The Citrus of My Eye

Top: thrifted   Shorts: Pacsun   Sandals: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bag: c/o Jolly Chic


The sun is out, the heat waves are rising, and I could not be happier! To celebrate and wear my happy mood as an outfit, I combined my orange boho top with my good ole yellow shorts. Plus, check out this cute, soft-pink-bag from Jolly Chic! Isn't it adorable? All in all, this look made a for a citrusy combination that put an extra bounce in my step just by wearing.

There's another reason I'm bouncing around too - I am DONE with finals! Which means I'm DONE with my first year of college! I'm so thrilled to be able to say I've been able to keep my grades up as well. I was really worried about my Biology class, because man, Biology might as well be Calculus as far as my brain is concerned. However, I just got the exact grade needed on the final to squeak by with an A in the class.

Now its on to summer and lazing in the sun. In between classes, work, and the occasional get together with friends of course. Last night I went out with the new Senate members and we bonded over bowling! Haha, its been ages since I went bowling, but guess who outscored everyone in the last game? This girl! 131, baby. It was my goal to hit triple digits, and the four strikes I bowled helped me reach it. Haha, it was pretty funny, and I'm sure I amused others with my mini victory dances/leaps after every strike. We're going to try and get together sometime during the summer and have another fun little event.

Anything planned for your summer that you're looking forward to?

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16

Congrats on your first year!!!

SaraM said...

Congratulations on your finals! That's so tough to bring grades up at that crucial test. I usually try and buffer my grade with a bunch of good homework scores, in case I bomb the final ;) I guess your method of actually studying works better! Hahaha! Way to go, girl!
I also love your fearless colors in this outfit! So summery!
Speaking of summer, I'm wayy excited to head up north for a couple months! If you'll be in Utah at all this summer, hit me up!!

Oh man, Linda, you got an awesome bowling score!! Congrats on kicking everyone's butt (and probably looking cute while doing it, muwahaha). Man, I think the best I ever got was 100.

And seriously congrats on getting the grade you needed on your Biology test!! Now you're all ready for summer, just like me! And hopefully they will invent teleporting devices this summer so that we can you know, just pop over into each other's houses whenever we feel like it. Ah, if only...

It feels so strange to see you decked out in an outfit without studs, but I love it nonetheless. Those sleeves look like they're great for waving your arms around in, haha! I especially like the lace on the edges of them. :D <3

Have a super wonderful, super terrific, supercalafragalisticexpealadocious (that is spelled wrong, totally) first day of freeeedddooommm!!

Congrats on your finals! I'm sure it must be a relief.

The color combination on here is sooooo smashing. It seems perfect for spring/ushering in summer/ cold, go away. And the sandals are darling.

It made me giggle how you stood on your toes to get a picture. I always do them when blogging in flats, and J is always like, "what are you doing?" lawlz.

love,
