"I Dye."

I can't believe this is my last week of school. My junior year of college has absolutely flown by, it's truly bittersweet. So excited about the adventures up ahead, but cant believe I only have one year left!

I just downloaded photoshop, so bear with me while I learn the basics! This black & white batik mini I picked up a couple months ago is the perfect summer staple! Im also obsessed with these new elastic gladiators from Aldo. They will be in heavy rotation the next few months!

I can thank my summery tan to Bella Bronze self-tanning lotion from Beauty Fix. I'm usually a bit intimidated by faux glows, but I've had streak-free success and haven't had to waste precious study time (or risk skin cancer) laying out in the sun!

xoxo, lauren
P.S. Don't forget to enter the "Runaway" Giveaway to win Meg Cabot's new book, available in stores today!

P.P.S.  I was interviewed for a wonderful article, "Clothes and the College Girl", at Student Stuff yesterday (thank you for the feature, Lauren)! I'm feeling very thankful for all the wonderful opportunities I've been given lately.
Pin It!

I love your blog, and I love your outfit shots (you have such a good sense of style!!) but the one thing I don't like is the backgrounds on the pictures ... it makes it really hard to look at the pictures or the text, and it's really distracting. I think you would draw a lot more attention to the outfit if you made the backgrounds a little less noticeable :)

thanks for your feedback! i'd really rather have a real background, but I have no decent backdrops to take pictures at my apartment. hopefully this summer when I have a change of scenery I can improve :)

umm I DIE lit-er-ally for that skirt ;)
I love that tie dye is so popular right now!
it's so great to find pieces (other than your typical oversized t-shirt) that are glammed out in amazing dyes!

Loving this outfit! Those shoes are too perfect and the skirt is adorable!
I'd say it's bittersweet seeing my senior year of high school coming to an end, but I'd be lying! I'm so ready to go to college!
