White Hot, White Hot

W

I’m sure you’ve already been bashed over the head with hype over the all-white trend for Summer ’14 — I have been, too — but really, how can you not be obsessed? An all-white ensemble just screams fresh and breezy, a perfect combo to combat summer heat.

All white everything, word to Mary Jane

White hot summer

If you’re a bit hesitant about going for the all-out, in-your-face, white-out look, you can adjust the amount of white to your comfort level.

So go ahead, climb aboard the trend train (if you haven’t already!)

Goodwill Goddess

Goodwill Goddess

I was sitting at home with an itch to spend money and I thought to myself, “I’m gonna see what’s on sale at ASOS.” But the more practical part of my brain reminded me of all the spending I’ve been doing lately so, instead of spending a bunch of money on one or two amazing items plus shipping, I spent $13 on five amazing items at Goodwill! And yes, it’s still impulsive spending, but I like to call it “responsibly impulsive”. (It counts, okay?)
Anyway, here’s a list of what I got:

A high-waisted, A-line, houndstooth miniskirt. This skirt (pictured above) is beyond adorable. Paired with a white crop top or a cool blank tank, it’s perfect for summer hangs in the city.

Black, 4″ platform ankle booties. I am still in shock over finding these at Goodwill. These boots (also pictured above) make any outfit incredible. I’m currently wearing them with a black pleated school-girl-style skirt and a white cropped t-shirt.

A black, pleated school-girl-style skirt. Yes, yes, the skirt I am wearing now with the black ankle booties was also picked up at goodwill today. It’s actually a children’s XL skirt, but I cinched the adjustable waist until it fit my waist perfectly and now it’s an absolute dream. It definitely reminds me of the American Apparel tennis skirts I’ve been seeing all over recently.

A blue, ceramic box in the shape of a triangle. I don’t really have a lot to say about this but it was a cool find!

All in all it was a surprisingly successful trip to Goodwill and I’m beyond happy with what I picked up. Now, one last thing before I send you on your way (if you’ve been kind enough to read this far) is that I do have photos for a lot more interesting content! I swear! The only problem is that, at the moment, I have no way of getting those photos onto my laptop. So, right now I’m waiting on a memory card reader to arrive in the mail and those awesome posts will finally make it out of my drafts and onto my blog.

Weekly Inspiration 5/21

Perhaps I should stop labeling these posts “weekly”…

Anyway, before you continue on to the beautiful succession of interesting images I have provided for you below, I have a quick little announcement: I’m opening an Etsy store! Items I will be selling include handmade body-chains, necklaces, and chain headpieces, up-cycled clothing, and homemade body scrubs with customer-unique painted lids (these may not be available as soon as the store opens, but they will be on sale not too long after). It’s a bit of an eclectic array of goodies, all made with care and good vibes. The store is not live yet, but you’ll be the first to know when it is!

Okay, okay. Go on. Scroll down. Be inspired.
