         My sister came to visit from Florida for a few days.  It was a few days before Easter.  We did a bunch of fun things and one of them was go to Turkey Run State Park.  It's my second favorite Indiana State Park.  If you aren't from around here, I'm guessing you have never been.  Not many people come to Indiana as a destination.  I have to say, it's a surprising little gem in the middle of nowhere.  There are a bunch canyons and waterfalls, a river where you can canoe, horses, and an inn. The trails are really fun because you have to walk through the waterfall at certain points.  There are ladders you have to climb and a suspension bridge.  If you pass through Indiana and are nearby, I highly recommend you stop.  Turkey Run is located about halfway down the state on the west side.  Check out my blog post from the last time I went HERE!

          Hey guys! I'm sure you all know what Zaful is by now but I wanted to talk about some of their items.  They have some really amazing styles for affordable prices.  It's a great place to look for super trendy items.  If you are looking for a specific trend that you want to try, but are unsure if you should invest a lot, you should try Zaful.  They have a ton of options of black lace-up dresses and button up shirt dresses.  I have selected some of my favorites of each.
          Lace-up dresses are still in style and I think the trend will be super popular this summer.   Black lace-up dresses are perfect for occasions or going out.  I love the embroidery on the first one I have selected.  The second one is really nice because it's pretty minimal.  The lace-up detail is the main attraction.  
          Button up shirt dresses are really cute too.  I think they are also perfect for summer because they would be fun to wear over a swimsuit or out to a picnic.  They are super casual and classic.  Zaful has many varieties.  I love this pink one because it's so pretty.  The color is super feminine.  The last one is really nice because of the embroidery.  Once again, I love embroidery.

Happy Easter everybunny!🐣🐰  This is my Easter dress this year.  We had one celebration on Easter Eve and one on Easter with different family members.  This is the dress that I wore on Easter Eve.  My sister came to visit from Florida so we have been doing tons of fun things the past few days.  We went to the beach before going to my grandma's house (where I took these pictures).  I got this dress last summer but haven't had a chance to wear it.  It's pretty lucky because I always like having new dresses for holidays and events.  They just feel more special that way.  I also got these flats from H&M the other day.  They were only $3! I don't normally go for a ballet flat but I love the gold and I know they are supposed to be super trendy for spring.  I was just really drawn to them and couldn't pass them up for such a cheap price.

          Hello guys! I hope everyone is having a good week.  Mine has been pretty good but I have been sick lately.  I am pretty much better though.  I have some really exciting things coming up this year that I have been starting to sort out this week.  😃
          This outfit is a combination of a bunch of items that I have had for a while.  The jacket is probably the oldest.  I got it on super sale at Rue 21 a few summers ago.  It was just before I went on a trip with my family to the Pacific Northwest.  I was desperate for a jacket to take and I couldn't find one.  I quickly grabbed this one and was never even sure if I like it our not.  After having it for a while, I have taken quite a liking to it.  It's surprising how well it fits and how nice it feels for how cheap it was.  I never really find things at Rue 21 because I find the quality to be not even worth the small amount of money.  This was just an exception I guess.

          Happy Spring! It's finally getting warm enough to wear things that aren't necessarily thick winter clothes.  I put together this outfit.  I got the top and skirt both from H&M on Black Friday.  I like the way they look together because they are the same basic color scheme.  It's a bit chaotic but I still think it works well.  The print on the skirt just makes me so happy.  It's the kind of skirt that you can wear on a tropical holiday or the dead of winter with tights.  It's just so versatile.  And of course I am wearing my favorite black booties.  They go with so many of my outfits!


Prom Season with Formal Dress Australia

Formal Dresses Brisbane


Sadly, I never went to any of my proms in High School.  Everybody said I would regret it, but it was too awkward, and too much effort.  I must say that I do regret it a bit because as you get older you realize that there are very few formal events in life.  I thought that I'd have plenty occasions to wear a fancy dress, so I didn't really care.  My senior year I was camping during prom.  My parents didn't give me enough money to get a dress that I actually liked so I didn't even try.  For me, it is really only about the dress.  There were a lot less places to find a pretty, affordable dress when I was of prom age (10-11 years ago).  


I know it's coming up on prom season for many of you guys out there.  If you haven't got your dress yet you can find a beautiful one from Formal Dress Australia, for my Australian readers.  They ship to a few other countries as well, including America.  If you are from Adelaide, check out Formal Dresses Adelaide



Do you notice a trend in all of these dresses that I have selected? I really love dresses with lots of flow-y volume.  Many of them are made out of varieties of tulle.  I also love a lot of embellishment, which is not surprising.  I think all of these dresses are super pretty.  One great thing about them is that many come in a variety of colors.  I think the blue one is my favorite.

Off-the-Shoulder Eyelet


STRAPPY COLD SHOULDER LACE CUTWORK BLOUSE: Yoshop | SORTS: Levis | PURSE: Forever 21 | PINK FRAMELESS MIRRORED SUNGLASSES: Yoshop | SANDALS: Forever 21

          This top and sunglasses are from Yoshop.com.  I am obsessed with both of them! They are both so pretty and summery.  I can't wait to wear them again.  We had a random 80 degree day this week, where I was able to dress warm.  It's been pretty cold though.  I think this whole outfit is a really good summer combo.  I wish I would have worn a choker, but next time I will.  What I love about the top is how it slants down when it goes off your shoulder.  It's a nice unique detail.  It reminds me of one of my favorite labels, Alice McCall.  😍
