Pink Stripes & Converse

We had a pretty busy weekend around these parts – between shopping,
running errands, renting movies from Redbox, and working away on my
vintage vanity table, there wasn’t a whole lot of time to get dressed

I recently picked up this shirt from Kohl’s – I loved it so much when I tried it on that I even picked it up in white and in a splatter pattern with light and dark blue.

Since the weather is finally starting to get nice, I am officially boycotting my fall and winter boots. Therefore, I have to get creative with what shoes I wear with my skinny jeans until it is warm enough to wear flats and sandals. I’ve never been one to pair my Converse sneakers with skinny jeans – let’s face it, I just don’t think I’m cool enough to pull it off – but instead of sporting a complete tomboy-esque look, I added a floral statement necklace to add some femininity back into the outfit and balance out the sportiness.

sunnies | Coach

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
