I love it when it's hot! Unfortunately, today is it for a while :(


So, taking full advantage of the unseasonably warm temps, I'm sporting (for the second time this week) my new bright orange maxi dress. I'm LOVIN' it! Ridiculously comfy and I scooped it up for $13 at Ross, along with these super-snazzy sandals for $12. It's layered over a cami from BMoss (clearance $3) and set off with the biggest bandanna known to man (seriously, this thing is at least 4' x 4'). Added some metallic touches with Old Navy hoops earring (clearance $3) and a studded bracelet (Hot Topic, clearance $2).


I'm in love with gladiator sandals, but am not crazy about them on me - too many horizontal lines chopping up my already short legs. These are the love child of gladiators and my favorite thong design - perfect! And at that price?!

On a different note entirely, I've been listening to The Velvet Underground as my first "assignment" in my music education experiment. I must admit that in the past, I would impersonate the VU by making horrible screeching noises, because all I heard was feedback and total dischord. For that reason alone, this album seemed like a good place to start. Not to mention, we saw Adventureland this weekend (awesome movie!) and they're obsessed with Lou Reed - it was a sign.

So far, I'm loving it. Pale Blue Eyes is clearly an amazing song and I quickly warmed up to What Goes On and Beginning to See the Light. It's much more mellow than I anticipated, though there are still some moments of calamity. Check it out and let me know what you think!


  1. I LOVE that dress...I'm so into orange right now. And I'm totally on board with the gladiator love/hate thing. I think it's such a cute style but makes me ever more stumpy. Ah, oh well.

  2. I agree with being on an orange kick! It's such a great happy color! You look wonderful in this dress!

  3. Oh my goodness, i can NOT get enough of that scarf!

  4. I am LOVING how you styled that huge bandanna! I am planning to be in my maxi dress quite frequently soon and now I want a huge fun scarf like that! - e.

  5. The first black and white pic so pretty! such peaceful picture!

  6. I realized that I totally forgot to respond to your VU listening challenge. Lou Reed rocks my frickin' world, and I'm ever-so-excited to see him this year at Lollapalooza! I love "I'm Sticking with You", but "Femme Fatale", "Sunday Morning", and "Heroin" also make my world. I know I'm repeating myself here, but I LOVE THAT YOU'RE DOING THIS!!!


I LOVE to hear from my awesome readers, so let me know what you're thinking! If you don't have a blog, please leave your email, so that I can respond and/or answer any questions. Always, Kyla
