Hey there cutie pies,
Haps Tuesday to you! I hope you all recovering well from a much needed three-day weekend, and had a happy Memorial Day! Big thank you to those who fight for our freedom everyday. I spent my day packing for my trip ahead and preparing to take this newfound summer heat to the next level tomorrow in Scottsdale! I’ve been running outdoors in giant trash bags for weeks to get me ready for the 103 degree weather I am about to encounter (just kidding, I’ve been eating popsicles instead). But really someone please wish me luck, and send slurpees.
Anywayyyyy I was called out by my dear family for still kinda sucking when it comes to the posting, so I pinky promise you will get your full 3 posts this week (whether you like it or not… Hanna) You know with the first day of the blogging week comes a fashion post, so here we are, fashion posting.

If I am being honest, and although my father will disagree with this based on the amount of my packages he begrudgingly carries inside each week, my shopping has come to a little bit of a slowdown the past couple of weeks. When you’re ballin’ on a college budget, you have to be picky, so the pieces I have ordered lately are things I have been eyeing for awhile, finally came back in stock, or is just something I can’t seem to live without.
But what is a blogger to do without enough clothes to wear a different outfit each day with no repeats and still feel sassy? Cry, that’s what she does. Just kidding, I am only a little dramatic. But really, when my closet is looking a little bare (to me at least) and possibly needs a little trendy or colorful pick-me-up, I do what any rational person would do and head to Forever 21. It is the perfect place to find ‘fast fashion’ in the sense that I can wear it once and not feel bad about never wearing it again. So as some of you have requested, here is my affordable find blogpost.
Now I am not saying it is a free for all once you get to Forever 21.. this store requires strategy, grit, and stamina (or maybe that’s ping pong, who knows) But really, do not go into Forever 21 “just browsing” or else you will leave 4 hours later after trying on nothing that goes together with only a cami in hand. My tips for Forever 21 include: get your personal style in your head before you go in (don’t waste your time on the pleather skirts if your a cotton candy kinda lady), make a list of what you need (my last haul included floral, jumpers, and a couple crop tops if I was feelin ’em), decide how much you want to spend (I know everything is like $14, but that starts to add up when you like 56 things), and don’t be discouraged by sizing (some of their mediums are tighter than a 1980’s leotard on me, while a small won’t even stay on in others).
So to help you through this journey we call life I have also included some of my fave Forever 21 picks so you can shop away and not break the bank. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and can save some moolah during the process. You are all pretty princesses at heart. K bye.
