today’s look..urban light.

simple casual summer look tshirt dress sandals

this outfit i like to call my “tour guide barbie” outfit, because i wore it both while my family was visiting and also while my best girlfriend, taylor was here this weekend. it’s basically one of those outfits that is composed entirely out of go-to pieces, which is basically what i’ve had to do all summer.

you know those blog posts or pins on pinterest you see about how someone took 15 pieces and wore them 30 different ways? i feel like that’s been my life for the past 9 weeks. maybe i should do a post like that..haha!

(pssst! follow me on pinterest if you don’t already!)

if y’all are still trying to decide on a trend to go in on this summer, let slide sandals be your answer. i got these pony hair bad boys from urban outfitters and i wear them ALL. THE. TIME. they go with everything…i mean, they’re black sandals of course they go with everything. i almost opted for a pair of athletic slides from adidas or nike, but i’m so glad i went with these because i can easily dress them up or down (and because they were on SALE! woot woot!).

just my luck, they’re sold out, but i’ve linked similar pairs and good alternatives down below!

FLEX FRIDAY: i am burnt out.

hello, lovebugs! i hope you got all your work done for the week, because you deserve a BREAK! enjoy yourself this weekend..i know i will! my bestest girlfriend, taylor is flying into LAX in just a few hours and i could not be more excited! we have a huge list of things to do and see and eat and drink, starting with the broad this evening.

(keep an eye out for that blog post coming soon! this museum is RAD, so rad it’s sold out, and you won’t want to miss it.)

but in more relevant news, FLEX FRIDAY IS BACK!

there’s been a lot of self-revelation going on recently, and i’m giving you a little insight as to why #flexfridays have been slacking and why taking a break from things is OKAY.

i won’t give too much away, because then there is no reason to watch the vlog! however, there is a little more to the story as to why #flexfridays took a bit of a hiatus so i think that may be the topic of my next one. it has a lot to do with struggling with body image and i think a lot of you girlies (and dudes even!) could relate to that. i know i’m not alone in this never ending battle with self esteem. am i right?

but for now here’s today’s post, and as always feel free to leave any future post suggestions in the comments. i’d love to write about something i know you want to see!

get my beats headphones here!

 

today’s look..faith & fortune cookie wisdom.

i think i’ve only ever been inspired by fortune cookie once in my life, and that day was yesterday. i’m not even kidding, y’all, listen to this.

“seek to identify in yourself what you love in others.”

i wish i had some deep revelation after reading this to share with y’all, but i don’t. thinking on it now, i’ve come to realize that this is an ongoing thought process in our lives.
