Maui wharf stroll

This outfit is actually impromptu because prior to airport departure time this is the closest thing I had to jeans. Oops. How was I supposed to know Maui is way more breezy, beautiful, Covergirl? 😛

I picked the perfect day to pair my Target tunic with my favorite head accessory, a mustard-yellow turban. Would you be brave enough to wear this outfit in front of tourists and California cool people alike? I also love how the ikat printed platforms match the greenery on my shirt! When in Rome..do as the Romans do! 😉

Let’s play a game since we’re all bored. Who do you think overpacked?

Red. White. and Orange.

Happy 4th of July 2012 everyone! Hope everyone is having an awesome independence day full of family, fun, friends, white wine, barbeques, and THANKFULLNESS. You get my drift 😛 LOL. I just wanted to take the time out and say how blessed I am to live in this country. We all go through the day to day grind of work and life and sometimes forget what an amazing nation we live in of FREEDOM and individual rights.

I wanted to share with you my chic outfit (that’s SO not red, white, and BLUE) of what I wore during America’s birthday. My uncle stopped in town for the day so we went to the local military base and went SHOPPINGGGG YESSSS 😀 *um can we say no taxes?* followed by a bite to eat at Cheddars, our first time there, and of course the day trip would not be complete without TJMAXX. <<More haulage from ya girl maxxinista to come!

But anyways BACK to my quick outfit of the day!!

buttoned stripe top: H&M
orange t-shirt: J Crew
bow belt: H&M
grey denim shorts: Hco

Can you guess which piece cost the most??

Pollyanna side twist into a braided low chignon

Dare I say orange is slowly growing on me?!?!

Waiting for the train…or an antique bike..or a dapper air pilot to sweep me off my feet.

Super easy to create in less than 30 seconds!

Rock of Ages~Chicago edition

Rock on…Tom Cruise?

The above promo image is of the movie set to release in a few short weeks! If you are not familiar with ROA, sorry for party rockin’! JK hahaha but all jokes aside..I’m pumped because my mom and I have tickets to see the broadway musical in Chicago 🙂 Nope, not New York but Chi-town! When I asked my aunt which musicals were showing in the Windy City she said this one. I really had my eye on Evita but that wasn’t showing 😦 Post living in New York I’ve been dying to see the Rock musical ever since!

Now I have the chance and I’m pretty sure I’ll be clueless the whole time they’re singing 80’s beats but that’s OKAY! What I lack in eighties culture I’m sure someone will be jiving in the theater seats. But do you know what I’m MORE excited about than previewing the musical? Putting my edgy rocker spin on something floral! Feast your eyes on my outfit I plan to style for the return of classic rock and turn up that Aerosmith! BD
