Summer News

Sorry I've been so MIA. I've been pretty busy lately with my internship. I helped out with programs for 5th graders, 2nd graders, and 1st graders and I'm also transcribing old Civil War letters. The typing can get tedious at times, but I'm learning a lot from reading these primary resources. I'd like to give an update about my novel. I currently have 13 pages.

I want to start writing some quick updating posts like this:

I am...

Reading... My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares

Watching .... Desperate Housewives Season 4

Feeling... Sunburnt and sore from canoeing yesterday (but it was fun)

Thinking ... I should work on my practice LSAT book

Wondering ... How the rest of my summer will go

Planning ... On cleaning my closet, selling some textbooks online, and buying a pair of black pants

White Clothing Finds

There's nothing as dreamy as beautiful white clothing in the summer. There's something angelic and ethereal about wearing something white. In terms of accessorizing, however, I think the best bet is either metallics or bold colors. Without some color white can make people look washed out. Here are my picks for beautiful white clothing and the accessories I think would go well with these pieces. 

A refreshing white eyelet dress by Marc Jacobs. $268 on Piperlime
Here's a colorful bangle that would definitely add some spunk to the Marc Jacobs dress.  I usually don't wear bangles, but this one is so adorable! I love the color combo. $98 at Kate Spade

This dress has cute edges on the hem and sleeves, which spices up the traditional style of white dress. 
$89 at Amazon: GUESS Katie Dress

Gold Metal Tiny Anchor Dangle Charm Earring
Wouldn't it go beautifully with these Anchor earrings? They're only $8 on Amazon. Just click the image if you want to purchase them.

Happiness Project Update

So far I have written 8 pages of a novel that I am trying to write. I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but I think part of it has to do with the fact that I am a huge perfectionist. I tend to write very slowly, reworking sentences until I get things just the way I want them.

Also, following more of Gretchen's advice, I made a purchase that made me very happy. I bought the Free People Polka Dotted dress I told you about! I wore it to the beach over a black Salinas monokini, and it absolutely made a great day a brilliant one! I will post pictures of me in the dress as soon as I find my camera charger. (Which hopefully will be soon!)
