18/30 Old Navy button-down; Express jeans; Target wedges; Thrifted belt; Charlotte Russe necklace.

This is the golf course behind my parent's house. Now you know why I was so in awe of how green Tennessee was.

In other news, something about the summer (and probably the studying too) makes me want to put the least amount of effort possible in doing my hair. During the school year I rarely wore my hair up, but it's just been so much easier to do so lately. (This tutorial from Keiko Lynn is my favorite if you are hair-challenged like I am)

  6. You figure looks amazing in this!

  7. You have such a great figure!  I love your jeans!!

    I've given up on doing my hair most days.  I think I'm just going to get it chopped so I don't have to deal with it.  I just sling it up on the top of my head with a clip on most days, anyway, so what's the point?

  8. I love the necklace under the collar, it's almost like a sweet girly tie. and updos for summer are a must!

  9. Oh, I know - I'm going on about day 6 of not touching a hair dryer (and that's a lot for me!)

    Love this necklace with the shirt. I can never get them to lay right under the collar, but yours looks perfect!

  14. Super cuteness!  That necklace looks really cute with that top!  And your hair is A-mazing.  I totally tried that tutorial from Keiko a while back. While it was a WIN, I (or my hair rather) was a fail... WAY baby thin hair is impossible to put into a messy bun... sad day :(  But you my friend look WINNING ;)

  20. you look so cute in the plaid! and I like the necklace you chose to go with it!

  21. I've been looking at that same Old Navy gingham shirt, but in yellow. Great minds think alike. ;) I like how you wear your necklace over the shirt.

    I'm in the process of growning my hair out, and I can't wait to be able to wear a bun or ponytail again.

  22. I like the necklace with the button-down. Very cute. :)

  23. Lydia, love your jeans! They make your legs look sooo long! I like that your outfit is casual, but still really special because of the cool red belt and necklace.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your blog name is so cute!  And I love your gingham shirt which is a little more casual paired with that awesome dressy necklace.  So adorable :)

  25. Wow, my husband would be very jealous that your parents live right by a golf course! I love this, the necklace and belt add such great touches!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, I can't believe that is a golf course! That is definitely not what a golf course looks like here in Tennessee!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love the gingham!  And love the necklace you put on with it.  Definitely spices it up a bit.  Great outfit!

    And about the hair....I'm about to chop mine off so I feel your pain.

  30. Very country chic. I love the idea of wearing a bib necklace over a buttoned up blouse. I have done that couple times as well. Looks great.

  32. I love the red belt! It's adds such a great pop of colour.

  33. I can always tell when people are from out of town because they take photos of ALL the greenery in Oregon--the grass, the trees, the freaking weeds. I think I've spent my whole life around so much greenery that I don't know what it's like not to have it, haha. I love the skinny red belt you have there and your necklace! (Apparently my thing today is noticing accessories...) And your toes match!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love your necklace!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's exactly how I am!  I've been growing mine out for a while, but I have a feeling I'll have the urge to chop it all off soon.  

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks!  And I don't think we appreciate it as much since none of us golf, but it's definitely nice to see that in our backyard instead of an alley or something.
