Remixed Mint Shorts

I'm back!...I'll eventually stop starting every post with that and actually blog regularly. Why does blogging get so hard when life gets a tad busier? I don't like it. Since my last post, I got an iPad. I tell you this because I was really hoping I'd be able to blog with it, but I haven't found a way yet. If anyone knows if there's an app that will let me post on my blog from my iPad, please let me know!

This outfit is kind of the result of me trying to stay somewhat fashionable when it's hot outside. I know I've said it before, but it is HARD. It seems like belts & jewelry are going to be redeeming many borderline-too-simple outfits this summer. Last time I wore these shorts, it was May and not warm at all. I think this is the first time I've shown something twice on my blog actually. Yay remixing! :)

Any tips to staying fashionable in the heat?

Subtly Feathered

These photos are from me and Mary's second downtown outfit shoot/apartment hunting/general summer fun day. I probably could've made that less confusing but I'm on the verge of falling asleep and I set today as my deadline for getting this post up. Must. Blog. Not that it's not something I don't love doing, it just tends to fall to the wayside(what does that even mean?) when life gets a bit too hectic. I'm sure lots of you know what I mean. :)

As you can see it was a beautiful day, so an outfit photo shoot was definitely necessary. Oh, and you might be wondering about the name of this post. My necklace and shirt have feathers on them, so 'subtly feathered' it was. I swear, naming posts can be the hardest part of getting a blog post up. 

Quick note about summer dressing: it's HARD. I find that it's so much harder to be creative and fun with my fashion in the summer, since well..I'm wearing less articles of clothing. I might have to start wearing *gasp* dresses! Nothing against them, it's just never been my thing. But since I'm itching to expand my summer clothes options, I may just have to dust off the dresses I have.

One more thing and I'm off to bed: I would kill for this weather again(okay, not quite). Today I'm wearing pants, long sleeves, a scarf, and a jacket...come ON, it's JUNE! Coldest summer ever. Okay, I'm done now. Not blogging for awhile leads to some long posts!

Super pretty flowers at our favorite lakefront coffee shop :)
Mary in her adorably summery getup!
The cute little path we shot our photos at..although there was some sketchy yelling and whatnot further down so we stayed near the top haha.

Tribal Summer

 Finally a summer outfit! It's been so nice out lately, that I'm just waiting for a crappy day. I don't think it's sunk in that it's June yet. So crazy. I have to admit that finally wearing shorts was a bit scary considering my legs are blindingly white, but shorts are the only way they're going to get tan, right? 

I ended up knotting this shirt because i didn't realize how weirdly it was shaped when I bought it. I think I just really liked the design on the front so I didn't pay attention to how awkward it looked on haha. Knotting it fixed that problem though!

I hope you have weather as nice as this where ever you are :)

Roomie Shoot #1!

This post is super late. We shot these a week ago. Oops! I knew it was getting ridiculous when I had 3 more outfits already shot, and I hadn't posted these yet, haha. You can definitely tell it was a week ago because the temperatures have changed quite a bit since then. I've been wearing shorts and tanks lately :) Anyways, this was me and Mary's first outfit shoot together! I seriously can not wait til we can shoot each others outfits all the time when we move in together at the end of summer! There's endless awesome locations downtown too, including this park overlooking the lake. We spent the day eating delicious food(refer to tempura snap peas & cupcakes below..YUM), browsing some shops, and taking each others photos! It was a blast.

Mary looking adorable as usual :) 
..Can you tell how insanely windy is was in the next 2 pictures? haha.
