hey June

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

June

Every bride’s dream wedding date, the start of summer (and freedom), and strawberry picking season.

June also brings along it’s own flowers. For me (and lots of other girls), it carries with it a different type of blossom, the kind that flounces around your knees and gives you the perfect excuse not to wear pants.

I give you the sundress, my uniform whenever oversized t-shirts and cutoff shorts are not appropriate.

 This one happens to be one of my very favorites. Who knew that a spontaneous shopping trip to Forever 21 and nine dollars could result in this darling dress?

I also like this necklace. Alot.

Let’s just say I’ve worn it enough to make all of the beads fall off.

Obviously I fixed this little crisis.

Because the world isn’t made of smiles and rainbows, deals like that don’t last long. See similar (and equally cute) dresses here and here.

Wishing that May bring you lots of leftover flowers.

(and of course plenty of sundresses)

Love,

recruit(meant)

This week is THE week.

And by THE week, I mean sorority recruitment at CNU.

Just like every other girl that is going through the process, I am having a blast. But also like every other girl, I am stressing about it a little too much.

What does it all really mean?

For a little advice from one of the sweetest sorority girls around, I asked Rachel Timmerman from A Preppy State of Mind for some tips about finding the right place. She was sweet enough to give me some very encouraging advice that is meant to be shared!

“I know this sounds cliché, but being yourself when talking with the members of the sororities is SO important.  It is truly the very best way to find your fit.  Try not to be nervous, and remember to keep your options opened, because every sorority is different at every university.  I also think it’s a good idea to think up a list of important things you’re looking for in an organization ahead of time.  So, when you go through recruitment, ask yourself these questions and remember that they’re important qualities you are looking for.  I think that is how you can best find your fit.”

-Rachel

Could she be any more right?

Throughout this week, I have realized just how important it is to be true to yourself and your values in all that you do. This will surely lead you to the place God wants you to be!

On a lighter note, I am super excited to wear this darling necklace and dress from Our World Boutique tonight
