finding peace in the summer heat

As if these photos couldn't get more random...but perhaps consider this my photo collage of current little fashion loves that recently entered my life coupled with the new paint job to my "humble abode." First off, I can't stress enough about how much I'm idolizing this long-time fabric favorite we all know as crochet. Whenever I'm scouring shops for a quick retail fix I always find some cosmic magnetic pull to this style, whether it be in the form of dresses, frilly blouses, headbands and even swimwear. Next up are my most recent addition, those yummy chiffon platform wedges in the first two photos -- while I sincerely adore the fierce Givenchy wedges to death, these pleasantly satiate my shoe craving without damaging my wallet. Also, they're remarkably comfortable as though I'm walking on chic marshmallows.

Did a fresh new paint job to my crib space with a calming hue of "Greek Villa" white. With the summer heat beating upon us, I felt the need to find another outlet of "cooling down" since the AC wasn't always enough. I posted my room awhile back (check it out here) when it was a bold peacock blue-ish color (inspired by Bradshaw lol). Now I think after several spontaneous paint jobs (and there were MANY), this white hue whispers complete perfection, especially when paired with my classic "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster that I'll cherish for life (thanks to SFGIRLBYBAY).

I love both of your shoes, the Givenchy-esque wedges and the Jessica Simpson Dany's! I just bought a pair of the Dany's in tan, and they are soooo scary to walk in! I envy you looking so comfortable in them :)
