This shirt has to be one of my best thrifting finds. It's 100% silk and I paid $1 for it. At the time I wasn't sure if I liked/wanted it but it was such a good deal that I bought it. So glad I did, it's so easy to just throw on and it's actually perfect for Summer, even though it has sleeves. I wore it on vacation in North Carolina 2 years ago and it was in the upper 90s (36C+)

I was a little risque with this look and left 3 buttons undone, although you can't really tell in the photos (except one.) Ever since Alexander Wang did the playsuits with opened up button downs I've wanted to try it out. This was a great way to ease into it. One day maybe I'll brave the full look.

As you'll notice, my face and nails are completely bare. I've been giving my nails a break since getting back from vacation at the end of April, it's still odd for me to see my nails without polish. But they won't be bare for much longer, have to paint them for my next vacation! My bare face is due to pure laziness on a Sunday.

I was really enjoying the weather at the beginning of this month. It was warm enough to bare my legs, but not so warm that I couldn't cover up my arms. It was the perfect time to wear this thin long sleeve dress sans tight and jacket. Such a simple outfit, but one that I really like.

I am constantly window shopping and looking for pieces I would love to add to my closet. Lyst is a great way for me to organize those finds and keep an eye out for sales. From Isabel Marant to Saint Laurent, Lyst partners with over 12,000 brands so you're sure to find all your favorite designers and discover some new ones.

The more you use it, the better it understands what you like and what you don't so you never see brands you don't like and find more you will love. You can also follow people to see what they are adding to their Lysts, and they can follow you.

One of my favorite things about the site is when anything you've lysted goes on sale or comes back in stock anywhere you can be notified! That means you're made aware of sales of your favorite items even if it goes on sale at a store you've never heard of! Score!

In addition to an ever-green lyst of products that are new for you from all of the brands you love, there's also a dedicated editorial site - The LongLyst - that includes interviews with the fashion elite and those in the know as well as exploring the history of the world's most popular garments and an exploration of trends.

I've created my dream Wish Lyst for what I would love to add to my closet this Spring/Summer. I'm constantly adding more pieces, there's just so much to go through. I could look for days, weeks really...ha ha. Not good for a shopaholic, but I was never very good at resisting window shopping. View the full lyst here, and a teaser below. Apparently I'm very into prints and crop tops this year.

This is my version of dressing down, the closest I'll get to wearing sweatpants. These awesome new Puma's are so me. Any time you make something purple I will automatically want it. For their first outing I styled them pretty basic: jeans + hoodie; a throwback to my younger years. Hopefully I'll be brave enough to try them with a skirt or something to dress them up a bit, but I'm not sure I can pull that off.

As a fun side-story: I have only worn sweatpants out in public once, not counting going to and from gymnastics practice, and that was due to extreme circumstances. I was in college, it was midnight, very snowy and my roommate asked me if I wanted her to take me to the 24 hour Walmart to buy Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on DVD. She had promised to take me the day it came out and figured there was no time like midnight, ha ha! So off I went in the snow in my sweatpants and Emu's.
