On Friday I went to my good friend's house and then slept over. It was too fun to even explain. That night we went shopping at Anthropologie which was good because they had a lot of stuff on sale.
Saturday morning was even more exciting, though. We decided it would be fun to check out the thrift store around the corner from her house. I got a three belts and a blazer. Today I decided to put together an outfit for each of the things that I purchased, which proved to be a good way to spend my time.
These belts were each $1. I was so excited to find some cute, cheap belts since I have been obsessed with them lately.
Dress: Abercrombie, Shirt: Brother's, Belt: thrifted
I decided to start with the blue one since it is my favorite. The color is amazing and I really like it against the gold. It will definitely be great to add to otherwise boring outfits.
Shirt: unknown, Belt: thrifted, Skirt: Ralp Lauren dress from when I was little
When we returned from the thrift store we came home to just about the coolest thing I have ever seen. My friend's house is probably my favorite house ever; it is really old and just about everything about it is absolutely gorgeous. Anyways, in her kitchen their was a closet that the previous owners had put in but my friend's mom thought their may be a hidden servant's staircase behind the closet wall that they had covered up and there was! When the wall was demolished there were stairs leading up to a closet upstairs that the other owners had put in as well. Then, when we pulled up the floor and we had practically a whole staircase in front of our eyes, they only have to add a few at the bottom. Well, every kid always dreams of finding a secret passageway in their house. The only thing is I am too old to pass for a kid at this point and it wasn't actually in my house, hahahaa. This may sound really stupid to you but I really did think that it was awesome.
I managed to take a couple of pictures on my cell phone:
A couple hours after I got home from my friend's my two cousins arrived for the visit at my house. We did so much in only two days that it probably seems really overwhelming; but it wasn't it was just super, super fun.
On Saturday night we went back to Anthropologie, this time I didn't get anything though. My cousin got a really cute dress that I wish I could have gotten too but instead we decided to do a clothing swap so I will probably get a chance to wear it anyways. After we went there we went to Marshall's, I only got a pair of leggings but this hat looks kind of cute so it may have been a good idea to check the price. We went to go hibachi after that which was amaazinnggg as usual.
On Sunday we went to the beach and I finally got a good start on my summer tan. After the beach we went to my uncle's house for a bbq. We went in his pool for awhile and then he took us on the boat to go tubing! When we got home we watched the moving Knowing with Nicholas Cage about the numbers that predict all the world disasters. It was reaallyy good up until the end when they pretty much ruined the movie. How disappointing..
On Monday we went to go get bagels wearing this:
We got some stares and one guy said "You guys are looking very theatrical today.. what is the occasion?" Hahhahahaa
Then, we went to pretty much the biggest mall I have ever been too so we could meet my aunt because my cousins were already going home. Atleast we got a lot done. I bought a pair of high-waisted blue shorts from Urban Outfitters for $20 that I couldn't get a picture of yet because they were in the wash. Finally I found the perfect other option of shorts rather than cutoffs. I will probably be wearing them in the next few days so I will post them soon.
Yesterday we went into the city to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in Imax. It was sooo amazing, even though I am a few chapters from finishing the book. As you can probably tell, I didn't have much time for reading this weekend.
Well, thanks for reading if you actually did.

So, this morning when I woke up I felt the sudden urge to go browsing through the back of my mom's closet to see what I might discover. She had already left for a doctor's appointment so I dug in and was SOOO excited with what I found. I found mainly jackets, coats, and blazers because that was the side of the closet that they were on but I also reached down to the floor and was surprised to discover this humongous gold gown that I know could have never possibly fit my mom. Believe me, it is huge!The pieces below are only a few of the many I found, but don't worry I am planning on posting the rest either tonight or tomorrow. I can't wait for the fall and winter when I can finally wear some of these coats, but until then I am planning on wearing whatever I can now! Also, I would love to hear you opinions on them so please post some comments if you have any =]
This coat is plain, but it is still adorable. The detailing is to die for! It is a light coat so it will be perfect to wear in the fall to keep warm and I may even be able to come up with a few outfits in which I can wear it not as a coat that I take off when not outside if you know what I mean.
This blazer is pretty cool. Except for the fact that it is huge on me, I do like it. It would be perfect for fall but I don't know if I am going to be able to pull it off because it's so big. Maybe I can get it fitted but i don't know if my mom will let me. What do you guys think?
Jacket- Mom's (Luciano Tempesta)/ Shorts- Levi's/ Tee- Old Navy
Okay, just like the pink jacket, I am in love with this red one too. I was so excited about it that I even wore it today with my Levi's and a plain black tee. Everything about it just amazes me and I can not wait to wear this in the future when it's colder out. It has been a little hot for it today, but I don't care I couldn't not wear it ! I think I will probably wearing this little number with jeans and leggings and possibly some skirts if I get some that match. This will definitely not be the last time you see me wearing this!
