Side Walk When She Walks

Hi guys! So something crazy happened here in NJ, we got another heat wave! It seriously has been pants, tights, possible cardigan weather (Not all together of course (;), but just the other day I opened the door to let my dog out and it was HOT. It's kind of sad, since I was getting so excited for Fall and it's like Summer came back and hit me in the face. Oh well, Fall and I will be united soon enough I supposed.

Oh! and as you may have noticed! (If you haven't visited since last post!) I have a new layout. I was going for a classy French carnival type of ordeal. I'm in love!



Dress- Fossil ; Belt- Charlotte Russe ; Shoes- Kohls





So I have a funny story (not really funny but!) about this dress! I bought it a couple of years ago, but before that I saw it and loved it. Except it was pricey. Like $60-$70 I didn't have in high school pricey. For my birthday that year I got a giftcard from my good friend Lauren for $20 to Fossil. And even though I really appreciated it, I mean $20 to Fossil? I can't even buy a ring for that without spending extra money. So I just held onto the giftcard and one time when I was at the mall this dress was on sale, for you guessed it- $20! In my size! I think we were meant to be!







I'm actually really excited for next week! Last minute Brian and I (and his mom!) decided to go down to LBI! He's gone down to his Nana's house down there since he was really little and knows all the nifty little food places, shops, and all that stuff! I can not wait to lie on the beach and go in the ocean with Brian! It makes me feel a little more okay with it still being summer!
























I also wanted to say hi to all my new followers! Though I haven't been posting as frequently I seem to have had a large sum follow me in the past few days. Thank you guys so much

Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Thats such a pretty dress, well done for having the will power to wait for it! It's been miserable and raining here in England although we got a little bit of sun at the start of the week, I'm settling in to cooler weather though and I can't wait for chunky knits and layers. Saying that, I am a tad envious you still get to wear pretty sun dresses and go to the beach.

  10. Like I said in my comment for your last post, I LOVE THIS LAYOUT. I definitely see a French Carnival theme going on here. Did you make it yourself or is it from a template? Anyway, these pictures are gorgeous, as your pictures always are. I hope you post again before LBI but if not have an awesome time and take pictures to share the trip with all of us!!

  15. I love your new layout, it so matches your clothing style :) For example the dress: lovely! The little ornaments on the skirt part are so pretty! But you know what? I was so preparing for fall aswell and was glad summer had gone and today: Bam! Heat! It's the same over here in Germany.

    Have a nice weekend :)

  16. I love your new layout!! It's totally darling, and I feel the circus-y vibe.

    Your dress is so so pretty! It fits you super well, and the pattern is so much fun. I'm also fairly in love with you shoes. On another note, have fun in LBI! That should help make the heat a bit more bearable. I couldn't believe how warm it got in Jersey. Hopefully fall is just around the corner (again!).

  17. Hi there! I'm a new follower! :) I love your blog so much, you're so pretty! I feel like we have similar tastes and it's so nice to find someone you can relate to looks-wise. And who doesn't love a dominant-recessive girl? (light eyes & dark hair rule!)

  27. Well you know, there's this little thing called Bittorrent, which will allow you to download episodes of True Blood whenever you want! I suggest it. Internet piracy is the tits.
