Everything about this dress makes me feel like an angel. So crazy, but I feel so simplistically beautiful when I’m wearing it and can’t say I’ve felt that way about many things. It’s quite see through, so I wear it as a bathing suit cover up – or more like I wear a bathing suit underneath just so I can wear the dress :P I’m all about shift dresses this summer and this white looks amazing with a tan! (And was only $10!!!) Marshalls always has some amazing finds! Xo, A

I’m 100% obsessed with everything high waisted at the moment. In the fashion world, these are a must, but in every day society (in little Rhody, anyways) I look just a bit crazy wearing them. I say, the more different the better when it comes to style! This pair from Missguided are an amazing fit and great quality. Any pair of high waisted jeans will look great with cute little crops like this one. (PS the more daring you’re outfit, the better :P)
I found this adorable Brandy dress at Pac Sun. It’s a really easy throw on that you can dress up or dress down. With a pair of heels this outfit could be completely different! The necklace is a major statement piece and really pulls it all together. I don’t typically wear statement jewelry but this necklace is killer and looks great with anything black, whether it’s casual shorts and a tee or a dress like this.
Today was a day spent relaxing, taking the dog for a walk and walking through town with my little siblings; which perfectly explains this super casual, comfortable outfit. I’ve wanted a crochet tank top for awhile now and came across this one in Hollister. This style tank is great to dress up or down, to throw on over your swimsuit or to tuck half into a jean 70s button down style skirt (American Apparel has a cute one here). It’s one of my favourite go-to pieces in my summer wardrobe!
I had a great Fourth of July with my family and felt more adorable than ever in this little vintage style dress I stumbled across in a small boutique here in Newport, RI. While I struggle to remember the name of the store, the brand of the dress is Ixia. It’s a brand that makes vintage pin-up dresses and can actually be found on Amazon! There’s tons of different styles available too. Vintage 50s/60s style is my absolute favorite!
I hope your holiday was great!
This dress was such a lucky buy – I’m convinced it was just meant to be! Only available online, someone had returned it in stores and it accidentally was put in clearance where it was found and given to me at an honorable price :) Haven’t always been the biggest fan of Hollister and their signature generic flowery printed items, but after visiting there for the first time in years I fell in love with quite a few things and was really surprised (definitely more posts to come!) So I do recommend giving their website a look. I went for brunch and ice cream with a friend in this dress – the fit is amazing; it’s unbelievably comfortable and I feel absolutely adorable in it. What more could you ask for from a dress!?
Hope you love it as much as I did! :)
I do not know if I am the roof, warn and rusted and broken
in more places than I am whole, and you are the light,
shining through and making those gaps seem beautiful…
or, If I am the light, and you are the roof that is too scared to
toss aside the shingles, cast away the nails, and be bathed in
my warmth until you forget you were ever broken at all.
I do not know, and I do not know if I ever will.

My friend had this amazing book of poems at her house and I fell deeply in love with the beautiful words. I haven’t made a lovely words post in awhile – my time has been invaded lately, but in the best way :)
From now until I finish the book I’ll be sharing with you some of my favourite pieces. Here’s to many more XO
“Oh my heart, how you flee from me to rest in
other homes, to beat softly in other chests.
Have we lived if we have never been loved
unconditionally, can we die once we have, or is
immortality there, in the constant love we
receive long after our breath is no more?”

I’ve always had a strict diet of chicken fingers, pizza, french fries, Doritos and oreos (so awful, I know…) But I never really had to worry much about my weight. I was an extremely active member at my gym and loved it. Now that it’s summer and I’ve never looked exactly the way I have always dreamed of, I decided to get on a healthy eating kick and STICK with it! Every monday has always been the start of a new ‘diet’ for me, a new diet that lasted, ehhhh, about probably 2 hours. But two weeks ago I went to the market and took the first steps to eating healthy and I’ve actually stuck with it!
Don’t get me wrong – I have to look at pictures of models in bikinis every hour just to keep me motivated – but it works my friends.
I tossed this salad together (it’s basically almost every healthy item I bought mushed into one pile) and it ended up tasting just perfect. Dinner or Lunch, this is my go-to almost daily.
Here it goes:
-Hummus (weird… i know. but trust me)
-Oven Roasted Turkey
-Ranch made with Yogurt (even more weird… but amazing)
Try it out; I promise it’s worth it (:
PS… Don’t let today be your Monday :P
