Keeping It Casual - 7 (Link Up) & A Giveaway


Forever 21 top (here), blazer, and earrings, Old Navy shorts, Topshop sandals

Remember this post where I talked about being hesitant to try the floral trend? Well, I found this floral t-shirt at Forever 21 and decided to give it a go.



You know me; I'm super dependent upon my blazers. I don't know what I'm going to do when the weather really heats up. No, wait, I do know what I will do. I'll keep wearing the blazers even though I'm burning up. I'll just crank up the A/C.

Linking up today with Because Shanna Said So for Random Wednesdays. And with that said, I will leave you with a few random facts:

  • I love Harry Potter and used to read the whole series every summer. I fell out of that habit and I'm itching to start back this summer.
  • I tell the same stories over to the same people because I can't remember if I already told them. 
  • I am probably the only person who did not like Les Mis
  • I'm a planner. I had my outfits planned months in advance for our last vacation. I'm already planning the next vacation even though it is probably two years away.

  17. The floral looks great with the stripes! Very cute. And I'm a huge Harry Potter fan myself. I usually read them in the winter though when we're stuck inside all the time. Wait, have I already told you that? Yeah, I'm bad about that too ;)

  23. I think this is a great way to get into the floral trend. It's a super pretty look! And my mother in law also tells the same stories over again because she can't remember if she told them. She'll also read the same books over again because she can't remember that she read them. It's pretty funny.

  34. Great shorts and they look amazing with the florals. I am itching for a revisit to HP (will be my fifth or sixth). They are amazing books. I am actually revisiting Millenium series at the moment and considering a trip back to HUnger Games. They are all best sellers for a reason. I also have no intention of getting near Les Mis. I think the singing would do my head in. Thanks for sharing.
