dress: in a big TEE

I couldn’t resist buying an XXL tee from Walmart for only $3. What should I make with it???

I already have




weekend wardrobe & a celebration


A fun Carrousel ^^ that I wanted to ride, but wasn’t running ūüė¶foggydress_commencement

Kicking off the school year with a celebration + the traditional White Cloak Ceremony!

And yeah you’ve probably seen me wearing this ^^ dress a LOT on this blog…it’s pretty much my summer uniform. Sorry.foggydress_commencementfoggydress_commencement

foggydress_commencementOur family’s ate at the president’s luncheon and walked around Western U campus, which–funny enough–used to be an outdoor mall in downtown Pomona! It is quite a change to come to a much smaller, more intimate school. It’s right next to Antique Row, which I will certainly post about soon. Hope you had a lovely weekend!

This Canadian company sells women’s clothing & jewlery that’s HOT off the runway and easy on the wallet. My yellow + gold necklace is a Kensie find; doesn’t it just scream rays of sunlight?
