Summer Heat and Bright Colors

Just recently bought both the dress and sweater from H&M! The sweater was on sale for only $15 and the dress was a mere $17! Such great finds for the summer. I need more bright colors in my wardrobe, since when I moved to New York somehow everything I wore became black or strange haha. Even though it is quite hot to be wearing a sweater, the crochet design on this one allows for some air and isn't uncomfortable to wear in the scorching hot weather we've been having.

Other than that, I leave for Korea in almost exactly a week! I am beyond excited! I have been listening to k-pop on repeat all month, watching the Korean variety show "We Got Married", as well as watching the amazing drama A Love to Kill, staring Rain. <3 Needless to say, I think I am prepared to be in Seoul! I have also been brushing up on the little Korean I know, but I have many Korean friends to help me get around, and I'll definitely need their help...haha. I have been trying to hold off on buying anything since I know that Korea has great, cheap clothes! Last time I was there I was overwhelmed by all the little shops and adorable clothes! Let's hope that I don't go broke... Well, until next time!

Let the wind take me away

lace tunic- Forever 21
black skirt- H&M
belt- mom's closet
necklace- Forever 21

I just bought this lovely lace tunic from Forever 21! It is so lovely and I can see myself incorporating it into outfits in a number of different ways, and this is the first look I put together with it. =) The necklace is quite old (and rusting =(..) but I absolutely love it, even if it no longer can tell the time correctly. I stole the belt from my mom's wardrobe a few years back and wear it all the time haha. It was quite windy outside, making taking photos a bit difficult, but also fun. I love windy days here in my hometown! As for windy days in the city, however, I cannot stand them! I can never see where I am going since my hair always gets in the way...I have a love hate relationship with the wind haha. Well that is all for today!

Give Yourself Away

Today was quite uneventful, however I am all caught up with True Blood, including last night's new episode, and I am going through withdrawal. I finished seasons 1 and 2 in about 2 days, and although I feel lazy as anything for watching so much TV, I love love love the show and could not stop watching! I now have to wait until Sunday for a new episode, but at least I can keep up with all the talk and not have to worry about someone spoiling something for me! Besides True Blood, I have started posting looks on Chictopia! Although the system somewhat confuses me, it seems like a very welcoming site thus far! Well here is my outfit today!

blouse- thrifted
skirt- Urban Outfitters
tights- H&M

Tangerine Trees and Marmalade Skies

This is one of the five, yes five, outfits I wore today. I can't seem to make up my mind about what to wear when it is so unbearably hot outside! I don't really own any clothes appropriate for the weather, but this outfit sufficed for the hour or so I wore it. In other events, I have been reading Silvia Plath's The Bell Jar. It is great so far, and I cannot wait to get farther into the story! Other than that my life has been video games. <3 Final Fantasy XIII is amazing! I am replaying Kingdom Hearts II as well. Oh, and I guess I socialize occasionally? haha That's about all for now!
