1.  Southwestern Maxi Dress – $33.80

2. Southwestern Denim Shorts – $27.80

I’m not normally a fan of southwestern prints, but there’s something about these two that I like, especially the shorts, I think they’re kind of an unexpected way to show of this kind of print.

3. Kaleidoscopic Jewel Print Tank – $17.80

BE AVAILABLE IN MY SIZE, GODDAMNIT.

4. Bejeweled Peter Pan Collar Top – $23.80

I love these jewel prints, I prefer them to the chain prints that were floating around a while ago (and are still somewhat staggering). It entirely possible I thought this top was charming enough that while doing this wishlist, I just went out and bought it.

By which I mean that it is on it’s way.

5. Polka Dot A-Line Dress w/ Belt – $29.80

6. Sleek Strapless Maxi Dress – $27.80

I feel like I could have 7 different versions of these exact dresses and it still wouldn’t be enough.

By which I mean I already do.

7. Polka Dot Pocket Tank – $12.80

I already have this top in Navy Polka Dot and Tomato, but I want it in all the colours. It is an amazing alternative to that standard tank, especially for work and going out when you want something that’s not quite the same level of casual as sweat pants, but also not so dressy that it’s inappropriate to NOT wear a crown with it.

The in between of those two things is this top.

8. Free Spirit Bandeau – $9.80

Sometimes things are just cute and cheap and that’s all they need to be.

9. Splash-Making Geo Swimsuit – $35.80

While I’m 1,000,000% behind the fatkini trend, this one piece is pretty legit. Maybe not everybody is down with having a LSD inspired third eye on their stomach, but those people will never know the joy of hypnotizing someone with a jelly roll.

OOTD: Black & White

Wooh! Third day in, Black and White. I actually had a hard time with this until I remembered a very cute ASOS dress I had not yet had the pleasure of wearing, and with a day filled with mall hopping and a fancy dinner, a day/night post was absolutely necessary.

Asos Curve Exclusive Spot Print Swing Dress – $22

Day:

Let me tell you something, this dress is as cute as a mother fucker. In person, it is so adorable you’d think it was made by a basket of kittens and puppies. I originally bought it thinking I was throwing caution to the appropriate-for-outdoors wind because the length seemed short, but turns out it’s also practical as fuck. I needed something that was breathable and easy to move in, while still being put together, as I was going to see some ~business contacts~ at the mall, as well as shopping around and getting a pedicure (my days are tough, man). I threw on a simple red heart necklace (Claire’s) to add a little bit colour that wouldn’t battle/over power the whole look. I originally opted for a white tote bag, because it’s the middle of the day and I got shit to carry, but the clutch (Forever 21) gave the look a little bit of sleekness and purposefulness while the tote made it look just a tad bit like a Homer Simpson sack dress.

Night:

This dress is off the goddamn chain at night. I added the waist cinching belt (ASOS) to give the dress some shape, and the natural swing ended up working great with some structure. Paired with some white, black, and gold accessories makes this easily a new favourite look. I literally cannot wait to turn heads with the sway of this dress, it more magnificent than a plastic bag floating in the wind. I was worried a bit that the belt with the dress would make me look pregnant (not because I don’t like the shape, more because I hate children), but the draping was just right that it wasn’t a problem.

The necklace (Aldo) ended up working really well, while I’m not a fan of two different whites in one look, it does manage to give the look some pop without fading into the background the way some others did.

A point worth making, I was trying to avoid swearing and tried to keep the blog a little more professional-seeming? But I got to tell you, I have the vocabulary of a 72 year old grandma that you don’t think swears until she calls you a dumb little fucker for bringing her the wrong pills.

I swear a lot is what I’m saying. Trying to eliminate it felt weird and wrong and horrible and I just won’t do it.

Sincerely, and with all the fucks I can muster,
