american girls








details: white striped top (f21), black shorts (papaya), white t-strip sandals (f21), red headband (f21), silver anchor earrings (american eagle)


very patriotic and nautical, yes? well, it was 4th of july / independence day weekend, so it was only appropriate. ;)

this was my first time buying shoes from forever 21, and i was pretty impressed! the sandals are actually comfortable (no blisters!) and have held up so far. for only $7.50, they're a great value and come in other colors too. i really like the lattice-like detailing on the ankle part. so cute!




what are your favorite summer fashion finds?

I've been buying F21 shoes for a very long time now. And they are pretty good for the price.

Eee! I love the outfit. Stripes in an essential in my wardrobe. The sandals are cute too.

Since it's winter here, no summer finds yet :( I hope your job hunting is going well too!

Eeeee! I'm so excited about Mockingjay too. It's also the book I'm looking forward to most this year. I'm sure it will be awesome!
