I have a great post about my trip to NOLA coming soon to the blog... but I wanted to share this amazing skirt with you all first. Life has been so fun and exciting now that my school schedule has calmed down and work life has picked up! It was awesome to take a trip to New Orleans and this skirt would have fit right in with that crazy crowd.
Happy Birthday to me! LOL
I just have to share this with you guys: I turn 22 today and feel like I'm a young old lady. I went out for dinner and drinks last night and we ended up getting a table at a great night club in town but I just cannot hang like I used to freshman year of college. At 18/19 I would have been right in the center of all the hype but at 22 I was glad to be off to the side by the DJ. (Too sweaty and too many people groping and grinding)
It was fun nonetheless and I truly do have some amazing friends and people in my life that I will forever be grateful for!

Long flowy skirts, choker necklaces and straw bags are HOT right now and this outfit hits all of the marks! During this shoot in this gorgeous part of town we were walking along the shops and spotted this amazing VW bus. I giggled at how perfect it would be for the background of these pictures and hoped that the owner of the vehicle wasn't sleeping in the back of it LOL.
Back on the subject of choker necklaces and straw bags... It always cracks me up when styles return and are bigger than they ever were. I remember in elementary school those jelly choker necklaces were all the rage. Straw bags were the same thing and now you cant find them for less than a hundred dollars in department stores! I however found this beauty for $10 at a Ross. H&M and Target are jumping on the bandwagon and are adding straw clutches and bags to their inventory... shop them while you can!
School is out for the summer and I am so excited to only have one semester left until I graduate! These past two weeks were so filled with school, finals and work that I didn't even have time to do laundry or work out. I finally got my life back together though!! And FINALLY went shopping... I was legitimately having withdrawals (who feels me?)
This was also the first weekend I've gotten to come home to my parents and spend time with them... Just in time for Mothers Day and The Kentucky Derby! Even though I didn't get to physically be at Churchill Downs this year, I was there in spirit and attire lol. My niece wanted to go pick sunflowers and me and my sister (her mom and also fellow blogger) thought it would be a perfect blog opportunity. Little did we know that we would have to fight off bees, spiders, cockroaches and ants all for some pictures! I am not kidding all of the above either landed on me, bit me or crawled on me. #YUCK
All in all though we got some pretty great photos and survived! Even though our mom was laughing at us the whole time with how prissy we were being... And yes I will admit to it now as I write this from the comfort of my couch which is indoors which is also void of bugs.
