School Girl

Hey pretties! Today was my first day of junior year, whoot whoot! I couldn't be more excited that this year finally kicked off. This look was more on the casual side but a little bit dressy. My lime green sandals are from Target and I only got them for $9. I love these because the color doesn't clash with anything, it can literally be worn with any clothing. My dark capri jeans are from Adam Levine's clothing line which makes this ensemble the 'bit dressy part.' My favorite part of these jeans are the button and zipper are on the left side hip! How cool is that? My black and pink backpack is from Walmart. Last but not least my new favorite t-shirt. Of course I got it from the Miley Cyrus concert for $40, yes, that's expensive for a t-shirt but it was definitely worth it. Hope you enjoy the rest of the photos!

Bangerz

Hello lovelies! Yesterday I went to see the fabulous Miley Cyrus in her very popular 'Bangerz Tour.' She was absolutely remarkable and definitely put on a great show! This was totally a great way to end my summer and I couldn't think of a better way

For my Bangerz look I wore this amazing pink lace crop top that I really love from Forever 21! I haven't wore this top all this whole summer. I saved it just for this occasion. My dark skinny jeans are from Charlotte Russe. I don't normally prefer jeans, but these are an exception. I paired this outfit with my favorite denim converse shoes which goes perfectly with my denim jeans. My white jean jacket is by 'Route 66', and my purse and sunglasses are from H&M. I hope these photos make you feel like you were all at the concert, enjoy!

Floral Fairytale

Hello darling! Yesterdays outfit was definitely dressy and for great reasons. I was fortunate enough to see one of my bestest friend, that I've known for a very long time, perform in the Goodman Theatre production of Brigadoon! Which is why I named this post "Floral Fairytale" because the musical was much like a fairytale. She did a wonderful job, the whole cast did! I definitely recommend you all see it, it's definitely worth it. My momma even decided to pose for some pictures too.
Anyways, I am wearing my favorite floral high-low dress that I absolutely adore, I covered it with the most flowy gray cardigan I own from Forever 21. I love this one because it can be worn in the summer or winter which is fantastic. I accessorized my look with a crochet inspired bracelet, my Dooney and Bourke cream color purse, and Steve Madden bone colored pumps. Enjoy the rest of the photos!

Summer Shade

Hey lovelies! Remember in a couple posts back in Ballet+Fashion I said I was going to post a ballet photo shoot? Well, I finally wasn't busy or being completely lazy and did one! My mom-tographer and I got up really early this morning and went to our local park to take these shots. Of course I had to combine fashion and dance, so I am wearing a tank top dress that I got from Marshalls, one of my favorite stores. I love the lace parts on the dress and how easily it is to move in it. Yes I brought my flute with me to make George Balanchine's statement, "Here the music, see the dance" come true. I hope you enjoy these photos!

Back to school+Advice

Hello darlings! Sadly summer is dwindling down which only means school is quickly approaching. I start school August 18th which is right around the corner. I'm going to be a junior in high school... that is very hard to say and write on paper haha, but I have enjoyed my past two years so it's all good. I do have some exciting events to attend in the early part of August, so stay tuned for updates.

Here are some tips to make the transition from summer to school smooth:

*Make sure to eat a good breakfast: If you skip breakfast you won't be able to concentrate during long morning school hours. For me because each of my classes are eighty-three minutes it just makes the class longer if my stomach is constantly growling at me. If you have sport practice before school starts, eat before that and after.

*Update your stationery: Because everyone does a lot of writing throughout the term pens/pencils are always running out. It's a great idea to purchase new pens, pencils, paper-anything you've run out before starting a new term. And, we have to take every opportunity of getting cute stationery stuff right!?

*Get lots of sleep: This one is definitely hard because if you have practice, club meetings, or rehearsals, you don't get home until later which means you'll be starting homework late. Which is okay, just as long as you're not staying up because you're checking your twitter or instagram every minute. If you try going to sleep at a reasonable time every workday, it will help tremendously. 

*Keep track of everything from the beginning: Try to write down homework, test days or any important dates as soon as you get them. Write them on a piece of paper/ planer and put it somewhere you check often.

*Set aside a clear and tidy place to study/complete homework/study: I find if my work area is cluttered, so is my head. Spending a few minutes to straighten up can help you concentrate and get your work done more efficiently without being distracted.

*Take regular, short breaks in between studying/homework: Take 5-10 minute every hour or so to clear your head then refocus on the task again. Also ensure working under good lighting and drinking water regularly to reduce headaches.

* Listen and take notes in class: This will help to absorb what is being said and of course remember it

I really hope you guys enjoyed this post, something a bit different. School can sometimes be stressful but if you make it fun, it will be! Below are some supplies I just recently purchased. I hope you enjoy your first semester! :)

Taste of Chicago

Hey pretties! Today was such a beautiful day I decided to go downtown to the Taste of Chicago. Since I only have 38 days until school starts I wanted to actually do something with my life instead of just staying at home or just going to sport practices. But before I went there I wanted to take some pictures at Millennium Park. It's been awhile since I've been there and I figured why not!

Anyway onto the outfit! I am wearing a 'Mermaid' top inspired by Adam Levine clothing line. It's actually cropped which is super cute. My high waisted denim shorts are by Nicki Minaj, my favorite part is the crown design on the back right pocket. I'm wearing my signature denim converse to match the shorts. To accessorize I wore brown sunglasses that I bought from Forever 21, my favorite bandana as seen in my last post made in the usa and my very sequin back pack that I can literally fit everything in! Enjoy the rest of the photos, they were super fun to shoot!
