Just own the night like the 4th of July

For the 4th of July me and the bestie drove up to Indianapolis to watch the fireworks as we always do. Once there we parked and walked around a bit. We ended up downtown in monument  circle and just sat around people watching and taking photos every once in a while. There were 2 motorcycle cops parked just feet away from us and we watched as they let kids and a few adults too take pictures with them and on their bikes. We were approached by a couple guys while sitting there which was totally random.

I just love the city, there is just such a mix of different and interesting people in cities, nothing like small towns at all. Plus there are always things to do in bigger cities, always something going on. I honestly don't know why I still live where I do, I think I'd love livin the city life if even just for a while.

So when it got closer to time for the fireworks we walked back to the parking garage and packed our cooler full of goodies and a blanket up to the top of the garage to watch the show. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous that evening and I got some really great shots of the evening sky. Rain had been in the forecast for most of the day and it didn't rain even once while we were there so I was quite thankful for that.

The firework show was pretty great and during them someone who was blaring music from their truck played "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" and the moment was too perfect with the fireworks going off and Steven's voice and I got all teary eyed like a big sentimental weirdo. All in all we had a fun little trip up to Indy. I wore my brand new maxi dress that I had bought from China through ebay, with it I wore my yellow sandals and lots of colorful bracelets. Here are some photos of my outfit and from the day.

She’s an American Girl

This white Summery dress I bought online from Forever 21. I just love this dress so much because it's so girly and simple. The bodice is cut into a delicate eyelet design and is adorned with tiny buttons down the center. I love how the bodice is form fitting but it flows out at the waist.  Super comfy and lightweight for hot summer days. I paired the dress with my nude strappy heels and a simple bird necklace. Some additional photos:

Where there is a flame, someone's bound to get burned...

So, I haven't done a new look for this blog in quite some time, months actually. I've bought a lot of new dresses in the past month or so...and new shoes as well so hopefully I'll get back to posting outfits more regularly. Since my last post Spring semester at school has ended, I got a new tattoo on my foot, and I've made Summer plans to go see Aerosmith both in NYC in July and Milwaukee in August.
I'm sure I'll share the details of all that as the time gets closer and I'll also share some photos of my new foot tattoo as well. But first I'll get back to today's outfit.

I bought this lovely floral strapless dress I'm wearing at Rue 21 last week. The moment I saw it I knew it was SO ME and I fell in love and had to buy it. I'm known for wearing a lot of strapless shirts and dresses alike because my shoulders are actually one thing I like about myself and try to show off some. I tend to love pink and pretty florals so this dress was pretty much perfect for me. In my hair are pink & white hair clip in strands that I just bought from Urban Outfitters. (see photo)
I' m also wearing a pink rose ring and my ever present bird necklace from Forever 21. The final element of this simple summer look is my amazing new 5.5 inch tall tan wedges from Oh how I love those shoes!!! Here are some additional photos:

Well I hope you like my look & thanks for visiting my blog!

I'm just making up for what I never had

Yesterday I stopped at TJ Maxx for the sole purpose of buying a new purse. My black purse with gold studs by Betsey Johnson was starting to fall apart because the lining has been busted for months now. So I decided it was past time to buy a new bag. 

I found this adorable black bag also a Betsey Johnson and knew this was to be my new purse. But as standard with me I ended up buying more than what I had went for. I found this adorable mint green and white striped sheer blouse and then I spotted a mint green wallet that matched the shirt perfectly and I kind of had to have them. I paired the shirt with high waisted dark denim shorts, striped tights and pink sparkle stilettos. It was definitely too cold outside for such an outfit, but I look forward to wearing it when the weather warms up!

Wearing some silver chains and pearls

The new Betsey Johnson bag. It has a stitched heart pattern covering the entire bag and is adorned with a bit of gold. The mint green wallet is a snake skin pattern and by Jessica Simpson.

Livin' on the edge, you can't help yourself from fallin'

So this is my new fave Aerosmith shirt of the moment. I saw a photo someplace online of a black men's t-shirt with this exact wording and just LOVED it. These are the last names of the members of Aerosmith in case you had no clue what was happening. So I went to and stole the wording and designed this shirt. Unlike the shirt I originally saw, I added Aerosmith to the back of the shirt. Once it came in the mail I decided to do a little simple DIY work and cut the collar to make it a little more feminine and I cut the waist length shorter and knotted the shirt in the back for a better fit. 
I paired the shirt with the snow leopard mini I made, my faux leather leggings and yet again my red suede wedges. Oh and how can I forget to mention my inexpensive bird necklace from Forever 21... I wore it the 2nd time I met Steven Tyler & Joe Perry so it seemed like a fitting addition to the outfit. Here's a few more photos:

Nothing lasts forever & we both know hearts can change

Rockin' my new burgundy Guns N Roses shirt. November Rain is one of my fave rock songs and I also like Live & Let Die, Patience, Don't Cry, Sweet Child of Mine & of course Paradise City.

I Found this shirt on eBay & just loved it. Most GNR shirts with the standard logo are black, so this burgundy color that matches the roses in the logo is perfect. I cut off the shoulders as I tend to usually do with t-shirts and paired it with black skinnies, studded belt, boots and an over-sized wooden cross necklace. Additional photos:

Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming...

I'm wearing my new Grey Wolf Warrior hood by SpiritHoods. This exact hood Steven Tyler wore this past November 2012 to the free concert Aerosmith gave in Boston in front of their first apartment together at 1325 Commonwealth Ave. I thought it was adorable on him when I saw it, then decided I wanted one just like it.

Let me tell ya how hard it was to find this stinking hood, near impossible. The Grey Wolf Warrior hood came out in Fall of 2011 and is no longer sold on the Spirithoods website and all other retail sites online have sold out of them as well. I bought one from China that had the correct picture then it came in the mail and was a knock-off version. Finally I found this one on eBay from a seller in China and bought it immediately. We all know how much I adore Steven Tyler's clothing/style so owning something identical to his is like the best.

I paired the hood with my white Steven Tyler Long Live Rock & Roll DIY tank, black studded leather jacket, black skinny jeans, studded boots & over-sized sunglasses. Some more pics of this cute hat.
