Teen Vogue Snapshot

Hey everyone! I'm super excited to tell you guys that I'm featured today on the Teen Vogue blogs as the Best Dressed Reader of the Day! I'm so honored to be chosen for it, Teen Vogue was one of the first magazines I ever subscribed too and a huge inspiration in me wanting to become a journalist! I've been a Teen Vogue It Girl and I went to TV Fashion U last year and will hopefully go again this year!! It's so so exciting to be on their blogs, thanks Teen Vogue!! (Now maybe you should respond to my internship application! ^_~) Anyway, you can go here to check it out!!

Also, I'm on vacation in Puerto Rico until August 1st and I'll have little to no internet access! :( But I'm going to be staying in a little house on the beach, visiting family, and I'm going to be a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding! It's going to be a good break from work and class (which are finally over) and I promise to take lots of outfit pictures for you guys!!

Until next time,

July Inspiration: Ahoy Matey!

For this months inspiration, it only seemed fitting to do something that I've literally been obsessing over lately. I don't know if it's the fact that America's birthday is the month which calls for all things red, white, and blue, or if it's my long lasting love for all things striped; Maybe it's the fact that I can't stop buying things that are navy, but I'm just super in love with the whole nautical theme lately.

It's not like we haven't seen it before, in fact it usually pops up in our fashion world most summers, but lately with the heat-wave thats been going on in the New York area, I want nothing more than to throw on a navy dress with some detailed bows and trek out on a boat into the breezy waters! Unfortunately I don't have a boat, and I only have one such dress in my possession, so I have to go a different route. Stick humid NYC calls more for cut-off shorts with a navy striped tank top and some gold accessories! I'm trying to get over the heat and grin and bear it for some good outfits though - after seeing Zooey Deschanel wear a sailor dress and tights when performing as She & Him on the 4th of July in 100 degree weather, I'm motivated to man up!!!

Anyway, it seems I'm not the only one who is inspired by these themes lately - check out my friend Q's blog to see a recent post of hers on Breton stripes, along with more great inspiration! So, dear readers, I leave you with the source of all this sailor love, in the form of a ton of pictures I've found lately that I can't get enough of! So roll up your boyfriend jeans, throw on a sailor cap and enjoy!

Birthday !

Holy Moly, time has flown and it again has been too long since I saw you blogging world! But one of my classes is over and my summer job is almost over so I can finally breathe again! And that means more posts :) So anyway, my 20th birthday was yesterday (the 12th) and I spent the weekend doing exciting things like visiting my friends at University of Delaware (I used to go to school there) and watching the world cup (so happy that my boys won)! For the actual day I was home in New Jersey and my boyfriend and I went to this town in Pennsylvania, New Hope, which I go to a lot when I'm home and is the cutest place ever. If you're in the area you should visit because there's great thrift stores, homestyle stores and cafes/restaurants. I got some art for my walls because I still haven't decorated my dorm room, and maybe I'll show you guys when it's all done! Anyway, I know I have a July Inspiration post soon and it's coming, but I figured I'd post my birthday outfit because it is basically my July inspirations put into an outfit - nautical inspired! I love this dress, and was actually very surprised to find it at Forever 21, but of course glad I did. It was a little hot for today's high temperatures, but definitely worth it!!

Dress: Forever 21
