current obsessions wednesday: sunglasses needed. these leggings are electric!!!

 dress: belk / belt, capri tights: f21 / shoes: Blowfish Shoes
nails: OPI dating a royal + sally hansen rockstar pink

so this girl is pretty darn happy about last night's DWTS results!
did a little dance around the room. appropriate, right?
but i'm so bummed the season is over. 
what am i gonna do without my hines, karate kid, and chelsea on monday nights?!

well, it's been awhile since we've had a current obsessions post around here. ((oops!))
but hey, we're back with another one today and first on the list of current obsessions...

neon, contrast, and floral.

i louuuuuurve neon and highlight hues (check out my pinterest if you don't believe me). i also had a little fun pairing it with something contrast like an olive green. the hot coral def. gives it amount of shock value to the outfit. 
and the floral print lining my Blowfish Javas - killer!!


i love my popcorn. sometimes just plain butter. 
other times no butter but with lots of parmesean cheese and garlic salt.

made by hank.

i've owned a little madebyhank wallet for sometime now but as the uh-mazing Katie Henry continued to restock her shop with some new colors and designs, i couldn't hold it in any longer. i fell in love with this baby. the colors are perfect-o!

    Oh. I'm currently obsessed with CHORIZO burritos from TAQUERIA ZAMORA in Santa Ana, California.
    As well as Golden Spoons Toffee and Espresso next to each other with lite or regular fudge (whichever looks creamiest?) on the side as well as almonds...
