the sun goes down. the stars come out. and all that counts is the here and now.

 striped tee, mint sunglasses, red heart ring, vest: f21 / pants: tjmaxx / 
necklace: c/o My Remedy Design / natalia flats: c/o Blowfish Shoes / watch: fossil / camera : JoTotes 

somebody is headed on a road trip. spend some time with her man. probably be treated to some Panda express (chow mein and orange chicken. yum.) and then she's getting on a jet plane. and in between all of that she will indulge in Mickey-dee's, Chex Mix, and candy (my travel snack favorites) and bury herself in her seat for the next few hours reading Pandemonium and magazines. she might sneak in a couple winks but she has a feeling that she won't be getting much sleep this weekend. she'll then dream about cupcakes, laughing late into the night, pillow fights, being creative, and being a rockstar. 

then she'll wake up in AZ and it all be for reals.

***
and you might recognize this outfit from last weekend. wore it to a mini photo shoot and i think it might be one of my fave combos -  stripes and cobalt blue with that extra splash of turquoise. yum. and oh, the title has nothing to do with the post - other than that glad you came by the Wanted is totally on repeat these days. 

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}

  22. Very cute outfit, and I love your hair. I did that a few months ago but only a small strip of hair, not the whole bottom. It looks awesome. I also really love your bag, I've recently been searching for cute camera bags, and this post gave me a new avenue to look up :)
