Fashion Friday (What To Wear For The Fourth)

So this week has been nothing but tank tops and yoga pants, and while this is comfortable it does not make for a great Fashion Friday. So I thought I might share some outfit inspiration for your 4th of July activities. I try not to stick to a holiday color scheme too much but admittedly I really love the combination of red, white, and blue so the 4th is always a fun fashion day for me.

headwrapAdorable pinup-esque headwrap from Forever 21 for $2.80 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=hair-accessories-headwraps&ProductID=1058544861&VariantID=

romper

I am shameless when it comes to my love of polka dots so its no surprise I adore this romper from Cotton On it’s only $14.95 and can be dressed up or down. http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/cuban-strappy-playsuit-baby-polka-ink/

wedgesLove these wedges from target. I almost never go into target with a sizable amount of cash because I’ll end up going on a spending spree, and because of this I was unable to purchase these gorgeous sandals that are just as comfortable as they are pretty. They’re currently on sale for $23.99 I may need to make a purchase. http://www.target.com/p/women-s-mossimo-supply-co-waylon-harachi-cork-wedge-sandal-cognac/-/A-14331320#prodSlot=medium_1_1

and should the heat be too much for you, going for a swim is a must, so this adorable suit may also be a must 😉

one pieceLove this one piece from Target its only $29.99 http://www.target.com/p/junior-s-1-piece-vintage-swimsuit-assorted-colors/-/A-14216465#prodSlot=large_2_23

Jake Shimabukuro Concert.

On Sunday night I had the great pleasure of attending the Jake Shimabukuro at The Kessler concert with my family. We had first heard of Jake through a PBS special and we were instantly captivated by this incredible musician. Jake grew up in Hawaii and began playing the ukulele from a very young age, as the years went by and Jake grew up he found himself inspired by “Guitar heros”. While at a Van Halen concert he couldn’t help but feel “that’s what an ukulele concert should be like” this lead him to experiment with different styles of playing resulting in the amazing sound he has now, mixing the traditional Hawaiian with classic rock and roll guitar riffs, and let me tell you I never knew that someone could shred on a ukulele like that! The variety of styles of music Jake can play on one ukulele is truly something incredible to behold! If you ever have the opportunity to see Mr Shimabukuro you must seize the day and buy those tickets, you are in for such a treat.

Fashion Friday Featuring Klen Laundry

So sometimes you just don’t feel like dressing up, you feel like wearing you’re favorite t-shirt, yoga shorts, and a comfy pair of socks. Let me tell you I have never loved a pair of socks quite like the way I love Klen Laundry’s! I received my package from Klen Laundy on Saturday and I felt like a kid on Christmas, you may think its silly to get excited about socks and such but I don’t care, its the simple things in life afterall right? So I thought I might share my comfy Fashion Friday with you all.

As long as I’m on a yoga mat I might was well do yoga right?IMG_9853
IMG_9848IMG_9856IMG_9860IMG_9864IMG_9889IMG_9874IMG_9904 adorable drink koozies

IMG_9925IMG_99369868and because I clearly haven’t any idea of what is socially acceptable you may now feast your eyes on this picture.

IMG_9961Yes that is me in with a pair of underwear on the outside of my yoga shorts with a towel cape. Sorry mom this picture alone terminates any chance I had of becoming a future president. All joking aside these underwear are super soft and so comfy, and while they may be meant for guys, that’s not stopping me from wearing them. They fit like boyshorts which I love. So ladies if you’re a fan of boyshorts buy yourself a pair, and guys since they’re clearly made for you lot you ought to buy yourself some.

Keith Harkin T-Shirt: I got this shirt from one of my bestest buds who lives too far away. Keith didn’t have the shirts for sale when he was in my neck of the woods, but he did when he was near my dear “mindtwin” so she bought one and shipped it to me! How great is that? I saw that Keith was thinking of selling these online so I bet if we bug him enough it’ll happen 😉

Yoga Shorts: Old Navy http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?vid=1&pid=387930002

Socks, Koozies, and yes even underwear: Klen Laundry, an awesome company who’s products are made of bamboo so they stay nice and fresh, because goodness knows socks can get pretty gross even with regular washings! Another really awesome thing about this company is that for every pair of socks you buy they plant a tree. I mean how awesome is that? Find more about this killer company here https://klenlaundry.com/

Hope you all enjoyed this post and had a good laugh at my ridiculousness, again sorry mom. 😉 Happy Friday.

“What I Wore” Wednesday

So I may or may not keep up with another outfit post but it’s worth a shot. This outfit I wore on Sunday for a quiet girls night out. Me and some of my lovely friends went to dinner then onto see Star Trek Into Darkness, which is a crazy awesome movie! Benedict Cumberbatch is incredible as Khan. I decided to go with a fresh faced not too fussy outfit and I think this was the perfect balance of style and comfort.

9721972597449737 My absolute favorite thing about this dress has got to be the opening in the back!

980197799734

Earrings: Cracker barrel, you can find just about everything there!

Flower: I bought it at the dollar store.

Dress: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/search/?q=raven+vintage+dress  couldn’t find the print I’m wearing, but the other prints are gorgeous and this baby is on sale for only $10!

Boots: Atwoods.

Hope you all enjoyed the post! Have a happy Wednesday.
