Hello! I am back from my break of blogging/social media. In May and June I started my first full time job, moved out into my first apartment, and turned 22. All of those life changes just did not add up to great blogging conditions. Taking a break made me realize how much I had come to enjoy blogging and everything that goes with it. I am so excited to be posting again, especially now that I have a new camera. I want to make changes to improve this blog and for it to be a better reflection of myself.

These photos were taken at the beginning of May with the help of Brooke from In a World of Bees. I had so much fun that day taking lots of outfit photos. It gets hot and humid here in Alabama so during the summer, I live in airy pieces. This top may be something you would normally stay away from for summer since it is black but it is a very light piece so it ends up being perfect. I paired it with these floral shorts to tone them down and I love the way it turned out. To carry on the color I wore cobalt heels. I am more adventurous with my shoes than my tops most of the time.

  • Love those shorts with the classic black! Sounds like you’ve had some great things happening!
