confessional stripes

i have some confessions...

-i usually don't wear stripes. in fact, i seriously think they are unflattering. but, with that said, i do own one stripe shirt that i am definitely in love with. why? well, because it's not your traditional stripe shirt; it's navy and white, and the back is lace. and it's super casual- which is my style!




shirt | maurices //  tank | target // jeans | vigoss via maurices // necklace | mint sugar boutique // bracelets: arrow & silver | maurices, clear & blue | designed & made by me :) 

-just like i was freaking about graduation, i am now freaking out about the "after". more on that later.

-my greatest fear is loosing my child. i have heard a lot about the story of a fellow blogger and the tragic death of her 3 1/2 year old little boy all over social media the past few days. though i didn't know jacqui or her family personally, her story really hits home, and my heart feels for her and her family. it's crazy how a spur of the moment decision can alter a life forever. cherish the time you have with your loved ones. #redballoonsforryan

-i know you guys have probably noticed a change in my writing, aka all small letters and nothing capitalized. well, i have been thinking about branding, and the fact that my title is in all small letters. basically, i want everything to be uniform.

-along with the writing changes, i will be doing some design changes withing the next couple of weeks. no, i am not jumping ship to wordpress (i'm not that talented yet), but i want to build a media kit and redo some of my pages. in other words, i want to clean everything up.

-i am going to be adding sponsorship options this month also. i love doing q & a questionnaires with other bloggers and i would like to start featuring them here.

-i am also starting to figure out what my blogging niche is... beauty. i have some makeup posts scheduled (yes, i'm beginning to be on top of my shit) for next week, and i really like doing them!

-i love to cuddle... :)

-i am going to be adding some new pretties in the shop by the end of the week, and through the month of may, you can use coupon code MAY25 for 25% off your entire order!!!

  1. I'm on a Wordpress.com and I'm trying to figure out when to make the jump to .org. There's a book I want to get, Wordpress for dummies before I take that on...

  4. I for one think you look great here. Great outfit.
    I have read one mention about the little boy and not sure what went on. So I'm clueless there.
    I definitely need to change my font on the title of my blog post. its just not something i like anymore. its too big.
    cuddling is always nice.

  6. Thanks for linking up all of your confessions with us! I know, it is SO sad what happened to that little boy... I just can't imagine. :( I do love how the blogging community has lifted the family up with so much support. I love your striped/lace shirt! I am really into stripes AND lace... and a ton of other summer trends right now.
