"Let the rain fall down and wake my dreams."

It's June which means there should not be any rain for next few months! (Yeah, I'm talking to you Pacific Northwest Mother Nature!)

Nearly everyone I went to high school with graduated [college] this last week. It is bittersweet to see people going all over while I'm still stuck here. If there is really such a thing as past lives, I think I was a California girl. Or Hawaii girl. Or Florida girl. Or anyplace-sunny-and-not-pouring-rain-all-the-time girl. My dad is pretty sick so I don't really forsee myself leaving here anytime soon; but I certainly hope I am not destined to be stuck here for the rest of my life.

Here is me trying to outsmart Mother Nature by getting pictures during a brief break in the rain.

While Gap is not one of my top favorite brands anymore (at least until they figure out their focus a little better), I still find great stuff from them time to time! I was going for a monochromatic green day and conveniently ended up dressing in Gap pretty much head to toe. Guess it was a Gap day!




Gap sweater. Gap trench jacket. Gap jeans. Gap City Flats. Cara Couture earrings. American Eagle necklace.



Feather extensions have been all the rage for awhile, and while I don't know how much longer they are going to be "in," I absolutely love the ones I just got put in recently. I like that mine are really thin and despite the somewhat brazen colors I have (aqua and magenta on one side; aqua, green, and purple on the other side), they are striped with black so they normally blend in with my hair easily.





I heard having tinsel extensions is supposed to be the hair fad for the summer, but I hope not; I think it would probably look tacky. :o( Would you wear tinsel in your hair? Feathers are probably as crazy as I will get with my hair!

I've been gone for a little while, what is new with anyone? Any new fads/trends you've picked up? Let me know!

I am also doing a better job updating my Facebook and Twitter! Friend/follow me! :o)

Love your feathers and your green coat! Tinsel has been big here in Colorado for blondes bc the yellow tinsel blends in. I don't know if I would ever get tinsel. It does look a little funky.

The feather extensions are gorgeous. I love that they aren't so noticeable that it is all you can see. They blend in well. I have some clip-in feather hair extensions that I have yet to try. I need more time!

The feather extensions look so cool! I think they're way more natural-looking than tinsel - tinsel's just too shiny! And that Gap trench is such a great color :)
