If any of you are like me then it is completely normal to stare when you see a girl or guy wearing a headband. I don't know what it is that pulls me in like a magnet BUT its true. There is something about headbands that lure me...they scream free spirit...they echo cool vibes...they have a feminine and tomboyish flare. I am guilty of wearing the skinny stretchy ones over my hair but the ones that really are catching my eye are the extremely big cotton ones with a cute fabric twist in the front. The best part is they come in every color imaginable plus they can be worn with any ensemble. Texture, print, skinny, or fat. It takes a little bit of courage but try wearing one over your lovely locks this month or pushing your bangs back while your hair is in a ponytail but beware people might take a doubletake:)

I don't know if any of you are like me but I have the longest torso in the world. I am about 5'10 flat footed but my legs are literally the length of my 5'4 friends. I often run into issues with my shirts being too short,so then you go up a size but they are too big. UGHH. The days of the long tees are gone and the crop tops are here to stay (at least for the summer). I desire wholeheartedly to embrace the cute airy crop but I didn't think it was possible because my low waisted skinny jeans made me look like I was wearing an 80s work out top. So, I was looking in my closet recently and found an old pair of target merona high waisted jeans. Honestly, they are quite dreadful BUT I decided to snip snip and TADA new high waisted faux vintage shorts. They are quite versatile and encompass a bit of edge. They can be casual with a short top or dressed up with a cute button up tucked in. Some of my favorite stores like "Urban, forever, and free" all sell these but they are much cuter and less expensive when you muster up some DIY courage. Rock the crops, high waists, and vintage button ups for a girly summer look.
p.s. don't forget a skinny belt it accentuates your waist and adds that perfect pop of color :)

Um hello, it's very strange to be writing and sharing about fashion to those I don't know yet. I guess it takes confidence to think your blog is worthy to be read, thought about , and maybe even influential. Honestly, it reminds me of discovering a new necklace or a lost pair of jeans (that you decide to cut off and roll up). Confidence. Breathe it in. Mean it. Feel it. Playing dress up is an art but if you don't believe in it then its not going to work. The trend for today is peach blazers. Its light, airy, full of life, and feminine. Its perfect for the late july picnic or porch sitting with friends. Hmmm it sounds perfect to me. Today, think of your new confidence as you rock your peaches and cream.
