Lessons Learned

Button Up: Borrowed from my brother, Skirt: Thrifted, Boots: Charlotte Russe, 
Bangles: F21, Bracelets: Hot Topic

This week went by fast, but I sure did learn a few things along the way.

1. Lining my eyes all around with eyeliner worked freshman year...now? Not liking it so much. Never again unless done by a professional to make me look like a supermodel.

2. Don't be afraid to try something new. I love this tutu skirt and I've always worn it with "pretty heels" but with the rocker vibe I've been feeling all week, I tried pairing it with my black booties. I've gotta tell you, I'm liking the combination.

3. Always wear sunblock. After playing softball for about 6 hours in the hot hot sun last weekend, I'm still puzzled as to why it never crossed my mind to wear sunblock. My forehead is peeling and is literally two different colors right now.

4. You should always be nice to old friends. I recently ran into an old friend from high school while applying for a job and stopped to say hi only to find out that he was working there. He personally introduced me to the visual merchandising manager and put in a good word for me. 

5. Working out in the morning beats working out at night. I love having the full day ahead of me with the hardest part already out of the way.


Hope you all have a lovely weekend and get to make time for a margarita on Cinco de Mayo!

  1. I love the skirt/tutu!

    Totally agree with the freshman statement... my freshman year consisted of a lot of gold eye shadow and eye liner :/

  10. beautiful outfit, beautiful photos, beautiful post ;)
    And thanks for your comment^^ Sadly, I had absolutely no time to go running yesterday and today I need to walk the dog before the thunderstorm starts which they have been talking about in the forecast :/ But I don't really mind, I realised that forcing myself to do sports totally takes the fun out of it. That's the lesson I've learned this week ;)

  14. Gorgeous outfit, I love the boots with the tutu; the rocker look looks really nice on you! And I live by your nr. 3, I wear SPF 15 everyday and my skin feels so much better ever since I started! I have very sensitive skin so tanning is not the best idea for me

  16. I wish I could workout in the morning but my hair gets super frizzy and oily after I sweat, so I always workout after getting home.
    Have a great weekend!
