Life Should Be a Party!

 Top: F21 Skirt: Down East Shoes: LuLus Bracelet: F21

If it hadn't been for the 30 for 30 I would have never thought of putting this outfit together &I think I like it :) I added the last photo even though it isn't very flattering. I was laughing really hard and did one of those head thrown back laughs where you can see straight up my nose. But I thought it embodied the right spirit and attitude for my first Life Should Be a Party post! haha :)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So if you read my post yesterday you would see that I didn't realize that the first day of the new series Life Should Be a Party was starting on July 4th. Which isn't a bad thing, I mean talk about starting off with a BANG :) (haha bad joke) but it just means most people wont be around. So if you want to post it tomorrow, then coolio cool. But I figured since I said I would be starting today, I will. Plus today should literally be a PARTY for you, so you guys should have tons of things this week to talk about!

Little to Big things I am celebrating in my life lately...
+ Learning how to use this portable laminator at work, haha, we need to celebrate our small victories here people! haha
+ I love how every time I go home to San Diego, I instantly feel the moisture soak up into my skin, and hair. That is the BEST feeling ever.
+ I love the smell of salt in the air, I didn't realize how much I would miss it until I moved away from home.
+ Watching my little sister, the baby of the family graduate from high school. CRAZY to think she is becoming an "adult."
+ Being with almost everyone in my family. 15 out of 16 of us were there to celebrate graduations together as a family.
+ Spending time kissing and squeezing my nieces and nephews!
+ The way Trevor talks to me in the mornings, haha. It is my favorite time of the day.
+ Deciding that instead of hating my new second job where I sit alone for the whole day, I should take advantage of that fact, and start doing fun little dances in my cubicle  to wake me up a bit, have fun, and in attempts to not die from boredom.
...... then getting caught doing this said dance. HA! :) The laughing that ensued after made my day.
+ The fact that I am free. I know I could never truly comprehend what it would be like to not have my freedom, because I have always had it. I am so thankful for all the people who have and do make that possible. God Bless America. Happy 4th people.

You will find whatever you are looking for in life.
LOOK FOR THE GOOD.
(and you will find it.)

  5. You look adorable, Alycia! I've thought about the 30 for 30...but honestly, what I do in the summer limits me to less already and it's mostly active wear haha xD

    I'm glad you're enjoying your second job even if you're alone for awhile! Making the best of it is the best lol! and dancing is even MORE fun.


    P.S. - You're awesome because I see SO MANY PUNS. Hahahah xD happy 4th!

  7. I love the combination of stripes and pattern. I often find that limiting my choice makes me more creative and come up with new outfits I would never have tried. I also love that you have so much to celebrate in life.

  13. That IS a great outfit combo. One of my close friends is obsessed with "mustard yellow," and I think she'd flip out over this outfit -- especially the shoes!
