I was looking through old photos/video covers and loved the way short-style tights used to be worn. Inspired, I paired a skater dress with an alamo bodysuit, sneakers, and a bright blazer for a day out with family.
I like the way the bodysuit gives a little show at the hem of the dress and adds interest + modesty. 
Buns have been my go-to style this summer because they are so easy to do and maintain. 
Oh, btw Happy 4th!
The 4th of July has to be one of my favorite holidays because fireworks are both stunning and romantic. If you are in the states, I hope that you are enjoying the celebration of independence.

My Independence: 
The freedom of expression & freedom to try once more.

Alamo Orange Bodysuit- Affordable Treasures
Floral Cut-Out Dress- Forever 21
Leather Coach Bag & Aqua Blazer- Woodland Thrift
Active Socks- Active
Canvas Sneakers- Vans

Hair- Washed, conditioned and set with Eco-Styler gel.
Face- Tried out the NYC Sun'n'bronze powder in Coney Island Glow and surprisingly it actually worked and gave a subtle, natural glow. Keeper!
