Lace Always Makes Me Feel Girly...

    My busy and active summer officially starts tomorrow with the beginning of tennis and cross country practices. While I do love tennis, I hate how it forces me to wake up so early (7:30 in comparison to 9:30). This means no more staying up till 1 am watching asian dramas haha. If any of you watch these dramas, you probably know how entertaining and addicting they can be. Most of the time, I have enough self control to stop after an episode or two, but it is pretty hard when I'm so engulfed into it! haha.
  I recently picked up a new dress that I was thinking to wear to a formal event of some sort. At first, I disliked the dress, but after wearing it and taking pictures in it, I seem to like it now!

The fabric to the dress is a purplish gray color and is super soft. While I like the softness, I hate how easily it wrinkles. The dress came to me wrinkled which I did not like, but I'm sure that can be quickly fixed with an iron. I'm trying to be sanguine about the dress because I really do love it.. it's just I can't stand when clothes are wrinkly because that means I have more work to do till I can wear it.

The part of the dress that I love is the lace that is underneath. Wearing lace always make me feel so girly and the way the lace is incorporated into this dress is really cool. A triangle of lace is shown up top and the bottom of the dress also reveals some lace. The bottom of the dress is also asymmetrical which makes the dress super unique!

Bangles and Ring

Along with this dress, I chose to wear a set of bangles and a ring. I also decided to pull out some heels to accompany the dress. I don't wear heels that often since I can barely walk in them, but these are actually quite comfortable. I got these from a friend who brought them only to find that they were too big for her. (she has tiny feet seeing how these are a size 6!) These heels fit me like a glove with a tiny bit of wiggle room in the back! They don't cause me too much pain and when I pair them with my Dr scholls insert from my voxbox, they feel just like flats!!

For these photos today, I decided to try and take some on our porch. We keep the porch locked and taped (yes, taped) shut through the winter so it's exciting when my mom finally opens it for us. The porch is really nice place to read or just relax since you get to be outside without the blazing sun burning your skin!

  22. Doctor Scholl's has saved my feet at least 3 times. My favorite are the ball of foot inserts---pop one of those babies in, and it's like walking in sneakers.
