Hi everyone!  I'm keeping this post very short today.  The reason being is that I am planning some topics on my blog that I feel would be of interest and beneficial to my readers.  So expect to start reading some health & beauty tips, and of course some controversial topics within the next posts.  I'm baaaack! :)

Have a great Tuesday and I'll post again really soon.  Thank you SO MUCH for reading!

This outfit has quite a bit of history behind it.  My shoes were purchased way back in 2002.  They were super cheap because I bought them on sale.  I wish I had a better picture of just the shoes.  You can't see the cute little bows on my toes (unintentional rhyme).  These beautiful lace inset pants were given to me by my friend (and family friend), Annie.  She recently moved out of state and gave me what seems like a life time supply of clothing lol.  I always admired her fashion sense and now I own a small nugget of her closet :)  So if you're reading this, Annie, thank you again!  We miss you and can't wait to see you again.

And thank you to my new followers and readers.  I wish I had a Google Friend Connect button on my blog.  It would be much easier for you to follow me that way.  I apologize that I don't have one...I don't think Google allows that feature on new blogs (you're HORRIBLE, google!)

Also, I want to give a shout out to my blogger buddy Sophia @ http://lasophialasophia.blogspot.com  She mentioned my blog yesterday, but that's not why I want to mention her.  If you have an extra minute today, Sophia (and her bun in the oven) would greatly appreciate it if you voted for her in this competition here: http://www.victoriagardensie.com/project-style/56/entry/357?hub=/project-style/56  Her outfit is not only fabulous, but this versatile look would look good on virtually any body type (yes, even YOURS!).  She sure knows how to dress.   Good luck in this contest, Sophia!  I'll be voting for you like a crazy lady.

Alright everyone, have a great weekend!

Gingham Casual

Gingham_casual_1 Gingham_casual_2 Gingham_casual_3 Scalloped blouse:  Vintage
Gingham shorts:  Zara
Plain white shoes:  Keds
Pink leather bag:  Vintage
Lips:  Mac lipstick in "Girl About Town"
Dog: His name is Oso

These pictures were taken on Friday.  My boyfriend and I were dog-sitting, so we took this little guy for a walk down to the Farmer's Market after breakfast.  This outfit was perfect for the walk.  However, it was an abnormally hot day.  By the end of our walk, I was wishing for a nice cool breeze!

A fun little fact about my bag:  I've had it since I was in the second grade!  I had forgotten that I had it in storage and was recently reunited with it a few weeks ago.  I like the pop of vibrant pink with this otherwise preppy outfit.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Dress: Topshop
Purse: Vintage
Shoes: BCBG
Lips: Mac lipglass in "Russian Red"

You may remember this dress from my post about a year ago (if you'd been following me before).  This is the popular crochet insert dress from Topshop.  It's a very light weight cotton dress that is perfect for those hot summer days in California.  This has got to be one of my favorite items in my closet.  The skirt actually has more volume than it looks like.  The wind was blowing, so it was hard to get a good shot of it.

Hope you're all having a good weekend...if anyone is reading at this point ;)

 Hi again, everyone! It's been a few months, but I finally have a blog again :) I've been trying to get in the hang of it for the past week or so. These pictures were taken about a week ago. Hope you like them. I'm a bit slouchy in the second picture... I'm a little self conscious about my posture in that picture, but I like everything else about that particular post, so I'm keeping it. :)

 On another note, I'm going to do another outfit post today because I've been taking pictures in preparation for this blog. So I have quite a few outfits lined up for you all :) xoxo Azu
