You know when you're in one of those moods? And everything just seems AWESOME? I'm in one of those moods. And with good reason(s)! Everything seems to be coming together for me right now: my room is (almost) finished, I finished the school year with straight As for the first time in my high school career, and I found out today that I scored a 5 (the highest score!) on the AP US history (aka APUSH) exam that I took back in May. I worked so hard for it...and I am SO GLAD that it has paid off! Life is good.

And to top it off, today is my 6th month blogiversary! Yep, my little baby blog is half a year old. And to celebrate, as some of you may have seen on my Twitter and Facebook, I'm switching platforms and changing up my design. I'm no HTML guru, so I'm switching to blogger where customizations are simple and polished. The domain name will still be the same, but my blog will look slightly different and I'll have google friend connect! That should be launching this week, so bear with me as this site may be down for a bit!

To top THAT off, I'm going to Ikea today to buy some finishing touches for my closet room (who doesn't love going to Ikea??). These pictures were actually taken in that room because it's so scorching hot outside! I apologize for my frizzy hair (THIS IS THE FIRST BLOG POST WITH MY HAIR UP...can you see why? :) ), and for the bad lighting, yada yada yada.

And now about the look...kept it simple in a pleated skirt and tied up breezy top with a bandeau underneath. In the summer, it's all about staying cool and layering is not an option...unless you've got yourself a bandeau!

So I'll post pictures for you of my closet once it's TOTALLY done. And I'm off to Ikea now...not sure if I'll be posting soon thanks to the switch to blogger but I hope I will be!

THANK YOU to all of you have read this blog for the past six months! IT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME!

Love you all :)

  4. The orange pleated skirt looks great with the black printed shirt, and it really pops against your purple walls! :)

    Have fun shopping at Ikea :)

  5. Oh hey, that purple wall makes such an awesome backdrop! And I even like the rug. They complement your outfit just perfectly! Very cute top and skirt... I would like to steal so many of the pieces you have, you know that? Guess that's because we shop at tons of the same places, just like you said! So I'll be taking that top and skirt... :D

  32. That's so weird the Romwe shorts were too small for you! I'm a size 0, not much smaller than you, and they fit me really well! Maybe the sizing was off on yours or something!

    Anyway, this outfit is so cute as always! I love your blouse and the necklace, so pretty!

  35. I remember how excited I was on all my blog anniversaries...and still am! So exciting, congrats! I have a gorg skirt like yours from French Connection that is pleated and just to die for. They are lovely and elegant.

    P.S. Yes, I am vegan! It is tricky but I do it to stay healthy/I am allergic to gluten/lactose. Definitely something I would recommend to anyone, unless you love sweets!

  44. Thanks! My mix comes from songs I already listen to on my iTunes- my other hobby is researching and finding, cool new music. I LOVE MUSIC! Some of the songs are inspired by my boyfriend- who has been showing me a lot of new music... Buddy Holly, Tom Waits, Bowie, The Turtles, The Zombies and The Velvet Underground (50's/60's/90's music!)-- the rest is mine! :) Glad you liked it!!
