I love a cute romper for the summer. It's such an easy one stop outfit. Unlike a summer dress, a romper provides the comfort of shorts. I love to pair mine with a simple belt or a fedora hat. Urban Outfitters has such a great selection of rompers that are great for day as well as night.

Window Displays

{images via StyleSight}

 How amazing are these window displays? Stores like Bergdrof's and Galeries Lafayette have been setting the bar for what window displays should be. These unique and innovative designs will spark anyone's interest. Whether someone is interested in what the store is selling or not, they will catch your attention. They are works of art. Definitely not something you would see at your everyday store!

Summer Sunnies

Summer Sunnies

1 / 2 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

How fun are these colorful sunglasses?! Summer is the time to experiment and play around with color. What better way to add a pop of color to your day than with your sunglasses? I love all the bright colors as well as the floral and leopard prints. When heading to the beach or pool, I definitely look for cheaper unique shades that I wont have to worry about breaking or scratching. I have a floral pair that is my summer staple and comes with me everywhere. If your looking for an affordable pair or a more expensive designer brand, I have shared ten items ranging from $3.50 to $158. So have fun at the beach, the pool, or just walking around on a nice sunny day, and wear your bright shades all summer long!

I've always had naturally very thick, wavy hair that can get extremely frizzy and look dry, especially during the summer months. I'm definitely jealous of people like my mother, who's hair is naturally shiny and healthy without any products.  To try and maintain healthy hair in the summer, I try to cut back on blow drying and straightening my hair as much as possible to avoid any extra damage. I don't think it requires a lot of products to keep and maintain healthy hair, but there are a few key products that help your hair look its best. Above are some great options in both affordable and in slightly more expensive versions. With the help of a few products you will be able to maintain healthy and happy hair during the summer and all year long.

Dress: NastyGal, Sweater Nordstrom, Shoes Aldo (another cute option here), Watch DKNY

I wore this dress the other day when I went out to lunch with my mom by the water. Anyways, I got this dress last summer and love the loose flowing fit. When it's really hot outside I don't like being in tight clingy dresses that I'm constantly pulling at, which is why this dress was perfect. The gold detailing around the neck makes it feel dressed up without any added accessories. To make this dress work for the daytime, I dressed it down with sandals, a colorful sweater, and minimal jewelry. You can never go wrong with a little black dress!
Here, here , here, and, here are few similar black dresses that are loose fitting for summer as well as extremely affordable!

Happy 4th of July!! Today, I decided to make a fun healthy treat to celebrate. I took strawberries and cut out the centers. Then I put whipped cream on the inside and topped it off with blue sprinkles. I thought this would be a great treat for a red, white, and blue kinda day. Hope everyone enjoys their day! :)

Although I attended the graduation ceremony back in May, today officially marks my last day of school! It never really felt like I was officially done with school since I had to take two summer classes, but now I'm done. Yay! These past six weeks of my summer classes just flew by. I still can't believe I'm done with college. Here are a few photos from my graduation. Hope everyone had a good weekend!
