watch – Michael Kors; Necklace – J.Crew Elephant Critter; Bracelet – Forever 21; Earrings – American Eagle
