IMHO.

 sweater, skirt: forever 21 / camera bag: c/o JoTotes
timo wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes / neon chains necklace: c/o Le Mode Accessories

capri suns (especially splash cooler!) should be a staple for every summer day.
orly's passion fruit pink nail polish is the best shade of hot matte pink.
inception is still one of the best movies ever made ft. one of the best actors alive.
red velvet cupcakes are the best cupcakes on the planet.
jessica sanchez should have won american idol (sorry, julie!).
nacho libre quotes are freaking hilarious. 
neon colors should always sneak their way into summer outfits.
random dancing in the car to Call Me Maybe is a must (do imitate harvard baseball team).
thoughtful snail mail and hilarious text messages can make anyone's day. 
if someone is having a bad day, he or she needs to read this.
every now and then, everyone should throw off their routine - it's rather refreshing.  
and skirts are so way more fun when they are asymmetrical. 


but what do i know? that's all just in my humble opinion

much love.
{happy wednesday, friend.}
