i confess...

Top: Jcrew Necklace: Anthropologie Skirt: Forever21 Shoes: Target

These heels are seriously the most comfortable things ever! I love them, and they are so versatile! I have been wearing them with tons of stuff this summer.

*Documenting my personal style to make sure I keep the promise to myself, to always be fully dressed with a smile.

  ♥ ♥ ♥

+   I like to watch trashy reality television. I know, horrible. But before you go judging me I am not THAT bad, I hate Jersey Shore kind of stuff... but I do watch every single Real Housewives there is hahaha. My favorites are most definitely, New Jersey and Orange County. New York used to be good, but all the smart and funny people left like Bethany (which is another show I love!) haha.

+   I absolutely HATE chocolate chips. When I find out that a dessert has them in them, I am utterly disappointed. I have been known to pick every single one of them out of a chocolate chip cookie before... haha

+   Trevor and I had root beer floats pretty much every night this week, haha. Whoever though of putting ice cream in soda was brilliant.

  There is a part of me that hates washing my hands in the a public restroom. I can't help but feel like everything I touch just to wash my hands is making them even worse then they already are! (don't worry, I still wash them, but I don't touch anything after)

+   While on the topic of public restrooms... I always hover. Never, ever, ever sit.

+   I confess I have been a horrible blogger these past few months. Real life has been swallowing me up. Please forgive me. SO even though it took forever to announce, the four WINNERS of the last giveaway on my blog go to....

  2. I am with you on the Real Housewives! Those shows are my one reality show obsession! And New York is so not the same without Bethenny!

  3. Hovering is SO important. So important. I do the same thing.

    Trashy, reality TV is my favorite hobby. Real Housewives of ANYTHING is my #1 addiction. I love Jersey, and Beverly Hills. New York USED to be good, and I'm really trying to like the new ladies, but I don't.

    Actually, even Jersey is depressing me. I usually do a weekly recap and I didn't bother last week!

  4. I love love love that combo of the denim with the mustard- so cute! I usually avoid public bathrooms if I can, and if I can't, I always hover too! It's become one of my many talents.

  5. First- your outfit is great- I love the skirt and denim! Second- I am RIGHT there with you with the trashy reality tv! I don't even know why I watch them all, but I do. And I probably won't stop. Real Housewives, Bethenny, and the Bachelor/Bachelorette!

  6. I love Bethany and met her and Jason once. She was pregnant with Bryn. I love all the housewive shows except when DC was on. Being from NJ I have met a few. I know its trashy but I could and do watch the episodes over and over again.

  8. Love this outfit! You look gorgeous. I'm the same way with reality tv. We don't have cable but use hulu so there's always full seasons to get caught up in. But no jersey shore :)

  12. You are so adorable...and stylish! And I'm guilty of enjoying trashy reality tv too. Oops.

  13. I've been going back and forth on getting a denim shirt, but you're outfit settled it for me. Definitely a purchase that is worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I confess we are on serious summer schedule here sleeping in until 9 or 10. We all have a rude awakening when school starts in 2 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've been dying to get a mustard colored skirt. It looks great with the chambray.

    Also, nothing wrong with slacking in the blogging department. Every now and then we all need a good kick in the butt to get off the computer and do some "real" living. Kudos! ;)

  21. I love those heels! I'm only in Target like 2x a week, how have I never seen them!?! And you don't like chocolate chips...whhhhaaat? Say it isnt so! I guess since you like rootbeer floats, reality TV, and have cute heels it kinda makes up for it! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. You look gorgeous. Love the outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hahah no chocolate chips??? This is so sad! Please tell me you can eat it at least if the chocolate chips are melted??

    And I LOVE your outfit. Total babe.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You look absolutely lovely! I love that outfit. I want to copy-cat it soon! Interesting confessions. Reality TV is a major guilty pleasure... along with ABC family shows! My Favorite RHW show is New Jersey and New York. And I agree, whoever thought of mixing ice creama and soda is Genius! I LOVE ice cream/soda floats!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I absolutely dislike those housewife shows, haha! Since a month or so we are able to get E! on our Belgian television network and O-M-G that show called Big Rich Texas or something is so annoying. I just can't watch it, it too terrible, haha. Also, I can't tell the difference between the more aged women and the teenagers with all that botox, haha.

    Anyways, I LOVE your outfit here! That skirt has been on my wishlist, but my F21 only had one left in a different size :( xo Nikki

  26. Alycia I love your blog!! New Follower :) oh yeah, I hate washing my hands in public restrooms too..lol I can't help but imagine Im making the germ situation worse by doing it. Thank goodness for little bottles of hand sanitizer :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. just might have to copy your shoes... target?! seriously?! why is it so great!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My hubby loves Jersey Shore. I can't stand it. Gives me a headache. I love me some Real Housewives though. There's a newbie named Carol on NY. I really like her a lot. Very dry & sarcastic. My kind of girl.

  29. Love your little list of confessions. I think mine are too numerous to mention, but eating a Sprinkles cupcake this weekend probably figures into the list, ha!

  32. you look SO cute! love those shoes!

    & your distaste for chocolate chips cracks me up...I don't think I've ever heard of someone who doesn't like chocolate chips! ha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. haha i'm definitely the same about bathrooms! but i think i have a mental block that makes it impossible for me to even GO in a public bathroom.. i could be out for 12 hours and see my house and suddenly feel like i've never peed in my life!

    ReplyDelete
  34. same here with the public restrooms. hovering and not touching anything after washing my hands is key!! Love the mustard yellow skirt on you! And thank you for your sweet words :) cute blog by the way!

  37. Sometimes real life takes the front seat to blogging, and you should totally not apologize for that! It just means you know where your priorities are!

    That's an adorable outfit, btw!

  40. I don't love chocolate, but I do love things (ice cream, cookies) with chocolate chips in them!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I always carry hand sanitizer with me because I feel the same about public restrooms. And I always hover but I'm getting worried that its going to be harder to do as I get farther along in my pregnancy! I love those shoes but not your choice of desserts! haha

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love this look! That skirt is fantastic!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I always put toilet paper in the toilet before I go so nobody can hear me and I always hover as well.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You look pretty! Great shirt;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ugh! Public toilets are one of my greatest fears! I even hover on the one at work - I just can't do it!!!
    I'm also a terrible maid, but the one place that will always be sparkling in our home is the toilet and bathroom :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I watch trashy TV too. No Jersey Shore or Pregant Teenager shows and I just can't handle the Bachelor or Bachelorette.
    I like the Housewives and I also like Sweet Home Alabama on the Country Channel.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow, i haven't been here in awhile. LOL! I love your new design!! And washing my hands in a public bathroom grosses me out too. Hand sanitizer after the wash is a must. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That outfit is amazing! Cute shoes that are comfortable too are tough to find, so I must give you a virtual high five on that one! And the whole Real Housewives series is a weakness of mine, too...especially Orange County.

    ReplyDelete
  49. i am digging that yellow. i just bought a bedspread at target in that color with light blue sheets

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wow, tose heels are a great target find. They are adorable.

    I love trashy reality tv too, including Jersey Shore an RHOBH. I can't even help myself.
