So, like, let’s travel?

Haven’t posted in a hot min. I planned to create new content this weekend. But I spent the majority of my Saturday planning my outfits for my next weekend for a lil festie and then Sunday I had brunch with a good friend & dragged my boo to the pool. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking & as I get older I’m looking to gain more out of my life. Namely I want to gain more experiences & less material stuff. Because of this I decided this week I would travel more and I already had two upcoming opportunities to do this but I just couldn’t bring myself to commit. But today that changed! So, I’m planning a trip to Pittsburgh over my Thanksgiving break and *super importantly* FINALLY going to red rocks in Colorado at the end of September! I couldn’t be more excited! Gonna get a lil funky with my buddies at a Big Gigantic show then I’m going to meet my boyfriend’s extended family at Thanksgiving!

Anyway, I want to challenge you to take a hard look at your life? Are you living it for you? Or (as me and my friend Lindsay discussed today) are you being a “sheeple” just doing what “expected” of you? It’s really nice to know I’m not the only one going through an interesting time in my life reevaluating what I truly want from it. If you would like a lil pep talk you can come to the church of holly & Lindsay and we will give u a lil sermon on non conformity and living the life YOU want. Not what others want or expect.

Just some food for thought.

Kimono time

Clearly if I’m gonna do this I need to pick up better “modeling” skills 😝 .

Y’all I totally recreated this outfit from the stock pic on the website with the kimono I have on here! I usually go to Pinterest for inspiration but I happened to like how they styled it. I was headed to a street festival in town so the heels were just for the pictures! 🙃 oh and deft same for the hat. Love the hat (similar) but it’s made of wool and is deft meant for fall or winter.

I know I’ve lamented about this on my insta about my editing styles but y’all it really is hard. I want to stand out but I just haven’t honed my skills yet. I truly need something that sets me apart but just haven’t figured out the right concoction of edits to do so. In the meantime I’m also trying to teach myself to use a DSLR camera! Not quite a beginner tool or as easy to use as my iPhone but I’ll get there!

Until next time! 🤗

Walking Advertisement

It’s my last weekend of summer before I head back to work next week! So I took advantage of the nice weather and went to the lake with my friend John! I’m obsessed with the lily pad! And tbh I might as well be a walking advertisement for White Claw this summer. 🤦🏼‍♀️ if you haven’t tried them, go do it!

1969 Inspired

Y’all I’m obsessed with these pants. The colorful trend this summer continues with these multicolored flares! I paired them with this loose white camisole. Tried to do a body suit but the pants were a little see through so it showed too much for my comfort! I was going to wear my gold layered choker necklace which would have looked better than the velvet black choker but unfortunately I broke it 😦 BUT I’m okay with how this choker turned out!

My boyfriend hates these yellow glasses (similar) but I thought they really worked well with this retro themed style. I linked a similar pair because apparently target has sold out of them!

And lastly y’all I would have worn my peep toe perforated toms booties but I’ve pinched a nerve or something in my right foot and I just couldn’t wear heels this night! I decided to wear these glitter sandals I bought a couple of summers ago from target. They’re sold out but I’ve linked a similar pair from Nordstrom. I will say my pants dragged a little bit on the ground though. I’m 5’4″ for reference.

Ok! Until next time!

4th of July

img_1491

Ok! Blog post coming in late! However, I couldn’t go on without sharing my Fourth of July outfit! It was perfect for watching fireworks in the heat, and continuing to look cute while doing that. I whole heartedly endorse this denim overalls dress. Works as a swimsuit cover up or not. Since it is denim, that has less give so I bought this in a large. It’s not as fitted in the waist like id like it to be but it’s still very comfortable. Under the top I wore a black Bralette. I am a huge supporter of those for summer heat in Arkansas.

My shoes were an impulse buy and not only are they glittery/sparkly and just scream me, they are SO comfortable!

Happy belated birthday America!
