on the right track

so chambray is the most important thing ever in the summer. am i right or am i right? light, airy, and matches anything. i love it because it looks like denim without the weight or heaviness. i wear this shirt so often it's a little crazy, but i just can't help myself! i need my denim fix and this is a great substitute for a denim jacket. cause we all know maryland summers are way too hot for that, y'all. 

the grunge inspired look was based on some online shopping and pinterest-ing that i was doing a couple days ago. i came across this look as well as this one and decided to combine them and recreate my own for both for a hip and a laid back outfit. i absolutely adore this black skirt from forever 21. it's so comfy and i love pairing it with a t-shirt or a sweater to dress it down.  pairing a more dressy piece and a "chill" piece is a big thing of mine. i don't like going all girly or all tomboy.

i painted my nails white the other day and i am obsessed.  it's so fun and summery. i usually gravitate to black or other dark color nail polishes so it was cool mixing it up. plus, in the case of this outfit, i love how it matches my top (i wish i could say i planned it but i most certainly didn't).

this "headband" is actually a long piece of string/cloth that came with a dress i just bought at the thrift store a couple days ago. i didn't like it as a belt, so i decided to wrap it around my head a few times and it works as a headband! i was pretty proud of myself. haha! i never throw away things like this because you never know what you could use it for. DIY FTW!
