If I had a dollar for every time I wear a different combination of a sleeveless button down and high-waisted skirt, I would be a very rich girl. 

It's strange how an article of clothing can be so new to the pages of this blog, yet so familiar to me. I'm a little surprised that this is the first time this skirt is making an appearance here considering how much I wear it. I bought it off of Etsy over a year ago for about $8 and it's just the most comfortable thing. I'm sure I'm wearing it in at least half of my pictures on Facebook. To say it gets a lot of love from me would be an understatement. 

This shirt is definitely one of my favorite purchases of the summer. Like I said, I can't get enough of sleeveless button downs, so it's always a nice find to come across one that just a little unique. I always get lucky finding really amazing H&M items at Buffalo Exchange because they get marked down for incredible prices. I don't remember the exact price, but this was definitely under $10. Score. 

With three weeks of being home left to go, I'm starting to think of all the California things I need to do before I leave. Most of the things on my list are food-related, like visiting food trucks with my friend, Adam, tomorrow, but there are a few other things as well. I'm supposed to go to a showing of The Room with my friend Whitney in L.A. this weekend, which is my all-time favorite bad movie and I can't wait. I'm a sucker for "movies so bad they're good," so if anyone knows any good ones, please feel free to send them my way.

  1. You always find such great deals! That skirt is so lovely!


  2. thank you for your lovely comment =)))

    really fun pics of yours. your shoes are so cute!!!

  3. yeah, they are :)
    great skirt :)

  4. I can see why this is a go-to look for you, it's adorable as are you in it! I love the print of the skirt and the two colors of the top. It's funny how outfits can be your favorites and not make your blog. I've been living in a printed short most weekends and have yet to put them on my blog, so odd!

  5. That skirt is just gorgeous - I can see why you 'live' in it, I would too! I really need to check out etsy more thoroughly!

    Have a lovely day

  6. High-waisted skirts are definitely one of my loves in life. :) As are oxfords (yours are super cute!) but I have yet to actually make the commitment and buy a pair. Perhaps this fall...

    P.S. Thank you SO much for your ridiculously sweet comment on my blog! Seriously the nicest one yet!

  7. Don't you just love Etsy? I always find the cutest vintage on there. :) That skirt is seriously cute and I love the black and white combo of the top. Is it black, is it white? It's both!! Love it! <3

  10. Hi Elana,

    Thanks for stopping by and your comment-much appreciated. I love it when new readers comment as it leads me to their blog and here I am. I like your style and from the look of these photos alone, I can tell you are fun and bubbly person. I also see you have the same problem as me-spending too much money on clothes and watching endless movies( I love escaping to the world of movies)

  11. That is just the prettiest skirt!! And I'm loving sleeveless tops too, I'm stockpiling them for summer atm :)

  12. i have pieces like that that i wear a lot yet i have never managed to put on the blog (a key print skirt i own comes to mind. i don't know why exactly it doesn't make it, but i wear it often) this skirt you have is really adorable - i can see why you love it. it's a good color and looks good on you! and i keep hearing about buffalo exchange, and i never had before. i think there might be one in philly that maybe i should venture to (but then again, is it worth the tolls i have to pay?)

    anyhow - i hated when i knew i was leaving ohio and had to pick the things i wanted to do before i left. i felt like i needed to do SO much. good luck getting all the things in you want to.
