the big apple

I've been participating in this American Eagle contest where you make a profile and people vote and everything for you to be in the next American Eagle ad. Well, thanks to all my awesome friends and family and other people that have been voting, I was in the top five last week and the week before! That meant that my picture got to be up in Times Square. 
This is like a once-in-a-lifetime thing. I had to go see it. When else am I going to have my picture up in Times Square? (never)
So my mother and I packed up and headed there for the day! We had a short, but awesome trip to one of my favorite cities. 

Stopping in Times Square to see the billboard!
I attempted to make the same face, I failed.

Magnolia Bakery. mmmm. I cannot go to New York without stopping here. They, hands down, have the best banana pudding ever. SO GOOD.

And of course we had to take a stroll through Central Park. If I ever live in New York City, I know where I will be spending a lot of my time. Definitely in Central Park. It's so beautiful and you could just people watch for hours, which is so much fun!

Sadly I didn't get anymore pictures! We only had about nine hours in the city, not enough at all!
I cannot wait to go back!

graphics and blazers

I absolutely can not wait for fall. One of my favorite, simple outfits for fall is a graphic tee or cut-off with a bright blazer! Oh, and you can't forget an awesome necklace to go with it!

graphics and blazers

Above are just two of the endless possibilites you can have with this outfit!
I bought the graphic tee with the plus from Forever 21 the other day and the red blazer from Topshop.
They look so cute together, can't wait for this terribly hot weather to cool down so I can actually wear it together!

american eagle

I entered a contest to be in the next American Eagle ad and I didn't realize it was a popularity contest! So if anybody reads this, it would be absolutely amazing if you would vote for me!
The contest in a nutshell was to put up pictures of yourself in American Eagle jeans. 
Here are my pictures:

I'm wearing my favorite american eagle boyfriend jeans!

You can vote once everyday, please do! Thank you so much!

polka dot pop [first outfit]

Here's to my first post! yay!

[ Jacket: Hollister ]{Top: Kohls}[Pants: Kohls]
{Necklace: Forever 21}[Shoes: Zara]

Okay, this outfit hit multiple birds with one stone. 
1. It's almost all Lauren Conrad things.
2. There are polka dots...
3. and colored denim. 
It's like a dream. 

I absolutely love Lauren Conrads and her line at Kohls. I went last night and bought the polka dot top above, polka dot shorts, and a polka dot blazer. I may have gone a litte overboard with the polka dots. 
Anyways, this is such a fun little casual look. It's a pop of color you can where almost anywhere! You can also tone it down with some flats or a more simple necklace! 

Well, not sure how to end this. So, bye!
