May Flowers

Express dress | Charlotte Russe shoes

Aesthetic: That girl in your math class who owned glitter gel pens in an astonishingly wide array of colors, wrote in big bubble letters, and meticulously organized all of her notes.

Her favorite color was purple, obviously, and she had the type of notebook paper with the reinforced edges. She got annoyed at you because you asked to borrow a sheet from her every single day.

I Tried the Unicorn Frappuccino So You Don’t Have To

Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

Express dress | Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

This is the first time I’ve stepped into a Starbucks inside a Macy’s inside a mall.

I’m thinking of how the setup is like a configuration of Russian dolls, stores in stores in a giant conglomeration of stores, when the guy behind the counter flashes me a jolly smile. “Good afternoon! What’ll it be today?”

“I’ll have a tall Unicorn Frappuccino,” I reply, cringing a little on the inside. Even I’m judging myself. Last night a good friend of mine who worked at Starbucks had gone on a rant about how much she hated the drink, from its super-sugary contents to the fact that blenders had to be washed out after each use to the grown women who threw tantrums upon finding out that ingredients had run out.

Easter 2017

I was going to make a post rounding up all of the Easter-appropriate dresses I’ve showcased on the blog, but I’m pretty sure that I’d just end up with every dress on here.

I’m not religious, by the way — I just really love pastels and floral prints. My love for sweet, girly dresses is no joke; I have this distinct memory of me as an eight-year-old walking through a department store full of sundresses, insisting that my mom buy All Of Them. She didn’t, obviously, but I built up my collection nonetheless and showed up to school every day there on after in a candy-colored frock. (Hey, what’s changed?)

Boating to Dead Tree

Hollister beach vacation

A few friends and I went boating as the grand finale to our spring break staycation.

I’m now incredibly sunburnt (my arms, shoulders, face, and legs all hurt whenever something touches them — ouch!). That’s what I get for forgetting to reapply sunscreen until about eight hours in. Lesson learned.
