When we were in Hawaii we went to Pearl Harbor and toured the USS Bowfin, the USS Missouri, and visited the memorial at the USS Arizona. Here are some pictures I took inside the submarine:
And here’s a picture of me wearing a romper/playsuit casually leaning against a giant anchor making a totally normal face:
I wore a sequined miniskirt to drink a very large soy latte because cocktail wear should not be limited to cocktail hour. Also, daytime sequins are seriously happening.
The jean jacket is my favorite one from Old Navy a thousand years ago, and the sheer white shirt and sequin skirt are both from Express. I see all of these pieces as neutrals, so I threw on some teal eyeliner just under my bottom lashes to add a pop of color. Also, putting eyeliner only on the bottom of your eyes kind of makes you look like a badass. Try it.
These ice cream cones were at the coffee shop and they are pretty.
Alex was there too. She’s also pretty.
These are her loafers. Love.
This weekened my parents and I went to Cottonwood Arts Festival. There were dogs decked out in Derby hats:
I wore a turtleneck denim halter that I made out of jeans. I know it sounds crazy. This book told me to make it.
Step 1: Divide hair in to two sections and braid.
Step 2: Use copious amounts of bobby pins to secure said braids to the back of your head.
Step 3: Stand overlooking the beach with the sea breeze tousling your hair and wait to be photographed.
Last night I was craving cupcakes but I didn’t feel like making them from scratch. Luckily we live in a magical time when even vegans can be lazy and make baked goods right out of a box!
I picked up some mixes at Whole Foods by Cherrybrook Kitchen and they were delicious. The chocolate cake mix even had chocolate chips in it. Well played, Cherrybrook.
I like to roll my freshly-frosted cupcakes in toppings to make them look fancier and add a little texture. I used coconut and sprinkles. You could use almost anything to dress up cupcakes. Try crushed up cookies, ground nuts, or chocolate shavings.
This swimsuit makes me feel like an extra in Beach Blanket Bingo, which I love. It’s the one where the Beach Party gang goes sky diving! Buster Keaton is in it! (Don’t tell anyone, but I think his physical comedy is more masterful than Charlie Chaplin’s. Shocking, I know.) If this clip doesn’t entice you to check it out, you probably hate fun:
