          I recently found these shorts at Plato's Closet.  I love the way they are just basic high-wasted denim shorts.  It is so hard to find high-wasted shorts that aren't super short, a weird dye color,  or distressed, that are also affordable.  I am wearing them with my only bodysuit.  I'm still not really sure how I feel about bodysuits because they are ridiculously tight and inconvenient to wear.  However, I do love that this one says "I grew up with mermaids."  I have a bit of an obsession with mermaids.  I used to wear bodysuits in elementary school and I loved them.  I think that's the last time I wore one.  Also, I will be selling this bag on my Poshmark store: @fancyfashcastle.

Formal Dresses from Babyonlinedress

          Since prom season is right around the corner, I thought I would let you know about an online formal dress shop.  It's called  Babyonlinedress has dresses for all formal occasions.  The nice thing about this store is that they offer custom sizing.  You can purchase one of their basic numbered sizes or put in your own measurements.  Of course this means there will be less of a chance of needing to pay for alterations.  They also offer worldwide shipping!

          If you are looking for your prom dress for 2017, there are plenty of options to choose from.  These are a few of my favorite dresses.  The first dress is also a prom dress.  I love how it looks a bit more casual.  The colors of the lace and chiffon look really pretty together too.  It's super feminine.  It looks like the kind of prom dress that you could wear all night with zero wardrobe malfunctions.  If you live in the U.S. check out the prom dresses U.S. site.  There are also less formal options for homecoming.  This beautiful blue dress is from the homecoming dresses category.  I love so many of these.  You could also wear a lot of these for other occasions like weddings, or graduations.  

          The other dress that I love here is the third one.  It reminds me of a roman style dress.  It looks sleek and beautiful.  My favorite aspect is the bodice.  I love the way it drapes off the shoulders.  The fabric is what really makes it as well.  It's one of the evening dresses that you can wear to a variety of occasions.  It looks like it would be perfect to wear to a super fancy dinner, or some thing of the sort.

         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.

DRESS: Romeo & Juliet Couture | SUNGLASSES: Monki (ASOS) | FLATS: H&M (still available in store) | CHOKER: Zaful

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.

SKIRT: H&M | TOP: H&M | BOOTS: Steve Madden | PURSE: H&M | SUNGLASSES: Zero UV

          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!
