Website Wednesdays: Free People

Hey there blog world!

I have been working on a new idea for a more regular upkeep on the blog. On Wednesdays (hopefully every Wednesday) I plan on posting an online store where I like to browse through new styles, and tease myself with clothes I cannot afford to buy.

I’m going to share these with you, so that you too can look through some of my favorite websites, and buy, or drool over their clothing!

You’re welcome 🙂

Today I’m going to start with Free People. I LOVE this brand, and their style of clothes. But they are BEYOND expensive. Sometimes I’ll browse through the sale rack at Macy’s and find a deal, but normally, you’re lookin’ at forkin’ over an arm and a leg. But who says a girl can’t look???

$28.00 @ Free People

We all know by now that I LOVE feathers, and feather clips. I would wear them every day if I didn’t feel like I permanently had a bird in my hair. This is a teeny bit expensive, but hey, what the hell.

$38.00 @ Free People

Their jewelry is always soooo unique, I just wish I had the money to pay for a $40.00 bracelet. I love the color pink…. mmmm.

$68.00 @ Free People

Normally, I try to stick with shorter hemlines, because I’m not the tallest girl ever. But I love that this is asymmetrical, and the one lace sleeve. ❤ ❤ ❤

$68.00 @ Free People

I love these shorts. Now it is beyond me why we pay for denim that looks like you’ve owned it for years, but I guess that’s the style?? I love denim shorts in summer time; I rock them on the daily.

$78.00 @ Free People

LOVE this top! Green is one of my best colors, with my dark hair. It totally brings out my eyes, and I love the tie in the shirt. Cute cute cute

$88.00 @ Free People

MORE TEAL! Obviously I can’t get enough. And I always love lace. OOhhhhh. Love this top.

$38.00 @ Free People

AH this bracelet is to DIE for. I’m not usually big on bracelets ’cause I find that they always get in my way, and I have the world’s smallest wrists, so they fall off all the time. But I adore this one!

So there’s a little taste of one of my favorite sites, Free People. Check it out, loves!


Summertime Style

So, since you’re reading about things in my life that are so personal, I thought you should see firsthand what my style looks like. I set up a shoot with a friend, Jillian, to show off my personal style.

If I had to describe it, I’d say, for the most part, I’m a pretty casual girl. ESPECIALLY in the middle of Arizona’s summers. When it’s 115 degrees outside, I don’t care too much for packin on the layers. I keep it simple with tank tops and denim shorts. Most of the time I’m also rockin’ flip flops or my Converse.

This is a perfect example of my every day outfit.


$30.00 @ Sole and Blues

$20.00 @ Hollister

$5.80 @ Forever21

This next outfit is also very typical for my summer style.  More denim shorts, and yet another tank. This is something I’d wear on a summer night, to a party, or just to hang out with the boys (on a typical summer night, you’d find me kickin’ it with some of my best friends, most of which are guys).

Notice the nail color; it’s the new one I bought, “Turned Up Turquoise” by OPI.


$30.00 @ Swell

$44.50 @ Hollister

$17.50 @ American Eagle

By the way, I love stacked bracelets and rings; I’m not a huge accessories person, but I love the look of it. I find a lot of cute accessories at American Eagle. Their jewelry is to die for!

My nextttt outfit, is my summer sun dress. This is when I feel like dressing it up a bit, but still casual enough for comfort!

$17.99 @ Target

$19.80 @ Forever21

Uhm, I’m in love with that dress from Forever21. The tribal print is adorable, and honestly, I like it better than the one I’m wearing! What the heck? I might have to make it mine.

And last but not leastttt, my night out attire! This is what I originally intended to wear as my birthday dress, however, my birthday this year was freezing cold and rainy, so this was not the outfit I wore.
