Dress - c/o Chicwish, Oxfords - Steve Madden

I absolutely adore this vintage-inspired dress from Chicwish! They have the cutest indie clothes, but still have a great selection to match my really girly/dolly style. It's probably the most comfortable dress I've ever owned too, which is saying a lot. It'll be perfect for the summer and when classes start again.
As for the hair, I tried for Merida-inspired curls, from Disney-Pixar's new movie, Brave. More on that movie later :)

X'S & BOWS,


I recently became a part of the Julep VIP Beauty Blogger program, and in return, Julep sent me a box from their Julep Maven collection to review!
Julep, similarly to other sites, has a program where you can receive products from their store once a month in a cute little box based off of your personal style. You take a quiz on their page and, when completed, they match you with a set of nail care and beauty products from their store that they think you would most like!



After taking the quiz, I got the Classic With A Twist style profile as my results, which fit me perfectly!


The box itself was packaged quite adorably! I mean, of course I loved the little pink bag and ribbon the nail polish came in.


The box included two polishes in Susie (the mint shade) and Niecy (the bright pink shade), "The Best Pedi Creme Ever!" by Julep, and cute little toe separators. There was also two flyers about being a Maven and described what was in my box.


Now, for the fun part! Above, I painted my nails with Niecy. Naturally, I chose the hot pink shade to put as a base. I loved it. Two coats of the polish and it was finished! As of right now, I've been wearing it for about three days, and it's yet to chip. GLORIOUS.
Not to mention, I LOVELOVELOVE the fact that Julep nail vernis is 3-free, meaning it doesn't carry icky toxins like formaldehyde, often found in other nail polish brands - GROSS. I loved the square bottle and brush, too! I hate when I lay down polish and it decides to roll off the counter; with Julep, you don't have to worry about that!




I decided to get a little creative with the second polish, and used it for an accent nail. I painted my ring finger with the Susie color and let completely dry. I then took a piece of tape and put over the nail, and used it as a guide to take Niecy again and create a colored French manicure effect.
Kind of turned out like a reverse watermelon, but I love it! Super summery and definitely on trend.

Romper - c/o Lulus.com; Oxfords - Nordstrom;  Bag - c/o Lulus.com; Necklace - Forever21; Sunglasses - Kate Spade

I am obsessed with this look from Lulus.com! The 'County Fair Pink Eyelet Lace Romper' is just perfect for summer. J'adore the color, and of course, the bow in the back! I love that it has pockets, too.

And, of course, the 'Star-Structured Blush Pink Purse' is the perfect little cross body bag, big enough to store the essentials but easy to grab when on the go! I've been eyeing the Kate Spade Essex Scout for a while, and this is a good alternative! The best part? The buckles on the front have hidden magnets so you don't have to fidget with unbuckling every time you go to grab a piece of gum. The blush pink goes with everything too!

Don't forget!

X'S & BOWS,



 Tank tops and huge bows, glitter Jacks and stuffed animal bears? A wishlist so random yet adorable, it could have only be created by yours truly.

1. Bows Over Bros Tank - From the color to the text to the little pink bow on the back, I'm completely obsessed with this adorable tank!

2. Tiffany & Co. Silver Bow Pendant - Okay, normally I'm not a huge fan of pendants, but this one is simply adorable. I mean, how could it not be? It's from Tiffany's! I love the silver since I tend to wear more silver jewelry than gold, but they have it in a rose gold color that's beautiful as well.

3. Medium Curious Cub Brave Plush - Yes, I really am five years old, but how cute is this bear? It's from Disney Pixar's new movie Brave, and I was really close to giving in and buying it after visiting Downtown Disney earlier this week. I'm really excited for the movie, though. It looks like it'll be really cute! And no, this really had nothing to do with bows, although the movie was previous set to be titled The Bear And The Bow. Close enough.

4. OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection in I'm All Ears - I'm a sucker for OPI polish, and this new collection featuring the mouse queen of bows herself is gorgeous! I love the shocking pink color, and from the looks of the pictures I've found, it has a bit of shimmer to it. It's everything I've ever wanted in a nail polish shade.

5. Extra Large Monogram Hair Bow - What's better than a normal hair bow? An EXTRA LARGE one with a monogram! I'm a little more than obsessed with it. It comes in all different colors, making it that much harder to decide which one I want. Nonetheless, if the monogram doesn't have you convinced, the 6 1/2" - 7" size will.
If you're a little more daring, check out the Extra EXTRA large size here! And yes, I want that one too...monogrammed.

6. Jack Rogers Glitter Navajos in Pink -  I have this love/hate relationship with Jacks depending on my mood. Sometimes I think they're super cute, other times I feel like they're overrated. In any case, this pair of glittery sandals changed my mind. Of course I love sparkly things, but pink too? I'm sold. If only they'd go on sale...

What's on your wishlist for this week?
