Apologies in advance for the long post!

Well… It looks like I took another short hiatus from the blog. It always breaks my heart a little bit when I have to do that because I truly enjoy editing my photos, writing my posts and just overall blogging. What I’ve been up to- I had an amazing 4th of July weekend is Fresno! Yes, I said Fresno. A friend of mine grew up there so a group of 15 of us went down for the weekend to swim, set off fireworks, BBQ, and of course get competitive with drinking games and a little Cards Against Humanity. So, after that trip I had a lot of (real) work to catch up on and not enough time to devote to my blog.

I am also redoing my bedroom right now which is a bit time consuming! Stay tuned for a post on how to redecorate on a budget!

Anyways- a bit about this outfit. This dress is actually a hand-me-down from my Sister! Score! I have to say I am pretty blessed with a Sister who has amazing style and is a huge inspiration of mine when it comes to clothing. She is also a hairdresser and cosmetologist so it doesn’t hurt to have someone to teach me new techniques.
