Summer Celebrations!

I have a feeling that this summer is going to be a busy one, its already off to a crazy start! I seriously don't know where the past few weeks have gone, they have flown by so fast! I celebrated my 23rd birthday last wednesday, and wanted to share my favorite pictures from the day!

Getting good shots of these balloons was much harder to do than it looks! Huge thanks to my sister for working with me to get some fun shots! (I bought the balloons at Party City.)

I had some friends over that evening for a cocktail/ dessert party! Here are my decorations...

Thank you to everyone for your kind birthday messages, your phone calls, texts & gifts… it made my day so special! 

This is what I wore for the 4th of July!

Pants: Nordstorm Rack // Top: Pitaya in Ann Arbor // Shoes: Forever 21

I hope you have all been enjoying your summer's so far! I found this awesome list from my favorite blog, The Glitter Guide. Here is their summer to-do list! 

Much Love!

My Art

Several months ago I started painting. I have learned to love it & really use it as a creative outlet. I have started to list my canvas paintings on etsy, and I would love if you checked them out! Each one is unique, and I use gold leaf on them to add some extra texture. If you have any questions about my art, or if you would like to have one custom made with colors that you choose… please email me at chelseaj239@yahoo.com. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I love creating it!

How To Wear: The Asymmetrical Skort

Well, a whole MONTH later, I am finally posting again! I had a crazy month filled with weddings, traveling, graduation parties, family visiting… it's been a busy month! I am excited to let things slow down and get back into the swing of things again. I wanted to share some pictures from the end of May. I bought an asymmetrical skirt/short "skort" at a boutique in downtown Ann Arbor several weeks ago, and I had a harder time knowing how to style this hot trend. I looked up a lot of pictures on Pinterest & came up with these looks that I liked, and then made my own look! (pictures below)

{P.S. You can find these skort's almost anywhere now; Target, Zara, Forever 21 etc.}

And here is my outfit...

Skort: Pitaya in Ann Arbor MI // Shoes: Target // Shirt: Forever 21
Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Spring Sweet Boutique in Holland MI 
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta //  Purse: Forever 21 // Necklace: Urban Outfitters 

I hope you enjoyed this post and that you are inspired to try out this fun summer trend!

Much Love,

Friday Favorites // What's In My Bag?

Happy Friday! I hope you are all having a great start to your weekends! Today's post is really simple, but I wanted to share my everyday essentials that I carry with me in my purse.
 Here is my list of favorites! 

Tory Burch real leather wallet
I love this wallet. I am really picky about my wallet size and color and shape, I like this style and it has a lot of room for cards! 

C√ČLINE celine glasses
Sunnies, obviously a must have for summer!

Yves saint laurent Lip Gloss
This is my favorite lip gloss, it stays on forever and smells so amazing!

Dolce Gabbana perfume
I love rollerball perfume bottles, they are great for keeping in your bag for those days when you need to freshen up.

Topshop lip treatment
I love these lip balms, I usually have at lease 5 lip balms in my bag at a time… I'm slightly addicted. :)

Bath and Body Anti bacterial pack 
This is necessary for those times when you need to wash your hands but aren't around a bathroom. 

Essie nail polish 
I usually have a bottle of nail polish in my purse for when my nails chip or when I have some time to kill and I can paint on a fresh coat. 

Kate Spade Small Notepad
I always carry a note pad with me to jot down notes etc. I'm a huge list maker! 

I keep a pen in my purse as well for notes and lists.

Camelbak Eddy 25-oz. Water Bottle
I need my water bottle at all times to remind me to drink more water! I love Camelbak water bottles! 

Keys- obviously.

Iphone, again… this goes without explanation. 

Black 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target 
My current purse is a 3.1 phillip lim bag from his amazing Target collaboration last fall. I love this bag!

Gum, a must have.

Not much of this in my purse, haha. I use my debit card much more often than cash.

I hope you all pick up some of these items- it sure makes my life easier when I'm out and about!
Much Love,
