shirt and headband: forever 21, skirt: american apparel, shoes: aldo 

If it's true that you are what you eat, then I must be a full pack of Hubba Bubba bubble gum. The pink sugary goodness has apparently not only worked its way into my diet, but into my outfit photos as well. It's okay though, because it kinda matches the sweet looking ensemble I have going on today. With all the girliness going on here, it's almost funny to think that I had Outkast's Pandora station playing the whole time I was taking pictures. "Now throw yo hands in the ayeeeeerrrrr...."

romper: urban outfitters, hat: missguided, shoes: target

This romper was actually an attempt to go ahead and start building up a fall wardrobe, but as usual I have no restraint when it comes to new clothes...or pizza...or caramel filled chocolate. Ok, I need to stop before I find myself raiding the pantry. Anyways, this romper had me with it's perfect polka dot print and ruffle trimmed shorts. Though, I've styled it summery here, I can't wait to wear it again later with a sweater and knee socks, as was my original plan. This does not mean, however, that I'm ready to say good bye to summer. I hate seeing my favorite season leave so soon. Truly, I've got that summertime sadness.

Heart of the City

dress: h&m, socks: american apparel, shoes: ebay, sunglasses: asos

I don't know about y'all, but I'm feelin' the love for this heart print babydoll dress from h&m. Short and breezy, it's become one of my favorites to put on during these too hot to wear much else days. Speaking of favorites, there's no telling how many times this summer that I've spoken the words "large cotton candy slushie with Nerds, please" into a Sonic drive in speaker. I mean, it's my favorite food in liquid form. Is resisting even an option?

She's Mad but She's Magic

romper: missguided, flower crown: made by me, shoes: ebay

There it was, the quiet house, the overgrown bushes, the subject of the townspeople's whispers. There were flowers. There were butterflies. And then there was her, dancing. Spinning. Spinning. Spinning. 
Like magic, she set the place alight with just a brush of her hand. Each turn making the place more and more beautiful. So there, crowned with flowers and draped in lace, she was painting the world with the colors of her daydreams.

Honestly though, how magical is this little place? All white with the prettiest screen door, shaded front porch, and flowery uncut bushes, which there were literally butterflies living in. I hate to think that this is place is soon going to be torn down and rebuilt, because I think it's just so beautiful as it is now, like a set for a movie. To this sanctuary of a place I dressed in complete summer whites, because it is August after all. Plus, I'm in love with this playsuit that I just ordered from Missguided. I know it's hard to tell in some of these pictures, but it's made completely of lace and it actually isn't supposed to twist at the top, it's just supposed to be a straight V neckline all the way down. However, being 5'4 the straps turned out to be too long for me to wear it that way, so I twisted it up and turned it into a romper that I love even more than the one I had intentionally ordered. Just add white platform sandals and a flower crown worn to the side (though I had a hard time not making myself a new one out of the flowery bushes) and you're perfectly dressed for a day of daydreaming and butterfly watching on the front porch of an abandoned house.

Btw, props to anyone recognizing the title of this post. Charles Bukowski, is one of my very favorites.
