Outfit: Office Florals

Florals are an easy print for the weekend, but I love wearing it to the office as well! Large or small flowery prints on a dark background, like black or navy, is perfect for work. Matching the colors in the floral print to my shirt (or skirt or pants or shoes) makes me feel put-together and professional. I even matched my lipstick! #adulting 

My bestie's wedding is THIS WEEKEND!!! I drove down to D.C. two weeks ago for Jacquie's bachelorette party and now I'm driving down again this Friday for the rehearsal dinner and of course the big day! We've been friends for twenty years, so I'm crazy excited for her! Love ya, Jax!

Books For Food Lovers

Food is an essential part of our lives and sometimes it's an essential part of a character's life, too. I don't know about you, but I love reading about food, especially when it's written really, really well and makes me wish I could eat the food being described right that instant. There are tarts in Heartless, fragrant foreign delicacies in The Forbidden Wish, and of course butterbeer in Harry Potter.
The Adventures of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Kell
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Cinnamon and Gunpowder by Eli Brown
Love Charms and other Catastrophes by Kimberly Karalius
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

Which of these have you read?

Inspired By: Wonder Woman

I literally CANNOT wait until Wonder Woman! While D.C. tends to disappoint wth their movies (sorry, I'm more a Marvel girl), I am so pumped for this movie! I really, really hope it does well in the box office so that we get more female-centric superhero movies and I hope that one of those is Kamala Kahn AKA Kamala Kahn. She's one of my favorites!

Wonder Woman opens in the U.S. on June 2nd, but I just had to share some outfits now because I was too excited to wait!

Diana Prince AKA Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman
Amazon princess Diana (Gal Gadot) is a strong and intelligent immortal warrior who finds Steve Trevor washed ashore the island of Themyscira. She travels to World War I London in order to help stop the war and fight evil.  

For a subtle, updated version of Wonder Woman's classic outfit wear a green jacket, a red tank, embroidered black jeans, a brown bag, and metallic sneakers. Or for a decidedly Amazonian outfit put on a red, yellow, and blue jacket, metallic tank, ombre blue skirt, and gladiator sandals.

Steve Trevor
Steve Trevor
Steve (Chris Pine) is a captain in the U.S. Army Air Service who is rogue-ish and cynical but who is also charming. He enlists the help of Diana to stop World War I and finds that there's a lot more to her than meets the eye. 

For a feminine take on his uniform, put on a green patched jacket, gray asymmetrical shirt, jeans, a newsboy cap, and navy lace-up boots. Or throw it back to 1917 with a gray jacket, a chambray shirt, map watch, green trousers, and gray sneakers.

Etta Candy
Etta Candy
Etta (Lucy Davis) is Steve's loyal, friendly, and comical secretary who immediately befriends Diana while she travels to London. 

If black is your color throw on a black blazer, dress, wide brim hat, and lace-up boots with rose earrings, and a brown watch. Or wear a floral print dress, navy jacket, orange bag, and off white ankle-strap flats.

Are you looking forward to Wonder Woman?

Outfit: Just & Loyal

Is it weird that this outfit feels VERY Hufflepuff-like? It's obviously got the yellow and black, but something about the added foresty green jacket and the loose top gives it that "just and loyal" feel. I mean, the Hufflepuff Common Room is super cozy with squishy chairs and has plants all over. Who wouldn't want to hang out there? 

Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately! This has been the busiest month of my life between my friend's bachelorette party (and wedding in two weeks!), three work events in three weeks, and meeting an amazing guy, so I'm just enjoying life right now and blogging when I have the time and motivation.

Inspired By: New May Books

I am THRILLED about this month's books! The first one I'm currently reading and the other two I'm dying to get. I preorder Lois Lane: Triple Threat and might just have to preorder the others because I need them ASAP! So read what these young adult novels are about and get some cute outfit inspiration from them!

Lois Lane: Triple Threat

And now, her online crush, SmallvilleGuy, is coming to Metropolis. If all goes well, they'll turn their long-distance friendship into a some-kind-of-fairy-tale romance. But when does all ever go well? Before she can check boyfriend off her list, Lois must take down a mad scientist plus a trio of mutant teens, protect the elusive flying man from the feds (including her dad), and navigate her very first date with SmallvilleGuy.
