Last weekend, I was in dire need of some shopping therapy. I had just gone from the mall and bought a pair of oxford heels, thigh-high socks (which, by the way, HOW DO YOU WEAR??), and some much needed leggings for the fall season. Anyhoo… I took a trip down to TJ Maxx for one last addition to my shopping bag.
Flipping through the racks, I stumbled upon this cute fox dress…In my size and probably the last one! Now, these kinds of loose dresses never work on me because of my figure. But my goodness, this dress was absolutely perfect. It had to be fate. So, I scourged through the last of my dollars and bought it. And it has already become a favorite in my closet! Who knew foxes could be so cute?

PS: I’m looking towards the next month of October and it’s pretty busy! Between SATs, ACTs, college visits, my wisdom teeth, and my birthday… It’s gonna be pretty time consuming. So I apologize beforehand when my posts become very sporadic over the next few weeks.
A little less than a month ago, I entered my very first giveaway. I could either receive a zebra shirt, green skirt, owl necklace, pink sunglasses, or a little satchel purse. Gosh, they were all so cute… I wanted them all! So, I entered thinking I probably wouldn’t win.
A few weeks later, I was checking up on the website and lo and behold… It said I had won! I think I seriously did a little jig because I was so happy. I gave her emailed her my request and address a few days later.
A couple of days ago, I hear my mom call from downstairs…
“OLIVIA! DID YOU ORDER SOMETHING FROM CHINA?!” I stop my homework-An Anatomy assignment to which I unnecessarily wrote down all 11 body systems… Instead of one- and go downstairs to see what my mother is talking about. She’s holding a small cardboard box in one hand with curiosity.
I quickly grab a pair of scissors and open the box. Inside is the cutest brown leather bag I have ever seen. And on the label, there are little Chinese characters that I can’t read. Even so, it’s still the cutest bag!
Anyway, I would just like to thank my fellow blogger, Niki from Hey Niki, for the opportunity. This giveaway was so sweet of you! The day after I received it in the mail, I took it to school and wore it out to lunch. I hope everyone who saw it was jealous 😉
The Giveaway prize from Hey Niki’s Blog! Thank you so much!
Sorry if I go a little AWOL this week. I seriously have a tennis match every. single. day. this. week. so it’s going to be super busy! But check in Wednesday and Friday for some posts I’ve already scheduled. And I promise I will get back to everyone by the end of the week!

My my my. Where has my summer gone? It only seems like yesterday when I was posting about finishing finals. I think it’s an unfair trick of nature where summer seems to speed by. But then, once school starts, that stupid clock in your math class drags on foreverrrrr. Tick tock tick tock.
I don’t normally wear this dress due to it’s lightweight material. But I kind of put together this outfit in a little frenzy today. I can totally tell it’s going this dress-boot combo is going to be worn a lot this year. It’s funny how some of the best outfits are the ones that are thrown together with little thought.
Hugs & Kisses,
Some of the best summer memories can be found around a bonfire. My friends had invited me to their birthday bonfire and it was absolutely perfect. There was a live band consisted of boys I’ve known since 1st grade wearing thrifted clothes and playing Red Hot Chili Pepper songs. I was sitting on a blanket with my boyfriend as we were watching a pretty intense game of Truth or Dare. (One dare included someone running around with burning sticks and chanting his love for Taylor Swift.) It was perfect. I mean, who doesn’t love gathering around a campfire with old and new friends, roasting marshmallows, and singing old Miley Cyrus songs?
As the end of the summer comes around the corner (*sad face*), I can’t help but try to savor the last of my carefree days. And I can tell you that I’m not ready to put away my shorts for jeans and tights. But, it feels as if fall has come a little too early. I’m finding that I’m adding cardigans to my racer-backs and I’ve had to pull out my jeans for late work nights. I can only hope that there will be a few more sunny days before I return to school.
Hugs & Kisses,
WOOOO PARTY AHHH!!!! I am officially finished with school/testing/pointless things. (I mean, I was mentally finished with my year like… 6 months ago but whatever.) One more year until I am released into that scary world by myself. It’s crazy to think that this time next year I will be starting a new chapter of life. At this point of time, I’m very clueless about that next chapter of my life. I was talking to my boyfriend about it and he’s so lucky! It seems like he’s got it all figured out but me? Just a bunch of question marks. Hopefully a year from now, I’ll have some idea about my life?
About three years ago, I got this butterfly dress. I’m not sure why, but I felt like I belonged in a Taylor Swift song wearing it. (Like the happy-ending-kind of song.) It quickly became a summer favorite-I wore it to school, birthday parties, and my brother’s college graduation. Thank goodness I stopped growing a long time ago because I would not be able to part with this dress. Ever.
What are your favorite summer time peices? Are they quirky like this dress or versatile that you incorporate into a lot of your outfits? My other favorite summer piece are those red shorts I’ve worn here and here. Surprisingly, red shorts can easily be paired up with a lot of stuff. Who knew?
Have a great weekend, loves!
