Maxi Cool

Dress- Marshall's | Vest- J. Crew | Shoes- Jack Rogers College Collection | Tosha Necklace- c/o Kendra Scott | Dream Bracelet- Lord and Taylor | Belt- Ralph Lauren via Lord and Taylor | Earrings- c/o Accessory Mercado | Bag- Anthropologie | Sunglasses- Bobby Jones
These days I seem to be all about accessories! From statement earrings to statement necklaces to everything in between. I decided to break from what's becoming my normal routine--statement necklaces--and wear this delicate one from Kendra Scott instead. The color and the length are perfect, and added just the right pop of color to my look!

And I can't help but point out the coloring of these earrings...or did you already notice? Orange and blue?! :) Yes please! Accessory Mercado has me ALLL set for UVa, yessir.

My other newest purchase isn't actually seen here. But you all know I love this army vest from J. Crew, just based on how often I wear it, right? Well, I got the jacket version of it from J. Crew the other day on SUPER sale. Gotta love good sales. Perhaps when it's a bit cooler I'll show that off to you as well!

Firefly Day 2 Outfit

Top- Kohl's | Flower Crown- Love Culture | Shoes- Converse | Necklaces- Macy's, c/o Vanessa Mooney | Sunglasses- c/o Giant Vintage
Firefly Day 2 was even better than Day 1 because I got to meet one of the coolest bands ever...Grouplove! They're with Katie and I in the second picture. Day 2 also included Imagine Dragons (my fave band ever) and Outkast (who had a stellar late night performance). Music festivals are just magical...I'd highly recommend them to anyone interested in music, fashion, and having a good time!

Thanks to Katie for mastering photography long enough to take these pictures! I think she did pretty well, yeah? Also, you'll have to forgive me for going "basic white girl" on y'all with the flower crown. I was at a festival--I felt the need to. Secretly, I actually like flower crowns, and you may remember me modeling for my good friend Lauren's shop, Echoing Waters, for the past few years. But she's moved to Virginia sadly so that won't be happening anymore (although perhaps it will, once I'm at school!), so I've had to channel my inner hippie elsewhere. Going to a preppy private school for high school...and heading to a preppy public one for college...are not quite the right scenes to be wearing things like flower crowns. So I have to let my inner hippie out only at the right times. And this seemed like the perfect one!

Firefly Day 1 Outfit

Dress- Forever 21 | Bandeau- Aerie | Shoes- Converse | Sunglasses- c/o Giant Vintage | Watch- gifted | Bullet Necklace- c/o Adriana Soto | Earrings- Kohl's | Dream Bracelet- Lord and Taylor | Headband- Forever 21 | Pink leather bracelet- c/o Torn to Pieces
Here's what I wore on Day 1 of the three days I spent at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. My friend Katie and I (both rising First-Year Jeff Scholars at UVa) camped out and and enjoyed free drinks and extra perks because we had Press Passes. I also had a new experience...and that would be PUMPING MY OWN GAS! As a Jersey girl, I've never pumped gas before...so losing my gas-pumping virginity was a big big deal! Had to take a picture, obviously.

Wearing a short dress could be considered risky at a concert...especially because I was jumping up and down to the beat, sitting in the grass, and more. My secret? I ALWAYS wear spandex, a.k.a. athletic compression sports, underneath my dresses and skirts! It eliminates all my worry and let's me go about the day without having to check to make sure my butt isn't showing. Came in handy at Firefly, for sure!

Probably my favorite part of my outfit is the sunglasses. I've been wearing exclusively Giant Vintage sunglasses for about two years now, and just a day before Firefly got in a whole new shipment! This pair was my favorite--and they were glued to my face all weekend long! They are just SO festival-perfect. I love the flirty look of heart-shaped sunglasses and will definitely be breaking these out again this summer. Can't wait to show you the other pairs they sent me! HURRAY FOR GIANT VINTAGE

Blue Crystal + FLASH SALE Week 2!

Top- Forever 21 | Vest- Asos c/o Chicnova  | Shoes- Kohl's | Necklace- c/o Accessory Mercado | Sunglasses- c/o Giant Vintage | Skirt- Urban Outfitters | Earrings- Kohl's
On Monday I got my wisdom teeth out --the first surgery I've ever had and honestly, much better than I was expecting! I'm super scared of needles so I was very nervous for the shots, and of course for the digging of four giant teeth out of my mouth. But the laughing gas eased my worries and I was totally out for all of the surgery so I don't remember a thing! It's been a little painful for the last few days, and I'm a GIANT chipmunk (these pictures are from last week!) but overall, much better than I was expecting. Maybe I just worry too much :)

Anyways, I'm excited to share that the FLASH SALE IS BACK! You may have shopped with Accessory Mercado last week and I'm here to tell you you can do it again! The promo code remains the same "WEARABOUT10" but this week I'm going to clarify exactly how to shop.

There are two main ways:
1) You can shop on AccessoryMercado.com and use the promo code "WEARABOUT10" at checkout to get an additional 10% off!

2) You can shop the flash sale found on the Accessory Mercado Facebook Page, HERE. The 10% off code works here as well, but use it when you check out, not in the comments! Be sure to follow the steps below to successfully get something from the sale :)
