City Lovin'

Being a city lover, I missed the feel of walking through New York City in the summer time. Unlike past summers, I've only gone to the city at most 3 times this whole summer, which is so upsetting. But I did take advantage of my day off and decided to go to the city with my good friend, Vicky. I wore a black maxi dress from H&M and did my very first sock bun! It was a messy bun with a bunch of fly aways but I guess that's why they say practice makes perfect. It couldn't have been a better day to walk all throughout NYC; going shopping and eating good food. While walking around the NYU Campus, we made a pit stop at the Washington Square Park and we saw kids running around and playing in the fountain. It couldn't have been a better day for that, with the humidity and all. I also discovered my new favorite drink from Starbucks, the green tea lemonade but I heard the Peach Green Tea Lemonade is even better so I'd have to try that next time! 

Have a lovely August everyone and enjoy the Summer and the weather before it's gone! Sooner or later before we even know it, it'll be Fall, yikes! But I'm so excited for the winter season, so I can wear all my sweaters and other comfy clothes.

July Overview

8. Carousel at the boardwalk
9. New friends at my Rutgers Orientation

Although I've been working so much this month, I feel like I had a lot accomplished as well. Hanging out with my friends before they all go away to college and having that family bonding time we have annually. I can't believe it's already August, which means Summer is almost over and Fall is right around the corner, which also means school's going to start soon. The nerves of going to school and living in a completely new environment and area hasn't exactly hit me yet but I'm sure I'll feel it while going college dorm shopping. After quitting my job on the 15th of August, I will definitely take that chance to see my friends one last time and make the most out of what's left of my summer vacation! Hope you all had a lovely July because I know I did!

Weekend Get-Away Photo Diary!

I could not have asked for a better weekend these past few days! It felt so good to just relax and be with family. From hanging out in the hotel to tanning on the beach and walking the boardwalk, we all had so much fun. My nephew and niece had a blast at the boardwalk arcades and rides while the girls enjoyed bathing under the sun at the beach. Looking through these photos, I realize how crazy my family is but that's exactly why I love them the way I do. I can't wait to have another family reunion before the summer ends!

For my outfit details, I'm wearing a bikini from H&M. At night on the boardwalk, I changed into an embellished tank from H&M and a black high-low skirt from Urban Outfitters with my Urban Outfitters crossbody and Steve Madden embellished sandals.

Bring On The Weekend

Tribal Print Tee/Ralph Lauren Beach Maxi Skirt/Urban Outfitters Crossbody/Target sandals/Alex&Ani Bangles
I'm so excited for this weekend! I get to see most if not all my family and get to do some family bonding while I'm down at Atlantic City this weekend! I just wanted to do a little post before I leave but I'll be sure to do a photo diary/post about my weekend when I get back next week! The weather's been kind of gloomy over here in the East Coast but at least it's not blazing hot! Hopefully the sun will come back out tomorrow so I can go to the beach and get a tan. But nonetheless, I'll be having a great weekend and I hope you guys do too!

Clothing Haul!

Lucca Couture Strapless Floral Chiffon Dress - Urban Outfitters

Leather Jacket - Alfani

Over the past couple weeks, I've been able to find some pieces while at the mall and online. Since it's Summer, I stacked up on dresses and my absolute favorite is the high-low dress from H&M! That one is my more expensive buy, but I couldn't resist! I also bought a leather jacket - I know it's Summer but I couldn't pass up on it since I found it in the sale rack - by Alfani. I don't usually wear leather or the color yellow/green, and this is officially my first leather jacket, but it didn't look too bad on me so I bought it (impulse buy much?). Well we all go through some sort of change - and mine just happens to be about the way I dress. I used to gear towards clothing that was more vintage looking and darker colors like black and navy. But now, I've realized that when I go shopping, my eyes automatically go towards the bright and fun colors! I definitely go shopping a little too much but when there's awesome sales - especially the Spring/Summer Sale almost every store is having - it's hard to stop myself!

Go check out Zara and Asos for their Summer sale now!!
