Wipe Away Those Summer Blues

Summer is sadly coming to an end. Soon it will be time to go back to school and break out the sweaters and boots. Luckily, we still have most of August to enjoy before we officially have to kiss summer good bye. Don’t let those summer blues get you down!

I have spent my summer doing tons of fun things, such as swimming, reading, and finding new places around my town to take great pictures for Instagram. One of my favorite spots to snap a few shots is outside of my local library. They have such pretty flowers that make any picture a million times nicer.

In this picture, I am wearing one of my favorite outfit combinations of the summer. A baby blue peplum shirt and these floral shorts that I was able to get on sale. The shirt is a T-shirt material making it very comfortable for everyday wear. Shades of blue are some of my favorite colors to wear all year round. I especially love to wear lighter blues for summer. The shorts are more of a nicer material with embroidery detail giving the outfit more of a put together vibe.

As for accessories, I have been really into sunglasses. Every time I take a trip to the mall, I always seem to be leaving with a new pair of sunglasses. Not only are they perfect for protecting your eyes from the sun, they also really can pull together an outfit. I really like the ones that I am wearing here. They are a club master style with a clear frame and gold details. I’m also wearing my favorite gold watch that I got at Michael Kors.

Finally for the shoes that I am currently obsessed with: they are sneakers that are totally the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever put on my feet. They are also so easy to slide on. I prefer sneakers over sandals because sneakers are more practical to walk around in during the summer.

5 Things You Need To Do At Disney World

Every little girl dreams of going to Disney World. Even as we grow up, the magic of Disney manages to always stick with us. Summer is obviously the season for vacations, so if you’re lucky enough to find yourself going to Disney World anytime soon, here are five things you must do.

1—Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar. First off, you definitely need to try out the Mickey Mouse ice cream bar. There is just something about this particular treat that makes it taste even more delicious than any other ice cream you’ve ever eaten. It’s a perfect way to help cool you down while walking around the park in the crazy Florida heat. These amazing desserts can be found at pretty much any snack cart around all four Disney World theme parks.

2—Expedition Everest Roller Coaster. If you can describe yourself as a dare devil, Disney World has no shortage of thrilling roller coasters. My personal favorite roller coaster would be Expedition Everest located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. It has drops, turns, and even goes backwards in the dark. I would really recommend checking that ride out.

3—The Great Movie Ride. So if roller coasters aren’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of other rides that are less scarier options. One example would be The Great Movie Ride located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is an easy, sit-down ride that takes you through many classics such as Tarzan, The Wizard of Oz, and Casablanca just to name a few. The special effects featured on this ride were incredible and gave you an amazing inside look on some of your favorite movies.

4—World Showcase. Next, you have to visit the World Showcase in Epcot. The World Showcase features 11 different countries such as Morocco, Italy, Norway, and many more. Each country is set up with iconic features that really make you feel like you’ve just stepped foot into that country. For example, France has a replica of the Eiffel Tower and macaron sandwiches that give you just a little taste of France.

5—Happily Ever After Fireworks. Lastly, Magic Kingdom just got a new firework spectacular called Happily Ever After. I absolutely love fireworks and there is nothing that compares to standing in front of Cinderella’s castle and watching amazing bursts of color light up the night sky. I think the firework show describes just how magical Disney World truly is.

How I Style a T-Shirt Dress for the Summer

With summer finally arriving, I have been doing plenty of shopping to prepare for the warm weather. I’m super excited to finally break out my shorts and put away the jeans. It hasn’t been super warm yet in New York, but if the temperature manages to get up to 60 degrees, I will definitely be happy with that.

One of my favorite things to wear during the summer is comfy and casual T-shirt dresses; these dresses have been very trendy for the past couple of summers. I love how easy they are to throw on when you don’t really feel like putting together an entire outfit. Plus, they are sure to keep you cool in the summer heat. My dress has a tie-dye pattern that I have been seeing all over stores recently. I purchased my dress from American Eagle and luckily I was able to get it on sale. For my shoes, I decided to go for a pair of white lace-up espadrille flats that I purchased from H&M for $30.

To accessorize, I went with a classic pair of black Ray-Ban sunglasses that go with anything. My sunglasses are the wayfarer frame and I think they really compliment my face shape. My purse is from Rebecca Minkoff and I love that it has tassels on the zipper to go with the tie-dye vibes from the dress. Finally, I finished off my look with this silver Michael Kors watch. Watches are a perfect way to accessorize while also being very useful to check the time.
