Summer Dreamin'

The countdown to summer break has officially begun! There are only 34 more days left of my semester. I'm always excited for summer because it is my favorite season and I get to enjoy 3 months with my family. However, I am especially looking forward to this summer because I will be interning for a great fashion company on the coast. I am so honored to be given this opportunity and I plan to learn as much as I can while I'm there. The condo I will be living in is also about 10 minutes from the beach. I get to spend my summer learning about fashion while living at the beach. I am one lucky girl! I've been thinking of about the perfect summer wardrobe. Here are some items that I would like to be wearing:

For an Afternoon on the Beach 

Cropped Cover Up Tank
dELiAs: $24.50

 French Terry Shorts
Forever 21: $10.80

Rainbow Wide Leather Strap Sandals (I live in these during the Summer)
PacSun: $49.50

Braided Trim Straw Hat (Must protect your face from sun damage)
Forever 21: 12.80

For Warm Summer Nights

Lace Corset Dress

Love Knot Espadrilles by MIA

I have yet to find a bikini that I really like. If you guys know any places that have cute ones please let me know!

My 21st Birthday

Hi everyone! I apologize again for not blogging in a while. I had my birthday, then it was my spring break, and then I got sick. Anyway, I wanted to share some photos of my 21st birthday with all of you. I had an absolute blast with my friends and family and got some really great gifts that I can't wait to show you!

I celebrated my birthday with my NYC friends the weekend before. I'm holding presents that my roommates gave me :)

My mom ordered these cupcakes for my friends and I to eat at dinner. She is so sweet. I ate the peanut butter and chocolate ganache one- it was absolutely amazing!

My friends and I ate dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant in the lower east side. It was such a great night! 

 Beautiful birthday presents from Wendy and Brittany. They always get me the best gifts!

 My first drink on my actual birthday! I got a mojito.

 Some birthday presents I bought myself from the Style Shop at FIT.

My family took me to an Asian restaurant called Grace's Mandarin at the National Harbor in Maryland. The food was excellent and this gigantic Buddha statue was quite impressive! 

 Our table overlooked the Potomac River. I couldn't have asked for a better view!

 Love my sister <3

I ordered a drink called a Wa-Wa Tini. It was so pretty I almost didn't want to drink it!

After lunch we went shopping. My parents bought me this bag from Fossil as a birthday gift. I love the color and it has that great leather smell! Thank you Ma and Daddy :)

Starla and James took me to a bar outside of D.C. called the Clarendon Grill. A cover band named Tripp Fabulous played. They were awesome! There's nothing better than singing my favorite 90s jams with my sister. It was the perfect way to end a week of celebrating!

Daily Obsession: Bisou Bisou Ruffle High Low Dress from Jcpenney

Hi everyone! I wanted to apologize for being MIA last week! My 21st birthday was on Tuesday and it sort of turned into a week long celebration. I have tons of birthday photos to share with you all very soon! Today's daily obsession is this Bisou Bisou Ruffle High Low Dress from Jcpenney: $40.

I received the Jcpenney April catalog in the mail and as soon as I browsed the second page this vibrant pink dress caught my eye. I really like the high low hem and the ruffles on the top. When paired with a cardigan and a wedges, this would definitely make a great outfit for Easter Sunday!
