Whenever I wear this dress I always think of Michael Jackson's Wanna Be Startin' Something where he sings, "You're a vegetable, you're a vegetableee" Silly, I know but I just get such a kick out of this dress.
I first saw this dress on ModCloth ages ago but to my dismay they discontinued the style. Over the summer ModCloth brought it back for $120, wayyyyy over my dress budget. As fate would have it, I ended up finding the dress on eBay for half of Modcloth's price. Still expensive, but an eBay seller accepted my final offer and this dress was finally happily in my closet.
I love everything about this dress. The vegetables are so colorful and it just makes me so happy. Who doesn't love vegetables?! Its definitely a spring/summer dress, but can work into fall with a leather jacket. It could definitely work with tights/ankle boots too. I try not to get too busy with the dress since it clearly speaks for itself, but could get crazy with fun feather earrings to go along with it.
Mallory and I basically recreated the beginning of Cabin in the Woods searching for this art installation by Eboni Patterson for Open Spaces (A KC arts experience).
This blue swimming pool is filled with flowers, candles, and teddy bears. Its truly a sight to be seen. Open Spaces ends on October 28 so make sure you make it out to Swope Park.

Back to outfit details, I bought these SJP Doris D'orsay pumps for my birthday and they are so cute! This is the first time I've broken them out on the blog despite getting them in April.
I have been on the hunt for a new purse with a rather vintage/modern style. I found this clutch from the Balmain x H&M collection which I completely missed back in 2015 because I fell asleep... I love the red suede and gold handle. This purse goes with everything. I have been really craving a new luxury bag and this purse is enough to subside my purse lust.
I feel like it has been a bit since I've posted an outfit on the blog. Good news! I've been shooting a lot of content these past couple of weeks and I'm so excited to share it with you!

Aside from the blog life, work and grad school keep me busy, but I am managing it much better than I did in the summer. I finished international business and am now taking a stats class. I am learning how to balance my work, school, and personal life a lot better these days finding time to catch a movie, see my friends, and volunteer. I'm grateful to learn how to manage my schedule earlier in life although at times in can be frustrating.

I feel like I keep blinking and the months are changing I can't believe November will be here in just a mere week and gingerbread lattes soon! I have held October dearly in my heart friends. I hope you have too.

In August I got a mysterious shipping notification from UPS that a package was headed to me. Beknownst to me on my doorstep was the whole Born to Run collection sent to courtesy of Urban Decay. Of course I was in tears. I am so excited to share my thoughts on  all these products to try from a brand I have admired for a very long time! It feels like it has been ages since I've done a beauty review like this. Grab some cider or an iced coffee and take a seat!

Hi friends, I can't believe its OCTOBER. I have gone back and forth on writing this review for what seems like so long now. I started writing Sephora Play reviews three years ago when I got my first box. I remember it like Christmas morning but in September. Back then there weren't huge websites dedicated to reviewing just subscription boxes and IG story unboxings were non-existent. Now three years later I am somewhat lost as what to do/where to go with these boxes in my content. Reviewing Sephora Play boxes was one of the huge chunks of my beauty content. Now I am working with more brands and making more original content, but those posts come in waves. Truthfully it has never been easy to keep up with boxes month to month and take pictures of all the products.
