A Slice of Paradise



Happy Monday, y'all!  I know that a lot of bloggers are transitioning into fall fashion, but where I live, we're still in the dog days of summer, and that's just not going to happen yet!  I'm kind of glad that the weather is so warm... It means I'll get to wear this pretty little caftan again before Labor Day!

This weekend, the young professionals board that I sit on held a Polynesian themed event, and this is the exact look that I went with.  I had no idea just how easy caftans were because this is the only one that I own, but now I'm ready to stock my closet with them.  Despite the length of the sleeves, I stayed cool sitting outside and working the registration table.

In other news, you may have noticed that my eyelashes are going a little crazy right now.  (I've received some negative feedback regarding their appearance, to which I reply with please get a life.)  I've decided to let my eyelash extensions go, and I've got a few stragglers that just won't give up.  I'll have a full post up about my experience with lash extensions soon, but in the meantime, just bare with me as I grow these babies out.

Also, a huge shout out to my aunt for taking this set of blog photos for me in her slice of paradise back yard.  (The gorgeous blue pool that you see in some of my Instagram photos is also hers!)  My aunt actually gave me the DSLR I shoot with as a graduation present, and she is the official photographer of all family events, so it was so fun to shoot with her!

What did you get into this weekend?  And is your style focused more on summer or fall right now?

  1. Whoever had the crazy notion that it was appropriate to give you negative feedback on your eyelashes is such a psycho. I'm sorry but you're gorgeous and adorable and sweet, which clearly means haters are gonna hate. Anyways not trying to focus on the negative here, you look so cute in this Lilly caftan. Yay for summer, I'm all for embracing summer looks until mid September (when it starts to cool down here).

  10. Love the Lily outfit! I totally know what you mean about lash extension! I had them for a while but the maintenance was tricky! I'm looking forward to hearing your experience with them!

  11. I agree with Jordyn -- whoever gave you negative feedback about your eyelashes is ridiculous! You look beautiful no matter what. And I love that Lilly caftan on you, it's so fun that you could wear it to a Polynesian-themed event!

  15. That dress is so easy and breezy -- and I'm with you on not transitioning to fall just quite yet! It's still sooooo hot where I live, can't imagine wearing anything but loose, flowy dresses.
