My favorite go-to outfit combination this Summer consists of a simple tank top, mini skirt, and a pair of sandals. With all the fun things that there is to do in the Summer, I just want an outfit that I can easily throw on before I walk out the door. The last thing that I want to do is spend countless hours trying to find an outfit that is both cute and comfortable enough to wear in the Summer heat. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen me post pictures of similar outfits to the one that I’m wearing in the past few weeks.This skirt from Madewell has to be my favorite recent find, and I’ve been wearing it all the time. I was lucky enough to walk into Madewell when they were having an extra 40% off sale (which they have often), and I was able to score this skirt and the version in khaki, for about $15 each (they had a lower sale price in-stores than online)! I love the railroad stripe pattern of this skirt, because it kind of reminds of things that I used to wear when I was a little kid. It has a very subtle playful feel to it, which is perfect for fun outings.


In other news, I broke my promise to limit myself to one episode of OITNB a week, and bing-watched the rest of Season 2. The good thing to come out of that is that I can now fully resume with my life without worrying what will happen to the inmates at Litchfield. The sad news is that I’ve realized that I have no self-control, and I now have to wait months until the premiere of Season 3. I have to say that I’m glad that the World Cup is currently airing on T.V., because it is giving me something to look forward to at the moment. Watching futbol matches also made for good bonding time with my Dad this Father’s Day weekend.
A couple of posts ago, I had mentioned that I was going to visit a couple of friends in Portland. I’m glad to say that I’m finally making that trip at the end of this week, and I couldn’t be any more excited! My friends have promised me a fun-filled weekend consisting of activities such as berry-picking, drinking coffee and beer, and exploring new places. The last time I visited the city of Portland was in 2011, and I definitely didn’t get to fully experience all the wonderful things the city has to offer. I’m a huge fan of Portlandia, and I can’t wait to visit many of the sites made famous by the show. But, more importantly, I can’t wait to be reunited with my wonderful friends Candace, Kelsey and Laura. I haven’t seen them in ages, and talking to them over Skype just doesn’t cut it sometimes!
I’m also excited to come back from Portland, because I’ve made a goal to start working on a new creative venture when I get back home from my trip. I have so many fun ideas that I can’t wait to share with all of you in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned…
